    Anyone here believe all of existence ends/begins simultaneously with the death/birth of a certain unknown human?

    I'm struggling to wrap my head around how existence could be dependent upon a human.

    Please help me to understand what you're actually asking here...

    Existence aka reality was here before us. And it will be here after us.

    From the person's perspective, yes. No More existence. From an external view, no. Life goes on without her.

    I believe "that's it." I'd be surprised if life goes on but if it did it would be akin to having multiple chances on earth to make things right. One existence, many lifetimes. If I had direct experience, that would be my take.

    It is most likely hinting at the all things made new aspect found in the Bible or the Baha'i Writings, to name a couple of sources.

    Here is the concept from the Bible,

    Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here"

    Or the Baha'u'llah offerd,

    “Canst thou discover any one but Me, O Pen, in this Day? What hath become of the creation and the manifestations thereof? What of the names and their kingdom? Whither are gone all created things, whether seen or unseen? What of the hidden secrets of the universe and its revelations? Lo, the entire creation hath passed away! Nothing remaineth except My Face, the Ever-Abiding, the Resplendent, the All-Glorious. This is the Day whereon naught can be seen except the splendors of the Light that shineth from the face of Thy Lord, the Gracious, the Most Bountiful. Verily, We have caused every soul to expire by virtue of Our irresistible and all-subduing sovereignty. We have, then, called into being a new creation, as a token of Our grace unto men. I am, verily, the All-Bountiful, the Ancient of Days.”
    (Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, XIV p. 29)

    Yes and no.

    They are firstly unknown, but the new creation makes them known.

    No, since it is most likely a human conceit to even imagine such. :oops: (As to what value humans have in the larger sphere)

    "All of existence" is quite a big thing to "end/begin" simultaneously.

    We have the earth, then our solar system and our milky way, and other milky ways, and those milky ways not yet discovered by us.
    And knowing these facts, you believe you could possibly know whether or not all of this could end/begin simultaneously???

    IF the above were possible THEN it could be that coincidentally a certain unknown human dies in this process too

    "all of existence" ending is one thing, but "all of existence" beginning is way beyond your "pay grade", or not?
