I thought Buddha evaporated into nothingness, transcending the cycle of death and rebirth. The buddhists acknowledge the possibility of ascending to a
god-like state of being and they renounce this too as a form of rebirth, so it cannot be buddha you are seeing in your meditations, merely an
enlightened spirit claiming to be a buddha or your own psychological expectations of what a buddha might look like.
Personally, I think the buddhists are misguided. Nihilism is not superior to transcendence and physical immortality is the best because it is
replicatable for all people. Life is not suffering. Life is whatever you choose to focus on, and my life is pleasurable. It has moments of suffering,
but I don't dwell on those.
