For me, the four Noble truths of Buddhism and its eightfold path helps me prepare for my next life.
There is nothing beyond what is appearing - whatever is happening is what there is. Can you see or hear more than what is happening? Even if memory appears now - it is happening. I don't understand what you mean when you say 'the observer and the I' - sorry.

can you say for a certainty you see beyond the illusion of what is happening- the appearance of the body the mind, the ravenous effects of time, the observer and the I?
What is it that you are calling 'illusion' and aware of what?
I'm not debating whether it not it is illusion or if you can be aware of it, but rather does that knowledge enable you to experience real realit?
And second... If that knowledge doesn't give you objectivity... Then what is the purpose of continually telling yourself this is all an illusion if you are unable to see beyond? At that point bit doesn't matter whether its an illusion or not, it is real enough to you since you cannot see beyond it...

in other words, me and you don't exist, unless the "i" says it exists?
to the observer it all happens, exists, continues.. the non observer doesn't see it.
and we can't know anything because we know nothing? and once we die, we are separated from what we observed?
