If im way off here please help me understand.
P.S. This post was so long i feared to read it. But did and im still here so, thanks.
Nothing transmigrates from this moment to the next, nothing from one life to another life. This process of continually producing and being produced may best be compared with a wave on the ocean. In the case of a wave there is not the smallest quantity of water that actually travels over the surface of the sea. The wave-structure that seems to hasten over the surface of the water, though creating the appearance of one and the same mass of water, is in reality nothing but a continued rising and falling of ever new masses of water. And the rising and falling is produced by the transmission of force originally generated by wind. Just so the Buddha did not teach that it is an ego-entity, or a soul, that hastens through the ocean of rebirth, but that it is in reality merely a life-wave which, according to its nature and activities, appears here as man, there as animal, and elsewhere as invisible being.
Because I'm not a qualified teacher, just a student I should not try and explain but maybe this
because the Buddha denied the existence of a soul or anything that transmigrates between this life and the next.

Evolutes of Prakriti
... Prakriti, which can be loosely described as unmanifest, primordial matter (which is subtler than the gross realm of quantum physics). This Prakriti ("matter") is infused with pure consciousness, which is called Purusha. Here, however, we are not just talking about the evolutes of chains of thought and emotions, but also the evolutes of the instruments by which we think and emote. This is taking us to the core of our being.

I can say this however with certainty - Guatama Buddha certainly taught the doctrine of reincarnation.
... there is no way to verify which teachings are corrupt and which are not.
The Buddha might even be a complete fabrication
Siddhārtha Gautama (Sanskrit; Pali: Siddhattha Gotama) was a spiritual teacher in the northern region of the Indian subcontinent who founded Buddhism. He is generally seen by Buddhists as the Supreme Buddha (Sammāsambuddha) of our age. The time of his birth and death are uncertain: most early 20th-century historians date his lifetime from c. 563 BCE to 483 BCE; more recently, however, at a specialist symposium on this question, the majority of those scholars who presented definite opinions gave dates within 20 years either side of 400 BCE for the Buddha's death, with others supporting earlier or later dates.

The Buddha might even be a complete fabrication, something invented by intelligent people who simply disagreed with Hindu teachings.
What do you think of the Tibetan buddhist way of debating the issues you post here?
Neither does it 'exist' nor does it 'not exist,' nor does it 'exist and not exist,' and 'neither does it exist and not exist.'
