Your theory is correct. Non-existence is a delusional idea. An idea that exists only in denial of existence.
Time is a delusion. So the idea of dying and experiencing non-existence at some certain moment is delusional.
The entire manifested world is a delusion where Reality itself is denied. Nothing but Reality exists. Period. Nothing outside or besides it exists. Period. Any experience, thought, feeling otherwise is delusional.
This delusional state we find ourselves in, where time is "real" and space and the universe "exists" is the closest thing to non-existence anyone will ever come too.. and yet "everyone" only "exists" in this delusion and nowhere else.
