Buddha did not achieve nirvana living life, in his dream state of mind he was able to leave this world and leave reality behind.<quoted text>
Exactly how did he achieve a state of nothingness while he was alive? It sounds like a self-induced coma to me. And is nothingness something to be desired? Life is the object, not nothingness. It seems impossible that a person can achieve nothingness while alive. Well, that is not taking into account that some persons are dead though alive, so perhaps that is what is meant by living nothingness? Or non-existent bliss? When a person is truly dead-dead, they probably won't know it.:-)
That was Buddha's cure for suffering, diseases, and etc.
When you eliminate your moral conscience you are in a state of insanity.
You feel no remorse in doing evil.
You achieve nirvana a state of mind free from reality.
