Nice post!

Buddhahood (perfection) is achievable by a human.

Arhantship is the end of rebirth.

By dying in a jhana state you are reborn in a godly realm.

The Buddha discovered the jhanas. I don`t know where i read that , but is false as fuck.

Samsara (existence) is beginningless

You have countless past lifetimes.

Well that is pretty much it.

The samsara and rebirths is interesting, because I always feel myself going into a trance when I read stuff like that. Kinda like what happened when they put me under to take my wisdom teeth out!
