In human culture base on knowledge as guide / basis , both is true ........but in Buddhism nothing is true or false ...death is just tiny part of a natural process by living towards emptiness , life is just a road , a journey for living ......suffering is a reflection of emotion ...emotion is the cause of existence ....Buddhism is a natural process leading to nothingness ..........

Is human knowledge connected life to suffering , is human knowledge connected death to suffering ...Buddhism is beyond knowledge ...........in Buddhism death or life is just a tiny part of a natural process .
