I am very new to buddhism, so my understanding is very basic. My previous world views were very materialistic and deterministic. It might not be surprising that the most confusing concept I find so far is rebirth.
Lets take this theoretical situation: Somebody is declared brain dead.
- Does this person gets reborn?
- What if medicine improved and we would bring this person back to life?
- What if this person would be left in this condition forever by keeping that person alive with medical resources?
Thank you for your help!
