This may sound like an unusual question, but - is it possible in theory to destroy the rupa heavens - not by avoiding rebirth there, but for other sentient beings?

Not the tusita heaven - which I understand (correctly or not ha) is part of kamadhatu and strictly one of the jhanas :)

Thanks !

  • If I'm not mistaken, all realms will be at some point be destroyed and would reappear again, forever, in cycles.

There should be an observer experience any plane of existence. Once the observer is no more, in a relative sense they cease to exist.

All these are experienced through consciousness. When consciousness cease to exist so does all the places of existence.
