What does this mean?
Means that there is not life after death and the human ( or animal ) that will born after me will NOT me but another sentient ?
This means that after death in Buddhism there is not any life for ME ( death = end of ME ) ?
Buddhists generally dislike the term reincarnation because it literally means that there is a soul that incarnates after death by taking on a new body, and Buddhism describes it in a very different way.
Buddhism teaches that a person is made up of 5 types of things. They are form (the physical body), feeling (the sensation of something as pleasant, unpleasant, or neither), perception, volition, and consciousness. All of these things are dependent on conditions and are impermanent. Also, none of them can be regarded as being one's self, or belonging to one's self in any ultimate sense.
Essentially, a person is a continuous process of impersonal physical and mental phenomena that come into being, cease, and be replaced by another physical or mental phenomenon. When a person dies, this process continues.
