Therefore there is a differentiation between The Unmade as a concept/ideation of the intellect and The Unmade as a ultimate reality, with the attainment of Parinibbana the conception of Nibbana no longer arises either because there is no more ‘mind’, or ‘thought’, or ‘consciousness’ to recollect, imagine or think about it.
I like the use of parentheses to describe ‘mind’, or ‘thought’, or ‘consciousness’ which are all sankharas for ultimately there is no mind/consciousness/Self.

I see the final nibbana or 'death' simply as the final cessation of all that is experienced.
"Now what, bhikkhus, is the Nibbana-element with no residue left? Here a bhikkhu is an arahant... completely released through final knowledge. For him, here in this very life, all that is experienced, not being delighted in, will be extinguished. That, bhikkhus, is called the Nibbana-element with no residue left.
It sees to me that you see it as i see it.

Buddhism requires faith

Unless you develop faith, you cannot understand Nirvana
