For those who are curious, this page has a few charts about the realms of existence. One of them gives the lifespans of each.

Thank you for your link but this does not really answer my primary question of how the lifespan comes to an end.

There is always an official executioner. If you try to take his place, It is like trying to be a master carpenter and cutting wood. If you try to cut wood like a master carpenter, you will only hurt your hand.
