"When the aggregates arise, decay and die, O bhikkhus, every moment you are born, decay and die"

So if there is death.....and based on the teachings of the different planes of existence, your next life will be the results of this very life.....so how does death relate to this?
If there is death there should be no future life?...
So are you still dying or do you live already?
For those who know, it will be neither dying or alive!
Anyway, the point being made is this. When we say consciousness is impermanent, is this not the same as one saying life is impermanent?
Consciousness applies to every one of us, we all "know" it.....it is part of a human being.
When we say life is impermanent, we all "know" this too as we were born and we will live and die one day.
As consciousness is part of our life, our being, they are both impermanent.....even knowing this, right now, and based on the teaching of future lives, knowing that consciousness and life are both impermanent.....
The simple question is this:
Knowing they are both impermanent does not allow one to escape samsara does it?
Does Knowing they are both impermanent mean we will not be reborn again in other planes of existence?
Do we see the limitations of the OP?
More importantly, do we see a way out?
