As for Buddha -- what's beyond the void?

Nothing

Void is equal to NO feeling,no hearing,no perception,
If one have read one of his story, where 500 noisey carts passed by, Buddha did not hear even a thing.

If you want to know the Void, Get this Panna Paramitta Sutra
Gate Gate Paragate Parasamgate Bodhisattva(
Kuan Yin)and listen with your ear element.
For chinese, it is the great compassionate mantra
Po Ye Po Lo Mi To Sin Ching.
What's on your mind now........ooooooooooooooo la la....Kind Regards

I know my view may seem a bit simplistic and even slightly disturbing... as sentient beings we like to think that there is some higher meaning for our existence. but ask yourself this. what is the meaning of life for a bird? or a fish? or a monkey? or any other animal? for millions of years, the only real meaning/purpose of life on earth has been the struggle to pass on genes. perhaps this isn't really a meaning... perhaps there is no real meaning to life, it just is what it is.
though humans have evolved into a conscious and self aware animal we are nontheless still animals.
does the fact that we have become self aware make a difference? do our lives really have more meaning than all the living things that have gone before us?
love, friendship, fulfillment etc.... all these things may give our life meaning, but can we truly say that any of these are THE meaning of life?

I think I'm out of my depth here.

You are right with passing the genes for the majority.

Only human has the ability for Higher consciousness that leads to the higher being.(only few of them) Humans who did evil will fall to animals in their next life and the cycle goes on and on(on the higher side).

Like the simple innocence grading Freaky did, human minds has even more  grading.
