Agreed. Yes, there is. The only way to eliminate this "perceiver" is
to enter mahanirvana or to leave our 7-plane system altogether.
And, of course, the skandas and shistas or "karmic residue"
remain as seeds for the next incarnation. But our sense of identity,
which Dal wants to keep continuous, breaks during death for
the vast majority of us (only Adepts can maintain this continuity)
just as it does during our dreams.
