The meat of the "Lifespan of the Tathagata" chapter prior to the 'skilled physician' story is Shakyamuni speaking to learned Bodhisattvas of the true nature of Buddha. Timeless. Always extant. Most profoundly only to be experienced in this Samsaric Condition of Mind.

When the Buddha Shakyamuni passed into extinction, the term used was extinction, not death or died. This is because the fundamental teaching of life contains a state defined as Samsara; a temporary realm of the cycles of birth/death. This is the definition of moment to moment birth/death cycles as the perceptive timeline of Samsaric conditioned existence. There is nothing "beyond" or "before" or "after". There is no "soul" or "self" or any thing, remember the teaching of "Impermanence" and dependent origination.
