在此鏈接中,詳細介紹了佛陀傳教後佛教衰落所宣講的細節。

我與您分享以下內容,摘錄自上述鏈接的頁面

The Buddha said that after His parinibbaana, only for 1,000 years will the monks be able to acquire the analytical knowledge (Patisambhida), or what we know as Arahanthship or deep knowledge. Then, as time goes on, they will only be able to attain Anaagami (Never return). And then only Sakadagami (Once return), and finally, only Sotapanna (Stream enterer). With the death of the last disciple who has attained Sotapanna, the attainments will disappear.

這是上述問題。據我了解,經過parinibbana一段時間後,一個人可以達到的最大成就從arahant變為anagami等。但這是不合邏輯的,因為如果一個人達到anaagaami,他/她最多只能有1種生活,在這種情況下,他/她將成為一種荒誕的生活,這使上述說法是錯誤的,除非這意味著該人將以天生的身份出生,也許具有很長的生命,直到下一個佛陀。這很混亂。

All Anagamis are born in one of the five Suddhavasa Brahma realms. There they will attain Arahanthship. Yes, they have a very long life span. The lowest realm 'Aviha' has a life span of 1000 Maha Kalpas. So they will see many Buddhas in the future before entering Parinibbana.

The text is talking about monks. That means the human world. Divine beings are not discussed here.
