I am most familiar with Il Won buddhism and read and studied their holy scripture book. While it does touch on what you are saying, it is not the main thrust of the teachings, it is more of a conclusion of the practice. So not something to jump to, but someing taht evolved within.

The teachings have to do with universal principals, called Darma. All religions evolve around those principals (some better, some worse), but can never be exactly on it due to distractions of this world interfering with our perceptions. But in the end, the study will have one realize that the religion is not needed, as it is not the Darma, but it helps some get there to the Darma. So that is your head hurting problem, you have to cast off religion, and be ready for that, to get to the point where those things come into realization, but you are still inside the religion trying to realize that from inside the religion, can't be done.

The path is the path to enlightenment, when one realized those universal principals in their pure form, what things are etc. This is when those existing/nonexisting, all is nothing, etc. things come in. But that is for a very dedicated soul, many stop when they get to the inner peace level. Some chose to go on and get to enlightenment, and a rare few after achieving it make a vow to keep comming back till the world is free from suffering.
