I don't think that even Buddhism allows that.

Depends on the version of Buddhism and who you ask... but yes, even the utter destruction of the mind.

Of course, 'utter destruction' is not a well-defined term. Depending on who you ask, nothing in Buddhism is ever actually destroyed. Or in the Dust hypothesis, or the Library of Babel... the existence of the mind never ends, because we've never beaten our wives in the first place.
