Oh, I got this.

The worst possible thing that could possibly happen to Eirin Yagokoro: to be rendered immaterial.

She used to be the Mind of the Moon, one of the founders and linchpins of the greatest civilization known. What she's been doing for the past millennium and a half?

Paid vacation with some light babysitting duty.

That's bad enough, but what would happen, were the civilization of the moon to ever fall? She'd just be some smartassed town doctor.

She'd be like the former United States Secretary of the Interior after some third-world shit-tier country nuked the US into oblivion.

That is the worst thing that could ever happen to Eirin Yagokoro.

How long has she actually been on Earth? Kaguya has been stuck here for a lot longer, right? Also, I thought she didn't actually take the elixir to become immortal, and just has long-life because she's from the Moon.

Anyway, from the looks of things in SSiB, she still is the Brain of the Moon, and it was with her help that the Lunarians almost thwarted Yukari. Her first invasion a long while prior was ruined with the help of Eirin, didn't it? Or am I mis-remembering?

That's stupid, there are at least two Touhous that are inmortal, most of them have lived for hundreds of years, others have lived for so long that it's age is only stated as "lived for a long time", and if that isn't enough, there are several wandering spirits too that per definition, can't die.

Every being that dies (and isn't immortal) gets its soul sent to the Yama for judgement, the spirit is then sent to wherever the Yama sends it (there are way too many places) and resides there for eternity like one of those spit-looking ghosts. Yuyuko is an exception because something about her death powers.

Wrong. Reincarnation.

If that were the case then there would be no point for souls to be sent to these places. Reincarnation only works for a few beings who are related to it somehow (Buddhism and other things) I think.

There is. Souls "serve some time," so to speak, in their earned afterlife. Or maybe that's just for hell? I'm not entirely sure.

Hmm... Lets play with the idea of cirno. She's always seen as somewhat of a nuisance as well as stupid.
Now what if after such a long time people have finally become fed up with her?
All her friends and people she would constantly challenge to fights would now just shun and ignore her, telling her what a nuisance she is.
After some time as passed and unable to take it, cirno would then cause some sort of small incident as a cry for attention thus Reimu is forced to come onto the scene.. Utterly pissed off, would just beat cirno to a pulp untill she couldn't move and just spit on her and then leave her there for any passing youkai to do what they will with her beaten body.

She doesn't rely on it, in fact, that thing is the reason she was despised along with her sister. Originally it later allowed her to speak to animals but now everyone can morph into a semi-human form so it isn't worth anything right now, except gimmicks in doujins.

Profile (Game's booklet written by ZUN):
"Her usual routine is to find faults of the deceased and decide where they will be sent to: Hell, Heaven, or somewhere else"

You mean satori as a species? They don't even have a 3rd eye, they're just ugly monkeys.

And the picture is only speculation from the wiki, the only thing in common is that they have a vein-thing running around their body.

And that they're sisters, and that one of them has sealed/severed her heart. This is a fairly well-known painting. If it's a coincidence that, it's a pretty damn impressive one.

I still think its just some symbolic thing, hence their existance in the first place as opposed to the classical Satori.
