Explanation:
Perseus gives me nothing else on "existence" but vita.

Dominus existentia ipsa (est)


Explanation:
Dear Seb,

I see this is still open. Just an advice: to make it even more Latin, delete the verb "est". It will look and sound MUCH more Latin :)

Best wishes, Flavio

Explanation:
I agree with Paola :) Though, I think existentia has a wider meaning than "vita", which I think it life itself, being "existentia" the abstract concept... :)

Oh dear, what am I discussing ehe... philosophy? ;))

Best wishes, FLavio
