Suicide. Ants. Humans.

Could human suicide have evolutionary roots in self-sacrificial behaviors like those seen in species such as honeybees and ants? A Florida State University researcher who is one of the nation’s foremost experts in suicide is trying to find out. “Humans are a species that is eusocial, and that’s an important starting point”, the researcher said. “That suggests a certain set of characteristics, including some really striking self-sacrifice behaviors”. Those eusocial behaviors, understood as part of what is called inclusive fitness in evolutionary biology, are adaptive. “The idea is if you give up yourself, which would include your genes, it can be evolutionarily speaking ‘worth it’ if you spare or save multiple copies of your genes in your relatives,” Joiner said. “It’s a net benefit on the gene level”. [1]

Doing the right thing because it is “worth it”. How unethical.

Doing the right thing because the… hive decided so. How unhuman.

Doing the right thing just BECAUSE! How irrational! And thus, true.

Blood tests, suicide, the unexplained…

Could a blood test predict whether a person is at risk of committing suicide? For the first time, a set of proteins in the blood have been linked to suicidal behaviour. People who commit suicide appear to share a number of biological traits, regardless of any underlying conditions. This hints that suicidal behaviour may be a distinct disorder. [1]

Oh, how are we afraid of the unknown. How do we despise the unexplained.
We hate seeing people doing things we do not understand. They MUST have a reason to do it! A reason WE can understand!

Put the unknown into the small little boxes of your brain. Destroy it.

Suicides falling. Something to worry about…

Suicide rates are falling in the “civilized” world. [1]

Something to be happy about? Or something to worry about?

Remember that suicide is the ultimate expression of human freedom. But our society does not leave room for freedom. It dictates what you do and how you do it.

That reminds me of Wilhelm Reich… “If you were free you wouldn’t know how to live”.

Another “famous” singer committed suicide (1). What’s the matter with all these people who have everything but at the same time nothing?

Sure, her husdand died. But so do the husbands of so many other women who do NOT kill them selves… And other famous persons committing suicide do not even have such an excuse. And I am not even referring to cases of “famous” people destroying their lives not with suicide but with crimes (call me… “Bullet in the Chamber” or “I shoot whenever and whoever I want because I am a full-of-steroids disabled athlete”).

How many more examples do we need to realize the obvious?

How can people with terminal cancer or who have lost their children manage to live their life, but a famous person cannot under much better circumstances?

Maybe besides expensive rehab all these people want is just a hard slapping on the face! Primitive, yet effective.

Because all things considered, this kind of suicide is just another way of stating that “I am different from all of you. I am something SPECIAL. I have to suicide even though you wouldn’t in such a case”… An ultimate attempt to declare publicly the importance of a person who – just being hit by death – started to realize that he is not…

We are all important. Live well. Die well.

Don’t be an arrogant idiot in the meanwhile.
