DH: "I think this is best understood as poetic exhortation not scientific explanation."Yeah, it doesn't extend beyond the subjective, but it's interesting, delving into suicide. Most people are hardwired for self preservation though, so even a negative answer won't make them kill themselves.I wonder why Albert Camus considered suicide to be such a large problem.
