Suicide within ITLADian theory
Well it's been over 4 years since i was studying one of the great founding fathers of Sociology, this of course being the wonderful Emile Durkheim who gave such a marvelous contribution to all of Sociological theory but in particular to the study of Suicide.
For all of you who perhaps aren't aware of his work, maybe this would be a good time for some Wikipedia!
So taking all of these things into account, what are the implications of this for Tony's theory? (excuse the fact that some of these questions are the same dressed differently! It's simply me trying to encourage lots of questioning in this area!)
Is Suicide a discourse for certain individuals or is it a Sin?(I don't necessarily mean in a religious context)
What would the Daemon's influence be in such an outcome? - Is it possible this decision could be encouraged? Surely there are recorded stories of voices persuading the individual to choose both paths, but not necessarily from the Daemon.
Would there still be a life review played back in real time?
Would an outcome of suicide indicate a weak Daemonic influence or merely a necessary chain of events?
If we are all making subtle changes each time striving for the perfect life/frequency is it likely that a particular individual committing suicide could ever be the desired ending (for them in their reality)?
Is Suicide an indication that an individual simply has a lot of growing and evolving to experience in order to achieve a healthier life path?
That should get the ball rolling!? You get the point right? Suicide, how does this change things at all?
