Thats nice, now lets talk about PCT and suicide

Lazare, Mark, Crisis counselor, Phoenix AZ

When a control system is all out of purposes, believes they,
can no longer
make effective changes, and perceive only disturbances. The
ideations, plans,
and intentions of suicide come to volition.

I suspect that suicide is the result of massive persisting error signals
associated with loss of control. Suicide allows the person to gain
control again but at a very high price for families and friends. It
might be that a program that demonstrated to the client that he or she
can still exercise control would be a first step in recovery.
