Humans began to question why they existed in this seemingly endless area that we call the universe. Some people answered that question with religion, family, labor, and love – but others saw these only as ways of coping with an apparent lack of objective meaning and purpose. The people that found absolutely no purpose turned to suicide to end their emptiness – and continue to do so to this very day. Suicide exists as a response to societal illusions of goals and purpose, and not as the actions of deranged or sad individuals.
Society does not concern itself with the individuals that make up the whole, but rather that the whole functions. If society loses a large portion of its members to suicide, it will be unable to sustain itself.
Along with lack of meaning in the universe, suicide also correlates with an individual’s level of socialization. Individuals with low socialization realize that in the eyes of society, they do not mean anything. These people may not have jobs, families, or friends. They believe that whether or not they wake up the next day, the world will keep on turning. An individual with a high level of socialization becomes disillusioned with societal expectations that once kept him going. He can no longer cope with the pressure of the day to day routine of going to work, bonding with friends, and raising a family. He wants out; he wants to let someone else take his place, because he knows that he is absolutely replaceable.
