I noticed a few and it makes me wonder if somehow you continue on in a slightly altered version of your current life, even if the suicide is successful, just that for you it's just another failed attempt.

In the apocrypha (the part of Genesis in the Bible that was never cannonized) it mentions Adam and Eve committed suicide about six different times, and "the Lord" kept restoring them back to life, to live again just where they left off. Not that I put much stock in the story but it does raise an eyebrow.

Same idea has been reworked in sci-fi book series "Riverworld" by Philip Jose Farmer.
You kill yourself and get respawned in the same sandbox world, some distance away.

Creepy, but sci-fi is fiction, just as Bible and the rest.

One thing that would not make sense though is when you die of aging, you have to die sometime. If you die of age where would you be restored too. Also the idea of suicide being an unnatural form of death is ridiculous for many reasons. Death is death unless you believe god is judging the circumstances of your death, but nature does not differentiate. So is putting a gun to your head any different than smoking a pack of cigarettes a day until you give yourself cancer? How about driving your car to fast, wrecking and dying? Would that be considered an accident or your time to go? If you do have a destined fate then you have no free will and suicide would be your fate if you so choose that. I don't know I'm just fucking rambling.

What is your take on it?
Something I don't understand about the quantum suicide theory is as I understand it all the possible realities are occurring and when you CTB you jump into one where you survived...but what happens to the "you" that was in that one? Since its "all possible realities" shouldn't the "you" in that one be a little different? I don't understand how it collates into one consciousness.

There is a lot I find wrong with the theory, as I understand it is more of a thought experiment like Schrodinger's cat. I dont really believe it but I think its scary. The having to die of old age someday no matter what pretty much destroys the idea in my opinion.

Im sure I am missing some fundamental part of it that would explain my question. Ignorance is often the cause of confusion.

I am open to all possibilities and while this one seems less likely than some, it is for sure terrifying if it means neverending life. I am all for immortality IF I can choose to life it without pain and pause it/end it when I feel done.
