No, it says nothing about the consciousness of people who intentionally
commit suicide. I don't see the connection. People commit suicide because
the experience of living their lives is qualitatively intolerable, not
because they have a programming error and can't tell the the difference
between killing themselves and not killing themselves. An automatic pilot
is incapable of committing suicide.
