Moreover, some people appear to hang tough with life, and do not commit 
suicide, despite the intolerable conditions of their life. Which is something 
of a puzzle, I suppose. Some people do and some people don't. So maybe its a 
biological condition that makes us hang in there?

So that proves that people who commit suicide aren't conscious...?



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.
