The call of the void - or why you may suddenly want to jump off a cliff
It’s a real thing! I get it a lot and they say it’s wires crossing in the brain but I know that I feel it more from a doubt that I would die.

[link to www.livescience.com (secure)]

“ Have you ever stood on a balcony, leaned over the edge and unexpectedly thought, "If I wanted to, I could just jump?" Or perhaps you've been at a cliff's edge, with the intention of doing nothing more than enjoying the view and fleetingly considered how easy it would be to simply step over the edge. This sudden, often unanticipated thought is usually nothing to be worried about, but it certainly warrants exploration.

This feeling — which tends to be brief, entirely out of character and often involves thoughts of leaping from a high place or driving headfirst into an oncoming vehicle — is more widespread than you might think. In fact, it's so common, the French have a term for it: l'appel du vide. In English, this translates to "the call of the void." ”

I’ve done it in my dreams before and been fine, jumped out of planes etc. have you ever felt the call of the void in real life?

Like fleetingly feeling tempted to take a toxic, mandatory, experimental injection but you realize you're not a suicidal idiot so you decide you'd rather get fired and find another job.

Re: The call of the void - or why you may suddenly want to jump off a cliff
hah this stuff is interesting
i used to have a friend who said every time he used a fork he thought about poking his eye with it.
he also said that when driving down the road he always thinks about driving off a bridge, in to traffic, against trees, over sidewalks etc.

he obviously never did it, wasnt even a malicious person

Yea it’s interesting. Mine doesn’t think I could just end it all though, mine thinks it’s all bullshit and it’s a simulation or something and something would stop me from dying just in the nick of time. 1dunno1

Omg I’ve had that feeling with a knife! Like just washing dishes and putting a knife away I’ve felt before “I could just stab someone” but I squashed the thought so hard it hasn’t happened again.

Yes I’ve had the driving thing many many times

Universally speaking we've already endured so much that... you can't take a little more?

Life hasn't given me what I wanted.. yet

I would say non-existence versus existence? nonexistence is greater... There's no struggle of existing it's natural to feel that way

I’m definitely not suicidal and pretty much hate suicidal people. If you read the link or the op it says the feeling is uncharacteristic. I’ve examined it in myself before and explained already that it’s not a feeling of wanting to end existence for me. It’s much more of a paranoid delusion that I can’t die no matter what I do. Luckily it passes and I don’t act on it.
