Yes,but how to reach the point of no return? How to lay bare the true nature of the world?How to quieten this restless striving?
Schopenhauer found suicide to be ultimately useless in the grand scheme of things. Sure the little part of the Will that constituted one would be gone, but the rest of the eternal grind of suffering would continue regardless while flies use the corpse as food.  Asceticism is better because  one is actually continually denying the Will.
