Overview

The last moments, thoughts and philosophies about life and death of a Psychology student who walks to a place where he will commit suicide.

Suicide is the most philosophical act of man.
It is the ultimate questioning of existence. At the heart of every suicidal is the most authentic philosopher, who by virtue of reasoning, of thought or even of circumstances, destroys a major force in the universe: the force of nature, the force of life.
Suicide is a freak of nature, is a paradox. The living being exists on another level and not only in a material level like a stone, and having the ability to choose the non-existence in that plan, is simply absurd! Imagine if a stone could choose not to exist!
The choice: “To be or not to be”, is the most spectacular of all the choices a human being can make. It shows how life is on a higher level in relation to any other kind of existence. Analyzing this ability to reject life can tell us a lot about the human soul.
The man is divided into body and soul, his body is material and consists of the same atoms and molecules that are found in many other parts of the universe, but his soul, this body of life, has nothing similar in all universe.
The soul is a product of the brain and it has a parallel existence to the universe, unfolding in the most amazing questions about its origin, its nature and the universe itself.
It is simply incredible that an electrical product or without shape as the soul, could eliminate an entity so material and so much greater than it as it is the human body.
That is why (in a materialist line of thought) suicide should be considered homicide because in the process the soul interrupts the life of the body that would still be able to live, develop and reproduce.

Meet the Author

Stélio Inácio, writer of 25 years old, was born on the 26th January, 1986 in Maputo, Mozambique (a Portuguese speaking country). Early on he became interested in Literature, Philosophy, Music and Arts in general and made massive studies in these areas. At 15 he began to write seriously while continuing his investigations and his secondary studies. At that time he has membership cards from various libraries in Maputo, where he maintains contact with world’s literature. He also maintains contact with art and with the scientific progress of the digital age. He develops a fondness for Portuguese vernacular prose by Alexandre Herculano, and classic literature, reading writers like Camões, Dante, Boccaccio and Shakespeare. Over the years 2002, 2003 and 2004 he writes the vast majority of the 200 sonnets that were later in December 2006, compiled in his book of 60 sonnets entitled "O Meu País É esférico, Azul e Pasmoso" (My Country is Spherical, Blue and astounding). At that time he wins two literary prizes: “Maria Odette de Jesus”, by A Politécnica and "Mozambique-Germany Cultural Crossroads".
