Suicide or not-suicide? (video)

Billie Pirate Eilish, "Bury a Friend"; Ashley Wells, Dhr. Seven, Crystal Q., Wisdom Quarterly

How could it get any worse than now?
Suicide is killing. Killing is bad karma. For one who suffers (enough to want suicide), there will be more suffering as a result of bad karma (unskillful deeds motivated by aversion). One is likely, due to past karma, to be immediately reborn in the downfall (apaya) -- as a hungry ghost, animal, asura (anti-gods, titans), or hellion.

In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts (Gabor Mate)
What steps of training lead out of endless rebirth, conditioned existing, and constantly re-arising now here, now there? If one were really sick and tired of it all, one would strive for enlightenment and liberation, awakening and freedom. Nirvana (the end of suffering) is the solution, not rebirth, not death, not suicide.

What will the Realm of Hungry Ghosts be like for suicidal sorts? If legends are to be believed, the shape shifting beings in this invisible world (outside the range of our vision) are like Tim Burton films -- for example, The Nightmare Before Christmas -- or this possessed Billie Eilish music video "Bury a Friend."
