Mitchell Heisman's Suicide Note
« on: September 26, 2010, 06:11:59 pm »

1900 pages. I have just started reading, this is profound reading!. A shame he felt it was needed to off himself to spread his ideas, but who can argue against death as a promotional tool.

Mitchell Heisman (1975 – September 18, 2010) was a 35 year old Jewish-American[1] from Somerville, Massachusetts who published a 1,905 page-book entitled Suicide Note and then committed suicide on the steps of Memorial Church of Harvard University in September 2010.[2]
[edit] Biography

Heisman grew up in New Jersey and had a University at Albany bachelor's degree in psychology.[2] Before committing suicide at around 11 a.m. on September 18, 2010, during services for Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of atonement,[3] he published a 1,905 page book entitled Suicide Note on the website and emailed a link to the note to 400 of his contacts (a mixture of friends, family, press and academia) about five hours after his death.[4] Suicide Note, in addition to being a suicide note, discusses sociobiology, transhumanism, history, religion, death, nihilism and other philosophical issues at some length,[3][5] as well as commenting on current events.[6] The tone of the book is alternately academic and sardonic.[6]
