ONE PUNCH GOD

Thought Experiment

Imagine that you have become a Deity that has the power to solve any problem by punching it (kicking it, licking it, flicking it, etc.). Now imagine that you are experiencing an increase in thoughts of suicide, to the point where it becomes a problem for you.

So let's say that you punch yourself to solve this "suicide" problem.

Now, I want you to tell me what problem you think would be solved and in what way it would be solved.

Is it the problem of having depression and suicidal thoughts that would be solved by getting rid of the emotions and thoughts themselves? What are the implications of this?

Is it the problem of existence that would be solved by way of suicide? What are the implications of this?

Is it some other problem solved in some other way? And what are the implications of it just like with any others?

Well I guess that depends on the details. Obviously the most preferable method is to remove the thoughts and feelings, but that only works if they are irrational in the first place, if they are justified you have to look deeper at why you feel that way in the first place. There are conceivable situations where suicide actually might be the best option.
