Some of you asked me to come over and address in what way do I think my friend's suicide involved with the world of conspiracy and ATS.
Now I spotted many times someone misreading me or misinterpreting me, and I simply can't quote and correct each of those, as this is quite a long thread. I just advice to read my OP carefully.
As I stated my friend didn't visit Above Top Secret. I believe he thought a forum was actually not the original source of information. I don't know if he discussed online with anyone, I just know he investigated a lot of the subjects mentioned in the OP.
It's fairly safe for a person with open eyes and good mental balance to investigate conspiracy theories.
For a close-minded, impossible.
For a psychotic person or one that suffers of certain mental illnesses, complexes etc, it can trigger the illness to flourish!
As for the health eating; there's nothing bad about it, on the contrary. But if it becomes obsessive, even that can be an indication of something changing in the mind.

Exactly. Non-conspiracy related tragedy, with all respect to the Op. peace.
Don't you think it is a conspiracy-related tragedy, as my friend's obsessive belief in seemingly every possible conspiracy theory was the sole most radical symptom of his mental illness? It is a part of certain mental illnesses to start believing in all these stories / suspecting you're being lied to. You study evidence of a conspiracy, then pretty much just decide to believe!

I see, but of course the way we Live is beyond everything.

I think the same sometimes, but I think its a normal stress reaction (all the responsibilities would suddenly end) and also somekind of defence against one of human's basic conflicts which is being tied up to a mortal body, and the depression that follows (especially when being alone) when your body reminds you of that for example with pain.

Too much is too bad! exploring these kinda anonymity should be limited to certain extent not more than what our brain can handle else it will swallow us as OP said
I remember several times when we'd discussed some spiritually radical issues for a few hours, I felt exhausted after that. My contribution to the discussions were limited next to him as he would unleash all the information he'd studied during the past 2-4 weeks, and with my free time for this being limited and the fact I'm interested in 'it' but he was obsessed. He liked my perspectives and visions and some of the stuff I'd come up with.
Extending your consciousness too much at a time can be harsh on the mind. Many times I said "I think this is about it for today, it's been so deep I'm almost feeling sick."
The UFO's were in a way my favourite subject, very interesting and with all that evidence, but he would still know more about it, and told me I should not get "jammed" on this one subject as its 100% clear they are reality, and its important to move to a 'more spiritual' study.
