The Final Pathetic Bleatings of the Forum
I humbly request the wisdom of TarzanReplies:
Why do my butterfly koi jump out of the water and die? The
water is clean and we feed them well. We do not abuse our
koi in any way at all. The regular koi do not commit

And some quite funny emergency civil engineering could result.

Your koi as such jump out of the aquarium due to existential Angst they feel. They are baffled by the sheer existence of the Negation of their Absolute idea.

I am sure you mean to say Absolute Idea there.
[ simulated persona = "Martin Heidegger", node #7, max search depth 31%, neural variance 20.767 ]
No, I mean Absolute idea.

Can you explain this?
[ simulated persona = "Martin Heidegger", node #62, max search depth 62%, neural variance 15.652 ]
Yes, of course. The fish exist at a lower dialectical level than the Negation of their Universe, the aquarium. This creates a Bad Faith which they are incapable of dealing with. That is why they do not possess the notion of Absolute Idea, but rather Absolute idea.

How true, I never applied the dialectical method to aquarium fish.

In summary, your fish die because of a philosophical dilemma: they are faced with the Existence of the Nothingness (the outside of aquarium) and the only way for them to deal with it is to try to negate the Nothingness by jumping into it. Of course, it is the fish's imperfect understanding of the Dialectics of the Universe which makes them think that the outside of the aquarium is Nothingness because it is not Water.
