To be responsible, though direct means, for one's own state of destruction, or of ceasing to exist. A term typically applied to inanimate objects; living beings are said to kill themselves or commit suicide if they're sentient.

Objects intended to self-destruct are often equipped with a self-destruct mechanism by which it is clearly established that the object is intended to be capable of self-destructing. Nodes do not have such a clear mechanism.
