L’appel du vide
A French expression with an interesting meaning; The literal meaning is “The call of the void” but it’s used to describe the urge to jump from high places.
The urge to do something, even without the intention of doing so. 
Ever drive and a small part of you wants to swerve into the oncoming traffic for no particular reason? It’s that feeling. I am in no way suicidal, but I’ve gotten that feeling…and I hope I’m not the only one.
Maybe the urge develops from humans’ endless and reckless curiosity? To know, that you have the ability, and power, to do something unthinkable. Who knows - why am I posting this at 2 am?

L’appel du vide
"There is no passion in nature so demoniacally impatient, as that of him, who shuddering upon the edge of a precipice, thus meditates a plunge.  To indulge for a moment, in any attempt at thought, is to be inevitably lost; for reflection but urges us to forbear, and therefore it is, I say, that we cannot.  If there be no friendly arm to check us, or if we fail in a sudden effort to prostrate ourselves backward from the abyss, we plunge, and are destroyed.”
- Edgar Allan Poe
