Hey Casey,

Thanks much for providing this invaluable insight into the Infinity Problem.

Ok, so infinity is not a simple concept...

But do you think the "need to know" is sufficient motivation for someone to end his/her life?

He was tackling the infinity problem that no one so far has solved, and one of Georg Cantor, Ludwig Boltzmann, Kurt Gödel and Alan Turing worked on. All four committed suicide.. I'm not saying it's the result of that, but surely the need to 'know' may have had an impact in their suicides. Infinity is not a simple concept.
