Roithamer, a character based on Wittgenstein, has committed suicide having been driven to madness by his own frightening powers of pure thought.
We witness the gradual breakdown of a genius ceaselessly compelled to correct and refine his perceptions until the only logical conclusion is the negation of his own soul.
