I think I see why Gaulois shot himself. This symmetry thing was driving him nuts.

Except he didn't shoot himself. Got into a duel and the other bloke did the job for him. Like that he was so devoted to math that he made sure future generations would benefit from his knowledge before he engaged in the incident that took his life. THAT'S devotion.
