The brain answers 'Your wife will be murdered ten minutes from now.' He seizes the gun from his desk and races home knowing that there is still time to save her. When he arrives, he realizes his wife is having an affair. Since he loves her, he forgives her, but trains the gun on the man. During the struggle, the gun goes off, and kills the wife. The distraught husband thinks to himself that without her life is not worth living and commits suicide, which back in the office building, the electronic brain also correctly predicts.
