I think I can understand why he would do that - especially if he were beginning to doubt his own mind.
However, according to Wikipedia he was using computers since the ZX81, so it does seem a bit unlikely that he would keep all of his work on a single drive with no backups.
Has anyone seriously considered that it might be turtles all the way down?
That's very old fashioned thinking.
The current model is that it's holographic nested virtualities of turtles, all the way down.
