If he had a spinal-nervous breakdown, it would be no surprise. This ties in with the given meaning about people who take on too much, and control freaks; martyrs would fit in here too: all of them are people who try to be THE nucleus of their situation, whether actively or passive-aggressively, around whom all else revolve, not being as useful and important as them! The situation tends to be self-correcting in a self-defeating way. A fused, compacted spine becomes rigid, and no more burdens can be carried.
LOL that's genius!

I must admit, even looking at this card gives me back ache. The flare of intense light from the neutron star reflects the sudden flaring of pain in the back.

I can't really add that much to these two great posts, except to say that the next stage on from the intensely compacted matter of a neutron star is a black hole (the Devil card in the Quantum). A black hole is created (so the theory goes) when the gravitational forces of a collapsing star are so great, causing the matter to be crushed and compacted so severely, that it creates a massive distortion - perhaps even a rip - in space-time.

This would be the end of the road for the 10 of Wands person I guess - the moment of breakdown, or utter subjugation in the case of the martyr.
