Ouch, that's one hell of a choice to make - and if this train of logic is true, I wouldn't envy him one bit. To make a choice between the 'love interest' (Kurisu) and your childhood friend (Mayuri)...I wouldn't be able to do that, that's for sure.
You know, has anyone ever actually considered that maybe switching over to the Beta timeline not be the best idea in the world? I mean sure, the Alpha timeline is pretty messed up from what we've seen, but what if the Beta timeline has similar problems? They might just be trading in one form of evil for another.
