I don't know if it has to be inherited if it's passed down more directly through example. How can a child not incorporate their parents' world view to some extent?

And feeling a great deal of empathy for those who preceded us is probably hardwired to some extent. I'm sure like the universal appeal of baby faces it has some sort of biological benefit. I remember coming to terms with death by empathizing with the view my ancestors must have had of it.

On a related note, and from a position of total ignorance, might I ask if you are an existentialist? My therapist said the other day that I was one, and attempted to explain what it meant.

I was a bit confused and wondered if it was similar to his notion that I approached the ideal of Buddhist nonattachment, which was a compplete misinterpretation of what I was describing and experiencing at the time. Although I am sure his intentions were good.
