I don't know why anyone might think it was a cold mathematical deduction. Did you read a definition of empathy at any point? It involves identifying with and understanding the emotions of another from within their frame of reference. Your comment is a bit of a false dichotomy though. I have the skill, and then I apply it deliberately, which requires a calculation somwehere along the line. I choose not to pay attention to it at other times.
