Re: Mind Meld Motive (SPOILER)

Since transference is part of the mind meld, it was probably both comforting Pike and experiencing what he was going through. While the former is a more noble reason for doing it than the latter, Spock's curiosity with death may have been more of a motivator than he'd care to admit.

It also contrasts with him being unable to comfort Kirk in his dying moments. Spock can only sit there and listen to Kirk tell him he's scared as he suffers.
