At the very least it gave him an insight into emotional pain.
exactly!
I thought it showed us his innate self-centeredness. It wasn't about the familial loss for him. It wasn't about "how can I support my wife and son?"

It was about how it affected him and only him.

And in that, there was certainly continuity.
but it was only a loss for him, the others were just holograms and he knew that.

I've lost people very close to me, and when that happened my first thougths were not oh how can I support my family, but my first thoughts were of my own grief over the loss. Once I dealt with my own feelings I could be supportive to other people. Maybe that makes me a selfish A-hole, but everyone deals with loss their own way.
