Why is Man so eager and willing to die for what is held as sacred?

    What drives a human; chemically, biologically, spiritually, etcetera; to put his or her life down on the line for what he or she values as sacred?
    Many tend to believe in the existence of free will, I personally believe in the law of causality followed by karma; and I believe that causes are all we have in effect to empower each of us throughout the course of our existence. But what is it that keeps us grounded in our affirmations to what we each hold sacred and dear? Is it love? Passion? Our the geometry of our chemistry? Fear of loss? Fear of other trifles? What is that force that feeds our will to persist?
