Do you really love philosophy?

Bist Du sicher?
Are you sure?

“As young as your memories go” - that means: when you were about 2 to 3 years old. So you do still not know for sure whether it is a “birth defect” or not. And to “hunger for” philosophy “sometimes”, as you said, does not necessarily mean that it is a “defect”. But if you “can’t stop it”, as you also said, then it could probably be a “defect”. Hmm … :-k
