The Assassination of Jo Cox

“In politics, if something doesn’t go the way you want, shoot someone. It works every time. Just like it did with the London Riots…Just like it’s working now. As long as there’s a patsy, no one cares who’s actually behind it all.”

Dating a Higher Functioning Sociopath – Rule 66

There is a point in life, in which we rid ourselves of our child-selves, as it may and step into a world of responsibility. Our own life becomes nothing but responsibility. Yet, with responsibility comes power and that is the objective of too many human beings. Truth be told, I personally reached such a stage. After years of being in a relationship, in which I am the provider, the comments of others begin to lose their meaning. Gender roles should not be the issue here. Within a compromised world, the entire family unit will be required to slave for the clothes on their back. However, there is only so many times you can watch yourself bleed or ignore the bruises that the world has left you with. Mutual responsibility states that both individuals share the entire blame, as both entered the circumstance, knowing  the probable consequences. Only those affected by emotion and unable to accept their part of the responsibility will deny their role.  The truth about modern society can often be so harsh that the masses will shield themselves from it. Blame is shifted here more than anywhere else. Social taboos only persist, since society as a whole cannot acknowledge its responsibility for producing them. Every action contains a wide range of possible reactions, some more probable than others. The interconnected nature of the universe, amongst other things, suggests that the visible separation of objects and individuals is illusory, consequently the attachment that we hold towards our external reality is highly misleading. In the end, none of us are truly alone, yet none of us are truly enlightened either.

Nonetheless, trust is defined by the reliance of integrity, capability or characteristics of an individual or object and within modern society it is formed slowly, if at all. We would all give our lives for something or someone without a moment’s hesitation. Yet, when we are forced to live out the consequences of such a choice, the final outcome differs from the original blueprint of the plan. However, when we actively seek to discover such determination and force of will within ourselves, it alters our character. By tuning into our inner strength, we become limitless. Capable of overcoming anything and everything that may step into our path. No matter how painful. No matter how soul-crushing the experience may be. Yet, there will always be those that seek to break the will of another, at times even crush it beyond the point of return. I’ve encountered a few in my time. It is a harsh experience for another to mould you like clay. Underneath none of us are set in stone. We are like water, we choose the path of least resistance. Although there are others, such as myself, that withstand up to the point of breaking with an inbuilt safety switch, which spells genocide. Western Civilisation is a cosy location for most individuals, except for molested children, child trafficking victims, rape victims, fighting troops, the homeless and those starving on the streets. If you have ever been any of the above, you’ll know what I mean. There are certain circumstances that you simply cannot be yourself again afterwards. This is commonly referred to as a shift in consciousness. Thanatologists refer to it as a form of emotional death, which can trigger an overload, when the trauma is compounded too severely in a short period of time. Individuals that have suffered such an experience before are twice as likely to suffer it again and emerge stronger, if they can fight their way through. A piece of personal advice, do not rely on your social circles, unless they are rock-solid with a steady track record of providing support. You’d merely end up causing yourself more deep-rooted damage than it’s worth. Secondly, learn to detach and walk away, if necessary, to prevent further exposure or risk to yourself. There are few things that you cannot simply walk away from, others simply require further determination, but the most important thing is that you do what you consider to be the right thing. Recently, I skimmed through some of my old study materials, mainly basic anatomy and physiology before progressing to trauma medicine. And to cut a long story short, that which I was reading reminded me of the very first time that I was raped. If you’ve never slept with anyone beforehand, it certainly leaves an impression. Most men and women spend years attempting to move on from it. It becomes a tainted first experience that if you want it or not affects the mind. Yet, I was young at the time and had not completed half the training in psychology that I have now. I picked myself up and carried going, until the second time. The most dangerous part here is that the individual can disconnect too rapidly and too severely, which results in rationalizing the experience in a manner that harms the emotional potential of the individual, yet not the overall mental growth. Similar to suppressing one and forcing the other to grow into excess, resulting in an imbalance. Most rape victims know that the world does not stop simply since they’ve got a bad day. The rent and bills need to be paid. The attendance record at work needs to be spotless. And some still need to perform sexually as if nothing happened with their partners. So, after the second time, I learnt to move on without flinching. To take a hit and keep on going, as if nothing happened. Within the modern world, where everything travels at such a fast pace, there are very few moments to catch a breath and clear ones head. And even less individuals take the time to recuperate in private. I’ve learnt by experience that the methods of social engineering have spread to the furthest corners of the globe and in the end there is no other escape from them than to grow immune and detached from them. To basically become of little use to anyone involved within modern society, as they are mainly dependent upon them. A word of caution, detachment brings countless gifts to the practitioners doorstep, yet one has to be careful not to detach to severely in a short period of time as that can be accompanied with repercussions and emotional outbursts. In retrospect, one should not push oneself over the edge or allow others to do the same. That which you identify with defines you on a deep level. Now, imagine you were to take each and every aspect away from yourself. Bit by bit. Whatever is left, which is nothing, ultimately defines you. There are no material riches. Your weight will not be measured in gold. In fact, you will feel as if you are being stripped of everything that you are.
Tiny-Buddha
Ultimately, that is not true. To attain true non-attachment means to distance yourself on every level down to your very core from everything that you perceive affects you, makes you or compromises your perspective. Every single material possession, including your house, your car, the very clothes on your back and food in your fridge. Every single emotional or psychological attachment or social contact that you have ever formed, without allowing it to affect your emotional or mental state as well as communication skills. Although your presence of mind will feel as if it is being torn apart under attack, you grow stronger from it, as it represents as a pure state of self-sufficiency, in which you are entirely independent and disconnected without one singular aspect of the phenomenal world interfering with your state of mind. Disconnecting, in essence, refers to an undisturbed awareness of reality without any forms of emotional bias, judgement, desire, power or attachment towards the situation at hand.

There are at all times individuals that hold opposite goals and values. We all follow a variant methodology of operation when it comes down to living our life. Yet, there will always be those that seek to live off of the generosity and good will of others. Often, there is an unspoken agreement of exchange within society. One hand washes the other, as favours are traded. Exceptions, however, mark the rule. What about the step-father that sneaks into their adopted sons or daughters bedroom, when she is far too young to legally consent to sexual activities or even mentally make sense of them? I strongly recommend the practice of non-violence and there are very few occasions I would justify the use of self-defence, if it results in degenerative injuries that affect motor function, but that is one of them. Every individual is responsible for who they associate themselves with, even when they are born into the circumstances. Perhaps, in Buddhism or Hinduism, it would be especially when they are born into these horrific circumstances. Do not let all that suffering be in vain, but let it drive you one s

Dating a Higher Functioning Sociopath – Part 2

It should be noted that the mere clinical diagnosis of childhood sociopathy does not equal inevitable doom or the birth of a natural killer. The psychopath for instance is more prone to certain characteristics that are perpetuated by emotion. Certain traits overlap, which will be explain further. Experimentation is a trait experienced more by psychopaths. Sociopaths will experiment socially with the emotions and reactions of others. Due to the lack of emotion that is felt and expressed, the childhood sociopath has to adapt to an environment, which is based upon emotional concepts that they struggle to grasp per their nature. The childhood sociopath requires to learn their own social boundaries. Truth be told, they necessitate early education in ethics around the age of 3 to avoid certain mishaps during the process. Yes, “normal” parents can give birth to a sociopathic infant. Genetics operate through the family-line. It can skip generations. Countless ancestors throughout mankind has fought wars and committed genocide for the sake of a peace that still has not been established.

Traits of the Higher Functioning Sociopath:

1. Charisma & Charm:

The sociopath is a wordsmith…A master of words. They know how to act accordingly to a situation without the bias of emotion. Yet, sociopaths like all others have their own dress-code. It is still a point of genetic and environmental influence that allows for certain traits to flourish. They can adapt to all levels of their society and alter their clothes accordingly. This can also be viewed in their mannerisms and linguistic use, as it will change, according to the individual. They adopt the heir of their surroundings. If they with the rich and powerful, everything about them would lead you to believe that that is their natural place within society. The act would be flawless. Yet, later on the same day, they could be in a drug den and one would naturally assume that they have always been there. Socially inclined sociopaths often become the pillar or bastion of their social environment. At the same time, as becoming the very same pillar for the opposite side of that environment (ie. Both hunter and prey). For only then are you in a true position to control and do as you will.

2. Lack of Connection To The Past

Sociopaths within their social circles, as they can hold both sides of a social spectrum, they have to not care about “the past.”. They will participate in activities with one individual and the same evening, they will engage in an opposing set of activities with another. Often, they will tell others that which they wish to hear. More often than not, this merely saves them the agony of coldly spitting out the truth and becoming a symbol of heresy for doing so.  There is no connection to the time-frame of the past. They could have been wronged at the age of 3 or 33. An experience, perceived negatively by the sociopath, could have occurred at the 3 and at the age of 33, as the best men at the transgressors wedding, the sociopath could snap his neck in front of the aisle for a wrongdoing that occurred 30 years ago. The sociopath does not recognize the difference between the time of incident or level of effect. That can only be learnt through explanation or experience.

3. Ego

Not all narcissists are sociopaths. Not all sociopaths are narcissists. Like with all other human beings, the ego can be controlled and removed. Is it truly ego when you truly can and are willing to do what you are saying? With the childhood sociopath, they grow up knowing it. It is an inbuilt knowledge. The power of will and single-mindedness. Is it truly paranoia, if you’re just? People often forget that the sociopath is right, they get caught up in the biology and emotional effect of the event. The sociopath does not wish to move on until they have coerced the other individual to discuss that which they consider an overly emotional state or reaction. Due to the lack of emotion, it is not necessarily arrogance, it is the lack of care to lie. The truth is often much more effective to place others in a state of discomfort. No one argues the truth. Thus the fallback is emotion, excuses and justification, which the sociopath often shatters in order to unveil the actual truth. Furthermore, ego requires emotion. Ego requires a need or even urge. If it is not ego, then it is merely the knowledge of self. The knowledge of what you are capable of.

4. Deceptive Capabilities

The sociopatb can manipulate and deceive their environment, when the need requires it. Like certain other traits with the sociopath, they can be switched on and off like a light switch. The amount of social control it requires to maintain that many lies, yet only the necessity arises. However, the manipulation is second nature to them. It is who they are. Society often does not allow them to disobey societal conventions. They are disgusted by the hypocrisy, which they face on a daily basis from the individuals around them, due to this so called the constant deceptions that occurs around them whether they participate in it or not. They seek individual that are more themselves, rather than those discussing what Simon Cowell had for dinner last night, which in itself is a manipulation of society that is deceiving the public from the truth in their world and pathological lies that Simon Cowell represents is publicly permitted, if not heralded, is simply hypocrisy, as we all follow.

 5. Sexual Magnetism

As previously mentioned, they are masters at camouflaging themselves physically, mentally and emotionally. Their knowledge of how individuals act and react according to their current social surroundings enables them to appear to proverbial sex-god to their chosen target. Attraction and arousal originate within the mind, due to the sociopaths knowledge of society, anyone is attainable, you just have to know what to do and who to do it to. With those two concept, anything can be achieved. It is however scientifically proven that sociopaths possess a higher testosterone level.

6. Flair for Drama

Once the applied social engineering has been perfected, the sociopath holds all the strings. The sociopath are one of the most uncontrolled type. Whereas most individual possess emotionally based requirements, the sociopath does not, therefore causing them to become the loose cannon, if you wish to control them. In the society of control, the sociopath is naturally on top, as they cannot be controlled. For them, it is either let them live or kill them. By allowing them to live, you permit them to finish that which they wish to complete in life. By killing them, you merely cease their ability to do so. These are the only two ways to stop a sociopath.

7. Predatory Stare

In a world controlled by emotion, everyone is game for the sociopath. Everyone that in controlled by emotion, that is. They have no shame or conscience and cannot take other seriously when they are influenced by emotions. To the sociopath, “normal” individuals are the ones that behave stupidly or ignorantly, once they have entirely lost their presence of mind in a wild tangent of emotion. There is nothing pro-survival about such a state of mind to them. It is a waste of time and energy. It is best to conserve ones energy for more productive matters. If the emotional aspect would be deleted from the ordinary citizen, the occurrence of a traumatic event becomes simple. That which has been clouded by emotions becomes clear. Yet, bear in mind, due to the lack of emotion experienced, they are prone to explosions of anger, if actions do not run according to plan. Although it is the little things, the large things are faced with a calm, emotionless stare. (The predator inclines hunting sheep. The sociopath does not view himself as the fox, hunting the sheep. He views himself as the farmer, culling the herd.)

8. Lack of Conscience

The sociopaths lack of emotional connection inevitable affects his sense of empathy, yet not the sense of understanding. He understands the consequence of stabbing a pencil through the neck, yet to the average human being it is considered an overreaction. The sociopaths fails to recognize it as such by nature. They do not have a punch up. They maim or kill. There is no enjoyment is fighting for them. They do not have the conscience to facilitate the differentiation between right and wrong. They possess no social conscience, no feelings within them that will alert them of the possible unethical nature of their actions. Therefore, childhood sociopaths that have been educated in ethics and socially acceptable behavior know the exact difference between their actions, yet they are still fighting an internal impulse.

{As sociopaths are free from psychosis, sadism, pedophilia, they control on society would be, if not extreme, but humane.}

Dating a Higher Functioning Sociopath – Part 1

Living with a sociopath is not easy…It is living the way of will with them.

There are countless types of men. It was Carl Jung that proposed to uniqueness of every psyche and therefore every living being. Yet, there are genetic predispositions, which affect the manner in which the consciousness functions within the pre-selected body. Sociopathy is neurologically defined as exhibiting characteristics that imply a reduced input and output of emotion. Consequently, they perceive the phenomenal world in an entirely different manner. It should also be noted that the military refuses to allow sociopaths to participate in the lower ranks of the army. As the end justifies the means for them. As a professional counselor, I more often than not encounter articles that are scientifically flawed, as they intertwine psychopathy and sociopathy, which are two entirely different congenital “disorders”. After years of working with individuals that have become numbed by emotion with very little social will or ability to distance themselves from the drama that is being continually perpetuated by them. I at one point also went down that very same path, yet managed to avert my own self-destructive tendencies in order to provide support for others. I have discovered that the human inclination to become caught up in emotion is also that which repels us in regards to sociopaths. Not all their viewpoints are extreme. We often picture them as evil incarnate. The man or woman that is incapable of love and cannot be loyal to anyone. This statement is utterly inaccurate. The emotional connection is reduced. This does not imply that it is non-existent. Truth be told, sociopaths are often tormented by external circumstances due to their lack of emotional or subjective response. Objectivity and truth are, in essence, tools that are needlessly brutal, if applied without caution. The sociopath often does not have the careful handling, unless they have trained themselves to adapt to their surroundings in such a manner. I would advise you, if you wish to engage in a relationship with a sociopath, to leave your emotions at the door. By the definition of Scott Peck MD. “Love is not an emotion. It is commitment.” Naturally, one cannot be committed without being involved. However, for a sociopath to be in a relationship, they have to accept the emotion of their counterpart. Being in a long-term relationship with a sociopath truly allows one to learn the depths of non-attachment and the ability to move forward from a state of emotional anchors. If an individual utilizes critical and logical thought within circumstances of extreme emotion and stress, the situation loses its grasp on the individual. Within any relationship, there are gains and losses. Yet, it is not a battlefield and it should not be treated as such. It is more reminiscent of a sanctuary base, allowing for time to replenish. Numerous couples have constructed a bubble around themselves within their relationship to which they can retreat to, before being fully able to confront the outside world. We all practice a form of escapism. A negative coping mechanism that has outlived its usefulness. However, for a sociopath, their personality development goes back much further. During the period of early childhood, the sociopath is faced with an inevitable decision that cannot be delayed. The sociopath has a will of iron. Yet, even iron breaks under pressure. The choice is whether to kill or not to kill. It requires an enormous amount of will to not follow your natural impulses. Due to the lack of emotional connection, the outbursts that can occur are beyond an explosion of force. For them, there is no difference between a slap, dislocating the kneecap or driving a pencil through the neck. There is no punishing a sociopath, they will merely stare blankly. However, their understanding of their actions is profound due to the objective nature. They understand that they have violated human rights, yet they do not understand why they are being punished. Most importantly, sociopaths are only prone to provoked violence. If they are pushed too far, they will kill. It is as simple as that.

The difference between the psychopath and the sociopath is that they draw no pleasure from their deeds. They are indifferent. To them, it is a action-reaction reflex. As much as a sociopath is unemotional, it is all dependent upon their state of mind. As they show very little or no emotional basis for this, one simply has to observe their response. It is the choice between sitting on the ground, watching a stranger burning to death, and putting out the flame. Often it is a point of convenience. Other times, it is a point of kindness. In regards to my personal experiences with a sociopath, I do not for a moment regret my decision of engaging in a relationship with him. Though the lack of emotion can become tiresome, one evolves to maintaining ones presence of mind in any circumstance. Knowing that every individual is different, you have to take them at their stride or become monk and cut oneself off of society. To be a sociopath in todays society has truly become being at odds with everything. They do not care which celebrity rises or falls. They do not care about Simon Cowells’ bowel movements. They do not care whether their neighbor has a new lawnmower. It should be noted that they are single-minded and tenacious in their approach. They are also more likely to try things out despite of the advice of others, mainly as others view it from a subjective standpoint. One requires to develop a clear mind and social will, when dealing with a sociopath. Everyone should have a sociopath in their life, merely for an occasion calm, unemotional perspective. As the sociopath has chosen the path of society, thus he must act as others do, hiding within plain sight.

Detachment Versus Sociopathy

Introduction

Within philosophy, the term detachment represents a state in which an individual overcomes their attachment toward desire for all objects, individuals or concepts of the phenomenal world, henceforth attaining a heightened perspective. Within Bahá’í Faith, Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism and Taoism, non-attachment, which stands for the release from desire as well as suffering, is a significant principle and ideal. Detachment is also a central concept in Zen Buddhism. One of the most important technical Chinese terms for detachment is “wú niàn” (無念), which literally means “no thought.” This does not signify the literal absence of thought, but rather the state of being “unstained” (bù rán 不染) by thought. Therefore, non-attachments represents being detached from one’s thoughts. It is the separation of the individual from their own thoughts and opinions in detail as to not be harmed mentally and emotionally by them. The mentality is generally also applied towards others. In addition, within Hinduism the view of detachment comes from the understanding of the nature of existence and the true ultimate state sought by the practitioner. In other terms, while one is responsible and mindful without concerns of the past as well as future. The detachment is focused towards the result of one’s actions rather than towards all aspects of life. This concept is cited extensively within Puranic and Vedic literature.

Zen and Sociopathy

There are a variety of parallels between sociopathy and Zen Buddhism, such as emotional detachment, non-attachment to the self and mindfulness. In addition, Buddhists, similar to sociopaths, can appear as unemotional or emotionally cold. Conversely, Buddhism appreciates emotions as well as deeds that are spontaneous and based upon intuition, merely not those arising from logic or the rational mind, as it may. Yet, a sociopath is genetically  provided with the free will of choice, as it may, to develop the will to form attachments or to detach from their surroundings. The archetype of the monk and the sociopath, in fact, are reflections of one another. Whereas the Monk strives to detach himself, the sociopath often attempts to involve himself. Although there is a fine line between morally righteous actions, conducted for the progression of mankind, and morally corrupt actions that serve merely the perpetrator. According to Carl Jung, this line also exists on the fourth stage of individuation. Nonetheless, would it even be probable to suggest that the sociopathic mind is closer to enlightenment? Or perhaps on the other side of it? The monk and the sociopath view the nature of reality from almost exactly opposite perspectives, operating at entirely different parallels. For instance, a sociopath can be threatened and perplexed by emotion due to the unpredictability that it brings. Emotion has the capacity to throw actions out of balance, as it may, disrupting the behaviour of the individual. The monk, however, aims to distance themselves from emotion whilst remaining compassionate towards the emotions of others. To a sociopath that is easily agitated, an emotional outburst could trigger the desire to interfere with the behaviour of the individual, resulting a variety of probable outcomes, ranging from loss of consciousness due to blunt force head trauma to death caused by the rapid snapping of the neck. The monk, on the other hand, would view it as being provided with an opportunity of growth through the challenge of calming the unsettled individual with emotional support and meditative practises.

Mindfulness

To centre oneself entirely in the present moment requires the gradual release of the attachment to all forms of thought, most significantly the self. It also necessitates the letting go of ones attachment to emotions, which are also a kind of thought. In essence, the individual ceases to think and feel. “As long as one is caught up thinking or feeling, one is occupied reflecting or anticipating.” Within Buddhism, to live in such states of illusion perpetuated by thought is represented by The First Truth, which states that life is suffering. To therefore release the attachments to their own thoughts allows the individual to raise their level of awareness, which with freedom from illusion and suffering is attained. This increase in awareness is accompanied by compassion, arising from the direct experience of the individuals connection to all within existence through the regular practice of meditation. According to Buddhism, all beings possess the Buddha nature within themselves, even if it does not surface throughout an entire lifetime. This illustrates that at the core…we are all the same. Perceiving the subject in this manner, the difference between the sociopath and the monk is an illusion in itself.

The Mask of the Self

What are we without words? What are we without form? If one were to simply look at any individual as a whole, disregarding any thoughts of attraction or judgement. Merely perceiving them as they are. Usually until that individual speaks, they possess no language or nationality, yet we have already categorised them according to social class, status and appearance. These are also labelled as attachments…Attachments to that which is perceived as inappropriate and to that which is considered to be socially acceptable. Once one can get passed all superficial matters and observe another being,  perceiving them as possessing a unique personality and mind of their own…A intricate purpose and path of their own, which is connected to you through the very nature of reality itself. By mere existence upon the same planet, the same country or the same city, one human being affects another, often without conscious realisation. Succeeding all the challenges and struggles of life, we will all inevitable have to discover a manner, in which to live with ourselves and our surroundings. Humanity no longer values nature in the ways they used to. In fact, within the United States it has become against federal law to grow any kind of food in the garden of the average American citizen. Needless to mention, numerous elderly ladies were arrested and received ample amounts of fines and prison time to ponder upon their wrongdoings. Yet, have any human rights actually been violated? It would perhaps dent the wallets of the local supermarket. The true goal has a much more profound affect, the illegality of self-sufficiency. Within modern society, the archetype of the true monk has nearly faced extinction. Except for a few remote corners of the world, there are not as many die-hard monks as there used to be. Monks that would rise at 4am each morning to perform aerobic exercises and then spend countless hours in meditation every day. The ideal monk is in a meditative state throughout waking and sleeping consciousness, continuously focused upon the present. Such an individual cannot exist within modern Western society. They would represent all that which the capitalist and the socialist wish to abolish by pure nature of being. It is the monks way to simply be.
Not try, not do… To just be.
Everyone has at one point made a mistake that was irreparable. Some more than others. Learning by failure is a process that we all experience within life. Yet, once one puts aside superficial differences or quarrels with ourselves and others, one arrives at the inference that the suffering of life, its encompassing attachments and illusions, is a universal condition.

Conclusion

Within most organised religions, the vow of poverty stands for the physical side of detachment, whereas Eastern religions focus their energies upon purifying as well as cleansing the body, mind and spirit. They are intrinsically aware that each individual possesses their own path towards enlightenment that will differ from the path of another. Nonetheless, there are common denominators, which create the suffering that is experienced within life. The goal in itself becomes to transcend the pain experienced and distance oneself from it. Within a wide range of belief structures, the practitioner begins to accept full responsibility for their thoughts, their emotions and their actions. Partial responsibility is also accepted for each trauma experienced. The notion becomes to separate oneself from situations, which cause internal grief or unfavourable circumstances. To not involve oneself in the drama of life, therefore allows one to become detached from it. One does no longer requires or even desires the drama that life brings, thus one simply removes the causal factors that trigger them by editing oneself out of the situation. Numerous yogis and sages have retreated to the mountains for decades before re-surfacing to the public within a state of Samadhi, otherwise known as the ultimate state of peace and enlightenment.
Sociopathy, now known as anti-social disorder, is generally a genetic condition that cannot be cured or mended. Only the individual can gain control of their inclinations in order to expand their understanding of others. Needless to mention, countless high functioning sociopaths have marked history beyond the point of return, especially within religious or spiritual professions. Whereas psychopathy prefers the long drawn out emotional pain in others, the sociopath has no preference. More often than not, the response of a sociopath is provoked into violence whilst the psychopath does not necessarily require a trigger event to victimise another. Most interestingly of all, the behavioural tendencies of a psychopath would not allow them to linger on a mountain for decades without human contact, whereas the sociopath would experience no care or consideration towards the task. Psychopaths and sociopaths, although it is a common misconception that they are increasingly alike, nothing could be further from the truth. The psychopath experiences an urge, a compulsion or a drive of some sort, generally speaking, whereas the sociopath does not. The most suitable analogy would perhaps be an emotional filter that is different from the average human being. The emotions are present within the sociopath, yet they are disconnected and in the background. Hence, a sociopath with anger management issues can become a rather clinically challenging subject. As sociopathy is a genetic condition, it affects the very core make-up of the individual. If pushed beyond a certain point, the sociopath cannot differentiate between a slight emotional outburst and the action of snapping a neck. It is a whiplash between extreme emotions that differs from bipolar disorder, as the sociopath experiences conscious choice of expression of emotions to a certain degree. In conclusion, the choice of detach oneself for sociopathy, similarly the development of the love-map for a rapist, occurs during childhood. It becomes a foundation stone in the mental development of the sociopath. Truth be told, there is very little distinction between the warrior monk and the sociopath in moments of extreme discontent. Both ways of living are mirror images of another. They are equal sides of the same spectrum, attempting to alter the circumstances, merely approaching the matter from opposing viewpoints. Ironically, they are increasingly alike. Both are triggered by the need of the soap opera within real life by other human beings. The unintentional or intentional creation of problems within daily life. Both also hold another aspect in common, a neutrality towards animals. The sociopath as well as the monk would prefer to focus on the owner of the animal that was trained to attack over the animal itself, whereas most other types of individuals focus less on the actions of the participants and more towards the action of the animal. However, for instance, whereas monks would prefer to prevent animal testing, urging for the animals to be released back into nature, sociopaths rather prevent the average citizen from applying products, which stem from the cruelty towards animals, via methods of social engineering. In essence, the mere difference between both approaches is the choice that is made to start with. The first choice that guides all other choices. For instance, the monk has the ability choose to distance himself instead of involving himself in altering society until society has changed itself or to risk changing it himself, whereas the sociopath is in favourable circumstances provided with the choice whether not to kill whilst altering society or not to kill and distance himself from society, whilst remaining at the core of it. The sociopath would through instinct choose to remain within society either way. Yet, the choice becomes whether to distance onself from society by whatever means necessary or to modify it by any means necessitated. Conversely, the monk chooses to separate himself from society by whatever means necessary until he chooses to alter society by any means necessitated. One can even go as far as to predict the behaviour of a monk by observing a sociopath, and vice versa. Yet, the first choice at all times determines the probabilities of choices that are to follow.
