I'm not sure to what extent sociopath and psychopath are real things, in the sense of being pathologies. Pretty much all animals in nature are like that.

A lion/ess will rip a zebra's throat out and then go cuddle with its cubs. Nothing weird about that.

It just sounds like more (((modern psychology))) by Dr. Shlomo.

Does a lioness cuddle with zebras and rip the throats of her young?

Killing is not sociopathy.
Committing suicide by killing those like yourself, is.
Killing indiscriminately, and for the sake of killing, is.

The idea that the 'self' is an end in itself, making all others your 'enemy' is sociopathic.

A reversion to an animal state that can only recognize self, and can only identify with what is outside itself intuitively, instinctively - without knowing why or how.

A male lion does not know why it must kill the cubs another male fathered, but it does.
It does not know why or how it does not kill its own cubs...it smells itself in them and doesn't.
It's conception of 'self' is limited. It has no ability to know species identity, sexual identity, ideology, life in general.
A male lion cannot step outside itself and see the 'big picture', within which its own self-interests compete.
It recognizes no will, no law, other than its own. It is a dumb animal.

It has no ability to appreciate its species or how vulnerable to extinction it is....it acts and judges within a very shallow perceptual-event-horizon.

This is how metaphors can lead to errors, if taken literally. It's one of the risks in all forms of art.
The metaphor implies more than can be justified, and is actually used to insert absurdity alongside reasoning, so that the two can become indistinguishable.

Information = pattern....a vibrating/oscillating pattern - Energy.
Space = possibilities, so a patterned oscillation implies a consistent sequence interacting across multiple dimensions.
So, the sequence establishes in which dimension it is interactive, and in what sequence.
Time can be thought of as the rhythm's duration and/or speed of oscillation, in relation to the observer's own metabolic rhythms: a juxtaposition which makes time a value-judgemental.
Metaphors can imply intent, when none is necessary to explain all unities, except organic molecules, cells.
The primary intent of a cell is to replicate itself - making copies of itself. On this level there is no possibility of contradiction, nor is judgement necessary.

Only on the level of a unity of cells - a collective aggregate - such as man, can a meme theoretically contradict genes.
And it can only do so ideologically, noetically, and not pragmatically....because even if the organism is foolish enough to try it will die.
This is why Nihilism can only remain theoretical, political, and cannot be applied or, if they do, they must lie - contradicting their own stated principles.
A meme that is in harmony with the organism's genes - is an extension of them - do not require justification, nor do they require others to believe in their validity.
The environment, and the organism's success within it, suffices.
Only nihilistic memes, impotent outside human brains because they contradict reality, must validate themselves via the acknowledgement of others.

Memes are gene specific....the meme emerges within a specific population group, experiencing particular events within a particular environment.
Memes are extension of genes, evolving in unison, to begin with, and then transmitted to other genes, via semiotics.
