  1. This is not so much a matter of consciousness, but of what influences it. Consciousness is influenced by genetic predispositions, programs passed down by inheritance or formed through upbringing. You need to pay attention to the set of attitudes and the formation of thinking. The external information environment in which a person is located. The principle of Mowgli raised by wolves is quite real.

    Maybe I will express myself pseudoscientifically, but as I see it, everyone's consciousness is initially “pure”. There is something divine and transcendent about it. This is what it is “placed” in, what kind of body, with what deviations, this already determines the manifestation of consciousness and experience, quantity and quality.

    Why exactly consciousness got into this body, and why exactly everything happens like this, where thoughts and desires come from, are deeper questions. Questions to karmic, energy spatial, timeless cycles.

    The same question can be asked: how does the consciousness of a predator differ from that of a herbivore? Consciousness is one, its manifestation is different.

  2. I remember a neighbor from my childhood who caught cats, took them by the hind legs and with all the dope with a side swing along an arc trajectory, slammed their heads against a post. After that, he threw at the same post and suffered from convulsions. I couldn't understand his need to cause pain and suffering to an innocent animal, which I would never have been able to do myself, but I could see it, and I couldn't move, like a rabbit in the headlights. So he had the consciousness of a villain, and I was afraid not only to do evil, but also to prevent him from doing this evil, I was afraid of this evil in my address. I just stopped communicating with him.

  3. Perhaps this is due to two factors::

    the narrowness of the “own” locus and the breadth of the “not own” locus-and, accordingly, distortions in the manifestation of empathy, when the synthesis of oxytocin provokes destructive activity in relation to the “opposite”, competing group and its representatives. “He loves his kids so much that he's cut down on the neighbors.” This violation is associated with the manifestation of sadistic pleasure, although it can be seen as a recurrent connection with punishing oneself for “bad behavior”, and a hormonal reward for the unconscious “identification with the parent”, “dad, look, I'm good, I punish the bad”. Such a struggle of the child-self with the parent-self, and both are happy.�

    The second is socio-cultural, “if you don't fuck, they'll fuck you”, “if there is no person, there is no problem”, “only one will survive”. The legacy of chimpanzees, Genghis Khan and Stalin.

  4. For the villain there is no evil, he does not step over himself, he has no remorse, and he is not tormented by nightmares, because he does not do “evil”, he is even sure that “he is like everyone else”, or even better

    Here is a Japanese sushi master, takes another fluttering fish, and zhah, the fish has no head, and they cut it open, and in five seconds the master prepares a fillet from it, which the visitor will devour laid on a rice bun. Sushi master villain? No, he's a sushi master. A restaurant customer cracking fish is not a villain? No, he's just eating, he's having dinner. But not from the point of view of a radical vegan, for whom they are villains. In history, there were very different ideas about villainy, remember at least the rituals of the Carthaginians, which froze the blood in the veins of even Roman senators. The evil is different: someone cuts up fish, someone burns babies alive, and someone signs the law on the abolition of preferential medicines, shortening life, causing suffering and death, not with his own hand, not throwing the baby into the brazier, but with his own power signing the document.
