All thoughts arise on their own. You could say they arise from nowhere.

This is a fact.

The alternative would require that we pre-think our thoughts before we think them.

Which makes zero sense.

everyone has thoughts like those from time to time.

not everything we think of is going to be lollipops and rainbows. everyone has a dark side, the difference is whether we choose to act on those thoughts, or if those thoughts end up appalling us out of action.

Hmm...not really sure about that. I rarely have these feelings so i'm not sure it would be called obsessive. Its just really strange. I don't know...


Mine aren't that frequent either. But I do have them.
I just used the term OCD because it was the best english medical term I could to the word we use as a paralell to the word we use in norwegian.
We use the term "tvangstanker", which basicly means "forced thoughts", and it's an actual medical condition.


This is mostly correct, and happens to a lot of people actually. Many people with Aspergers (Such as myself), High Functioning Autism, and other illnesses like it can start developing "raging thoughts" much like the forced thoughts Syndicaidramon mentioned. It can be brought on by anxiety, and other things that might up your adrenaline and cause you to want to "fight or run", this could also include the dominance that someone else suggested.
A while back I was having thoughts just as you mention in the OP, many times a day, but like you would never act on it. Anxiety was my biggest trigger, and most of the time some of these thoughts were a lot more horrifying than the ones you mentioned, and quite violent to the point of really scaring me.
As others mentioned if its just once in a while, its your body reacting to certain situations and "preparing" you, but if it continues to get progressively worse you may want to think about what anxiety, or something that might be causing you undue distress in your daily life, and get it looked into, just my friendly advice.

Okay, that makes me feel better. Some responses were making me paranoid...

I have thoughts that just don't stop. They aren't bad actions, though. But it repeats. Over and over.

Well as said before, many people (including myself) have thoughts like those. Sometimes I start laughing silently and my friends think I'm about to snap or something.

I think Freud would consider this a conflict between the Id and Superego. Consider developing a stronger Ego to help identify whether it's your Id talking or your Superego or else you may run into trouble with a distorted perception of reality. This is normal though, according to Freud this conflict between the Id and Superego is what makes us better people.

Also try meditation, it's a very helpful practice.

Did you figure that out on your own? If not, where'd you learn it? It sounds kind of Buddhist. But I also agree with you, there isn't a thinker behind the thought.

Its not getting worse or frequent. It just happens every once in a while but it is disturbing. Thanks for your response, this makes me feel better.

Sorry for laughing but I saw a show where the comedian mentions something like that and discusses about that same topic.
If I remember correctly one of his examples went something like this:
"While you're friend is talking you randomly think 'I wonder if I punched him right now? Would he punch back? Can I actually take him on a fight?'"

Things like that, then he mentions about that self-control mechanism of our brain the we call "conscience".

I always have random thoughts like that but I don't bother actually doing any of those if I know there's a serious consequence to it.

Desires like that are natural, they probably stem from something else you are experiencing elsewhere, most likely mentally.
