L'appel du vide - The call of the void
Basically the sudden unexpected urge to do something horrific to others or to oneself.

Maybe some people just can't fight the urge?

quote:

This supports the previous study’s title ‘An urge to jump affirms the urge to live’, as the experience of the phenomenon could in fact reflect an individual’s sensitivity to internal signals which in turn affirms their will to live. The idea put forward by Sigmund Freud of a “death wish” where he stated that ‘everything living dies for internal reasons’ and ‘the aim of all life is death’ could explain the impulse to jump off of high places. It is proposed that the phenomenon actually demonstrates the strength of the survival instinct. Therefore, even with Freud’s proposal of such emotions being present in the human brain, we continue to avoid danger when confronted with the Call of the Void.

I always called them intrusive thoughts.

Much more prevalent among gifted children.

The worst one I’ve had is while holding a baby on a balcony. Never wanted to do anything but damn if the thought doesn’t pop in your head.
