This is Pando, in Utah. Seemingly a grove of multiple quaking aspens, in actuality it is one organism, a massive root system that sends up trees to harvest sunlight. But one could say that these trees are connected at the roots. In the fall the leaves turn color simultaneously, the root system giving all the trees/leaves the same biochemistry.
Scooter Libby to Judith Miller (Sept. 15, 2005): “You went into jail in the summer. It is fall now. . . . Out west, where you vacation, the aspens will already be turning. They turn in clusters, because their roots connect them. . . .” (http://www.nytimes.com/packages/pdf/national/nat_MILLER_051001.pdf).
Could Scooter Libby be saying to Judith Miller, “Remember, psychopaths are all connected. Connected at the roots. Stand by me.”? Could be.
In “Confessions of a Sociopath,” Thomas self-identifies “more as a sociopath than by my gender or profession or race.” Confessions of a Sociopath — A Life Spent Hiding in Plain Sight
This makes sense with everything I know. Psychopaths always side with co-psychopaths versus the empath world. In court, psychopathic attorneys, judges, prosecutors will almost always side (in act, though not by claim) with the psychopathic party, breaking the law to do so. In school psychopathic teaches will always protect psychopathic students. Psychopathic bosses will rarely, and only if pushed, fire a psychopathic employee. A psychopathic parent will always favor the psychopathic offspring over the non-psychopathic.
