There's an interesting book on the psychological factors and impacts associated with killing, primarily by firearms used by soldiers (but a lot of it is applicable to humanity in general). It's called, "On Killing". It's on the Marine Corps Commandant's reading list and I think is also required reading at the FBI Academy.

I had a combat vet once ask me if I had ever had dreams about fighting or protecting myself/someone else from harm. I said sure.

He then asked.. in your dreams are you ever using force in slow motion or cant seem to put any force behind what you are doing.. does it ever seem like there is resistance like you are fighting in water or find that your actions have no effect on the other person?

I said.. No. In dreams, fighting is like fighting.

He said good! Your conscious mind and subconscious mind are one in the same. you are not conflicted.
