    I don't know that obsession is the best word. One definition of the word is:

    an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person's mind.


    SX is not simply an intrusive idea or thought. It's more like a singularity of focus that intensifies all your energy on a single object, kind of like a magnifying glass does with sunlight.

    SO is more diffuse in that it's spread across multiple objects within the group, community, or circle of friends. There may be a single idea that preoccupies or intrudes but it's spread across the social fabric.
