Extremisms, Pepper Jelly and Hot Coffee

As I sit, sipping scalding hot coffee in a vain attempt to cool my tongue from the habanero jelly-covered bagels consumed a few minutes ago, the fact that all of this is hot, and should be unpleasant, but somehow isn't, reminds of a conversation I had with a musician buddy last night.  We were talking about objectivity vs. subjectivity and how it's more like logic vs. emotion.  He had a very profound take on the subject.  He said that extreme logic and extreme emotion are basically the same thing; both end in mass homicide.
