to be the last guard at the gate. >>

Aha! Post a guard.
Again, you are taking the stance (irrational, IMO) that our emotions are "out
to get us", rather than acknowledging them as valuable and neccessary
cognitive function of our beautifully engineered ( if little understood)
computational machinery called the human brain.

This is something like the concept of "original sin", BTW.
