Passion is a product of emotion. The known definition of emotion is 'any strong feeling'. Whereas, the known definition of passion is 'any strong emotion'. Therefore we have proven how and why passion would be a product of emotion. An emotion, such as love or jelousy, is a mental and physiological state associated with a wide variety of feelings, thoughts, and behaviours. The neurobiological explanation of human emotion is that emotion is a pleasant or unpleasant mental state organized in the limbic system of the mammalian brain. When distinguished from reactive responses of reptiles, emotions would then be mammalian elaborations of general vertebrate arousal patterns, in which neurochemicals (neurochemicals are any organic chemical/substance released by the brain according to situations) step-up and step-down the brain's activity level, as visible in body movements, gestures, and postures. Therefore we can conclude that passion is unavoidable and uncontrolable. As we can see that passion overcomes logical reasoning/thinking. Therefore logic is distorted and unclear which is used as a vehicle for passion. Which would then lead to unwanted results. A good example of such would by lying and dishonesty.
