Sublime is a word that defines an overflow of emotions from reacting to certain scenes of nature, with parameters that have never been completely grounded. It is a emotional experience felt at the base of a mountain, or at the top of its peak; its felt walking among the redwoods in California while staring up through their vast, reaching branches; It is this feeling of helplessness that is pleasurable, an inability to take it all in, with a slight fear of what is before you. It can make you feel like you are standing before God. So what is it that causes us to feel these things from viewing nature? Am I weird or crazy for feeling all of these emotions from looking at nature? Why is it when I look at the vastness of the plains or walk through the woods in Kentucky, I still enjoy the view, but I don't feel this divine like experience? Why do I at times feel scared when looking at the mountain, but I so much more enjoy the pleasure of the view? All of these questions I hope to give light to.
