Synopsis: In 2011 I arrived to Sete Cidades. I recall Kant’s ideas on the sublime. He argues that the sublime is the comprehension of the body, before the mathematic measure there is the aesthetic measure (measured by the body). The sublime takes place when the human measure is overcome. i.e. when the body experiments the idea of being bitten by an imaginary mountain. To experience the sublime: sensibility, a body, being human, being finite are necessary.
