The sublime appears associated with nature when we are overwhelmed by the wonder and terror of its immensity. This wonder is a state of suspension that is only possible with a certain degree of horror or surprise.
The sublime usually represents the experience of our physical finitude and impotence in the face of the fury of the force of nature, but in this paradoxical epoch, the force of nature appears decimated by the omnipresence of humanity and “humans themselves become a geological force” (Guinard-Terri M., 2016: p.184).
