TS/Sublime

I’m trying to figure out what to deliver through project still.

At the same time studying more about ‘value’ for quality of experience, lighting, acoustic, temperature, etc.

In terms of direction of project, I’ve been researching broadly about 1) history of church architectures, not so much about exterior, but more about interior formation, 2) Sublime(view of Edmund Burke). Also kept thinking about what I want to deliver, and how I want to deliver.

It is a slow going process, but good to jump between thinking and producing of TS book.

 

Numinous

The numinous experience also has a personal quality, in that the person feels to be in communion with a wholly Other. The numinous experience can lead in different cases to belief in deities, the supernatural, the sacred, the holy and/or thetranscendent.(Wikipedia)

Quotation from C.S. Lewis, citing Rudolf Otto, described the numinous experience as follows:

Suppose you were told there was a tiger in the next room: you would know that you were in danger and would probably feel fear. But if you were told ‘There is a ghost in the next room’, and believed it, you would feel, indeed, what is often called fear, but of a different kind. It would not be based on the knowledge of danger, for no one is primarily afraid of what a ghost may do to him, but of the mere fact that it is a ghost. It is ‘uncanny’ rather than dangerous, and the special kind of fear it excites may be called Dread. With the Uncanny one has reached the fringes of the Numinous. Now suppose that you were told simply ‘There is a mighty spirit in the room’, and believed it. Your feelings would then be even less like the mere fear of danger: but the disturbance would be profound. You would feel wonder and a certain shrinking–a sense of inadequacy to cope with such a visitant of prostration before it–an emotion which might be expressed in Shakespeare’s words ‘Under it my genius is rebuked’. This feeling may be described as awe, and the object which excites it as the Numinous.[1]
