Getting better all the ti-i-ime...

No idea why I decided to label the title with a beatles song, it just felt right. Thanks for the comments everyone.

Ok, so the sublime has pretty much taken over my project on Emily Dickinson, as well as possibly the idea of a counter sublime. I.E. the idea that something is grand beyond description/comprehension is the sublime, the counter sublime is something within the experience that counter acts that very impression, or makes it smaller, comprehensible, etc...

So those are usually easy to find in Dickinson's writings, but I was wondering if anyone had examples from movies and especially from Youtube of something that is sublime, but counters itself.

Notice this picture, definitely a sublime thing:
