Boundless Beautied God

An object is monstrous if by its magnitude it annihilates the end which its concept constitutes.

The Critique of the Power of Judgement. Immanuel Kant.

‘Then Jesus is monstrous,” Paul licks his finger.

It is of the greatest importance in a critique of taste to decide whether beauty is really reducible to the concept of perfection.

The Critique of the Power of Judgement. Immanuel Kant.

‘Jesus is perfect, wait,’ Paul almost licks his finger, ‘have I ever said he was beautiful? A hot babe?’

That is beautiful which pleases in the mere judging. From this it follows of itself that it must please without any interest.

The Critique of the Power of Judgement. Immanuel Kant.

‘Yup, definitely,’ Paul chalks his finger, ‘Jesus is not beautiful.’ Paul nods, ‘we ought to be pitied, most of all, if he isn’t risen from the dead. O we are soo interested. He is who we are.’

That is sublime which pleases immediately through its resistance to the interests of the senses.

The Critique of the Power of Judgement. Immanuel Kant.

‘Jesus is sublime,’ Paul checkers another black line, ‘he resists the temptation of my flesh, my senses. It all feels so good, immediately, beneath the skin!’
