Happy Halloween!

Kant Dracula
Get it?
Kant Dracula has a ghost story for you to share around the campfire tonight...
Astonishment that borders upon terror, the dread and the holy awe which seizes the observer at the sight of mountain peaks rearing themselves to heaven, deep chasms and streams raging therein, deep-shadowed solitudes that dispose one to melancholy meditations—this, in the safety in which we know ourselves to be, is not actual fear but only an attempt to feel fear by aid of the imagination, that we may feel the might of this faculty combining with the mind's repose the mental movement thereby excited, and being thus superior to internal nature—and therefore to external—so far as this can have any influence on our feeling of well-being. — Critique of Spooky Judgment
