Take a trip to the Prairies of Northern America and you will notice a remarkable phenomenon that has gone un-named for a long time, the effect of the horizon on our consciousness. People living on Prairies are different than people living in valleys or hills. The constant presence of the flat country creates a huge orientation to the big blue sky. That’s why they call it Big Sky Country and that means you are able to take in an extended horizon as the sky meets the earth. There’s something primeval about the meeting place between these two constants in our lives that starts a powerful physiological response. Just thinking about the horizon meets with a big response in the body. Try it, stare at the image below and see what happens in your body and mind. Then try imagining the horizon and follow the responses. It’s as if the horizon reminds us of greater universal forces and a more connected scale of nature, after all the horizon represents the curve of the Earth as a planet and therefore its relationship to other planetary bodies and the cosmos. The sky doesn’t do this on its own, it gives a sense of space and room and the Earth gives a sense of the details of life but the horizon shows us our planet and takes us into a connection with a larger world.
