Neil Young sings "Double Rainbow"

by the way, I still have yet to find any reference to where the double rainbow guy admits to having been on any kind of drugs the morning he saw the rainbows.  So I'll keep believing he was simply having an intense, emotional, pure Burkean experience of the sublime, thank you very much.  :-)

I don't think it really matters whether or not the double rainbow guy was on drugs. Either way, he was still experiencing the sublime. If he was under the influence of drugs, it would have intensified his experience, but even if that is the case, it should not change what the view can see directly with their own two eyes. The guy is freaking out about the beauty of a rainbow, an obvious reaction to the sublime. Whether or not drugs enhanced his experience is completely irrelevant. The fact is, even if it was a hallucination from the drugs, he DID experience the sublime.
