### Theory:

Of all the emotions which surged through me as I stood on the summit of Everest, looking over miles of panorama below us, the dominant one I think was humility. The physical in me seemed to say, ‘Thank God, it’s all over!” However, instead of being jubilant, there was a tinge of sadness. Was it because I had already done the ‘ultimate’ in climbing and there would be nothing higher to climb and all roads hereafter would lead down?

While gazing down into a vast region, he felt numerous emotions rushing through him. He believed that among all the emotions, humility was the dominant one. The fact that he had reached the summit of Everest and it did not fill him with joy. In addition, the sentence implies that while standing in front of nature, the narrator felt humble or lacked pride. His physical, on the other hand, seemed to say, "Thank God, it's all over!" It implies that the narrator wanted to thank God for assisting him in reaching his destination as well as he felt merely glad because everything got over.
