I guess you didn't realize that I was being sarcastic? It also felt right to say because of the builder's ego. But I don't appreciate it as much as possible, I could probably do something as good as it or better, but it's just too time consuming and doesn't accomplish anything.
Definitely very cool. Even cooler if this were done without any mods.
Also I have one thing I would suggest: Perhaps you could had hatches on the sides of the glowstone so its texture doesn't ruin anything. The hatches on the glowstone add that extra detail while keeping the lighting. Otherwise it's very impressive.
So, I'm recruited into this amazing server with amazing structures, and the owner and I are talking when he tells me that I'll be one of the best, and that there's one architect I can't beat named dvarvaro. So he takes me to styxreborn.com, the server this cathedral is on, and I explored the Cathedral. It's amazing. The crypt has a giant statue of dvarvaro with flaming eyes. After that, we go back to the server and I say I want to try and make a megabuild. He told me I was suffering from the dvarvaro effect XD
All I have to say is that this is indefinitely the greatest architecture you will ever see, for the full effect you have to actually see it in person.
