    • 448 Words
    • 2 Pages

    The Cthulhu Mythos manifested first with Lovecraft in his short story ‘The Call of Cthulhu’, published in 1928.(24) The ‘heroes’ of the story, at least to the followers of the cult, are the Great Old Ones whose earthly followers might evoke them from extraterrestrial dimensions when astral alignments are right. Their followers were, from Lovecraft’s description, the most degraded dregs of the Earth: They worshipped, so they said, the Great Old Ones who lived ages before there were any men, and who came to the young world out of the sky. Those Old Ones were gone now, inside the earth and under the sea; but their dead bodies had told their secrets in dreams to the first men, who formed a cult which had never died.(25) Frater Tenebrous, rationalising…

    • 6 Pages

    The Inescapable Void and Ex Oblivione No splendid paradise, no eternal torment, no divine deity; only oblivion and an inescapable void. This is H.P. Lovecraft’s Ex Oblivione prose poem’s main message, but horror enthusiasts are left wondering why he chose to convey this message in particular. Some might say that this was meant to be a work of pure fiction; a poem that does not parallel Lovecraft’s life in any way. Others might say that this poem is a commentary on Lovecraft’s beliefs on…

The long narrow dark region on Pluto's equator named Cthulhu Regio, which has a nickname The Whale given after the shape, is the large…

    and that on a cosmic scale, I am as significant as a grain of sand on a beach, but I am ok with this, in fact, I laugh about it. In conclusion, I accept the meaninglessness of it all. When there is no meaning, I give it meaning. Because being given a meaning means that you have a destiny and a purpose, which is good and all but also means you do not have free will since everything is planned out for you already. This is good enough for some individuals but for me if life is meaningless, you…
