Cthulhu is a very interesting being/archetype. We saw many of his representations in The Bible of Cthulhu.
Now we have another off-topic question on Magick. What is magick? Is this subject off-topic? Well, no. Last night I slept and now I am writing this info. The purpose of this article is my gnosis of Cthulhu. What is magick? The magickal anatomy/image of Cthulhu. His star spawns. Well, actually this is going to be the analysis of every part of Cthulhu, the meaning of them, and the knowledge he gave me on Magick. Arguments on Magick are something that we see very often. From "Magick is Satanic" to "Magick is something mysterious" to "Magick is the power of the mind". Of course, we all know that the first one is not true and it is impossible to be true.
But first, Cthulhu.
Cthulhu's idea is the idea that Humanity is insignificant in the whole cosmos. His an archetype of real freedom.
But what his form represent? Every being form represents something, especially the items they are holding.
Cthulhu is said to be a combination of an octopus, a dragon, and a man with bat-like wings.
Wings represent Ascension. Cthulhu used that wings to fly to the universe. To us, those wing represents spirituality and ascension, the apotheosis of the self. If some cultists remember my experience I had with Dagon, I also mentioned this in my experience: "He (Cthulhu) will teach us how to open our wings to fly and reach the light"
Exactly as he will rise from the depths of the sea, his cultists will rise from the depths of their unconscious mind.
Octopus head does not show that he is actually a sea god, because he is not(It won't be analyzed here). Octopus as we know is a very intelligent animal. Also as we all probably know big head is something that leads us directly to aliens. So Cthulhu's head does not show that he is a sea god but it shows his wisdom, his creativity, and his intelligence. The octopus is a creature that lives in the oceans. Cthulhu lives somewhere in the abyss, this abyss is the Void and the black waters/waves of the cosmos.
Great Arguments have done on the subject of Magick, but what is the truth? The text that will follow will be an analysis of other people's experiences with mine included too. Magick is something that exists in the cosmos, so to the human mind simultaneously. Let's remember what is mentioned in the bible. Belief can alter reality. Magick exists in our own minds. With the powers of our mind, we can change the world around us and we can ascend spiritually. This is explained by science and in the bible. Ok, but where does this connect with Cthulhu? Your question will be answered soon. Cthulhu is the High Priest of the Great Old Ones, and this is why I disagree why Shub Niggurath is the most magickal as our brother Wyntre mentioned inside the Bible of Cthulhu. Cthulhu is the Old One that has the biggest knowledge on magick than all the other Old Ones. And this is why he has this big head. He has realized the powers of his mind and how to use them. Damon Dark a black magician who worked with Great Cthulhu he had some interesting experiences that fit with mine, and the cult. I will mention the part that can fit with the cult's beliefs. Cthulhu showed/told him that "He knows no magick because magick simply does not exist to him, it is simply science that there a lot things that our human mind cannot yet comprehend."
This leads us again to the Bible of Cthulhu. I will be brave enough to say this, Wyntre if you are reading this I believe you had similar gnosis from Cthulhu like me, but with your own way. Cthulhu truly calls.
So it does not matter if Dolls for example works or not, because exactly you believe it that they do, they will.
It does not matter what ritual to follow because exactly if it fits right with you, it will work. A friend of my spiritual mother, every time that she was waking up, she was telling herself, "I won the lottery" and after some months, she actually did. Indeed those people in ancient years were very wise because they were practicing magick very much, they were exercising with their mind. If we are able to do this again then I think it will be a big plus for humanity. Do what works for YOU. People when they hear this they don't like this, and it is a shame like you can change the world, YOU, with your powers that sleep in your mind, like Great Cthulhu in his prison.
ON STARSPAWNS OF CTHULHU
The star-spawns of Cthulhu are those beings who decided to serve him. They don't have an actual form, but now they have the image of their Lord. Actually, we are those star spawns are the cultist himself/herself. By following the ideas of Cthulhu you actually become his "image". Once in the past, I was sitting on my couch. I decided to say the Maelstorm Mantra and edit it in my phone. The mantra was played multiple times in the room when I felt a presence, something that you knew that something wasn't right, when I looked in front of me I saw (with my mind's eye) a creature like Cthulhu sitting there and looking at me. It was the same as Cthulhu. Its skin was greenish and some other parts yellow-greenish. Its eyeballs were like an octopus but with a yellowish-green color. But it had no wings. The presence was weird. The air in the room became heavy, I started to shudder, I was cold and I had a weird feeling like panic in my chest. It was like a part of the cosmos itself came into this room. Indeed this is the presence of Cthulhu, I have summoned him some times and the feeling was the same, and similar to others too(I can analyze this more but I will get off-topic)
For a long time (even Yesterday) I thought that this form that I saw was Cthulhu himself, but the thing is that I didn't saw Wings. So a thought I just made is this:" What if I saw actually my self?"
So my point is that every star spawn of an Old One is symbolizing their followers (Cultists). And by the time we become his image we strive to do what his image represents.
Cthulhu is indeed the Freedommer, The High Priest, and over time he makes more and more to worship him.
He truly is a teacher. A master. It is with this Knowledge we can learn the powers we hide inside of us.
This was my gnosis in short. I really missed some things and I didn't write this as I wanted, as it is very difficult to put it into words. Surely if I write a book I will analyze this much deeper as what I want is to spread the light of Old Ones. I hope The Cult will find it useful, from an insignificant Deist.
Cthulhu Truly Calls.
My opinion on invocations is still the same and I see them as beings but this on an other post.
