The Physics of Cthulhu

This paper is a bit of a doozy. Dr. Benjamin Tippett, a physicist at the University of New Brunswick, examines the eyewitness and other descriptions given in accounts relating to Francis Wayland Thurston's correlated narrative "The Call of Cthulhu." He finds descriptions of gravitational lensing and other exotic phenomena, phenomena not identified until decades after Thurston's manuscript was written. This realization leads to an settling conclusion in a must read paper.
