In H. P. Lovecraft’s well-known tale “The Call of Cthulhu” the narrator (Francis Wayland Thurston) tells about strange facts that he has learned from the papers of his recently deceased grand-uncle, George Gammell Angell, and from personal investigation. Among these facts is the momentarily raising of a mighty stone city called R'lyeh from the sea-bottom of the Pacific Ocean due to an earthquake that came up on March 1st, 1925. In the tale it is also revealed that the Great Cthulhu is accidentally liberated by a band of sailors, and emerges from a monstrously carven portal; an immense black door with an ornate lintel, threshold, and jambs around it. I wonder where that huge black doorway from which Cthulhu emerges leads to.
I haven’t exhausted much in the Cthulhu mythos trying to answer my question but so far I have found nothing, thus, I believe that, in order to know where the h… the large door may leads, we have to try to find the answer inside the tale itself, starting with trying to decipher the enigma of the door. I say enigma because upon close examination of the door, the reader discovers that it is not any door but it has an abnormal geometry (non-Euclidian) that definitively violates the laws of our space and time. Here some descriptions of the door from which Cthulhu emerges:
…It was, Johansen said, like a great barn-door ... they could not decide whether it lay flat like a trap-door or slantwise like an outside cellar-door. ….Then Donovan felt over it delicately around the edge, pressing each point separately as he went. He climbed interminably along the grotesque stone moulding - that is, one would call it climbing if the thing was not after all horizontal - and the men wondered how any door in the universe could be so vast.
But, it is not only the door but the whole city of R’lyeh.
One could not be sure that the sea and the ground were horizontal, hence the relative position of everything else seemed phantasmally variable…... all the rules of matter and perspective seemed upset….. the geometry of the place was all wrong.
Therefore, one explanation of the nature of the door (and the city) is that they are contained inside a kind of curved space-time bubble, right? I said space-time and not only space because, according to the narration, Johansen experienced time dilation.
...From that time till his rescue on the 12th the man remembers little...
With the above, I can deduct that behind the door everything shall be also space-time curved tolerant and also that behind the door there is something like what is inside Schrödinger's box where the cat, like Cthulhu, lies neither living nor dead. What is it?
