Lovercraftian Magic

Post # 1
For many people Cthulhu Mythos is a fictional universe created by Lovercraft. But there are some who believe that he based the Mythos on existing highr beings. There are many cults out there who worship Cthulhu as a deity in a religion where magic is a very important aspect of. So i wanted to know more about it :D . Is anyone here following this path? And if so what does it involve?

Thanks for your time :)

PS.: I am reposting this because the first time i posted this thread it got deleted -_-

This sounds interesting, even though I don't know what it is. Do you mind telling me more on what Cthulhu Mythos and Lovecraft is?

there are no credible cults or religion devoted to cthulu or the old ones.

that being said, lovecraft is a paragon of American gothic horror fiction that bleeds into insanity.

his stuff was so ahead of its time it is poetic and the imagery constructed leaves enough to make your own imagination run wild with it. if you have time to read fiction and think you may enjoy the genre then go for it. you wont be disappointed.

The Dunwich Horror comes to mind as a nice start and then go from there.

I wonder if your post getting deleted was due to the fluff aspect of it?

Anyway, the novels and short stories are wonderful to read, but any cult aspiring to raising yog shothoth or cthulu are pure fluffomancy.

Well, some of the guys at the EM forums talk about using the Simon Necronomicaon, but that's for goetian beings not Lovecraftian/Cthonic ones.

like I said, its amazing fiction, it really riles up the unconscious mind with incredible images, but still fiction.

It is my belief that Lovecraft's nihilistic tendencies contradict the basic idea behind magic, harnessing your power to effect the world around you. The eldrich horrors he described were stagnant and unchanging forces, while humans have always been in a state transformation and, hopefully, optimization.

You might want to get the following books:

Necronomicon: The Wanderings of Alhazred and

Grimoire of the Necronomicon

both of which are written by Donald Tyson,but then he strays kinda far from the Mythos on some points,so you might want to order a copy of:


The Necronomicon:Selected Stories and Essays Concerning
the Blasphemous Tome of the Mad Arab

http://catalog.chaosium.com/product_info.php?products_id=54

While it has fictional tales in it it also has a version of the Necronomicon in it that could be expanded upon to include rituals,spells,ritual tools etc in it if you where to put it into a journal or something like that thus you'd have your own Lovecraftian style necronomicon .

As to H.P.Lovecrafts stories you can read a lot of them here for free and they might also give you extra food for thought:

?Collected Stories (67 stories and novellas)

I would also like to state that though the necronomicon and the old ones started out as fiction it is now indeed a legit paradigm
and the old ones could now be considered thought forms despite all their "it's fiction" claims,because as one guy once put it:

"what is fact what is fiction?

most of the people out there see magic as a fiction while for a few percentage magic and thoughts are even more solid than the hardest stone!"

and another stated to me:

"Everything is consciousness, even universally so, so everything, even fiction, has some form of existence because without consciousness there could not be an idea of fiction, no one to create and perceive fiction. Even things people usually consider real are ultimately illusory according to some philosophies, like Advaita Vedanta, even all the universes are ultimately illusory and only Brahman exists even though it is beyond existence and non existence alike because it cannot be perceived by our limited minds, only slightly glimpsed so to speak, it can only be experienced, you can only become That and then there will be no more you, because there was no you in the first place."
