Great Old One
Lovecraft once wrote: "All my tales are based upon the fundamental premise that common human laws and interests and emotions have no validity or significance in the vast cosmos-at-large. He further imagined that the fundamental truths of the universe were so alien and horrifying that mere exposure to them might result in madness or suicide. While humanity might crave both comfort and the truth, only one or the other was possible to it. The human mind was an inflexible container. It could not maintain both more truth and complete sanity — more of one poured in must spill out more of the other. Humans desperate for the power cloaked within truth might choose to forgo all remnants of sanity in exchange for becoming adept at manipulating the secrets of time and space.

Lovecraft created a number of deities throughout the course of his literary career, including the "Great Old Ones" and aliens, such as the "Elder Things", with sporadic references to other miscellaneous deities e. Nodens whereas the "Elder Gods" are a later creation of other prolific writers such as August Derleth , who was credited with formalizing the Cthulhu Mythos. An ongoing theme in Lovecraft's work is the complete irrelevance of mankind in the face of the cosmic horrors that apparently exist in the universe, with Lovecraft constantly referring to the "Great Old Ones": a loose pantheon of ancient, powerful deities from space who once ruled the Earth and who have since fallen into a deathlike sleep. Lovecraft named several of these deities, including Cthulhu , Ghatanothoa , and Yig. With a few exceptions, Cthulhu, Ghatanothoa, et al. Although worshipped by deranged human and inhuman cults, these beings are generally imprisoned or restricted in their ability to interact with most people beneath the sea, inside the Earth, in other dimensions, and so on , at least until the hapless protagonist is unwittingly exposed to them. Lovecraft visited this premise in many of his stories, notably his short story, " The Call of Cthulhu ", with reference to the eponymous creature.
