A Reflection of the Builder
To my knowledge, The Acolyte has not yet responded to the open letter from Agent @thedeacon1972 I published yesterday, but Hank Johnson just shared an interesting theory about the Tecthulhu… It’s worth a read and I look forward to hearing your thoughts in the comments…
That letter to the Acolyte has had me thinking… I am hoping she will respond — and folks should not take my thoughts here as a replacement for that — but I wanted to throw this idea out there so that you could help add to it.
Here’s my theory — well, it starts with a question. What if the machine we’ve been calling the Tecthulhu is always a manifestation of its creator?
Perhaps the reason Lynton-Wolfe’s Tecthulhu was a fearful object of unbridled power was because it travelled into our reality through Lynton-Wolfe himself… a man driven by a thirst for power disguised as knowledge and science.
I’ve been thinking of it like light and colored glass… The light took on Lynton-Wolfe’s hue as it passed through him.
Perhaps even Howcraft’s visions were similarly colored by their imaginations and perceptions — tinted with their particular brand of fear and darkness.UsMeh^w@n*dlEkTqIuSnAlRtAePf#o*rQdg5Zm0hWr
The deeper theory is that the Tecthulhu is not one thing, it is something waiting to manifest — and in the act of manifestation reflects its creator.
Food for thought.
