Was H.P.Lovecraft an Illuminatus?

I thought about a long time about posting about this idea. But yet i am in the mood to be brave and let you know what i think about it. Rhode Island Providence writer HPL influenced by “old masters” of “mythos writing” like E.A.Poe, Lord Dunsany, Algernon Blackwood and the likes, made an immense impact on liteature and arts in every direction you can think of. Of course after his death. All his work is now “public domain”, meaning worthless to the rich, the old world order. “Worthless” can also mean “dangerous” for the OWO. Let me list up some points, which i think are illuminating:

1. Mankind is not alone in this universe, which is endless, the universe is full of beings. CHECK

2. There is an evil force in the universe, we call satan, and his minions, the gruesome dominator gods. CHECK

3. Mankind has no idea of its origin and true purpose. CHECK

4. Mankind has no idea of its true possibilities. CHECK

5. Those who seek “occult” knowledge are damned. CHECK

6. Interstellar psychic travel, out of the body. CHECK

7. Being overtaken by, or takeover another body and control it, being the being. CHECK

8. He created his own religion, the “Cthulhu Mythos”, which has millions of “followers” today. CHECK

9. A totally “invert” person, but with a communication to the “outside” with an amount of 180.000 letters. CHECK

10. The amount of philosophy, science, and mathemathics way ahead of his time in his stories. CHECK

The list simply goes on.

What is your opinoin on the subject, if you are intersted in my little “side kick”?

“This is not dead, which can eternal lie, and in strange aeons even death may die” – H.P.Lovecraft

  1. I find this to be very interesting. But I cannot decide the side which he may be positioned on with the subject of knowledge- for in once sentence(in The Call of Cthulhu) he states “The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.”
    This would imply both that he believes the human mind is far more knowledgeable/capable than what we perceive, and that it is a bad thing to be able to perceive all it is capable of.
    The very next sentence states, “We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.” which would suggest he knows humans have the capabilities to be much more than they are, but suggests it is not something we are supposed to do. Whose intentions however, he does not clarify- i.e. does Rex Mundi’s intend we should never reach enlightenment or our collected mind intended we would not?
    Either way, Lovecraft was an amazingly insightful author. What are your thoughts on this?

    • hi jake
      in my personal view HPL was not an Illuminatus, there are too may “flaws”, regarding his whole work and his personal character.
      You are right so far, HPL always said “DON’T” and we, the Illuminati say “DO IT”.

      best regards
