Excerpt from The Call of Cthulhu by H.P. Lovecraft.

The most

merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. 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. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

    Having reading many of Lovecraft's works this year, I particularly enjoyed this passage. In a sense it summarises much of the philosophy underpinning his writing, that of the "terrible unknowns of the world." I hope you enjoy them too. ☺

    BTW how to pronounce the word "direction" better? Using 'e'-sound or 'ai'-sound after D?

    @Lydia I guess it must be visible to those who can dream it. 😁

    @Player Interestingly, it's not one of my favourites of his works though it's been so seminal!
