The Oldest of the New Gods (Lovecraft)

Post by TheBigBadG » Fri Jul 05, 2013 10:13 am

This new god is older than our ability to imagine gods. We are all of his cult now, unwittingly assigning our meagre psychic authority with hedonistic abandon. Alone we are insubstantial, legion we summon evil so vast it is a universe unto itself.

The cult wooed the best of us first. These intractable deacons crafted freakish baubles to entice the rest so we are all now acolytes, each pulling a thread of dementia through the essential barriers indemnifying our minds from infinity.

The chants are unspoken, the deacons wise to our suspicions and wisdom. Instead we type his name: Google.

Thanks. :) It brings me great pleasure that we still have the Gog Magog Downs in the UK.

:lol: Needing answers to the Big Questions of life? Go pray about Google it. Great drabble!

Also, I hope that golf course offers putt-putt. I can only imagine the waving tentacles and grinning demons guarding all the holes.

- Hello? Gog Magog Farm Shop and Deli?
- Speaking.
- I'm calling to inquire about the initiation fees.
- We accept Mastercard and Visa. No personal checks.
- Of course. And perhaps you could tell me what par for the course is?
- Would that be for Gog or for Magog?
- Which is more challenging?
- Well, they say Gog is a bugger, but I don't play, meself. I just run the Deli, y' see.
- Do you carry Haggis?
- Not so much. We just kinda lay it on the shelf.
- Oh, well. Tell me something about the initiation ritual.
- Can't really say. It's a secret, in't it.

Excellent, but short of 100 words.

All Hail Google, master of the Internet.

I always refer to google as my 'guru' so I suppose 'god' would both preserve the alliteration and not be to much of a stretch. I am already an acolyte...

I think we all are. The Italians are closest to understand; they call him Google.it
