Posts Tagged ‘azathoth’
The alchemist term azoth stretches from the beginning to the end in its etymological roots and unites cohesion and corrosion. This term may have inspired Lovecraft’s gibbering monstrosity known as Azathoth. This blind idiot god, I argue, is somewhere between or perhaps an interpenetration of Oken’s Zero and Plotinus’ One.
