From beyond

BldgBlog finds a parallel between the Antares neutrino telescope and the writings of H.P. Lovecraft, viz:

Within twenty-four hours that machine near the table will generate waves acting on unrecognized sense organs that exist in us as atrophied or rudimentary vestiges. Those waves will open up to us many vistas unknown to man and several unknown to anything we consider organic life. We shall see that at which dogs howl in the dark, and that at which cats prick up their ears after midnight. We shall see these things, and other things which no breathing creature has yet seen. We shall overleap time, space, and dimensions, and without bodily motion peer to the bottom of creation.

Ia! Ia! Cthulhu ftagn!!

Give no quarter to the cephalopods. Give them death and their children. Death, death I say!

Ah, yes, that reminds me. From Beyond was recently issued on DVD. I must needs update my movie collection, if only to revisit the rather hot psychiatrist in black leather. Yowza.
