The better that human technology gets, the more we’re able to explore our world. In fact, humanity has been to just about everywhere there is to go on Earth, with the only exception being the depths of the oceans. It’s strange, really, that we’ve sent men to the Moon and are in the planning stages of sending teams to Mars, but we’ve still yet to really crack all of the secrets of the depths of the oceans. Our oceans have taken on mythical status because of this, because we are naturally curious and the question arises if we really are alone in the universe. How could we know when we don’t even know what’s in our oceans?
Imagine our surprise at this discovery from Google Earth, pointed out to us from the LAD Bible. Apparently entering a set of coordinates (63° 2’56.73″S 60°57’32.38″W) into Google Earth will give you a view of something quite strange down in the Southern Ocean. This YouTuber posits that whatever the object may be is massive and that the image may have captured a massive beast breaching to the surface. The question from said YouTuber is simple; is this the mythological Kraken?
The image could appear to look a bit like a giant squid. It could also be a whale or a simple outcropping of rocks. But what fun is that, right? There could be a more sinister explanation, too. Could this be proof that Cthulhu exists? For those not up on their Lovecraftian lore, Cthulhu is a Great Old One rumored to be trapped on the sunken island of R’lyeh in the Southern Pacific ocean. The lore suggests that it may, in fact, be particularly close to this anomaly. That he’s actually there, dead, dreaming, sending us all nightmares.
“Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn.
In his house at R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.”
Forget about the Kraken, is that a photograph of him? Did Google Earth capture a photo of an awake Cthulhu?
