  • Hello again! I just have one small question. What exactly is a “Supreme Archetype”?

    Now I know what archetypes are they are usually The pure form/example of an occupation or thing. For example “the police officer archetype” or “the mother archetype” or “the hero archetype”

    But I don’t know what the pure form of a supreme archetype would it be. Is it like the pure form of God or something?

    • Well, supreme archetype isn't a trope/archetype in fiction like true hero or dark lord. It is a formless undefinable being in Cthulhu Mythos and all outer gods are fractions of it. In this wiki we used to take azathoth as the supreme archetype but the description of supreme archetype makes it crystal clear that azathoth isn't exactly the supreme archetype and even azathoth seems to be mere fraction of it.

      I am working on a blog that'll explain these things. For now I am adding the supreme archetype in the omnipotence page.

    • The Supreme Archetype is Yog-Sothoth.

    • Yog sothoth has been described as an incomplete facet of supreme archetype. When people think about suprem archetype, they thing about yog sothoth because it is all in one and one in all but in reality as stated in the short story, it is just merely an incomplete view of suprem archetype.

    • Wait there’s a supreme archetype in The Cthulhu mythos and it’s stronger than Azathoth?

      I heard that term before but I thought it was usually pointing towards (or being another name of) Yog-Sothoth.

      I think I need to read The Dunwich Horror and maybe The Lurker of the Threshold again.

      Wow, a being stronger than Azathoth in The Cthulhu Mythos.

    • "It was an All-in-One and One-in-All of limitless being and self—not merely a thing of one Space-Time continuum, but allied to the ultimate animating essence of existence's whole unbounded sweep—the last, utter sweep which has no confines and which outreaches fancy and mathematics alike."

      All the outer gods are mere facets of Yog-Sothoth.

    • Again, it's been stated that Yog sothoth is an incomplete view of Supreme archetype in the through the gates of silver key. My blog will contain the actual scans and statements. So, have some patience.

      Read through the gates of silver key short story, it contains everything.
