Science turns its eye to the Cthulhu Mythos: how the city of R’lyeh can remain hidden

Possible Bubbles of Spacetime Curvature in the South Pacific

Just over a year ago, Benjamin K. Tippett, mathematician, theoretical physicist, and contender for becoming a mad scientist, published a paper that postulates how the city of R’lyeh can remain hidden from observation and discovery. His paper is based on analysis of the account of  the sailor Gustaf Johansen,which features in H.P. Lovecraft’s classic story The Call of Cthulhu.  Gustaf Johansen claimed to have encountered the dreaded island of R’lyeh; his account includes extraordinary descriptions of alien geometry and terrible misadventure.  Tippett’s paper attempts to reveal the effects of localised “bubbles” of curvature in spacetime that could lead to the general ignorance of the planet and orbital colonies to the existence of the city in South Pacific.

We contend that all of the credible phenomena which Johansen described may be explained as being the observable consequences of a localized bubble of spacetime curvature. Many of his most incomprehensible statements (involving the geometry of the architecture, and variability of the location of the horizon) can therefore be said to have a unified underlying cause.

Of real interest are the rumours of an expedition to be led by Cornell University and funded privately by a certain Mr Exley, of Monohak House, New England: inventor, collector,  and dealer for rewards beyond monetary gain.  What will the expedition find and will it’s exploits be published?

The relationship between the actual angular coordinate of an object, and its apparent angle. This can be used to visualize how gravitational lensing will affect the visual field for an observer on the island.
