Physics of Cthulhu

Dr. Benjamin Tippett, a physicist at the University of New Brunswick, looks at the short story, 'The Call of Cthulhu' from the viewpoint of Science! In what he calls his 'unified theory of Cthulhu' with his tongue firmly in his cheek.

He examines the 'eyewitness accounts' as written in 'The Call of Cthulhu' from a physics point of view. He then states:
In proving the Johansen wasn’t crazy I accidentally figure out that cthulhu is probably real, responsible for the island… and I also figure out what he’s doing down there. Of course, as a brave man of science, I can’t go and admit that Cthulhu exists…
