Physicist Explains Cthulhu’s “Non-Euclidean Geometry”

An anonymous reader writes “Mathematician Benjamin K. Tippett has written a fascinating and deadpan paper (Pdf) giving insights into Cthulhu. A ‘Bubble’ of warped Space-Time makes alarmingly consistent sense of the dead God’s cyclopean city under the sea. From the paper: ‘We calculate the type of matter which would be required to generate such exotic spacetime curvature. Unfortunately, we determine that the required matter is quite unphysical, and possess a nature which is entirely alien to all of the experiences of human science. Indeed, any civilization with mastery over such matter would be able to construct warp drives, cloaking devices, and other exotic geometries required to conveniently travel through the cosmos.’”
