"It was dark, pitch black, almost painful to watch. More a shape than a volume, it looked like a hole, cut in the very fabric of space itself. And it was moving, growing and absorbing new arms and other appendices as it shifted between walking, crawling and oozing and god knows what else !

Sometimes, the shapes were almost animal : rat, dog, penguin... As if it collectively remembered its previous victims and tried to imitate them.

And it was cold, so cold..."

Danforth glimpsed what lay BEYOND mount Kadath.

Hinted at in that famous novella.

(Earth is accursed and belongs to the Great Old Ones. Man is transient, ephemeral. There were peoples before man and there will be peoples AFTER man, )

The Old Race flourishes yet on other worlds, and the shoggoths there remain docile and obientategbbehwhewjw (gave up TRYING to get the word right !). There is a wrongness to the earth.
