"...horrible elder race of half polypous, utterly alien entities... They were only partly material and had the power of aerial motion, despite the absence of wings ... a monstrous plasticity and ... temporary lapses of visibility...  whistling noises and colossal footprints made up of five circular toe marks seemed also to be associated with them."

"...the basis of the fear was a horrible elder race of half-polypous, utterly alien entities which had come through space from immeasurably distant universes and had dominated the earth and three other solar planets about 600 million years ago."


- H.P. Lovecraft, The Shadow Out Of Time

Odd that they are depicted with eyes, as they have NO sight (they're not called the Blind Ones for nothing) and when a Great Race being is asked to describe them, they evade the subject. Having written their FUTURE history, they know when these blind monsters WILL destroy them and have prepared.

Theses are not eyes.
