  Great Old One - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A Great Old One is a type of fictional deity in the Cthulhu Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft.
The Great Old Ones are currently imprisoned—a few beneath the sea, some inside the Earth, and still others in distant planetary systems (and beyond).
While the first theory, which proposes that the Great Old Ones were forcibly imprisoned by the Elder Gods, is delineated by the writings of August Derleth, the second theory (relating to "cosmic cycles") is debatable but is favored by Harms.

Those Old Ones were gone now, inside the earth and under the sea; but their dead bodies had told their secrets in dreams to the first men, who formed a cult which had never died.
They all lay in stone houses in Their great city of R'lyeh, preserved by the spells of mighty Cthulhu for a glorious surrection when the stars and the earth might once more be ready for Them.
The great stone city R'lyeh, with its monoliths and sepulchres, had sunk beneath the waves; and the deep waters, full of the one primal mystery through which not even thought can pass, had cut off the spectral intercourse.

 The Old One
Her teeth were old and worn and she had lost one on the left side two years ago.
As she chewed, her mind was filled with scenes of past joys - the great herds, the thunder of their feet as they moved, the deep rumbles of their voices, the youngsters gamboling amongst their legs, the sweet hot joy of mating, the suck of a young one at her breasts.
She carried all the knowledge of her race within her; their ancient wanderings in the west, the great passage of the narrows where the ice came nearly down to the sea, the peopling of this new world a thousand generations ago.

 Geras (Old Age), Greek Mythology Link.
Because of Old Age the limbs cannot be moved or lifted, and that is why it is often deserted and despised by the young, who in turn are opposed by Old Age in many respects, especially in their desires of lovers.
Because Old Age is known for being deserted, Marpessa 1 chose Idas 2 (the man who killed Castor 1, one of the DIOSCURI) before Apollo as husband; for she feared that the god would abandon her in her Old Age.
Old Age is not seldom revered through giving birth to children, because they are thought to take care and be the healers of Old Age, repaying all anxious cares in rearing them.

 The Call of Cthulhu by H. P. Lovecraft   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Johansen's address, I discovered, lay in the Old Town of King Harold Haardrada, which kept alive the name of Oslo during all the centuries that the greater city masqueraded as "Christiana." I made the brief trip by taxicab, and knocked with palpitant heart at the door of a neat and ancient building with plastered front.
There lay great Cthulhu and his hordes, hidden in green slimy vaults and sending out at last, after cycles incalculable, the thoughts that spread fear to the dreams of the sensitive and called imperiously to the faithfull to come on a pilgrimage of liberation and restoration.
It was, Johansen said, like a great barn-door; and they all felt that it was a door because of the ornate lintel, threshold, and jambs around it, though they could not decide whether it lay flat like a trap-door or slantwise like an outside cellar-door.

The great affairs of life are not performed by physical strength, or activity, or nimbleness of body, but by deliberation, character, expression of opinion.
Thereupon the old poet is said to have read to the judges the play he had on hand and had just composed - the Oedipus Coloneus - and to have asked them whether they thought that the work of a man of weak intellect.
Now, old age is, as it were, the playing out of the drama, the full fatigue of which we should shun, especially when we also feel that we have had more than enough of it.

As the power of the Great Old Ones rises towards the Sky, the summits of the towers burst into flame and all is dissolved in an effulgence of light, an all-consuming ecstasy of liberation.
The main thrust of this is to portray the citadel of the Great Old Ones as a place that is totally alien and loathsome to human understanding, but inevitably, he is obliged to draw upon allusions which have their roots-within the cultural matrices of the human psyche, in order to achieve his aim.
