Cthulhu Mythos – CC-“33” Crimson & Clover Kermes vermilio – Earth’s Crimson Altar

Cthulhu Mythos – CC-“33” Crimson & Clover Kermes vermilio – Earth’s Crimson Altar

“The Dreams in the Witch House” is a horror short story by American writer H. P. Lovecraft, part of the Cthulhu Mythos cycle. It was written in January/February 1932 and first published in the July 1933 issue of Weird Tales.


The Cycles of Syne, Coming and Going, Over and Over – until ….. (TJJJ aka Tommy James and Joan Jett serving justice cold as ice.) — “Best Served Cold” reality check. When something isn’t as delightful or pseudo-positive as you want.

“Revenge is a dish best served cold.” it also means one can have well-planned revenge and drive them mad with fear as a bonus. Contrast Restrained Revenge, where the wronged party only takes a lesser, symbolic, revenge.

Revenge comes in many flavors and manifestations. From mild to extreme. As all of our constructs and outcomes appear. All misunderstood outcomes are mis-interpretations of interplay between the two primal forces of Nature – Love and Fear. Opposing forces – NOT in conflict.

What’s “33”, Crimson, Clover, Tommy James and HP got going? Seems all the stories we ‘entertain’ are unravelling the stories and solutions to US. The solution to ‘seeing’ the real and unreal for what they truly are and the relation to our approach toward Destiny through Density.

“Crimson and Clover” was recorded in late 1968 in about 5 hours. Tommy James played most of the instruments, while Mike Vale played bass and Peter Lucia Jr. played drums. The song contains a tremolo effect on the guitar, set so that it vibrated in time with the song’s rhythm. Near the end of the recording, the band had an idea of utilizing the tremolo effect with vocals. To achieve this, the voice microphone was plugged into an Ampeg guitar amplifier with tremolo turned on, and the output from the amplifier was recorded while James sang “Crimson and clover, over and over”.

Crimson & Clover “33”-“CC” and ‘See’ Rim Sun Lover

Tommy James and his band made Crimson and Clover in 1968. He said he caught the idea in the air. That same year “The Crimson Cult” with Boris Karloff appeared in theaters. The trailer is down below. The story following, is a version of “The Crimson Cult”. All go back to HP Lovecraft.

(And the stories always go back, back, back – HP had his mentors and inspirationalists as much as anyone does) A top visionary and prolific/futurist writer from the early 20th century. Boris Karloff’s most famous role of Frankenstein ties to his 1919 early career and back to the author of Frankenstein, Mary Shelly, back to 1818 – and how was she inspired?

The Dreams in the Witch House” is a horror short story by American writer H. P. Lovecraft, part of the Cthulhu Mythos cycle. It was written in January/February 1932 and first published in the July 1933 issue of Weird Tales.

HP would later say in regards to critics panning his story: “What the public considers ‘weirdness’ in drama is rather pitiful or absurd… They are all the same – flat, hackneyed, synthetic, essentially atmosphereless jumbles of conventional shrieks and mutterings, and superficial mechanical situations.” He was pissed.

Several prominent motifs—including the geometry and curvature of space and using pure mathematics to gain a deeper understanding of the nature of the universe—are covered in both Lovecraft’s story and de Sitter’s lecture. The idea of using higher dimensions of non-Euclidean space as short cuts through normal space can be traced to A. S. Eddington’s The Nature of the Physical World which Lovecraft alludes to having read.

The television adaptation significantly truncates the plot of Lovecraft’s 1933 short story. It also sets the story in contemporary times, updating small details while remaining relatively faithful to the original plot. For example, whereas in the Lovecraft story the protagonist is a student of quantum mechanics, in the television adaption he studies string theory. The TV adaptation features the rat-like creature with a human face, Brown Jenkin, from Lovecraft’s original tale, and also the witch Keziah Mason. In a nod to Lovecraft’s original inspiration for Miskatonic University, the protagonist of the television adaptation wears a Miskatonic University T-shirt featuring a design based on the seal of Brown University.

Librarian: What are you doing here? This is a restricted area. The rare book room is always locked. How did you get in?

Walter Gilman: I don’t know.

Librarian: How did you get this book? No one has permission to see the Necronomicon. No one! Who let you in?

Walter Gilman: Please… I…

Masurewicz: Are you having the dreams?

Walter Gilman: They are not dreams. They’re real.

The TV Show above is from an earlier Boris Karloff movie-show called The Crimson Cult. Text from the trailer in 1968:

“Many strange and sinister dreams are experienced but are they dreams or are they the signs of the curse of the crimson altar? How were these wild parties and an antique dealer investigating witchcraft connected with this house of horrifying secrets?

History of Crimson and Clovers

Crimson is produced using the dried bodies of a scale insectKermes, which were gathered commercially in Mediterranean countries, where they live on the kermes oak, and sold throughout Europe. The ‘worm’ is taken from the Kermes tree and sacrificed to the need for crimsoning things. Kermes is from Sanskrit krmi-ja a compound meaning “(red dye) produced by a worm.” The organisms are insect worms and the sacrifice is done to pregnant females to acquire the blushing and gushing red extricated from the life juice of the organism.

The dye is prepared from the dried bodies of pregnant females, which alive resemble small roundish grains about the size of peas and cling immobile to the tree on which they live.

So as you see, crimson, goes way back.


The four-leaf clover is a rare variation of the common three-leaf clover. According to traditional sayings, such clovers bring good luck, though it is not clear when or how this idea began. The ratio of four- to three-leaved clovers is said to be 1 in 10,000 or 1 in 5,000. To be in clover “live luxuriously” is 1710, “clover being extremely delicious and fattening to cattle”

Cloves are masculine in nature and aligned with the planet Jupiter and the element of fire. Used in magick to attract good luck and prosperity, to keep good friends close, and to help stop malicious gossip.
