There is noth­ing that can­not be ulti­mately expli­cated & under­stood via the use of sci­en­tific analy­sis. It is the lim­i­ta­tions of our brains — so large-seeming in those cozy alien can­nis­ters, but so minute swim­ming in this vast black uni­verse — that all but require an author to explore the super­nat­ural. It’s supremely ironic that the nat­ural world is too enor­mous and too fear­ful for the human mind to prop­erly cor­re­late all its con­tents & so we appeal to the sup­pos­edly inex­plic­a­ble super­nat­ural world to expli­cate the ulti­mately appre­hend­able nat­ural world.

Remarkable interview with H. P. Lovecraft, conducted in handwriting on a single postcard, which Nick Mamatas accidentally discovered in a used book.
Complement with Lovecraft’s timeless advice to young writers.
