At the center of Dark Souls sits a bonfire, but its influence trails much farther, igniting everything from a Star Wars licensed game to a full-on indie game movement. Unlike differentiation which occurs at the cellular level and where cell movement does not have a critical role, morphogenesis occurs at the tissue, organ or whole organism level and cell movement does have a critical role. A creature that saves cannot be affected by this shoggoth's maddening cacophony for 24 hours. Closed. Legends also claim that, when compared to any other oozes, shoggoth have much greater wisdom. First, as previously mentioned since their cells appear to be reversible stem cells, they are inherent long-lived. Kite them to keep them grouped together and be patient. However, the value of sex to a species is that, in conjunction with mutations, it provides a means of increasing and reshuffling genetic variability within a population. In it, Lovecraft writes about it/them as massive amoeba-like creature(s) made out of iridescent black slime, with multiple eyes \"floating\" on the surface. Thus, while sex is a very successful evolutionary strategy, with most Terran organisms practicing some sort of sexual reproduction, it did establish mortality for most life on Earth. The shoggoth that appears in At the Mountains of Madness simply rolls over and crushes numerous giant penguins that are in its way as it pursues human characters. What makes the super-eukaryotic cells particularly unique compared to eukaryotic cells is that they all function as “reversible stem cells.”  Stem cells are essentially eukaryotic cells that have the potential to develop into many different types of cells in the body. Biomass is obtained by dead plant material which has solar energy locked up inside it. Shoggoths were initially used to build the cities of their masters. Thus, many of the organelles in eukaryotic cells, such as flagella, mitochondria, and chloroplasts, were once bacterial cells. This is a fairly involved, and very dangerous, process that involves a terrifying mob known as the Shoggoth. Thus, while the eukaryotic cells are considered far more complex relative to prokaryotic cells, the shoggoth cells, here called super-eukaryotic, would be far more complex relative to eukaryotic cells. Stats . Mutations that favored increased intelligence within the somatic cells of a shoggoth could have easily been passed to another individual by the briefest of physical contact, which in turn could be passed to others. However, such a mode of reproduction does not foster genetic variability, so an unfavorable turn in the local environmental conditions can have devastating impacts on the species. While there are other smaller, and possibly larger, sub-species of shoggoth, the individuals seem to be a very consistent size. Over millions of years the Elder Things created various forms of life and if they did not find them useful, they were either destroyed or discarded. Although the extent of the Elder Thing’s recorded history is very scant, there is no documentation of large-scale, uncontrolled reproduction of the shoggoths. If this is the case, then the supreme irony would be it was a large “mistake” that the Elder Ones did not destroy the Terran life forms they thought too insignificant, resulting in the “joke” being on them. Though able to "understand" the Elder Things' language, shoggoths had no real consciousness and were controlled through hypnotic suggestion. In fact, HGT is one of the primary reasons there is to this day a considerable amount of controversy in applying the traditional concept of “species” to bacteria. Biology of the Shoggoths | TENTACLII : H.P. Shoggoth was a Cardassian novelist who wrote many noted enigma tale mysteries. This global scale of HGT would only accelerate over time with increased intelligence. Shoggoth is a demon in the series. As Lovecraft noted, most life on Earth was considered a jest or mistake by the Elder Things, the superfluous by-products of experiments in bioengineering.
