"In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming..." - English translation of Aklo verse

This article is written on a topic within the Greater Cthulhu Mythos based on information from works in the Mythos. By default, all information is to be assumed to derive from the Lovecraft Myth Cycle unless otherwise marked.

Sentient species may be defined in various ways (see [Sentience], but in general refers to a species capable of agency, self-awareness, abstract cognition, and the capacity for culture.

This should be differentiable from non-sentient species by this capacity for abstraction and the creation of material and/or other cultural contructions (i.e. language, architecture, technology).

The line between sentience and non-sentience may be a topic of debate on certain species, and should be a discussion in the Talk section of the article.
