I loved the symbolism, too. The Outsider is such an intriguing character. He's a Lovecraftian one, too. He's not a mindless cosmic horror (although The Void is all-consuming), but he certainly is fascinated by mortals and likes to "experiment" with them.
Yes, that's right. ...But I'd prefer dealing with The Outsider instead of the Crawling Chaos himself
He reminds me of The Elder Things www.yog-sothoth.com/wiki/index… in their curiosity & fascination with Earth. But The Outsider uses a humanoid form- although he's probably some kind of "Leviathan whale".
