Beta is part of a Lovecraftian horror which will destroy all once all the parts have been assembled.Beta is a glowing green object that produces orange light. Beta is an amorphous constantly changing blob. Beta is made out of no element native to our universe and yet is "organic". Beta requires human suffering to remain in this universe. Beta is steadily driving those humans in close proximity to it insane. Beta is mutating its victims on a subcellular level. Lovecraftian horror, here we come.
