    Seems this theory has scientific research investigating the possibility...

    New Research on the Theory that Octopuses are Aliens

    Cause of Cambrian Explosion - Terrestrial or Cosmic?

    The controversial theory that mysterious and biologically complex octopus is so unique that it had to come from another planet just got a scientific paper backing it.
    OK, “should not be discounted” is not exactly a bet-your-life savings-on-it endorsement, but it’s still a big deal. In a paper entitled “Cause of Cambrian Explosion – Terrestrial or Cosmic?” published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal, 33 scientists researching the cause of the Cambrian Explosion – the mysterious point in Earth’s history when single-cell organisms were suddenly overshadowed by complex animals – linked the panspermia or cosmic cause to the equally mysterious and sudden appearance of octopuses.

    “Cryopreserved and matrix protected” sounds like a Superman origin story with creatures sent by another civilization to populate the galaxy, but the paper leans more towards the idea that Earth received a bombardment of comets and asteroids that could have been carrying organisms that somehow managed to survive the cold, the radiation and the long trip.

    Only a complex species could devise a way to do this … an advanced species with a really big brain like … an octopus?

    Yes, that seems to be the flying octopus in the panspermian ointment of this particular paper. It singles out octopuses as an (or possibly the only) advanced species that sent preserved eggs during the same period that it speculates asteroids and comets were involuntarily bringing other hardy cells and viruses en masse to ignite the Cambrian Explosion some 540 million years ago. “Speculates” because there’s no physical proof yet of the real cause of the Cambrian Explosion – so panspermia, climate change, evolution and others are in play.

    If they’re an advanced species, do they know about this?

    Octopuses are a special and highly unusual species that can edit their own RNA and slow down their evolution – a process that science can’t explain yet. It’s interesting that many scientists think the idea of intentional panspermia as their origin on Earth “should not be discounted.”

    Does this mean octopuses are aliens?

    There were multi-celled organisms long before the Cambrian Explosion......but then since water came from the cosmos then so did all life. It was just created here.

    i have always wondered about the origin of certain animals
    another oodball is the dolphin, it almost looks like the result of some genetical experimentation of doubtfull ethics of some long forgotten ancient civilization

    Spiders look pretty alien as well. Were they all brought here when we were ? Octopii have the brain power equivalent or above that of a dog. 300 species of Octpoda as well.

    I have been thinking octopuses are aliens since I was a kid. After I became a scuba diver, I still think it. Thay are cunning, intelligent, magical in their ability to blend in to their surroundings... incredible to observe in the wild.
    Mostly nocturnal.
    Awesome creatures. I don't eat them.

    They look more alien than any other creature. One thing is for certain - they (calamari-squid) taste good.

    I heard this story on C2C years ago. The lake was sealed off from the outside for 13-34 million years.

    Holy crap, I'm just 4 minutes into it...If the oxygen levels are 10 times more in that deep lake then it could support larger life forms...The thing that got me is the claim the creature shape-shifted into a human form, they though it was a diver coming towards them at first...until it got closer...

    That could be the hole in the story. There would be absolutely no light in the lake making shapeshifting impractical.

    The divers and crew would have lights and cameras, they would not dive into that water without lighting to see what's there...They claim to see the creature, they must have shined lights upon it and have lighting around them...

    There's a famous story from the Brighton Aquarium in England 100 years ago that an octopus there got out of its tank at night when no one was watching, went to the tank next door and ate one of the lumpfish and went back to his own tank and was sitting there the next morning. The aquarium lost several lumpfish before they figured out who was responsible.

    Are octopuses smart?

    Thats clever and funny.:laugh3: He returned to his own tank and looked totally innocent :Whistle:

    So they are claiming they went scuba diving in Lake Vostok?......:Whistle:......for 5 days. Or did I misunderstand that.

    By the way octopus are at least 300 million years old.

    If you're in tune with the universe, you can figure out which animal is from which planet.76% of all animals past and present are from other planets.

    The octopus might have evolved, evolved to a very unique human of some type...I wouldn't doubt it...just like a lot of others did.
