    Default Is The Octopus Really An Alien Species?

    Don't Freak Out, But Scientists Think Octopuses 'might Be Aliens' After DNA Study

    "Analysis of 12 different tissues revealed hundreds of octopus-specific genes found in no other animal, many of them highly active in structures such as the brain, skin and suckers."

    They are perhaps not alien in terms of originating from another planet, but from an alternate Earth dimension.

    Octopuses aren't aliens. They just seem alien because they bear no resemblance to anything on land. But they're not the only alienlike creatures in the ocean. Have you seen some of the creepy-ass crap that lives down there? Google "sea angels" or "vampire squid" or "giant isopod". You'll see what I mean.

    (The last two might give you nightmares.)

    This would make sense based on my experiences as a young king eating octopus off the beach of Mykonos.

    it was open
    -the end"




    Olemn slammed his hammer and from the sparks on the metal of his anvil came the spheres of the heavens.

    Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.

    I liked this story, made me think that Lovecraft was onto something with the Cthulu mythos.
