Scientists Looked At Octopus DNA And Discovered They Are Basically 'Aliens'

Sci-fi writer H.P. Lovecraft's work often revolved around the Cthulhu Mythos — a fictional universe surrounding an ancient race of octopus-like aliens that ruled the Earth. These imposing dudes were called the "Elder Ones."

Well, scientists are a little worried that the Elder Ones might have awoken from their slumber, since a recent study of octopus DNA has left them baffled by the very existence of these tentacled creatures. It seems that octopus DNA is so complex that it is unlike the genetic material of any other organism on the planet. This has left them wondering if these mollusks are not, in fact, aliens.

Humans may not be the most complicated species on the planet.

Recently, scientists have put together a new map of the octopus genome that contains 33,000 protein-coding genes. That's far more than we humans have.

The DNA also contains numerous "jumping genes."

They've started thinking of them as aliens, since octopus tissues contain genes that aren't found in any other animal on Earth.

Their brains are considered to be among the most highly functioning in the animal kingdom. But why is the octopus so unique?

According to Dr. Clifton Ragsdale of the University of Chicago, "The late British zoologist Martin Wells said the octopus is an alien. In this sense, then, our paper describes the first sequenced genome from an alien."

Good luck sleeping tonight.

We already knew that octopuses looked like aliens with their eight tentacles, three hearts, and no skeleton. But this is the first time scientists can definitively say that these things may, in fact, be alien creatures.
