Octopuses are from Outer-Space.
A bold and surprising paper authored by over 30 scientists has argued that squid & octopuses may have arrived on our planets as frozen eggs within comets and meteorites. The document was published in the Journal Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology, a popular peer review publication.
The theory of Panspermia, alien life spreading like seeds throughout the universe is not a recent one and somewhat based on the concept of many animals being related to one another . We see examples every day. Frogs, apes, and monkeys have two legs and arms like humans. Sheep, goats and horses too resemble our basic DNA structure. However, there are exceptions.
The genome sequence of Octopuses DNA appears to be rather unique. The report cites the complexity of over 33,000 protein codes which exceeds those of modern man. A number of Cephalopods, includes squids but the Octopus in particular is a very unusual sea creature. It has a large brain, a complex nervous system, multiple eyes, camouflage and the ability to change color. Octopuses exhibit advanced protein re-coding that puzzles scientists. This is not clearly understood; is it a jump or great leap forward in molecular genetics strategy ? Perhaps if the creatures genes were functioning when they arrived on earth by icy comets it would explain the evolutionary gap .
The paper suggests that as far back as 4.1 billion years ago life bearing comets delivered space resistant bacteria, viruses and other living organisms allowing them to flourish here on the earth. The result was a considerable amount of genetic diversity including the emergence of mankind.
The discovery of the many exo-planets is another offer of proof. A number of these planets have been discovered in was is considered the “Goldilocks” or habitable zone. Essentially stating condition s appear favorable for life. The number of earth like planets is estimated in the Milky Way alone is one hundred billion. The early stages of our solar system was plagued by corruptions, and collisions which included the creation of our own moon. The seas and water in general could have been first brought to the earth by collisions of comets and asteroids.
Astronomers Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe have been searching the cosmos for decades discovering data that became part of the authors startling conclusions. Hoyle was a pioneer in the pansperia theory and researched comets and meteorite fragments as part of his work. He believed , as the authors; that life here on earth may have originated elsewhere in the universe and carried here by extraterrestrial means.
Evidence of comparison studies of interstellar dust and Halley’s Comet and extinction rates of bacterial show common graphs. Jets of organic molecules and oxygen were found in comet 67 P/C-G the authors add details into their presentation.
It concludes bacteria and microorganisms deep frozen with comets could remain viable for an indefinite periods of time. Bacteria and viruses embedded within grains of rock or even ice within comets and asteroids would be shielded from radiation of space, and possibly survive for millions of years. Modern research aboard the Space Shuttle supports this theory.
Eventually – the bacteria and viruses arriving from space could have found hosts to infest on the earth. The report suggests that a causal chain of new viruses arriving from space could potentially drive evolution on earth and be rationally understood within the realm of today’s science.
