Octopower

Posted on March 21, 2012 in Reality As Such

This is so bizarre.One of the (vast number of) things that I find strange about octopi (octopuses, octopodes, whatever) is that it seems to me that animals with tremendous intelligences tend to live a long time. I suppose that’s some kind of anthropomorphization. Still, the idea that something with that much brain power having 5 years or so as the absolute cap of their existence seems a little depressing. On the other hand, maybe I should be relieved.
