Researchers applied Moores law to the variety of genes over time. They came up with a graph that extends back in time before the formation of the Earth.

Haven't read it, but is this for cephalopods' dna?

Everything between plankton, mammals and humans.

Godzilla vs Octobeast was a good flick, back in the day. NASA's planning to make a high-budget sequel, according to those very same scientists!

Extraterrestrial or not I believe cephalopods are in their own way...alien.

Cuttlefish are fascinating, however another challenger has entered the ring...the mimic octopus.



It makes you wonder how intelligent life might appear or act like.

Why? Because they share similar DNA and RNA sequencing with other creatures just like them.
Indeed. It seems that octopus diverged from squids about 270 million years ago. Well after the Cambrian explosion and hardly a "sudden" appearance.


Using a relaxed molecular clock, we estimate that the octopus and squid lineages diverged ∼270 Mya, emphasizing the deep evolutionary history of coleoid cephalopods8,30

Possible that their evolution was spurred by an extraterrestrial virus? Sure, why not (would space virii find a friendly host in an earthly organism)? Any evidence of that happening? Not really.

Octopus eggs from the sky? Nah. Something would have eaten them.

lol, it seems...let us just throw some more wild speculation out there...hey 270 million years is a nice tidy number.

The way science looks at these things it will be easily another 2,000 years before any actual progress is made.

Theories of evolution in most forms is as useless and unsatisfying as anything...or maybe these nutters just have not evolved yet to realize fantasizing about evolution looks equal to fairies in the sky.


Time to end these charades.

a reply to: reject>> Or maybe life found on Mars came from Earth when we were hit by an asteroid and it was transported there. Or early life was seeded on both planets and Mars had that catastrophic meteor collision which stripped it of most of its atmosphere and severely damaged its magnetic shield.

Any creature that can camouflage itself automatically and change shape to "blend in" sounds pretty alien to me.


Yeah, nothing screams "alien" like being perfectly adapted to the environment you evolved in. I guess Chameleons are aliens too?

The article is kind of click bait. Being affected by an ancient virus or possibility ET virus doesn't make it an alien. Tons of speculation involved in this one.

Even if it was affected in the ancient past by bacteria that somehow came through space to earth, it's still safe to eat. It contains nutrients we need to survive.

Moore's law being applied to biological life? I'm sorry but that is grasping at straws there. Moore's law is about transistors and the rate is actually slowing down now. Thats a bit of a stretch there.
