This is right in line with this thread. Check out this video Shape-shifting Octopus!. Now follow me here.

My question is:

Were they implying there at the end that it wasn't the octopus that was changing its form, it was the octopus that was changing the way we perceive its form?

What a bizarre creature.


Good question!

I think they said after studying it frame by frame, they came to the conclusion we should be able to see it but we can't?

Even though they are colored blind, I think they were the first to develop complex eyes? I think they suggested that the octopus knows something a little more to objective reality, at least visually, than we do. It's goal isn't to simple blend in, but to take away any information that would reach the potential predator's eyes.

Other animals are good at camouflage, but it looks like the octopus is the master of disguise.

ETA: It's colored blind and takes it's cues from pattern recognition, but it somehow knows the colors around it to match perfectly right?, so perhaps that is what they meant at the end? It's picking up some kind of information someway, or distorting it... I'm at a loss for words on how to explain...


Is the cuttlefish tapping into the consciousness of the observer and react to suit it? Another astounding feat in the ocean that is along these lines is how a shark detects blood miles away. It's not as though the sharks are getting a sample of the blood itself rather they are receiving information. This that is reminiscent of how sub-atomic particles behave quantum mechanically. Particles are potentially anywhere and everywhere when unobserved then presto magic present when observed then instantly back to the other end of the universe when unobserved.

I figured this would be food for thought for folks on the oct282011 quest.

Particles are anywhere and everywhere.

Since they are that means that you can summon something at will? Make things appear out of thin air. Assuming that human have that power.

They can come together when being observed but can they come together by wanting to observe them?

I can't help but be alarmed. I've been watching USGS Daily for over 15 yrs and you don't see EQ in these places typically.


On 9/1 we had an earthquake with the epicenter located directly under us, Newhall CA 4.3

CO and Tx both had EQ when they don't normally have them. VA and now, JUST now Alambama?

It's from a fault line that runs all the way from there up to NY.
Not that unusual, we get small ones every now and then that most people don't even feel or know about.

Ah yes I understand that. What I'm saying is in the past two weeks many quakes have occurred in places they don't normally occur. Get my drift?

Hehehe, he is actually meaning there is an update on the oct site. The "Who am I (not who is Open)" now reads what Patefacio just posted.


PS These kind of questions are too hard for me to answer. A bit too cerebral for me.

I get your continental/tectonic drift.
Dutch paper warned to get ready for a 7. Where and when, sources or further info were not provided but after that 4.6 we had here last week, it wouldn't surprise me.

11:11 Failed treatment to date.

It's just a number, it is what binds them,

This sequence of numbers work for they are the seed. This sequence works for it is the plant. This sequence works for it is the fruit of the plant. Thus, it will continue to spiral out and in. It will still be the seed yet it will evolve in its design to ever expand.

Weather man picks the fruit or it drops on the ground, it will expand. It is the nature of its self.

Spent the day vacillating between now and taking dips into the past. Deep past. Past life stuff. 1600s. That was when the 9999 phone calls kept ringing.

Does reading this thread count as "now" or what? Does allowing my imagination to enjoy its frequent flights of fancy count as "now"? Does watching videos count as now?

I am skeptical of this whole "now" concept. It's nice convenient .... platitude. As humans with human brains, there is no "now" because our brains play it all back on a delay. So for example when I was engaged with my coworkers or my family today, that sure felt like "now" because I wasn't thinking about past or present I was tuned into them. When I made dinner I was tuned into making dinner and not making lists in my head of things I needed to do later. But to me that's not NOW.

No, NOW is different.

The octopus in that video lives in the true NOW. I can get there from time to time but then it's like being on acid (though I've never touched the stuff) and it's hard to operate in real life.

Can anyone relate?

Which movie? Sorry to be dense. The Nines, or Pi? I'd like to watch them both when I get a chance to devote my full attention (busy work week so this thread is nice break between fires I'm putting out, but I don't have nice big block of time for a movie much less the novel I really want to finish). What you wrote above caught my attention because it deeply deeply resonates. So tell me which movie, as I will bump it to the head of my free time list.

Thanks!
