why reptilians?

so i read up the hollow earth reptilian shape shifters, and my first thoughts were that it was rubbish, but then i thought, well if were going to speculate wildly about something completely preposterous, we might as well go about it in a methodical manner.

so i thought about the physiology of these mythical humanoids, how could a reptile have super human strength and intelligence? so first thing is that they cannot be cold blooded, because big smart brains require lots of oxygen and energy, something that a cold blooded animal just cannot provide, so they had to come from the same line as birds, therapoda. next up, physical size and shape, this is something i just cant figure out. if they evolved as bipeds, surely there would some evidence of that in the fossil record right? but there isnt, so that remains a mystery. then their shape shifting abilities, well chameleons can change color, so theres that, albeit a much more sophisticated version of it.

nope thats still total garbage, however there is a solution.

octopuses for instance are smarter than reptiles. they also have hemocyanin in their blood instead of hemoglobin which carries oxygen more efficiently at lower temperatures.

more importantly they can change not only the color of their skin, but also the texture, and do it much more rapidly and to a greater degree of complexity than a chameleon, by far.

isnt that awesome?

next up, they live in the ocean, which is still a pretty mysterious place comparatively, and its teeming with life, so its a much better home for a secret society of hyper intelligent monster overlords in my honest opinion.

and being invertebrates, and lacking a solid shell, these hypothetical cephalopods wouldnt leave much if any evidence of their evolution, or continued existence in the form of fossilized remains.

so in conclusion, if theres any intelligent creatures on the planet, that we dont know about, i'd put my money on mollusk.

Cuttlefish are my favourite creatures in the animal kingdom by far. Their intelligence is off the scale too! Science still doesn't know half of what these little guys are capable of.

I think people assume that the 'beings' in the hollow earth theory are reptilians simply because many cultures throughout history regard reptile like beings as 'gods' and supreme, elite overlords.

Outta box... Before the Dinosaurs evolved here which may have had some influences on inner Earth there were Giant insects which may have evolved as well.. They were the giant arthropods of the Carboniferous. Now factor them gaining awarness ect. as the later reptiles and mammals did and there may be some large insects located somewhere. To go even further outta box it or they may have channelling or telepathic connections.

Be well
