The place that the octopus evolved the bottom of the sea is so alien to us that it might as well be another planet. Some scientists, like Dominic Sivitilli, think its the closest we can get to understanding how extraterrestrials might think. The octopis sophisticated nervous systems and sensitive suckers allow it to do incredible things like escape aquariums but Sivitilli is learning how each of an octopus' eight arms might actually have a mind of its own. We dont know yet if alien life exists, but if they do, they might think like an octopus.
