We all know that we are just passing by in this reality. We know that we are born and that we shall die. And even though know we these things, all of our attention is focused on material needs and the health of our bodies; we are ignoring the fact that our souls are the ones to continue this infinite journey long after we depart from our physical lives. Learning our lessons and becoming better people as we pass by, these are the things that our souls take with us beyond this life.

The Old Ones Remember

In addition to their unparalleled powers of camouflage, octopuses are equipped with incredible powers of the mind.

Octopuses have evolved a brain and central nervous system comparable to that of vertebrates, endowing these creatures with the ability to learn through observation, and form long-term memories of their experiences. 

The remarkable mental faculties of octopuses, the most advanced among all invertebrates, has made them ideal subjects for research on neurobiology. Scientists continue to call upon the knowledge of the Old Ones study these amazing cephalopods to discover more about the processes of learning and memory.
