As per new reports the marine animal—octopus, is an alien that has evolved on another planet before they arrived on Earth as frozen eggs carried in comets.
The new report names as the “Cause of Cambrian Explosion—Terrestrial or Cosmic?” is co-authored by thirty-three scientists was published in the journal—Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology.
The report indicates that the octopuses are “aliens” that have evolved on another planet before they made it to Earth millions of years ago as “cryopreserved” eggs through the “panspermia” process.

According to the reports of Yahoo News, the paper suggests that the life was seeded on the planet Earth by life-bearing comets, as soon as it became possible for life forms to survive, and octopuses came in the exact same way nearly two hundred and seventy million years back. The concept of alien life extending like seeds via space is referred to as the “panspermia”.
Scientists have used the DNA proofs claiming that in 2015, octopus indicated that they are completely different from other animals. They contain thirty-three thousand protein coding genes, which are greater than in human. They also have distinctive features like camera like eyes, jet-propulsion, 3 hearts, flexibility and the ability to regenerate severed limbs.
The paper reads that the possibility that the cryopreserved Squid or octopus eggs, came in icy bodies many hundred million years back should not be discarded as that would be a parsimonious cosmic explanation for the Octopus’s sudden appearance on Earth circa some two hundred and seventy million years back.
Many other experts have criticized the paper. One Virologist—Karin Moelling said that it is a fun concept, however it could not be taken seriously, as per the report of BuzzFeed News.
