A group of 33 scientists from respected world institutions now believe that octopuses and their cephalopod cousins are descended from organic alien material that arrived to Earth on a comet.ARE OCTOPUSES FROM OUTER SPACE?

Octopuses are a type of cephalopod and have been discussed in detail in my book, The Nummo. This is because my research indicates that the alien water beings known as Nummo were a type of cephalopod.

The Dogon elder Ogotemmêli described the Nummo as having characteristics that relate to octopuses and other cephalopods. For instances the Nummo were invertebrates, which means they lack backbones. The Nummo also had shapeshifting abilities and were associated with chameleons.Shannon Dorey, The Master (Mistress) of Speech p. 13 With the exception of the nautilus, cephalopods have special skin cells called chromatophores that allow them to change color for purposes of camouflage. They can change colour in an instant-much faster than the vertebrate chameleon-and match their surroundings perfectly.Shannon Dorey, The Nummo p. 252

Cephalopods also have a blue blood pigment. Instead of the bright red pigment (haemoglobin) that all the vertebrates use for carrying oxygen, cephalopods use blue haemocyanin. (Although the pigment by itself is bluish, their blood is not; it's fairly clear.) This association, however, could tell us how "blue blood" came to be identified with royalty. The significance of this is that haemocyanin contains copper rather than iron. The two most important elements identified with the alien Nummo were water and copper.Shannon Dorey, The Nummo p. 252

Cephalopods are the most intelligent of the invertebrates, having well-developed senses and large brains. Cephalopods that exist today include the nautilus, the squid, the octopus, and the cuttlefish.Shannon Dorey, The Nummo p. 252

The Nummo were associated with the divine feminine and have been discussed in my books because they play a key role in human history. The Greek goddess Scylla appears on this artefact with a fishtail and a human upper body just like the Eight Nummo Ancestors. In other instances, Scylla is depicted as an octopus and is likewise associated with "the cuttlefish, which appears in Cretan works of art including the standard weight from the Royal Treasury at Cnossus, and on megalithic monuments at Carnac and elsewhere in Brittany. The cuttlefish has eight tentacles, as the sacred anemone of Pelion has eight petals, eight being the number of fertility in Mediterranean myth."Shannon Dorey, The Nummo p. 252

Scylla has similarities to other goddesses including Aphrodite, Artemis, the Gorgons and Hecate.Shannon Dorey, The Nummo p. 252 The patriarchal Greeks demonized Scylla because she was a symbol of the earlier matriarchal religion. Many positive symbols associated with the Nummo and the divine feminine were reversed by later male dominated cultures causing knowledge of the Nummo to be almost expunged from human history.Shannon Dorey, The Nummo p. 16

The scientists' research, published in the journal Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology, "ties the 'remarkable' rise of octopuses and their cephalopod cousins to the theory of panspermia." Various versions of panspermia "suggest microbes, viruses and even tiny life forms like the tardigrade might travel dormant from space rock to space rock via collisions, eventually making their way to new planets. On a habitable planet like our own, they might wake up and thrive."ARE OCTOPUSES FROM OUTER SPACE?

According to the Dogon, the Nummo came to Earth after their world was destroyed. Dogon mythology suggests that the Nummo tried to combine their DNA with the life forms they found on the planet so they could live here comfortably. According to the Dogon elder Ogotemmêli, the Nummos' experiment failed and as a result almost all life was destroyed on Earth.

I believe the Nummo were associated with ammonites, a species of cephalopods, which were wiped out by the same cataclysm that destroyed the dinosaurs. Although they looked very much like today's nautilus shells, ammonites were believed to be closely related to octopuses, squid and cuttlefish, marine creatures of the cephalopod family Nautilidae. I believe it is because of these connections that images of cuttlefish, squid and octopuses are often depicted on ancient religious artefacts.Dorey Day of the Fish pp. 120-121
