"Evolution". I've finished reading my book "Other Minds" on the evolution of Cephalopods, by Peter Godfrey-Smith. This Darwinian quote is one of my favourites and is synonymous with octopuses, squids and cuttlefish. • • It's incredible to think that the most recent common ancestor of both humans and octopuses is 500 million years old. Yet, and yet, despite the vastly different evolutionary paths, both humans and octopuses have converged through developing very similarly complicated nervous systems and brains. Both have the capacity to be aware of their surroundings and, fundamentally, the ability to problem solve - what is deemed as "Conscious Intelligence". • • Alongside this intelligence is Cephalopods' ability to react and change to their faced circumstances. They hold the abilities of mimicry, skin colour regulation and (most importantly) responding to and adapting their environment to suit them (through tool use, for instance). The most prominent example of a species successfully adapting to our warming planet is the Humboldt Squid in the Eastern Pacific. Originally found off California and Mexico, they are now being seen in waters as far north as the American States of Oregon, Washington and Alaska. • • Darwin's quote is now more pertinent than ever. As the planet is rapidly altering (both on land and sea) through human-led degradation, all manners of species are being threatened like never before. The ability of Cephalopods to adapt will be tested to the extremes in the coming decades. I only hope that their success over the last half a billion years will continue to define them as synonymous with change 🐙🦑🌍 • • #evolution #darwin #change #success #responsive #cephalopod #octopus #squid #cuttlefish #humboldtsquid #conscious #consciousness #intelligence #brain #climate #climatechange #ocean #planet #earth #sustainability #green #petergodfreysmith #otherminds

🍑PEACHY SUNDAY🍑 Wist je dat de wilde perzik helemaal geen wilde plant is? Deze van oorsprong Chinese vrucht is ook gewoon een gecultiveerd ras! Ze zijn in het Engels ook wel bekend onder de bijnamen 'doughnut peach', 'belly-up peach' en 'UFO peach'🚀 Een van de bekendste soorten? De Sugar Baby💁🏼 Onze chefs pocheerden onlangs deze suikerschatjes. Hoe eet jij ze het liefst?🤤 #peach #dessert #poachedpeach #fruit #instockcooking #zerowaste #foodsurplus #foodies #voedselverspilling #foodwaste #wastedfood #rescuedfood #waste #duurzaam #duurzaamheid #sustainability #food #vscofood #instafood #cookstagram #environmentfriendly #goingzerowaste #zerowastelifestyle #glutenfree #vegan
