New Genious on the Block

It has just recently been documented that Octopi are rapidly reaching intellectual development equivalent to our own. Scientists noticed the octopi gesturing things to each other with their tentacles, at first it seemed very basic and uncoordinated but one scientist recognized some patterns.

 

Binary. Yes. The octopi were communicating to each other in binary. Each tentacle is bit 1 through 8 and motioning its whole body up or down from its starting position is 9 and 10. Scientists are currently trying to figure out which tentacle exactly is which bit of information but they say that it should take them a few weeks at most.

 

No one knows if this is a universal language among octopi or if it’s a special case among this clan, but whats clear to me is that we may not be at the top of the food chain for long.
