Chromatic Chatter - COMING SOON

Inspired by Peter Godfrey-Smith’s Other Minds: The Octopus, The Sea, and the Deep Origins of Consciousness:

“cuttlefish can control their skin closely when they want to. They can snap into camouflage, or an aggressive display, very quickly. Any color changes that do not contribute to signalling and camouflage are side effects, from an evolutionary point of view… I think these animals have a sophisticated system designed for camouflage and signalling, but one that is connected to the brain in a way that leads to all sorts of strange expressive quirks - to a kind of ongoing chromatic chatter. “
