Who can see with its skin, has blue blood and brains in its hands? Octopus presents a curious case of intelligence that is very different from ours. I am fascinated to learn more about these wonderful creatures as part of my literary research. So I decided to get a pet octopus!
About me
I have written and published two novels: Neišsipildymas and Stasys Šaltoka: Vieneri Metai which is translated into English under the title Cold East. Two years ago me and Justas Janauskas came up with the idea for online community which later turned into Qoorio.

While the arrival of our octopus Opcionas (that is his name 😂🐙) I read a lot about what is good environment for her/him. It is really nice that more and more research is done on these mysterious creatures, but still a long way to go.

will he/she also be' available for the meetings? ☺️ Or maybe there will be' a separate account to track his/her life?🤪 It feels like Opcionas is becoming the soul animal of this community ❣ I have never seen one in my life and would really love to meet when he or she will be available 😅

Gabija Grušaitė on OctopusAuthor of Stasys Šaltoka, Co-Founder of Qoorio & VietaSome time ago
Octopus is the only species with super high intelligence (by human standards) known to us that does not engage in any social activities. Primates and dolphins and dogs and so many others like to form social bonds, but octopus is solitary animal. Even in mating rituals a social distance is kept and often the female will snack on her lover afterwards. Imagine, your whole body is brain, you can taste the world and see through eyes and skin. Everything is a vivid muted underwater dream. What internal life does an octopus lead? I imagine them being true poets, connoisseurs of internal landscapes contemplating the beauty and the absurdity of life. "Book of Disquiet" by Fernando Pessoa could have been written by an octopus, quietly observing marine life in a safe shelter of its den.

Apparently octopuses change color when they dream. Quite fascinating

Have you heard anything about SLS? Did you know that Falcon 9 is 70m height and more than 400 Starlink satellites already launched? I strongly believe that we are on the verge of new age of space exploration. Although, I just quite recently become a real space and SpaceX enthusiast

What’s it like to be on major prime time TV show?
I was a contestant in Dances On Ice. The cameras, celebs, pain, fear, ice, injury, betrayal, friendship, fame, glory - it’s all there, under intense pressure of live tv. - do contestants get paid? - are the winners known in advance? - are the drama and scandals real? - what you need to be on TV?
