Incredible Ocean Floor Crop Circles Created by Little Pufferfish
Two nights ago we watched one of our Life Story dvds, which are a series of animal life stories delving into the mysteries and wonder of the natural world narrated by David Attenborough.
We’ve see some pretty incredible things and this one about the intelligence of an amazing little pufferfish that creates elaborate and perfectly designed sacred mandalas at the bottom of the ocean is definitely worth sharing.
The clip below is from the episode we watched, sharing just how this tiny, nondescript fish creates these fantastic designs in the sand as part of an elaborate mating ritual by delicately traversing back and forth in rotating criss-cross patterns resulting in perfect, textured sand sculptures that mirror the intelligence behind crop circles.
These kaleidoscope-like sculptures both help attract mates and serve as protection when the fish pair together and the female lays eggs.
The implications of consciousness like this and so many other miraculous mysteries in the natural world of superintelligence – animals, plants, and Earth herself – continues to demonstrate that our limiting ideas of having dominion over this planet and thinking that we can do with nature as we please, rather than live in harmony and mutual learning with her and her children, are just that – limited and falsely based.
Many believe fish have no intelligence and see them lower on the animal scale in terms of justifying choices in treatment and use of them.
This little pufferfish, creating masterpieces that rival anything a human could make, is reckoning these beliefs for us to reconsider the implications of our limited perspectives.
