News from the Natural World: The psychoanalysis of an Octopus has been abandoned after discovering each arm has a mind of its own. Psychoanalysis is a set of psychological theories. It is combined with therapeutic techniques that have their origin in the work and theories of Sigmund Frog. Sigmund Frog was one of the leading lights of the animal psychology world and took the whole academic sphere by surprise with his groundbreaking theories. The core of his psychoanalysis was the belief that all animals possess unconscious thoughts, feelings, desires, and memories. As the years have passed countless psychologists have sought to uncover the secrets of the animal mind through this technique. One human psychologist recently set out to test the technique on an unlikely candidate, an Common Octopus. Common Octopus is one of the most astonishing creatures on earth. In addition, it is easily a contender for one of natures weirdest oddities. It has three hearts, and eight limbs with 200 suckers that can feel, taste and smell its surroundings. One of the Common Octopus, named Owen, was up for a spot of psychoanalysis. He was brave and fearless. It was his time to be an example to all Octopus. He would put his species on the map. So he agreed to have sessions with the human psychologist. But he’d have some fun whilst he was at it.
