Previously, I discussed how Octopus destroyed my theory that social groupings led to intelligence. I think my theory was partially correct in that once a species is Octopus level intelligent, social groups are the key to becoming more intelligent. However, one must ask how an animal gets to intelligence level: Octopus. I have two options to set before you. The first is that we evolved intelligence to outwit predators and the second is that we evolved intelligence to find good food to eat. I’ll put it to a vote. If you feel the need to explain your vote, I highly encourage you to do so!
