….to Earth by meteors?.

"Octopuses are aliens. That's the claim being made by a team of 33 researchers published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.

They are not referring to aliens in a metaphorical sense, but literal aliens from outer space.

Since the paper was released on Sunday, a trickle of news coverage has turned into a torrent, with increasingly alarming headlines about octopuses and their extra-terrestrial origins…."

The Cambrian explosion is a thing because we have a number of wonderful fossil sites (burgess shale) that preserves soft bodied animals. Most life is never fossilized and we only have hard body (creatures with shells). So we have Know idea what happen before the explosion or after because we have limited fossils. So Take the ancient aliens stuff and sell it to the History channel.

Could it be?

My personal theory about octopuses is that they are the descendants of aliens who visited Earth and liked it and just stayed. They learned from the dolphins, an obviously enlightened species, to abandon their technology and ambition and just enjoy life. They haven't quite figured out how to jump out of the water like dolphins, but they do love bombing around underwater with their water jet things.

only an estimated 1% of Dinosaurs have been discovered
''However, scientists do say that we have only found 1% of all the species that have existed(ing). 99% still remains. These percentage predictions are based on extrapolations from the observed/existing species.'' but my budgie still loves a cuttlefish …

Yeah, that's gonna be a tough one to explain when the OctoEmpire Mother Ship shows up asking about the fate of their crashed exploration vessel…

Unlikely, given the best movie argument against Veliskovsky –

"No, look, the whole flies being dropped on Earth from Venus coming in from Jupiter – How could they share so much DNA with Earth life, let alone biochemistry?" – from DEMON SPAWN
