There’s a theory called Panspermia that proposes life is floating all around the universe on distant planets, asteroids, and comets, and that life on Earth is the result of a series of asteroid strikes. A group of scientists used this theory in 2018 to explain why the octopus is just so gosh-darn different from its predecessors. Although the theory doesn’t hold much weight, it’s still valued in the scientific community for daring to be so “out there”.
