How can humans en- trust their acquired information to inanimate objects like paper or stone? It is well known that these objects are subject to the second law of thermodynamics, according to which they must decompose and be forgotten. In his abyss, where everything is mired in sedimentation and where everything is submerged in fluid, the impermanence and unreliability of all inanimate materials in fact become more apparent than on the relatively dead surface of the continents, where bleached bones can lie around for centuries. And yet, the laughable error that has led to human art may not only be laughed at insofar as Vampyroteuthis is capable of laughing but also deserves to be properly considered.
