IF: Drifting


(Click image to enlarge)

No more drifting away from its main course due to strong currents and unseen circumstances?

Instead of trusting and relying on its inborn GPS, unbeatable motor-skill coordination and execellent instints, this octopus has resorted to compass, gas tank, setting up sign-post & drawing map.

By defying its very own nature, it has drifted further away from its own highest life purpose.
