Went for a spot of otter spotting today. Anyone here ever try this?
Otters are very elusive animals so it's hard to actually get to see one in the wild. To find out whether otters exist in an area you have to rely on finding spraint, tracks or setting up camera traps.

I saw an otter today. I went out to the river near my neighborhood to read and sit by the water, and while I was out there, an otter swam by. I didn't get a particularly good look, as the otter was maybe 50 feet away from me and moving quickly, but I'm 90% sure that it was an otter. Needless to say, my whole day improved from there. I would have gotten pictures, but I usually don't bring my phone with me when I go to read by the river.

I don't just like otters because they're cute. Lots of things are cute. Otters are more than that. Things like cuteness and beauty only touch the eyes. Otters however, touch your heart. There's just something about them that I can't describe, it's as if they are life in its purest form. It's as if if you opened a dictionary to look up the definition of "life", you could just find a picture of otters.

>> No.410  

To think about and appreciate otters in terms of their appearance is a primal human behaviour that limits our ability to experience the animal at hand.
I think otters have a very special secret formula, a secret ingredient that other creatures don't have. It goes like this:
Appearance + behaviour = animal
Appearance + behaviour + O = otter
where O is the otter factor, the big secret we are trying to get behind. Finding O is the big math problem we wanna solve here.

>> No.420  

>>410

>Finding O is the big math problem we wanna solve here.

Agreed. I was working on some basic equations along these lines the other night:

O = MC^2

Where:
O = Otteriness
M = Mega
C = Cuteness

Although, as has been discussed in other threads, C could also represent Cleverness or basically any other C word other than cuck.

>> No.426  

>>420 Doesn't M stand for Mustelid

>> No.427  

>>426 ?

>> No.463  

>>426
Probably, like C, M must be a variable constant. Many Meanings applicable. Like a binary system alternates between 1 and 0, the various factors contributing to O (C & M) must fluctuate between states (this is how the otter generates both raw power and its unique charisma). Except, as we have demonstrated in the case of 'C', with an Otter it is not merely a binary system - not merely 'cute' or 'clever', but rather many modes are contained within each otter including cuddly and cheeky. Like the otter itself, the "constants" are constantly morphing to remain in peak harmonics with the river system.

Let's put all otter physics debate into one thread

>> No.436  

Otter strechiness
Otter stretchiness is the ability of an otter to stretch. A conventional otter can stretch a fair bit, and this is usually done for relaxation purposes. However, in the field of topology an otter may be stretched to extreme levels, such that it ends up resembling a donut or coffee mug. This leads us back to the discussion on oddly-shaped otters.
Do not attempt this at home because the otter will cease to function when stretched to such levels.

>> No.437  

The "O" factor

Finding and defining the mysterious "O" factor is the main task of this otter mysticism.

>> No.438  

The otter paradox
The otter paradox is the unexpected relationship between the otter's size and its energy. It seems that instead of decreasing with size, the otter's power simply becomes bundled into a smaller area.

>> No.439  

Otter acoustics
Otter acoustics can refer to the way cute otter squeaks travel through the air and into the ears of other otters to alert them to a situation.
It can also refer to the reception of waves underwater by way of the otter's vibrissae, which helps it track its prey as a form of "fish-dar".

This is all more like otter metaphysics. Maybe we can give this newly discovered science a new name, Lutrology (the study of otters).

You say than an otter in an otter space is just a 3-dimensional otter occupying a 3-dimensional otter space, but what would be the case of an n+1-otter occupying an n-otter space? I would argue that would be a more exact definition of a hyperotter, as opposed to simply an n+1-otter, as an n+1-otter occupying an n+1-otterspace would simply be a standard otter of standard otter capabilities to an n+1-otterspace.

>> No.460  

>>454

>the case of an n+1-otter occupying an n-otter space

I'm pretty sure that's what happened. It would explain a lot. I think that's why the otter gets headaches when it gets stretchy. There just isnt enough otter space yet to accommodate it. It has to generate new otter space at the +1 frequnsee as it stretches, or things get too crunchy.

>> No.466  

>>432
I like this topic. Is there an odd shape that would benefit an otter in our world? A spherical otter would have an easier time in barren landscape and possibly in rivers with high currents, with downsides like a harder times to navigate in lush areas, but is there a shape that will just benefit it with no downsides in our world?

Is the current otter shape the best otter shape in our world after all?

>Otters are perfectly shaped just as they are.

In any dimension or realm, the Otter will be conformed to the Perfect Shape for that Sphere of Reality. In our 3D world, the 3D Otter represents the perfect fluidity of God-in-Motion as river-dwelling apex carnivore/Olympic cuddler.
Howeevr, if viewed in quantum space, the Otter will indeed be a very different shape: it will conform itself into the most perfect expression of God-in-Motion for that dimension.
Thus, the Otter is always perfectly adapted for maximum beuaty according to its local environment.

Animals have to be smart to be able to do stupid things. Only intelligent animals can even come up with stupid things to do. That's why otters, raccoons, etc. are so funny, because they're intelligent. Stupid animals can only sleep, eat and do normal things which is why they're less funny. That's my theory at least. What do you think?
