These underwater creatures were said to devour their own brains (or the closest they had to such) and then attach themselves to rocks — thus entering a second, more vegetative, state of existence until their relatively short life span ran it's course. Not sure if it was a result of a curse, or some sort of resurrection myth. But myths are really difficult material to parse more often than not.

Totally psyched that I was able to find it! Thanks again, team. Cheer

Ascidiacea comes up only as sea squirts. I am lost. chuckle

Help!

Maybe they were named after the mythical beast I was thinking of? Idk. Couldn't have done it without you though. Many thanks!

Oh yeah that thing. So what was the reason for wanting to find it? And that's not a mythical creature, nor does it consume itself(just its tasty brain).

RE: What's the name of that mythical beast that consumes itself?
I like this creature though:

Jörmungandr
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J%C3%B6rmungandr
In Norse mythology, Jörmungandr (Old Norse: Jǫrmungandr, pronounced [ˈjɔrmuŋɡandr̥], meaning "huge monster"[1]), also known as the Midgard (World) Serpent (Old Norse: Miðgarðsormr), is a sea serpent, the middle child of the giantess Angrboða and Loki. According to the Prose Edda, Odin took Loki's three children by Angrboða — the wolf Fenrir, Hel, and Jörmungandr — and tossed Jörmungandr into the great ocean that encircles Midgard.[2] The serpent grew so large that it was able to surround the earth and grasp its own tail.[2] As a result, it received the name of the Midgard Serpent or World Serpent. When it releases its tail, Ragnarök will begin. Jörmungandr's arch-enemy is the thunder-god, Thor. It is an example of an ouroboros.

Oh, well I think that's part of the myth. Because, like, the brain is the seat of the soul or something. It was explained to me once. Very cool to find that there's an actual aquatic creature named after these beasts of lore. Perhaps it an 'As above, so below' sort of thing?

No, no, I get your point. It suppose it's more of the esoteric 'self' rather than the materialistic 'self' that they consume. Or something. Isn't that how myths work? There's always some sort of riddle or twist that isn't obvious until it all just *clicks* ...

''The only known way they can die is if they get consumed by another fish or if a disease strikes the jelly. However, there are still many mysteries surrounding the turritopsis dohrnii. While the process of reverting from its adult-phase to a polyp was observed several times, it hasn’t been observed yet in nature, only in laboratory environments.''





Changing name to first name Jelly, Jelly Fish.

Good day, my name is Necropolis
I am formed of the dead
I am the harvester of the soul meat
And I suck the lives from around my bed
My own two sons I gave them breath
And I filled their living corpses with my bile
What humanity I knew I have long forgotten
For me eternity is nothing but a short while
