THE OCTOPUS MOVEMENT
We are building a global movement
of 1 billion nonlinear thinkers.
The Octopus Movement
We are here to drive acceptance and awareness of the awesome abilities of atypical thinkers. We call these nonlinear thinkers. People that are wired differently and have for example ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, bipolar, dyscalculia, autism, and other neurodiversity are likely to be more nonlinear in their thinking.
Check out our manifesto.
I have been in good company since the start of this movement on March 6, 2021. All the cuddo's to you who inspired me to do this. And thank you "My Octopus Teacher", what a beautoful documentary.
Since then everthing happened.
We are growing very fast.
We are the oldest and the youngest.
We are in darkness and in light.
We are the largest and the smallest.
We are creation.
