“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance.

The octopus seems to have more neural-nucleic mass (sometimes called thoughts, memories, and decisions), than other creatures I can think of...

edit:speaking of molecular biology, it seems I've lost enough sleep lately  to deplete myself of electryltes. Just another... rhetorical question?
