I have a theory that the Earth is not in a goldilocks region of space where life just happens to occur, which is a bad theory with poor reasoning. My theory is that freak conditions allow life to get a foothold and then 10 or so lifeforms are able to hive mind to terra form their immediate environment (including vegetation). More life can then occur and in turn more terra forming can occur until the entire planet develops a biosphere. It works because life is a product of dark matter and all life has a dark matter soul. The dark matter is two dimensional (a single particle or photon in motion) and it radiates a two dimensional universe. Two dimensional physics can then be applied to a three dimensional universe to terra form.
But here's the catch, breeding requires mind control, so terra forming alternates with mind control. The mind control gets the mate and the regular sexual activity then switches this power to terra forming capability to create a home environment in which the children can live.
Relationships happen because of mind control with either the male controlling the mind of the female or visa versa. These are not normal relationships but rather one partner dominates the other. The relationship then makes a switch from mind control to terra forming and the couple relate less well towards each other and instead create a home for the children.
Like all powers, some people will have great ability while others have little or none. The person with great terra forming capability would also have the 100 room mansion. Thus we must control the minds of the females and this is why seduction has been developed. Perhaps some practical training might increase terra forming capability?
