I'd rather not see plants and animals appear before intelligents creatures.
I mean, when we get closer to the point of opening will animals be the first

interestings - servants, something which gives me more power etc. Though
I can understand animals and plants as source of spiritual energy....

Just to point out, trees and other plants have also spirits. What happened

...This sounds familiar...
