These curious little creatures travel the cosmic void imprisoned in crusted Geodes which plummet Earthwards embedding themselves at journeys end. Therein they exist in gaseous form, dormant until the unwitting act of breaking the Geode ensures their release from their igneous prison: only upon contact with light do they change into solid form.
So repelled are they by their shapelessness in captivity that they are incensed into an immediate and relentless quest to introduce order from chaos and harmony from discord. This may also explain their love of pure geometrical shapes.
It is evident upon reflection that through the ages man has always been guided by the Geomites' example and although not always using their influence towards perfection - we know we can an should
In prehistory, the Geomites and Footers, early relatives, argued continually over the form that should be taken by water. The Geomites insisted that they should be able to sculpt it into rigid geometrical shapes while the Footers were emphatic that it must be random, flowing and formless in the end both had their way and steam was created by the heat of the argument!
In a petulent frenzy, the Footers set out to undo all the harmony created by the Geomites. Before the time of man, vibrant coloured frenzies (collective noun) of Green, Blue and Red Footers throbbed across the plains of the Earth, trampling all in their wake. The first victims were the Dinosaurs who were completely stamped out within years of the Footer's arrival on Earth. Even fossils aren't safe from their mischief as they unearth them with their huge digging feet such carelessness that most fossils found today are damaged, chipped or incomplete.
These days, if trouble is afoot or chaos abounds, maybe its time to track down the Footers.
