Sorry for my poor English. Me and google translator are doing our best to translate my question properly.
My story evolve around sentient planets. Let’s imagine every Planet in my universe is sentient. With every planet that comes to existence, there are living beings that arise with them. They have some kind of connection with the planet. They feel when the planet is in pain. They feel the planets feelings. When the Planet dies, they also die.
The Story takes place on Earth. Nature, Humanity and Creatures are pretty much like in our reality. Like in our reality, humanity destroys nature and pollutes the environment. The living beings, that are older than any other being on earth, feel that earth is in deep pain due to the actions of humanity. They feel that the planet is dying.
Why can´t they just wipe out humanity from the surface of the planet?
For my story, it is crucial, that they can´t harm any living being on the surface of the planet. For example, they could manipulate aircraft parts that leads to a plane crash and kills every human on board. However, they could not harm humans directly or wipe out the entire species, even if they had the power to do so.
