A lot of this is actually really compelling... thanks for posting the links.

But where is all the mass coming from? What about the water?
I started to think about the link between water and consciousness, that maybe that was a clue. But then on other planets and moons the 'new' material is not water; it's solid (and not just ice). Hmm...
Another line of thought is perhaps the mechanisms at work in the earth include a conversion of energy to matter. That would seem to indicate that the earth has a higher intelligence than man (duh), since we haven't really figured out how to do this part yet with our little toys and alien technology. (Or maybe we have, and I just don't know about it.)
In any case, definite food for thought...
