Heh, first you dismiss something, and then you propose quite a similar thing? Outside the scope of a planet. My view on adaptivity as a mix of Supremacy and Harmony is a bit different. Both those affinities are mostly about altering oneself (humans). My view would be altering things from the surrounding environment against said environment if it poses a threat to the members of this adaptive culture, but not so blunt as to only use extreme physical force as the Purity cultures intend to do.
