I am aware that Rahi and other inhabitants of the MU don't reproduce biologically. I know this topic has been discussed far and wide on the internet, but I have been looking into it and I've gotten some mixed information.
Matorans and some other Rahi are carnivorous, meaning they actively hunt and reduce the numbers of certain other Rahi, like fish or Pokawi for example. That brings me to my questions:
1) Can Rahi in any way, shape or form increase their numbers by natural means, meaning excluding someone going through the process of creating one? (Eggs, protodermis being infused with energy from the environment, being sent back from the Red Star etc)
2) If the Matoran catch fish every day, would there at one point in time be no fish left due to no more coming into existence?
3) If the answer of new Rahi being made/born is intentionally ambiguous, can I just come up with some way in my fiction work?
Questions like these are fuel for debates, but I really want to be sure, as some people said that it was neither confirmed nor denied if new Rahi can be birthed/created/whatever without a Makuta actively creating one. Thank you for your time!
