Re: 10 Tails information not matching up for me.
This is how I see the explanation:
1. The ten tail is the creator or progenitor
The way I understand is that everything required to create is within the ten-tails - that is he is composed of water, earth, etc. For example, when Naruto got Kyuubi chakra, wood started to grow trees. This mean that maybe ten tail chakra can cause water to flow, or trees to grow, etc.
2. Ten tails as destructor
Maybe the constituent of ten tail can be causes of creation, but his rage can also destroy. In addition, we can understand that it power can be used to destroy the planet as well.
So basically, there is no contradiction. Even in real life, for those who believe in God, God is the creator of everything, but he can also annihilate everything. Human are the creation of God, and they can also create using the power that they got from him.
