SEED factor (Superior Evolutionary Element Destined-factor) is a controversial and as yet unproven theory about the continuation of human evolution. Both Coordinators and Naturals can possess "the SEED," and those who do are thought by some to be the next stage of human development. This bears some similarity to the Newtype theory of the Universal Century, but the abilities of those with SEED factor appear to be unrelated to Newtype potential. While acceptance of SEED theory is limited, Orb engineer Erica Simmons and prominent religious leader and peace activist Reverend Malchio are known adherents of the theory.

SEED mode represents the ability for an individual with the SEED factor to enter into a state of enhanced awareness and peak physical ability. While in this state, the person (usually a mobile suit pilot, but not necessarily) demonstrates heightened reflexes and extremely quick information processing. This ability is usually triggered by extreme situations or from recalling significant traumas, often arising out of a need to protect someone else in a critical situation.

According to an interview with the producer on the official guide book, the producer claims that the SEED mode is like people having superhuman strength during an outbreak of fire and can carry extremely heavy weight out of the fire scene but can never even dream of carrying in normal daily life.

It is demonstrated visually by cutting to the image of a jewel-like seed, its color matching the color of the experiencer's eyes, dropping from the above and exploding in a shower of light just above the eyes. The physical characteristics are the shrinking of the pupil and growth of the iris. When in SEED mode, a person exceeds his or her normal physical and mental limits. Andrew Waltfeld once likened SEED mode to the berserkers of Norse legend, but this is not entirely accurate. Waltfeld mistakenly categorizes the visual effect of SEED as a berserker warrior. Waltfeld, like some viewers of the SEED shows equate an increase in the number of kills with a loss of control. However, it is more likely that the enhanced senses provided by the SEED factor allow the pilot to more easily best their opponents. For example, in Kira Yamato's battles against Waltfeld, his SEED factor resulted in instantaneous recalculations of his suit's OS and highly inventive tactics as display in Phase 18 during his battle against a squad of BuCUEs. Shinn Asuka also displays a heightened tactical ability when using his SEED as seen during his battle with Kira's Freedom.

There are two observed ways that SEED mode can be activated. When a character suddenly resolves to protect his allies or to strike down his enemies during battle, however, it also happens when a character has entered battle with a particular resolve, he may trigger SEED mode at will. A character's state of mind when he enters SEED mode appears amplified. Entering it through the first way, in response to the stress of battle,

SEED seems to be rather inconsistent.

I think of SEED as being just a state of mind and body. Kinda like being "in the zone" when playing Starcraft (see WCG players) or getting and adrenaline rush.
What I don't understand is why isn't SEED permanently activated? That isn't evolution!

We aren't talking about Newtypes here~

But, that's pretty true, I think they explained that before in SEED. I don't really think of it as a super human god mode, capable of producing Newtype-like powers. It's more like an Adrenaline Rush. That explains why Cagalli could use it, and I bet there were other naturals that can do the same thing.

....reminds me of PX mode .Don't think it's like an adrenaline rush,though,since Lacus had gone SEED mode,while not in battle.

Maybe it was from nervousness caused by seeing all the people dying.
