The Father: "A family in balance. The light and the dark. Day with night. Destruction embraced by creation. [...] Too much dark or light would be the undoing of life as you understand it."
The Father: "As the balance of [Mortis] crumbles, so shall war escalate in your galaxy. As my Son has descended into the dark side, so have the Sith gained strength."
As for the scale in which The Family operates...
The Father: "You cannot imagine what pain it is to have such love for your children, and realize that they could tear the very fabric of our universe."
The Father: "Do not underestimate my Son. He will seek your ship to escape our isolation, and sow terror through the universe."

Mortis was a nexus point --a terminus of sorts-- for the entirety of the force...
Kenobi: "What is this place [Mortis]..?"
Qui-Gon(Ghost): "Unlike any other, it is a conduit through which the entire force of the universe flows."
And The Ones served as universal anchorites for the dark and light sides of the force respectively...
The Father: "My children and I can manipulate the force like no other. Therefore, it was necessary to withdraw from the temporal world and live here as anchorites."
That's why it was so important to keep BOTH sides balanced on Mortis. If the Son(dark) or Daughter(light) gained too much power/influence/control, it skewed the force-flow of the entire material universe. That's why the Sith became more powerful after the Son went full-evil and inadvertently killed the Daughter--the scales on Mortis tipped heavily in favor of the dark side, and the Sith were amped as a result. This was extremely dangerous because, as The Father said, "too much dark or light would be the undoing of life as you understand it."

Silly SW fans going ape sh!t on new characters. They can't handle all this confusion with new characters. At least everyone in the PT was connected to something we knew. All the new Jedi had at least Yoda to guide them, the clones... wow, they are all little Boba Fetts... phew...
Two characters share superficial physical characteristics. They must be the same person! Think about it, have we even seen Vader and Snoke in the same room before? Vader never said he couldn't fake his moral redemption and then come back as a malevolent ghost.
That author clearly had a deadline to meet.
