Part 2 of SWR’s “Balance of the Force” Series

The second part of Star Wars Report’s series on the balance of the Force is up for your reading pleasure:

To the Jedi, Light would be the natural order of the Force. Therefore, for the Chosen One to restore Balance to the Force, he would necessarily have to destroy the Sith, thereby banishing the Dark Side. This was precisely Obi-Wan’s lament on Mustafar, after striking down his former apprentice: “You were the Chosen One! It was said that you would destroy the Sith, not join them! Bring Balance to the Force, not leave it in darkness.” That Obi-Wan’s certainty in his understanding of the prophecy is self-contradictory evidently escaped the Jedi Master during this impassioned battle, for at the beginning of the duel he had confidently affirmed, “Only a Sith deals in absolutes.”

    Not quite. The Sith are not the dark side. Their destruction doesn’t destroy or banish the dark side. It merely ceases its domination over the light (which happened with the actions of the Sith), thus restoring the balance. The Jedi, and the light side, strive for balance. They don’t seek domination over the dark side. They strive for control. To keep it within bounds.

    One pov is that in the neatherworlds, which are temporary, the sith dreams are of the void. no matter how powerful the sith dreamer is able to grandioise the illusion, the reality is of the void, empty ghost existences. Great castles & their lands can disintegrate into nothing.

    Jedi in the neatherworlds, don’t need to dream at all, as the reality is the light. The existences are real. However the greater the Jedi type individual were, for one reason or another, does confer abilities of degree in manifestation as relates to the neatherworld realms.

    It is then not the nature of the Jedi to seek domination of, or balance with, the Sith or the dark side of the force, as neither really exist outside illusion.

    I suspect that neither the Jedi or the Sith really understood what balance in the Force really meant. For both of them, balance meant that their own personal belief regarding the Force should dominate. Neither side would even consider the existence of the other. In their own way, both the Jedi and the Sith wanted to control. I am beginning to wonder if either side ever considered the possibility that what the Force really represented was beyond their control.
