    As someone who walked away from religion ( all religion ) I can understand why Luke would become sour and basically a curmudgeon. He lost his Father because the Jedi POV had no room for someone like him. He was twisted by Sidious' hatred and became a tool... a pitbull turned vicious through constant negative reinforcement. Anakin WAS the Chosen One and if he'd been allowed to approach the Force from the middle, he would have protected it all. But the Jedi's dogmatic views crushed that hope and the Sith doctrine consumed him. Both failed him. Luke knows this now. Watching the same happen to Ben because of his blind faith in the Jedi way made him doubt himself and the history he has learned only crushed what was left. His was a life wasted in service of a warped religion. You'd be pissed off and apathetic too.

    Seems reasonable to me. Light cannot exist without dark. Balance. Yin/yang.

    The fifth book to the left says “Mnuebs”, I think. It could just be a different script or writing style of Aurebesh. Like comparing cursive to printed English.

    Disney seriously trashed starwars. Well luke was hard set on the jedi teachings, then moved more into the gray jedi colum. He really did have a more rigid demeanor during the new "episodes"

  • Edwin van Ooijen

    Or as Voldemort would say "There is no Light or Dark, only Power and those too weak to use it."
    The power in this case is the Force and those too weak to use it are both the Jedi and Sith. The Jedi are blinded by the Light and see everything that is even the slightest bit of grey, as dark and (in their eyes) thus evil. The Sith are too easely corrupted by the Dark side there are a few exception and even they are corrupted in the end.
    Revan (in Legends) is even now seen as the Jedi/Sith that had mastered both sides of the Force and yet at the time of his death he was corrupted by his hatered for the Sith Emperor and caused his own soul to split. The other person (that I know of) is his Glorious Majesty, Immortal Master and Protector of Zakuul: Emperor Valkorion. In the SWTOR MMORPG (when the Outlander is Force sencitive) Valkorion says that the Outlander must learn both sides of the Force.

    At 8:26 , the Jedi's code is teaching humans to behave like machines: "Machine has no emotions, no ignorance, no passion, no chaos (it follows programming codes) and there is no death. No wonder it didn't work, because it is trying to apply another species thinking to humans. It's like trying to preach human's moral standards to cockroaches.

    The backstory of the Jedi & Sith is certainly an interesting twist over the movies alone. The Jedi beliefs in no emotion, no passion, etc., is something one doesn't normally think too deeply about. The splitting off of factions does make a kind of 'human' sense, though. If one considers human history, this seems almost expected. it also reminds me of examples in other created universes. In Star Trek, we see the conflict between pure logic (Spock), and passion & intuition (Kirk). We can see a similar idea in Dune, where the Bene Gesserit shun the idea of love, until Darwi Odrade decides it's actually something her Sisterhood. She even teaches her protege Murbella, who feels this most poignantly in her love for Duncan Idaho. I'm even reminded of the movie The Dark Crystal, where the two factions are eventually reunited at the end of the hero's quest. However, I'd be quite surprised if they actually take this tack with Star Wars IX. They don't seem to have thought it out that far, which is really a shame. tavi.

    The Jedi philosophy would probably be more stable if it was firmly rooted in a monotheistic religion of God and a nemesis personifying both sides of the force. It's a deep and sturdy framework for the psyche to properly accommodate concepts of the light/dark sides. Jedi get so obsessed with the force in a scientifically spiritual way, viewing certain mortals as godlike, which actually makes them more vulnerable to their gift over time. A transcendental deity would ease the spiritual pressure of having so much power. You don't have to use riddles and paradoxes to reinforce a fearless mentality; once you have faith in an eternal Father who controls the force with perfect wisdom and benevolence, you can feel a natural fearlessness in your soul with limited thought.
    "May the force be with you."
    ..."Wait. What side of it? Has anyone ever questioned our open-ended mantra? Wouldn't it be deeper and more precise if we said 'may God be with you'? The force is unrealized potential that meanders between good and evil-- but God is the creator and culmination of the force, guided by an all-knowing, all-loving intent, moving consistently in the direction of everything good and true."
    "Huh... Chill out man. You know what the mantra means."

    I'd be all for a grey jedi organization. However, the bastardization of Luke shouldn't have happened.
    The now non canon (I thinks thats the name) Dark Empire comic was much better than this trash. Luke taking down a Walker solo with just the force, the emperor surviving via darkside mind transfer to his own personal clones and Luke turning to the darkside for a short while.
    Disney ruined it.
    Furthermore, the lack of backstories kill it too. You could fit three movies between 6 and 7. 7 should have been longer and full of flashbacks.

    I expected a whistle-blowing episode about the Jedi abducting babies from their families "for the common good." Maybe their fear of Force sensitive beings outside of their order actually brought some balance to their philosophy.

    Interesting idea, but I don't think Johnson bothered to think anything through this thoroughly. He just wanted to throw live grenades around and see how much damage he could do to a sci-fi canon with a huge cult following. Of course Luke will have to be brought back as a force ghost (what other choice is there?) and may get- one hopes he will get- a substantial part in the plot and substantial screen time. How that plot will proceed is anyone's guess, as Johnson effectively left no act three not requiring a significant time jump. If anyone can guess beforehand even a general outline of such a plot, and be anywhere in the ballpark with it, then three cheers and a tiger for them. My suspicion is that one or more deus ex machinae will need to be thrown into the mix at various points to attempt to save this. I rather wish they'd hire Timothy Zahn to write the screenplay, as he is by far the best writer of Star Wars novels to come down the pike. But I well realize that hope to be in vain.

    So basically in Canon lore Luke was a one trick pony, who had forfillled his destiny, however when it come to something bigger than his destiny he folded and quit.
    This is disappointing if true, for if it wasn't for his father turning to the dark side Luke was destined to do so himself. Seeing how he messed up with the teachings of Kylo-Ren it seems that luke wasn't able to handle such a big endeavor to restart the jedi order; the task alone was too big for him to handle, thus he went into solitude away from every one and every thing basking at his failure losing his nephew to the darkside. I just don't understand why the writers in Disney couldn't handle such a simple storyline this leaves casual fans in the dark with knowledge only true starwars fans could understand. This is why the last jedi couldn't and never will hold a candle to the original trilogy nor the prequals. It's sad actually...

    Sigh...more "balance" crap.
    In nature, balance is tentative.
    There were always extremes, and there will always be extremes.
    Big "Bang" started it all, lotsa chaos in between, some measure of "balance" between said chaos, and then it will all end in a big "Freeze".
    Ya'll people obsessed with the so called "Balance" are just stalling against the inevitable, and ultimately nature doesnt give a !@# what you think.
    Attrition decides all outcomes, and the victor is decided by whichever or whomever is the strongest, dogma not withstanding.

    4:30 anyone with any knowledge knows it was the Sith that originally discovered the force. It was "after that" that the Jedi discovered the force was maliable. That it had both light, and dark sides, and usage. The Jedi even admit to it sighting the first Sith world as being those who first discovered, and used the force. It is the "Disneyfied" version of events that denies this. Even the cartoon series notes the birth place of knowledge of the force,though the planet was wrong.
    "Sithose" was the origin of the discovery of the force. It's people we're referred to as Sith. The Sith religion was based upon Sithose being the homeworld of the discovery of the force, and was the first world to be destroyed by those craving, and mastering dark side power to be destroyed. It was so decimated by dark side users it remained unlivable even thousands of years later.
    The world Yoda visits in the cartoon series is actually a second world discovered by those who escaped Sithose before it's destruction. It was on that world the sith people decided to limit their use of the force so as that world would not suffer the same rate as Sithose. It was their that Darth Bain made the rule of two. He, his apprentice, and the military under his command wiped out the lower level users after the main cities and temples had been built because of uprisings that continually threatened the existence of the Sith people, and their new world.
    Unlike Sithose, Darth Bain had complete control of this new world, and even though in the end the sith people, and the entire military had to be destroyed. The world was still habitable and the Sith "religion", and the rule of two remained.
    The Jedi weren't even a practice, or religion until about a thousand years later when it was discovered the force also had a light side. Before that the force was considered cosmic dark magic....and completely feared.

    It would seem that the existentialism of either doctrine & the search for it's purest form by it's practitioners is the very act of the force manifesting balance within itself for the purpose of a greater synthesis of itself. In a sense a kind of Mitosis or Meiosis on a grand scale...

    The gray force wielders are nothing new. It is skimmed over in some of the animated series. It is not as popular because no one talks about it. It is easier to divide the world into good and evil. Your point of view is good and those who do not agree with you are evil. I was very disappointed that The Last Jedi did not pursue this idea of a gray Jedi. Maybe episode IX. Though Disney seems hellbent in keeping the Jedi's dark secret and prattle along as Disney does. I am very sure that it is very difficult for Rian Johnson and J.J. Abrams to direct for Disney. Most big decisions are made by corporate committee. I get why these directors do it. If it is a hit the director gets all the kudos. Disney has very few failures. The opposite is also true. If a Disney film does less than expected, the committee does not get blamed. The director gets slammed. There is no gray area with Disney. Sound familiar? We won't see The Gray Jedi mentioned because when a movie is simple more people will go to see it. Cha-ching!! Money makes Disney go 'round. At the expense of a good story.

    I will admit right now that my perspective of the Disney star wars trilogy is very negative. I hated the force awakens, yes I said "hated" and I despise the last jedi but one thing I always enjoyed was the ability to speculate about any sci fi, fantasy or horror stories that have more going on behind the scenes. I mention all this because I often get the feeling that it is ok for us to speculate about the extended universe from star wars legends but with Disney star wars it seems as though those who are in charge are all to quick to correct any upbeat speculation that a die hard fan would have had. By this I mean that theorizing about the subject almost seems pointless thanks to how lucasfilm now handles the story

    That’s what I hated about the new series. The idea that just because there is a few bad things in an organization it needs to be destroyed. Like Luke has the ability to fix the problems of the past with a new generation and what does he do? He fucks up wallows in his own self pity and decides to destroy what was supposed to be his responsibility and his legacy. He burned the meal so he decides to light the kitchen on fire

    Hmm, good video and I believe you are correct. I feel like this means Luke broke the prophecy, he was meant to bring balance to the force (and he could have done that by allowing the Jedi to die out) but Instead allowed the unbalanced Jedi to continue so the force remains out of balance. I guess the prophecy was just a possible outcome but we ended up with the darkest timeline. You let us all down Luke, should have just signed up to the Imperial Academy early like you planned instead of getting tangled up with cultists and terrorists.

  • R Jonboy
    R Jonboy Month ago

    Your theory fits in with Lucas' original "samauri warrior journey" concept. The yin/yang principle is not a dichotomy like good/evil but rather two sides of the same energy: literally the giving and the recieving. To be alive is to take in and give out: stop one and life ends. You can't have one without the other. Life is made up of light and dark, order and chaos, and when you get too much of one life becomes unmanageable. Without darkness light becomes blinding and without light darkness also makes one blind.
    I thought that was why the Jedi order fell. They were blind to Palpatine and he was blind to Vader who threw him to his death. It's all from Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey.
