    Probably, that’s more of a topic for the next trilogy (X, XI, XII).
    (I'm sorry if a similar thread has already been posted.)


    “When there is balance in the force, then there is peace.”
    At least this is what the Jedi were believing in. Furthermore they thought you could achieve this balance by destroying the Sith, respectively the dark side. But what if they were wrong? Maybe you have to destroy the force itself.

    You may be wondering now: How would this be possible?
    Undoubtedly it wouldn't be enough to kill all Force-Users in the galaxy. Especially because of the fact that the force isn’t inheritable. Additionally, it would be quite unethical to kill innocent force sensitive people.

    In the EU, there are locations where the force is unusually strong. This location is a so called “Force Nexus”. Maybe these places control the force altogether. If you destroy all of them, the force would vanish from the universe. Therefore no force-sensitives could use the force anymore.

    => No force, no imbalance.

    Just a thought.

    This topic has definitely been a thing in Star Wars before, and a very interesting one at that. You could check this out: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Wound_in_the_Force
    You are right in that the Force will never reach true balance, no matter how hard any Force-using faction attempts to realise that goal. I guess that's because the Force is the Force, and any categorisations (light/gray/dark side) Force users apply to it are used for their convenience and as support to pass on their beliefs.
    Darth Traya planned to do exactly what you mentioned, attempt to 'kill' the Force via Force wounds such as the Exile and Malachor V
    I'm not sure that destroying these Force nexus* would do anything close to ending the Force, as we see the Force has so many layers and levels that it's impossible to predict, like in the TCW Mortis arc. I'm absolutely sure, though, that destroying such places can cause major Force anomalies- like, again, Malachor.


    *From a quick Google search, I determined that the plural form of "nexus" is "nexus". Cool.
