    While I think the Midichlorian aspect of the Prequels were really unnecessary, I don't really dislike or like their addition to our understanding of the Force. I'm really indifferent to it.

    Anakin being the product of a 'virgin' birth was the worst thing for me.

    Isn't there two types of "the force", living and cosmic? Midiclorians are probably part of the living force while the cosmic force is the mystical power we're most familiar with.
    I still think it's kind of dumb though. Tpm had a theme having to do with symbiotic relationships, and midiclorians were a part of that theme.

    I remember waaaay back in ANH when Obi Wan described the Force as an energy field created by life.
    Then, on reading TLJ's novelisation, it described that Rey chose not to kill Kylo on being the first to awaken because 'it wasn't the will of the Force'.
    Now it seems to have morphed into a godlike being. Weird.

    The whole idea of destiny throughout the saga has to do with the will of the force. There is no luck or coincidences. That would be an example of the cosmic force.

    Everything is at first a Godlike Being Will... until our science explains it. :D

    The Jedi way, and I'm sorry but I have never liked it much since the PT.
    It makes me think of Bob Dylan...'you don't count the dead when God's on your side.'

    (Personally I thought the midi-chlorians was a slight misfire, but) perhaps we could better discuss things we like and how awesome this franchise is rather than recycle all the 22 year old arguments? Let's rise above all this stuff and refrain from wallow in the hate, and aim for greatness instead, yeah? :D
