Alright now here is another Analysis thread of mine, now I know its not another Starfighter thread which I was planning to do. But I wanted to explain something about The Force here, not in the way Aurbere is doing with different Force Powers but to just give a better general understanding of what its capable of doing...so lets begin here.
"Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force."
―Darth Vader to Admiral Conan Antonio Motti, referring to the Death Star
Known as the Way in ancient times, the force was viewed in many different aspects, these included but are not limited to the light side, the dark side, the Unifying Force, and the Living Force. Though the Force was in all living things, its power could only be harnessed by beings called 'force sensitives' which were found by a high count of midi-clorians which gave the being's Force potential.
Manifestations of the Force which were mental based abilities tapped through the person's willpower and could take all forms. These included telepathy, psychokinesis, and enhanced physical and metaphysical preception. The Force could be used to bend the will of weak-minded beings and guide an adept's body. Users who were very good at using the Force could cease merely reacting to their surroundings and actually predict events in the very near future, such as the next blow in a duel. Guidance like this enabled Luke Skywalker to launch a proton torpedo into an extremely difficult target on the Death Star in the Battle of Yavin.
In addition to enhancing their own skills, Force users could manipulate the world around them such as Sith using force lighting and choke while Jedi used it to heal and protect. Manipulating the Force entailed significant risks, however. When a person used the Force beyond their body's ability to sustain it, the individual could suffer physical damage, accelerated aging, or in an extreme case, certain death by burning their own body cells from the inside out. Palpatine, and Dorsk 81 are prime examples of excessive Force usage and the consequences.
In short folks, the Force can do pretty much whatever the hell it wants. The only time it stops anyone, is if the person is unable to sustain the ability that they are using which could cause damage to their bodies. You guys remember what Yoda said?
"Size matters not."
Well he wasn't kidding, as evident that he was able to lift up Luke's X-wing. Dorsk 81 proved this further, shoving 17 Imperial Star Destroyers out of a star system with a Force Push, 17 STAR DESTROYERS!. He died doing it sure, but it proves that size doesn't mean jack **** to the Force.
The Force doesn't care about how big something is, if the person is trained well enough they could do pretty much anything with the Force. Lets look back to Vader's quote up top.
Hes right, look at what it takes for the Death Star to destroy a planet. It takes all this technology, and yet the Force could kill anyone with a mere thought as evident by Vader choking Motti with nothing more then a simple hand gesture.
So there you have the thread folks, just wanted to get it out of the way seeing as all these posts about Galen being OP and Force this and Force that has been popping up lately.
"There is one lesson you've yet to learn. How to become one with the Force!"
