Logical Paradox - Self contradicting statements.
The Sith archives were quiet. The men and women who studied there were true scholars. Coremi could have walked in with the entire Jedi order and as long as she was not there to steal artifacts or disturb their studies these Sith would not have cared. She knelt to collect a neglected holocron from a low shelf and took it to a private room to study. Activating the device, she greeted a now familiar image of an elaborately dressed ancient Sith.
“Greetings, Sith. I am Kel’eth Ur.”
“Hello again,” Coremi replied nodding at the tiny figure.
“Shall we continue our lesson?” He smiled serenely once his programming recognized her.
“It beats trying on Stylish clothing.”
“As you say. Very well, as you may remember the Sith feed on palpable dread but fear is a lie, passion is a lie. Fear gives temporary power, and passion is easily manipulated. Real strength in the Force comes when one is no longer afraid. And one can purge fear when one stops grasping – after power, after things, after life itself – and allows the Force to guide him. There is only the Force.”
“How do you stop grasping for power when the purpose of stopping is to grasp power?”
The image went silent and stared at her only flickering occasionally.
“Hello?” she poked the ancient machine.
No further sound was emitted. Finally she shut off the device, hoping no one else had planned to use it and wondered if there was a way to reset the contraption. “I think I broke it.” She muttered to herself as she put it away.
This statement is false.
I loved the change to LS and the fact that Baras was unprepared for it despite the fact that he could slap aside her DS attacks. Though in the real fight I thought it was funny the SW is kicking his face in and he's all Monty Python black knight about it.
