Well, a Jedi increases their physical abilities through the Force, so they can take more than normal.

Alright, I'll get back to you on that tomorrow.

What about the Saber used as a mind focus to better channel the force?
To the first question, likely so. To the second question, I'm not sure what you mean. That the lightsaber acts as a conduit, an enhancement so to speak? I believe The Essential Guide to the Force denies that claim. Let me get back to you on that.

But your point of deflecting blaster shots back at the shooter is a very good one, indeed.
I find the Lightwhip interesting, personally.

Glad to help.
