I would say this is a logical guess following your argument, BUT as we do throw guesses around some odd 100 to 200 years doesn't make anything 'ancient'. Could this be a reference to something more 'Ancient' and the first validation of old EU lore? The Ghost of Exar-Kun, that is the ancient evil!?

I don't foresee him coming back from the dead.

Episode 7-9 are based on Georges story treatments...theres 0 chance this is happening.

Sidious thought he was dead. Not that he actually is dead.

As I said in another thread, we mustn't forget that Plagueis discovered how to prevent others from dying and even managed to reverse his own aging process. The book tells us outright that he had discovered the secret of immortality, and when Sidious attacks him the guy just sits there and barely puts up a fight, almost as if he wanted to die.

I think their is plenty room for Plagueis say keeping his psyche intact in midichlorian form - research we know he explored from his diary in Book of Sith and somehow managed to recreate himself 30 years after ROTJ.

The only issue is making the concept simply enough for audiences to understand, and as soon as the word "midichlorian" is mentioned the Prequel bashers will be in uproar.
