Prime Posted February 3, 2006 Share Posted February 3, 2006 no the films don't but this is an EU forumTouche. But surely you will agree that the films and related comments by the creator are relevant even when discussing the EU? you said the dark side is a corruption of the force which is an opinion of the jediIt is not an "opinion" of the Jedi, they just recognize the fact that the dark side is a corruption of the force. For example the ROTJ novelization explains that Sith lightning is a dark side power and a corruption of the Force, as in not natural. Palpatine even aludes to the fact that the dark side is unnatural (i.e. a corruption) in ROTS. the force itself never laid down guide lines on how it was to be used like i saidThe Force itself hasn't, since it can't talk. But the creator has. Lucas has explained that Force lightning in fact requires the use of the dark side, and as of ROTJ lightning is completely the domain of the Sith (in fact, until Dooku used it on Anakin, the Jedi did not know of it [AOTC novelization]). We also know that use of the dark side requires emotions such as anger, hate, and aggression. We also know that use of these feelings go against the Jedi code. A Jedi who would continue to use such emotions and go against the Code would cease to be a Jedi. We also have been told that continued use of such emotions and the dark side will lead to that person's undoing, as we have seen time and again. before the jedi use the terms light and dark as a simple understanding when really there are no sidesNot according to the creator of Star Wars. And I think he has the final say. Besides, if there are no sides, how can it be out of balance? so you agree, like i said before, the sides are equal and its down to experience and skill.We've already shown that this is not the case. In terms of actual abilities to has been explicitly stated that the dark side is stronger. In other words, if two otherwise identical beings used opposite sides of the Force, the one using the dark side would be stronger. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
