Coming to these Forums was a bit like running away, for me.
It's the cold hard truth, I guess. I came to this place because I wanted to be someone I'm not.
Someone who had the answers... Someone who could move unseen. Someone with power, yet plied it insubstantially...
Perhaps the most significant thing George Lucas did in creating 'Star Wars' was to fictionalize the Tao - to spark a universe where we can talk about the Force in objective terms and show it in direct action.
I think that's why we're here, right? To give an accurate accounting of The Way. That Order exists within Chaos, and the opposite is also true. I like to believe that (IRL) The Force is just as real, just as prevalent, just as omnipotent, as it is here. Even the Darkness, The Evil, is Real. Micromanaged, you might say... in patterns & ways you might never see. That in the end, it all... fits beautifully.
