well, this is a nice paradox indeed. but.. what if it was meant for him to do right this? what if it wasnÂ´t him determining it? the force may work beyong time and space. His actions determined it, but the Force could well have led him to do what he did. Certainly it seemed that he only wanted to know what had happened and then, when the opportunity arose, to tell her mother where to follow him and the other young Jedi. what if Jacen didnÂ´t save raynar and co, but rather saw a vision of the past through the eyes of another being? like Quinlan Vos can, when touching things or people. Certainly what he did had to be related to VosÂ´ power, but as Raynar says he saw Jacen, I think that he really affected the past. Changed the past may be a wrong term, as it had already happened! (I really donÂ´t like time travel stories much because of these paradoxes...) But, in most cases, visions show something we fear, fears coming reality. or dreams and hopes (of balance) getting true, like with the choosen one prophecy. if we see something we fear, we should stop fearing. That was what Yoda said to Anakin, but to most of people, Anakin included, it isnÂ´t enough. There are few people capable of that. In the SW, Jacen has become one of them. hey are alike in many things, like Palpatine said in episode 3. sith and jedi both use it for what they want / see as good. the only difference is that one side is egoistic and the other altruistic. though, I still think, maybe there are some sith with noble goals that just use the wrong methods. I think that there must have been a lot of Sith that have started with good intentions - I think those stories that make the Sith believe themselves evil are not very convincing - and have tried to do good, but who have been corrupted by the dark side - whether internal or external - and ended eventually pretty much as the stereotypical Sith. peace and order, yes, but the imperial way? etc. sith and jedi, both, have to learn some lessons. and maybe if they do they can truly become one. balanced. thatÂ´s why I think the Potentium encompasses Jedi AND Sith. If it would encompass both of them, it would have to include Sith teachings and I doubt that - except perhaps in the case of exceptional individuals - Jedi and Sith teachings can co-exist. I think the Sith teachings would eventually "take over". houghts? this is what I hope and think about the future. including the legacy series maybe. though no real sith lymia might bring back some sith lore and unify it with the jedi. when they understand in the end they are alike, one. and instead of being killed, she forgets her anger and is turned or joins the new order. well, difficult and I dunno how to pull this.. but it is something unexpected I hope for. Well, I donÂ´t think that there will be reconciliation between Lumiya(who, I hope, will be a real Sith and not a Sith wannabe in the series) and the Jedi. Maybe Luke can bring her back to the light, but I doubt she can live. I think that her fate at best will be the same as her former master Darth VaderÂ´s. Of course Sith lore could be united with Jedi in some other way. Jacen - the most likely major person to do so, I think Ben is far too young in the 9 initial LoTF books - could fall for some time to the dark side and then reconciled with the Jedi. I would like to see the Sith survive in some form - as bad as they tend to be, they have existed for 25 000 years.
