I have to question this. While clearly evil exists in the GFFA as in our world, why is evil a cosmic force? What if evil is purely the creation of sapient minds? This is not to say that evil is an illusion that exists because we are hurt by things, because even if we differ on the finer points most human societies have come to some pretty standard conclusions about what is and is not right. No, rather I mean to say that is is possible that the universe, God, the Force, whatever, does not create evil, sapient minds do. Sapient minds crave power, control over others, and dominance because we fear, and because we deny that the other person is every bit as much a person as we ourselves are. After all, the "Jedi...kill in service of life". By removing agents of evil will, even by removing them from life, the whole is protected. And while I can see the argument that sometimes the Force might allow the Jedi to fail when they seek to uphold a stagnant, decaying form, a la the Old Republic toward its end, I don't believe the Force has an entropic nature or function. If we take as true that the Force is inextricably bound to life, that "life creates it, makes it grow" then the natural order of the Force must be to foster and nurture life, which I have ever held as being the opposite of entropy.
