Now with only Episode III to come, we all have a fair idea of the chronology and trials that have taken Anakin Skywalker, the Blake-like image of child/cherubum innocence (complete with his discussion of Angels in Watto's Yard, TPM) through the isolated and disciplined existence of a Jedi, and the inevitable decline into Darkness as the naive and raw innocence opens a path in his soul to the Sith Teachings, as his life culminates into the formation of "Darth Vader". The Saga is FULL of nuance and hints that may tell us exactly what Anakin's path may be, what he is symbolic of, and importantly, how this boy will one day - despite the evil and tyranny of his Sith reign - bring "Balance to the Force". Now, many discussions exist on how exactly he brings "balance to the Force". Is he balancing Light and Dark in some quasi-Taoist manner, or perhaps the newer theory of balancing the "Living Force" with the "Unified Force"? Is he perhaps shattering the "unbalanced" tenants of the Jedi Order, and through his ruthless culling of the old, has inadvertently heralded in the age of the New? (Luke Skywalker, Leia etc) Is it simply that he killed Palpatine, whose very existence tipped the entire galaxy - despite the weight of thousands of Jedi - towards Darkness? By killing the man who could influence the entire Jedi Council, did Anakin Skywalker bring the balance back to the light or status quo, despite the deaths of most of the Jedi Order? Or do you have a different theory? This question is complex one, and we have now, an entire Saga to draw upon to support our opinions and arguements with solid evidence and interpretation. Discuss.
