There are two particular examples in the PT which jar with me with regards to the Jedi and their behaviour. I can't be the only one that finds these puzzling but...they don't seem to be addressed very much, if at all. The first is with regards to Qui-Gon, and his admonishment of young Obi-Wan at the beginning of TPM. Obi-Wan says that he senses something. Qui-Gon expressly says that strangely, he doesn't sense anything. When Obi-Wan says that it is something "elsewhere", Qui-Gon tells him not to dwell on his anxieties, then on to something about the 'living force' and to be mindful of the future but not at the expense of the present. Whenever this is brought up it is often to highlight some weakness in Obi-Wan's then current understanding of the Force (which Qui-Gon exemplifies by stating such before the Council) and Qui-Gon's exemplary link with that 'living force' - generally believed to approximate to 'in the moment'. Now, there are a couple of things that don't quite add up for me. Firstly, Qui-Gon says he doesn't sense anything. If anything Obi-Wan is more attuned with the reality of their situation than Qui-Gon is at that moment. I would even go as far as to suggest that Qui-Gon is somewhat blind here compared to Obi-Wan, that Qui-Gon should have given his padawan a little more credit for this, rather than dismissing his attachment to the 'living force' so casually in the Council chambers. Then there is the puzzling incoherence of his position upon discovering Anakin. He then goes into overdrive to act upon a prophecy, and seems to put the moment completely aside to the future connotations of his discovery. How come the rest of the Council and Obi-Wan see the fear in this young boy, yet Qui-Gon dismisses such explicitly because of the prophecy (that is the only reason he ever gives for his desire to see Anakin trained as a Jedi). Is Qui-Gon guilty of ignoring his own advice here?
