think about it, really sit down and think about it. attachment, the one issue that seems to be at the very nexus of the starwars universe. one rule, being able to live without it, being able to throw yours away, act as if it never exsisted. and this one rule was for all intents and purposes, a good rule, IF UPHELD. IF UPHELD. the order of the jedi stood for thousands of years, attachment causes too many unecessary problems, and leads to stick situations, with even stickier consequences for your actions. I have developed a certain respect for yoda's tenure as the grand master of the jedi order. IF UPHELD, this atachment rule would have benefitted the greater good of the galaxy. think of anakin letting go of his attachments to his mother, and padme. think of the wonders anakin would have been able to produce, think of the good he could have done, in some ways alot like jesus. well, not far from it. he could have done so much, IF he would have UPHELD the one rule. forego attachment. imagine a mace windu, who is thinking clearly and rationally when confronting the sith lord, imagine a mace windu that is more concentrated on finding the shatterpoint in his current situation, than almost blind with rage fighting against the man who abused and violated HIS republic. attachment. let it go. the very nature of this one rule, this one rule that seems perfect, seems so simple, so DUH!!! is that it could and never would work. the rule in itself is perfect, the logic there is undeniable, seriously, it really is bullet proof, with one small detail, IT'S NOT POSSIBLE!!!! yoda was asking the impossible, he was asking something that only he could ever hope to possibly achieve. life without attachments!!! who says that besides a green frog who's only shot in life is with yaddle!! LOL j/k (back to the point.) it just doesn't work. the bar is too high. there is too much involved with living, to much to do, to see. asking this one simple rule, just didn't work. the idea though is perfect. think about it, really, think about it.
