From almost the very first scene of TPM we are shown an ideological split between Yoda and Qui-Gon. Qui-Gon is shown correcting Obi Wan about Yoda's advice saying that while the future is important, the present moment is more important than Yoda thinks. This is the basis of the trilogy and the saga. Yoda considers the future enough of a deciding factor to deny Anakin. ("Clouded this boy's future is.) Qui Gon does not. ("His fate is uncertain, he's not dangerous") This continues in AotC when Yoda and the Jedi can no longer peer into the future. Yoda is very shaken by this because he places so much import on the future. In my opinion, this is a big reason for the Jedi order falling. They had become too removed from reality in many ways. It is no coincidence that their headquarters is a palace in the capital of the galactic government. Qui Gon seems more in tune with the force than the other Jedi. While they all follow "code", he doesn't, even at the expense of a seat on the council. He frees a little slave boy on what he believes to be the will of the force, code be damned. Age be damned. And that's not all, but it's a primer. I'm relatively new to this site, is what I've laid out generally known? Is it considered valid, or bunk? To me there seems to be a clear subtext here on George's part.
