the force created anakin to determine once and for all what side (light or dark) was stronger. anakin was created as a normal being (with both evil and good qualities). it was important to make him a little of both, in order to give anakin and the galaxy a real choice. from that point, the force intervenes no longer. it simply sits back and observes. consider this a test to determine the quality of man -the force's way of understanding its own creation. if the dark side wins and eventually wipes all life out, then so be it... that will only prove that man is dark and not worthy of survival anyway. but there is always the chance that the light side is stronger. the force itself doesn't know what side is stronger though. that's basically what it's trying to find out -it's confused! obviously the force can't interfere, because the "experiment" would be compromised. perhaps that's why obi wan can't interfere as well? posted this at the wrong forum. is better suited here. appreciate your thoughts on the matter. tried "the force" on the search button, but only came up with one match!!! so if this has been discussed, let me know and i'll lock.
