    Hi all,

    i was just crusing around a little website that i frequent called Paranormal News and i saw this artical. Its pretty interesting, but i i keep wondering what you guys and gals it is.

    "The universe is controlled by not one power but two--positive and negative. They are in a state of eternal conflict, which, when there is enough of it, infuriatingly resembles peace. Take a close-up view of a smooth surface?look at all those jagged cliffs! Just as the two opposing poles of a magnet can never overwhelm the other, all sins that you could possibly do will never eradicate virtue, and all virtue will never eradicate sin. Through direct purpose or whimsical accident, the universe is in a state of complete flux, and we are the tipping points. We hold the scales in our hand, and we have every right to cheat with weights or allow the universe to weigh itself without our direct intervention. It is up to us, our lives, which somehow exist at a crossing point of positives and negatives?a choice between the two?and they circle around us, pervade us just as much as we pervade them. There is always a winner and there is always a loser, and because there are so many winners and losers, there are none. Everything negates, except negation which creates all those positives that everyone wants so badly in their own lives. That is the purpose of the Sith: to negate. And in so doing, they create all those positives that everyone seeks.

    In art, the tipping point between the two poles is usually pretty clear cut. Hollywood bows to the people?s common religion, common perception, common power, common sense. Movies are infused with these common elements to appeal to the same people they are attempting to mirror. Man likes to see himself in art, spends money on art that resembles himself internally, so the most successful are those elements which are the most reflective of the largest number of people. Look at this blog and how unpopular it is. Why? Because what it reflects is something which most people cannot relate to nor particularly care to understand. If appeal is a reflection of success in art, then this blog is clearly unsuccessful. If personal revelation is a reflection of success in art, then this blog is clearly very successful.

    Having said that, some of the most successful movies have been the Star Wars series. We, as a common people, see a reflection of ourselves in the choices Luke and Anakin made. We understand how appealing it must have been for Anakin and Luke to join the dark side, but at the same time, we don?t want them to. If the endings were somehow truncated, we would have never known if they had made the right decisions, and our own indecision would have been much more apparent to us. Maybe Anakin would have saved his wife?s life instead of contributing to her death. Maybe Luke would have joined Vader and created balance through imbalance. But the endings were not truncated, we saw the biases come shining through by seeing who ultimately came out on top in shining blue digital remastered high definition color. On top of that, the actors age, we see the lie more clearly, so the remaining six films will probably never be created.

    Remaining six films? Yes. We need six more films to truly bring balance to the force. And those six films must all be of the success of the dark side, the success of the emperor, and the necessity of the Sith. We need clear cut examples of the importance of singularity, of the wisdom of the Sith as they sacrificed themselves to the goals and objectives of the unilaterally powerful emperor. We need examples of mob rule and how their decisions tear down life just as much as they create. We need examples of miserable planets all working for unnamed goals, communistic societies where everything is shared, and how only through the rise of the selfish Sith leaders did they claim themselves from poverty stricken lands and turn themselves into the Coruscants of the future. For only through selfish pursuits--bold, brash, in your face egoism?can we lay the tracks and fi
