If you can give me telekinetic powers and the ability to see the future, I'll be open to as many "one with the universe experiences" as you like. As to your responses, you make some good points, but I suppose I just find it difficult to believe that Yoda and Obi-Wan would have been so fixated on Luke and Leia had they not known from the start that they would be among the very few who actually had a chance of destroying the Sith. Additionally, I think the notion that they intended to use the familial connection to their advantage is...misplaced. It's not just that they didn't tell Luke about it, but it also seems as though they believe Anakin wouldn't care. They believe that he's Darth Vader, more machine now than man, and they were surprised when Vader did tell Luke -- it came as an unexpected and unfortunate revelation to them.
