I have a question, and or random thought, that may be really out there (No drugs were involved in creating this topic) .
In TPM and AOTC, the Jedi refer to the Prophecy of the one who will bring balance to the force. They assume it is Anakin. The question/Random thought is this: Does Anakin's mere existance bring balance to the force, or does it happen in another way?
(okay this is where it goes wacko) As I see it, by being the father of Luke and Leia, those two balance the force out: Man/Woman, compassionate warrior/Strong leader, etc.
Anakin brings balance by fathering the (admittedly EU) Re-Founder of the Jedi, and Re-Founder of the republic.
Also in the EU, it is said that Luke uses both Light and Dark Side powers at points during his career as a Jedi. That would lead me to think that Luke can keep each side in check, and "balances the force"
That's my thought. Any Ideas?
(And yes, I am using valuable company time to post this, why do you ask?)
