Obi-Wan Kenobi says: "Well, the Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together."

Taoism says: "The Tao (or Dao)is a power which envelops, surrounds and flows through all things, living and non-living. The Tao regulates natural processes and nourishes balance in the Universe."


Did Lucas have a SINGLE original idea?? :grin:

The ONLY good thing about Jar Jar is that he helps me shoot better on the range...I just imagine that every OD green silhouette that pops up is an annoying pink alien bastard with a lisp who serves no purpose whatsoever in the grand scheme of things....POW! Die Jar Jar.

And Lucas, you suck too for raping my childhood.

I thought "Discuss." was Damage's trademark. Now it seems as if everyone and his brother are using it.

You should watch the Biography Channel and see the two hour episode on Lucas. He borrow all kinds of stuff for those orginal 3 movies.

Vader. That I would think was a great villian and pretty damn orginal.

Maybe you guys are ready to see Star Grail (Darth Vadar meets Monty Python)
this link should be it but you may have to search for "Star Grail" and click on "Guard Duty" and skip the lame movie advertisement once it starts.

Actually, it's from a Mike Myers SNL sketch series, where he played some big stereotypical Jewish woman from New Jersey.

Are there any other paralells between Taoism and the Star Wars series?
