Posted:I was talking With my friend (Darth) Paul and he said if he was a Jedi Knight he would probably go over to the Dark Side as the temptation would be too much. He's a really lovely guy and it got me thinking if he would go over to the Dark Side it could happen to anyone.......

So my question is this: If you were a Jedi would you be able to resist the temptation of going over to the Dark Side of the Force?

Posted:well...
if you go with the ages old "the color of your chains' glowsticks is the color of your jedi light saber" and "the color of your light saber determines which side of the force you're on" philosophies, then i'm a dark sider, as i prefer my chains have red glowsticks. narff. you think that the jedi's would figure all that out, and just not teach anyone who likes red light sabers..
however i constantly rescue bugs from sidewalks and other dangerous locales, and am a pretty disciplined (tho pshycho) religious fanatic, so i'd say that i'm a good guy.. in fact as i mentioned on the star wars thread i am the buff jedi guy with the tentacles -in real life- man he was cool! got to do something about that outfit tho... i mean, do we have to wear that blah old boring brown robe? where's the cool black and silver art nouveau style plasteel armor?

Posted:Cassandra, I what you said is quite relevent. I know I'd like to believe that I'd be on the light side, but the dark side has it's own seductive appeal. Like you say until we are faced with the situation we cannot say how we will act/what we would do. Dr Spock???

Sunspot, I also find Ewoks incredibly cute and lovable. I wouldn't go so far as to want to be one, but I would love to live in a tree. My nick name many years ago was Ewok.

SNOOPoi, We'll be having a serious talk about this *you going over to the dark side* business

Posted:I would like to think I belong to the side of good however.

I experience fear, and fear leads to anger, and anger leads to hate and hate leads to the dark side

so I guess I would end up as one of Darth's minions

Posted:I'm with Smiley. I may have to be a dark one too. But again there's something quite seductive about the darkside. It's kinda erotic in some strange way. Having said that I just want the cloak and the saber to whoop ass with!

Posted:<<raising hand meekly while standing up slowly>> My name is Super', and im a Star Wars addict..

Just for informations sake, You construct your own light saber. its a very delicate task. They are a focused beam of energy controlled by reflecting the energy through natural crystals. Kellian Crystals are the best, which after the Empire took over are hard to come by. If you dont have Kellian crystals, youll have to make your own, which is very difficult, and the chances that your lightsaber will explode when you first diploy it more than triple if it was constructed wrong.

What does all this mean?? Basically, since you construct your own it can be any shape, color, length, ect...that you choose, as long as you have the skill and knowledge to do construct it. So if you can do it, you can have a purple/yellow poka-dotted light saber coming out of a rubber banana with a swivel handle....if your into that sort of thing...

Posted:its wrong, its wrong THE WHOLE DAMN SYSTEM IS WRONG!!! the force is just like religon. there trying to focus either on the good energy of the world or the bad. doing this only blinds you because the world and life and all the energy of the universe is ever changeing and completely chaotic.. and you need the good and the bad.. turning your thoughts from evil does not make it go away. it only allows it to grow inside you with out the guidence of your heart and mind..i would balance the force of all of that energy and go and the direction that circumstance takes me.
if being kind and compasionate seems like it will fly with whats happening around you then thats what you should act on.. but if your in a hostile situation you need to be able to instantly tap into the most evil and diabolical energies inside you to beat down the enemies of life and peace..
it may seem that your sinking to there level but you must not deny that you have the dark energy in you too, your just not gonna act on it unless its totally neccasary... if every good person acted like obi won and just let darth vader strike them down we would live in a world of negative energy. balance is the key...... ya thats it..

---Frank Herbert, Dune - Bene Gesserit Litany Against FearWow, that brings back some memories! As soon as I read your post I dug up my old journals and,sure enough, there was that same quote from Dune, scrawled in various locations in the journals that spanned the time from when I was 16 to about 20. That litany made a big difference in my life, growing up in a highly chaotic, unstable environment. Good to see someone else appreciates it!

Posted:WOW, lightbug! I take it you weren't camping out in front of the theater for a week waiting for Episode II while dressed up as that blue thing from the bar on Tatooine that plays the organ looking thing. ("Jaba-Jaba doo-ah" :dee-dee-deet da deet deet:) It's a very respectable system. The Jedi are the keepers of the peace. They use their skill and almost stoic control of emotion and thought to defeat their enemies. Their power lies in the fact that they have complete mastery over themselves. ANYWAYS...

So, I'm on about the color of your lights being the color of your saber thing. I think I would give my left testicle to have a color-changing light saber...

:drools incessantly over the idea of two blue-red-green RAV'N lightsabers:

But if the color dictated your pre-disposition to the side of the Force you would become, then where would that leave me??? I guess I would get the best of both worlds. (RED, BLUE, and GREEN?!) But in the end, I would still be mostly good. KICK ASS!!! That means I could still fry your ass for walking into the middle of the dance circle!!!

quote:I am a proud and noble warrior, dedicated to upholding the virtue of the Universe and giving killer lightshows. But I swear on the Force itself, if you do that one more time, I am going to seriously mind-f*ck you!!!

Posted:Well when talking color association, Im all about the red and black...too bad black wont glow..

As far as light and dark side is concerned...people cant "choose" per say which side they want to be on. You are either born with more "good", or more "bad". Now just because someone has been born on the dark side...it doesnt nessecarily make them a bad person either, just means the way they view things might be a slight bit more negative than a light sider.

I am a dark, no doubt about it. Even in life, jedi powers aside, I am an asshole and I will fully admit it without a problem at all. But that doesnt mean if a good friend was in need...I wouldnt be there before you could blink, cuz I would....I think you all get my drift..

Let there be no confusion that fandom can far exceed the sensible

On a less silly note, to favour one side of the force over the other side due to the colour of a lightsaber is kinda like a samurai choosing the buishido paths cus she gets to play with long sharp pointy bits
This is not the Arrakeen way.

Posted:dont get me wrong glow show im all about the jedi but i just think that theres no way to say that your 100% good or bad we all have both energies pulling us. its ok to recognize the evil in yourself as long as you have good intentions and a respect for life... keeping in touch with that dark side will keep you balanced and open minded. it will also help you understand your enemy. you cant try to win a fight with a hostile aggressive enemy with a handshake, you have to tap into your darkside and take charge (peace through superior fire power). i would also have to say that the darkside combined with a person who is trying to protect loved ones or your home is much more powerful then the darkside in someone who is just trying to gain power for his or her self. they need a jedi with poi lightsabers that would be awsome.. i wish my glowsticks made lightsaber noises i wonder if you could break open one of those old light saber toys and attach the sound thinga ma bob to a glowstick????
