Gonna be honest.

Basically agree with most of that.

Like the Jedi being evil, whether through purpose or incompetence, is another thing that I prescribe to.

Except Mace Windu. Mace Windu was baller.

Edit: Well up to the bit where science would end up making the force better, but only because in my head canon I'm going with the force parasites thing, where studying them would just reveal they're a good indicator of force potential, because more swarm to the richer feeding spots, but not much else.

Mostly because I like my magic to be magic, unless it's already science.

Mace Windu was cool because he got angry, he was just going to straight up murder Palpatine because that's what you should do, he got shit done.
In my head the force is like a an extra field/dimension on the universe which the midichlorians can interact with but normal cells can't.

Wait, but if we can't trust what that Jedi and Sith say, and they're the only ones who talk about midichlorians, then how can we say midichlorians are a trustworthy data point?

Granted, either way, midichlorians are the thing to study. Even if it turns out they're bunk, that's new info.

A willing Jedi test subject would be very good for this sort of thing. Take a midichlorian count before and after a display of force powers. Check to see if there's any change in body heat during the use of a power. Have him levitate an object in a controlled environment, and check for vibrations, electromagnetic waves, etc, so you can see what sort of physical component there is to the levitation.

Default Part of the jedi code.

I'm pretty sure that if the jedi catch you doing that they murder you.

What about Luke, then?

Wait, Obi-Wan never told him about his midichlorians.

Luke didn't use the force- he was just really really high on Dagobah shrooms the whole time.

This is what I'm saying about the magnets thing. The force power is the magnetism, and the midichlorians are bits of metal attracted to the magnets for whatever reason. They don't CAUSE the force power, no more than the metal surrounding a magnet causes it to be more powerful. They just indicate force power.

And, there's nothing in canon to back up in the slightest that midichlorians = force power. They're just around in people who are powerful in the force, and thus serve as an indicator.

Thank you for letting me be better, NPF.

Your magnet analogy only works if magnets only worked when you were real angry at them or real compassionate at them.
