The Force Venn Diagram

Is Anakin Skywalker the Chosen One? Did he really bring balance to the Force? How?

Both the Jedi and the Sith were unbalanced. By defeating them both, Anakin left Luke Skywalker as the sole known Force user, who embodies Light and Dark sides!


How could that be? Luke’s good, not evil. See, we’ve misunderstood the Force because we’ve only learned the unbalanced Jedi point of view, but another, more consistent understanding can be found in the Star Wars Saga.

Light and Dark are not Good and Evil. Rather, both sides of the Living Force are Good, and they must be held in balance. The above chart shows these complementary aspects of Good as well as their opposite Evil.

The blue, red, and green boundaries show that neither the Jedi nor Sith embrace all of the Force, but only Luke balances the Light and Dark Sides.
