    The Jedi represent the opposite - a selfless devotion that all but erases one's individuality.

    In some sense, the Jedi are the defacto good-guys, as they care about the balance of the force and submit to the concept of being guided by "the force." Without the Jedi (or someone else 'following the call of the force') - there would be only Sith.

    But the balance requires there to be selfish ambition as part of it. It's a sort of Yin and Yang concept; or it could also be looked at as a sort of 'Turbulence Theory' - drawing a parallel to physics where fluids (or gasses) with imbalanced heating will become turbulent with certain regions having much higher energy densities than others (causing exchanges of energy between these imbalanced regions that, in planetary environments, results in thunderstorms). An active and healthy system will have conflict that arises from the differences in ideologies.
    Yes, Yes, exactly! Just look at Jason Solo (the son of Leia and Han in the later versions of the books), he became a sith named Darth Ceadus and brought true balance back to the force. He only became a Sith because it was necessary for the galaxy, for without the Sith the government was quick to try to turn on the Jedi order.

    You should read the evolution of the mind. I forget the name of the author (I just read the book myself) but it's a great read and explains in part one of the reasons for religious ideology.
    I agree on that, and I'm not some kid infatuated with triangles and the all-seeing eye . I know that it's plain symbolism and not meant for brainwashing of some sort. The information we need is just being put right under our noses. And I'm also familiar with
    'the evolution of the mind' . Interesting read, indeed. btw I got a book today from my mom called 'The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho' matches your username

    You should read The Alchemyst by Michael Scott. He combines the legend of the noted alchemist Nicholas Flamel and his wife with a lot of mythology. He even as two villains that are supposed to be Dr. John Dee and Nichalo Machieveli. It's an awesome series.
