Truth be known I do believe that light sabres will become a reality. Maybe
not yet but only because we haven't discovered how.
As for why, well why not? I'd love to have one to wave about and it would
certainly be a good deterent against street crime, hehe.
Anyway, in the film they were held by Jedi knights - a historic throwback to
the swordmanship of the good old days in england. These days they could be a
misused weapon of terror. As someone said - whats to stop me just shooting
Well, I guess thats why only Jedi have them, they would just deflect the
bullets with it. Which is where my other interest lies. Telekenesis and a
light sabre with a dash of esp would make quite a good Jedi.
These people do exist (apparently) so give them a light sabre and a Jedi is
born. I also know that so many people in england stated that they followed
the Jedi religion in a recent Census that it nearly became a recognised
religion. There would be no shortage of recruits. What this says about the
effect of a film on everyday people is another debate.
So I leave you all to ponder just how a beam off energy can be created of a
fixed length that can cut through anything yet repel another beam (hence the
sword fight is made possible) and yet the power source and so on can be
housed in a small handle.
To dream is to sow the seeds in an inventors mind. So its upto you to
