My "hard sf" Star Wars theory
#11
I have never liked the concept of "midichlorians," those symbiotic mitochondria-sized Force-sensitive micro-organisms that have infected the cells of Jedi, Sith, and other Force users. Instead, if one is to continue the argument for a biological basis for why some individuals are Force-sensitive while the vast majority are not, I prefer to think of those exceptional individuals as possessing a mutation that alters the shape of their DNA into a sort of dipole antenna that is "tuned" to receive the Force (some mutations are better able to receive that energy than others); this can "explain" how Force sensitivity can be inherited, while "midichlorian" infection seems a bit more random (as well as being likely to affect populations living in geographical proximity). All of this presumes, of course, that there is some "signal" to be received. Which brings us back to metaphysics.
