Re: Ki (as in 'The Force')

I will not touch the relationship between Aiki and the Force, but I would like to point out that the ideas in Star Wars were not those of Lucas, but instead those of Joseph Campbell.What Lucas has done with the original vision of Star Wars is shameful, and he has not produced anything even remotely as inspirational as the original trilogy since Campbell passed away.

One more thing, for any young people out there who are interested in starting to walk the thread of the hero path, track down copies of The Power of Myth and The Hero With a Thousand Faces.
