Quick thought; why is it that the Sith essence transfer is dark side and the Jedi Force-ghosting is fine? With ghosting, they achieve true immortality, which is one of the main reasons the Sith are cited as being evil.


Really? I bet if you think about this a bit longer you can figure it out for yourself...
It's not about the immortality, but about how it's achieved.
With the essence transfer a Sith possesses the body of another being while destroying the essence (soul/spirit/mind or whatever you want to call it) of the being they are possessing. They take over the body and destroy the mind of their victim to achieve immortality.
A Jedi ghost is just that, a ghost. Nobody gets hurt for a Jedi to become a Force Spirit and being a spirit and thus dead is not the same as being immortal and thus alive IMO.

Oh yeah Embarassed

I tend to be quite cynical at times, and for that I apologise.

But with Palpio, he was using clones, so no one got harmed. But, people got hurt as a result of him being alive, so I guess his transfer wasn't for a good reason, thus being dark side.

I get it.

"Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not."


The ultimate goal of the Jedi was never immortality (even though they can achieve it via Force ghost).

The Sith seem to be obsesed with immortality. Why did Simus bother to live on? Or Karness Muur for that matter? Is that really better than becoming one with the force?

When you die, your identity is lost as your life energy becomes one with the Force. So the Sith don't like death because it destroys the self, whereas the Sith are all about self adulation. Ultimately the Jedi and Sith go to the same place but their perspective is what makes it either desirable or undesirable.

If Chaos is meant to be a SW version of Hell don't the residents of that place have to keep their identity intact in some form?
