Which has the best chance to exist, Magic or the Force?

Prev13
In our universe, which has a better chance of existing? I think the Force does. Why? Telekinesis, is a popular theory of controlling objects with the mind. Sound familiar?

So, what do you think?

  • There are some that would argue that the force and magic are one and the same.

    Or as Gandalf said "It's what you may call magic.." Which Prof. Tolkien was very against the word magic being used to explain the abilities of some in LOTR. Or as Thor explained to Jane in the movie. You call it science, others call it magic. I come from a realm where they are one in the same".

    I question the use of "Sorcerers" in SW. But I guess it was easier than inventing a new term and thus having to explain it, govern it, etc..

    Also the force is inhabited by "Midi-chlorians" and they preform the act not us?

    Lucas did coin a word to describe it. A couple actually. Jedi and Sith. But also agree with the Thor line, also Jane said that magic's just science we don't understand yet.

    If that were true, then Snoke would have a backstory.
  • I just hope that if Snoke had a backstory, it would be magical

    Forgive me, I was having fun.

    Back on topic, Magic Vs The Force. I think the George borrowed a lot from all of history to go into the story, we can dissect the movies and see that concepts came from everywhere. Jedi are like samurai, stormtroopers...
    Even his beliefs come into play, as he identifies himself as a Buddhist Methodist. Regardless of origin, the ideals are all blended into the universe we all love.

    Nothing wrong with that. I do say specifically the Jedi represents religion more than magic. But the aspects of the force mirror magic. Old Bens Ghost (interesting band name) would be necromancy and you’ve already pointed out manipulation of objects is telekinesis. Force lightning and healing representation of nature?

    Obi-Wan uses the force, but wizards use magic, therefore the force is magic.

    Well in that reference I think GL decided it was easier to use a familiar term. Creating/Summoning something out of thin air, commanding the elements, to me, are abilities associated with magic. Now, the cross over could be healing. Both can. But again the Midi-c's are the ones doing it, not the force user?

  • breaking a Jedi down into healers is like breaking wizard down into Wiccan.

    So you think it's staged or some kind of CGI like they use in star wars? 8-)

    That scene is awkward “magic”.
    The force is good magic. Lol
  • This reminds me of the age old arguement of "who would win, Batman or Superman". And the reply is "Duh, Superman isn't even real!" Lol

  • If the force is separate to magic, magic still exists in the SW universe in the form of the Nightsisters.
