The words ” deals in” refers to how Anakin thought he had to fight Obi-wan. It was a battle deal . So to expand Obi-wan’s dialogue, he was meaning , ” Only a Sith will engage in combat due to absolute reasoning.” It makes sense now because Obi-wan was not making any absolute statement that was dealing in combat.
What does it mean to deal in absolutes ? To deal or dwell in Absolute is to discount all other avenues that leads to the same location.
“ Only a Sith deals in absolutes .” But let’s think about the distinction between what Obi – Wan said and Anakin saying, “If you’re not with me, then you’re my enemy.” Now, that is an absolute ; it’s a statement that slices all the complexities out of relationships and principles, leaving nothing but a binary choice.
When you realize that “Only a Sith deals in absolutes ” is an absolute , meaning that every single Jedi including your friend Obi-Wan Kenobi is now an enemy of the Republic. Some Sith deal in absolutes , others are very fine people.
Yoda never killed a Sith Lord, either in canon or in Legends. This is mainly due to the fact that there are so few Sith Lords due to the Rule of Two. The following is the complete canon list of known Sith Lords alive during Yoda’s lifetime: Darth Plagueis (murdered by his apprentice, Darth Sidious)
First, here’s the answer: No, Yoda was not a Sith Lord . He was a Jedi, a Jedi Master and on the Jedi Council. He was a follower of the Light Side of the Force, and he never went to the Dark Side, which is a prerequisite for being a Sith Lord . Yoda was curious, and curiosity is not a step towards the Dark Side.
Ken or Kenne comes from German, and means to know, or be acquainted with, so Kenobi or Kenne obi means “to know heart”, so put it all together, and Obi-Wan Kenobi means : “to lose ones heart to know ones heart” and yeah its not an exact translation, but you never will get one, all languages are subject to slang, err,
The Jedi could not detect that Palpatine was using Force Stealth, simply because he was using Force Stealth. From Wookieepedia: One could, however, argue that their inability to detect him was in part, due to the Jedi’s diminished ability to use The Force as mentioned in Attack Of The Clones.
Palpatine grew terrifically powerful as time passed throughout the Galactic Civil War, and was likely riding pretty high on the dark side when he faced Yoda . But even if they were matched in power, Palpatine’s lack of limit and relentless quest for domination may have overpowered Yoda’s concentrated morals.
Why does Obi – Wan hate blasters so much? It partially harkens back to the traditional Jedi Order (not Old Republic as in when they still had an Empire of Sith running amok, but during Yoda’s lifetime of the last few centuries) when the lightsaber is essentially the only weapon Jedi are trained to use.
” Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you . Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life…
Death is Powerful Motivator When Obi – Wan says this line, it’s because he believes that Luke witnessing a new mentor’s death would push Luke to become the Jedi he needs in order to confront and hopefully save his father and the Galaxy.
Sith Lords are considered evil because they do harmful, abusive, oppressive, and often self-destructive things in the pursuit of power. Darth Vader chokes people in order to variously either torture or kill them, applying this more often to subordinates than to his opponents.
Padme essentially died from depression. After Anakin Force-choked her to near- death , I thought she might hold on because Episode II portrayed her as rather resilient. However, it seems that afterwards she realized what a monster he had become, which made her distraught.
Obi – Wan Kenobi: Anakin , my allegiance is to the Republic, to democracy! Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader: If you’re not with me, then you’re my enemy. Obi – Wan Kenobi: Only a Sith deals in absolutes. I will do what I must.
