_The Phantom Menace_, Qui Gong is the Chinese art of raising internal energy (the internal linkforce) and a internal linkDjinn is an arabic spirit, hence Qi Gon Jinn. Padme is internal linkSanskrit for internal linkLotus, as in the internal linkmantra internal linkOmAum... Mani Padme Hum, Amidala sounds suspiciously like Amida, one of the internal linkJapanese names for Buddha, and Nabu is internal linkSumerian for Saturn.  "Yoda" is also derived from the Sanskrit word for "warrior."

On my third viewing, I noticed a familiar object hanging upside down in Anakin's room - a Trac-Ball raquet.   For those unfamiliar, a Trac-Ball set consisted of two Lacross-like or Jai-Lai catchers made of plastic.  Two people played "catch" with it but as you "threw" the plastic ball which glided over the ridged plastic, it gave it a weird spin causing an unfamiliar curvature to play with.  One of my fave toys of the early eighties. - @Om* 1/22/00

re: Episode I

i take this movie for what it is.  George Lucas working with virtually unlimited resources.  it proves the validity of the cyberpunk ethic.  all great hacks come from working with what you have in front of you.  innovation is forced.  Star Wars was a fluke.  Empire was a well done expansion of strategic drama.  you can see the cosmology lose itself in Return..., in exchange for a sense of conclusion for a targeted audience...  - @Om* 11/28/99

a big reason why Episode I doesn't work:  the kid does not make me believe that he will turn into the all out incarnation of evil.  he should have been more disturbed.  they should have used the kid from internal link_Sixth Sense_ (vhs/ntsc) atomjacked inventory cache(1999)- @Om* 6/4/00

    "The shamans will point the way because they are visionaries, poets, cultural architects, forecasters - all these roles that we understand in more conventional terms rolled into one and raised to the nth power.  They are cultural models for the rest of us.  It has always been true that the shaman has access to a superhuman internal linkdimension  and a superhuman condition and thereby affirms the potential for transcendence in all people.  The shaman is an exemplar, if you will, and I see the newinternal linkattention that's being given to these things signaling a sense on the part of society that we need to return to these models.  This is why, for instance, in the _Star Wars_ phenomenon Skywalker, the name of a major character, is a direct translation of the word "shaman" out of the internal linkTungusic, which is where Siberian internal linkshamanism comes from.  So these heroes; they control a internal linkforce that is bigger than everybody and holds the galaxy together;  this is true, as a matter of fact.  As we explore how true this is, the limitations of our previous worldview will be exposed for all to see.  I think it was J.B.S. Haldane who said, 'The world may not only be stranger than we suppose, it may be stranger than we can suppose."

    "Revenge of theinternal linkJedi"... Episode 6 in the Star Wars saga, has just finished filming, according to some friends I have down in Arizona.

    The release date for us humans that want to see it is still the summer of 1983.  I guess it takes that long to score all the music, do all the film-editing, prepare all the promo material, and all that junk.

    I wish internal linkLucas & Co. would get the thing going a little faster. I can't really internal linkimagine waiting until 1997 to see all nine parts of the Star Wars series.

    Here's a trivia question for other fellow addicts of Star Wars:

            Most everyone knows that the original "Star Wars" was
            episode 4 in the series, and "The Empire Strikes Back"
            was episode 5.

            Who out there knows the new correct TITLE of Episode 4?

            Don't get me wrong -- the thing is still called Star Wars
            by millions of people, but there is a specific title that
            tells what episode 4 is about.  That's what I'm looking
            for.

            ...!decvax!teklabs!tekmdp!randals
                    -or-
            ...!ucbvax!teklabs!tekmdp!randals

    I'll publish the correct title in about a week.

    P.S. How many people have seen SW more than 22 times in the theatre, or at triple speed on video tape (boy, that's fun)?
