The Star Wars Force Equation: Unleash the Power – Book Review
Part of the book description on Amazon reads: “If you are a fan of the Star Wars movies, hopefully, it’t not because of the shoot-em-up aspect of the movies but because of the spiritual side of it. When Obi-Wan Kenobi first teaches Luke Skywalker about The Force he says – “It’s created by all living things and binds the universe together.” George Lucas was right in half of this sentence and wrong on the other. There is a force that binds the universe together and it was recently discovered by scientists using the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland and announced to the world as ‘The God Particle Field’ on July 4th, 2012 to very little fanfare even though it is the most important part of our universe because without it, nothing else can exist. Life can exist even without oxygen, water, food, sunshine, but nothing, not even including Life can exist without this newly discovered ‘Force’ because it is the smallest sub-atomic particles to stick together and this in turn allows the atoms to form, and it’s the atoms of all the elements that come together to form molecules – again due to the influence of ‘The Force’. Without the molecules in our brains, our hearts, our livers, our hands, eyes, nose, ears and toes, we would not be able to get very far or do very much, or even be.”
I admit I wasn’t looking forward to reviewing this book but was surprised by how much interest I had in the facts presented. Although I may not agree with some of what is in the book, it is well written and explained. My son however, enjoyed the book immensely and highly recommends it for anyone interested in examining the relationship between the universe, math and science.
I personally think you have to not only have a heavy interest in this area but also be in the right frame of mind to read the book. Since I did find many of the facts interesting I was able to get through reading it quickly and with interest. The description ends with this statement: Find out how this scientific equation may change your life. I’m not sure I fully found how any of this will change my life but if you have a heavy interest in the relation between science, math, religion and the universe I think you will enjoy reading the book.
