“May the Force be with you.”

This sentence is undoubtedly one of the most famous sentences in film history. But what about this mysterious power in Star Wars, which is said to have a great influence on the intellectually weak? Can you mentally influence other people? How can Luke Skywalker move objects with the power of his thoughts? Could telekinesis really exist, perhaps even in our galaxy? And why did George Lucas in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace disenchant the mystical Force by introducing the Midi-Chlorians?

Hubert Zitt will answer these and other questions in his lecture about the FORCE. He will also discuss the influence of the Jedi Knights and their wisdom on real life and thus the question of why there are people who claim to have Jediism as their religion.
