How can a force -sensitive live?

On a single planet. Obi-Wan has light years away from Alderaan and he felt everyone die. Imagine living in the U.S. and an earthquake in China kills 600, then the next day a tsunami in the Phillipines kills 300. How can you handle feeling all that every day?

Pretty sure Obi-Wan only felt that because of how monumental it was. I mean, that's potentially trillions of beings dying in a single instant; and I wouldn't be so sure he was quite that far away, either.

But yeah, on a general level it'd be pretty sucky, since most of the greatest Jedi have empathetic senses that are, to varying degrees of accuracy, on a planetary scale.

Yeah, billions if not trillions of people simultaneously dying is a far-cry from a few hundred or even a thousand.

Something else to keep in mind, in real life ~150,000 people die across the globe every day. Imagine how many people die daily on a planet like Coruscant, which has a population of 1 trillion. You're looking at easily millions or even billions of deaths per day, which translates to at least thousands of deaths per second. The Jedi seemed to do okay, though, despite living there. They could even meditate and relax lol.

It can be traumatic enough to make some withdraw from the Force for an extended period of time, or in extreme cases, sever their own connection (Meetra).

All depends on the circumstances.

Keep in mind, there's probably a substantial difference between multiple people dying naturally of old age, multiple people dying violently over a period of time such as a battle, and an entire planet's population of people dying at pretty much exactly the same time.

Isn't it obvious? Nomi Sunrider tapped into the power of the Jedi Temple and briefly became an infinitely powerful avatar of the light, using that power to cast a protective field across the Galaxy that would last for millennia, protecting the Jedi from much of the grief that reverberated through the Force.

DUH

It says so in the KOTOR Limited Ultimate Collector's Edition Campaign Guide #4

It does seem like it's only an *unusual* ripple in the force.


Like, the normal cycles of life and death, you don't feel it much because there's also new life as well as death. Or maybe just other life around absorbs and lessens the effect. Coruscant has a ton of people and probably about as many births as deaths.


Hm... that makes me wonder if a billion people coming into being at once would cause a reaction.... probably wouldn't work with most life as growth and birth is sooo gradual compared to death, but, like, if you had a species that grew to a noticeable size in a day....

Billions of sentients and trillions of life forms were wiped out in an instant...so yeah not comparable to an earth quake.

Even mega disasters normally aren't so *sudden*.


Like, an earthquake? People'll die of collapsing stuff and bleeding outover a fairly long period, hours depending on how bad their wounds are.

Tidal waves? Spread out over minutes just for drowning victims in the same area.


Superlaser? Everyone dies the same second.

Yeah I see your points. However, I think their is also a distance barrier. A Jedi living on Coruscant wouldn't feel an earthquake death on Tatooine, but a man living in New York and an earthquake in California a measly 3,000 miles away.... HEADACHES
