At the risk of sounding somewhat condescending, briefly... HW, do you understand that there is something like a difference between movies and the real world around us? I understand that Campbell doesn't much to emphasize that, but there is a case to be made that there is use in making this distinction, be it ever so fuzzy...

I think cloudy is a better description than fuzzy. I think that George Lucas believes that the destruction of Tiamat or Phaeton or the Fifth planet formed the asteroid belt.

Anyone can type words without research for that long.

However, I would like to thank whomever moved these posts to the correct thread. :)

First of all, who cares what you believe George Lucas believes? Second of all, who cares what George Lucas believes? Third of all, what does this have to do with the query you quoted and are presumably responding to?

I understand that Tiamat might have been destroyed by the Death Star. I understand that most myths might have originated with Sumerian and Akkadian Myths. I understand that the Nibirians might have came to Earth for two reasons. Have you read the Enuma Elis?

I have read the post I quote to respond to. I understand that Count Dooku is a fictional character and Count Dracula was a real person.

I understand that Midi-Chlorians are fictional and Midichloria are real.

I understand that the Death Star is fictional and Nemesis is hypothetical.

Yea but, midichloria were named afterwards so they don't count :P

I actually use the term myself to denote that healthy human microbiota, most notably living in the gut and perhaps even recently signs they might exist within the blood brain barrier and have direct interaction with the brain. The gut biota already has some good evidence pointing to their role to the immune system directly and indirectly to the brain, among other things. So for me, midichlorians are the healthy microorganisms living within us. There is even an emerging field of psychobiotics to this end....to give oneself a bump in the Force :silly:
