The Force is at the center of each and every Jedi’s path.  Here in the Temple, we do not present you with a definition of the Force which you must adhere to.  

For these assignments, you will write essays discussing your understanding of the Force and your ideas about it.  Understanding that the Force may be, in some aspects, ineffable while still giving thought and words to aspects of it which can be elucidated, complete each of the essay assignments. These essays may not be all-inclusive or extensive, but encourage concentration on what is meant when one says “the Force”. Post these essays in your journal here at the Temple.
