In this questions answer its stated that Kylo Ren freezes the blaster bolt in midair with telekinesis:
Because he is extremely skilled in Force telekinesis, Kylo Ren is able to freeze not just objects but even blaster bolts in midair.
But as a commenter already pointed out, this seems nonsense (even in star wars force physics). The blaster bolt is, as far as I know, a cloud of plasma. If it is stopped by telekinesis, why should it continue its old path with its old speed after it is released? Wasn't it more a completely new force ablility like "time freeze"? While I admit in a case of time freeze the bolt should not have flickered all the time. Also the plasma should have expanded and vanished or simply cooled down releasing its energy to the surrounding air.
So when it was force telekinesis Kylo must have done the following:
- Stop every atom in the plasma cloud
- Keep the cloud compressed and in form and shape.
- Isolate it to prevent the heat flow or keep it on temperature (is this still telekinesis?)
- Not just releasing it but accelerate it again exactly on its old path and speed.
This would be indeed a greate never seen mastery of telekinesis. And very ineffective. And if he wanted to be cool, wouldn't it be even cooler to change the path after the "release" so that it hits one of his enemies?
So what was going on there? Pure telekinesis or something else? Did the writers intend this? Or did they just not thinking it to the end?
