For instance, in Episode V, the following dialogue occurs between the Emperor and Darth Vader:
Emperor: There is a great disturbance in the Force.
Darth Vader: I have felt it.
Emperor: We have a new enemy. [...] He could destroy us.
Darth Vader: He's just a boy. Obi-Wan can no longer help him.
Emperor: The Force is strong with him. The son of Skywalker must not become a Jedi.
This raises a few questions:
- Can beings who are attuned to the Force sense the existence of others who are "strong with the Force" within the galaxy?
- Is affinity with the Force inherited?
- Do certain people have greater potential than others? Luke's powers were not at all developed when the exchange between the Emperor and Vader took place. Why would the Force be strong with him in relation to other people?
