Jacen ~ Luke in potential? Empty Jacen ~ Luke in potential?

December 29th 2019, 6:18 am
"I wish I could do that, Uncle Luke," Jacen said. "That was really something."
"You will be able to do anything you want, Jacen," Luke said. "You have the potential-as long as you have the discipline." 


Is this quote referencing Jacen's potential in the force?

Hell no, that’s such obvious hyperbole.

Yes.

But what does that have to do with the title ?

- Luke accomplishes a feat
- Jacen questions whether he can do the feat himself
- Luke says he has the potential to do so

That would mean Jacen has the potential to replicate the feat in question, which wasn't what the title asked.

Yes, but he goes on to say "you can do whatever you want" which could be written off as a hyperbole, but then Luke references "potential" in the force, and the "discipline" required to reach his potential, indicating that Luke is referencing Jacen's overall potential in the force.

It can

I am. 


but then Luke references "potential" in the force, and the "discipline" required to reach his potential, indicating that Luke is referencing Jacen's overall potential in the force.



So? 

The words "potential" or "discipline" aren't exempt from hyperbole.

No, the twins just have a massive hard on by thinking about him so it is just a little childhood obsession. They'll move on

On topic, the quote is nowhere close to conclusive. Not to the one OP proposes
