You’re listening to the Story of Star Wars, a 20th Century Fox LP from 1977 and…

You’re on the Sound Beat.

Ah, the Force. A supernatural power that binds all entities throughout the universe. George Lucas would borrow the idea from many cultures: chi in traditional Chinese culture, mana in Hawaiian; in Hindu culture it’s “prana” the word translating directly as “life force”. And with the possible exception of light sabers, it’s just about the coolest part of the whole Star Wars universe.
