Qui-Gon Jinn in Star Wars, Episode I: „Midi-chlorians are microscopic life-forms that reside within the cells of all living things and communicate with the Force." […] We are symbionts with the midi-chlorians.[…] Life-forms living together for mutual advantage. Without the midi-chlorians, life could not exist, and we would have no knowledge of the Force. Our midi-chlorians continually speak to us, Annie, telling us the will of the Force.“
Max Tegmark vom Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge: „Tegmark’s approach is to think of consciousness as a state of matter, like a solid, a liquid or a gas. 'I conjecture that consciousness can be understood as yet another state of matter. Just as there are many types of liquids, there are many types of consciousness,' he says.“ The Force is strong with this one.
