Another thought came up.

Balance.


Balance the force, and the precious little prophecy.

There are a bunch of jedi. There are two sith. How exactly did the council of moderately deranged "wise elders" think that destroying all of the other side would bring "balance"? I mean, really, Anakin IS the chosen one! He DID restore balance. Before you had bunch of jedi, two sith. Now there are two sith, two jedi.

Yep, that's been my outlook on the whole "prophecy" thing. The downfall of the Jedi was that their pride made them think that they were more important than the Force itself. In my estimation, the Force was out of balance because there were too many light side users running around and after a thousand years of greatly outnumbering the dark siders, the Force had become a little threadbare on the light side, so "it" decided to clean house. Of course whether the Force has a consciousness of its own is up to debate . . . by nerds like me (us?).

It doesn't need to be conscious.  It could just be a natural balancing effect, like a predator that hunts all its prey away until there's not enough to live on and so the predator suffers for it.  In creating Anakin, the Force was merely balancing the excess of power held by the Jedi, and it had the ultimate effect of reducing the whole system to only a few practitioners.

I think the midichlorians did it.  I love the water.

"...it's harsh, coarse, gets into your shoes"
*slaps Anakin's hand" "Stay on your side!"
"yes, ma'am."
