– as a mythos of our time – the rooted story of that name: “skywalker” lies with Abaris, and a rare breed of men, exceptional athletes of body and mind, the Skywalker who instructed Pythagoras; a very rare being.
George Lucas stole the nomenclature for his character.
And the living embodiment of “the dark side,” is represented by the “handful of dust,” herein (see below). For it represents the loss of ‘heaven.’
In old German, “heaven,” means the place of clouds, and plants make clouds.
Bottom line: nuanced intelligent understanding of a wider ecologically sound imprint persists, when we can find space inwardly for sufficient relevant attention.
“A heap of broken images, where the sun beats,
And the dead tree gives no shelter, the cricket no relief,
And the dry stone no sound of water. Only
There is shadow under this red rock,
(Come in under the shadow of this red rock),
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.”
