Now that my children are old enough, I’ve been gradually teaching them that there’s more to life than meets the eye. I have a master plan for gradually exposing the mysteries of the universe to them.
The first step is an introduction to the foundations of the mysteries. I’d introduce some rudamentary concepts, and have them repeat the ideas back to me, to make sure they get them right.
I’ve started with, “Obi Wan Kenobi is a good guy. He uses the Light side of the Force.” “Darth Vader is the bad buy. He uses the Dark Side of the Force.”
But whenever I ask them to repeat the sacred teachings back to me, I just get squeals of laughter and this:
“Obi Wan Kenobi lives on the light side of the forest.”
“Darth Vader lives in the dark side of the forest.”
