Heres a question about TLJ that's been driving me nuts lately: if midichlorians are symbiotic cells within the body that act as a conduit between the person and the force, how could Luke manipulate his own midichlorians to cut himself off from the force?  How the heck did he separate himself from himself at the cellular level?

A lot of what you saw in TLJ was “borrowed” (more or less) from the original EU series.




I find your arguments vague and unconvincing.

Quiet! *Slap* And there’s a fresh one if you mouth off again.

But this is the only known instance of someone cutting themselves off from the force in 'Disney' canon, right?

I haven’t been reading any of the newer books, so I can’t say for sure. My point is it isn’t necessarily  “out of the blue”.
