Anakin's Training: Implications of a High Midichlorian Count

The minimum midichlorian count for a Jedi was 5,000 and to have over 15,000, it was said you had to be born of the Force. Anakin has over 20,000.

This interests me in terms of his childhood at the Temple. Anakin was at least 2 to 4 times more powerful than all of the Forcefuls in the Temple. I would imagine that once his training began, there would have been trouble. Where most people took months of meditation to learn proper telekinesis, Anakin probably struggled not to throw objects and hurt people unintentionally. When Anakin was taught how to warm something with the Force, he set it on fire. He burned himself trying to raise his temperature. I imagine meditation was so difficult for him because he heard so much. He was probably overwhelmed and easily distracted by what he felt but didn’t know how to control or channel. It probably scared him

Even more intriguing is the question: Was he separated from others for their own safety? Did he believe he was dangerous, difficult, unnatural? I imagine the other initiates kept their distance. Was he pulled from normal classes?

Many that live deserve death. Many that die deserve life.

SGT Joshua P. Rodgers and SGT Cameron H Thomas, both from 3/75, were KIA in Nangahar province, Afghanistan on April 27, 2017, during combat operations.

The 75th took a devastating hit with the loss of two great Rangers, but their sacrifice was not in vein. Around 20+ EKIA during the TIC and around 50 EKIA via airstrikes after exfil.

Rest easy. Rangers Lead The Way.
