Thats what you seem to believe Legendoom .....  Its not what is actually happening in real life , or how you can make a "piece of light , formed in a blade pattern" to cut through  Metal , Flesh and whatnot  with perfect precision and NOT melt it down ... Quite Frankly , we just migh see a Ligh - saber , that DOES not CUT , just makes visible light in an interesting shape and color ....  O_O

wtf; a dude named "LUKE_N" discovers the light saber...Really? was he aided by his father first the find dark mater aka the dark force then space warp is possible now the saber is coming was star-wars a coming attraction as a true story for our future? are there jedi schools hidden away on the moon?>

I don't suppose that it matters that lightsabers aren't made of actual light? The blade on one of them isn't made of photons; its made of plasma caught in a superconducting loop, trapped by a force field and moving at tremendously high speeds and with a tremendous amount of energy.

I knew it! To quote Mr. Burns: " And to think that those guys down at radio shack laughed at me, well who's laughing now"?!

This is by far the worst misrepresented news item people have been talking about in the last year, or few years even. The events that are occurring ares nothing at all like what a lightsaber would require or how a lightsaber supposedly functions. As far as I know Lukin is just comparing two photons interacting with two lightsabers interacting, which obviously has nothing to do with lightsabers, it's just an analogy.
