If you’re a Star Wars fan like I am, you know all about The Force and its important role in the universe. Now, what if I told you, that it was scientifically proven The Force & midi-chlorians are real? If you’re confused on what I’m talking about, strap in, because this information is about to blow your mind.
First, let me explain what midi-chlorians are. According to Qui-Gon Jinn, midi-chlorians are “microscopic yet intelligent life forms, that reside within the cells of all living organisms”. They have a symbiotic relationship with the organism that hosts them, and can facilitate a connection with the force if many are present. Midi-chlorians serve as a “link between the Living Force and the Cosmic Force”. 
Now, let’s talk about The Force. According to Wookieepedia, The Force is “an energy field that [connects] every living thing in the galaxy”. There are actually two different kinds: the Living Force and the Cosmic Force. The Living Force is what can be controlled by Jedi, and the Cosmic Force (also known as the will of The Force) is what holds the galaxy together. In the Star Wars universe, “the Living Force was made up of all living things in the galaxy. The energy it created fed into the Cosmic Force. The Cosmic Force was how the Jedi or Sith claimed to know the will of The Force. It communicated to them through visions, dreams, or meditation”. 
You might be thinking: okay that’s cool and all, but why do I care? Well believe it or not, it has been scientifically proven that The Force exists.
Einstein theorized there was an equation to explain the inter-connective force we feel around us. Unfortunately, he passed away before he was able to solve his theory. Physicist Peter Higgs theorized in 1964 that Einstein was unable to find it, because it was not equation but a particle! In 2012, scientists were able to recreate conditions using a Large Hadron Collider to officially discover the Higgs Boson particle (midi-chlorian?). The existence of this particle proves that the Higgs Field (The Force) is real. The Higgs Field is a Mexican hat shaped scalar field that follows the standard model. It exists everywhere throughout the universe, similarly to The Force. 
Could it be that the energy of the Big Bang dissipated the Higgs Boson particle, turning it into a scalar energy field that exists all throughout the universe? Did George Lucas really create a fictional world, or did he just show us our own? It’s up to you to decide. Science already has.
