Or are we all here according to someone else's grand scheme, completely unaware of the pawns we really are...? I once read it about one certain Grand Admiral, "He could manuever you into doing exactly what he wanted you to do, despite the fact that you knew he was trying to do it...Perfectly calm, perfectly in control, three steps ahead of you the whole way. No one else but Thrawn."
Eek! I think we're in trouble now.
