The "questions" GL alludes to are about the mysteries of life and spirituality. The Force and the sith are archetypal(the pretentious like to call them Jungian) idioms, characterising good and evil.

In post Vietnam USA in 1977, who the "good guys" and "bad guys" were wasnt so clear to the average movie going teen. GLs space opera reinvented heroes that fit into this classical outline. It paid off for him in spectacular fashion = $$$

But all this is extremely obvious, but if it intrugues you, what the hey
