Re: Star Wars: How Did Yoda Know about the Rule of Two?

The only thing in the films that suggests it might be a problem is that only Sith are ever seen using it - Palpatine and Dooku. It seems pretty clear that Force lightning would be a manifestation of the Dark Side since it causes excruciating pain, and that isn't exactly something the Jedi would typically seek to inflict.

The Yoda example doesn't quite work as any sort of evidence that Light Side practitioners may also use Force lightning, since he doesn't generate it himself but merely collects and redirects it at the enemy who first used it.
