Zen in Star Wars

Keep your concentration here and now.
--- Qui-Gon Jinn, in Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace
directed by George Lucas, 1999

Zen monks believe that the future can never be seen & the prediction of the future makes a false illusion. They never remember the past & predict the future. They concentrate at the very present time. It seems that there was the same belief in a galaxy in a long time ago, far, far away:
Qui-Gon Jinn
Don't center on your anxieties, Obi-Wan. Keep your concentration here and now, where it belongs.
