Sidious would have had to discover a way to compel midichlorians to do
his bidding, and bring into being one as powerful as Anakin. As it was,
Sidious and a host of medical droids had merely restored Anakin to life,
which-while no small feat-was a far cry from returning someone from death.
For thousands of years, the ability to survive death had been pursued by
Sith and Jedi alike, and no one had been successful at discovering the
secret. Beings had been saved from dying, but no one had cheated death. The
most powerful of the ancient Sith Lords had known the secret, but it had
been lost or, rather, misplaced. Now that the galaxy was his to rule, there
was nothing to prevent Sidious, too, from unlocking that mystery.
