For those of you who don't know, in the novel Revan, there is a planet called Nathema. It is completely devoid of all living things as well as The Force after a ritual performed by Tenebrae and hundreds of other Sith. In the novel, it is described as similar to the void of space in that Meetra Surik was struggling to prevent herself from (presumably) diffusing so as to fill the Force Void with the midichlorians inside her (this is partly a presumption as its not made clear whether this is the case). So who do people think would last longer there, Luke Skywalker - the most powerful Jedi ever - or someone weaker in The Force such as Scout?

Bare in mind that in voids of matter, if enough matter is present it will group together due to gravity so this could happen in a Force void but it wasn't clear how far the analogy went.

I'd guess a droid would last the longest :p

in seriousness, probably... General grievous. But on channel of Force Users, someone like Scout it probably more likel.y

@guttridgeb: Non Force-sensitives, droids, etc.

Grievous probably would last as long as an ordinary droid. Basically anybody who can't feel the Void and is not frightened of nihilistic annihilation.

@ShootingNova @JamesKM716 thats what I though originally but that surely if large amounts of the Force filled Force voids the void would have been filled already. I don't know, I'm just curious as to what others think.

@guttridgeb: I don't know what you are talking about.... the Void is never filled. It is constantly attempting to feed on others' energies.

@ShootingNova: That was my thinking He can't feel the Force, and could last indefinitely.

@JamesKM716: Eventually though, the absolute nothingness could drive him insane. Usually a perfect, 100% droid would be the answer, because it could last forever, though there is always a chance of malfunction.

@ShootingNova: But he'd still be alive if he went insane. And he's unlikely to malfunction like a normal droid would.

@JamesKM716: But there is always that hidden 0.00001% kind of stuff that will eventually come out. Since he is not fully droid, he could die/malfunction over time.

@ShootingNova: True true, but that seems like it'd be just as likely to happen to a droid as it would Grievous.

@JamesKM716: Yep, but actual droids don't have any chance of organically dying.

@ShootingNova: Does Grievous? i suppose his heart could literally break....

@JamesKM716: Haha, LOL.

@ShootingNova: My apologies, I assumed that the void in the Force needed to be refilled (for want of a better term). Did I misread that bit?

@guttridgeb: Yes, but it can't be "refilled".
