    "Neo, here's the deal.

    Right now your body is asleep and your mind is attached to a super computer where everything you are seeing, hearing, touching, etc, right now is a virtual reality simulation. I have the ability to unplug this simulation and wake you up.

    However, be warned, when you wake up, the world is going to be this fucked up place, etc, etc. etc."

    vs

    "Sorry Neo, rules are rules... I have to show you"

    Why did Luke have to go into that cave and cut off Vadar's head only to realize it he own head that he cut off?

    It was Yoda's way of showing Luke how dangerous the Dark Side is, and that if he gave in to fear, he would become one of them

    That actually makes sense. He asked Yoda what was down there and Yoda replied "only what you take with you."
