                      Ummm actually, Palpatine didn't create Anakin at least directly, the Force sensed they were meddling with midiclorians to create a chosen one, and in return the Force itself created his own in the person of Anakin

                        Palpatine's ghost was picked up by Kirk and placed in a photon torpedo case.. After a few choice words, he was fired onto Endor again(?) and the experience so shook him, he grew a new body..

                                                  The secret jedi texts are destroyed and the last jedi "luke" died only ghosts remaining .Thats why luke said jedi must END. I believe a new order will rise with the name Skywalkers a new "jedi" order with rey as mentor.she will bring balance to the force.

                                                    Spoiler: This is it! I put it together. It is perfect. Combines everything, explains everything, defeats everything, safes everything. The ultimate fraud, deceiving everyone. The true 9-Movie Story Arc.

                                                    "Have you ever heard the tragedy of Darth Plagueis? He could see the future, but could not prevent his own death. Together we might master that."
                                                    George Lukas once had the idea, that the Emperor manipulated the force and fathered Anakin/DarthVader that way across the Galaxy , but he dropped that idea. He also wanted to deceive everyone with JarJar Binx being a SithLord, but he dropped that idea, when nobody liked JarJar.

                                                    The emperor really did achieve that goal, he cheated death. When he fell down the Deathstar, he did not die, because he vanished himself short before death and made himself reincarnate as a girl at a different place, preventing his death in fathering himself in disguise.
                                                    Thats why Rey is a MarySue and not afraid of the darkness in the cave below Lukes Island.

                                                    Snoke:"I can see you striking her down." -> Snoke gets striked down. Snoke = her = altered darkforce projection of Rey, thats why Snoke has no story. When Luke looks into Kylo Rens dream he can only see darkness, because Rey is manipulating Kylos dream, and it is her what Luke sees.

                                                    First: Anakin Skywalker rised and sacrificed himself and defeated his darkness.
                                                    Second: Luke Skywalker rised and sacrificed himself and defeated his "darkness".
                                                    Third: Ben Skywalker will rise and sacrifice himself and defeat his darkness.

                                                    Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker:
                                                    This will bring the saga to its end and the Emperor will finally be defeated. In the trailer you hear Luke "1000 Generations within you, thats your fight" and see Rey, but thats to fool you. He is talking to Kylo Ren, the true bloodline. Kylo will realise, that he has been manipulated by Rey all the time. Ben Skywalker will rise again, defeating KyloRen, and in the last ultimate battle he will sacrifice himself and die when he finally kills Rey and defeats feminism.

                                                    Yep thats the only way to safe StarWars and DaisyRidley once said, that she is no real Jedi.. It would be a surprising change at the end, would put things in a different perspective when viewed again, create an arc from 1 to 9 and fullfill the Emperors attempt to master death.
                                                    Rey has no struggle at all and got everything sticked up her arse. Kylo must be the hero.

                                                    What do you think?

And Luke didn’t really go out and discover new locations where the Jedi had set up temples. The book was really brutally honest. So it doesn’t do legends or cannon. Thank sucks.
