I have a small question about Star Wars: The Last Jedi but it is really important to understanding Force projections. Why is it that Kylo picks up the golden dice and then they fade? Shouldn’t his hands have just gone through then like his lightsaber into Luke?
An in universe answer is required.
Please don’t bring up Obi-Wan sitting on the log in Episode V because that is different.
Side note: why can Leia hold them and put them down also if they are just a projection?
Edited Notes: After carefully watching The Last Jedi and reading the novelization I have some notes. The novelization and movie don’t conclusively say that Yoda hit Luke with the cane. I believe Luke’s reaction is just being startled by Yoda trying to hit him. The novelization says “the little Jedi master reached out with his cane, to rap Luke’s nose with it” IT DOES NOT SAY HE ACTUALLY PHYSICALLY HIT LUKE. The novelization only explains what happened in the movie about the dice and doesn’t expand on why Kylo can pick them up.
