I'm sorry if I come across as stupid, but I've read the wiki page and can't find it.
It says that Darth Revan was 'reprogrammed', even though he's human. This just doesn't make sense to me, any help would be appreciated. This is probably going to make somebody angry, because it's probably in the wiki somewhere, but as I say, I've looked a few times and can't find it.
You're thinking of "reprogramming" in terms of computers, which is incorrect here. Reprogramming is also a psychology thing. One can manipulate a person's mind using various techniques. Psychiatrists use it (sometimes called "deprogramming") to rescue people who've been brainwashed by cults. In this case, the Jedi used the Force to suppress Revan's memories and by extension change his personality.

So does this mean that Revan did not willingly revert back to the Jedi?
Not at first, but once he regains his memories he actively chooses to remain a Jedi (assuming you follow the light side path). DD97Which bear is best? 16:26, October 28, 2011 (UTC)
Is Darth Revan a metaphor for engine? Engines are revan. Isn't that what engines do? Engines can be reprogrammed to change. 22.214.171.124 00:06, November 25, 2011 (UTC)
(nevermind the fact that I think this is a joke) You must be thinking of engines "revving" or "revvin'" (slang) their RPM's up, which is simply in this case a play on words and not a metaphor.--CT-1987 14:54, December 1, 2011 (UTC)
I agree with CT-1987. It's a very far-fetched and strange question.MaxReebo 17:49, December 1, 2011 (UTC)
This seems to be some odd comparison of two different things that can change. This might be some weird metaphor that I don't know about that does not make any sense. 126.96.36.199 00:50, December 2, 2011 (UTC)
