i was under the impression that even in the star wars universe, planets were spheres of rock and magma...how can one be "sentient" like zonama sekot or yuuzhan'tar?

These examples are unique, in that they are not simply planets in the classical definition you give, but also imbued with consciousness and a life cycle. You might also want to look at Indobok, an example of a living world of more "local" origin. As to how this is possible... the Force is mysterious. Dangerdan97 06:54, March 2, 2010 (UTC)
As for the biochemistry of it, one could conceive of a plant or root network that, when viewed as a whole, might be very similar to a brain or a LAN. This would be the basis of the interconnected lifeforms in Avatar, and also the living Planet in the game Alpha Centauri (where the leading native plant, Xenofungus, forms a massive network and literally gives the planet consciousness and self-awareness.)

Sounds like your talking about Coruscant, during the brief period it was referred to as Yuuzhan'Tar. I sincerely doubt the original Yuuzhan'Tar would have tolerated a shaped abomination running it. Dangerdan97 04:10, March 3, 2010 (UTC)
so the planets either had a force-imbued consciousness, or some kind of massive sentient lifeform that controlled them? ASDF1239Discussion 04:18, March 3, 2010 (UTC)
