The projection of oneself was the ability to seemingly appear in one place while actually being elsewhere, a feat possible through the Force. The ability allowed the user to physically interact with their surroundings, despite not being physically present. The nature of it being only a projection allowed one to appear as if performing seemingly impossible feats, such as appearing unscathed after taking a barrage of blaster bolts, or disappearing from one position and then reappearing in another. It also allowed one to project something other than their true physical appearance, such as making oneself appear younger, or appearing to have an object not currently in their possession. Despite being otherwise immaterial, they were at least capable of physical contact with others.
In 34 ABY, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker was able to project his appearance from Ahch-To to Crait, where he confronted his nephew, Kylo Ren, during the Battle of Crait. The feat was so strenuous that the prolonged use of the Force led to Skywalker's death, after which he became one with the Force. He carried a copy of Han Solo's dice with him that he left with Leia, who left it at the old Rebel Base on the planet for Kylo to find, causing it to vanish when Ren found it, which was shortly after Luke had died.
