Not Just an Excuse to Post a Picture of My Boyfriend Ewan...

Jack: Draw Obi-Wan.
Me: Okay.
Jack: No! Draw Ben instead.
Me: Obi-Wan and Ben are the same guy.
Jack: No, I want Ben. Not Obi-Wan.
Me: They’re the same guy.
Jack: ….
Me: Okay, what’s your name?
Jack: Luke.
Me: Um, when you’re not being Luke, what’s your name?
Jack: Jack!
Me: But sometimes, I also call you Cub, right?
Jack: Yeah.
Me: So, your name is Jack, but sometimes you’re called Cub. It’s like that with him – his name is Obi-Wan, but he’s sometimes called Ben.
Jack: …
Me: I just blew your mind, didn’t I?
Jack: Yeah.

I have to agree with Jack; Ben and Obi-wan are not the same person. I think Jack is picking up on the nuances in this complex character, particularly visible in Episode IV, when Ben appears as a decrepid old man, until he sits up a little taller, his face changes, and he becomes Obi-wan. Obi-wan is a jedi master. Ben is just some weird lonely guy who lives down the street.
