Expression of Will

Force and Power:
Force is a measure of our ability to change, internal or external states.
Power is a measure of our ability to exert this force over time.
Force and Power both measure kinetic expressions of will.




Example 1:
I can spend money on a single purchase using my economic force. I can also spend money on purchase after purchase and you will feel my economic power.

Example 2:
When we see young couples showing affection we see an expression of will, the force of love; passion. When we see a married couple showing affection we also see an expression of will, the power of love; commitment.


Example 3:
Military Force: Bombing an enemy.
Military Power: Funding a long running war.
