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.
Confidence and Restraint:
- Self restraint is a fettering of will, both its force and its power.
- Self confidence is an unfettering of our kinetic expression.
- The ability to express our will is limited; confidence spends what restraint refunds.
- A dominance of confidence maximizes the force and power of our expression.
- A dominance of restraint conserves this potential; delayed maximization.
- The regulation of our will avoids homeostasis, seeking a dominant influence for each moment.
- Regulation providing consistent dominance leads to the maximization of individual power.
- Regulation tolerating conflict leads to the progressive attenuation of our expressive capabilities.
- Failure to regulate will into dominant states wastes the individual gifts of energy.
- Success in this regulation can leverage a paucity of energy into an influential expression of will.
- We can increase our energy measure and production rate to an extent limited by our condition.
- We can perfect our regulative ability to an extent limited by our circumstance and experience.
- We can do neither perfectly (i.e. IZEO), force is not exerted in a vacuum, and our understandings are limited by short lives and received childhoods.
- While perfection is delusion and as a goal a sickness, its nearness is a desire innate within us, and cannot be healthily set aside.
- We continue to draw near, valuing progress over perfection.
- We can increase and perfect, living dominantly and without conflict.
