Other terms for Life-Force
Users can create, shape and manipulate life-force, the fundamental force that allows life to appear/exist, grow and flourish throughout the universe. They can control their own personal life-force that dwells within them, allowing them to achieve untold power and great abilities considered to be beyond that of normal beings. Users use physical, spiritual, and mental powers to control their life force.
The concept of life force is a concept closely related to the concept of power. Energy is the most basic need. Every living thing needs energy to live and take action in any way. And power is the ability or capacity to do something or act in a particular way. That is why it can be said that this power is the basis and origin of all other forces. All other forces are various, different, or similar variations of this force.
