### Excuse me?

Please clarify your comment. "force is anything and everything with energy/mass". what does that even mean?

I'm happy to debate physics with you, but come with better comments than "force is anything and everything with energy/mass". That shows a specific lack of understanding of physics.

Lets start with what "force" actually is. Wikipedia's definition is a good place to start:
In physics, a force is any influence that causes an object to undergo a certain change, either concerning its movement, direction, or geometrical construction. In other words, a force can cause an object with mass to change its velocity (which includes to begin moving from a state of rest), i.e., to accelerate, or a flexible object to deform, or both. Force can also be described by intuitive concepts such as a push or a pull. A force has both magnitude and direction, making it a vector quantity. It is measured in the SI unit of newtons and represented by the symbol F.

Also, bear in mind that mass IS energy, shown by Einstein's famous equation E=MC2. Mass and energy can be configured into a usable force, but they are not force in and of themselves.

Here is a little more light reading on what "force" is.

That's all 'Physics 101' stuff.
Perhaps you would rather "stick with what you know". I do know physics, quite well actually.
