The Living Force of Gottfried Leibniz The Living Force = Mass x Speed² or E=MC²
The idea of a Living Force was the theory of Gottfried Leibniz that there is a creative force. The theory was eventually absorbed into the modern theory of energy. But it is interesting to think that if the idea had be maintained instead of having E=MC² energy equals mass times the speed of light squared we would have had the Living Force equals mass times the speed of light squared. This would have changed our outlook of the Universe and our place within it totally. For with the belief in a creative force or Vis Viva comes the questions what can be achieved what are the possibilities and opportunities within creation!
