A General Caution
This thread is fine so far, but I just wanted to step in before things spiraled out of control. Everyone should keep in mind that the Forum Guidelines require that you address rebuttals and strive to keep the discussion moving forward, but it should also be realized that moderators cannot micromanage a discussion, and that there are oftentimes little moderators can do to help a thread along. In other words, if you decide to debate in this thread, please keep your frustration in check.

Topic Advisory

Bingo. Force is in sorry need of redefinement in science. Perhaps we should consider the merit of other meanings of the word.
I have applied force to you of a very different kind. One that physical science currently can describe only in a very unmeaningful mechanical way. But never the less you have experienced the force I have applied and understand it as more than mechanical.
This is the same topic you introduced in the Do we affect the" physical " indepentent of the laws of physics thread. If you would like to discuss your "force of me" ideas please resume discussion in that thread rather than shifting the topic in this thread.

Re: Topic Advisory
I appreciate that you have a different opinion, but it is the moderator's task to keep discussions on topic. I rule the discussion of the inadequacy of the definition of force in physics to be off-topic for this thread. If you would like to discuss my ruling please take it to the General discussion of moderation procedures: The Consequtive Consecution Sequel thread.
