Please post the different names of the Force. I would love to know a name for what the Force represents in all languages, cultures and time periods.

Every religion, philosophy, belief and culture has a name for something that the Force represent. I like the Force because it is void of tradition. It is free from history, culture and orthodoxy. It is my own. It is our own. I get to define it based on my awareness of it. All definitions of the Force are accurate to the person defining it.

Here is a list of names of the Force from other systems that I have found.
(I will repost this as a thread so people can add to it. I would like to know a name for the Force in as many languages, cultures and time periods as possible)

I wouldn't say these are all equivalent to the Force. However, they are attempts to name and describe the larger structure of the universe, whether as an intelligent being or something else. Good list!
