Add a great power word to your vocabulary: "momentum" has many strong, important meanings.

In physics:

The property or tendency of a moving object to continue moving. For an object in linear motion along a line, the momentum is the mass of the object multiplied by its velocity, which is further defined as linear momentum. Thus a slowly moving, very massive body, and a rapidly moving, lighter body can both possess the same momentum.

Merriam Webster defines the meaning of momentum as:

1. The strength or force that something exerts while it is moving. 2. The strength or force that allows something to continue moving. 3. The tendency of an object's motion to grow stronger or faster as time passes.

In philosophy:

A timeless point wherein decision is freely made without apprehension, unreflectively, and directly integrated. No longer subject or object, nor observer and observed. A phenomenon, an awareness without parts, without summation.
