The Evolution of Power: From Ancient Roots to Modern Technology

The word "Power" traces its origins to the 9th-century Latin "Potere," with connections to Sanskrit and Greek. Over centuries, its meaning expanded, especially in the 12th century with the Anglo-Norman "Pouair," leading to today's concept of power as both physical force and social influence.

Today, power shapes our actions and impacts our environment. Our technological advancements pose both opportunities and threats. Balancing power with responsible "Permission" is crucial to ensuring our actions benefit humanity and our planet.
