i don't like star wars, but my father used to collect the stuff. the force appears to be something that light-saber wielding Jedi knights can channel to use somewhat magical powers. i know they can move things with the force, and some can shoot lightning. sorry if i got anything wrong to all of the star wars buffs out there.

It is described by Obi-Wan Kenobi in the original Star Wars film as, "An energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the galaxy together."

The Force is a binding, magical and ubiquitous power that is the object of the Jedi and Sith monastic orders.

The Force is largely based on the Tao.
The Tao is the natural 'way' of the universe. There is a flow, a life-flow that binds all things together, and helps us to understand the natural way of all things.
This is the Tao.

The Jedi and others refer to two sides of the Force, a dark side and a light side. This echoes the concept of Yin Yang in Eastern philosophy, but is not a straight translation, as the emotional dark side is denoted as a Force of evil by the Jedi. The dark side is not made up of specific "parts" or "abilities" of the Force: the dark and light sides of the Force exist inside of the life form which uses it, made from their emotions. George Lucas compared the light and dark sides to the processes of symbiosis and cancer. A follower of the light side tries to live in harmony with those around him. Mutual trust, respect, and the ability to form alliances give the Jedi their distinct advantage over the Sith. In contrast, a follower of the dark side is only interested in him- or herself. To strike down a living creature with the Force out of anger, fear or another emotion is of the dark side. To refrain and clear one's self of these emotions is of the light side. Use of the dark side of the Force is forbidden within the Jedi Order, and is strictly considered the domain of the Sith

As per Yoda:
Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.
Or, with the introduction of the prequels:
(Taken from a Robot Chicken spoof, but it's accurate)
Darth Vader: And the Force? Why, that's just microscopic bacteria in your blood called midichlorians.
Luke: Look, if you're not going to take this seriously, I'm out.

That is precisely what it is. In fact, Lucas based his idea of the force on the concept of Chi, even as he based the Jedi on some of the warrior sects of china and Japan, most notably the Samurai and the Shaolin warriors.
