Remembering from high school physics class, energy has steps from still to moving. There is the potential energy and kinetic energy describing the stillness to movement. The two have a relationship with each other. If there is an increase to potential energy, there is an increase to kinetic energy. This also goes with decrease vice versa. However, if there is none, than there is none. Each of us have a potential within us.
