According to Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Force "is an energy field created by all living things [that] surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together." This exact definition is repeated throughout the Star Wars franchise by Luke and Yoda in the films, and Ahsoka in The Mandalorian, but beyond that (and a few Force-centric episodes of The Clone Wars and Rebels), fans of the world's greatest space opera weren't given much to go on in terms of the Force's parameters in both scope and power.
Of course, this is by design so Lucasfilm and creative luminaries can have a massive sandbox to play in, but it doesn't mean that fans of the galaxy far, far, away aren't going to speculate to their hearts' content.
