In science, flow is the movement of matter or energy per unit time per unit area.

In hmolscience, flow can refer to a number of movement or energy characterizations; including: "psychological" flow, Gibbs energy flow, thermodynamic flow, or even the flow of human molecules in bulk, such as on a busy expressway, as studied in human chemistry. [1]

Mental flow
See main: Csíkszentmihályi flow
In psychodynamics, Csíkszentmihályi flow or simply “flow” is a state of focused, engaged, and optimal mental activity, quantified by energy and entropy measures, in which a sense of timelessness and outputs of great productivity emerge. [2]

The following are related quotes:

“All energy flows according to the whims of the great magnet. What a fool I was to defy him.”
— Hunter Thompson (1971), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (ΡΊ); favorite author Patrick Fergus
