Accurate representation of the force first need to be identified. In the Form of the philosophy in that the force is the life force and the source of the universes power. Or the use of the Force in the the metaclorin count. If in the former than the force is just that, the binding energy through the universe. As to the individual use of the force it is limited to their prowess, concentration, and mind. More or less in the balance of the traditional Taoist philosophy. The more open and understanding the mind to the use of the force the greater the user. However if we are going based on the metaclorin count nonsense then the potential of any given force user is preset to that individual and seems to imply a certain amount of potential per person oppose to the former where every individual with the right mindset can reach maximum potential. But lets face the facts in that use of the Force is much like any talent in the real world. Some are prodigious, others need to work hard to attain the skill. Some can reach mastery, while others fall shortly after they begin. But the representation of the force is in my honest opinion like Bruce Lee's talk of water. In Bruce Lee's terms water is a boundless form much like the force. It is just energy constantly moving and changing.

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”
― Bruce Lee
