a Will is a document by which a person gives instructions as to what is to happen upon that person's death in so far as property and their remains are concerned. It is a formal set of instructions to those people whom the testator (the person making the will) wishes to carry out his or her instructions (the executors). In most cases it must be in writing, made while the person is of sound mind and body and signed in the presence of two witnesses who must themselves sign the document also. Wills can be deceptively simple documents and should only be made by those who know what they are doing since the person making the will won't be around at the time it comes into effect.

In the common law, a will or testament is a document by which a person (the testator) regulates the rights of others over his or her property or family after death. For the devolution of property not disposed of by will, see inheritance and intestacy. In the strictest sense, "will" is a general term, while "testament" applies only to dispositions of personal property (this distinction is seldom observed).
Will is an upcoming comedy film expected to be released sometime in 2008. The movie revolves around Will, an average man who lives in a world where scribes in Heaven write people's lives and destiny. One day, Will finds out that his scribe has quit and he has to live his life without a script.
The power of choosing; the faculty or endowment of the soul by which it is capable of choosing; the faculty or power of the mind by which we decide to do or not to do; the power or faculty of preferring or selecting one of two or more objects.
As an auxiliary, will is used to denote futurity dependent on the verb. Thus, in first person, "I will" denotes willingness, consent, promise; and when "will" is emphasized, it denotes determination or fixed purpose; as, I will go if you wish; I will go at all hazards. In the second and third persons, the idea of distinct volition, wish, or purpose is evanescent, and simple certainty is appropriately expressed; as, "You will go," or "He will go," describes a future event as a fact only. To emphasize will denotes (according to the tone or context) certain futurity or fixed determination.
the principle of volition that controls the inner vehicles. The lowest octave of the will is anchored in the ego, and is referred to as willfulness, rebellion, or desire-driven will. The next octave of the will is anchored in the etheric body of the Metaconscious mind, links the activity of the Metaconscious and Subconscious minds, and governs habit. The third octave of will is rules the entire personality, and is referred to as choice, goal-setting, self-direction, the skillful will, or the intelligent will. Several higher octaves of will operate in the Superconscious mind. These Superconscious octaves of will are coordinated by the Transpersonal Will of the Soul. The will is at the foundation of behavior, the directed intelligent activities of cognition, and use of the innate abilities of the individual.
The power of control the mind has over whether, or to what degree, to engage the striving instincts. Although an intellectual awareness of the need to employ these instincts or an affective concern for their use may exist, free will makes that determination. See Levels of Effort.
One of the Four Faculties, originally termed ‘Ego' in the Automatic Script (a borrowing from Madame Blavatsky rather than from the English translators of Freud). It represents the life-force in a relatively basic form, the will to continue. Without Mask it has no aim, but with the appropriate focus becomes the creative force. The Will is not always the dominant Faculty but is the one which determines the Phase in which a person is located, so that a those of Phase 17 have their Will at Phase 17, although the other Faculties are located elsewhere.
In sociology, will is a concept introduced by Ferdinand TÃ¶nnies in "Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft", 1887. TÃ¶nnies' approach was very much indebted to Spinoza's dictum voluntas atque intellectus unum et idem sunt ("will as well as ratio are one and the same"), and to Arthur Schopenhauer.
Will (probably born in the 1650s or 1660s) was an Indian of the Misquito tribe from what is now Honduras or Nicaragua. In history, he is known for having stayed as a castaway on uninhabited Robinson Crusoe Island, the largest of the archipelago of the Juan Fernandez Islands, for more than three years. Perhaps he was the model for Friday, the famous fictitious character (cannibal) created by Daniel Defoe in Robinson Crusoe.
