If water and fire manipulation is Hydro- and PyroKinesis, time manipulation Chronokinesis, then what is the following called, example is :

Using your brute force / power only to actually crush a boulder, out from your physical reach, into small pieces.

Question is, what is this -kinesis called ?

Kinesis is the act of using your mind to move/control something. Pyro=Fire, Kinesis=Move with your mind, so Pyrokinesis is moving fire with your mind. Using brute force(assuming your mean your body) would not be using only your mind and so it would not be a kinesis. That could, however, be called "mind over matter" considering the average size of a human and the size I imagine a boulder to be, in which case I consider it a form of visualization.

Moving earth (rocks, plants, dirt, etc) would be "geokinesis", but as Ragnorok says, it is with your mind, not your body.

actually it's terrakinetic if it deals with earth. using raw force is psychokinetic.

"Geo" is Greek, and "terra" is Latin; "terrakinesis" is a weird mix of Greek-Latin (because "kinesis" is Greek too).

Kikuyo, that is probably the best statement you could say against terrakinesis being a proper term. Congratulations for that. I was in a long debate about whether or not terrakinesis was a correct term(I was among those saying it was since it is the term I've used) and nobody ever mentioned that, however mixing languages isn't entirely as improper as it is odd and perhaps complicated so I suppose that statement could still be considered debatable to some degree.

Anyways, regardless of whether or not it's proper, it would still translate to moving the earth(or earth-related materials) with your mind.

I forgot to say, Egoslum, terrakinesis means the same thing as geokinesis and as Kikuyo pointed out geo would be more proper due to origins. Psychokinesis, if my sleep-deprived mind is not failing me, would be moving the mind with the mind and so would probably be called "redundant" I think. Using brute force, by assumption according to the terms used, would be a physical thing and thus not any form of kinesis at all.
