Molecular Theory explains that the characteristics of molecules are what determines whether an object is a solid, a liquid, or a gas. This recently discovered Axiom, however, replaces this primitive belief.
The diagram shows that at the most fundamental level of matter, the awesome particles are aligned differently and connected with different types of awesome energy bonds. The arrangement and type of these awesome energy bonds is what causes the matter they comprise to align itself into a solid, a liquid, or a gas. Further, without these awesome energy bonds holding the awesome particles inside quarks together, all matter would instantaneously dissolve into a uniform subatomic sludge.
