Triad of nature, forces and integrity of each life form repeat even where each constituent is taken apart. Sodium in a table salt for instance has its uniqueness.

Sodium chloride, or table salt, easily dissolves in water. Both are ionic in nature, so the compound will dissociate into ions in water. An ion is an atom or molecule that has a net electrical charge. Since the charge of the electron is equal and opposite to that of the proton,

Atom has its own character. An ion is as distinct as atom. This has great bearing on the visible world as it appears to us. A cation is a positively charged ion, with fewer electrons than protons, while an anion is negatively charged, with more electrons than protons. Because of their opposite electric charges, cations and anions attract each other and readily form ionic compounds. This attraction at it basic level we see in gravity and magnetism. We may also include our preference for others owe to the chemical nature of material world.
