You’re the Best Particle of Me

Did you know that Intelligently Designed quantum physics provides matchmaking services? You didn’t? Well, recently, I read…
”…that in reality two electrons can really fit into the same energy level because they can have opposite spins. This means that they can both fit into the lowest (symmetric) energy level and, crucially, this level decreases in energy as the atoms get closer together. This means that it is energetically favorable for two distant atoms to move closer. And this is what happens in nature.”
And God saw that it was not good for atom to be alone.
(Two electrons, opposite spins? The atoms get closer together? Yin and Yang, Matter and anti-matter. Grace and nature. Male and female. This fundamental symmetry makes sense at the atomic level and also at the nuclear family level. Hence the mating song “I’ve Got You Under My Spectrascope.”)
“…This preference for two atoms to stick together as a result of sharing their electrons between them is known as a covalent bond.”…
And the preference for two humans (Mr. Spin up and Ms. Spin down) to stick together as a result of sharing their lives in the molecule of marriage is known as intimate bonding.
“…covalent bonding is the reason that you are not a bunch of atoms sloshing around in a featureless blob.”
This explains a lot about my love life! I’ve got your atomic number, buddy.
Matchmaker, Matchmaker make me a match. A little covalence bonding is all I ask.
The above quotes from Chapter Eight, Interconnected, from:

You should know that…
Covalent bonding is universal:
