Opposites attract, you need to work to drive them apart. All that work can come to nothing if they relax and reunite back into an unproductive relationship. The goal of the earliest steps in photosynthesis is to use light energy to drive negative electrons from their beloved positive holes. Nature has evolved special protein structures that orchestrate the excited dance of these opposites so that there is near 100% efficient divorce rate. We'll explore its special dance floor and music that captures energy in broken relationships and drives life.
