Main Question or Discussion Point
i know that all matter "wants" to go to least potential energy state. the big question is WHY?

Uh yeah... right... I think I'll let myself out of this train wreck of a thread. You morons have fun.
that sounds like circular reasoning to me. any elastic principle already depends on the fact that matter tries to occupy lowest energy states.it might be due to the fact that space is essentially either flat, or of a set curvature, and since energy would distort that curvature, an elastic principle wants all points to go to the least possible energy state
