I don't know if this is the correct forum but here goes ,

Every molecular program i have seen has visuals that show molecules as beads
or shapes floating in "space" .

What is the "space" ?

If , in a cell or cell organelle , I imagine a matrix or some medium that
all the molecules , h20 and structures "sit" in .
The strains of bonds between atoms , in molecules , must be mainly because
of the "space" and not the atoms actions .
Would the structure , physical actions , and gravities of this "space" not
be the main knowledge
 to protein folding ?
