The tabular structure of the chemical elements is one every single person will recognise, but often not understand. Even from a distance one can distinguish it from its unique layout.
Furthermore, at some point either during school or at a quiz, those very elements have tested our memory. A test we often fail.
But what if the periodic table became more relevant to the structure of story?
By organising the elements into story atoms, one can combine just a handful of them to create one molecule of story.
Consequently, these can be used as the very building blocks of storytelling itself.
