The forces are functions of the relative positions and orientations of the soap and water molecules.
The system is consistent with the deﬁnition of event-symmetry since it is invariant under exchange of any two water or soap molecules and therefore has an S (N ) ⊗ S (M ) symmetry where N and M are the number of water and soap molecules.
Events in the soap bubble model correspond to molecules rather than space-time points.
