    Energy levels of the electron orbitals, or shells, as well as the "completeness" of each orbital, distance to nucleus, etc.

    That would require someone understanding the elemental nature of matter. Different elements in the universe simply have different reactions to one another. We know how these reactions manifest themselves, but we don't exactly know why.
