What does it mean to say that “energy spread” and “matter spread” are driving forces in chemical reactions?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The term energy spread, and matter spread should be explained as driving forces in the chemical reactions.

Concept Introduction:

The whole content in the universe can be categorized as energy and matter. The main difference is that the matter can be physically observable and touched whereas the energy is not. Any process that occurs in the world would associate the interaction of energy with matter. Observation of certain processes have led the scientists to figure out a certain trend during these interactions that would make processes spontaneously possible.

Explanation

Generally spontaneous processes must have energy spread and matter spread to drive it. Energy concentration would inhibit the occurrence of a natural spontaneous process but if the process involves matter spread, then that process could still occur. Also, in the other direction if matter is not spread, still there is a possibility of occurrence for a given process is energy is spread...
