to use an attractor

1. Lay down a metaball SOP
2. Append a point SOP
3. Lay down a POP Network, wiring the point into the POPnet's first input.
4. Jump inside, and add a location POP, then append an attractor POP
5. On the birth tab of the location, change Const. Activation to 0 and impulse activation to 1
(with the impulse birth rate being above 0)
6. On the attractor tab of the attractor, change Geometry Source to First Contexted Geometry.
6. On the point SOP, Force tab, change Keep Radius to Add Radius.
7. When the Radial F is positive or negative value is attracting, or repelling.

Overview of Parameters:
1. POPnet/attractor/AttractorTab/Geometry Source = this is for the metaball, or attracting force
2. POPnet/attractor/AttractorTab/Scale = this scales the amount the charge is affecting the particles
3. Point SOP/ForceTab/Radius = the radius of the force of the metaball
4. PointSOP/ForceTab/Radial F = the amount of charge; Radial F(orces)
