Why does electric discharge occur?
That's all fine, just one question - WHY?
Why do the negative and positive charges need to ''find'' each other, and move towards each other aka discharge? So the negative charges need to do what? Move to find the positive, and then what happens? both disappear? The cloud was net neutral i.e. both negative and positive charges were present, so why when they get separated, they need to ''collide'' with each other? why did they not do that while they were neutral in the first place?
