Atoms have no foresight, no interests, no hopes; they are just tine places where there is happening, not doing. But that doesn't stop us from simplifying our vision of them by treating them as if they were agents, very simple, single-minded agents. That carbon atom clings tenaciously to those two oxygen atoms, preventing them from wandering off, forming a persistent molecule of carbon dioxide - a modest task for a carbon atom. Other carbon atoms play more exciting roles holding together gigantic mega-atom proteins, so that the proteins can do their thing, whichever thing it is.
