what is happening at 55:56, I don't understand why he put the electron configuration levels (2p 2s 2s 1s 1s) next to the ionization energies

Thanks to Prof Goldwhite. Nearly two decades after I am studying chemistry during which chemistry subject was a nightmare but now I am able to understand chemistry through Prof Goldwhite. Thanks to website too for creating such a platform where most students can learn various subjects under one roof.

IT WILL BE GREAT IF INCLUDES LECTURES FOR EDUCATING CANDIDATES TOWARDS RESEARCH, VARIOUS COMPETITIVE EXAMS SUCH AS GAMSAT/MCAT. Because many candidates look for these sources and end up with limited source provider who extracts more money with limited information/knowledge output which is opposite to
