What is the meaning of static in public static void main?

As i read static means that it stores that thing in one memory location only but i coudn't understand the reason behind using it in main function. I read so many answers online but seriously saying i coudn't understand anything somewhere it is written something other place something else. can someone please guide me.

Static, defines the method as static, what means that you don't need to instantiate the class for call the method

if you declared as static you don't need to create an object to method.so here we are not creating an object to main method that's why we are using static..
