How can I animate two fibers adhering together like beta balls or meta edges do in Modeler? They don't actually do it layout.

If line would be made from particles, Hypervoxels would merge them, if two such objects will be too close each other.
You can make group of points in Modeler (no polygons), and enable HyperVoxels on such object. Each point will be glued with another one, looking like line.

Set this up, but it's not gluing. What did I do wrong? Both sets of points are active.

Try putting them in the same groups within Hypervoxels! This sometimes forces them to merge.

If you look in the relativity manual, this is described with a way to do it. Whether Relativity has been insured to work consistently these days, though, is a different question.

Still doesn't work. Damn!

Set Blending Mode to Additive, both lines of points.

That was it. Only had one set to additive. Works perfect. Thanks a lot. This Lightwave community is really great!
