What does the public static void method do and why do we need it for all of our projects?

I've noticed that every time we create a "Main.java" we add a public static void method. What does it exactly do? I noticed that if I tried to use System.out it won't work unless it is inside that method but I don't understand why.

Thanks in advance.
