Every file in Unix has a number, called an inode, associated with it. Unix doesn’t use the
filename to refer to the file; it uses the inodes.

I recommend that you read articles on the web to understand them which will be easier than trying to explain the concept here.

ls -i will show you the inodes of the files.
