Hmolpedia is an A to Z Encyclopedia of Human Thermodynamics, Human Chemistry, and Human Physics, aka the "hmolsciences", from hmol-, meaning "mass unit amount of humans" (Dodd, 1953), + -science, meaning "to know", on topics related to the derivation, from first principles, of the characteristic functions of human chemical thermodynamics, the new "matter and motion" theory (Ostwald, 1906) replacement for "god theory" (Meslier, 1729).
Hmolpedia, launched in 2005, as an online thermodynamics of humans hyperlinked glossary-of-terms, turned 2007 wiki format, is an information repository, collating the "manifold avenues" (Roegen, 1971) of ideas, opened during "secret principle" attempts at the chemical thermodynamic study of existence, experience, being, becoming, and continuity, universally conceptualized. The subject matter of Hmolpedia, presently, is summarized by 400+ core terms, employed by 200+ key thinkers, of 1,400+ existographies, within which are 60+ social Newton like thinkers, working to solve the top key queries in existence philosophy.
Precursors | Forerunners
Prototypes, precursors, forerunners, and publications thematic to Hmolpedia, in content and structure, include: Lucretius' On the Nature of Things (60BC), Goethe's Elective Affinities (1809), Perrot's A to Z of Thermodynamics (1998), Diderot's 35-volume Encyclopedia (1772), Bayle's 3,000-article Historical and Critical Dictionary (1702), Sorokin's mechanistic school of sociology (1928), Lange's History of Materialism (1865), Henderson's Gibbs-Pareto circle (1932-42), Kyle's "Mystique of Entropy" (1988), Ball's Critical Mass (2004), Nietzsche's 1,067 Will to Power fragments (1888), Montaigne's Essays (1590), the 100+ two-cultures disciplines (in general), respectively, to name a few.
The main hmolscience vantage is the physico-chemical or "advanced perspective" (Lovecraft, 1922) view, wherein all activity and reactivity, hydrogen to human, i.e. all "proton-electron configurations" (Weiss, 1925), as shown below, are seen, or rather objectively observed, from a universal point of view:
This view, in recent years, has come to be called the "thermodynamic lens" (Donohue, 2014) perspective, its visual acuity philosophically-grinded (Spinoza, 1676), by the first and second law of thermodynamics, as the top 2000 geniuses and minds tend to intuit.
People, according to the advanced chemical thermodynamic lens view, are chemical things whose "states" of existence are discerned by the combined operations of inexact heat differentials, exact Gibbs energy differentials, and kinetics, give or take, conceptually defined within the "system", shown adjacent, which is situated on a solar-heated earth substrate surface, expanded and contracted daily, in irreversible Clausius transformation cycles.
Logo | Favicon
The atom favicon , is thematic to the view that humans are powered bound states of 26-elements, a collection of "thinking" or "tormented" atoms (Voltaire, 1755); a powered animate thing. The Hmolpedia logo, i.e. atomic human in lotus position, is thematic to the view of one's "self", conceptualized as an ever-changing electromagnetic mind state or wave pattern, found in a turnover rate based bound state atomic geometry, or powered CHNOPS+20E existive.
Abioism | Terms
The words and terminology employed (see: terminology reform) in Hmolpedia articles, since 2012 JHT-initiated physico-chemically neutral term reforms, have been penned using an explicit "abioism" basis (see: life terminology reform), wherein only reality-based and or physico-chemically recognizable words, e.g. "existography" (reality-based word) used vs "biography" (myth-based word) disabused, are employed.
Hmolpedia employs the new "atomic dating system", in dating years of existographies and some publications. Specifically, years of existence of people are shown in years dated with mythical Dionysian calendar (BC/AD), albeit in the Painean calendar (BCM/ACM) notation scheme, and the new SI-unit based Thimsian calendar (BE/AE) dating system, dating events to the zero year (1955AD or 0AE) when atoms were first seen by humans; albeit, for dates on or after 2021AD (66AE), Thimsian (AE) dates are tending to be employed alone.
- Note: In Sep 2020, Hmolpedia, in 5,376 articles, penned (Dec 2007 to Aug 2020) at WikiFoundry.com / WetPaint.com (see: wiki), via EoHT.info, was split into two wikis, newly hosted on the MediaWiki platform, namely: Hmolpedia 2020 (EoHT.info) (see: wiki), an archived edition, and Hmolpedia (Hmolpedia.com), i.e. this wiki, a new active edition
