In encyclopedias, Hmolpedia, from "hmol" meaning mass of humans, + -pedia, meaning "child like", from encyclopedia, meaning cyclical knowledge, is a wiki-based (and print set) encyclopedia, launched in 2007 by Libb Thims, which covers all concepts, terms, and scholars related to the subject of chemical thermodynamics, and related subjects, such as physics and chemistry, applied, macro-scopically, to people, viewed as reactive chemical species.
The following shows the simplified etymology (Thims, 2011) of the name Hmolpedia, pronounced "H-mole pedia":
Namely, "H" stands for "humans", "mol" stands for "chemical amount" (or a mass of people), and "pedia" referring to "education, rearing of a child", in reference to encyclo-, meaning “circular, round, reoccurring, annual”, aka school of “total knowledge” on a subject. In plain speak, if one takes a chemical amount, i.e. mass, of people, i.e. a "mol" of humans, in chemical-speak (or "hmol" in human chemical thermodynamics speak), e.g. a group of single men (Goethe, 1809; Davidson, 1919) or single male college students (Hirata, 2000), or, alternatively, people from one country or religious affiliation (Beg, 1987), and mixes them with another chemical amount of humans, e.g. single females or single female college students, or people from a different country or religious affiliation, then certain heated, chilled, or ambient "reactions", i.e. human chemical reactions, depending, will ensue, which can be studied, quantified, theorized about, and analyzed in "exactly" the same way, albeit scaled up, that "chemistry", proper, has become an exact science, over the last four centuries.
Knowing, e.g., that the average resting energy of a human is about 100 watts, one can calculate that the average work energy released or expended in a sexual reproducing generational reaction (25-years) is about 200 GJ, and that if a "mol" of humans, i.e. hmol, were defined as a thousand people (500 men, 500 women), say put experimentally on a deserted island (see: island model), then the chemical free energy change of the reproductive formations (products) that result, , or human free energy of formations, which technically are called "double displacement reactions", would be on the magnitude of about = 100 TJ/hmol, i.e. "one-hundred tera-joules per human mol", in words. Hence, the name "Hmol-pedia". Hmolpedia, in short, is a "pedia", or child-like compendium of knowledge, aka encyclo-pedia, on all thinkers, scholars, terms, ideas, theories, and research related to this niche coming-into-being future exact science.
