In site pages, progress report refers to the origin, progress, and development of this idea, in the mind of Thims, and related thinkers, as organized via Hmolpedia, the aim of which being to yield the product of solidified textbook on human chemical thermodynamics.
|A 30 Mar 2016 video, made by Libb Thims, the day after he received his copy of the 10-volume print set of Hmolpedia, wherein he gives an off-the-cuff “progress report” of developments up to that point, on the previous eight years since Hmolpedia launched, as a wiki.|
The gist of Hmolpedia, is captured fairly well by Thomas Young:
- “The longer a person has lived the less he gains by reading, and the more likely he is to forget what he has read and learnt of old; and the only remedy that I know of is to write upon every subject that he wishes to understand, even if he burns what he has written.”
- — Thomas Young (1809), “Letter to Hudson Gurney”
Libb Thims, in short, wishes to understand how the "spontaneities" behind the reactions we characterize as "love" (e.g. love at first sight, true love, etc.), are understood, chemical thermodynamically; and there are MANY footnotes, citations, "avenues", and cul-de-sacs, etc., that one encounters, while traversing this wished-for path, that need to be "written down", similar to how Pierre Bayle's 1695-1697 penned 3,000-entry Historical and Critical Dictionary, has articles that are accompanied by lengthy footnotes, some upto 20-pages per footnote, and these footnotes have footnotes, and the "wiki" method, presently, is the most efficient tool to organizationally-amass this corpus of scattered knowledge.
The core seed of Hmolpedia began to grown in 1994-1995; in the years 2001 to 2004, folders in several file cabinets began to take shape; in 2005, an online A-Z anchor-linked glossary of terms was made; in 2005-2007, Wikipedia usage was tested; in Dec 2007, Hmolpedia had its first wiki at WetPaint.com (2007-2013); this wiki farm platform was eventually sold to WikiFoundry.com (2013- Aug 2020) wiki platform; in Sep 2020, Hmolpedia split into two MediaWiki-based sites: an archived version, and a new version.
1976-1981 | Right / wrong, god, and afterlife?
The following are key development and or progress points in 1976/1977:
|c.1976||Libb Thims, at the age of about four or five, found a 1.5-inch oval-shaped birds egg, in a nest, in a tree, colored white with blue spots, and while playing with it, while holding it over the ledge, on the second floor balcony of the apartment complex he was then residing in, dropped the egg, for whatever reason, e.g. playing around with kids, see what would happen, etc.; afterwards "sensing" some sort of confusing cold darkness, therein adumbrating some possible sort of right / wrong divide or "good" vs "evil" line, possibly (a confusing memory).|
|c.1977||good", they will go to "live" with "god"; he then followed up this with the query: "where does god live?", after which, he was given a mixture of answers, being that either "god lives in the clouds" or "god lives in that gardener's shed" (pointing to a small gardener's shed, near a park where Thims resided as a child); both answers being open to acceptance, but, in the long term, unpalatable to the mind.|
|c.1981|| This can be compared with the 1961 space flight of an age 25 Gherman Titov, the fourth person in space:
who, after after landing, when touring the US, he "shocked" American reporters with his comments, when asked about his experience in space, that he saw neither "god" nor "angels" up there; after which US reporters had to rewire the formerly positive headlines, into an atheism-disparaging slant on Russians.
1984 | 2nd grade | Held back
The following are key development and or progress points in the year 1984-ish:
|c.1984||Libb Thims, at the age of 11 or 12, was "held back", from elementary education, owing to a teacher-perceived "boredom" (see: boredom philosophers), e.g. as written on report cards, and "forced" to retake the entire 12th grade over again; which simultaneously occurred, during the year, when Thims parental structure relocated to a new neighborhood (and new school system). From this "point", until the age of 19 (when Thims graduated high school, with about a C-average [or less when it came to science subjects; he took physics, but NEVER took a course in chemistry), Thims fully stopped in engagement in education; instead, learning the art of being a "social butterfly" (to throw and be at parties) and the art seduction, namely how to get women to fall in love within weeks or months.|
1987 | Existence | Drive-thru paradox?
The following are key development and or progress points in 1987:
|c.1987||Libb Thims, at the age of 15, obtained a work permit, and began working a fast food restaurant, and therein began to meet and hang out with females who were older then him, who had their own apartments, paid their rent, had food in their fridge, partied, and seemed to "exist", given their minimum wage income? Shortly thereafter, he encountered a dishwasher, while working in another restaurant, who had several kids and a wife, both of whom he grudgingly complained about a lot, but seemed to "exist", in some peculiar angry happiness, given his minimal circumstances? The question quickly became: why does one "work" past the minimal existence of: rent and food? Occupations past minimum (or basic income) becoming seeming only an issue of "vanity" as the Buss Study, see below evidences. This so-called "drive-thru paradox" is captured well in the famous "bar scene" of the 1997 film Good Will Hunting, wherein the character Will Hunting "works" construction, pays his rent, hangs out with friends, has girlfriends, and "exists", but yet has is a "prodigy" able to do any occupation he chooses?|
1988-1993 | Art of love
The following are key development in 1988 to 1993:
|date||Thims, from the age of 15 to about 21, spent a good deal of energy and effort mastering the so-called "art of love", in terms of having a good personality, being physically fit, a social butterfly, the "life of a party", a good social "prospect", etc., the gist of which being the the aim to make whoever you are with, remember the day, of you with them, as the "best time of their life" (or best day of their entire life); the Cary Grant personal comes to mind, as does the apex example seen in the film Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?, wherein a "Dr. John Wayne Prentice", gets the daughter of biggest News Paper company in state, to fall in love with him in 20-something minutes, and after to tell her mother about it.|
1991 | Freedom
The following are key development and or progress points in 1991:
|Spring||Thims, having graduated "high school", at age 19, a year behind his peers, having been "held back", in grade six, because his teachers reported that he seemed "bored" in class, became "free" to a socially-obligatory extent; graduating high school being the expected "minimum" requirement to be a basic adult "human" in America. The gist of this moment is captured well in the words of a 17-year-old Howard Hughes:
Thims had it in his mind, at this point, that he could do, now, whatever he wanted, as he was freed from the confines of society.
1993 | Vanity and love?
The following are key development in the year 1993:
|Summer||At some point, age 21, plus or minus, the lead contending female, Thims could "potentially" marry, whose father had his last name carved on a 15+ story architectural and engineering building, and whose mother, was American royalty of some sort, being an heiress of a multi-million dollar vacuum cleaning company, told her mother, not that she had met this "fun" or "great" guy, but simply that he was a "chemical engineer" (or chemical engineering student)?
This completely dumbfounded Thims; concluding effect, that, in his mind, he had become nothing but a "label", a social "vanity" label, that appeased the minds of higher social structure of the extended family. Thims eventually, after 2006, found that this same issue had resonating in the mind of Goethe:
The "vanity" / "love" / "morality" / "purpose" is a puzzle not fully yet solved.
|Fall?||choose" which one to marry:
This seed idea, about puzzling nature about "choice and love", of course, transformed into his affinity chemistry based Elective Affinities (1809), which became his greatest work or "best book" in his own words.
1994-1995 | ΔG < 0
The following are key development and or progress points in 1994 to 1995:
|1994||Libb Thims, while in a local book store, came across American evolutionary psychologist David Buss' newly-published very-influential 1994 The Evolution of Desire: Strategies of Human Mating, which presented the results of studies, conducted in the 1970s and 1980s, involving a survey of some 10,047 people worldwide, on the nature of sexual selection, cross-culturally, that sought to identify underlying evolutionary-mediated psychological mechanisms of human behavior and desire; such as the famous Buss study, presented in the book, which found that sexual receptivity of women can be quantified numerically in terms of the "occupation" (work) of the male, as shown adjacent.|
Thims, thereafter, fascinated by this "mechanism" (or mechanistic) way of looking at human relationship underpinnings, as a hobby, read over a 100 books on evolutionary psychology and mate selection (see: Thims' mate selection book collection).
|c.1995||Libb Thims, in the period of the college semesters of Fall 1994 to Fall 1995, as shown adjacent, while taking chemical engineering based chemical thermodynamics, physical chemistry, and heat and mass transfer, among other related prerequisite subjects prior, e.g. mathematics, past partial differential equations, chemistry, through, general chemistry, organic chemistry, and inorganic chemistry, etc., began to ruminate on how a mixture single reactants, such as A, B, and C, in an initial "state", react, over a generational period, to form the product of a new child D, in the end "state", as chemical thermodynamics sees, defines, and determines (see: determinism) things (see: thermodynamic lens), in terms of Gibbs energy change , where a negative free energy change indicates a "favored" (by nature) or "spontaneous" reaction:
At this point, the solution to the puzzle remained elusive, and basically a thought in the back of his head, which he worked on from time to time, similar to the Goethe love thought experiment (c.1808).
The following are key development and or progress points in the years 1996 to 1997:
The following are key development and or progress points in the year 1998:
|Apr 13||Thims completed his BS in chemical engineering and his BS in electrical engineering, at the University of Michigan.|
|Jun||Thims moved to Chicago.|
1999 | MS particle physics / MD-PhD neuroscience and biochemistry?
The following are key developments in 1999 and 2000:
|date||Thims, having mastered chemical engineering and electrical engineering, the then two highest-paying and said to be "most difficult" degrees, and having passed though the candidacy program to be a Marine fighter pilot office, began to engage into (add).|
|date||Thims began to amass his own personal medical school library, e.g. he bought every required required reading book for medical school, up through the 4th edition Julian Youmans' five-volume Neurological Surgery, the so-called "bible of neurosurgery", with the intention of having all the standard medical school curriculum mastered, up through the board certification level, BEFORE he started medical school, the aim being to graduate in the top 3 percent of his medical school class (having already graduated in the top 8 percent of his chemical engineering class, and therein "seeing" what needed, in respect to time, preparation, and study, to finish in the top three); during this period he also read about 50+ books on neuroscience, neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, and books on the mind.|
2001 | BIG year
The following are key development and or progress points in 2001:
In more detail, the following draft "human free energy table" (Ѻ), a colorized version of the original scratch paper version (2001), above left, shows that as the "mental entropy" (SMx) of the person decreases, as shown in column four, and as the negative enthalpy of the reaction (ΔH) increases, as shown by row five, columns one to three, so to does the negative Gibbs energy change (ΔG) increase, therein providing a chemical thermodynamics "gauge" of reaction "spontaneity", i.e. naturalness, of human chemical reactions:
This logic, accordingly, allows for the calculation of the human free energy of formation or any given person; such as follows, which was originally done for small chemicals, tabulated on free energy tables, by Gilbert Lewis (1923):
At this point, Thims decided he would attempt to pen out a short, say 40-page article, over the course of two-months, to outline the basics of this solution, for the betterment of humankind. This quickly turned into four draft manuscripts, written over the following four years, Human Thermodynamics, Volume 1-3, and Cessation Thermodynamics.
The following are key development and or progress points in 2002:
|Mid||Beckhap's law (1975), namely the conjecture that "beauty" is inversely proportional to "brains" (or beauty times brains equals a constant):
In symbols, physical "attractiveness" A is inversely proportional, via an unknown Beckhap constant CB, to "intellect" I or mental attractiveness:
undertook an "Attractiveness vs. Intelligence" study of the photos (see: graduation photos ranked by physical attractiveness), each ranked on a 7-point scale (1 = least physically attractive; 7 = most physically attractive), a few examples as shown below:
and corresponding graduation degrees, each degree ranked by "intellectual difficulty" (see: college degrees ranked by intellectual difficulty), of the 2,018 students of the graduating classes at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), in the years 1969 and 1972, finding, via plotting the data, that when "like groups" of students are grouped, e.g. male engineers, female science majors (as shown adjacent), education degrees students, etc., that within those niche groups, "physical attractiveness" has an inverse relationship to "intelligence" (or mental attractiveness). This data was then fitted into HCT variables, based on the reasoned conjecture that enthalpy H is proportional to physical attractiveness A:
and entropy S is inversely proportional to intelligence I:
One can then employ the Gibbs energy of formation equation:
where the initial and final states of enthalpy and entropy, refer to the initial state and final state of an 18+ year reaction involving the production of a child:
Using these time-specific variables, through a bit of substitution, one can derive the following result:
which says that, owing to the constraints of the Gibbs equation, otherwise known as the combined law of thermodynamics, the physical attractiveness of the individual, in this case the male, will vary inversely with the intellect of the individual, on average, at the initial start to a typical romantic male-female reaction. This, barring prolonged digression, gave Thims a first approximation "proof" the basic components of mate selection, as defined in evolutionary psychology terms, or as captured by the Beckhap's law idiom, are the result of the nature of the enthalpies and entropies involved in social reaction dynamics and in the chemical reaction formation of humans.
The following are key development and or progress points in 2003:

A 5-step overview of two people meeting and moving in together is summarized well via five diagrams on in the “transition state” section of the HT glossary, as follows:
This is covered, in more detail, in Thims 2007 Human Chemistry.
The following are key development and or progress points in 2004:
|May 10||John Gottman, who found, by studying 2,000 newly married couples, that stable marriage couples had 5-to-1 ratio of positive-to-negative exchanges in their microsecond interactions, to synthesize the basic outline of the human chemical bond.|
|Month||At some time during this period the concept of human molecular spin was conceived.|
|Month||David Hwang's 2001 “The Thermodynamics of Love”, wherein he described males M and females F as "elements", that react to form a couple "M-F", wherein, of note, we see the use of the dash "-" meant to represent a relationship bond of some sort (see: human chemical bond), the couple which he defined as a "compound", as follows:
and explains how chemical thermodynamics applies to this reaction:
Hwang also used reaction coordinate diagrams; the used of these was a new influential idea to Thims, all of which being later employed and expanded on in Thims 2007 Human Chemistry.
Hmolpedia | Glossary-based
The following are key development and or progress points in 2005:
which had been printed in a little over two dozen copies, which were being circulated among Thims associates for peer review, feedback, understandability, questions, etc. The printed back cover of copy #24 (of 27 copies), reviewed and returned by Anna Santiago, and age 19 college student and pom-pom girl, who read the forward, introduction, and chapter one, returned on 3 Mar 2005, is shown adjacent.
|Feb 25||Erich Muller's 1998 Journal of Chemical Engineering Education article “Human Societies: a Curious Application of Thermodynamics”, where in he explains society, its bondings and interactions, using chemical thermodynamics arguments, e.g. defining interactions in terms of "potentials" rather than "forces", as shown in his figure 2 (adjacent), the caption of which is:
This article became the role model article for the later launch of the Journal of Human Thermodynamics, per reason that Muller, a chemical engineer (ChE) and chemical thermodynamics professor, had published this in journal focused on "educating" new chemical engineering students, on a topic that is COMPLETELY missing from the current ChE curriculum, which was the one thing Libb Thims wanted to see presented,in his ChE educational process, but did NOT see it; accordingly, this is the one subject Thims wants to see integrated into modern ChE curriculum.
HumanThermodynamics.com | Launched
Thims launched HumanThermodynamics.com, with the goal of having a site to be a place to link up others around the world who might be researching the same topic, wherein he began to go public with some of his research and writings.
Wikipedia | Tested
Libb Thims joined the newly-formed Wikipedia; contributed over 10,000-edits, over the course of three years, and 85-new articles (three of which being VERY controversial):
Thims found that it was much EASIER store and write articles in wiki pages, rather than on hand-coded html-based anchor-linked glossary pages. Thims first edit, as an unregistered user, was a new article on “human thermodynamics”. The article, however, ended up going through the "articles for deletion" (AfD) process twice, getting voted out of Wikipedia per "reasoned objections", such as the following, by someone who was completing an engineer degree (BS or MS in mechanical or civil engineering) at the time:
Three other articles, penned by Thims, namely: “human chemistry” (E.B., 1851), “human molecule” (Jean Sales, 1789), and Georgi Gladyshev, author of Thermodynamic Theory of the Evolution Living Beings (1997), were likewise voted out.
Thims, in 2007, eventually, particularly after disgust at the 2007 AfD discussion for the human chemistry article (discussed below), left Wikipedia, owing to the observed resistance to having these topics become encyclopedia articles
|Mid||By late 2004 to mid 2005, Thims had four draft manuscripts shown online, as follows:|
HT Glossary | Started
Thims made a "key term" hyperlinked-connected "glossary" page in the HumanThermodynamics.com site, so to be able to add hyperlinks to new, rare, or technical terms, in online paragraphs, that were in need of exact and clear definitions, but were non-extant on the Internet; or terms, e.g. "transition state", "bond", or "work", that apply equally at the micro chemical reaction level and at the macro human interactions level:

constitutes a dominate and significant portion of the of the human free energy change of formation, that is "stored" in the bond "≡" as "bond energy":
a logic pioneered by Fritz Haber, in his Thermodynamics of Technical Gas Reactions (1905), for gas molecules, and that no one previous, for surface-attached "human molecules" (people), had even "envisioned" (or yet seen), nor attempted for this immense problem:
decided to take it upon himself, to pen a scholarly article on the theory of the "human chemical bond", entitled "On the Nature of the Human Chemical Bond", a title themed after Pauling's 1931 article "The Nature of the Chemical Bond" turned 1939 book, of the same title, aka the "Bible of modern chemistry". To this very day (Nov 2020), there are fewer than a handful of people, presently, who even remotely understand what is being said in this table section.
In Oct 2005, or thereabouts, Thims discovered Goethe:
Which contained the following:
Allured by this mysterious footnote, Thims placed an order for Elective Affinities on Oct 10:
Hence, sometime between late Oct 2005, when this book arrive, and Feb 2006, when Thims began writing Human Chemistry, Thims read Goethe's famous "chapter four", thereafter becoming hypnotized.
Thims found, following further research, that Goethe had taken the previous affinity chemistry logic (affinity reactions based on affinity tables), e.g. Torbern Bergman (1775) and Etienne Geoffroy (1718), below middle, which derive from Newton's "Query 31" (below left), to make a human affinity table (below right):
with which he used to pen a 36-chapter novella, called Elective Affinities, wherein each chapter, wherein new "reactant species" are introduced into the system of the "header species", the latter ordered by decreasing chemical affinity, in respect to each respective header species, in the affinity tables, is a new "human chemical reaction", thereby founding the science of human chemistry. This brought resolution to the long-sought question, Thims had floating in his mind (since 1994-1995), about "who was the first to apply chemical thermodynamics prediction logic to human reactions, e.g. to mate selections reactions?".
JHT | Launched
Thims launched the Journal of Human Thermodynamics, active from 2005 to 2015, an attempt to establish a publishing platform for active researchers, worldwide, interested in topics and subject matter related to thermodynamics applied in the humanities.
|Dec 25||WB), as shown below, which had began to be listed in different alphabetical pages, namely: B, E, H, L, M, and S, as shown by the boxed letters (above): |
Firstly, of note, each term, by definition of the laws of the universe, as they are presently understood, had to be defined "non-anthropomorphically", from the unbiased physico-chemical point of view, i.e. chemical thermodynamics view of things, aka the "thermodynamic lens" view of things, as it has been referred to historically. Secondly, of note, while many of these terms have atrophied into non-use, some, such as those shown bolded below, eight of which, namely: atom, element, Gibbs energy, human molecule, human thermodynamics, mind, thermodynamics, and work, as of 1 Nov 2020, being blue-linked to extant Hmolpedia.com articles, many have grown.
2006 | Human Chemistry | Started
The following are key development and or progress points in 2006:
A point arose in mind that it had become a "moral imperative", "categorical imperative" (Kant, c.1750), obligation, or rather existence-stopping "duty", owed to Goethe, that he needed to pen a basic textbook on "human chemistry", as a top ten percent of his class, chemical engineering student, attending a top five US engineering school, should be able to do, to the best of his ability.
During this period, towards the tail end of the writing process, in order to ensure completion, specifically after chapter 10 (Goethe’s Affinities), Thims ran, on the treadmill at a 15% incline, at various Chicago Powerhouse/X-Sport gyms, continuously, every day, for six months straight, exactly 6-miles per day, at a 15% incline, at exactly 7.8 miles per hour, for a total of 1,080 miles, during which time new concepts and theories and solutions to problems were pushed out and grew in the mind "while on" the treadmill. Of note, the reason the "count" was stopped, owed to the fact that Thims' sister (and new husband) few out to visit, the day prior to which, Thims jumped to a 12-mile run (at the same specifications), and resultantly blew out his Achilles's tend (very painful) and could not run for several weeks.
Human Chemistry | Published
2007 | Sep
The following are key development and or progress points in early 2007:
|Sep 4||Goethe, following 18-months and 14-days of continuous focused writing, published paperback version of Human Chemistry, in two volumes, as shown adjacent, thereby giving an outline of the basic subject of human chemistry, as the subject of people defined as chemicals reacting together on a surface, such as Goethe had introduced over two-centuries ago, wherein, e.g. a basic human combination reaction is defined as:
where AB is a bonded union, i.e. a dihumanide molecule, wherein species A and B, e.g. a man and a woman, are bonded by a chemical bond "≡", i.e. A≡B. Likewise, where sexual reproduction, normally thought of as, in simply child-speak, as male M plus female F "react" to make baby B:
is upgraded, to the fact that, chemically-speaking, the human reproduction reaction is a double displacement reaction:
where, MG1 is the male and his germ cell (sperm), FG2 is a female with her germ cell (egg), MF is the bonded couple, and G1G2 is the united (fused) gametes, in the form of the grown child at the point when he or she "detaches" from the parental structure, at about age 16 to 24, depending, the former two being reactants in the "initial state", the latter two being products in the "final state", chemical thermodynamically speaking.
This publication, thereby, establishing "human chemistry" as a basic subject, which is a prerequisite before "human chemical thermodynamics" can be established as a basic subject; in the same way that "chemistry" was established as a science proper first BEFORE "chemical thermodynamics" could be established afterwards.
|Sep 27||Thims published the hardcover version of Human Chemistry.|
Wikipedia: End | Sep-Oct
The following are key development and or progress points in late 2007:
|Sep 24||Goethe as the founder of the subject and explaining how the first book entitled Human Chemistry was written by William Fairburn (1914), who defined people as "human chemical elements", whose reactions were governed by chemistry and thermodynamics, started a basic summary article on "human chemistry" at Wikipedia; it appeared on the Wikipedia main page “Did You Know?” section; then went to “Articles for Deletion” (AfD) (4 Oct 2007); the first AfD, a scientifically-intelligent person, then in the middle of completing his PhD on the lattice Boltzmann methods applied to problems concerning surface tension and wetability, summarized things thusly:
The article, however, eventually was deleted, without final vote, because Thims requested deletion per the Wikipedia G:7 rule (author requests deletion), owing to the observed idiocy directed towards the article
Libb Thims started a "human molecule" article at Wikipedia; it appeared on the Wikipedia main page “Did You Know?” section (people liked it and voted it there), as many did in the 1940s:
Then, when the sharp-eyed Wikipedian vultures arrived, steeped in religious bias and anthropisms, it quickly went to “Articles for Deletion”; eventually being deleted (4 Oct 2007), without final vote, because Thims requested deletion per the Wikipedia G:7 rule (author requests deletion).
|Oct 4||Libb Thims, the day after requesting deletion of his "human chemistry" and "human molecule" article, per the Wikipedia G:7 rule (author requests deletion), QUIT Wikipedia! Specifically, and stopped editing at Wikipedia, owing to the observed experience with the attempts at starting the: human thermodynamics, human chemistry, and human molecule articles, and did not return to Wikipedia, or check in on any so-called "watch list" pages, until late Nov/Dec (after which, he found out that a mass effort was made to expunge him from Wikipedia, as summarized in the following sections).|
|Oct 12- Oct 20||The article Libb Thims had written on Georgi Gladyshev went to the “Articles for deletion” process, during the course of which, during the course of which Libb Thims, as a Wikipedia editor began to come into question; to exemplify:
This was followed up by an "incidents" article, posted at the administrator's noticeboard (15-pages), being started on Libb Thims, supposedly to begin to amass evidence that Libb Thims, in his 10,000-edits, was nothing but a "fringe pseudoscience" pusher?
|arbitrations (7-pgs), evidence (13-pgs), workshops (36-pgs), noticeboards (20+ pgs?), case studies, and what not. The following, a Spanish Wikipedian, who is a physical chemist, and who understands at least some of basic content of which Thims had written, is a good synopsis of the resulting situation:
In short, AFTER Thims had left Wikipedia (4 Oct 2007), of his own "choice", a "witch hunt" had begun, during which Thims was "demonized", owing to a mass community based paranoia, seeded into the minds of people who known absolutely nothing about the subject, his user account, which had a a clean block record, and 8537-edits, over two-years was blocked "indefinitely", without even a single warning.
Theorists who write about people defined as “human molecules”, however, as history has shown, have had a tendency to be banned (from countries), imprisoned, or have their works put on the index of forbidden works. French philosopher Jean Sales, the person who coined the term “human molecule”, in fact was imprisoned, by the Chatelet, and later sentenced to perpetual banishment, from France, for writing, in his materialism advocating The Philosophy of Nature: a Treatise on Moral Human Nature, about people as “human molecules” formed from the "atoms" of the earth by a "great process". The bright Voltaire, in 1777, to exemplify, even went to the prison and offered 500 pounds, or the equivalent of $16,000 USD (2020) (Ѻ), to get Sales released, but the dimwits of the courts were too paranoid about the implications of his human molecule based moral nature theory. The same was the case then, as it is now. Wikipedia, in short, is run by many dimwits, particularly when it comes to more controversial topics, so say the least.

The following are key development and or progress points in late 2007:
|Dec 24||Hmolpedia, using the WetPaint.com wiki platform, originally made by Ben Elowitz to amass facts and date related to cancer research:
and was simply referred to as an "HT WetPaint wiki", as shown by the state of the main page at the end of Dec 24 (adjacent), or shortly thereafter "A Human Thermodynamics Wiki".
The following are key development and or progress points in 2008:
Sterner-Elser molecular formula | 2000
The Sterner-Esler human "empirical molecular formula", which shows the the simplest positive integer ratio of atoms present in compound or molecular species, is as follows:
Thims molecular formula | 2002
The Thims human "empirical molecular formula", which shows the the simplest positive integer ratio of atoms present in compound, molecule, or chemical species, is as follows:
In comparing these two formulas, the Sterner-Elser empirical human molecular formula (2000) with the Thims empirical human molecular formula (2002), we note that four elements, namely: B (boron), Ni (nickle), Sn (tin) and and V (vanadium), as shown highlighted yellow above, the functions of which in humans as summarized in "elements table" (Thims, 2008), are not seen in the Sterner-Elser formula, whereas they are shown in the Thims formula.
|Mar 12||Thims bought the domain EoHT.info (see: thread), hosted at GoDaddy, and had it point to and mask over the previous subdomain (humanthermodynamics.wetpaint.com) URL.|
The following are key development and or progress points in 2009:
|Jan 2||Libb Thims, amid his ongoing debates with Georgi Gladyshev, a Russian physical chemistry, who believes that "living beings" emerged or evolved on on particular day in the past, Ted Erickson, an American chemical engineer and physicist, who believed that "life" arose at the Planck length scale, and DMR Sekhar, an Indian chemical engineer, who believed in some sort of anti-Charvaka philosophy, or "closet-god-as-free-will" Hinduism ideology of life vs non-life, vented his "life: a defunct scientific theory" email turned JHT article (see: defunct theory of life debate); in the decade to follow, abioism became the new view.|
|Sep 2-19||Moriarty-Thims debate), involving some of the biggest names in thermodynamics, e.g. Wolfgang Muschik, Robert Kenoun, Ingo Muller, John Schmitz, Jing Chen, Frank Lambert, Ted Erickson, on the Hmolpedia talk pages, following a video made by Irish physicist Philip Moriarty where he says, on video, that ordered students have "low entropy" and scattered students have "high entropy", but then recants all of this, in YouTube comments, says this is JUST an "analogy", and that in REALITY (Moriarty's conception of reality), arrangements of people, e.g. students congregating in a field, do NOT have an entropy associated with them:
Basically, the debate revolved around a physicist's view of entropy (which is Boltzmann-Planck based; applicable ONLY to gas phase-like systems) and an engineer's view of entropy (which is Clausius-Gibbs based; applicable to ALL bodies of the universe). It was a debate anchored in deeply-ingrained ignorance, very ubiquitous in modern academia.
|Sep 29||The 1,000th article (Richard Piccard) of Hmolpedia was completed.|
|Aug 7||The site had 50 members, 280+ visitors/day, 13,000+ page views per month.|

The following are key development and or progress points in 2010:
|Feb 15||Thims 32 investigations, when key word searching for people with IQs of 225, discovered Christopher Hirata, and his 2000 "Thermochemical Approach to Relationships". This moved Thims, upon seeing Hirata's use of the equilibrium reaction arrow "↔", towards thinking more about the "equilibrium", i.e. forward reaction and back reaction, view of human chemical reactions; namely from:
where A is Charlotte, B is Edward, and C is the Captain, of the first four chapters of Goethe's Elective Affinities, who gleaned this theory in 1796 (age 47), and who became the first human ever calculated to have an IQ of 225 (Merrill, 1926), to the following:
meaning that the reverse reaction, e.g. when Captain C stops chumming around with his old friend Edward B, during which time Edward reverts back to Charlotte A. Thims, in short began not just to think about the one-way reaction “dart” (→) model, introduced by William Cullen (1757), but also about the reversible reaction () model, introduced by Jacobus van’t Hoff (1884), as applied to bulk social system models of human chemical reactions.
|Oct 16||Thims, with the possibility, ruminating in mind, that the entire wiki of Hmolpedia might crash or disappear, for whatever reason, made a draft cover (Ѻ) for a guesstimated: 5-volume print set of EoHT.info, then titled Encyclopedia of Human Thermodynamics, and printed a stapled-together sixteen-page test run, using the articles: Sadi Carnot, Rene Descartes, Ernst Haeckel, Hmol, Hmol science, Arthur Iberall, mechanistic school, Eugene Spektorsky, social physics, and soul snow.|
The following are key development and or progress points in 2011:

Blackout | Oct 7
The following are events that occurred following the event of Thims "blacking out", amid a pressurized situation wherein (a) he had given his "atheism for kids" lecture, editing it, and uploading it, (b) was in the middle of doing an online-to-print transition of Hmolpedia as a 10-volume print set encyclopedia (as back up in case all online material should crash), and (c) had been informed that the had a month to move out of the place he was residing at, because the owners has sold the house:
|Oct 7||pressure" of: (a) attempting get Hmolpedia converted to a Word file, (b) finish editing the 14-part "Atheism for Kids" YouTube lecture, and (c) having to find a new place to reside (within a condensed period of three-weeks), blacked out for three hours (waking up later in the Hospital), while treadmill running, owing to what the doctor's classified as a heart arrhythmia problem.
This occurred after not running for about a weak owing to relocation, then ran one mile on the X-Sport Gym treadmill at 7.8 mph and 15% incline, slowed for inclined walk break, then went for second mile, and then completely blacked out (collapsed on treadmill). On the third day in the hospital the doctors suggested that Thims undergo an "ablation" procedure, which he did.
|Nov 15||Thims, when the site was at the 3,940+ article level, added (see: edit version 1730) the “A to Z” term to the site homepage, referring to the wiki collection of articles as follows:
This was done in theme to Pierre Perrot’s 1998 A to Z of Thermodynamics, a thermodynamics dictionary entitled originally entitled Dictionnare de thermodynamique (1994) in the French edition, which was inspirationally thematic to how Thims had originally envisioned and attempted to write each Hmolpedia article, often citing each new article, when applicable, to Perrot’s thermodynamics encyclopedia-like dictionary booklet (1998).
The following are key development and or progress points in 2016:

2020 | Pandemic
The following are key development and or progress points in 2020:
Virus hits Chicago | Mar 16
|Mar 16||HCT) manuscript.|
The following are details that followed in the wake the virus hitting Chicago:
|Apr 18||Thims, when the HCT manuscript (printed) has reached 127-pages, uploaded an impromptu 5-part "Human Chemical Thermodynamics | 25-Years / 100-Pages" video.|
Going out of business? | Apr 19
The following are key events starting on 19 Apr 2020:
At 4;09AM CST, Thims emailed Travis Derouin to query him about the mobile version being down, that ads were back on the site (which was supposed to be ad-free), and that Thims would need the site to be operational for demo purposes for the upcoming Thermodynamics 2.0 conference; the following was Derouin's reply:
Derouin elaborated that the wiki is not breaking even, and that he is short on time, with a new child and new job, and put ads back onto the site (a previous ad-free educational wiki) to see if he could make the site sustainable.
The following details events on or after 25 Apr 2020:
|Apr 25||BE/AE), aka the "Anno Elementum" or "Atomic Era" dating system, originally for dating the title page of his HCT manuscript; but shortly thereafter employed and water tested in Hmolpedia existography dates..|
|Apr 30||Derouin commented to Thims: “confident that with some changes that we can make the platform work for another year. Worst cases cenario, if we have to shut down, I will provide at least 3 months lead time and do what I can to help transition you to another platform”.|
|May 9||engine pioneers, accordingly being the best and most thorough "history of thermodynamics", up through 1796, ever written. In Thims’ mind, the first-two months of the virus, was the best thing that had happened to him, at least in the at least the last decade. It was equivalent, in his mind, to the so-called “genius hiatus effect” phenomenon; thinking in particular, of how in Aug 1665, Newton was “forced” to leave Cambridge University, owing to a temporary closing as a precaution against the “great plague”, during which time he returned to private studies in his home in Woolsthorpe (Ѻ), where he did his most famous experiments on light, optics, and supposedly say an apple fall from a tree, and thereafter derive the law of universal gravitation.|
|May 20||Derouin emailed Thims that he would take ads off the site per $25/mo; other issues: the site image servers; mobile version was not operational; the animation part of the gif images was no longer working (e.g. on the animate things page); the site search box had been down for several years; etc.|
|Aug 30||Libb Thims made his "last new" article (Hermann Lotze) at the WikiFoundry version of Hmolpedia.|
Hmolpedia | MediaWiki-based
The following are key development and or progress points in Jan-Aug 2020:
|Sep 4||WikiWorks.com, to help with some of the details, such as 5,376 article migration, and coding changes, e.g. MediaWiki version update, extension editions, URL main page and folder name, etc., that Thims couldn’t figure out on his own; Ike Hecht (Ѻ), of WikiWorks assigned Nischay Nahata to be the main developer consultant for Hmolpedia.|
|Sep 12||Hmolpedia 2020" (URL: EoHT.info); posting a Reddit note on this wiki split.|
|Sep 21||Hmolpedia forum was established (pictured adjacency); as replacement for the former WikiFoundry discussion "threads" (which is likely to shut down soon).|
|Sep 30||Thims started a MediaWiki:Site improvements page to keep track of coding and extension progress and needs.|
|Oct 3||74 articles (stub / migrates and or new) had been penned at the Hmolpedia.com MediaWiki (new main site) and the EoHT.info MediaWiki (was set up, but still did not have the 5,376 article migrated into it).|
|Late Oct||Leon Winiarski's 1898 Essay on Social Mechanics (French → English), and Mehdi Bazargan's 1956 Thermodynamics of Humans (Farsi → English), one many famous HT-related translations he had attempted, albeit, only in part, over the years.
In respect to the Bazargan translation, Thims had previously tried to pay several Iranian engineers to translate it, e.g. Robert Kenoun, Fardin Khalili, and Reza Hashermain, among others (who wish to remain anonymous), to no success, and even had an Iranian girlfriend reside with him, for over a year, who refused to translate it. Only the first dozen or so pages, of each, have been read; but so far it has been VERY informative, such as the following, newly-learned:
Here, we see, at long last, why Pareto, in his personal communications, called Winiarski "ignorant", and why Pareto was so active in attempts to block Winiarski from getting a professorship post at the University of Geneva, even thought Pareto was the one who signed off on Winiarski's PhD! It all had to do with Pareto's own ignorance about entropy.
|Nov 29||189 articles started (see: longest pages); and the former "top 1000 geniuses", which is sort of a reference ordering backbone for many of the scholars cited in Hmolpedia, was re-named "top 2000 geniuses and minds", and split into ten main articles, candidates, and existive page, totaling: 989 names (see count).|
|Dec 19||video, based on the card animation.|
|20 Jan||Iranian chemical engineer Foad Aghamiri confirmed with Libb Thims that he will do the first Farsi-to-English translation of Mehdi Bazargan's 1956 The Thermodynamics of Humans.|
|1 Feb||The site was ranked via 430+ "terms" and 160+ "names" (see: TL) (Hmolpedia + Hmolpedia 2020); something which had stalled, years back, owing to previous wiki editing and slowness problems.|
|12 Mar||Hit the 5,500 article mark (article: eddy).|
