The opening section of the "Abioism Glossary" of Thims' 66AE Abioism: No Thing is Alive, showing the first ten terms, of a then listed 78 physico-chemically neutral (PCN) terms.

In terms, abioism glossary (LH:6) is an A to Z glossary of so-called "science grammar correct" (Pearson, 1925) terms, each redefined according to a physical or physico-chemically neutral (PCN) point of view, which can be used to replace the now defunct terminology related to all life-terms and or bio-phrases terms, words, and concepts.

“If these terms: ‘unit-mass of living matter’, ‘resultant of organic forces’, ‘continuity of organic substance’, etc., biologists have adopted from physics, are used figuratively, we ought to find them re-defined.”
Karl Pearson (1892), Grammar of Science (§9.1: The Relation of Biology to Physics, pgs. 328-31) [1]

Historically, it was Karl Pearson, in his §9.1: The Relation of Biology to Physics, of his Grammar of Science (1892), sample quote shown above, followed by Alfred Lotka, in his §1: Regarding Definitions, of his Elements of Physical Biology (1925), who first pressed upon the need to use precise unambiguous terminology, when using physics and chemistry based terms, when discussing movements and phenomena and reactions inside and or between organisms, plants, animals, humans, or societies. Lotka specifically tells us that our current system of so-called "biological nomenclature" has been handed down to us from Genesis, which is pretty correct, and hence is in need of a grand overhaul, physico-chemically speaking.


The following is the current active abioism glossary, first published in print form in the opening section of Libb Thims' Oct 66AE book Abioism: No Thing is Alive, listing a total of 78 physico-chemically neutral (PCN) terms:[2]

In 2008 or 2009, during the start of the "biothermodynamics" article, of Hmolpedia 2020, the archived 9 Dec 2009[9] version is shown below, is generally when abioism glossary began to form, specifically with respect to the inability to define "bio" thermodynamically:[2]

In 2010, during the construction of the Goethe timeline, the standard existence divisions of a person, namely: "birth", "life", and "death", were upgraded to the physicochemical neutral terms: reaction start, reaction existence, and reaction end, shown bolded above, done as show of respect to Goethe, the first person to actually question these terms, when looked at from the chemical reaction point of view. These were the first three PCN-terms introduced into Hmolpedia.

On 23 Dec 2012, Libb Thims, in the wake of the defunct theory of life debate, started the "life terminology upgrades" page, wherein he began to list historically-employed physico-chemically neutral term-equivalent replacements. Some of these are listed on the "life terminology reform" page.

In mid 66AE (2021), Thims, in the Abioism draft book, began making a fully-categorized abioism glossary.[1]
