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 name Hmolpedia is based on the "hmol", the mass unit of chemical reactivity between humans. 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.
In 2005, Hmolpedia began, via the writings of Libb Thims, simply as an online glossary "page", turned pages, at HumanThermodynamics.com, added, out of necessity, so to be able to hyperlink to basic definitions of terms and names, related to the derivation of human chemical thermodynamics, not then extant on the Internet. In Dec 2007, following water testing of writing articles at Wikipedia, Thims launched the "Human Thermodynamics Wiki", at the WetPaint.com wiki farm. This eventually grew into Hmolpedia. A 10-volume print set of Hmolpedia was published in 2016.
Hmol | Human reactivity unit
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.
Generally, in order to understand the basic logic, argument, and structure of Hmolpedia, in respect to the derivation of human chemical thermodynamics (HCT), one will need to have studied, as prerequisites, basics chemistry, physics, and mathematics, through partial differential equations, physical chemistry, and chemical thermodynamics, preferably chemical engineering thermodynamics, generally have a degree in chemical engineering or equivalent, and be inquisitive, in a one nature sense, about the general nature of being a human in the construct and dynamics of the universe, not being perturbed by religious bias, sensitivities, and ingrained anthropisms. If one is an over-typical person, his or her first reaction to Hmolpedia, more often than not, will result in confused laughter.
In 2018, a group of Mongolian-American users began making logos, shown adjacent, for a Molpedia YouTube channel, launched in 2019, themed on “making short videos with vines that are funny or sarcastic”. While this could be coincidence, just as the "mol" is the mass unit of reactivity between chemicals, so is the "hmol" the mass unit of reactivity between humans; hence "mol reaction" and "Molpedia" may be themed, in respect to "reacting" to funny videos, in some way on Hmolpedia?
