Hmolpedia is an A to Z Encyclopedia of Human Thermodynamics, Human Chemistry, and Human Physics, aka the "hmolsciences", from hmol-, meaning "mass unit of humans" (Dodd, 2A), + -science, meaning "to know", on topics related to the derivation, from first principles (Anaximander, 2525A), of the characteristic functions of human chemical thermodynamics, the new reaction-based "matter and motion" theory (Ostwald, 49A) replacement for "god theory" (Meslier, 226A).
Hmolpedia, as of Oct 66AE [+2021] or “Oct A66” (in A-notation), dates all years using the new exact science framed elementum calendar (BE/AE) dating system, as summarized below; also visit: date tables and NTE notation for clarification.
Hmolpedia is an encyclopedic information repository, collating citation material, definitions, and people related to the "manifold avenues" (Roegen, A16) of ideas, concepts, and theories, opened during so-called "secret principle" (Newton, 238A) attempts at the chemical thermodynamic study of existence, experience, being, becoming, universally defined, in a continuity or "equation of continuity" (Maxwell, 77A) sense of things. 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. For a simplified, as much as possible, summary of Hmolpedia, see the Reddit: "explain Hmolpedia like I'm five" (ELI5) attempt.

Advanced perspective | Thermodynamic lens
The Hmolpedia point of view, aka the hmolscience vantage, is the physico-chemical way of looking at things, aka "advanced perspective" (Lovecraft, 33BE [+1922], or "thermodynamic lens" (Donohue, 59BE [+2014]) view, shown adjacent, as it has recently been called, wherein all activity and reactivity, hydrogen to human, i.e. all "proton-electron configurations" (Weiss, 39BE/+1925), as shown adjacent, are seen, or rather objectively observed, from a universal, reaction mechanism point of view. Each of these heated A to B formation reactions
Is governed by one rule, namely: ΔG < 0. Here, via the characteristic equations, each "overall" reaction mechanism, describing step-by-step form change, has to show an increase in entropy, which correlates to a decrease in free energy (ΔG < 0), which can be quantified by measuring the formation energy of each species, hydrogen to human (Dolloff, 20AE [+1975]). The Holbachian geometrician (Holbach, 185BE [+1770]) type of mind would be able to see all the details of this, in respect to the energies involved, in sharp view. The lens of this hmolscience view has its visual acuity philosophically-grinded (Spinoza, 279BE [+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.
Molecule logo | Atom 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, 200BE/+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 | Terminology reform
The words and terminology employed in Hmolpedia articles, since 57AE [+2012] JHT-initiated physico-chemically neutral term reforms, have been penned using an explicit "abioism" basis, e.g. "existography" (reality-based word) used vs "biography" (myth-based word) disabused, wherein only reality-based and or physico-chemically recognizable words, are employed. The following are the core abioism publications, ordered chronologically, prerequisite to the use of applying the pure and exact sciences of physics, chemistry, and thermodynamics to the unpure, inexact, and folklore terminology laded so-called "life sciences", social sciences, and humanities:
- Pearson's Grammar of Science (§9: Life) (63BE/+1892)
- Lotka's Elements of Physical Biology (§1: Regarding Definitions) (30BE/+1925)
- Sherrington's Man on His Nature (17BE/+1938)
- Crick's Molecules and Men (11AE/+1966)
- Thims' Abioism: No Thing is Alive (66AE/+2021)
Shown adjacent is Libb Thims' new book Abioism: No Thing is Alive, which gives a modern summary of things. A plant is shown on the cover, sprouting out of the ground, turning toward the sunlight, defined NOT as "alive", but powered. This can be compare to the man and woman turning towards each other to "kiss", shown adjacent, on the cover of Thims' 52AE [+2007] Human Chemistry, Volume One, where, in §5: Molecular Evolution, it is explained, via the molecular evolution table, that the scientific "standard model" of aspartic acid (C4H7O4N) being "not alive", but RNA (C10H12O6N5P) being "alive", coenzyme A (C21H36O16N7P3S) being "more alive", and humans (CHNOPS+20E) being "filled with life", was classified as "clearly ridiculous backwards logic", in need of reform. All three, plant, man, and woman, are CHNOPS+ type bodies, moved by gravity and the electromagnetic force.
This new view of the movement of things, i.e. the "matter, motion, and reaction" view, not only does not recognize the word "alive" (Sherrington, 17BE/+1938), but now rejects it, as a fully-defunct term, rooted in pure Egyptian-Greco-Roman mythology. Alive is based on the model that a divine force, namely: ankh (Egyptian), Is (Greek), vis (Roman), made clay humans become animate. Chemical thermodynamics, which defines molecular movement, animation, and reaction differently, does not recognize the former mythical division.
Hmolpedia, to date years, uses the new elementum calendar dating system, invented in 2020 ACM (65AE or A65), conjointly with the Needham-Thims notation (1BE/+1954) scheme, to redate all Dionysian calendar (BC/AD) years; this is an ongoing work-in-progress.
In Dec 66AE (A66), aka “Dec 2021” in vulgar years, a newer elementum calendar based A-notation (#A/A# or #A#) shorthand was devised, so to reduce the number of letters (A vs BE or AE) used to signify the year, as a reduced alternative to the bulkier Needham-Thims dating notations or standard elementum dating (#BE/#AE), employed previously.
In the A-notation method, where A means “atoms seen” (not after or Anno, as in AE), if the letter A is before the #, e.g. A2 (or 1957) or A65 (or 2020), it means that the # is the number of years after atoms were first seen. If the A is after the #, e.g. 10A (or 1945) or 2305A (or 350BC), it means that the # is the number of years before atoms were first seen. If the year is 1955, this is written as 0A, with the letter after the zero, per reason that atoms (A) were seen in Oct of this year (the latter half of the year).
The following table shows a synopsis of various dating notation systems, including Needham-Thims dating notation (BE/AE and -/+), the elementum dating notation (BE/AE), and the newer shorthand elementum dating notation (A# or #A):
|Khufu||Khufu pyramid (built)||(4555BE/-2600)||4555 BE [-2600]||2600 BC||-2600||4555 BE||4555A|
|Leucippus||Atomic theory (invented)||(2415BE/-460)||2415 BE [-2415]||460 BC||-460||2415 BE||2415A|
|Lucretius||On the Nature of Things||(2415BE/-60)||2015 BE [-60]||60 BC||-60||2015 BE||2015A|
|Ovid||Metamorphosis||(1947BE/+8)||1947 BE [+8]||8 AD||+8||1947 BE||1947A|
|Goethe||Elective Affinities||(146BE/+1809)||146BE [+1809]||1809 AD||+1809||146 BE||146A|
|Muller||Atoms seen (discovery)||(0AE/+1955)||0AE [+1955]||1955 AD||+1955||0 AE||0A|
|Bazargan||Thermodynamics of Humans||(1AE/+1956)||1AE [+1956]||1956 AD||+1956||1 AE||A1|
|Beg||New Dimensions in Sociology||(32AE/+1987)||32AE [+1987]||1987 AD||+1987||32 AE||A32|
|Thims||Elementum calendar (invented)!||(65AE/+2020)||65AE [+2020]||2020 AD||+2020||65 AE||A65|
|Thims||Abioism: No Thing is Alive (dated 66AE)||(66AE/+2021)||66AE [+2021]||2021 AD||+2021||66 AE||A66|
In sum, the new SI-unit based Anno Elementum (BE/AE) dating system, dates events to the zero year, where +1955 = 0 AE, when atoms were first seen by humans, specifically by the eyes of Erwin Muller, on 11 Oct 0AE [+1955], at Penn State University. The "Anno Elementum" dating system was devised on 25 Apr 65AE [+2020] by Thims. Years before 0AE [+1955] are defined as "Before Element" (BE) years. Years after 0AE [+1955] are defined as "After Element" (or Anno Elementum) years: The following, to exemplify, shows the spine of Libb Thims' 11 Oct 66AE published book Abioism: No Thing is Alive, dated using the new secular-scientific Anno Elementum dating system:
This means that the book Abioism: No Thing is Alive was published in the 66th year since humans saw an "atom" (element: tungsten), an object that was predicted to exist 2,450-years ago (25th century BE) by Leucippus. The mythical "common era" Dionysian calendar (BC/AD) dates, some shown in the Painean calendar (BCM/ACM) notation scheme, are also employed in parallel, as the transition period actuates.
1st - 50th millennium AE
The following is the elementum calendar, dated forward 5,000+ AE years, to the 50th century AE, and backwards 5,000+ BE years, to the 50th century BE, from the zero year (0 AE) when "atoms were first seen"
|1st millennium AE||2nd millennium AE||3nd millennium AE||4th millennium AE||5th millennium AE|
|0AE||1 AE - 1000 AE||1001 AE - 2000 AE||2001 AE - 3000 AE||3001 AE - 4000 AE||4001 AE - 5000 AE|
1st century AE | 1 AE - 100 AE
50th - 1st millennium BE
|5th millennium BE||4th millennium BE||3rd millennium BE||2nd millennium BE||1st millennium BE|

Egyptian-Greek isopsephy | Etymology
This new edition of Hmolpedia, as compared to Hmolpedia 65AE [Hmolpedia 2020] or Hmolpedia 61AE [Hmolpedia 2016], contains dictionary-style entries for many dominant English, French, German, and Latin key terms, shown with deep etymology decoding, back through their Latin, Greek isopsephy, and Egyptian hieroglyphic ciphers, back to 5155BE [-3200] in mythical roots, is possible. Compare the word "philosophy" (new) vis "philosophy" (Hmolpedia 65AE), e.g., to see how the term is now decoded, etymologically, via its Greek alphabet cipher key "phi" (Φ), back to its Egyptian Ptah solar fire drill isopsephy secret meaning roots.
This new "deep etymology" method began, after Thims, in Dec 65AE [+2020], deciphered the "theta" (Θήτα), symbol: Θ, part of Maxwell's famous 85BEs [+1870s] Greek shorthand for thermodynamics: Θ∆ics and "ΘΔ = ThermoDynamics", in respect to the secret name meaning of its (NE:318) isopsephy value, as being equivalent to Helios, the Greek sun god. The implications of this are that most modern English words, have their core etymology established in Latin-Greek-Egyptian ciphers, coded into the Greek alphabet before Hesiod penned his Theogony 2715 BE [-750], the words theogony, being a th-based (Θ-based) word. This usurps the defunct PIE etymology theory of word origins. Key terms, herein, are decoded, if possible, back before 2955 BE [-1000].

In Apr 50AE [+2005], Hmolpedia was launched, by Libb Thims — a ramification early circa 40AE [+1995] ruminations on how chemical engineering thermodynamics reaction "prediction" methodologies scale up to the "social" interaction-reaction level, sexual interactions in particular. Hmolpedia, initially started out as an A-to-Z online thermodynamics-of-humans glossary-of-terms, made in the form of anchor links and webpages, hosted at HumanThermodynamics.com. These resulted from a need to have functioning online reference links for definitions of key "terms", e.g. "human chemistry" (E.B., 104BE [+1851]) or "human molecule" (Sales, 166BE [+1789]), which did not yet exist on the Internet as webpages, but were historically extant as defined terms, with articles and books written on them, centuries or more prior. In May 50AE [+2005], with Wikipedia being a new platform, Thims began, in a water-testing-stage, to write new terms at Wikipedia, a wiki-page seen as a better and faster alternative to that of making webpage anchor-links to definitional terms. This resulted in Thims, over the course of 17-months, making over 10,000 edits and starting 85-new articles. Thims, however, on Oct 52BE [+2007], eventually resigned from Wikipedia, owing to so-called ingrained cultural resistance to key "terms" or ideas, controversial to status quo, which that might tend overthrow or challenge one's belief system. In Dec 52BE [+2007], Hmolpedia became an independent wiki.

The following are reviews of Hmolpedia, 52BE [+2007] to present, divided between those (a) "out of the loop" (con), meaning either biased (↓), confused (~), and or lacking (ignorant) in basic the "big picture" basic knowledge subjects, e.g. evolutionary psychology, mate selection, religio-mythology, partial differential equations, physical chemistry, and chemical thermodynamics, and those (b) "in the loop" (pro), meaning generally understanding or intuiting what is going on:

“The only good things about Hmolpedia is its ranking of geniuses, biographies, and history pages. The rest is just sh*t. They are trying to explain topics found in sociology through formulas in thermodynamics. These are two different things. Some of the basic concepts like exergonic or endergonic might apply to humans, but more detailed systems like corrosion do not:
The H20 splits into H2 and OH and the Fe bonds with the OH (left out the coefficients and electron numbers). So how does that relate to humans? It does not. Psychological concepts like hindsight bias also won’t translate into thermodynamics.”
- Note: amid the process of redating 6K+ articles (52AE-Oct 66AE), a majority will be found in the "old dating system", as the redating process actuates.
- Note: In Sep 65AE [+2020], Hmolpedia, in 5,376 articles, penned (Dec 52AE/+2007 to Aug 65AE/+2020) at WikiFoundry.com / WetPaint.com (see: wiki), via EoHT.info, was split into two wikis, newly hosted on the MediaWiki platform, namely: Hmolpedia 65AE (EoHT.info) (see: wiki), an archived edition, and Hmolpedia (Hmolpedia.com), i.e. this wiki, a new active edition

- (a) Note: this new A-dating (#A/A# or #A#) shorthand was devised on 12 Dec 66AE; following prolonged rumination on how to use the fewest symbols (numbers, letters, etc.) to date years, in the elementum calendar system.
(b) Note: our use of two letters (BC or AD) vs one (A), to clarify, is based on the phrase ‘Anno Diocletiani’ (AD), referring to Diocletian (244-311AD), Roman emperor from 284 to 305.
