Hmolpedia is an A to Z Encyclopedia of Human Thermodynamics, Human Chemistry, and Human Physics, aka the "hmolsciences", from hmol-, meaning "mass unit amount of humans" (Dodd, 1953), + -science, meaning "to know", on topics related to the derivation, from first principles, of the characteristic functions of human chemical thermodynamics, the new reaction-based "matter and motion" theory (Ostwald, 1906) replacement for "god theory" (Meslier, 1729).
Hmolpedia, launched in 2005, as an online thermodynamics of humans hyperlinked glossary-of-terms, turned 2007 wiki-format, is an information repository, collating the "manifold avenues" (Roegen, 1971) of ideas, opened during "secret principle" attempts at the chemical thermodynamic study of existence, experience, been, "be", being, becoming, and wanting-to-be universal continuity. 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, 1922), or "thermodynamic lens" (Donohue, 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, 1925), as shown below, are seen, or rather objectively observed, from a universal, reaction mechanism point of view:
Each of these reactions is governed by one rule:
according to which 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, 1975). The Holbachian geometrician (Holbach, 1775) 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, 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, 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 (see: terminology reform) in Hmolpedia articles, since 2012 JHT-initiated physico-chemically neutral term reforms, have been penned using an explicit "abioism" basis (see: life terminology reform), wherein only reality-based and or physico-chemically recognizable words, e.g. "existography" (reality-based word) used vs "biography" (myth-based word) disabused, are employed. The following is a 10 Sep 2021 (66AE) author review copy of Libb Thims' new book Abioism: No Thing is Alive, showing the spine (and the title page) dated using the Anno Elementum date of 66AE, meaning published in the 66th year of the first visual of an "atom" (element: tungsten):
Anno Elementum | Dates
Hmolpedia employs the new SI-unit based Anno Elementum (BE/AE) dating system, events to the zero year (1955AD = 0AE) when atoms were first seen by humans, specifically by the eyes of Erwin Muller, on 11 Oct 1955, at Penn State University. The "Anno Elementum" dating system was devised on 25 Apr 2020 by Thims. Years before 1955 are defined as "Before Element" (BE) years. Years after 1955 are defined as "After Element" (or Anno Elementum) years:
Egyptian-Greek isopsephy | Etymology
This new edition of Hmolpedia, as compared to Hmolpedia 2020 or 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 3200BC in mythical roots, is possible. Compare the word "philosophy" (new) vis "philosophy" (Hmolpedia 2020), 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 2020, deciphered the "theta" (Θήτα), symbol: Θ, part of Maxwell's famous 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, which overthrow the currently popular PIE etymology methodology. This new etymological basis was in place before Hesiod penned his Theogony (750BC), which is a th-based (Θ-based) word. Key terms, herein, are decoded back before 1000BC or "2955BE" in the new Anno Elementum dating system.
