In 1953, Dodd, during one of the Princeton social physics project meetings, headed by John Stewart, began speaking about “chemical moles” being equivalent to “number of people” in respect to units involved in social physics calculations.
In 2007, Libb Thims, introduced the term “hmol”, based on a combination earlier discussion (2006) with Georgi Gladyshev, on how many people would be the correct number to define a “mol of humans”, e.g. for social Gibbs energy calculations. Thims later came to learn about the earlier ideas of Dodd, and others.
