In numbers, 1955 (LH:10) refers to the year Erwin Muller saw "atoms" with his own eyes. This year, in 2020 AD, became defined as the "zero year" (0 AE) in the newly-invented Thimsian calendar (Thims, 65 AE).
In 1909, Jean Perrin proved that atoms exist by calculating Avogadro's number using three different methods, all involving liquid phase systems. First, he used a gamboge soap-like emulsion, second by doing experimental work on Brownian motion, and third by confirming Einstein’s theory of particle rotation in the liquid phase.
In 1926, Perrin won the Nobel Prize in physics for proving, conclusively, the reality of the “atomistic description” of nature—a recognition often said to mark the final and formal acceptance of Leucippus’ c.450BC atomic theory by science "officially". Atoms, at this point, however, still had never been seen by a human.
Zero year | Thimsian calendar
On 25 Apr 2020, Libb Thims, at about 10:30 PM CST, defined the "zero year", of his new scientific calendar (Thimsian calendar), to be the year "1955", in respect to the year atoms were first seen. The year 1955 became redefined as zero Anno Elementum (0 AE). Henceforth, years, in Hmolpedia articles, began to be dated either as "before elements" (BE) or "after elements" (AE) were seen years, respectively. Thims began, firstly, to re-date the years of existographies with this new BE/AE calendar system, and the title page of his working manuscripts, likewise.
- Feb 24 | Steve Jobs (1955-2011) | Co-founder of Apple; pioneer behind the smart phone (IQ:165|#616)
- Apr 3 | Jonathan Dowling (0-65 AE) (1955-2020 ACM) | An the first openly published abioist.
- Feb 20 | Oswald Avery (1877-1955) | did the experiments (1944) proving it is DNA, not protein, as to how traits are inherited (Venter, 2017) (IQ:170|#480)
- Apr 18 | Albert Einstein (76 BE-0 AE) (1879-1955 ACM)
- Apr 10 | Pierre Teilhard (74 BE-0 AE) (1881-1955 ACM)
Here, we note, firstly, the significance of the fact year of the "death" (destatement) of Einstein, the co-inventor of spacetime, or "space and time" merged into one fabric-like description of void or vacuum around the mass of bodies, coincides with the "birth" or start of the new Anno Elementum (0 AE) dating system for the "time" passage of years.
Secondly, we note that in the newly-awakened Anno Elementum era, which can be taken as a universal "standard gauge" of years since since "modern enlightenment" began, for any form of "extraterrestrial intelligence" in the universe, wherein the atomic view of things is taken as a matter of bedrock fact, that in 40 AE (2000 AD), or 40-years post atoms seen, that Jonathan Dowling (0-65 AE) (1955-2020 ACM), while working at NASA, during the time of debates about the possibility of "extraterrestrial life" on Mars, that the question of "what is life?", from the physico-chemical point of view, or PCN-view, began to be pushed forward into the "abioism" range of logic, according to which known that atoms, by default, are not "alive", then so to are all "animate forms" made from atoms, be it "human life" or extraterrestrial life", which therein "become redefined" (Pearson, 1892).
Thirdly, Teilhard, in the big picture, was the last intellectual to make a cogent attempt to bridge physics, chemistry, thermodynamics, evolution, and religion.
