In terms, biology (TR:512) (LH:2) (TL:514), from Greek bio- (βίος) (NE:282), a secret name word cipher for the diameter of solar circle with circumference of "888", the number of the sum of solar magic square rows and diagonals, and or "Jesus" (NE:888), depending on perspective, + -ology, meaning: "study of", is a defunct terminology (Thims, 2009), formerly employed to refer to the study of the "life force" (Roose, 1797) of the class of CHNOPS+ things, in the range of bacteria to humans. The current working PCN term-replacement for biology is "chnopsology" (Thims, 2012) or "powered chnopsology", depending.

Overview

Defunct | Status

Biology is a defunct scientific term. Presently, it has been superseded by either "chnopsology", in general usage, or “powered chnopsology”, in precise language usage. A species of bacteria, e.g., is a CHNOPS+11E species, a fish is a CHNOPS+16E species, a human is a CHNOPS+20E species. These species have to be "powered" to be considered what historically has been referred to as a living species, e.g. a single bacterium in the "living state", in defunct speak. powered CHNOPS+20E species, etc. The study of this class of species exists, but because “bio” does not exist (see: abioism), there cannot be a name for a field of study for a non-existent thing. The term "biologist", likewise, has been upgraded to chnopsologist.[1]

Etymology

Greece

In 520BC, Pythagoras, in his Egyptian-learned astrotheology formulas, had encoded the terms ‘zoe’ (NE:815) and ‘bios’ (NE:282) into a divine solar number geometry.

In c.495BC, Heraclitus, in fragment 48, supposedly, was using the term “βίος” in the sense of life.[2]

In c.470BC, Pindar was said to be using the term “βίος” in the sense of “life after death”.[3]

In 430BC, Euripides, in one of his works, supposedly, employed the term “bio” or prefix “bio-”, meaning as “life” in Greek; some, such as Georg Misch (1950), claiming this is where "bio" originated.[4]

Germany

In 1767, Michael Hanov, German meteorologist, historian, and mathematician, in his Natural and Physical Dogmatic Philosophy: Geology, Biology, Phytologia General and Dendrologia, devoted a chapter to the “general biology of bodies” (de biologia corporum generali).[5]

In 1797, Theodore Roose, German anatomist and physiologist, in his Outlines of the Theory of Life Force, defined the term “biology” the doctrine of study of the “life force”, which is a scientific god synonym.[6]

In 1800, Karl Burdach, German physiologist and neuroanatomist, used the term “biology” to denote the study of morphology, physiology, and psychology.[7]

In 1802, Gottfried Treviranus, German physician and naturalist, in his Biology: Philosophy of Living Nature for Naturalists and Physicians, defined biology as follows:[8]

“The objects of our investigation will be the various forms and manifestations of life, the conditions and laws under which held the state of life and the causes, whereby the same is effected. The science that deals with these things, we will designate by the name of biology or the science of life.”

England

In 1799, Thomas Beddoes, English physician, defined biology as "doctrine of the living system in all its states", which he classified as subset term of physiology.[9]

In 1819, William Lawrence, in his Lectures on Physiology and Zoology, and the Natural History of Man, building on Lamarck and others, defined “biology” as the “science of life”.[10] This Lawrence usage, presumably owing to the controversial nature of the materialism and atheism promoted, came to be cited by OED as the "first English" usage of the term biology, which is incorrect.

France

In 1802, Jean Lamarck, French naturalist, in his Researches on the Organization of Living Bodies, defined biology as follows:[11]

Biology: this is one of the three divisions of terrestrial physics; it includes all which pertains to living bodies and particularly to their organization, where developmental processes, the structural complexity resulting from prolonged action of vital movements, the tendency to create special organs and to isolate them by focusing activity in a center, and so on.”

Lamarck, used the term also in the sense of the study of “the unitary force over all species from the rudimentary worm to the splendor of man.”[12]

Term reform

See main: Life terminology reform

In 1925, Alfred Lotka, in his “Regarding Definitions” chapter, of his Elements of Physical Biology, basically concluded that its physically impossible to define the term “biology” in terms of physics, chemistry, and or thermodynamics.[13] Moreover, attempts to do so will only lead to scientific Jabberwocky.[14] Thirdly, he predicted that in the future, the term “biology” would become superfluous, proven defunct, unneeded in exact science, and hence replaced.

Chnopsology | Coining

In the early 2020s, in the wake of the defunct theory of life debate (2007 to 2013), Libb Thims began to look for exact science replacements for all bio-related or life-related terms.

In 2012, Thims, amid ongoing forum discussions with Jeff Tuhtan and David Bossins, coined the term chnopsology as a replacement for biology, as follows:

“We can’t deny that bio/whatever-ology is different from a rock, a table, a chair, glass.”
— David Bossens (2012), “Thread: Life (post #1)” (location: Defunct Theory of Life), Hmolpedia 2020 Forum, Jun 16 [15]
“Watch the following chemical party video. The carbon atom is the central entity of your ‘whatever-ology’ subject, i.e. ‘carbon-ology’, being that carbon is a light-sensitive molecule, meaning that it has the property of flexibility and hence animation and as such is very ‘reactive’ or the ‘life of the part’ as the video shows. The argon (Ar) is like the ‘rock, table, chair, glass’, notice how she is very non-reactive (although, technically, glass is silicon-based; rock can be seen has having a certain amount of reactivity, in the big history geochemical view of earth structure change. More correctly, however, I would say that “CHNOPS-ology” (chnops-ology or chnopsology), is the namesake you are looking for, e.g. compare: ‘living systems [animate systems] are predominantly CHNOPS (carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, and sulfur’ (Andrulis, 2012).”
— Libb Thims (2012), Post: 15: Chemical Dance & CHNOPS”, Jun 18 [15]

The clarification "powered" (i.e. "powered chnopsology") came later, being slowly added into various Hmolpedia articles in brackets wherever the term biology was found. This was done to clarify the sense that the CHNOPS+ species in question, e.g. bacteria, plant, animal, etc., has to be powered or heated in order to be what we formerly classified as a moving "bio-species".

“‘Chnopsology’ is an interesting alternative, to ‘biology’ or ‘animateology’, only time will tell which term takes hold?”
Jeff Tuhtan (2012), “Animateology” (post: 2) (page: biology), Hmolpedia 2020 Threads, Jul 12
“It, therefore, will be some time to come before god is jettisoned firstly from bio-logy (powered chnopsology) and then secondly from all of the humanities.”
Libb Thims (2015), “Morality Squared” [16]
