In 2007, Libb Thims, in his Human Chemistry, based in large part on evolutionary psychology and mate selection studies, and the Clausius (c.1860) theory that entropy can be divided into multiple parts, e.g. spin, trajectory, or vibration, defined the the entropy S of a human in terms of the following five components:
wherein SP is the entropy associated with: personality, social graces, "character", and dependability, SO is entropy of: occupation, possessions, or money, SI is entropy of intelligence, education, or knowledge, SS is entropy of status or prestige, and SN is entropy of inner nature, values and ambition.
Thims then defined the enthalpy H of a person in terms of the following eight components:
where HAvg is the enthalpy associated with averageness, HAge is enthalpy associated with age, HS is enthalpy associated with symmetry, HX is enthalpy associated with one's sexuality, in respect to testosterone-to-estrogen ratio, HF is enthalpy of fitness, and HC is enthalpy of complexion.
Accordingly, the Gibbs energy, quantifying a person, in a given state, in respect to the standard model of the "free energy of formation" of an atomic thing, from the elements in their standard state, as shown below:
where T is the absolute temperature, is defined as follows:
Here, accordingly, i.e. according to the "human free energy of formation" and "human free energy table" conceptualization of states of existence of humans, which is but a scale up of the standard "Lewis framework" (1923) of the free energies of chemical species, when the various Gibbs energies of a human, in a given state, symbolized: GHu, where Hu is the chemical symbol of a human, are known, then reactions to other humans can thereby be predicted, via predicting or determining chemical reactions, based on the initial state free energies of the reactants involved, wherein the spontaneity criterion, shown below:
