In terms, chnopsology (CR:5) (LH:2) (TL:7), from CHNOPS, meaning "six essential elements", + -ology, meaning: "theory or science", refers to the study of elemental species that are carbon C, hydrogen H, nitrogen N, oxygen O, phosphorus P, and sulfur S based, generally of the heat-powered evolving animate state type.
The following are quotes:
- “Regarding your statement that ‘we can’t deny that bio/whatever-ology is different from a rock, a table, a chair, glass, etc.’, correctly, however, I would say that "CHNOPS-ology", chnops-ology, or chnopsology, is the namesake you are looking for.”
