Title Started Notes

Thims, Libb. (2021). Human Chemical Thermodynamics: Chemical Thermodynamics Applied to the Humanities[3] (pdf). Publisher.[4]

1995
HCT cover (21 Dec 2020) 3.jpg
Started in the "this idea" stage, in Thims' mind, in 1995 (see: progress report); the Journal of Human Thermodynamics (2005), Human Chemistry (2007), and The Human Molecule (2008), have been three precipitates or preliminaries towards this end. In 2013, a draft Chemical Thermodynamics: with Applications in the Humanities was initiated; which by 2018 had been retitled Human Chemical Thermodynamics.[5]
Abioism: No Thing is Alive, Life Does Not Exist, Terminology Reform, and Concept Upgrade[6] 2007
Started in Thims "clearly ridiculous" statement, in his "Molecule Evolution" (2007) chapter; followed by his "Defunct Theory of Life"[7] JHT article; then the "defunct theory of life debate" (2009 to 2012), then life terminology reform, "abioism" (2015) coining, and the BPE 2016 conference talk “Lotka’s Jabberwock: on the ‘Bio’ of BioPhysical Economics”, co-presented, so to say, with a prerecorded video by Alfred Rogers on "Abioism: Life Does Not Exist".[8]

The book aims to cover the historical of the defunct theory of life query, from Fernel (1548) to Goethe (1809) to Lotka (1925) to Sherrington (1938), to the "abandon the word alive" (Crick, 1966) advise, to the recent various "life does not exist" views (Dowling, 1998; Rogers, 2012; Jabr, 2013), to the 2009 to 2013 debates, to the coining of "abioism" (Thims, 2015), to life terminology reform, and the present.

In May 66AE, Thims combined all the main 2008 to 2018 "Defunct Life Theory Debates" threads into one pdf file.[9]

Thims, Libb. (2016). Smart Atheism: for Kids.[10] Publisher.

2015
Smart Atheism for Kids.png
Book aimed to be written for or dedicated to an "age five" Thims mindset[11] type of child; some draft work has been attempted. [N1] First draft 300+ pages of book based on world's fist "atheism for kids" (2015) class on video, taught by Thims and co-host Thor.

Goethe, Johann (1809). Elective Affinities: Illustrated, Annotated, and Decoded (translator: James Froude [1854]; illustrator: Philipp Johann [1885]; editor: Libb Thims). Publisher.

2012
Elective Affinities, IAD.png
Started: 7 May 2012, in the form of 36-online chapters[12], plus dozens of side decoding pages. This, however, largely became a "cart before the horse" issue. Project stalling in: 2013-ish.

Thims 2000: Greatest Geniuses, Minds, and Thinkers Ever[13]

2008 Officially started with a Word file list "15 people" (Jan 2008), said to have IQs of 200 or above;
Shannon Thermodynamics: Science's Greatest Sokal Affair 2011 An expanded print book version of the 120-pdf JHT article: “Thermodynamics ≠ Information Theory: Science’s Greatest Sokal Affair” (2011)[14], which has a growing Google Scholar ranking, and has been influential, so far, even in its current form; compare: Entropy (journal) or Entropy (Wikipedia) to see the prevalence of objectionable nonsense).

Overview

2002 Mar 2005

In 2002, Libb Thims began drafting a manuscript entitled Human Thermodynamics, which ballooned into three volumes, which by about 2003 to 2004, totaled a 1,000+ pages, which Thims printed out twice, mailing one copy, a poor man's copyright copy, through the US Post Office, back to him, which is still in its sealed envelope; some excerpts of which available online.[15]

  • Thims, Libb. (2003). Human Thermodynamics, Volumes 1-3 (only few copies printed).[16] Unpublished.
  • Thims, Libb. (2004). Cessation Hypothesis (40 copies printed, reviewed, and returned).[17] Unpublished.
  • Thims, Libb. (2005). The Third Question: Matter, Energy, and the Human Molecule - the Explanation of Existence in 23 Chapters.[18] Unpublished.

In 2004 to 2005, this effort began to stalled out, when the realization began to emerge as to just how much was involved in this attempting-to-be project, of explaining all of human existence via chemical thermodynamics.

Publication efforts then came to be split up into sections; some unfinished[19], others, as listed below, reaching the finalized publication stage.

List

Left: the Journal of Human Thermodynamics, above left, active from 2005 to 2015, was an attempt to establish a publishing platform for active researchers, worldwide, interested in topics and subject matter related to thermodynamics applied in the humanities. Center: the 2007 two-volume Human Chemistry, above center, building on the work of Johann Goethe (Elective Affinities, 1809), predominately, along with John Fairburn (Human Chemistry, 1910), and Georgi Gladyshev (Thermodynamic Theory of the Evolution of Living Beings, 1997), residually, outlined the basics of the science of humans, viewed ‘macroscopically’, i.e. from an advanced perspective, looking down on us, as reactive surface-attached ‘chemicals’, inclusive of the history of underground logic of human chemical reaction theory, and introduced the model of the human chemical bond ‘A≡B’. The 2008 The Human Molecule, above center, introduced, in an easy-to-read manner, the history of viewing people ‘atomically’ as chemicals or large molecules. Right: Hmolpedia, at right, then at 4,050 online article level, printed as 10-volumes, totaling 6,496-pages printed, comprising 3,494,877-words, all done, ironically, to explain how a four-symbol equation ‘ ΔG < 0 ’ applies, in detail, to the humanities.

Quotes

The following are related quotes:

“Once I desired to consult some books which were not in the library but which I had seen on the shelves in Gibbs' office during a lecture. I ventured to ask whether I might borrow them. He was entirely willing. As I picked the books off the shelves I noticed that the pages had not been cut and inquired whether I might cut them, to which he replied : Certainly, if you think it worthwhile. Probably I looked abashed, for he added: The author kindly sends me all he writes; there is a great deal of it; I sometimes feel that a person who writes [publishes] so much must spread his message rather thin.”
Edwin Wilson (c.1890), “On asking to borrow an uncut book from Gibbs’ office shelves” [24]

End matter

Notes

N1. (a) The following semi-finished book was drafted online, following a draft cover made in Jun 2015, based on the Ludwig Feuerbach's Christian beliefs dissolved in a vat of nitric prophecy:

  • Thims, Libb. (2015). Morality Squared (main[25], two[26], three[27], end matter[28]). Publisher.

The work progressed upto three wiki-pages, until 27 Jul 2015.

(b) Note: on 10 Aug 1015, the “Zerotheism for Kids”[29] class was taught; amid which, following the Mr. O (29 Jul 2015) comment: “what you’re doing to those children is child abuse and ‘brain washing’, in my view”, the “idea” or envisioning for a “children’s atheism bible”[30] arose, per reason that being forced to teach children (ages: 2, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11) that Noah’s is a myth and that big bang is the new model, is that they had already been “brain washed”, per reason that they didn’t have the correct book, in the first place.

(c) On 2 Aug 2015, Thims was doing a quick poll of 12-people on title choice (wherein "smart atheism"[31] dominated), for a book themed like a children’s atheism bible; on Sep 2016, Thims began drafting Smart Atheism: for Kids, which by 18 Oct 2016 reached the 309-page mark:

  • Thims, Libb. (2016). Smart Atheism: For Kids (309-pgs) (pdf). Publisher.

It was split into three smaller-size print volumes (of five estimated); then got stalled out at the “Roman recension” period; also, stopped, owing to the realization that the "cart was being put before the horse"; namely, Thims was trying to print a children’s version of human chemical thermodynamics, before he had finished the standard adult college level textbook version.
