Hmolpedia is an A to Z Encyclopedia of Human Thermodynamics, Human Chemistry, and Human Physics, aka the "hmolsciences", from hmol-, meaning "mass unit amount of humans" (Dodd, 1953), + -science, meaning "to know", on topics related to the derivation, from first principles, of the characteristic functions of human chemical thermodynamics, the new "matter and motion" theory (Ostwald, 1906) replacement for "god theory" (Meslier, 1729).
Hmolpedia, launched in 2005, as an online thermodynamics-of-humans glossary of terms, turned 2007 wiki, is an information repository, collating the "manifold avenues" (Roegen, 1971) of ideas, opened during "secret principle" attempts at the chemical thermodynamic study of existence, experience, being, becoming, and continuity, universally conceptualized. The subject matter of Hmolpedia, presently, is summarized by 400+ core terms, employed by 200+ key thinkers (of 1,600+ existographies), working to solve the top 10+ key queries.
Prototypes, precursors, forerunners, and publications thematic to Hmolpedia include: Perrot's A to Z of Thermodynamics (1998), Sorokin's mechanistic school of sociology (1928), Lange's History of Materialism (1865), Henderson's Gibbs-Pareto circle (1932-42), Kyle's "Mystique of Entropy" (1988), Ball's Critical Mass (2004), Nietzsche's 1,067 Will to Power fragments (1888), Montaigne's Essays (1590), Bayle's 3,000-article Historical and Critical Dictionary (1702), and the 100+ two-cultures disciplines, respectively, to name a few.
The main hmolscience vantage, is the physico-chemical or "advanced perspective" (Lovecraft, 1922), wherein all activity and reactivity, hydrogen to human, as shown below (compare: warm pond), is seen, or rather objectively observed, from a universal point of view:
Namely, through the "thermodynamic lens" (Donohue, 2014), its acuity philosophically- grinded (Spinoza, 1676), by the first and second law of thermodynamics, as the top 2000 geniuses and minds tend to intuit.
People, according to the advanced chemical thermodynamic lens view, are chemical things whose "states" of existence are discerned by the combined operations of inexact heat differentials, exact Gibbs energy differentials, and kinetics, give or take, conceptually defined within the "system", shown adjacent, which is situated on a solar-heated earth substrate surface, expanded and contracted daily, in irreversible Clausius transformation cycles.
Logo | Favicon
The atom favicon , is thematic to the view that humans are powered bound states of 26-elements, a collection of "thinking" or "tormented" atoms (Voltaire, 1755); a powered animate thing. The Hmolpedia logo, i.e. atomic human in lotus position, is thematic to the view of one's "self", conceptualized as an ever-changing electromagnetic mind state or wave pattern, found in a turnover rate based bound state atomic geometry, or powered CHNOPS+20E existive.
Hmolpedia, in dating existographies and publications, employs both the Dionysian calendar (BC/AD), albeit in the Painean calendar (BCM/ACM) notation scheme, and the new SI-unit based Thimsian calendar (BE/AE) dating system, dating events to the zero year (1955AD or 0AE) when atoms were first seen by humans; albeit, for dates on or after 2021AD (66AE), Thimsian (AE) dates are tending to be employed alone.
- Note: In Sep 2020, Hmolpedia, in 5,376 articles, penned (Dec 2007 to Aug 2020) at WikiFoundry.com / WetPaint.com (see: wiki), via EoHT.info, was split into two wikis, newly hosted on the MediaWiki platform, namely: Hmolpedia 2020 (EoHT.info) (see: wiki), an archived edition, and Hmolpedia (Hmolpedia.com), i.e. this wiki, a new active edition
