In human chemistry, the chemical symbols for a man includes: M, Fx, or Hu with subscript, depending.
The following are quotes:
- “Suppose chemical substances to be represented by a number of men and women of varying degrees of strength of character and "attractiveness", and suppose the marital combinations or what Goethe called the "elective affinities" between these men and women to be determined by certain mysterious "laws." If a man strong in character should mate with a woman, weaker but otherwise "attractive," or vice versa, one set of observers might affirm that the union was due to the man's superior potentiality or masculinity, others might maintain that the real strength in the combination or "affinity" lay in the woman's "attractiveness "; or vice versa. Curiously enough, these anthropomorphisms, which seem so plausible and fascinating in Goethe's novel, are daily and hourly employed to explain the facts of chemical combination.”
