The basis model of synthesis, from Greek syn-, meaning: "sun", plus -thesis, meaning: "a placing", namely elements placed together by the sun or heat, to form things like: water, rocks, or humans.[1]

In chemistry, synthesis (TR:158) (LH:4) (TL:162), from the Greek sun-, "together" + and -thesis, "placing", as compared to “analysis” (TR:79), refers to the putting together of atoms, by the workings of the universe, into a bound state.


The term "synthesis", is the current, physico-chemically neutral, term upgrade, to religio-mythology laden term "creation" (or "create").


The following are related quotes:

“The formation of a compound by putting together the elements of which it is composed, is termed ‘synthesis’, from two Greek words, sun-, together, and thesis, a ‘placing’. The decomposition or taking to pieces of a compound body, in order to discover its constituent elements, is called ‘analysis’, from two Greek words, ana-, thoroughly, and lusis, loosening.”
