In dating systems, Thimsian calendar (LH:31), aka "elementum calendar", “BE/AE dating system”, "atomic era", "atomic enlightenment", "Anno Elementum", "atoms first seen" calendar, aka Muller years or the cesium-tungsten definition of time, refers to the dating of years with respect to the zero year when atoms were first "seen" by the human eye, an event which occurred in 1955 AD, in Dionysian calendar years, seen by the eyes of Erwin Muller. The following table gives a basic summary of how to convert BC/AD dated years into BE/AE dated years:
|200BC||1954||← 1955 →||1956||2020||2021|
|1 Before Elements||1 After Elements|
|1 Anno Elementum|
|1 Atomic Era|
|1 Atomic Enlightenment|
Synonyms: BE/AE dating system, "Muller calendar" (tentative), "atoms seen dating system", Anno Elementum (Latin) calendar, atomic era (AE) years, among others. The Thimsian calendar (BE/AE) is an SI-unit themed, secular, scientific upgrade and replacement for the myth-based Dionysian calendar (BC/AD), one that is culturally-based to Roman or western culture eras.
Tungsten | W
On 11 Oct 1955, Erwin Muller saw tungsten W atoms. The following, from the advanced perspective view, is Muller, chemical species Hu, derived or synthesized over time from hydrogen H atoms, on 11 Oct 1955 (0 AE), observing one of his own kind, namely the element tungsten W:
In 2012, Libb Thims, while drafting Purpose: in a Godless Universe?, his first attempt at an atheism-explicit themed book, albeit one that stalled out, began search for a secular, scientific, or non-deity based dating system, so to date the title page, without reference to a god, which is what the AD dating system is, i.e. god-based. It is incorrigible to the mind, for a strong-minded explicit atheist to date an atheism-focused book with a theism-dated title page. In others, we now date seconds to the oscillations in the cesium atom, but years to
The first attempt, in this direction, was to date years to the invention of the printing press, in 1450, by Gutenberg, aka an "Anno Gutenberg" or "Anno Printing", based dating system.
This was followed by: "Anno Newton", as suggested by Goethe (c.1810), "Anno Goethe" (2014) dating system (BG/AG), and or dating years to the first documented sighting of Halley's comet, among one or two others. Thims also began to use the Paine dating system (Painean calendar), i.e. ACM/BCM, to clarify focus. These, however, lacked something, to be enabled fully?
Pandemic | Inception
On 25 Apr 2020, Libb Thims, in the wake of the first month of the pandemic, aka a genius hiatus effect phenomena, having been freed to make progress in human chemical thermodynamics, in respect to writing and research, invented the BE/AE dating system, so to solve the "pressing" need to date the title page of his drafting Human Chemical Thermodynamics manuscript in particular, scientifically.
Specifically, on 25 Apr 2020, in ACM dating system years, Thims, upon waking at about 10:30 PM CST, after sleeping nine-hours, envisioned that it would be good to employ a new “atoms first seen” based dating system in his drafting HCT manuscript, then at the 135+ page level, in possible tentative upgrade from primary intended "before Goethe and after Goethe” (BG/AG), “before Christ myth and after Christ myth” (BCM/ACM), which he was then employing, and possibly in thought a “before Halley’s comet and after Halley’s comet” (BH/AH) dating system, then prefaced or idea-staged, as dating systems to be employed, for “key” dates of importance, began drafting the spacetime logic that a good, non-anthropomorphic, non-mythical, start date, for a physico-chemically neutral dating system, would be the “day” that a human first “saw” an atom.
Thims, the following day, when the HCT-manuscript was at 135-page level, texted a friend, as shown below, that he was "thinking about", in an excited way, using a new "atomic era" dating system to date the copy right page of his new book:
- “What are you doing? I think I’m going to date my new [Human Chemical Thermodynamics] book using an ‘atomic era’ dating system. Today would be 25 Apr 65 AE, in this new dating system.”
On 26 Apr 2020, 9:28AM CST, eleven hours later, Thims, after penning a summary of this newly-conceived “reality-based” BE/AE (or BA/AE) dating scheme on the online “atomic dating system” EoHT.info article, then added this new dating acronym notation to his Hmolpedia existography, using three dating systems (AE, AG, and ACM)
Which translated to the effect that Thims was “synthesized” (born) in the year 17 Anno Elementum, or 222-years after the birth (synthesis) of Goethe, or 1972-years after the start of the Roman recension of the Osiris-Horus resurrection Christ myth.
This new atomic era dating scheme, would be Thims' fourth attempt at a secular calendar system, over the last nine years or so, as discussed further below (see: calendar reform history).
Of note, the fourth "idea stage" dating system, ruminating in Thims' mind, prior to the BE/AE system, was the BH/AH (before Halley's comet/after Halley's comet) dating system, dating years from the zero year when Halley's comet was first "see" by humans.
Hence, to exemplify usage, Libb Thims, after being born (synthesized) in 17 Anno Elementum or in the 17th year of the element; calculated a 26-element human molecular formula on 47AE, i.e. on the 47th year of the element, or 47-years after elements were seen' and developed the Anno Elementum dating system in 65AE (2020AD), or 65-years after elements were observed.
In 2021, Thims had redated all existographies in Hmolpedia, showing both the BE/AE start and end dates, of the existence of a person, in conjunction with the common BC/AD dates, albeit using the BCM/ACM notation (Paine, 1802).
Thims, in addition, was beginning to incline towards the dating of years after 2020 (65AE), i.e. the pandemic year, e.g. 2021 (66AE), 2022 (67AE), 2023 (68AE), etc., using only only the new "AE" notion, but keeping the classic or common dates for years 2020 or before, unchanged, i.e. leaving as is, as confusion tends to result when reverse editing is attempted in this direction. A chronology of the dating notation switch can be seen in the Nov 27 to Dec 7 range of Thims personal notes.
The following are related quotes:
- “I have been reading your works since some time ago, and I may say I find them very interesting, not merely because of its content, but because it has conclusions and insights I had independently arrived at a relatively young age (one could say I am still at a relatively young age [born 52 AE]), although I reached some diverging results in some topics. Due to the comprehensiveness of the subjects addressed, I don't intend to do that in a single message, but I hope that through rational discussion we may be able to get closer to the truth.”
- “I appreciate your [elementum] calendar.”
