Thims, in overview, is a thermodynamicist, Goethean philosopher, and paradigm change initiator noted for his work in hmolscience, or the science of "human molecules" (see: human molecular formula; hmolscience periodic table), the apex of which is the science of human chemical thermodynamics, one noted fruit of which has been the 2009 solution of the great problem of natural philosophy (see: defunct theory of life), and in general for his prolonged social heat efforts to ignite the two-centuries-aged hidden, stagnated, buried and riddled Goethean revolution. Thims' central work and research, in an overarching perspective, has been to understanding how the following mathematical thermodynamics chemical reaction puzzle:
“The quantity '–ΔG' may be thought of as the driving force of a [human chemical] reaction.”
quote shown with human chemical reaction mental bracket insert, in Thims' 1995 chemical engineering student mindset—a puzzle rooted deep in the 1,158 Gibbs-Clausius equations—where ΔG is the change in the Gibbs free energy of the process, translates or scales up to the "drives" of human existence, e.g. sex drive, death drive, purpose/destiny/meaning-envisioned drive, etc., and more importantly to the "predictions" or rather reaction feasibilities of mate selection (see: love thought experiment), processes technically called "human chemical reactions" (see: theory), the colloquialism of the image of love the chemical reaction, and reproduction produced therefrom, being the dominant example. This logic can also be rephrased, as done by Lewis, as follows: “no actual process is possible unless ΔG is less than zero” a chemical thermodynamic statement called the Lewis inequality for natural processes. The problem itself, historically, is riddled in veiled conundrums—such as whether "crystals think" or alternatively whether the "writing of a book is a chemical reaction", solution alternatives puzzled on by Lewis himself in 1925—and one that traces back to what is called the elective affinities problem, first discussed by German polymath Johann Goethe in 1796 (see: Goethe timeline). The following Thims' Jun 2013 Google Scholar profile: 
In short, Thims' research efforts, beginning in 1995 as a curious hobby, and in 2001 as a more intense research project, have been to understand how the inequality ΔG < 0, where ΔG = ΔH - TΔS, applies to the governance and regulation of human existence, impersonally (in relationships) and socially (within a society), viewed purely in terms of a super-observer perspective, time-accelerated human reactions (surface-attached chemical reactions) point of view—in other words, in variational speak, how differentials (time variations) of Gibbs free energy change dG (available energy release or absorption) apply to the prediction and spontaneities of interactions and reactions between people, particularly in regards to the formation and dissolution of bonds, the intimate relationship marriage bond and reproduction in particular, over the course of decades of time (changes in states of experience). In categorization terms, this defines Thims as a human free energy theorist, a rare group of about forty thinkers.
The type of processes discussed above, in this "universal rule" (Gilbert Lewis, 1923) of human existence and experience, are substrate-attached isothermal-isobaric processes, i.e. earth-bound reactions, not harnessed in some way for the production of useful work, such as in an electrochemical work in a battery, but where the chemical reactions “run freely” like the combustion of a fuel or the action of an acid on metal. Thims has been the first to "thoroughly" follow this question through as to what happens when one applies this universal rule to freely going reactions between people. Precipitates of this query have been the development of the newly emerging human molecular sciences (hmolsciences) of: human chemistry, the study of reactions between human molecules, human physics, the study of forces involved in human interactions and human bonding, and human thermodynamics, the study of heat, energy, and work, and aspects of systems of human molecules.

See main: Libb Thims (citations)Thims’ work, research, and efforts, since going public in 2005, has been increasingly mentioned and or employed in a number of noted publications and symposiums, including: the MIT Net Advance of Physics Encyclopedia (Karen Keck, 2010), Advanced Thermodynamics Engineering textbook (Kalyan Annamalai, 2011), symposium “Use of Art Media in Engineering and Scientific Education” (Alec Groysman, 2011), and The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to Sociology (Alan Sica, 2012); and influential in the development of a number of books, articles, and dissertations, including: Russian science journal Becthиk (Georgi Gladyshev, 2007), book Find a Good Man and Keep Him (Satch Ejike, 2008), ecological engineering PhD dissertation "A Modeling Approach for Alpine Rivers Impacted by Hydropeaking Including the Second Law Inequality" (Jeff Tuhtan, 2011), book Mr. Carbon Atom (Mark Janes, 2012), and book Debates of the Hmolpedians (David Bossens, 2012), to name a few.

In 2013, of interesting curiosity, Thims’ 500-person HT pioneers page, a timeline which itself to 10-years of extensive research to construct, was cited in the University of California, Berkeley research misconduct investigation into accusations nonreductive materialism theory misappropriation in the so-called Juarrero-Deacon affair, as disproof of American Wall Street whistleblower turned complexity-emergence theorist Michael Lissack’s claim that American neurological anthropologist Terrence Deacon, head of the UC Berkeley anthropology department, is guilty of what Lissack calls "plagiarism by negligence" for not citing American philosopher Alicia Juarrero in his 2011 Incomplete Nature: How Mind Emerged from Matter:
“There is no excuse, to even tolerate the idea that in the Internet Age it is acceptable … to fail to see what others have written before publishing his own work. Plagiarism by negligence is still plagiarism.”
To quote from the investigation committee report: 
“To adopt this novel standard for defining plagiarism would create some "interesting" situations. Take, for example, the intellectual arena of human thermodynamics, a topic that both Deacon and Juarrero address in their respective books. Hmolpedia: An Encyclopedia of Human Thermodynamics, Human Chemistry and Human Physics maintains a webpage, "HT pioneers," which lists scientists and writers who over the years have contributed theory and logic to the understanding of the thermodynamics of human existence. At the moment the page lists some 505 individuals. How many of these authors would Deacon and Juarrero have to cite to avoid a charge of plagiarism under Lissack's novel definition? Note that this list does not include either Juarrero or Deacon, both of whom have written on the thermodynamics of human existence. So even the encyclopedic Encyclopedia of Human Thermodynamics may not meet Lissack's standards of complete citation.”
The committee, citing the Thims’ case-in-point example work, that even in the Internet/Google Books age it still takes over 10-years of research to uncover every theorist in a given field (thermodynamics applied to questions of human existence in this case), thus “rejected [Lissack’s] attempt to redefine plagiarism”, concluding that "failure to cite an earlier work with the same subject matter, even an important one, is not by itself research misconduct."
Hmolscience | Paradigm change
The following is the gist the 5000-year paradigm change in belief system that Thims since 1995 has been actively working to bring about:
Namely replacement of the older religio-mythology belief system, which currently grips the belief systems of 3 out of every 4 persons on the planet, with the new modern physical science (hmolscience) view of humans formed not from "clay" (see: clay creation myth) and given the "breath of life" (see: creation by breath), but rather formed from 26 of the 92 naturally-occurring elements of the periodic table (see: hmolscience periodic table) through a process of chemical synthesis and given a prolonged reaction existence state of experience. While many of the crude ancient beliefs have been interred, e.g. belief in creation of humans on a potter’s wheel, a large number of residual beliefs remain: the belief in the "theory of life" being the most dominant example—a concept that is NOT recognized by modern chemistry and physics (see: defunct theory of life)—the current religio-mythology based morality, guiding many about the world in their paths presently, being a second framework not recognized by chemistry and physics (see: moral symbols and moral movement), albeit a core belief for many deeply intertwined with notions of purpose and meaning.
A precipitate of Thims' research efforts is Hmolpedia, an online wiki encyclopedia, launched in late December 2007, a growing collection of 2,800+ articles centered around the decipherment of the Lewis inequality of natural processes applied to human interaction processes, a set of articles attracting some 65,000+ page views per month, which is slowly becoming the Internet's number one go-to site for thermodynamics information; a cite which, as of 2011, has been used to produce, guide, and or facilitate a number of PhD dissertations, among other research activities.
In 2013, Thims began to assemble the online site into a print volume, current estimates indicate the encyclopedia will be a six-volume, 3,800-page book set (a mock-up version of which is shown adjacent).
Reverse engineering | Human spontaneity
See main: Reverse engineering puzzleThe central description of Thims' work is captured the puzzle as to how the chemical reaction spontaneity criterion (ΔG < 0) applies to human relationships, particularly in regards to the "favorability" predictive aspect of free energy tables, in the sense that measure of Gibbs free energy change, if it could be measured at the human social scale, can be feasibly used to determine whether any given mate selection relationship is favored or not-favored, thermodynamically. Theoretically, it should be a feasible objective. Shelves of chemical thermodynamics textbooks and literature have been written, in the last century, explaining chemical processes and reactions, from the scale of small chemical reactions, e.g. the combustion of methane with oxygen, up to the level of chemical processes and reactions in larger process, such as ATP, protein, and cell membrane dynamics, subsequently, the problem, as it stands, is how to "reverse engineer" all of this logic, as embodied in the framework of the 1,158 Gibbs-Clausius equations, back down to explain reactions and processes at the human-human interaction scale?
|A visual depiction of the "great problem of natural philosophy", as French naturalist Etienne Saint-Hilaire described it in circa 1836, namely how "animate matter" (as the defunct theory of life views things) or "life" (as Saint-Hilaire viewed things), such as a gecko, arose from the collection of 92 naturally-occurring elements of the periodic table in the context of the nebular hypothesis? Serbian-born American electrical engineer Nikola Tesla claimed to have solved the problem in 1915, although his solution was riddled with panbioism. The complete solution was arrived at in 2009 by American electrochemical engineer Libb Thims, via the defunct theory of life.|
Historically, in circa 1995, while an undergraduate chemical student at the University of Michigan, Thims began to wonder how the Gibbs free energy model of reaction spontaneity, particularly as discerned through Beckhap's law, applies to the male-female reaction, the central process of society, in which a man meets a women, they fall in love (20 percent of people fall in love at first sight and marry that person), produce a child; an entity which then begins to detach from the family household at about the fifteen-year mark; a reaction process that 85 percent of people will go through.
This so-called "spontaneity criterion puzzle" is a sort of reverse engineering problem-puzzle as to how to apply the well-established chemical reaction spontaneity criterion to the modeling of the spontaneities of human-human reactions, particularly in regard to mate selection, so as to be able to 'predict', in a theoretical (or actual) sense, spontaneous reactions in human relationships.

The central issue, with this thick riddle, is the understanding of how enthalpy change ΔH and entropy change ΔS are to be understood in human chemical reaction terms, over the course of multiple decades, so as to yield a quantitative measure of Gibbs free energy change, between two points in time, differing by multiple years. It takes a minimum of at least 5-7 years, even for a well-schooled chemical thermodynamicist, to arrive at even a partial idea, interpretive visualization, or intuitive understanding as to how to go about gaining insight into this puzzle. A precipitate of this effort is the EoHT wiki, launched in 2007.
In sum, Thims' central research, since circa 1995, has been to elucidate, quantitatively, how the basic, multi-year human reproduction reaction (relationship, sex, and offspring), which 85% of people go through, can be energetically predicted, via free energy determinations:
____G = H – TS
as quantified using the spontaneity criterion (ΔG < 0), which states that spontaneous chemical reactions must show a decrease in Gibbs free energy over the extent of the reaction, i.e. the summation of the enthalpic (ΔH) and entropic (–TΔS) factors involved in the system interaction must show a decrease in value over time, if the reaction or process is to be universally favored. This dissection of human interactions can also be expressed via the relation between the chemical affinity A or the force of reaction existent between reacting species to Gibbs free energy change ΔG:
A = – ΔG

as proved in 1882 by German physicist Hermann Helmholtz in his "The Thermodynamics of Chemical Processes", and applied to the modeling of human relationships by German polymath Johann Goethe in his 1809 Elective Affinities. In sum, in order to understand love in the context of relationships and how one correctly chooses who to love, one has to be able to measure enthalpy ΔH and entropy ΔS changes involved in human activity?
See main: Love thought experimentThe specific human chemical equation, which Thims originally began to mediate on is the following pair of human mating reactions in which a child B is produced:
_____M + FA → BA
_____M + FB → BB
where M is one male, FA is a hypothetical female, FB is a second hypothetical female, BA is a child product of the first pairing, and BB is a child product of the second pairing; according to which the universal rule, according to modern physical science, to determine which reaction should be chosen, is that the reaction most energetically favored (exergonic) will be the one that shows the most decrease in Gibbs free energy G over time in the extent of the reaction—which means that thermodynamically favored reactions adhere to the equation:
_____ΔG < 0
_____ΔG = ΔH – TΔS
_____ΔH – TΔS < 0which implies that in order to choose who to marry one must arrive at an intimate understanding of how the time variations of function "ΔH – TΔS" operate in the course of human existence, decade to decade.

The use of chemical equations to model human reactions, to note, is a very deep subject. The fact that only eight people, in history (see human chemical reaction history), are known to used chemical equations, such as above, to model human processes, such as colloquial love the chemical reaction motto, exemplifies this. The dimension of time, in this example, being the difference between the initial "state" of the reaction, or day in which the pair first begin to react, and the final state of the reaction, signified as the day, some 15 or more years later, at which point the offspring product begins to detach from the parental structure, going of on its own. The spontaneity rule itself is relatively simple, quantified by the following simple equation: ΔG < 0. It is the understanding of quantities that compose free energy:
namely internal energy U, pressure P, volume V, temperature T, and entropy S, among other facts (such as chemical potential μ, external forces, gravity, free energy coupling, etc.), however, which, invariably, require a new field of research and conceptual understanding, where people are defined technically as boundaried "systems of human molecules", a subject never rigorously done before, in spite of the fact that over 500-people have published views on the theoretical application of thermodynamics to human activity. An example of the difficulties encountered, in synthesizing this application, is the understanding of the "end state" (15 or so years after first sex), of the ordering of the system of humans, involved in the process of a human reproduction reaction (sex), such as above, which, in mechanism, is defined more exactly as a double displacement reaction (double elective affinity) of the form:

_____M + F → M≡F + Child
It is at this point, that the subject of chemical / physics nature of the human bond "M≡F" becomes a central subject of study, one that has never been done before. Nearly two-thirds of the 2007 textbook Human Chemistry, written by Thims, was devoted to the elucidation of the nature of human chemical bonds considered purely as a chemical bond. 
In any event, pairing feasibility can be understood via chemical thermodynamics, namely by the fundamental equation characterizing the relation between affinity A and free energy G change:
_____A = – ΔG
in conjunction with the spontaneity criterion rule defining spontaneous reactions:
_____ΔG < 0
In short, whichever mating reaction actuates a greater negative change in the Gibbs free energy, or positive affinity A change:
A = TΔS – ΔH

will be more energetically-favored and less prone to divorce (debonding). Beyond this, there are complicating issues associated with the quantification of external forces, chemical potential factors, gravity, equilibrium effects, system boundary issues, free energy coupling, enthalpy-entropy compensation, etc., factors that each effect human chemical reactions. Thims is currently interested in trying to understand how the Gibbs fundamental equation, in which the change in energy U of a system can be written as the product of an intensive and an extensive parameter:
where Xi is an intensive quantity, such as pressure or temperature, and Yi is an extensive quantity, such as volume, can be applied to a human social system.
▬▬▬See main: Libb Thims (history) and Human Chemistry (textbook) (origin)
Thims' central interest, which began as a chemical engineering student in 1995, has been to understand how human relationships work or operate energetically according to the science of chemical thermodynamics, in particular human chemical reaction prediction using the logic of spontaneity as embodied in free energy tables, in conjunction with theories and studies done in evolutionary psychology.
The essential moment occurred while in a senior level thermodynamics class at the University of Michigan. During this course, he began to wonder if anyone had ever applied the logic of chemical reaction prediction, as embodied in standard thermodynamic tables of free energies, enthalpies, and entropies, to the extrapolative prediction of human chemical reactions, such as between potential intimate pairs in reproductive reactions?
The seed behind the puzzling question of mate selection, however, had existed in Thims’ mind prior to his chemical engineering studies. At one point, years earlier, Thims’ had drawn up an tabular spread-sheet of the nineteen top females that he had dated, each of whom he could potentially marry (many of which had openly stated that they were in love with him), listing each girlfriend at the horizontal and attributes or mating desireabilities on the vertical, each attribute with an associated weighting factor, and attempted to theoretically or logically determine who would be in his best interest to marry. This type of analysis, however, led to indeterminate results. Sometime in and after 1995, Thims began to apply chemical thermodynamics to the problem, and began to see through the haze in circa 2001.

In 2002, in efforts to coordinate writings on the thermodynamic study of human life, Thims founded the Institute of Human Thermodynamics, a non-profit, educational-minded, global network of human thermodynamicists. In 2005, Thims started the Journal of Human Thermodynamics, ISSN 1559-386X, a place for publication of articles on the thermodynamics of human life. In 2007, Thims and Russian physical chemist Georgi Gladyshev started the Encyclopedia of Human Thermodynamics. Thims also maintains one of the world's largest thermodynamics book collections.
In September 2007, building on the shoulders of Johann von Goethe, with his 1809 Elective Affinities, and American navel engineer William Fairburn, with his 1914 booklet Human Chemistry, Thims published Human Chemistry (Volume One) and Human Chemistry (Volume Two), the world's first-ever standardized textbook on human chemistry (824-pages).  One of the first to apply Thims' human chemistry to practical application was American social scientist Satch Ejike who, in his 2008 book Find a Good Man and Keep Him, presented a physical science based guide to help informed modern single women find a man.
In March of 2008, Thims published his second book The Human Molecule, a short outline of the historical development of the conception of the human being as an individual ‘molecule’, i.e. "human molecule". Thims ideas on human thermodynamics and human molecules, to note, were developed in a duplicate manner, but independent, to those of American historian Henry Adams (1910) and English physicist Charles Galton Darwin (1952).

Gladyshev and Thims
See main: Gladyshev and ThimsOf significant influence to Thims, in his early research years, was the work of Russian physical chemist Georgi Gladyshev.  In particular, sometime between 2002 to 2004, during which Thims began to undertake the project of writing a short book on the subject of "human thermodynamics", Thims had come across a number of individuals who seemed to be using a similar logic, in certain respects, to his own, including: Ilya Prigogine, John Avery, Jing Chin, David Hwang, and Gladyshev, among others. In this group, however, Gladyshev seemed to be the closest competition in that he was using a fully-rigorous Gibbs free energy fundamental equation, as shown below, from his 1997 book Thermodynamic Theory of the Evolution of Living Beings:
_____where T is the temperature, S the entropy, U the internal entropy, p the pressure, V the volume, X and x, a generalized conjugate variable force pair, μ the chemical potential, and m the mass of the matter or chemical entering or leaving the system, respectively, to explain the "formation of some society", where ΔG, he says, can be estimated by calculating the work that went into building the structure of the society, all in an effort to formulate a Gibbs-based thermodynamic approach to the evolution of life; such as in contrast to the "blind random chance" motto of evolution:
“The opinion that evolution is ‘governed’ by chance is not quite correct: the joint action of random events in a thermodynamic system should always satisfy the requirements of thermodynamics. The fan of thermodynamics always has a fixed direction.”
In short, Gladyshev seemed to be going deeper into the 1,158 Gibbs-Clausius equations, than as compared to other HT researchers—and the collision with Gladyshev convinced Thims that he needed to have a deeper mastery of the work of Gibbs.
See main: Libb Thims (publications); Working papersThe core precept of the science human thermodynamics, defined by English physicist C.G. Darwin in 1952 as the "thermodynamical study of systems of human molecules", arrived at by many after years of study of thermodynamics applied to human existence, e.g. Jean Sales, Henry Adams, Pierre Teilhard, etc., is the understanding that when viewing a “system” of people, as in a society (social system), from the atomic theory or periodic table point of view, one is actually viewing a system of "human molecules", no different than any other system of reactive molecules attached to substrate.
In this direction, in 2008, Thims published the 120-page, equation-free book The Human Molecule, readable at the high school level, a book functioning as basic starting point for those interested in human thermodynamics. This was a followup to his 824-page Human Chemistry, a more rigorous, equation-filled textbook on the subject of human chemistry, published the year prior, a book found to be difficult for the layperson to read.

Tabula rasa | Education
Thims has a rather peculiar educational background, comparatively speaking, as far as scientists and engineers go. He was synthesized from parentage of little advanced education; but from the start was ingrained with a strong inquisitiveness, similar to Scottish physicist James Maxwell's famous age three repeated query "What's the go 'o that?", and deep sensitivity to boredom, similar to German polymath Johann Goethe's famous age eighty to "die of ennui" phrase.
Thims' earliest recollected question, asked sometime around the age of 3 to 5, while being led through a local park, was "where does God live?" (a followup, supposedly, to an earlier query: "what happens when you die?", although he does not recall asking this specific question), to which Thims was told "he lives in that gardener's shack", a small white toolshed near the edge of the park. The satirical response to this question—a query that embodies the notion that both "God exists" and that "life exists", a viewpoint ingrained into the minds of most young children of the world from inception, sat in the back of Thims' mind for some time, that is until he would latter enter into scientific studies and comparative mythology and religion studies in adulthood, which resulted to position him into the Dawkins number 10 category of belief system. The idiocy of this situation is summarized well by the following 1883 synopsis, by English Egyptologist Gerald Massey, of the learn-unlearn process the majority of intellectuals (readers) are forced to go through: 
“It takes the latter half of all of one’s lifetime to unlearn the falsehood that was instilled into us during the earlier half. Generation after generation we learn, unlearn, and re-learn the same lying legendary lore. Henceforth, our studies must begin from the evolutionist standpoint in order that they may not have to be gone over again.”
A second turning point in Thims educational process occurred at about age about 7 to 8, during which time second grade school reports of Thims being extremely "bored" in class were sent to his parentage (description on report cards); the result of which, at the end of the school year, Thims was held back (in a sense "flunked" second grade), the family moved to a new school district, and he was made to completely retake the entire second grade over again—and from that point forward, for the next eleven years, Thims completely detached from school and curricular activities and at the age of 19, graduated a year behind his peers (average graduation age for sharp students: 15-18), owned no books, of any sort (0 book personal library), having never taken any sort of formal science classes—chemistry in particular—or advanced mathematics classes; graduating at or below the average grade level. This period, wherein Thims' focused not on learning, but instead on the socializing, romancing, and the art of partying, might well be classified as Thims' first educational detachment—a social IQ enriching period—though one in which, book-knowledge speaking he, at the age of 19, had a complete tabula rasa mindset—a blank slate, so to speak, in regards to preconceived notions about reality.
|Thims' 1994-1995 chemical engineering coursework (University of Michigan), during which time (see: progress report), in one of these classes (thermodynamics I, thermodynamics II, physical chemistry, or heat and mass transfer) the seed for the search to understand the subject of "human chemical thermodynamics" was planted (see: progress report).|
In the midst of this mental knowledge stagnation period, Thims' mother terminated, when he was 12, which categorizes him, as he latter came to discern (c.1999), among the early parental death group; a phenomenon common to founders of scientific revolutions (Darwin, Newton, Maxwell, Copernicus, Gibbs, Nietzsche, etc.)—Thims, in this context, would go on, beginning in 1995, to begin spearheading or rather continuing, unbeknownst to him, the Goethean revolution, the human chemical thermodynamics paradigm shifting revolution started by Goethe in 1796 (see: Goethe timeline).
Following high school graduation, then, following nearly two decades of complete intellectual stagnation (socialization aside), while rummaging about in the education and career path section of a local library, Thims read that subject of chemical engineering was the most intellectually difficult degree and most well-rounded science degree one could obtain and further more (as he was told later) that the subject of chemical engineering thermodynamics was the "weeder" course of the chemical engineering, and decided that, although he didn’t quite understand what the point of existence was, that going after the hardest objective, whatever the reason, would be in the direction of the greatest fear and hence the correct path, wherever it may lead? Within four years, then, Thims had gained acceptance into the highest ranked engineering schools in the America, the University of California, Berkeley (#2 US ranking in chemical engineering; #3 world ranking in chemical engineering), in particular, home to the historical Lewis school of thermodynamics; eventually finishing, for financial savings reasons, at the University of Michigan (a top 5 US engineering school), finishing in the top 8% of his chemical engineering graduating class, of 162 students, with a 3.85 GPA, in 1996.
Thims then, in an effort to pull up his GPA higher, completed a second degree in electrical engineering, in 1998, at the University of Michigan, figuring that the two degrees combined would well round out, intellectually speaking, whatever he was to do thereafter.

“If one does not know what went on for the last three thousand years, he or she remains ignorant, merely surviving from day-to-day.”
in effect that what there is to be learned in science past the basic general scientific knowledge BS chemical engineering degree level more efficiently and more purely learned on one's own. 
During these undergraduate engineering years, however, greatly heightened in excitement with each step in the knowledge attainment process, Thims chanced into a conversation, in the hallway, with a random chemical engineering graduate student, to which Thims queried him “so what do we learn in graduate school?” a query to which Thims was told, in rather education-halting terms, “we learn the same things over again”, only in more detail, or in a more advanced way, or something along these lines. This was, no doubt a wrench in Thims’ plans; meaning that to waste time learning the same thing over again (a recall back to his second grade experience), seemed, to Thims, to be a pointless endeavor and not a road to be traveled. This mental visualization is captured well in the following summary by American genius and creativity theory psychologist Dean Simonton: 
“These days it is virtually impossible to get anywhere in these fields without a JD, MD, or PhD. On the other hand, most artistic creators, revolutionary scientists, and other more unconventional achievers may have much to lose and little to gain form continuing with more than a smattering of higher education. They may need enough formal training to acquire certain basic knowledge and skills, such as the ability to write well and to carry on an informed conversation. Beyond that, the increased inculcation of more specialized disciplinary preoccupations may only interfere with more important pursuits. For instance, success in many fields is strongly correlated with voracious and omnivorous reading, and undisciplined activity that may suffer under academic demands.”
This was what might be called Thims' second detachment; after which, following a relocation out to Chicago, he came into the view that better results would be obtained learning what could be learned on one's own, during which period he became any autodidact, studying in all areas of knowledge, in particular medicine, neuroscience, evolutionary psychology, chemistry, physics, and thermodynamics, amassing a 1,250+ book science library. A central philosophy, anchored up during these years is what Thims calls the "Buffett number", the number of books one has to read in any given subject to know more than any given professor of that subject, which is 100, based on the famous anecdote recounted by American business mogul Warren Buffett who, at age 16, had read at least one hundred books on business, and entered the Wharton School of Finance, wherein upon arrival he reported that ‘he knew more than the professors’.
The years 2001 to 2011, in Chicago, were devoted to independent research aimed at the fields of human chemistry, human thermodynamics, and human physics, with the bench mark of obtaining a Buffett-level of proficiency in pure thermodynamics; while at the same time working towards the completion of an MD-PhD.
|The template design for American electrochemical engineer Libb Thims' 2010 conceived C.P. Snow-themed Two Cultures University Department, teaching the subject matter structured about the interdisciplinary relationship between second law (Clausius) and the various branches of the humanities (Shakespeare), bridging the gap between the famously left-brain right-brain divided "two cultures"; the synthesis of which being first captured in the mind of Goethe (see: Goethe timeline), and tested in the coursework of Leon Winiarski at the University of Geneva (1894-1900), in his thermodynamics-based socio-political economics course (see: social mechanics), similar to Jurgen Mimkes (modern); being the embodiment of Henry Adams' famous 1910 call to American teachers of history (see: letter) to being teaching chemistry and thermodynamics in history class.|
See main: Two cultures university departmentIn 2010, Thims began teaching human chemistry and human thermodynamics, as an invited guest lecturer, to various engineering, sociology, and economics schools, in and about the Chicago area and also internationally (Thims' fifth university lecture will be at University of Pitesti, Romania and their fifth Econophysics and Sociophysics Workshop, 2013).
In 2011, Thims, via Hmolpedia forums and email consultations Q&As, began to mentor graduate students through their PhD dissertations, particularly through the applied human thermodynamics portions. Sometime during during this period, the visualization came into view that it would be wise to center this effort at a university department formally, rather than as it is currently being done, as an informal hobby.
In 2012, Thims began proactively contacting various university department heads in loose discussion in an aim to found America's first two-cultures university department covering:
(a) Human thermodynamics | similar to:
● Leon Winiarski’s 1894 social mechanics course, University of Geneva; Switzerland; as outlined in his 1900 sociology symposium article "The Teaching of Pure Political Economics and Social Mechanics in Switzerland".
● Henry Adams’ 1910 proposal (A Letter to American Teachers of History) to begin teaching history thermodynamics in America.
● Pitirim Sorokin’s 1928 “mechanistic school of social thermodynamics”, which he subdivides as follows:1. Social mechanics
Representatives: A.P. Barcelo, Spiru Haret, Alfred Lotka2. Social physics
Representatives: Henry Carey3. Social energetics (or social thermodynamics)
Representatives: Ernest Solvay, W. Bechtereff, Wilhelm Ostwald, T.N. Carver, and Leon Winiarski4. Mathematical sociology
Representatives: Vilfredo Pareto and F. Carli
|Korea University's three credit graduate course “Seminar on Social Thermodynamics”, a type of human thermodynamics education course, divided into two parts: firstly, general systems theory, a discussion of its basic outline, along with its drawbacks; and, second, the “theory of social thermodynamics and its applications”, supposedly on some variant of social thermodynamics, at the introductory level, and discussion of its applications, either theoretical or possibly in the area of applied human thermodynamics; the program, as indicative of its "two cultures approach", employs a "two-supervisors system": one is based on human or social science, the other is based on natural science or engineering, similar to the American university department Thims is looking to found. |
● Richard Hughes' 2008 political thermodynamics and government thermodynamics course, Texas Tech University, US;
● Korea University's 2011 social thermodynamics graduate school course;
(b) Human physics | similar to:
● Serge Galam's 1980s social atoms based sociophysics teaching program in France, French National Center for Scientific Research.
● Jurgen Mimkes’ 1992-present physical socio-economics department (and PhD students), University of Paderborn, Germany;● Joseph McCauley’s 2005 econophysics department (and PhD students), University of Houston;
● Curtis Blakely's 2010 call for the development of sociophysics, treating people as particles, for application in the field of penology.
(c) Human chemistry | similar to:
Mechanistic school of social thermodynamics
Russian-born American Harvard sociology department founder Pitirim Sorokin’s 1928 classification of the first main branch (of eleven) of modern sociology, that of the “mechanistic school of social thermodynamics”, all based on the thermodynamics of Rudolf Clausius, which curiously has completely disappeared from the American educational system? 
● Thomas Huxley’s 1871 call for the development of the field of social chemistry;
● Henry Adams’ 1885 definition of “social chemistry—the mutual attraction of equivalent human molecules—[as] a science yet to be created.”
● Albion Small's 1899 argument that ‘general sociology’ might be able to be defined in the future as ‘the science of human atoms and their behavior’.
● Frank Carlton's 1912 call for the inception of the sciences of social mechanics, social physics and social chemistry.
● Werner Stark's 1962 followup to Huxley's call for the development of the social chemistry;
● University of Bergen’s 2011 “Literature and Chemistry: Elective Affinities” symposium on literature chemistry centered on Goethe's 1809 Elective Affinities.
a department of study thus uniting the engineering, humanities, and physical science departments into one unified teaching framework, similar in structure to the Lewis school of thermodynamics, albeit inclusive of the humanities, at a leading American university. Online forums indicate, as of 2008, for example, that graduate students are looking to know where they can go to study sociophysics in America, but no department as such currently exists.  In engineering, James Ferri, head of the chemical and biomolecular engineering department of Lafayette College, Pennsylvania, is doing something similar, with his student produced video projects, e.g. “Thermodynamics of Life: Occupy Wall Street Edition” (2011), but their seems to be no involvement with the university finance, business, and economics departments, which creates an education disjunct. 
Thims currently is in talks, see: two cultures university department (discussion section), to found such a multi-disciplinary department; although as French physicist Serge Galam's reports, such an effort is not without decade's of resistance and opposition to the premise of a field in which a person is defined as an atom or a molecule, which comes from someone in France, the least religious country in the world.

Citations, conferences, and lectures
See main: Libb Thims (citations)Thims' work and theories, beginning in 2006, have been referenced, cited, and discussed in several journal articles, magazines, conferences, symposiums, and meetings. Thims has been invited to give lectures and or poster presentations at conferences and symposiums at MIT, Harvard Medical School, Moscow, Chicago, India, and Europe.
Since 2010, Thims has been giving invited yearly lectures, such as shown adjacent, on an introduction to human thermodynamics, to various university bioengineering thermodynamics classes around Chicago.

YouTube's Human Chemistry 101 channel was started in 2008 by Thims, scheduled as a semi-weekly educational video series on the science of "human chemistry", or the chemistry of human interactions. In 2009, Thims joined Twitter, which he posts to occasionally. In 2009-2010, Thims worked out some of the basic principles of a modern thermodynamics-based pair-matching dating site: ReactionMatch.com according to which people, as human molecules, are matched in reactions, using the thermodynamic database method, the same exact way that smaller atoms, chemicals, and molecules are matched. Thims has been in talks with the one of the heads of Match.com, and other science-based dating site launchers, and is currently working to connect our couple this pilot plant stage project up to a university department in order to conduct experimental research and theoretical human chemical thermodynamics. This latter project, however, is currently shelved or rather on the back-burner at the moment.

See main: Libb Thims (quotes)The following are quotes and or commentary on or about Thims and his work:
“Thims' brilliant book [Human Chemistry] symbolizes the beginning of a new era (epoch) in human history.”— Georgi Gladyshev (2006), Russian physical chemist “I want to say how much I enjoyed reading [Thims] splendid discussion of Gibbs free energy. It is wonderful to see someone who is not afraid to look at the phenomena of life in a unified way.”— John Avery (2006), Lebanese-born Danish physicist and theoretical chemist
“The chapters [Human Chemistry] are wonderfully written. I have a feeling it will be [Thims] who will get the public’s attention about the fundamental change in thinking in science.”— Jing Chen (2006), Chinese-born Canadian mathematician and economist “Thims’ edits are far and wide. Unless Physchem is an incredible polymath, I doubt he would be able to pick up on all the BS a Thims-type editor introduces. That’s not knocking Physchem, I don’t think there is anyone who could deal with the range.”– Keith Henson (2007), American electrical engineer and evolutionary psychologist“If we accept Thims’ logic of human thermodynamics as a viable explanatory framework, which it very well is, romantic bonding then becomes the subject matter of quantum electrodynamics (QED), an aspect of particle physics that traces human attachment and bonding to the interactions of photons and electrons. Thus, applying Thims’ theory to interpersonal and love relationships, it is unlikely that any one person has the ability to coerce or unilaterally secure another person’s affection. In a different sense, the force of attraction between a man and a woman is beyond their physical control, except, of course, by way of the energies they emit and exchange between them. Thims’ Human Thermodynamics thus makes substantial contribution to our understanding of the perplexing nature of romantic love, greatly supplementing prior research in this field.”— Satch Ejike (2008), African-born American lawyer and social scientist “I stumbled onto your website by accident but I have to confess this might be one of the most stunning undiscovered intellectual achievements of the 21st century. I have browsed through your wiki and I cannot express how tragic it must be to a man in your position—to be a pioneering thinker yet to be rejected by an uptight academic community with neither the depth nor will to understand your unique work, defending their own turf like dogs. I can only compare you to the many other pioneering heroes of science, Newton (IQ=215), Einstein (IQ=220), Tesla (IQ=195), men who like you blazed their own paths but were too victims of their own genius, only to be validated years after their death. Perhaps one day historians will look back and have a chuckle—that the pioneer of enthropology published by a vanity press in a book resembling a third rate romance.”— Steven Pierce (2009), Canadian mathematical physicist and computer scientist “One of the most interesting topics [human molecule] I have ever had the pleasure to read. Going through it a second time, and looking forward to the third. [The Human Molecule] covers the most fundamental change in human knowledge since Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species , by presenting a theory that we are fundamentally molecules, and that the question of life itself is a fundamentally flawed one. Especially important is the carefully laid out historical narrative of how Thims came to his theory of the human as a molecule. Whether you ultimately agree with this work or not, it represents a paradigm shift in viewing our place in the world.”— Jeff Tuhtan (2011), American civil engineer and ecological thermodynamicist “Libb Thims: the great oracle and developer of human thermodynamics—the philosophical revolution of the 21st century. A genius of outstanding stature and originator of many concepts in human chemistry. [His] breathtaking contribution to science needs to be rewarded. Let’s hope one day [he] can add a Nobel Prize to [his] impressive career.”— Mark Janes (2011), English chemical engineer, biotechnologist, and human free energy theorist 
|A 2012 YouTube thumbs up ranking of Thims as having the "highest IQ" ever, above that of Goethe (IQ=230), Einstein (IQ=220), and Newton (IQ=215), from the comments section of part four of the "IQ 200+ | Smartest person ever" video (rate: 1.5 thumbs-up votes / 336 views ∙ day), a countdown to the last universal genius, German polymath Johann Goethe, ranked, starting from the Cattell 1000, the 1894 listing of the thousand most eminent individuals of history, by a team of Stanford psychologists led by Catherine Cox (Early Mental Traits of 300 Geniuses, 1926) and Lewis Terman, the group that invented the IQ scale, with an IQ of 225, the highest of all modern genius IQs.|
“I must say, I started watching your videos over a year ago, and have re-watched many. And they still fascinate me. I’m only 17 and I’m seriously considering doing a degree in chemistry after watching your videos. The only downside is not many people I know can have a conversation about the things you’re talking about. You were right your videos are decades if not a century in front of its time.”— Ben (2011), comment on Human Chemistry 101 YouTube channel“The idea that individual humans are atom-like entities and there is a kind of chemistry between social atoms and molecules is very natural, but whether it is more than a metaphor remains uncertain. Anyway, human chemistry has been on the marketplace of ideas for quite a while [see: Goethe timeline, 1796]. The main reason why I abstain from referring to Libb Thims’ flamboyant venture other than as to a commendable review of literature is that he, apparently, uses the term chemistry too literally in the sense of molecular chemistry, while I am interested in pattern chemistry. I can only note that the very idea of human thermodynamics as a separate subject looks to me completely sound. Thus, the concept of metabolic cost is part of it. Obviously, human interaction is a component of global economy.”— Yuri Tarnopolsky, Introduction to Pattern Chemistry (2011) “[Human thermodynamics] is a branch of science that attempts to predict the behavior of people via chemical and thermodynamical equations. It is an interesting philosophy, a change of paradigm, perhaps even leaving having a broader explanation for human behavior than Darwanian evolution. Human thermodynamics can also be useful as a new framework for the origin of life. For instance, Libb Thims, proposed online that the idea of Darwin’s ‘dark pond’ which suddenly sprang to ‘life’, is not a very coherent one [defunct theory of life], and that it would be much more creditable and parsimonious to have as a rule that molecules bond and form ever more complex beings. Libb Thims also proposed a ‘human molecule’ where people are attracted to each other by chemical bonds [see: human chemical bond]. All this I believe to be a reasonable explanation: even if Darwin’s theory is still correct, they approach of thermodynamics and chemistry is a much more simple, and at the same time broader view. If the concept of biology is somehow redundant, then we must study it by means of chemistry and physics.”— David Bossens (2012), “Reflections: Criticisms of Science”

On this page you wrote about "Greatest thermodynamicists (according to Russian physical chemist Georgi Gladyshev)".
However in my article (first of all) I wrote about the mathematical fundament of classical thermodynamics, and also hierarchical thermodynamics. There were many works of greatest scientists. I said only about of some of them! Some of them were greatest mathematicians primarily! I wrote also that you created your “Human thermodynamics”. Please look at the full text of my article and would you please correct your text.
