|A few example of the “equation overlay method”, namely the placement of scientific notation, symbols, equations, chemical formulas, etc., above a given human phenomenon, in aims to visually capture the science of underlying the phenomena. Left: a circa 2004 draft cover for Libb Thims’ Human Thermodynamics, Volume One manuscript. Center: the 2008 Time article "Why We Love?"  Right: A chemical symbol overlay depiction of an strong A≡B type human chemical bond actuating between two people (human molecules) newly in love during war times.|
Once the overlay is made, the problem will tend to be solved using the Feynman problem solving algorithm, or some variation of this.
The adjacent overlay, from the 2008 Time magazine article “Why We Love?”, by written by Jeffrey Kluger with illustrations by Serge Bloch, depicts a scene from the 1939 epic-film Gone With the Wind, the highest adjusted-grossing film of all-time (having sold more tickets than any other film in US history), between Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) and Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh), with five equation-concept overlay, in descending order: 
● A top equation (name: maybe from electromagnetics?)
● Electromagnetic (or magnetic) field lines, over the head of Butler: indicative of some type of orbital theory?
● An atom (or atomic theory) symbol: possibly aiming to depict a type of atomic-mental bond?
● A chemical formula (2D formula for testosterone: the principle male sex hormone) overlaid on Butler
● A bottom equation (name: some type of kinetic energy formula?)
The article really doesn't expand much beyond this, but simply goes on to quote views from researchers such as Helen Fisher, David Buss, and Arthur Aron.
|Mark Janes, the author of this overlay, wants to understand topics such as depression, free will, human occupation, good and evil, etc., in terms of chemistry and thermodynamics (add caption).|
The "amount" of equation overlay sometimes tends to be indicative of the "greenness" of the hmol-theorist; one example, of this type, is the 2006 carbon entromorphology theory of English biologist Mark Janes, as shown below.  Janes' methodology is his belief that he is an amplified version of carbon atom and that atomic logic, and atomic orbital theory, must explain his existence; also that, being a type of atomic logic, the Gibbs equation, ΔG = ΔH – TΔS, of chemical thermodynamics, must explain topics such as free will, reaction paths, good and evil, and depression:
