These, three draft manuscripts: Human Thermodynamics, Volumes 1-3, in total, made it up to about the 1000-page level, two hand glue bound printings, one mailed out in sealed envelope to own address, per poor man’s copyright purposes; the other read and reviewed with handwritten commentary by one person, and in these, in 2002, Thims human molecular formula was calculated (published on line in 2005). At this point, it became apparent that the cart was way ahead of the horse, i.e. Thims was jumping to the thermodynamics of human chemical reactions, without providing the preliminaries publications, to the new student, that: (a) a human is type of molecule, (b) an introduction to the history of human chemical reaction theory, and (c) that the study of the reactions and behaviors of human molecules is the science of human chemistry; each of these three points, being nothing but common sense, in the back of Thims mind, at this point, not seemingly in need of overt discussion, but rather something of the character of assumed implicit basic knowledge.

The subject, in total, was, at this point, ballooning way past the 1000+ page level, and in need of being broken up.
A 100-copies printed, hand coil bound, distributed to associates for review, and returned for feedback digestion.

This draft manuscript resulted out of an attempt to explain to a friend, in very lay terms, whose mother and grandmother had recently been murdered, by the mother's boyfriend, in attempts at an insurance scam, what happens to a person when they die, as thermodynamics sees things.

This so-called semi-named subject of "cessation thermodynamics", however, at this point stalled out, at this point; thought, to note, much was learned during this process.
The JHT was launched as it became apparent that a publishing venue was needed for works and individuals beginning to be connected with the Institute of Human Thermodynamics, associated website, and as a place to publish the decisive (left-unfinished) article “On the Nature of the Human Chemical Bond” (Ѻ) , the latter being an article that, in part, acted to push into existence the writing of the two-volume textbook Human Chemistry, being that the article, being written on a webpage, was growing too large to fit on one single webpage. In circa Feb 2006, via footnote 2.5 of Belgian chemist Ilya Prigogine's 1984 book Order Out of Chaos, Thims discovered Goethe and his chapter four, after which, owing to something akin to a hypnotic moral imperative, it became apparent that an attempt, however incorrigible the result, at a textbook on the science of reactions between people, the way Goethe envisioned things, i.e. the science of human chemistry, be penned, out of pure respect due—every other possible human endeavor being but trivial in nature (see also: textbook origin). The seeming need for this book arose into mind during a circa Dec 2007 dinner with Russian physical chemist Georgi Gladyshev and a female Russian-American anti-aging theory physician associate of his, during which Thims was attempting to explain to the physician the gist of the book, in lay terms, by pointing to chapters two (on human molecules) and five (on molecular evolution), after which the vision emerged that a simplified, equation-free, booklet was needed, for the lay reader, according to which, the 120-page booklet The Human Molecule resulted, being basically a combination of chapters two and five of Human Chemistry, expanded, in some sense, to give a more detailed history of the human molecule concept, e.g. adding in the newly found views of Henry Adams, among others. On 24 Dec 2007, Thims launched Hmolpedia (see: progress report), via the Wetpaint wikis, by writing with three text articles: Sadi Carnot, human thermodynamics, and human chemistry, following extreme resistance and prejudice at Wikipedia to getting an article on “human thermodynamics” started, in the face of the fact that there were entire books written on this subject, e.g. Mehdi Bazargan (Human Thermodynamics, 1956), and before the end of the year, had written about two-dozen articles in total, and had convinced Georgi Gladyshev to become the first member of the site. A second attempt at "simplified" cessation thermodynamics (2004), or the thermodynamics of death, was done in the form of a Human Chemistry 101 YouTube video; issues with this presentation, however, became apparent, however, when Thims inserted the verbal disclaimer, into the video, something along the lines of the following statement:

“In this video, we are going to discuss the thermodynamics of death; although, technically, to note, one cannot die, because one is not alive, i.e. a human is a molecule, and, technically, molecules to not live, nor die.”

The video, in short, which aired, became paradoxical or correctly an illogical digression.
This was drafted, per a combination of cover visualization appeal and the growing issues with atheist science authors purporting advocation of the so-called purposeless universe hypothesis, according to which, the universe is godless, which is correct, and that everything is but the result of accidental, blind, random, purposeless, billiard ball model like chance, among other varieties of similar assertion.

This impulse drafting manuscript, however, stalled out owing to a combination of (a) the amount of work and material was beginning to appear and go into the intro religio-mythology chapters, i.e. to introduce the readers why all modern religions are in fact mythology (see: religio-mythology transcription and syncretism), and (b) some type of terminology reform conflict that was beginning to be seen, akin to a mixture of that seen in chemical teleology publication issues and deanthropomorphization aspects of thermodynamic potential descriptions of human senses of sometimes “seeming to divine a purpose”, as Einstein would say.
Following the discovery of Hjalmar Boyesen’s 1885 “illustrated” Elective Affinities, his entire book, inclusive of the original 1854 James Froude English translation, was embedded, with illustration, into Hmolpedia, each chapter as an individual wiki page (see: EA|IAD: main), with some 17+ associated project pages, with some of the chapters decoded, below each chapter.

This project, still aiming to be made into a published print book set, when decoding is completed, is in limbo, being that (a) a human chemical thermodynamics textbook needs yet to be written and (b) the amount of scholarly work done on decoding is immense (e.g. Thims personal Goethe library is some 30+ books deep, presently).
This, presently, is the long-sought magnum opus, Thims envisioned, as a chemical engineering student, in circa 1995, while sitting in his chemical engineering thermodynamics lecture class; initiation has commenced, but one presently conflated by obstacles. This is only in the cover-appealing initiated stage, with the vision that a 100 or so page booklet would be interesting to see in print to elaborate on the all the idiocy prevalent amid the so-called “thermodynamics not applicable” to humans mindsets of many modern thinkers. Tentative booklet on the six big extreme atheists of history, in concordance with the Atheism Reviews channel.Image representation of the Feuerbach prophecy (1850) (Ѻ)(Ѻ); see online draft: Morality Squared. In the preface to the 2016 10-volume print set of Hmolpedia, Thims stated that the following are scheduled to be soon published:

● Elective Affinities: Illustrated, Annotated, and Decoded
| 280-pgs
● Morality Squared: Religion Dissolved in Nitric Acid | 70-pgs
● Shannon Thermodynamics: Science’s Greatest Sokal Affair | 120-pgs
● 500 Greatest Geniuses: Ranked by IQ | 250-pgs
On 26 Jun 2016, an 8-page paper draft was started to answer some of the atheism-questioning inquiries of a god-believing 10-year old girl; some of which was outlined in the Children’s Atheism Bible (2015) draft page and the Zerotheism for Kids (2015) lecture. The 29 Jun 2016 draft cover for the 39-page pdf of Smart Atheism: for Kids. [10]The 17 Sep 2016 cover; by Jan 2017, project stalled out at 3-volumes (c.90-pgs per volume).
