Libb Thims (personal notes)

Person note
A rendition of Thims jotting down mental notes.
In notes, Libb Thims (personal notes) refers to personal notes jotted by American electrochemical engineer Libb Thims on scratch paper, in book margins, in document files, arisen mental notes, on napkins, of lately some directly via mind-to-wiki storage conversion, etc., some of which prior to Hmolpedia being listed on IoHT webpages, others of late being listed below, similar to how Newton wrote down Aristotle's famous quote "Plato is my friend but truth my greater friend" in his personal notes (or book margins), prior to setting Aristotle to the side (Ѻ) and embarking after truth.

“The questions real geniuses solve aren’t found in intelligence tests; rather they arise in the mind of the genius, as baffling or elusive perplexities the mind strongly desires solution to.”
— Libb Thims (2018), arisen in mind while perusing Jacob Leachman’s four-year-old thermodynamics exam questions; solution to the seeming problem why elite geniuses such as Richard Feynman and Henri Poincare scored in sub genius level on IQ tests, but became top 1000 geniuses as adults or in retrospect, 12:50PM CST Feb 22

“The fact that we still categorized years in BC/AD dating system, indicates that we are still a backwards people.”
— Libb Thims (2018), mental note; arisen will editing the Murray 4000 page, 7:40PM CST Jan 15

Physics, chemistry, and thermodynamics is the language of the atheist. When, accordingly, the humanities are explained in the language of physics, chemistry, and thermodynamics, an implicit atheistic basis is presumed, whereas an overt explicit atheism is the ideal.”

“It amazes the mind how one can go from ruminating on the reduction of all to the Clausius inequality, at one point in the day, to Tweeting (Ѻ) about Noah’s flood, at a latter point? The incredulity of humanity, give or take a Da Vinci or two, is stupefying.”
— Libb Thims (2017), arisen mental sigh, 11:40AM CST May 15

“It still is amazing, that one cannot find one intelligent person, existive or non-extant, throughout the last 114-years (Gibbs dereacted in 1903), the nearest thing to universal genius, whose mind was active in this period, being Neumann, who after tasting human free energy theory, ended up begging a priest for Pascal’s wager in his last days; then we have the oft-talked-about Feynman, the closet atheist, who but polished what Dirac did prior to him; the last Faustian mind to have been synthesized being Weininger, who also dereacted in 1903, after picking where Goethe left off, but then blowing his heart out in Beethoven’s last room. In modern times, we have the so-called best and the brightest, milling out of the paper factories, such as Wisner-Gross, the last triple major MIT valedictorian, who is able to get but babble out of his mouth, when it comes to the deeper questions, such as the relation between entropy, intelligence, and sexual relationships, or the IQ:200+ cited prodigy Luis Arroyo, who at age 20 could but produce his “A Thermal Model of the Economy”, which is but a stepping stone away from what the age 20 IQ:225+ cited prodigy William Sidis produced via thermodynamics. We might find a few semi-discerning existive minds, here and there, such as Weinberg or Hawking, who are able to probe deep in to nature and speak semi-cogently about conflicting matters, such as physics and religion, but more often than not the deeper hooks fall into babble as well, such as Weinberg’s pointless universe conjecture indecisiveness, or Hawking’s slow ability to ability to come out as atheist. One is also agape at the fact that in the year 2017 one can go a publicly made and ranked list of 1,258 geniuses, such as found in Ranker.com’s list of ‘Greatest Minds of All Time’, with 1M views, 400k votes, and 32k voters, and NOT find the name Gibbs, despite the fact that Einstein pointedly stated nearly a century ago that Gibbs is the ‘greatest mind in American history’. The befuddlement is obdurate. The Rossini debate is a macroscope testament to 21st century ignorance par excellence.”
— Libb Thims (2017), ruminating idea (related to Thims’ pre-2005 twin desire), possibly arisen while editing Goethe and mathematics, 7:41AM CST May 14

“I have to spend a certain number of hours per day greasing the wheels, sparking the kindle, and pushing on the kinetics of collision theory aspect of the situation, in order to get the mechanism operation.”
— Libb Thims (2017), mental note on wake-up designed “gears” diagram of the MailCubes-powered Nightingale Chair model, May 9

Goethe’s Elective Affinities is a modern remake of the Empedoclean idea that friends mix like water and wine, whereas enemies separate like oil and water, told such that the main couple, the Edward-Charlotte married pair (second marriage, dwindling passion) is compared to gypsum (aka calcium carbonate), i.e. Ca=CO3, where Edward is calcium, Charlotte is CO3, and the “=” is their deteriorating marriage bond. They decide, owing to "changing" (Heraclitus, c.475BC) circumstances, to invite, firstly, the Captain, Edward’s old friend from youth, and then, secondly, Ottilie, Charlotte’s deceased best friend’s daughter, whom she adopted, to come to stay with them, at their estate. The Captain, when he arrives, is compared with sulphuric acid (H2SO4), who when put in contact with the gypsum, triggers a reaction, wherein Edward (Ca) breaks with Charlotte (CO3) and goes off doing things with his old friend the Captain (H2SO4), therein re-forming the Edward=Captain (CaSO4) friendship of youth, thereby displacing Charlotte (CO2) as a sort of “single” gas molecule, left to herself. All this occurs by chapter four.”

“Not only am I an atheist (deny the existence of god), but I am also an asoulist (deny the existence of the soul), an achristist (deny the existence of Jesus Christ), an aspiritist (deny the existence of spirit), an amortalist (deny the existence of afterlife), an abioist (deny the existence of life), but – to clarify – NOT an amoralist (deny the existence of “morals” [or justice]). I am a moralist, one who believes that the “moral symbols” of nature are found in the symbols, equations, rules, and laws of physical chemist, as Goethe prophesized two centuries ago, and NOT a nihilist (believes that existence is meaningless, purposeless, pointless, and valueless), these can all be explained via free energy inflection point (e.g. Gates model).”
— Libb Thims (2017), mental note; arisen while penning the Margaret of Navarre article and seeing the 25 usages of “soul” (Ѻ) in Lives of Illustrious Women of All Ages (1860), 12:21 PM CST Apr 14

“In a Clausiusian universe, the ‘final cause’ conjecture, in the old Aristotelian universe, has been usurped by the new ‘final state’ (or end state) model.”
— Libb Thims (2017), mental note arisen while watching the suggested hyperlink options in making the links to the new “path-dependent” article (with thoughts of Lawrence Henderson and his view that the new system change of state model obviates the older cause and effect model; a general statement of teleology upgrade terminology (or purpose terminology upgrade), 12:32 PM CST, Mar 14

“The irony of Planck, one of the founders of thermodynamics, in 1937, at the age of 79, arguing for a compatibility between religion, which he says ‘wants one to act’, the foundation of which being based on the belief that heat is a god [see: supreme god timeline], the action principle of which being the soul, and science, which he says ‘wants one to learn’, the foundation of which being based on the belief that heat is the quantitative product the exact differential of entropy and the absolute temperature of the body, releasing or absorbing the heat, the so-called moral action principle of which, saleable down to the hydrogen atom, being yet indeterminate, is watershed moment in history.”
— Libb Thims (2017), wake-up reflection on reading Planck’s 1937 “Religion and Natural Science” lecture, 11:43AM CST, Mar 7

“On the parable of the magnifying glass: if your light is simultaneously spread over multiple areas, e.g. Smart Atheism: for Kids, Hmolpedia, and MailCubes, it is hard to get any one to ignite, whereas if the light of the magnifying glass is focused on one spot, the dry leaf can be easily ignited.”
— Libb Thims (2017), mental note on disbandment of 10-month existive two-person MailCube complex; arisen while running 3-mi in park, 1:45PM CST Feb 5

— Libb Thims (2017), “arisen thought” while ruminating on Hmolpedia home page, with thoughts on the implicit extreme atheism nature of the site’s content; conceived amid making and posting the Thomas Paine “age of ignorance” quote (Ѻ) image, 9:41AM CST Feb 22

God’s getting in the way.”

Dahmer’s Dostoevsky-stylized ‘why can’t I make up my own rules?’ ideology violates Pope’s ‘does gravity cease when I go by?’ posit.”
— Libb Thims (2016), wake-up mental note, 9:14AM CST, Nov 22

Thermal energy is a misnomer per reason that ‘energy’, per definition, is a conjugate variable, the product of an intensive and extensive quantity, and heat is only an intensive quantity.”

— Libb Thims (2016), reflective mental note arisen in mind, at three beer level, while sitting in chair, amid the interlude of Dr. Zhivago, while ruminating on the Incident Report #4 on house guest Angela, 9:44AM CST Sep 26

“Religion is simply a belief system that binds two or more people. The smart are always asking questions. This creates to new science. New science leads to new beliefs. New beliefs, in turn, lead to new religion. So the process repeats, eternally.”
— Libb Thims (2016), mental note while ruminating on the Jim Jefferies front matter quote, on how ‘smarts are always asking questions’, 3:17PM CST Sep 14

“If one hears a story of the neighborhood ruffian, out with some of the local kids, who says: look, I’ll bet you I can kill that bird with this stone, and thereafter he goes ahead and does it, most would likely say that it was a ‘wrongact. If, however, one hears the story of a man, out with his family, on a broken boat, having been lost at sea for some time, who says: look, I’ll bet I can ‘kill those two birds with one stone’, and thereafter successfully does so, most would see the man as some sort of hero, and deem the actright’. The two parallel examples, accordingly, point to the view that right and wrong are system or context based delineations or demarcations.”
— Libb Thims (2016), “mental note” arisen, the day previous, when he envisaged that he could ‘kill two birds with one stone’ if he used the proceeds from MailCubes.com, if it gets to a billion dollar evaluation, to fund a modern version of the Nightingale Chair of Social Physics, similar to the way the Rockefeller Foundation funded, for a short time (before dualism objections (Ѻ) brought it to a halt), the Princeton Social Physics Project, Apr 25.

“If the top doesn’t stop spinning that means you’re still dreaming.”
— Libb Thims (2016), “mental note”, prompted into inception per seeing foreverspin (Ѻ) advert + thoughts on Inception (2010) film + in the sense of one who “keeps the dreams of youth alive”, 10:22CST Apr 21

— Libb Thims (2016), mental note arisen, while going to the bathroom (#1), amid start of workout, following finishing the ChE + H coupling article, 2:40PM CST Apr 16

God was disabused explicitly from physics by Laplace (1802), implicitly from moral science by Goethe (1809), explicitly from chemistry by Wislicenus (1885), openly and privately from relativity and particle physics by Dirac (1927), and explicitly from thermodynamics and evolution by Blum (1934), in the wake of which the natural and exact sciences became ‘uncontaminated by spiritual values’, as Herrick (1930) put things, and science therein became atheism implicit.”
— Libb Thims (2016), re-occurring mental synopsis note; a truncation of the year god was disabused from science article, 10:34 AM CST Apr 14

“Need to get (a) $5 million to get North Shore beach mansion, so to throw raging ‘mansion beach party’, and (b) need to get personal driver, like the playboy in Abbott & Costello’s Buck Privates had and like Christian Gray had in 50 Shades of Gray, to remedy the on-going situation, e.g. like last night (Ѻ) when I got stopped outside the mansion party, at 11:30PM, by two police cars, who though I was a mansion robber, and all the cops swarming around me, around Touhy, when I took those two hot Persian girls to the after party at 3AM at the Mark II lounge, where Armando’s birthday party was chilling.”

“We time seconds based on the relativistic oscillation of the cesium atom, yet date years on a monotheistic rendition of the Osiris cycle.”
— Libb Thims (2016), laughable note, 9:01PM CST Apr 5

“While some may cautiously point out that materialism-based-atheism is a slippery slope, bottoming out, many times, in dark regions like Stalin’s bread lines, Hitler’s gas chambers, or Dahmer’s acid vats, others, more perceptive, are keen to realize that the need to explain the passions, pure and applied, reaching, in some cases, more illuminated summits such as Balzac’s feelings and affinities dialogues, the Goethe-Schiller passions like playing cards dialogue, or the Shelley marriage in the Church of Elective Affinities, is a more powerful movement.”
— Libb Thims (2016), “mental note”, arisen while marinating in the new Humpty Dumpty homepage image + mental back notes on the oft-parroted atheism atrocities fallacy (e.g. as employed in the Rossini debate) 12:29PM CST Apr 4

“It’s not the ‘in god we trust’ motto [1956] that is the problem with US currency, it is the series year dating system. The former is but icing on a cake that is made with a faulty recipe. The latter is so defunct that the cake has become rotten, and the stench only increases with each passing year.”
— Libb Thims (2016), “mental note”, arisen while penning the Marcus Varro article and his AUC dating system; following rumination, while working on the atheism types by denial and belief, on the dating system Epicurus would have used, 6:32AM CST Apr 4

“Certainly a deer jumping over a fence or thief climbing over a fence is different than say a leaf blowing over a fence or a paper airplane flying over the fence, but, nevertheless, all four phenomena are the result of a force moving an object through a distance, and thereby mediating work therein. In this view, when ‘physics has entered’ the scene, as Sherrington would say, all metaphysical, religio-mythological, and or supernatural superlatives, such as Herrick’s 1930 “spiritual value” talk [see: spiritual terminology reform], are barred from the discussion, in the same way that Dirac barred Einstein’s god talk from the 1927 Solvay conference, on fundamental quantum mechanics, as being inadmissible from the point of view of modern science.”
— Libb Thims (2016), mental note made while reading the Herrick Humpty Dumpty analogy, with reflection on test saying of this at BPE 2016, 11:27AM CST Apr 2

— Libb Thims (2016), “mental note”, on visually comparing (Ѻ) the Empedocles model (450BC) with the Cowper model (1782) with the Yakovenko model (2000); in particular the conceptual confusion in the latter’s “money = energy” (with temperature) model, 12:17PM CST Apr 1

“Just as it is no longer permissible to use “god talk” in fundamental physics discussions, as Dirac vehemently objected to, amid the 1927 Solvay conference (Ѻ), in respect to Einstein and his “god’s dice” talk, thrown about in his quantum mechanics debates, so too is it no longer permissible to use “spirit talk” and or “soul talk”, and the like, in fundamental sociological discussions.”
— Libb Thims (2016), “mental note”, a synthesis of summary thoughts on use of “spirit talk” by Howard W. Odum (1929), e.g. “scientific spirit”, Howard T. Odum (1976), e.g. “human spirit”, and soul talk and spirit talk by Inderjit Singh (Ѻ) in his “Essay on Mankind” (2016), 9:14AM CST Mar 31

Odum’s An Introduction to Social Research (1929), with reflection on the younger’s use of “spirit” [human spirit] (Ѻ) amid a thermodynamics-attempting social theory, similarly the elder's use of spirit [scientific spirit (pg. vi)] and latter (2007) attempt at suppositioning an energy-based religion, i.e. “emergy morality” system; compare Yuri Tarnopolsky’s 1993 Soviet orthodoxy quasi-religion statement, 1:02PM CST Mar 30

“While some people think we have come out of the dark ages, I would intuit that we are still residing in Plato’s cave.”
— Libb Thims (2016), “mental note reflection”, upon looking at the new revision #1851 of the Hmolpedia main page, after receiving the full 10-volume print set, and marinating in the jump from the Goethe-Schiller dialogue (1799) to the Beg view (1987) to the visual of the print set, with the de Donder view (1936) of the relation between affinity and free energy shown on the cover, repeated ten times, 3:37PM CST Mar 28

“There’s too much zeal and not enough wheel.”
— Libb Thims (2016), “wake-up mental note”, commentary on proliferation of 21st century "seven-layer citation method" (in contrast to early 17th century conjecture based directly on experiment), e.g. empty econophysics, incongruous information-based thermodynamics, e.g. Wayne Angel’s bit-based enthalpy, and the BPE 2016 consortium varied topics in general, in respect to Otto Guericke’s “no truth without experimentbelief system motto, from his preface, and reasoning for undertaking his vacuum experiments (which he never intended to publish); day-after reflection and rumination while reading the emptiness of Howard T. Odum (1976) as compared to the rootedness of Howard W. Odum (1929); in the seeming synopsis sense that 95 of modern publications physics-based humanities publications, e.g. "bird in vacuum econophysics", are all zeal with no experimentally-based mechanistically-conceptually understood roots, the way Guericke went about things, i.e. in the Galileo-Kircher view of things, in his experimental investigations, as a hobby alongside his day job as mayor of Magdeburg, 7:52AM CST Mar 26

“It’s a fundamental law of physico-chemistry – deriving from collision theory – that one cannot get to the new bonds until the old bonds are broken. It is the reason why hot water freezes faster than cold water.”

“One of the noticeably-discernible commonalities in transgressing into the coming-out-of darkage Thimsian ‘atoms + thermodynamics’ formulaic theory of every ‘thing’, as compared to the going-into darkage Lucretian ‘atoms + chance’ formulaic theory of every ‘thing’, is the parallelism via which the same theory acceptance resistance difficulties are prevalent, such as Marcus Varro’s 50BC ‘the poets, through the conjunction of fire and moisture [see: Darwin’s warm ponddefunct theory of life], are indicating that the vis, ‘force’, which they have is that of Venus [Aphrodite]. Those born of vis [vis viva; vitalism] have what is called vita, ‘life’, and that is what is meant by Lucilius [c.120BC] when he says: life is force [see: Tesla] you see: to do everything force doth compel us’,’ or Lucretius’ 55AD ‘think of all the endless fantasies your priests devise, that can subvert all reasoned thought and turn your life to terror and confusion’ [see: new atheismdefensive atheism (Ѻ) / extreme atheism], which would seem to point towards some type of historical big history timescale social orbital trajectory theory of belief bond change actuation, akin to five-turn interpersonal make-up to break-up social orbital loop decoupling phenomena, which actuates in some relationship breakup dynamics, or something to this effect.”

You could be a student of the best chemical thermodynamics professor, namely: Gilbert Lewis, of the 20th century, and then go on to write a full and very successful textbook on Chemical Thermodynamics, and only after this, you might, per small chance, have balls enough, after winning a prestigious prize, e.g. the Priestly Medal, at the age of 72, to spend a few minutes at the end of your acceptance speech, talking about how chemical thermodynamics applies in the REAL world, e.g. to freedom and security, only to have underlying conjectures and implications of your ending speech be debated about 30-years later, after you have already passed, in some random Chemical Education journal, after a planes are flown into skyscrapers in the name of god, on the merits of your theory, amid atheists chemists and theist chemists, only to have your idea run amuck in stalemate, owing to 5,000-years of ingrained mythological beliefs, on both sides of the debate fence.”

“The amount of thoroughgoing learned imbecility-ingrained ignorance prevalent going into the early 21st century, is captured well in the frequent boasts that so-and-so Fields Medal winner, e.g. Bhargava (Ѻ), Tao, etc., towers above Goethe in intellect, is epitomized by the commonly known rule, among intellectual climbers, that humanities degrees are for those who can’t handle mathematics, that mathematics is for those who can’t handle physics, that physics if for those who can’t handle engineering, that the weak engineering degrees are for those who can’t handle chemical engineering, that those who drop out of chemical engineering are those that can’t handle chemical engineering thermodynamics, the infamous spine-chilling (Ѻ) ‘weeder course’ of this exquisitely dense subject, that chemical engineering, over the last century, has consistently been at or near the top of highest paying degrees, for this intellectual hierarchy reason alone, and that applied chemical thermodynamics in the humanities is the tending to be retirement age game plaything of those lofty intellects that can career-wise sail over all of this, e.g. Rossini, Bridgman, Schrodinger, etc., and or a large percentage of newly-emerging IQ:200-range (Ѻ) cited child prodigies, e.g. Hirata, Neumann, Arroyo, etc., that Gibbs is the gate keeper of this plaything, the underpinnings of which were mused about by Goethe, in his Elective Affinities (1809), and prior to him Empedocles (450BC), wherein the former, building on the latter, ‘brooded over the juridical procedures of god’ (Ѻ), prior to the raising of the gate by Helmholtz (1882), the last of the last universal geniuses, who proved affinity to be gauged by the free energy of Gibbs.”

“The present overarching morality system of the world, give or take 10-20 percent of the global population (who have, predominately, a Yellow River based belief system), is based on the seeming ancient perception that the sun (Ra) comes alive each morning, travels an arch through the sky, over a stationary earth (Geb), thereafter dying at nightfall, repeating this in a daily cycle, progressively growing stronger and weaker, in light and power, in a yearly cycle, decisively marked by the late Jun melting of the snow in the Ethiopian mountains, thereby causing the Nile River to flood (aka Nun or Noah’s flood), for 150-days, Jul to Nov, marked by the Jun 25 helical rising of Sirius (dog star)—the brightest start in the sky, culminating with the Dec 22-25 perceptual sun standstill, i.e. the seeming ultimate yearly “death” of the sun, at the location of the southern crux (cross) star formation; then conceptually seen to be reborn, on Jun 25, when the three king stars (three kings) align with Sirius to point out the birth location of the new young sun; all of which became anthropomorphized into the morality-based story of how Osiris (aka Jesus) was crucified (corn-like body shucked apart) at the time of the Corona Borealis (thorn crown) star formation, later being resurrected (or reincarnated) by his wife-sister cohort Stella Maris (aka Virgin Mary), or “star of the sea”, to become the judge of the living and the dead in the afterlife, via the method of the weighing of the soul, the number of sins, or acts of wrong doing, i.e. the measure of the weight soul, being 42 (aka negative confessions), measured against the feather of truth, based on the number of nodes (capitals), and associated nodal gods (later to reside in the hall of judgment in the afterlife), existing in upper and lower Egypt at the time of the formation of the 1st dynasty state religion in 3100BC, the gist of which is known to the modern world in the form of resurrection-based Abrahamic faiths (53% of world beliefs) and the reincarnation-based Brahmaic faiths (19% of world beliefs), i.e. Ra-centric theologies (aka Anunian theology) or Ra (phoenix) born of Nun (pyramid) following (Nile) flood origin of the universe based belief and morality systems.”

“A person is not governed by God, but by their passions. The passions, in turn, as Goethe pointed out, are governed by the elective affinities. The affinities, in turn, as Helmholtz proved, are measured by the free energies.

Religion — as noted by Marquis de Sade (1797), Novalis (1798), Marx (1843), and Dirac (1927) — is but an opiate or opium for the mind; and like all drugs, it can be replaced, upgraded, or in some cases treated, with a better or less symptomatic one.”

“I much prefer reading, and writing [spontaneously] in the margins of books, as I did in the old days, when needed, without so-called ‘conscious’ awareness that what I may be writing in those margins will be read and cited by others, in the distant future, similar to the way I presently site Newton’s age 19 handwritten notebook quote about how Aristotle commented, somewhere, that while Plato may be his friend, ‘truth is his greater friend’, or about how Darwin wrote ‘never use the words higher or lower’, in the margin of his copy of Robert ChambersVestiges of the Natural History of Creation (1844), or how Fermat wrote his so-called ‘last theorem’, which states that a^n + b^n = c^n \,, where x, y, and z are non-zero integers, has no solution with n greater than 2, in the margins of his copy of Diophantus’ Arithmetica (c.275).

Surfing the Kelvin-Helmholtz waves
A “Surfing the Kelvin-Helmholtz waves” cartoon, John C. Holden. (Ѻ)

“My IQ is somewhere between Dr. Seuss, who in 1931 claimed an IQ of H2SO4, and Dr. Faustus, who in 1514 sold his soul to the devil for truth, knowledge, and power; the embodiment of the latter found in the mind of Goethe, who in 1809 professed that he and his wife were like CaCO3 (limestone), who when put into contact with H2SO4 (Captain) have no “choice” but to debond, and who in 1926 [Cox] became the first ever person ranked with an IQ of 225.”
