Power center

In hmolscience, power center, in the sense of the "knowledge is power" motto of Francis Bacon, refers to intellectual anchor points (e.g. the collected works set of Aristotle) from which intellectual outgrowths sprout, akin to the spread and growth of the strawberry plant, wherein each growth bundle connects to new growth bundles via shoots and sprouts.

Hmolscience power center genealogy
The following—launched on 26 Nov 2013, following the need to visually trace the connection between the 9-volume collected work set of Vilfredo Pareto and the 5-volume collected work set of Paul Samuelson (along with the web of links and nodes amid the other collected work sets of the big hmolscience thinkers: Goethe (150-volumes), Friedrich Nietzsche (5,000-page collected work set), Freud (23-volumes), Thims (10-volumes), etc.)—is a work-in-progress hmolscience “power center” genealogy map showing the links and nodes, transmission of ideas, among the big multi-volume thinkers in the hmolsciences:

Nun cosmology (new) 2
Origin of the Anunian theologies: Ab-Ra-ham-ic (53%) and B-Ra-hma-ic (19%) faiths; numbers shown being percent adherence in the modern era. Following the start of the Egyptian first dynasty (3100BC), a syncretism or synthesis of the local mythologies of the 42 pre-dynastic nomes (5000-3100BC), each with a different local god head, were worked together into a national creation myth based theology, changing theoretical form and development over time, in four different power centers: Heliopolis (3100BC), Memphis (2800BC), Hermopolis (2400BC), and Thebes (2040BC); the apex of which culminated in the building of the pyramids, supervised by Egyptian polymath Imhotep, the belief system cosmology teachings of which were inscribed into first the pyramid texts (2400-2300BC) (Ѻ) and then into coffin texts (2181-2055BC) (Ѻ).


1550 BC - 395 AD
(3192-1247 BN)
Egyptian Book of the Dead The earlier pyramid texts (2400-2300BC) and coffin texts (2181-2055BC) were condensed into the Egyptian Book of the Dead (1550-50BC) (Ѻ); the general origin, for over 75 percent of the modern world (Yellow River based religions aside), of the theory of life and death, via Nun-to-Noah conversion (in the Abrahamic faiths) and Nun-to-MaNu conversion (in the Brahmaic faiths).

The Khnum portions of which, whose influence of power came in the years 332BC-395AD, during the Greek and Roman periods, centered at Elephantine Island, resulted in the “clay creation myth” of humans, which became rewritten into the creation of Adam (clay in Hebrew) and Eve, as believed in the Ab-ra-ham-ic theologies (Christianity, Islam, etc.), a belief that currently dominates the mindsets of over 50 percent of the modern world (see: religion). Further reading: Nun cosmology.

In 322BC (1964 BN), Aristotle, at the time of his death (reaction end), had amassed all the world's knowledge into a large 2,512-page collected works set, uniting atomic theory, Greek philosophy, and Egyptian theology into a semi-modern earth-centric (Geb-centric), i.e. geo-centric cosmology, physical model of the universe (see: Aristotle citation ranking), which remained the dominate paradigm until the Copernicus-Galileo sun-centric (helio-centric) model (1642) acceptably supplanted the former.

Lausanne schoolThe so-called Lausanne school was, in some sense, anchored around Vilfredo Pareto and Leon Winiarski:

PrincipiaIn 1727 (84 ME), English physicist Isaac Newton, at the time of his death (reaction end), had amassed all the world's knowledge into a large collected works set, estimates of which, still not yet finalized (Ѻ), indicate 40-volumes±, including: 25-volume set of correspondence, 8-volume plus set of mathematical papers, 3-volume plus set of optics, one volume plus on Philosophical Questions, and untold volumes on alchemical pursuits and religious ventures; the apex of which being his Principia (1686) and Optics (1718), the latter of which, via Query 31, launched the chemical revolution.

The link from Aristotle to Newton seems to be via the former’s investigations into the nature abhors a vacuum query, which led him into a proto-version of the first law of motion (see: laws of motion), which the latter built on.

The Mind and Society (Pareto)In 1897, French-born Italian mathematical engineer and physical socioeconomist Vilfredo Pareto had begun to outline a research program that would base the science of political economy on the physical chemical sciences: mechanics, chemistry, and thermodynamics (see: variables table), via, e.g., D’Alembert’s principle, a formulaic precursor to the first law (Ѻ), defining humans as molecules, in possession of various degrees of agitation; he would go on to pen out nine-volumes: a two-volume Course on Political Economy (1986-87), Socialist Systems (1901-02), Manual of Political Economy (1906), and his magnum opus a four-volume: Treatise on General Sociology (1912), among other miscellanea of articles.

Collected Scientific Papers (Paul Samuelson)From 1937 to 1940, American economist Paul Samuelson studied at Harvard, where, through influence of Lawrence Henderson, via some type of Henderson-Sorokin debate (Ѻ), and or Edwin Wilson influence, became imbibed with a Gibbs-Pareto conception of economics, according to which minima and maxima of utility, and economic equilibrium, would be determined akin to how minima and maxima are determined in thermodynamics; and thereafter would pen out a five-volume collected works set on this basis.

Goethe collected worksIn 1832 (190 ME), German polyintellect Johann Goethe, at the time of his death (reaction end), had amassed all the world's knowledge into a large 142-volume collected works set, among which, as he proclaimed, his Elective Affinities (1809), built directly on Newton’s last and final Query 31, was his best book:
Elective Affinities ns

Schopenhauer collection In 1816, the newly emerging 18-year-old philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, met Goethe, thereafter entering into a multi-year dialog about the nature of the so-called "will" of the chemicals, human will, and the relationship of both of these to “elective affinities”, which Schopenhauer later summarizes as follows:

“As the title indicates [Elective Affinities], though Goethe was unaware of this, [it] has as its foundation the idea that the will, which constitutes the basis of our inner being, is the same will that manifests itself in the lowest, inorganic phenomena.”

He would go on to infuse Goethe’s theory of chemical will into his theory of will in his monumental two-volume The World as Will and Representation (1818, 1844), explaining, therein, how chemical phenomena and reactions scale up to the human-human interaction level. Schopenhauer’s collected works, supposedly, total six-volumes. (Ѻ)

Will to Power (manuscript)In 1868, German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche abandoned his struggle of the Hegel scholars and seized on the writings of Schopenhauer; a result was the famous 1882 proclamation: “God is dead”; resultant upswings in beliefs in nihilism and atheism; and the writing of some his 5,000+ pages, estimated as to be 18-volumes (Ѻ) to 50-volumes (Ѻ) of collected works set; the magnum opus of which, slated as Will to Power (see: will to power), however, following his 1889 breakdown, never reached complete fruition, and was only published posthumously as found near-to-finished; a portion of his collected works, shown below: (Ѻ)

Nietzsche collected works (segment)

Freud collected worksIn 1873, Austrian student Sigmund Freud entered medical school, instead of his alternative choice of law school, having been influenced in this decision, by one of Goethe’s poem; by 1895, he had somehow, via Hermann Helmholtz (1882), assimilated Gibbs’ notions of free energy/bound energy (F = U – TS), as outlined in his "A Project for Scientific Psychology"; by 1910, having been influenced by Friedrich Schiller’s 1795 “The World Ways” poem about how just as water drives the mill so to do love and hunger drive society, he began to pen out his theory of psychological drives; and in 1919 about his death drive theory wrote:

“The theme of death, [that I] have stumbled onto [is] an odd idea via the drives and [I] must now read all sorts of things that belong to it, for instance Schopenhauer.”

Freud penned out a 24-volume collected works set on this basis. (Ѻ) See: Freud-Schiller drive theory.

Gibbs collected worksIn 1876, American engineer Willard Gibbs published his On the Equilibrium of Heterogeneous Substances, thus laying out the bound energy/free energy model of modern chemical thermodynamics; which he followed by his 1902 Statistical Mechanics (see: statistical mechanics), among other miscellanea of subjects, found in his collected works (pictured).

In the 1860s, American physical historian Henry Adams began to search for a “basis for a systematic conception of it all”, namely one law governing “animate beings”, “inanimate nature”, and “everything in the universe”; by 1873 had come to define “social chemistry” as the study of the “mutual attraction [and repulsion] of equivalent human molecules”; from 1889 to 1891 penned out a nine-volume History of the United States of American, solely to prove to his own satisfaction that causal laws govern human movement; by 1907 had penned his most-famous The Education of Henry Adams, explaining how, among other things, inadequate the standard American education system, up through a advanced Harvard education, is, particularly in respect to the physical sciences applied to ‘whys and wherefores of existence’ [Zucker’s term]:
Henry Adams (collected works)
In 1809 had penned his 44-page essay: “The Phase Rule of History”, in which he contended that Willard Gibbs’ theory of equilibrium, as explained in his On the Equilibrium of Heterogeneous Substances, applies not merely to gross movements of man organized into society, but to man’s thoughts (Ѻ), according to which he applied the following principle: “every equilibrium, or phase, begins and ends with what is called a critical point, at which, under a given change of temperature or pressure, a mutation occurs into another phase [or equilibrium]”, to equilibrium changes in history; and by 1910 penned his A Letter to American Teachers of History, that this logic should become the basis for teaching students about history.

The Philosophy of American History (1945) cIn 1945, American physical historian Morris Zucker building on Henry Buckle and Henry Adams, tried to upgrade what Adams had done, albeit in a reverse sense, namely to pen out a physics-chemistry like "field theory" of history, in a volume one, and then to prove the semi-scientific theory of history in the second volume by analysis of American history, from its beginnings, and then make predictions into its future.

Jung (collected works)Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, building on Freud’s beginnings, would go on to pen out a 20+ volume collected set (Ѻ), elaborating on psychodynamic notions of psychic energy and psychic entropy, etc., occurring in the psyche or mind.

In 1995, American electrochemical engineering student Libb Thims begun mulling over the same problem that Goethe worked on in his Elective Affinities (1809); began to see into the solution in 2001-2002, and thereafter began to research and investigate all the various paths this solution leads, e.g. as in study of the some 600-800 thinkers to have applied chemistry, physics, and or thermodynamics to the humanities; the result of which, as of 2013, is a 10-volume (and growing) collected works set:
