Powered CHNOPS+20 element thing

Thims (CHNOPS plus 20 molecular form) (2015)
Screen shot of Libb Thims holding the hmolscience periodic table to teaching six kids what they are, from an explicit atheistic physicochemical point of view, during the 2015 "Zerotheism for Kids" lecture, wherein he used the phrase "CHNOPS+20 molecular form" (note: the "+22" was a typo on the card, at the time; a memory slip, related to the less accurate 22-element Sterner-Elser human molecular formula). [1]
In hmolscience, powered CHNOPS+20 element thing, or powered CHNOPS+20 element “phase” (Adams, 1908), is the modern physico-chemically-neutral definition of a person (see: definition table), generally stylized on the historical acceptable precursor definitions of a human, namely: “phase” (Adams, 1908) [see: social phase], “CHNOPS combination” (Ostwald, 1926), “evolved CHNOPS plus substance” (Thone, 1936), “powered CHNOPS+ matrix” (Swan ,1974), “26-element reactive molecule” (Thims, 2002), “26-element energy/heat driven atomic structure” (Annamalai, 2011), all stylized on classical Greek thing philosophy view of nature, wherein the component term “powered” usurps the defunct historical term “bio-” (see: life terminology upgrades), “CHNOPS”, refers to the core elements of animate things, and the “+20” is shorthand for the twenty elements of human composition not listed (see: human molecular formula).

The following are related quotes:

“No one shall persuade me that I am not a phase.”
Henry Adams (1908), “Letter to Elizabeth Cameron”, Sep 29 [2]

“I am made from the C-H-N-O-S-P combination from which a Bunsen, Helmholtz, Kirchhoff came.”
Wilhelm Ostwald (1926), Lifelines: an Autobiography [3]
