QUESTIONS:
Q1: When was this website started?

A1: On 04/27/05.


Q2: What is the utility of Human Thermodynamics [HT]?

A2: HT is the science that studies energy interactions in human life.  Subsequently, since:
Life is the animated interaction of Matter with Energy

and since HT is the science that understands these interactions, it thus owns the assignment to analyze, predict, model, answer, and to explain any question related to all of human phenomena!


Q3: Where is HT headed?

A3: In the near future, we as a society will be readily equipped to grant PhD's in human thermodynamics -- with the sole purpose to encourage research, investigation, and glide-path development for the betterment of humankind.


Q4: Why was this website started?

A4: The reasons are several fold:

1. To establish a free educational website on human thermodynamics
2. To provide a link-up hub for HT researchers world-wide.
3. To provide a sales-outlet to sell HT books.
4. To institute an HT Discussion Group, Chat Room, Web-Polls, News, etc.
5. To roll-out a new bi-annual Journal of Human Thermodynamics.
5. A site to submit any and all sorts of questions related to human phenomenon.


Q5: How was this website constructed?

A5: With the help of the web-site designers and builders at Homestead.com.


Q6: Is thermodynamics applicable to human life?

A6: Yes, thermodynamics as a science is based on the reaction where hydrocarbons react with oxygen to form carbon dioxide and water wherein resultantly heat (or energy in transit) is given of in the form of work.  These terms, by definition, are molecules -- anything composed of two or more atoms.  Humans, by definition, are large biomolecules that react together to form other new human biomolecules (as children) wherein energy in the form of work is released into the universe.


Q7: How can I learn more about this new branch of science?

A7: The publication of 'HUMAN THERMODYNAMICS', a 4-volume 1,100-pg book series, is slated to begin in the Fall/Winter season of 2005 - beginning with:

1. A pre-publication, 100-pg, synopsis minibook [Initial Cost = $19.95] entitled:

Q11: Is there any religious bias underlying Cessation Thermodynamics?

A11: No, it is straight textbook all-the-way down to the last fundamental particle.  However, it is designed to be acceptable to all of the world's 19 religious categories and it has been market-tested, with each of these categories (by having a broad array of people read it), for visceral-acceptability. 


Q12: When are the 3 main volumes of Human Thermodynamics [HT] to be published?

A12: After a substantial reader-base has been established via the cessation minibook; approximately:
VI: 2005, VII: 2006, VIII: 2007.


Q13: Have the three main HT volumes already been written?

A13: Yes, the main work, research, and writing of HT (volumes I-III) was done between 2001 and 2004.


Q14: What is the outline of the 3-volume, 1,000-pg, HT textbook series?

A14: See: Tabular Outline


Q15: What do people think about HT and its applications to human life?

A15: See: review comments @ TESTIMONIALS


Q16: What do people who have no affiliation to this project whatsoever think about HT and its applications when a brief synopsis of its principles is dropped unknowingly into their lap?

A16: See: REACTIONS from a group of Wikipedia encyclopeda-mediators regarding an accidental encyclopedia-style HT SUMMARY article posted to its website.


Q17: From whence did the impetus behind the development of HT stem?

A17: The process was a series of steps:
1. People vote this topic to the most unanswered modern day conundrum.  That is, when polled, people admittedly rank the question of 'existence following cessation' as the biggest unknown
.
2. The highest-selling book in the history of publication contains at its core:

'A tentative hypothesis concerning the whereabouts of a person following cessation'

3. According to market testing (people who have read the four HT books) the three most controversial topics are:

(a) Cessation
(b) Beauty
(c) Homosexuality

4. Reviewers who have read both Volumes I-III and C2S respond that C2S is much easier to read for the layperson.

5. When a person (or fortress) acknowledges an impending attack, it's only natural to fortify the weakest-link -- if the weakest link fails -- the rest will fail.  In other words, the Cessation Thermodynamics is the weakest-link of the compendium; no scientist in the history of humankind has ever satisfactorily solved the riddle of consciousness in relation to cessation.

'06 Q & A
FAQ #1: How do I source the IoHT's Lists of 180+ Variations of the 5 Laws of Thermodynamics?

Answer #1: Below is an example:

Thims, L., senior editor. (2005) “110+ Variations of the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics.” Chicago: Institute of Human Thermodynamics. [URL]: http://www.humanthermodynamics.com/2nd-Law-Variations.html

FAQ #2: Does the IoHT exchange reciprocal links?

Answer #2: Only if it is related (and tasteful), in a theoretical way, to the thermodynamics of human life; below are some recently submitted examples (see: HT Links):


FAQ #3: Can I pay to advertise on the any of the IoHT websites?

Answer #3: Thanks, but no thanks.  The IoHTs focus is on information dissemination.  Below is a recently submitted example:

Our company ExpoActive operates an online advertising service and we are interested in purchasing ad space on your website. Right now we want to have our ad shown on all pages of your site at your discretion.  To see examples of how ExpoActive ads can look, click below:


4. On 12/05/02 Thims decided it would be in his own interest - tuition reimbursement - and societies interest to make attempts at writing up a short book to present this solution -- having never before had any inkling or desire to write.

5. On 11/10/03 Thims synthesized the concept of Human Molecular Orbital Theory as based on Hybridized Molecular Orbital Theory of small molecules according to the Schrodinger Equation.

6. On 05/10/04 Thims uncovered the Field Particle Exchange Theory of inter-human molecular bonding as based on QED, QCD, particle physics, evolutionary psychology, and the fundamental particles, which defines human molecules to be bonded electromagnetically via connections of either direct or indirect photon bonds.

7. On 01/23/05 Thims synthesized a near-to-coherent version of the Cessation Conservation Hypothesis - C2S -- owing to a bit of fueled inspiration from 20-year-old friend whose Mother and Grandmother were both murdered over the Holidays a month prior.
[boyfriend of mother attempted an insurance scam].

See: C2S Timeline - Click Here
1. Libb Thims, in '95, as an undergraduate chemical engineering student at the University of Michigan, during a course called Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics II, was introduced to an equality called the:
∆G = ∆H – T∆S
Gibbs free energy equation

which is defined as: able to measure the spontaneity of any reaction.  That is, in plain talk, chemical engineers use it to decide if or not a reaction is to be feasible.

2. Knowing intuitively that the process whereby a man [Mx] meets a women [Fy] resulting to bond in a relationship:
Mx + Fy --> MxFy

is a chemical reaction, Thims resultantly developed an incessant urge to figure out how the Gibbs free energy equation applies to human life, via using a sort of reverse-engineering, top-down, dissection methodology solving approach to the problem.  In other words, in Thims' mind, rather than wasting one's time going out with multitudes of boyfriends and girlfriends with no pre-defined textbook game plan or generally agreed upon choosing procedure in efforts to find that perfect match, we should, in theory be able to use the Gibbs free energy equation to predetermine if or not a 'match' is going to work -- which is all anybody really wants.

3. On 11/15/01 @ 3:00 AM, while up memorizing anatomy and while reading Hawking's A Brief History of Time, Thims solved, as a first approximation, the Gibbs free energy equation's applicability to the human reaction mechanism, after seven year's worth of puzzle dabbling, using a sort of tabular plug-n-chug method whereby one variable was changed, while holding the others constant, so to observe its resultant effect on the change in free energy [G]; then doing the same with the other variables -- i.e., the 'before' and 'after' values of enthalpy [H] and entropy [S] when viewing the base human reaction mechanism with a reaction time of τ = 33 years - i.e. time per generation.  See: Libbs' Human Thermodynamics VI-VIII for full derivation. A similar table is shown below, where APA stands for average physical attractiveness, and I stands for average neurological intelligence or intellectual attractiveness.  Hence, either decreasing intelligence or decreasing physical attractiveness makes a pair-bonding reaction less likely to occur as indicated by smaller (negative) values of Gibbs free energy change.
FAQ #3: Can I pay to advertise on the any of the IoHT websites?

Answer #3:

FAQ #4: Can I use quotes from your website for my school research project??

Answer #4: Yes, just source the Institute of Human Thermodynamics (IoHT) appropriately.

FAQ #5: I just accidentally bumped into your site, what are you folks all about?

Answer #5: We are a growing, internet-linked, group of individuals (mostly scientists) that have a penchant for the study of thermodynamic and chemical applications of human life.  In a nutshell, the laws of thermodynamics are the only physical laws of science that have a direct bearing on the process of human life.  Human thermodynamics is a new, in development, science with this focal point in mind.  The essential tool of thermodynamics is the ability to be able to predict human chemical reactions.  In any standard chemistry textbook, for example, the chemical thermodynamics chapters are the ones dealing with reaction feasibility.  The application of these principles to human life is the central focus of human thermodynamics.

'08 Q & A
FAQ #1: How do join the Institute of Human Thermodynamics?

Answer #1: Contact IoHT organizer Libb Thims (questions@humanthermodynamics.com) and submit a 3-10 page article to be published in the Journal of Human Thermodynamics.
FAQ #2: Has the IoHT ad policy changed?

Answer #2: Four of the members of the IoHT have joined to develop a new human thermodynamics based mate-matching/dating website (ReactionMatch.com), set to launch in 2010, that will match people based on free energy compatibilities (or affinity compatibilities) using the standard spontaneity criterion of chemical thermodynamics. Hence, we are testing ad-programs on a few pages (1, 2) to see their operation.
