Above we see a Feynman Diagram where an apparent force [wavy line] is transmitted between two moving matter-particles: Ô1 and Ô2 [straight lines].  Ô1 could be a cute guy walking along the beach.  The force-particle [~~~] could be a visual image (photons) reflected off his body, or it could be a scent molecule (pheromone) exuded from his body, or it could vocal information (packets of pressure-varied air molecule) released from his oral cavity, and so on; Ô2 may be a random girl walking by who happens to receive or ‘absorb’ this force-particle.  In the above diagram, however, we see a destabilizing event.  That is, through the exchange of a messenger particle Ô1 was resultantly repelled away from Ô2, and visa-versa.

Generally, the exchange of a force particle [~~~] between two bodies [Ô1, Ô2] unfolds according to the following four-step process:


Herein we have been introduced to a revolutionary new theoretical psyco-neuro-thermo-dynamic model of inter human bonding.  To summarize, through these time-averaged processes of 'fundamental' psycho-neuro-thermo-dynamic bonding interactions, however slightly, the character of the matter-particles, or humans, involved are changed.  The cumulative action of such minute changes in character, velocity, and activity patterns, is the effective realization of the photon bond in human life as can be measured via energy absorbing and releasing activities.  More directly, via PNT bonding (or photonic or 'fundamental' bonding) humans become fixated spatially and temporally, as would be viewed from a distance in space, to form bound state units as families, networks, corporations, etc.; just as quarks are bonded spatially, via gluonic bonding, to form bound state units as; protons and neutrons. 

From here we have other variations as: 'interpersonal' PNT bondings, 'familial' PNT bondings, 'social' PNT bondings, 'political' PNT bondings, 'economic' PNT bondings, etc.  In this light, networks of individuals, each in his or her own social sphere, connect or 'bond', via photon-mediated exchanges as: financial, emotional, visual, sensual, physical, verbal, etc., to one another to configure formations called relationships, or groups, or companies, etc. 


In this article, we will unequivocally establish a first-ever blueprint on the thermodynamics of the human bond.  In doing this, we must first acknowledge the existence of the 16 smallest fundamental particles presently-known to be at the core of everything; as tabulated below [particles relevant in human life are bolded]:


Particles with integral spin [0, 1, or 2] essentially comprise the energy [E] portion of the universe - more generally known as the 4 fundamental forces; particles with ½ integral spin essentially comprise the matter [m] portion of the universe - more generally known as the 12 fundamental particles:

Free energy change herein [∆G=0] defines equilibrium bonding situations.  Do not waste your time with these bonding situations, as they could adhere or form if so desired, but such a union would be underlyingly weak in constitution requiring repair with the slightest perturbation.  These bonds are characterized by a duality of energy ‘absorption’ and ‘release’, i.e. mediocre stability and or instability; in sum, a nil effect.


Free energy change herein [∆G>0] defines inherently harmful bonding situations.  Become incapable of adhering among, mixing with, or holding on to any bonding situation wherein there exists a feeling or show of aversion, hesitation, unwillingness, or disinclination to potentially work or function.  These bonds are characterized by energy ‘absorption’ and great instability.


Free energy change herein [∆G<0] defines favored bonding situations.  Be keen to those bonding situations arising from natural feeling or innate tendency without external constraint.  These bonds are characterized by energy ‘release’ and great stability.
Here epsilon [ε] is called the reaction coordinate, and characterizes the extent or degree to which the reaction has taken place.  The meaning of stipulation [1] is such that differential displacements of the chemical reaction can occur at the equilibrium state without causing changes in the total Gibbs energy of the system. Thus, if a mixture of chemical species is not in chemical equilibrium, any reaction that occurs at constant T and P must lead to a decrease in the total Gibbs energy of the system.  Moreover, although the equilibrium expressions are developed for closed systems at constant T and P, they are not restricted, in application, to systems that are actually closed and reach equilibrium states along paths of constant T and P [5].  Thermodynamically, the term 'closed' implies that energy may flow though the system boundary but not matter.  The earth as a system, aside from the occasional meteorite, is a closed system.  Human life, by definition, evolves chemically in this closed system.

Note, technically, that when the closed system 'earth' is broken up, for thermodynamic analysis purposes, into systems, subsystems, atmospheric cells, climate bands, thermodynamic niches, land isolations, etc., we now have quasi-closed systems, meaning that over evolutionary timescales the 92 naturally-occuring elements that make up our seperate systems transport through each of these subsystems to relative degrees via what are called biogeochemical cycles.  For example, the mean residence time of ocean water with respect to the atmosphere is 3,100 years.  Or, the flux of carbon between desert soil and the atmosphere is 10E13 g C/yr, yielding a turnover time of 85,000 years.  Similarly, nitrogen fixation rates are about 10 Kg N/yr per each hectare of the earth's land mass [6].  Thus, when each subsystem is viewed in isolation at the approprite long time scale, it may be defined to be open to the flux of matter.  However, by using what is called the Law of Termporial Heirarchies, as developed during the later half of the 20th century by the Russan physical Chemist Georgi Galdyshev, which delineates reacting systems by like reaction times (i.e. similar half-lifes) we can define semi-closed (to mass flux) reacting systems for appropriate Gibbsian thermodynamic analysis.

In this manner, if we choose a town to be the thermodynamic system, and a collection of human lives to be the reactants, in a simple manner, the rule goes: if ∆G is less than zero the reaction is likely to occur; if ∆G is greater than zero the reaction is not likely occur; if ∆G is equal to zero the reaction could go either way—however lacking in vigor for either case.  In common language, ∆G < 0 is analogous to being at the top of a big waterslide—it’s going to be fun and exciting all the way down; ∆G > 0 is like being at the bottom of a huge waterslide—it’s going to be a pain in the ass to climb to the top, you’re probably going to have to wait in line for a long time, and it might close before you reach the top; ∆G = 0 is similar to being around a small playground slide—you can keep going up and down it all day long—but sooner or later you’re going to get tired and bored—in time you will begin to seek other adventures.

Thermodynamically speaking, Bad Relationships [poor bonds; ∆G>0] absorb energy from one’s life; discontentment results.  Good Relationships [fervent bonds; ∆G<0] provide stability; out of such stability energy is released. Such energy is then inadvertently funneled outward, into the universe, through one’s bonded associations [work, friends, family, society, etc.]; contentment results.  Ambivalent Relationships [equilibrium bonds; ∆G=0] both absorb and release energy from one’s life; confusion results.  The latter of these is the most difficult to deal with; people in such relationships will tend to cyclically break up and get back together again many times over.  Typically, however by the fifth or so breakup such couples seem to catch on to the underlying pattern in their relationship and in finality agree to call it quits.  The following axioms delineate the three variations of the inter human bond in all avenues of life:

Contrary to popular opinion, bonds function to hold things together, not by imaginary bands of connection, but rather by the exchange of messenger particles.  These messenger particles, according to particle physics standards, show themselves to us as one or more of the four fundamental ‘primary’ force particles [gluons, photons, bosons, and gravitons] or via their ‘secondary’ intermediates; in solids for example as phonons; in human life, for example as: pheromones, emotion, information, or money, etc.  As it is generally agreed, every observed physical phenomenon, from glaxies colliding, to two love-birds spirraling towards each other, to quarks jiggling around inside a proton, can thus be explained by these interactions [7].

These exchanges, rather then just pushing particles (or bodies) apart, instead function to change the ‘character’ or resultant behavior of the particles (or bodies) that swap them.  This change in behavior actuates to keep such ‘linked’ bodies in mutual association, over set periods of time, as though there was an apparent force in existence.  As we will explain, any type of fundamental exchange or interaction, underlyingly, is one of the four fundamental forces at work.

In human life, messenger particle absorption, exchange, and release functions through interactions of one or more of the twelve senses of human perception as connected neurologically to the main switchboard: the central nervous system [CNS].  These twelve senses, and their percentage of one’s total sensor package, as well as their effective messenger particle, operator, or mediator are tabulated below:

Using QED, force-particle, field-particle, or messenger particle movement [as gluons, photons, etc.] can be represented by wavy lines [~~~] and matter-particle [Ô] movement [as quarks, electrons, humans, etc.] can be represented by arrows [→→]. Together these components form what are known as Feynman diagrams; developed by the Noble Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman:
As shown, in addition to the five commonly known senses, we have: a kinesthetic sense [6th sense]—for example, when we are accelerated; we have thermosensors—which register temperature fluctuations [7th sense]; we have mechanosensors—which register pressure changes [8th sense]; the vestibular system within our ears, keeps us in balance [9th sense]; we sense the direction of the earth’s magnetic field about us [10th sense]—this causes us to rotate either clockwise or counterclockwise depending on what side of the globe we are on; we can sense an electric field—for example, in front of a TV set [11th sense]; and we can sense various hues of mental thoughts to certain degrees [0th sense]—for example, twins may sometimes sense when their bother or sister has been severely injured [8].   Several of the structures that process these input stimuli are shown below:
All-in-all, as complicated as this may at first seem, these mechanisms, if we neglect gravitational and radioactive phenomena, all boil down to the simple interactions of photons with electrons – just two simple particles.  All inter-human bonding can be traced to interactions of photons with electrons.  This is the realm of quantum electrodynamics [QED], which is at the heart of particle physics.  Put simply, QED is the science that studies the interactions of photons with electrons.  What QED has to do with human bonding is that at the edge of the human senses, which defines the edge of consciousness, are electrons.  These fringe electrons and their interactions with the world of photons about them functions to define all phenomena of the physical world as it is perceived anthropomorphically.  More directly, in the words Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman [1918-1988], one of the founders of QED [9]:
"this theory describes all phenomena of the physical world except the gravitational effect, the thing that holds you in your seats, and radioactive phenomena, which involve nuclei shifting in their energy levels.  So if we leave out gravity and radioactivity, what have we got left?  Gasoline burning in automobiles, foam and bubbles, the hardness of salt or copper, the stiffness of steel.  In fact, biologists are trying to interpret as much as they can about life in terms of chemistry, and as I already explained, the theory behind chemistry is quantum electrodynamics."
As a second example, say Ô1 is a woman at a bar who yells to second woman Ô2: ‘F**K you Bit*h.’  After Ô1 releases this comment, or force-carrying particle, her central nervous system [CNS] convinces her to walk away [recoil].  The second woman Ô2, after hearing this vulgarity, feels the need to leave as the comment has been perceived as ‘repulsive’ rather than ‘attractive’.  Superficially, pressure variations of adjacent air molecules would have carried this information from the vocal cords of the first woman to the eardrum of the second women.  From here, a nerve impulse would have been triggered thus compelling the women, either consciously or unconsciously, to respond accordingly.  At the atomic-level of discernment, however, through each step in this mechanism, photon-exchange would have been at work.  Photons [γ] exchange is what results in the electromagnetic force.

To clarify, in the following diagram we see a loudspeaker creating sound which can be defined for our purposes as a longitudinal wave created by vibrating air-molecules:
In figure (a), to create this wave, first the diaphragm of the speaker moves outward causing the air molecules directly in front of it to compress into a region of high pressure.  This region of high pressure begins to move through the crowd of air molecules—kind of like how we do the ‘wave’ around a football stadium—the people don’t move (around the stadium)—but the wave does.  In figure (b), we see the situation a few moments later where the high pressure region, termed condensation, has moved to the right leaving in its midst a region of low pressure called rarefaction. 

Through this process, condensations and rarefactions, sound travels from the speaker to the listener—the individual air molecules do not move (with the wave)—only the variations in pressure do.  Loosely speaking, each air molecule vibrates back and forth about a fixed location; the more it vibrates, the greater the pressure; the greater the pressure, the more each molecule collides with its neighbor and in doing so passes forward condensations and rarefactions.

At the atomic level, this vibration is a result of photons [γ] exchanging between electrons within molecular orbitals of adjacent air molecules.  Generally, atoms release photons [γ] when they stabilize - where an electron [e-] moves into a stabler ‘lower’ orbital; and absorb photons [γ] when they destabilize - where an electron [e-] moves into a less stable ‘higher’ orbital.  This concept is shown below [where N=Nucleus and n=1,2,3 are electron (e-) orbitals]: 
The more unstable an atom or molecule becomes the more it vibrates.  When variations in vibratory-intensity reach a person’s eardrum, its information content is interpreted by the brain as sound.  This concept is depicted below: 

Using these concepts of fundamental interaction extrapolated into human life, we arrive a mechanism of inter human bonding:


In other words, whatever bonds one procures throughout life, be it occupational bonds, an objective, a marriage, family, friends, neighbors, etc., as long as the sum of the repulsive qualities perceived in those bonds is overcompensated by the sum of attractive qualities—then those bonds will hold.  Whenever repulsion overtakes attraction—the bond will break.  The mechanism at the core of inter-human bonding is the electromagnetic force mediated via direct or indirect photon-exchange [Ô1~~~ Ô2], i.e. a ‘photon bond’.

To determine, as a first approximation, the stable ratio of field-particle exchange (attraction-to-repulsion) inherent within long-term human marriage bondings, we turn to research done by psychology professor John Gottman at the University of Washington.  Over the course of two decades, Gottman systematically videotaped, measured, and studied the interactions of over 2,000 newly married couples.   Specifically, using these recordings Gottman methodically dissected and examined the second-by-second emotional exchange currents found within newly formed marriage bonds, as in: emotional exchange, information exchange, psychological evaluations, financial exchange data, body-homeostasis changes, visual interactive exchange data, verbal swap, interactive argumentative-styles, etc.

Gottman then correlated this collection of data to patterns of divorce, in those specific marriages, years later.  By doing this, Gottman determined that long-term stable [G<0] human marriage bondings are characterized by a 5-to-1 ratio of field particle [γ] exchange attraction-to-repulsion [10].  Common descriptors for both ‘attraction’ and ‘repulsion’ in vernacular terms of human interaction are:

On the reverse end, Gottman showed that when the ratio of field particle [γ] exchange attraction-to-repulsion, within any marriage bond, increases to a 5-to-2 ratio or more the marriage-bond becomes un-stable [G>0] and ‘divorce’ typically follows [10].  These same arguments exist for all bonds in the universe.  For example, within stars, gravitational attraction is balanced by thermonuclear repulsion.  Within atoms, electromagnetic attraction is balanced by coulombic repulsion.  In other words, all bonds in the universe are inherently characterized by a balance of attraction to repulsion; when repulsion becomes too great—the bond will no longer hold.

The rate at which human molecules absorb, process, and emit field particles, or emotional current, is 15 cycles per second [11],  Therefore, if you take and analyze any 10-second video segment of interaction between two people in conversation, and then slow the video down to micro-frames of 1/45th of a second, you will see, by watching the slowed-down version frame-by-frame, what is called ‘interactional synchrony’ - wherein the conversation takes on a rhythmical structure.  For example, you will see each person, within the space of one or two or three 1/45th-of-a-second frames, move a shoulder or cheek or an eyebrow or a hand, sustain that movement, stop it, change direction, and start again.  Moreover, these movements are found to be perfectly timed to each person’s own words.  That is, the timings of stops and starts of each person’s micromovements – the jump and shifts of body and face – with respect to his or her bonded companion, are found to be in perfect harmony, having a frequency of 15 cycles per second.  This process is like a championship ping-pong match of emotional exchange; each catches the other’s emotion, then rapid fire sends back their response. 

Most dramatically – once exchange ends – so too will the bond.  For example, wives who make sour facial expressions when their husbands talk are likely to be separated within four years.10  In this case, the husband ‘caught’ the image of the wife’s facial expression, via photon [γ] absorption onto his retina, and this single repulsive event may result in convincing him, right then and there, to end the marriage.  To clarify, the field particle associated with human bonding is the photon [γ].  For example, if you see [photon γ absorption] someone ‘attractive’, you will unconsciously be compelled to move towards that person to get a better look.  Diagrammatically, in this case, photons γ reflected off his or her body, become absorbed onto photoreceptor cells in your retina, as shown below:
Within these photoreceptor cells, this field particle [photon] then ‘works’ to manipulate a bent fifteen-chain carbon molecule, called retinal, to straighten out:
At the atomic level of discernment, we see that via the absorption of a photon into the atomic orbital of the 11:12 carbon bond that the 11-cis retinal molecule is destabilized, or evolved, into a new temporally straightened configuration (as below).  Hence, what we see here is crude form of fundamental particle mediated pseudo-neuro-molecular animation:
This straightened configuration results in the generation of an electrical impulse or ‘information’, which is then sent to the brain for processing.  You are then compelled to respond accordingly.  It takes a minimum of five photons [γ] to trigger the activation potential of a nerve cell, resulting in the transmission of a nerve impulse, or message, to the brain [9].

As a second example, if you hear someone with an agreeable personality, you will be compelled towards that person.  In this case, as mentioned previously, vibratory motion of air-molecules, owing to photon γ exchange between those neighboring air molecules, creates ocean-like waves of pressure variations, causing specific molecules of the tympanic membrane of the outer eardrum to vibrate.  This vibration moves three bones within the ear: the hammer, the anvil, and the stirrup—the three smallest bones in the body.  These bones press fluid in the inner ear against membranes, which brush tiny hairs that trigger nearby nerve cells, which telegraph messages to the brain as sound.

As a third example, if you smell someone with an un-appealing scent, you will be inclined to unconsciously move away from this person.  Here, diffusional movements [spontaneous movement of particles owing to thermal agitation causing movement from areas of higher concentration to areas of lower concentration] of estrogen or testosterone steroid-like pheromone molecules, through the air, due to inter-molecule photon-photon exchange, reach olfactory receptor sites in your nasal cavity.  This causes those connected nerve cells to trigger appropriately depending upon the type of scent molecule.  As an example, it is well known that people can ‘smell’ asymmetry in potential mates—without ever seeing the person.  If you put three sweaty men, in separate ventilated rooms, and ask any woman, in her estrus phase [around the 12th day of her menstrual-cycle] but not on the pill, to smell the vents of each room and to report as to which vent she is most repulsed by or most attracted to—she will be most repulsed [a change in velocity and direction away from sender] by the smell of the more asymmetric man’s vent, and most attracted [a change in velocity and direction towards from sender] to the more symmetrical man’s vent [12]

The way we register a scent is through a binding process whereby volatile air-born molecules, as for example the wood-scented molecule camphor [C10H16O], shown adjacent, find their way into the special binding sites, or ‘receptor proteins’, located on cilia in the rear of the nose.  Humans can recognize approximately 10,000 scents via approximately 1,000 receptors.  If an air-borne molecule is of the correct complementary shape to that of the receptor protein, the two will then bond temporarily causing changes in connected molecular configurations [ex. bent vs. straight] resulting in trigging connected nerve fibers to fire—this signals the brain with the appropriate information.  The type of bond formed here, would be under the auspices of the electromagnetic force, and would temporarily hold, internally speaking, via photon [γ] exchange between specific atoms of the scent molecule and specific atoms of the receptor protein, wherein, during the bonding phase specific outer-orbital electrons within the receptor protein would ‘jump’ into lower more stable orbitals.
Using Feynman Diagrams [adjacent] we can clarify this description further.  Suppose a woman [Fy] passes two men: a symmetrical man [Mx]S, and an unsymmetrical man [Mx]U.  Regarding scent alone, with relation to only symmetry, then, the adjacent Feynman diagrams would define the resultant interactions via particle exchange.  In the left Feynman diagram, we see a change in the female’s velocity and direction towards the symmetrical man; in the right Feynman diagram, the female is repelled away from the asymmetrical man.  In this type of situation the mediator particle would be, superficially, a scent molecule—yet at the point of contact [i.e. the cilia protein receptor site] the exchange would be of a photon [γ] variety—and the force working to hold the scent molecule to the protein receptor would be electromagnetic.
This discourse was only meant to be an introduction to Inter Human Molecular Bonding Theory.

For those curious, the mathematical framework used to model and analyze the actual structure of photon-bond between humans is called QED [quantum electrodynamics].  This branch of physics was developed in 1926 when the British physicist P.A.M. Dirac discovered an equation describing the motion and spin of electrons that incorporated both the quantum theory and the theory of special relativity.  This theory then became refined and fully developed in the late 1940s by Richard P. Feynman, Julian S. Schwinger, and Tomonaga Shin’ichiro.
The same argument applies for the other senses—which generally fall into five categories: photoreceptors [for light], mechanoreceptors [for touch, sound, and equilibrium], chemoreceptors [for smell and taste], thermoreceptors [for heat], and nociceptors [for pain].  Generally speaking, however, 80% of our sensor input is visual; [13] meaning the majority of the strength of the photon bond between humans is a result of the visual sense.

Re: summary of article

I just finish reviewing your "On the Nature of the Human Bond".  It's rather excellent.  It seems different than what you have presented in your (CT) booklet. The ideas have been expanded, and they make much more "good" sense (they made sense before, but this time they are "enlightening").



Journal of Human Thermodynamics

In human life, as is true with all chemical reactions, relationships, or bond formations, come in three varieties: ‘cold’, ‘ambient’, and ‘hot’.  Take, for example, any two chemicals, as atoms or molecules, and put them into a test-tube.  If the two molecules, when mixed together, like each other, a bond will form, and energy will be given off—i.e. the test-tube will warm up.  If the two molecules, when mixed together, don’t like each other, then no reaction will occur, and the test tube will remain cold.  If the two molecules, when mixed together, are ‘undecided’ about whether or not their relationship could ‘work’, the test tube may both warm up at times and cool down at times—overall there will be a nil temperature change.

These rather difficult ambivalent relationships can be made to ‘work’, however, if one puts such a test-tube, or one’s life, over the flame of a Bunsen burner, i.e. adds energy to the reaction.  Furthermore, these ambivalent relationships may be made to hold or work indefinitely—as long as someone keeps putting energy into the relationship.  Such a task, however, is extremely taxing—and burnout will inevitably result.  That is, if you have to expend great amounts of time and energy in attempts to ‘work’ on your relationship, sort like a job or chore, then resultantly, you will become drained in life; these situations are ill-advised, as inevitably, they won’t forever hold. 

From physical chemistry, there exists a quantity called the change in Gibbs free energy ∆G, which can be used to predict or measure the level of spontaneity or direction of progress for all human chemical reactions [4].  Put simply, in any closed reacting system, i.e. closed with respect to matter but not to energy, only those reactions corresponding to the most negative values of Gibbs free energy change will proceed or evolve in time towards the most stable equilibrium state.  The justification for this directional basis of logic is called the Equilibrium Criteria to Chemical Reactions.  Specifically, this criteria states that the total Gibbs free energy of a closed system at constant T and P must decrease during an irreversible process and that the condition for equilibrium is reached when G attains its minimum value.  At this equilibrium state, we have two stipulations:

[1] (dG)T,P = 0
[2] The total Gibbs energy is a minimum

To intelligently study human life from a reaction point of view it becomes imperative to develop a theory of inter human bonding as based on the fundamentals of thermodynamics, physical chemistry, particle physics, and evolutionary psychology.  More directly, for the sake of objective theoretical analysis, as developed and progressed in the science of human thermodynamics is the concept of the "human molecule" [1].  In this theoretical mode of analysis, entities known as human can aptly be defined as large biomolecules, based on individually-varying atomic and molecular compositions, which are known to relative approximations [2].  Definitively, for the sake of chemical reaction analysis, each human may be defined, according to its exact atomic and molecular count as a uniquely specific twenty-six element human molecule, each varying by composition. 

These details aside, in this article, our intentions will be to address the question: What variation of chemical bond holds such human molecules together in the most essential of all unions: bonded matrimony? To clarify, statistically it is known that 85% of people will inter into, and be transformed though the following chemical reaction [3]:

Mx + Fy --> MxFy + Bc

where Mx = Male Human Molecule, Fy = Female Human Molecule, MxFy = bonded 'couple', and Bc = child. 
Moreover, according to the latest US Census Bureau data sets, 43% of all marriages MxFy will end, i.e. fission, by the 15 year mark; better known as divorce or dissolution of marriage:

MxFy --> Mx + Fy

The question remains, regarding the bonded structure 'Married Couple', which of the four fundamental forces is presently operating to enable such ubiquitous bonds?  More broadly, when a person has a relationship with another person, what force constitutes the 'glue' of that union:

MxFy = ?  = Mx "force" Fy

In this article, out of necessity, we will outline a robust and cogent theoretical model of inter-human bonding, as based on the standard model and its mode of operation, being workable and testable in composition, thus facilitating the peer-review process of either validation or disproof of its principles.

One of the most interesting things about the early 21st century, is the fact that in spite of knowledge that no single person, to date, has written up a single theory or hypothesis as to the nature of the human chemical bond, e.g. see the Wikipedia article human bonding, that, curiously, one can go online to a site such as Yahoo! Answers and post up the question:

"Is there such a thing as a human chemical bond between people?"

and respondents are so sure that the answer is yes that they will fumble out haphazard answers to this question within minutes of being queried; such as shown below:  
The following article to the Journal of Human Thermodynamics [JHT] was left unfinished.  A complete introduction to the human chemical bond, however, can be found in the new 2007, two-volume, 850-page book: Human Chemistry
