About the speaker

The speaker is American electrochemical engineer Libb Thims. In the 1990s, Thims completed two undergraduate degrees, one in chemical engineering, followed by one in electrical engineering, at the University of Michigan, finishing in the top 8 percent of his class, after which me moved to Chicago, and began working on a combined MD-PhD degree, focused in the areas of neuroscience and evolutionary psychology, a project that was put on hold when in 2001 he began to progressively see though some of the puzzles to the deeply-riddled science of human chemical thermodynamics, namely how to predict human chemical reactions, e.g. love at first sight or world wars, using free energy determinates and the spontaneity criterion of chemical reactions.

In 2005, Thims launched the Journal of Human Thermodynamics; in 2007, Thims published Human Chemistry, the first-ever textbook on science of chemistry of human molecules, which was nominate for a Nobel Prize by Russian physical chemist Georgi Gladyshev; in 2008 he published The Human Molecule, on the historical use of human molecular theory, which inspired the completion of a PhD dissertation in ecological engineering, by American civil engineer Jeff Tuhtan, on the logic of a fish as molecule perspective; in 2011, Thims’ 26-element formulaic definition of a human found inclusion in Advanced Engineering Thermodynamics, by Annammalai, Puri, and Jog, as the new standard textbook definition of a human:
In 2009, Thims solved the “great problem of natural philosophy”, namely the life from non-life puzzle; in 2012, Thims was voted on at YouTube as having the “highest IQ ever”, with 35 thumbs up, above that of Goethe (IQ=230), Einstein (IQ=220), and Newton (IQ=215). Since 2007, Thims has been working on Hmolpedia, currently at a six volume print set, shown below, an online resource about everything and everyone ever written on human thermodynamics, human chemistry, and human physics, which currently draws some 70,000+ page views per month. Thims’ 29-30 Jun 2013 invited key speaker talk on “Econoengineering and Economic Behavior: Particle, Atom, Molecule, or Agent Models” at the University of Pitesti, Romania, and their Socioeconomic Physics workshop, will be Thims’ 5th university lecture. A present objective of Thims is to found America’s first two cultures university department, focused on bridging the physical sciences, social sciences, and engineering sciences into one unified teaching subject, pure and applied, tentatively named “human molecular engineering”.

An introductory talk to mechanical engineering thermodynamics students on the application of thermodynamics to systems of humans. Elaboration of the Cengel-Boles human thermodynamics examples will given. The 1952 definition, by English physicist C.G. Darwin, of the science of “human thermodynamics” as the statistical mechanical study of conservative dynamical systems of “human molecules” will be given. The modern 21st century science of human chemical thermodynamics, as the study of the free energies of human molecules will be introduced, tracing the history of the subject from the inception of German polymath Johann Goethe’s 1796 affinity chemistry based human chemical theory, though German physicist Hermann Helmholtz’s famous 1882 thermodynamic theory of affinity, up though modern human free energy theory, such as American physical chemist Thomas Wallace’s 2009 “The Fundamentals of Thermodynamics Applied to Socioeconomics”. The main anchor points of the talk are shown visually outlined below:  
Most recently, in 2013, Thims’ 500 person listing of human thermodynamics pioneers, which took ten years of research to construct, was cited in the University of California, Berkeley research misconduct investigation into the Juarrero-Deacon non-reductive materialism theory misappropriation allegation as disproof of American complexity theorist Michael Lissack’s allegation, against American neurological anthropologist Terrence Deacon, of “plagiarism by negligence”.
