Human Molecule derivation procedure and element arrangement methodology:

The Hill Order

Chemical Abstracts arranges its formulae according to a system known as the Hill Order, developed by Edwin A. Hill and published in 1900. A compound's Hill Order formula may be different from its empirical formula. There are some basic rules to follow to put your molecular formula in Hill Order:

1. For carbon-containing compounds, carbon (C) appears first.
2. Carbon is followed immediately by hydrogen (H), if present.
3. Compounds are listed by increasing number of atoms.
4. All non-carbon element symbols follow in alphabetical order, and within alphabetical order are listed by increasing atom count.

For example, the empirical formula for Sodium Chloride is NaCl. The Hill Order for Sodium Chloride is ClNa. For Sodium Biocarbonate, the empirical formula in NaHCO3, and the Hill Order is CHNaO3.
This list of compounds is arranged according to Hill Order:


Note 6: in accordance with Hill Order, we arrange the (first approximation) formula for the human 
molecule as below:
Note 7: the calculation of the human molecular formula was based on a meta-analysis of 9 human mass composition tables (predominately: Emsley’s Nature’s Building Blocks – an A-Z guide to the elements) + 5 Human Nutritional Almanacs (predominately: Kirschman’s Nutrition Almanac 4th Ed.).  See: Thims’ Human Thermodynamics VI-VIII 1st Ed. for full derivation.

In defining ourselves in this manner, we see that:

1. We are water-based molecules (more so than being carbon-based); by weight we are 65% water in composition.
2. We indicate our evolutionary descendancy to that of water [H20] as visualized on an evolutionary

molecular build-up table

3. We see our thermodynamic evolutionary connectiveness to hydrogen [H] -- the first element formed.

Human Molecule ‘Symbol Choice’ - Methodology:

When naming atoms, elements, or molecules there exists a standard method for choosing their representative abbrevations. 

1. Use the initial letter as a capital and the second letter as a lower case, unless that symbol has already been used for an element, in which case you take the next letter, and so on. 
2. Some names come to us from antiquity, as: gold [Au], from the Latin word aurum, which means ‘glow of sunrise’, or tin [Sn], from the Latin word stannum, which may be derived from the Sanscrit word stan, which means ‘hard’, etc.
3. Some common elements have single letter abbrevations, as: carbon [C], hydrogen [H], oxygen [O], etc.

Using  this format, we will smartly subdivide these human molecules into three groups:

Mx = Male Human Molecule
Fy = Female Human Molecule
Bc = Immature Human Molecule [i.e. a Baby/Child aged -9 mo. to 15 yrs] 

In terms how we arrived at these three specific human molecule symbol choices, let’s explain.  A rather lengthy search of literature, Internet, bookstores, textbooks, etc., shows there to be no ‘claimed’, or pre-defined, or specifically chosen symbols for these molecules.  Essentially, there is no blueprint.  However, throughout our studies, and research, several people were found to be making a remote stab at this subject.  According to our research, the one who jabbed the closest is David Hwang, a chemistry professor at Emory University, and his three-page website, describing his thoughts, similar to those presented here, is:

His basic human chemical reaction is (is a ‘couple’ forming reaction):

CE28HE28NE27OE27PE25SE25CaE25KE24ClE24NaE24MgE24SeE24FeE23CoE23 CuE23FE23IE23ZnE22SiE22MnE20BE20CrE20VE20SnE19MoE18NiE16

Human Thermdynamic Feynman Diagrams:

Using this methodology, together with the concept of the photon bond in conjunction with satellite tracking technologies, we can construct single generation human molecular topological substrate surface reaction maps, or time-detailed human molecular network-dynamics models, detailing the bond forming and bond breaking interactions for the typical person over the course of any one human life:
Human Molecular Feynman Diagrams
By definition, a molecule is an aggregate of at least two atoms in a definite arrangement
held by one or more of the 4 fundamental forces [Source: Chang’s Chemistry 6th Ed.]; hence—
humans are molecules. [Source: Thims’ Human Thermodynamics VI-VIII 1st Ed.]

The force bonding humans to each other is the electromagnetic force through what are known as
photon bonds [Source: Thims’ Human Thermodynamics VI-VIII 1st Ed.] and the force bonding humans vertically to the substrate earth is the force of gravitation through what is known as a gravitational bond.

When attraction outweighs repulsion a bond forms and energy is released.

To build on this, we also need to add in the formation of a child (human molecule).  In doing this, it would be nice to simply use: [M] for the Male molecule, [F] for the Female molecule, and [B] for the Baby/Child molecule.  However, these symbols are already assigned: M=Mega (or 10E6), F=Fluorine, and B=Boron.  Next in line, we might smartly choose the standard procedure for symbolically labeling elements, which is to use the initial letter as a capital, and the second letter as the lower case.  This would give us [Ma], [Fe], and [Ba]; but as we know ‘Ma’ is short for Mama, Fe=iron, and Ba=Barium. 

At this point, we would be wise to keep the initial letter as: M, F, and B, but to choose new (second) lowercase letters.  And since the letters ‘x’ and ‘y’ seem to intuitively feel correct, owing to the fact that the 23rd human chromosome determines the sex of the individual, according to the rules: XY=Male and XX=Female; then we will lean towards the letters ‘x’, ‘y’, and ‘c’ (child) for the choice of our (second) lower case letters.   However, for our final decision, we will use the letters in a sort of ‘reverse manner’ so to allow the ‘feel’ of the situation to prevail.  Such that, throughout Human Thermodynamics we will adhere to the symbol choices of:

Mx = Male molecule (analogous to Extreme-Sports)
Fy = Female molecule (analogous to Gynecology)
Bc = Baby/child molecule (or a person aged 0-15yrs) 

This, in conclusion, is owing to the fact that it seems to ‘feel’ sort of strange, or unnatural, to use the symbol choices of: ‘My’ (for the male molecule), and ‘Fx’ (for female molecule), as would be the case if we let the 23rd chromosome rule dictate [i.e. XY=Male and XX=Female].

Regarding other ‘types’ of human molecules we use the following symbols:

Mx = Male
Fy = Female
MxFy = Bonded Couple
Bc = Baby or Child
Fa = Father
Ma = Mother
Sb = Sibling
Gf = Grandfather
Gm = Grandmother
Up = Paternal Uncle
Um = Maternal Uncle
Ap = Paternal Aunt
Am = Maternal Aunt
Cp = Paternal Cousin
Cm = Maternal Cousin
Ne = Niece
Nw = Nephew
Bf = Boyfriend
Gf = Girlfriend
Fc = Close Friend
F = Friend
Fd = Distant Friend
Nr = Neighbor
W = Work or Job
Sc = School
Si = Society

M + F → MF
