First coined 1605. From chemist, chymist, from Latin alchimista, from Arabic اَلْكِيمِيَاء (al-kīmiyāʾ), from article اَل (al-) + Ancient Greek χυμεία (khumeía, “art of alloying metals”), from χύμα (khúma, “fluid”), from χυμός (khumós, “juice”), from χέω (khéō, “I pour”).
- (uncountable) The branch of natural science that deals with the composition and constitution of substances and the changes that they undergo as a consequence of alterations in the constitution of their molecules.
- (countable) An application of chemical theory and method to a particular substance.
- the chemistry of iron

- (informal) The mutual attraction between two people; rapport*
- Since NLP was created and we know more about Rapport, means it's not focused only in-between some mutual attraction, like they mention in this text.
Rapport means that, you reached the needed point of comprehension/vibration with that person in communicating and you can follow his structure of mind to access to it easier.
- Historical note: This word and its derivatives were formerly spelled chy- or sometimes chi- (i.e., chymistry, chymist, chymical, etc., or chimistry, chimist, chimical, etc.) with pronunciation depending on the spelling.
