So happy about that... I don't even want to imagine that molecule, :P.

Is "him", a male? a human? an earthian? a real person? made of plastic? a toy? an animal? a vehicle?

Clever as in smart? witty? deep? thoughtful? insightful?

Is this education related? school? university? college?

Ah, no chemistry involved...
Did he make something easier? Did he invent something? Did he get out of a situation? Gain something tangible? Gain money? Or keep from losing something?

And the other one - was he also a supernatural being? Depends on how you define supernatural, but probably no or a fictional, but not supernatural, creature? So most likely this.
