Little Hands

@ Sunday Times Books LIVE

Good Heavens! By George! Thank you!

Thank you very much George EllisGood Heavens! Little Hands! Books! Blogs! Teapots! The laws of Physics, explain much, but do not give a realistic description of causality in the truly complex hierarchical structures and the outcomes of intentional design such as BOOKS! This is what I read this morning in George F.R. Ellis’s essay Physics, Complexity and Causality, published in Nature (June 2005). I highly recommend the article as it is a short, but fascinating and inspiring peek into the mind, work and universe of very generous George Ellis. It is one of the five hundred other published articles by George Ellis, Distinguished Professor of Complex Systems in the Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics at the University of Cape Town. (More are listed on George’s web page, which will surely cause you to say: Good Heavens!)

Thank you very much George, for the 83 boxes of Little Hands books you donated for the children of Luvuyo orphanage.

    There was such a great response to the request for boxes of books for Luvuyo that, Carol spoke to George and he has agreed that half of the books he donated will go to the Vrygrond Community Library, along with those books donated by Penny and Liz. Carol has another community literacy project, in need of books and I will post more about that project early next week.
