If you can't explain it to a six year old, you're not six...?

If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t really understand it.

Albert Einstein

Jeffrey, who now works as a High school maths teacher, put this at the top of an essay on Stephen Pinker's How the Mind works. He also linked to US grip on internet challenged which appeared in The Asian Times on 13 October 2005. Perhaps should in weblogworld but is generally interesting, because we're all depositing our writing in cyber-servers.

Jeff also pointed out this story about Jagadis Chandra Bose, which is great. The arty types amongst you will probably be left quite cold by it...

Things like this make me want to try harder to write a decent story with a scientific background. Maybe try Consciousness and the novel and Thinks.
