The Gradual Emergence of Life II


Welcome to Issue 2 of SHAPE Journal.
The three new papers included here are all continuations of series' commenced in our Double Launch Issue. So we have developed our Blog to trail some intended future strands and keep you up to date on any other news. The Blog can be found out http://theelectronicjournal.blogspot.com...

Currently, there is a selected paper on the Blog to advertise the future publication of a whole series entitled Fractal Unreality which is a critique of a recent paper in New Scientist (No. 2701), which attempts to reconcile the positions of Einstein and Bohr on Quantum Theory by bringing in that author's purely mathematical ideas on Fractals.

There is also included a rather excellent cartoon by David Shrigley, also poking fun at Fractals!

We will be regularly "trailing" future publications for this Journal on the blog, as well as publishing both current news items, and papers which seem important enough to jump the queue and at least be flagged as "coming soon", if not actually included there and then. A great deal more content has been made ready for future issues of the Journal, which if we continue our plan to bring out a new issue every three weeks, will keep us in copy until early Summer 2011! And this is without counting contributions from our readers (which will no doubt start arriving as soon as it becomes clear that this Journal will persist), bonus papers and special issues on certain themes.
