George William Kelly wrote this collection of eight childrenÂ´s stories over the lifetime of his daughter, Georgette. He named the heroines after her. By the time he published the collection, Georgette had reached the age of "sweet sixteen." Consequently, some of the stories aim at picture book readers and some at teenage readers. They reflect GeorgetteÂ´s growing older and older. The stories range from how Santa Christina (Mrs. Santa Claus) saved Christmas by helping Santa Claus deliver the Christmas toys, to how Georgette discovered there are 32 tooth pixies instead of one tooth fairy, to how GeorgetteÂ´s family developed the idea of a "grand unified theory of the universe" from apples in their kitchen fruit bowl. As a gift for GeorgetteÂ´s sixteenth birthday, Kelly combined his eight favorite stories into a print-on-demand paperback book (and an e-book) published by the Xlibris Corp. Like many childrenÂ´s books, this one offers food for thought to adults as well as to children. It has no illustrations, but the author believes children will draw their own pictures. He hopes that some of the stories may be republished later as individual picture books.
GeorgetteÂ´s Apple Bivortex Theory of Everything. "This story presents a model that shows how everything in the universe evolves," Kelly says. "Modern scientists have searched and searched for this model but have failed to see it. Great scientists like Rene Descartes, Isaac Newton, Michael Faraday, James Clark Maxwell, Max Planck, Albert Einstein, and Niels Bohr circled close around this model, but even those giants failed to see it."
GeorgetteÂ´s bivortex theory evolved over sixteen years. Georgette, her Mommy, and her Daddy were seeking one, single answer to a young girlÂ´s unending questions about everything. Their amateur, commonsense approach led them further and further into the realms of astronomy, cosmology, mathematics, physics, and the history of science. Although they could not speak the various scientific "dialects," they could comprehend general scientific speculation about the universe. They could also ponder the detailed pictures of the universe provided by space-age astronomy. Just as a small child saw the real truth in the old fairy tale about the emperorÂ´s new clothes, so GeorgetteÂ´s scientifically unsophisticated family saw in the apple-like shapes of certain space photographs a new model for a theory of everything: a grand unified theory of the universe. As far as the family knows, this model never occurred to the scientists who have striven to harmonize red shifts, the Big Bang, the expanding universe, black holes, wormholes, gravity, electromagetism, curved space, strings, branes, quantum, matter, antimatter, dark matter, wimps, strong nuclear force, weak nuclear force, Bose-Einstein condensates, great walls, chaos theory, etc.
GeorgetteÂ´s bivortex model takes the shape of an apple in the center of a large cloud of particles. It begins when two or more particles eddy around each other and form a tube. This rotating tube of particles sucks more and more cloud particles down the vortex at each end of the tube. The opposing helical streams of particles collide at the tubeÂ´s center. The particles split, ricochet, and radiate outward to form an equatorial bulge and equatorial disk. Nearly all these particles are drawn back eventually toward the rotating tube. They rise in arched pathways northward and southward from the equatorial bulge and disk. Some return quickly to the walls of the tube. Others return leisurely via either the north pole vortex or the south pole vortex. The particles recycle along the lines of the bivortex field, just as iron filings follow the lines of a magnetÂ´s electromagnetic field. At the extreme circumference of the disk, some particles leave the system altogether and radiate into space. Meanwhile, some particles pass the tubeÂ´s center-point and follow the tubeÂ´s axis in opposite directions toward the north and south poles, emerging as powerful bipolar jets. At the tips of the bipolar jets some particles radiate into space. Others fall back into the vortexes and recycle. The original large cloud of particles does not immediately shrink to the size of the "apple." It constitutes a huge bivortex halo around the bivortex apple. Some incipient "planets" remain in the disk to grow by accretion, while others spiral along the bivortex field lines through the halo, eventually recycling into the vortexes.
The apple bivortex model can apply equally to subatomic particles, to stars, to galaxies, and to universes. In their analysis, within this childrenÂ´s story, the Kelly family uses the bivortex model to offer a novel explanation of how galaxies evolve into their various known types, such as elliptical galaxies, barred galaxies, and spiral galaxies. They ingeniously suggest that the bivortex model solves the longstanding mystery of what causes sunspots, sunspot cycles, and solar coronal holes. They also say that the bivortex model raises interesting questions about red shifts, black holes, and the concept of an expanding universe.
Hi Q Turtle. The story of Hi Q Turtle resembles the story of Pinocchio. When Pinocchio told a lie, his nose got longer. When someone complimented Hi Q Turtle, his head got bigger.
Georgette & The Pesky Housefly. Do you think a pesky housefly could paint Georgette green? Or burn GeorgetteÂ´s pancakes? Or send Georgette to the hospital? You wouldnÂ´t think so, but the answer is yes if the pesky housefly can start a chain of events that causes something to happen. The pesky housefly manages to do this ten times in this story.
Santa Christina and Her Sled Dogs. When Santa Claus said that the job of delivering Christmas toys had become too big for him and announced that he was quitting, Santa Christina (Mrs. Santa Claus) came to the rescue. She got a team of seven sled dogs and asked the elves to build her a dog sled. In a trial race around the Arctic Circle, Santa Christina and her sled dogs tied with Santa Claus and his reindeer. Since then Santa Christina and Santa Claus have each delivered half of the toys, and neither is tired. Georgette discovered this secret when she surprised Santa Christina at GeorgetteÂ´s house on Christmas Eve.
Lavender Angel & The Halloween Spirits. Lavender Angel liked graveyards. She got permission to fly down from Heaven and visit graveyards whenever she wanted. She imagined talking with the people who lay at rest beneath the gravestones. Once upon an All Hallows Eve she was surrounded by nighttime animals who talked to her with the voices of spirits. They persuaded her to unlock the Doomsday Door in one corner of the cemetery with her skeleton key. Monsters and ghosts and spirits swarmed out and screamed "Boo!" Lavender Angel gave them candy. That was the beginning of Halloween.
Georgette & The Tooth Pixies. Georgette wanted to see what the Tooth Fairy looked like. She tossed three pennies into three wishing wells. Each time she made a wish to see the Tooth Fairy. When GeorgetteÂ´s first baby tooth fell out, she put the tooth under her pillow and hoped her wish would come true. The wish came true, but it was not the Tooth Fairy she had expected. It was three little people who said they were Tooth Pixies. There was one for each wish she had made. They did a little tap dance and sang a little song. Toothbrushes dangled from their jump suits. They wore pointed hats with plumes of dental floss. Each carried a wand topped by an orb stuck full of toothpicks. They had one deep pocket for carrying baby teeth and another deep pocket for money to leave under pillows. They said there were 32 Tooth Pixies in all, who traveled all over the world by waving their toothpick wands.
