Why do simple rules produce emergent behavior in Conway's Game of Life? [See video].
A very simple rule-set controls the cellular automata in Conway’s Game of Life. But what emerges is amazing shifts between apparent order and chaos. Is this a visualization of evolution itself just displayed on a vastly simplified level? Whatever it is, isn’t it fascinating to watch?
Feel free to click on other YouTube versions of this game or other cellular automata behaviors and post links to ones you find interesting.
