81. Automata - Agents Of Life Within
Introduction to cellular automata and other types including the Game of Life, and their applicability to artificial life, nanotechnology, mind and society.
http://www.calresco.org/automata.htm
##### by Chris Lucas
"On mechanical slavery, on the slavery of the machine,
the future of the world depends."
Oscar Wilde, The Soul of Man Under Socialism, 1895
##### Introduction
In this introduction we will look at some building blocks of organisation, both in terms of life (real and artificial) and in the structure of inorganic materials. We will investigate Cellular Automata and relate these to computers, brains and cells, plus speculate on the future goals of nanotechnology.
##### Understanding Automata
Firstly what exactly is an automaton ? Most people will recognise the word as one applied to a mechanical toy that emulates some apparently living behaviour. Within our field this is generalised to any system that has a finite number of internal states and moves between those states by following specified rules - this is a form of mapping (input to output, similar to a computer program). An automaton is also an agent in ALife terms, although agents can also occur in many other forms. An agent is an entity that can interact with its surroundings and usually changes its own state as a result. If we bring together a collection of such agents and allow them to interact then we have an automata system.
##### Cellular Automata
If we assume automata to be fixed (not mobile) we can equate them with cells in a structure. This structure could be living, molecular, mechanical - any form in fact. This gives us a Cellular Automata (CA), a structure that, whilst static in physical form and space, can exhibit dynamic behaviour in time - emergent order.

85. Java Cyclic Cellular Automata
Cyclic cellular automata. Cyclic cellular automata (CCA) exhibit complex selforganization by iteration of an extremely simple update rule.
http://psoup.math.wisc.edu/java/jcca.html
##### Cyclic Cellular Automata
Cyclic Cellular Automata (CCA) exhibit complex self-organization by iteration of an extremely simple update rule. Using a cyclic color wheel, the state of each cell advances to the next in the cycle if and only if it sees a sufficient representation of that next color within its prescribed local neighborhood. Here 'enough' is measured by a threshold parameter. CCA dynamics are featured extensively on the Kitchen Shelf . This Java-based CCA simulator, with 10 demo experiments, provides an overview of the model's behavior at various representative locations in phase space. The interface is essentially the same as for our companion Greenberg-Hastings Page . Many of the capsule descriptions are linked to explanatory recipes from the Shelf. The Table at the bottom prescribes each experiment's parameters. Click on the number index of an experiment to go to its Table entry, and vice versa, or click on the Table's upper left # symbol to jump to the applet. Try other parameter combinations to develop your predictive understanding of these excitable dynamics, and consult our research paper Threshold-Range Scaling of Excitable Cellular Automata for a systematic study.

##### A Conversation with Will Wright by Celia Pearce
Conducted in Will Wright's office at Maxis, September 5, 2001 CP: What is your philosophy of interactive design? WW: Ooh, a heavy question, a philosophy question. they CP: When you were first working on SimCity , what was going on in the game world at that time? Were you responding to games that were out there, were you wanting something different? Were there things that influenced you at all in the game world or were you just totally in a different mindset? Pinball Construction Set by Bill Budge which was great. He was kind of playing around with the first pre-Mac Lisa interface, which was icon-based. He actually put this in the game, even though it was an Apple 2 game. He kind of emulated what would later become the Mac interface. But it was very easy to use, and you would create pinball sets with it which you could then play with. I thought that was very cool.

##### Feynman Checkerboards
A single FEYNMAN CHECKERBOARD configuration is one of all possible ways for an electron to go from an initial point to a destination point. Choice of a particular single configuration is a RANDOM quantum choice. Feynman's Relativistic Chessboard as an Ising Model, by H. A. Gersch (Int. J. Theor. Phys. 20 (1981) 491), shows that the (1+1)-dimensional Feynman Checkerboard, which describes the (1+1)-dimensional Dirac equation , is equivalent to the 1-dimensional Ising model and is related to Bernoulli Schemes, Julia Sets, and Chebyshev Polynomials The Feynman Checkerboard for an electron in 1+1 dimensional spacetime can be represented as a 1-dimensional Cellular Automaton evolving in 1 time dimension. The initial state is a point in the t=0 initial time, the initial location of the electron in 1-dimensional space. Each possible state at time t=N is a point locating the electron on the spatial line at t=N. All possible paths from the initial state at t=0 to the state at t=N are summed ( the Quantum Sum Over Histories 2 +/- sqrt(2 +/- sqrt(2 +/- sqrt(2 +/- ... ))) Such sequences of length M are the zeroes of the Chebyshev polynomials of degree 2^M.

"What cannot be programmed, cannot be physics."
E. Fredkin
Is it possible to describe the whole Universe as a computer program? What is the algorithm that runs our Universe? According to the theory of Digital Physics, information is more fundamental than matter and energy; time and space are discrete, and laws of physics are deterministic. The solution of the problem itself lies somewhere within a class of abstract mathematical models for computation known as "cellular automata"...

Notes for Chapter 2: The Crucial Experiment
Section: Why These Discoveries Were Not Made Before
Page
History of cellular automata. Despite their very simple construction, nothing like general cellular automata appear to have been considered before about the 1950s. Yet in the 1950s - inspired in various ways by the advent of electronic computers - several different kinds of systems equivalent to cellular automata were independently introduced. A variety of precursors can be identified. Operations on sequences of digits had been used since antiquity in doing arithmetic. Finite difference approximations to differential equations began to emerge in the early 1900s and were fairly well known by the 1930s. And Turing machines invented in 1936 were based on thinking about arbitrary operations on sequences of discrete elements. (Notions in physics like the Ising model do not appear to have had a direct influence.)
The best-known way in which cellular automata were introduced (and which eventually led to their name) was through work by John von Neumann in trying to develop an abstract model of self-reproduction in biology - a topic which had emerged from investigations in cybernetics. Around 1947 - perhaps based on chemical engineering - von Neumann began by thinking about models based on 3D factories described by partial differential equations. Soon he changed to thinking about robotics and imagined perhaps implementing an example using a toy construction set. By analogy to electronic circuit layouts he realized however that 2D should be enough. And following a 1951 suggestion from

98. The Cellular Automata Simulation System
A compiler for the Cellang cellular automata programming language, along with the corresponding documentation, viewer, and various tools; by J Dana Eckart.

##### The Cellular Automata Simulation System
The system consists of a compiler for the Cellang cellular automata programming language, along with the corresponding documentation, viewer, and various tools. Cellang has been undergoing refinement for the last several years, with corresponding upgrades to the compiler. Postscript versions of the tutorial and language reference manual are available for those wanting more detailed information. The most important distinguishing features of Cellang , include support for:
Cellular Automata
• named constants, including constant arrays with values read in from a file;
• any number of dimensions;
• compile time specification of each dimension's size;
• cell neighborhoods of any size (though bounded at compile time) and shape;
• positional and time dependent neighborhoods;
• associating multiple values (fields), including arrays, with each cell;
• associating a potentially unbounded number of mobile agents [ Agents are mobile entities based on a mechanism of the same name in the Creatures system, developed by Ian Stephenson (ian@ohm.york.ac.uk).] with each cell; and
• local interactions only, since it is impossible to construct automata that contain any global control or references to global variables.
