[REBOL] Re: Artificial Life in Rebol ?

From: rebolek:seznam:cz at: 4-Jan-2003 17:25

Hello Oldes, well overstating... it was just one of the reasons and really not the most important. It's like two czech sequnces (there were only two of them). The GUI's reworked now so I think it's closed chapter. But I want to say something else. You think that it's not fair that some cells are 'smarter' and can do more 'actions' in one event. Look at real world. You have snails and gepards, gepards are times faster than snails and is that fair? I think yes. Some 'creatures' are more advanced than the others, people have brains and they can do more things than both snails and gepards. And is that fair? I think that our simulation is not like Conway's life where no cells really exist, they're just result of some basic rules and you can say that it's not fair that some configuration can lead to big number of cells (where did the cells get from? From - nothing???) Our cells are individuals, they have their own rules like snails and gepards and people. Yes, the code is messy and there is not very much different kinds of cells. But there was discussion about artificial life on the ML so I thought it's good idea to show the work already done. Yes, it needs improvements but we both know that it's not number one on our priority list ;) so why not to release it (you know, hard drives can crash so at least it's archived somewhere ;) have good time, oldes, bye, bolek RebOldes wrote:
