Certain model of ACE also gives very nice fractals.
The interest of ACE is to be able to demonstrate that starting from simple principles one can arrive at complex structures obeying emerging laws, which confirms the notion of totality greater than the sum of the elements which compose it.
On the other hand, starting from a deterministic mode we can obtain chaotic phenomena and vice versa, which confirms in passing the vision of certain cosmogonies (Kaos / Cosmos).
This also joins the work ofAlex Wissner-Gross on the intelligence that it intrinsically links to the increase in entropy.
The anthropotechnical system can thus be understood as a non-local super-intelligence using its agents and structures for the construction of a whole beyond us ... naturalism requires nothing to say, quite the contrary, that this tendency is favorable to us, in reality is even the opposite ...
We would be like ants contaminated by the fungus cordyceps, exponential economism / technologism infecting our cognitive systems to make us accomplish a disastrous "fate *".
* By excluding any form of finalism of course, but which subjectively seems to us as such.
Furthermore if we add the 3 other forces, we touch on the whole complexity of the universe including the emergence of consciousness which probably came from a single simple microscopic law.
We are in the emergence of a complexity greater than the sum of the elements below. The model of elementary automata confirms this astonishing phenomenon in binary mode, but which is certainly a serious explanation for the emergence of life from inert elements.
Theory of evolution, its often misunderstood aspects, some curiosities, and even a computer simulation of the evolution of artificial life!
