After extinction of us, what will remain from us?
Are we going to able to create a new kind of specie?
Famoust mathematician Conway has an answer for this:
Even we can not create a new specie, we can leave a living mathematical formula.
Conway’s Game of Life’s rules are so simple:
For a space that is ‘populated’:
- Each cell with one or no neighbors dies, as if by solitude.
- Each cell with four or more neighbors dies, as if by overpopulation.
- Each cell with two or three neighbors survives.
For a space that is ’empty’ or ‘unpopulated’
- Each cell with three neighbors becomes populated.
These simple rules can “simulate” a living colony (or multiple colonies movement)
Conway’s Game of Life is not a “typical computer game”. It is a “cellular automation” which is invented by Mathematician John Conway.
I always wanted to simulate John Conway’s Game of Life. Though using HTML5 technologies is a great way to simulate John Conway’s Game of Life.
