Artificial Life and Intelligence - Picos

This is an exploration of a conceptual A-Life model I developed.  It's a simplified version of the model, building off of concepts like those of Alan Turing (Turing machine) and Chris Langton (Langton's ant).  The 11 components included in this model are 1) Unique selves, 2) Game play operation, 3) Relational connections, 4) Finite resources, 5) Conservation of resources (1st law of thermodynamics), 6) Dissipation of energy (2nd law of thermodynamics), 7) Metabolism, 8) Random selection within a characteristic range, 9) Reproduction, 10) Self contained rule instruction, and 11) Mutation.
