i think,
I could of course be wrong though....

That is something that happens to other people.

I have heard about it before, tried to find it....
but sheesh... it was a lot of effort for no gain at all... so I gave up :cry:

Perhaps one day I'll get the urge to try again. But until then...

life



<games> The first popular cellular automata based
artificial life "game". Life was invented by British
mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970 and was first
introduced publicly in "Scientific American" later that year.

Conway first devised what he called "The Game of Life" and
"ran" it using plates placed on floor tiles in his house.
Because of he ran out of floor space and kept stepping on the
plates, he later moved to doing it on paper or on a
checkerboard, and then moved to running Life as a computer
program on a PDP-7. That first implementation of Life as a
computer program was written by M. J. T. Guy and
S. R. Bourne (the author of Unix's Bourne shell).

Life uses a rectangular grid of binary (live or dead) cells
each of which is updated at each step according to the
previous state of its eight neighbours as follows: a live cell
with less than two, or more than three, live neighbours dies.
A dead cell with exactly three neighbours becomes alive.
Other cells do not change.

While the rules are fairly simple, the patterns that can arise
are of a complexity resembling that of organic systems -- hence
the name "Life".

Many hackers pass through a stage of fascination with Life,
and hackers at various places contributed heavily to the
mathematical analysis of this game (most notably Bill Gosper
at MIT, who even implemented Life in TECO!; see
Gosperism). When a hacker mentions "life", he is more
likely to mean this game than the magazine, the breakfast
cereal, the 1950s-era board game or the human state of
existence.

life

n. 1. A cellular-automata game invented by John Horton
Conway and first introduced publicly by Martin Gardner ("Scientific
American", October 1970); the game's popularity had to wait a few
years for computers on which it could reasonably be played, as it's
no fun to simulate the cells by hand. Many hackers pass through a
stage of fascination with it, and hackers at various places
contributed heavily to the mathematical analysis of this game (most
notably Bill Gosper at MIT, who even implemented life in TECO!;
see Gosperism). When a hacker mentions `life', he is much more
likely to mean this game than the magazine, the breakfast cereal, or

life

generally of physical life (Gen. 2:7; Luke 16:25, etc.); also used figuratively
(1) for immortality (Heb. 7:16); (2) conduct or manner of life (Rom. 6:4); (3)
spiritual life or salvation (John 3:16, 17, 18, 36); (4) eternal life (Matt.
19:16, 17; John 3:15); of God and Christ as the absolute source and cause of
all life (John 1:4; 5:26, 39; 11:25; 12:50).
