Default 'Ok!' This is scary... [Many Pics]

Ok well this afternoon I was wasting a bit more of my time on nonlinear mathmatics and came across somthing in the book about 'The Game of Life' after a quick search on the web;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conway's_Game_of_Life

...and then following a download link (it's safe);

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/gol...3&big_mirror=0

I had a program to unzip and mess about with.

The idea behind the 'Game of Life' is to emulate (to a lesser degree) the way microbes exist it does this through a set of rules;

1. Any live cell with fewer than two live neighbours dies, as if by loneliness.
2. Any live cell with more than three live neighbours dies, as if by overcrowding.
3. Any live cell with two or three live neighbours lives, unchanged, to the next generation.
4. Any dead cell with exactly three live neighbours comes to life.

So I start with some random squiggles, my name, a few equations and then;

















...and then I wrote;



I'm scared as to how it does this with certian words.

You imply that when you write OK (and I did it exactly the same squares as you did) that it will come out with eight separate OK's, but it doesn't...

Edit: But it does when you use the template... how bizarre.

No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

Its very simplified modeling of microbe reproductions and life. in essence, its a set of rules that dettermine how the squares change from white to black to white and such. That particular pattern, OK!, replicates itself over a series of generations.

Well the fact that it iterates and writes the word perfectly sometime in the future and multiple times after descending into chaos after the first few iterations.

I understand it's built on rules, but if I write a word very big or thick it doesn't work right and if the word is too complex it doesn't do it correctly, but then you can make some very complex patterns repeat...

Try BOB or 1 + 1 = 2 or A MAN A PLAN A CANAL PANAMA;



Spaces don't seem to affect it nor do symbol shapes...I must say; that's funny.
