The CA are controlled by the following buttons:
Shorter: Makes CA shorter.
Longer: Makes CA longer.
Plant CA-2: CA-2 is planted,
The experiment starts with an isolated CA-2.which
gradually matures and starts cycling through its 46 states. When CA-2
attains state = 1 it plants a CA-1 zygote which moves downward until
it interacts with CA-2 whose structure changes. It moves upward to
its new attractor where both CA cycle through their states. CA-2
does not affect CA-1. Now replant CA-2. CA-1 continues to move up
or down. When CA-2 matures and attains state = 1 it replants a CA-1
zygote and so on.
The applet depicts CA behavior. Initially CA-2 is isolated and does not interact with the environment. By itself CA-2 cannot move. When it decides to change its residence it plants a CA-1 zygote which assists CA-2 in its endeavor.
