The CA is controlled by the following buttons:
Start: CA are planted.
Hide CA-1 Hide CA-2
Out CA-1+: raise output rate Out CA-1-: reduce output rate Out CA-2+: raise output rate Out CA-2-: reduce output rate
Infection: Infect CA-1
Spectrum: Changes CA coloring.
Input rates Output rates.
This experiment is the same as the previous one. Click on Start and then Hide CA-1. Click on Spectrum: The colors of the zero bits forms a spectrum. The structure which consists of bits 1 and 2, slides backwards over the spectrum. All states except the first are memory states, only the first or present state is active. Each spectrum color represents a memory of an event which the CA experienced several time units ago.
Memory is a process
This CA illustrates that our memory is an ongoing process. The first state represents the present and the memory states, the past. As structure slides from present to past. it becomes blurred and finally disappears. Previously it was shown that every process generates its own time. This experiment illustrates that each process has its own present and past. And since time, present and past are relative, future cannot be foreseen. It is meaningless.
The future is implemented
in the system whose WOB (Wisdom of the
Body ) knows how to handle any future event. WOB anticipates
the future. Throughout evolution organisms learned how to cope
with all kinds of threat, and this knowledge (WOB) was inherited
by their progeny.
Since memory fades away it has to be continually refreshed. Further reading Alzheimers’s disease.
You may now repeat the previous experiment:
Click on Start.
Two zygotes are planted and their growth is synchronized. As long
as synchronized both CA grow and proliferate, yet when desynchronized,
CA-1 will stop advancing to the next state (=stop its clock)
until regaining synchronization.. In order to desynchronize the
CA click on Infection and if necessary Hide CA-2.
CA-1 freezes its clock (stops advancing to the next state) and
waits until its state matches that of CA-2. Synchronization requires
that both states will be followed by the same states. When cycling
through its 46 states, the CA may encounter one state several
times. In order that this state be suitable for synchronization,
the subsequent states in both CA have to be the same. CA-1 will
thus cycle and freeze until such a state is found.
