Cellular Automaton Shell

© Dan McCabe

 

A geeky computer joke. This shell is nature's way of exploring cellular automata :).

 

A cellular automaton is a mathematical technique that evolves a collection of data using very simple rules. This shell exhibits that sort of evolution along its outer surface.

 

In the computer world, a shell is a program that accepts a persons inputs (usually by typing commands) and then spits out the results.
