Conway’s Game of Life: Programmable Computer

A programmable computer, built using the simple rules of Conway’s Game of Life, computing the Fibonacci series. Redstone computing in Minecraft is one thing, but this is just fantastic. Now imagine scaling this computer up to the point it could run Conway’s Game of Life as a standalone executable, and then rebuilding the computer in that newly emulated environment, and so on and so on… forget turtles, it’s Conway’s Game of Life all the way down.

Igor Stravinsky – The Rite of Spring (1913)

So rad. The closest approximation of the original 1913 premiere that caused a near riot (accounts vary) because too many minds were being blown in the audience, or the two factions of the audience (traditionalists vs. progressives) were all twizted, or some other reasons. Look it up yourself. Also the origin of the name of the ripping Rites of Spring. Blah blah blah. I give this blog a 2.7 Pizzas out of 5 Soy Nuggets.
