The Evolution Grid, or EvoGrid is a computer simulation framework for distributed artificial chemistry (AC) supporting computational origins of life (COoL) research. The EvoGrid consists of a number of small experiments running on short time scales pruned by aggressive tree-branching searches supported by random parametric re-seeding and temporal(More)
Developed with optimization and access as its central tenets, the simulation aimed originally to simulate a biologically diverse landscape (initially tropical islands) and simulate the ape inhabitant's cognitive processes. The cognitive simulation relies on two competing 3D mathematical effects to describe two basic cognitive effects - fear and desire. The(More)
