working on ideas for a new family of cellular automata. i want to do systems which read relative, rather than absolute, neighbor states as i think this would result in some interesting and beautiful organic behavior.
@lorenschmidt interesting thought
@lorenschmidt See also continuous cellular automata e.g. Wolfram's: https://www.wolframscience.com/nks/p156--continuous-cellular-automata/ note how one rule proposed relies on the average of the existing cell and its neighbours, which is a relative measure
