More information:
This program demonstrates a kind of cellular activity. The cells live and die according to a set of rules:
  1. If there are less than 2 cells around a cell it'll die.
  2. If there are more than 3 cells around it, it'll die also.
  3. If there are exactly 3 cells around a blank, a new cell is born.
  4. After 10 cycles a cell dies.
Have a go at creating patterns and watching them grow! It is possible to create sustaining life cycles that repeat.
