Order to Chaos to Order

The familiar period doubling bifurcation which leads to chaos, can work simultaneously in both directions. Where period halving occurs, leading to stability. Apparently variants of the MURALI LAKSHMANAN CHUA CIRCUIT exhibit behaviour like this too (but with the ordered regions at either end of the graph and the chaotic region in the middle).





Morphology Generations

Different generations of growth are shown in different colours: 1.red, 2.purple, 3. blue, 4. green, 4. white, 6.black. as the older generations decay, the new growth can inhabit previously inhabited space in a new way

This variation introduces decay into the system, allowing the machines to reconstruct the interior of the system. these sections show the emergent changing agglomerations

Screen Grabs from today

Here is a sample of the evolution of the code today


this reads from bottom right to top left. (thanks Photoshop script, for your flexibility!)

Machine precedent

The honeypot ant constantly overeats resulting in an enlarged abdomen filled with honey. The machine for my project dragging around a large abdomen sack filled with industrial waste which it regurgitates and melts before extruding it from an orifice in the end of its single long arm.

Machine Behaviour

This shows the range of arced movement of the extrusion arm.
