In waterfalls energy is pouring down as in cellular automata.
Last summer I visited the Wells Gray Park in British Columbia, where the Murtle River plunges 141 m into Helmckens Canyon. Helmckens Falls is considered by many to be among the most impressive in North America. The power of the falling water is equal to the power of about 20,000 horses. The entire spectacle is such an enthralling one, that you could spend considerable time watching the whitened river, as it shoots down and down. I became fascinated more and more because I did not see a continuum of falling water, but structures familiar to me from "A New Kind of Science", triangles pouring down, branching, deintegrating, and unifying again. Does anybody know a modelling of a waterfall from this point of view?
