morphic cell systems, same as before except without memory (using two-color ECA rules only); cells in each system start out following one of two possible rules (the last systems have four possible rules for each cell); a cell takes on its left neighbor's cell if its value is the same as the left neighbor but different that the cell on its right, and takes on its right neighbor's animal if the cell agrees with the right neighbor but not the left

morphic cells using ant rules; heterogenous systems where each cell starts out as one of four possible animals; cell takes left neighbor's animal if the sum of the ant input neighborhood is 1, takes right neighbor's animal if the sum of the ant neighborhood cells is 5

heterogenous using crow rules with two possible initial animal values for each cell; cells take left neighbor if they agree with left neighbor and not right neighbor, etc.; the two possible initial animal values are always inverse rules (if one is 00110, the other is 11001)

These systems use ant rules, are morphic, take their right neighbor's animal if the cell agrees with only the right neighbor. etc.

Unlike some earlier systems, though, there's more variety in the animals the cells are initialized with...instead of each cell starting out as one of a set of two or four animals, as is the case for some of the systems previously posted to this thread, the cells in these systems are picked "randomly" from the entire set of possible animals. So, in all likelihood, each cell in these systems starts out with a different animal than the others.

Through time, then, based on the data in the system, the animals tend to compete with each other, selecting themselves down to a smaller set of animal functions. Maybe they're not competing, but the systems tend, at least, to evolve toward states containing fewer overall animals.

Could our universe be composed of elementary building blocks that are fickle? Could one of our particles be following one rule at one time and another at a different time? (A preceeding question is: at the most fundamental level, is our universe composed of elements that are homogenous, or are there different types of parts operating down there?) (I realize there may be accepted scientific theories that answer these questions...I'm questioning here purely from a CA-centric perspective.)
