http://www.math.com/students/wonders/life/life.html After reading this article, I thought it would be a good research project to do for a science competition I'm planning on entering. Is it something worth spending a year researching on? The thing that intrigues me is the possibility of applying it to our understanding of this question: "why is the universe disorderly". Am I correct to say that without disorder, there can be no "improvements" (by improvements, I mean in terms of human affairs)? Why is it impossible to have an orderly universe? Just what do we mean by "order"?
