Runs Continuously, Never Repeats
Automata Studies explores the concept of 'pattern from process', The title originates from a well known text that includes essays by Claude Shannon, vonNeuman, Klenne, and a young Marvin Minsky that discuss some of the early goals of computer science including the ways that varying processes may lead to 'intelligence'. A different process runs in each of the six sections of Automata Studies creating very different patterns.
