Simulating Particle Life

  • เผยแพร่เมื่อ 4 พ.ค. 2024
  • Particle Life is a fascinating simulation model that showcases emergent behavior arising from simple rules. Inspired by Jeffrey Ventrella's "Clusters" ( ventrella.com/Clusters ). This simulation resembles real-life organisms, demonstrating that emergent behavior doesn’t require complex processes.

    It would be interesting to see particles be able to change into other particles when certain conditions are met, such as 2 red particles changing into a green for instance, or after a set amount of time.

  • @YLLPal
    @YLLPal 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +3

    You could possibly make a kind of molecular behaviour by giving them properties which come into effect when they are "bonded" to another particle. A bond would be defined as a certain level of force interaction between 2 particles for at least x seconds (1N over 0.5 seconds bonds them until it stops or drops to 0).
    Say when you have a structure made of reds and blues, it changes some attraction properties, or even adds some interaction properties with other pairings.

    You could, if more than 20 particles are clumped together. Change their value so that the different colors form “covalent bonds” with other particles of that color within the clump (which would just be like some string like code so they can’t wander off)
    Then you get molecules and it can get a little more complicated. You could also have some structures which you know are useful like bonds which two poles be forms that can form easily. If you know it can form in real life due to reactions it should be allowed to make it form in the simulation. Life could get more complex that way

      @@Smiley_404 It seems like the "cell" itself was barely holding itself together, but due to the intense charge of the "membrane" attracting to the "nucleus" (via the bridging orange particles that attract both the "membrane" and "nucleus), it remained stable. Once the "cell" got a hold of more cyan particles (those that make up the "nucleus") the force overwhelmed that of the "membrane" and it violently exploded. From this, the "membrane" and "bridge" particles formed new, smaller "cells", which quickly picked up a "nucleus" of a few cyan particles.
      This system is unbelievably impressive, notice how the daughters (terminating the use of quotation marks for convenience) without a nucleus of cyan particles form far more fluid structures, as the nucleus was a necessity for a proper membrane to form. Speaking of the membrane, the membrane appears perfectly formed to allow for fission of the cell. At large sizes (when the cell would want to divide), it forms slits that easily allow cyan particles into the nucleus, until the force overpowers the membrane and the cell divides.
      The life cycle of this structure of particles works specifically to grow in size, until it is too large, then divide. This, however, is similar to a cell being struck by an external structure that forcefully divides it. The major difference here is how the cell itself works to allow for this.
      The only issue with this cell is its inability to defend itself, despite how impressive its abilities of fission are, most or all of the offspring die before maturity (in which it divides).

    This reminds me of the hypothesis of fine-tuned universe.

    I think one of the limiting factors of this simulation is the lack of collisions. As you have said, you have added a repulsion for when two particles get too close. Yet, many times, once there is a big enough number of particles attracting each other they seem to reach a sort of "size limit" from which the addition of particles will only make the mass of particles denser and not bigger. This, seems to greatly limit the size and complexity of the "organisms" that emerge. Probably the addition of actual collisions would suppose a significant strain on the GPU but I think it might pay off. Thank you so much. Loved the video.

    I liked the video because it was interesting mathematically, however, it still doesn't explain the origin of life but only that information tends to cluster whenever it's possible/favourable, or that pattern emerges when things are viewed from a larger scale (Ramsey). The process behind the formation of the earliest life is way more complex than what you presented since a lot of things need to be just right.

    While I must admit that this is a very interesting concept, and that It does appear to simulate life, you forgot a crucial detail about life. You see, just because they are able to move and are also able to create complex formations, they are unable to act of their own accord. The particles in this video are only moving simply based on the laws of attraction and repulsion. For example, if I were to take a bunch of north pole and south pole magnets, while they could repel and attract each other to form complex structures, they are unable to move and act of their own accord. The same problem would occur, even if there were a dozen different types of magnetic poles.
    On the contrary, life is able to move independent of outside forces. While some organisms have simple jobs that only require them to do a certain number of tasks, others are able to think for themselves and choose where they want to go, regardless of the forces of attraction and repulsion.
    So, I ask you this one simple question. How do these particles evolve into complex organisms that are able to move independently of each other? I fail to see how these structures are able to produce a T-Rex that is able to think for itself even if they had a billion years to do it.

    • @bmatt2626
      @bmatt2626 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

      I think "external forces" is inaccurate. Your atoms are pulling on the Earth while it pulls on you. Your atoms are affecting a magnet while it's affecting you. I think there is no real internal vs external distinction, it's all the same field, and you can algebra the + / - signs to describe it from the perspective of this or that object. But that's an arbitrary choice, and exactly the same level of complexity will emerge from exactly the same level of simplicity, regardless of which side you put all the minus signs in your conceptual representation of whatever nature is actually doing.

Of course it's not "real life", but understanding how "fake life" emerges from simple rules provides conceptual frameworks for people to investigate "real life". Playing with LEGOs isn't building skyscrapers, but if you ask 2 kids to analyze a skyscraper, the one who played with LEGOs will notice different things, ask different questions.
      These are _models_ of _aspects_ of a thing, and in *2D*, which of course you can't get "real life" out of anyway, because all the twisting and folding of real particle configurations allows for waaay more complexity.

    This is my attempt to catalog all the “lifeforms” that can evolve here. There are three main categories of life, which I will classify as Floaters, Coasters and Absorbers. Floaters are the simplest type of lifeform, being stationary creatures that just consist of one or two types of cells. These seem to be most common in simulations with low particle color counts. Species include 3:21 Flavum Botrus and 3:54 Red Centrum. Floaters do not necessarily have to be simple however, as the species Longa Forma demonstrates at 14:15. Coasters are species that revolve around being very fast, being able to speed across the map rapidly. These are surprisingly durable, being able to reform after an impact fairly easily. These can vary in speed, from being only moderately fast, like the species Neo Corpus at 4:13, or very fast, or the species family Purpura Caput at 6:35. Finally we have predators, which revolve around feeding on members of its own kind, as other prey species tend to destroy them. These can either be stationary or moving, as long as they can effectively catch prey and reform it into a part of itself. The species include Rubrum Luna at 11:02 and its ambush predator variant at 11:08 at the bottom of the simulation. My favorite species was the Navigare Navis at 10:45, a species of Coaster with a unique sail-shaped appearance. (God I spent way too long doing this lol)
