Lenia (from Latin lenis, “smooth”) is a cellular automaton, like Conway’s Game of Life, but with continuous states and continuous space-time. It supports an unexpected (bio)diversity of persistent life forms, each possesses idiosyncratic anatomy and physiology, and exhibits a wide range of behaviors. More than 300 species have been identified, many discovered using human-based evolutionary algorithm.
Lenia is a 2D cellular automata with continuous space, time and states. It produces a huge variety of interesting life forms.
Fastest version, minimalist layout. Now with GPU support! (Needs Python3 and various libraries)
Fast version, great tools for statistical analysis. (Needs purchased copy of Matlab)
The original program, slow but with most features.
