Cellular Automa generate images row by row, with the state of cells in each consecutive row dependant on the states of the three cells directly above it. Different Rule-Sets (ranging from 0-255) change what states constitute a cell being "dead or alive," and lead to different patterns. Some patterns are pretty cool (like the ones to the right), while others (rule 3 for example) are quite boring.
