This automaton is of particular interest because it produces complex, seemingly random patterns from simple, well-defined rules. Wolfram (A New Kind of Science) believes that cellular automata are the key to understanding how simple rules produce complex structures and behaviour in nature. A pattern resembling Rule 30 appears on the shell of the widespread cone snail species Conus…

Cone snail anatomy  1) Proboscis. The proboscis is the cone snail’s hunting tool. Venom is injected into prey by a harpoon loaded into this long thin tube. The proboscis can extend longer than twice the size of the snail.     2) Siphon. The snail’s siphon is similar to a nose. It is a long extendable tube that can detect its prey in the surrounding waters. It also directs water to the gills to help with respiration.     5) Foot - A long muscular foot extends to allow the snail to ...
