Example text

Ray, the developer of Tierra, contends, “There is no connection between the Tierran world and the real physical world. I have created a virtual universe that is self-contained” (Ray, 1996, p. 12). It may be argued that computers can only do what their programs enable them to do but cannot generate mutations or novel animal behavior. However, it is now claimed that, if sufficiently powerful, computers are unpredictable. Langton writes, “It is impossible to determine any non-trivial property of the future behavior of a sufficiently powerful computer from a mere inspection of its program and its initial state.

In group selection, groups compete with other groups, just as in individual selection, individuals in a group compete with each other. In The Origin, Darwin (1859) says that he uses the term struggle for existence to encompass two different types of situations. Two dogs may fight with each other over a bone, but two plants may each struggle against the drought. Individual selection will favor the stronger dog in the first case, but it also will favor the stronger plant in the second. Natural selection does not have to involve individuals actively interfering with each other.
