The G System Philosopher's Corner



This book collects the philosophical musings of diverse contributors on the theme of evolution. The way this project is implemented, particularly the actual simulation, will make statements and assumptions about how evolution works. It is important for contributors and interested parties to be able to understand and challenge these. As this project is for both scientific and amusement purposes, this book is also an end in itself.
