It looks absolutely amazing, but more than that, the theory behind it, as described by this developer, is both technologically and philosophically fascinating. To not build a merely finite virtual universe, but instead, to set in motion the laws by which an infinite virtual universe is governed with mathematical theory and lines of code? If everything that this man says is accurate, then he and his team are in actual fact playing virtual gods, and that is stunningly interesting. That is some Star Ocean: Til the End of Time-level shit right there. Not that I think that this program is sophisticated enough to spontaneously generate sentient life, but it may be a gradient towards that idea. Artificial evolution seems a step in an interesting new route towards artificial intelligence.
On the other hand, this might also be some elaborate PR bullshit that will collapse like the promises of Peter Molyneux. Hard to say.
I hope its legitimate. What a fascinating new accomplishment for humanity: the creation of an artificial, infinite universe. I’d love to play it.
