Roger Banks' Cellular Automata (AI Film #5)
Simulations similar to the Game of Life on a computer screen. The first segment shows a self-multiplying elephant (initial conditions that look like an elephant and eventually lead to four identical elephants). The rest of the long segment has some kind of a 'gun' mechanism that places individual dots to its right on the way to spelling out MIT, but the video ends before the task is completed.
