Thank you for visiting the interactor site.

The interactor is a new kind of graph rewriting system embedded in a spatial automaton. It uses combinations of a unique symbol to represent an unlimited number of various interacting forms in space.

These forms are used here to represent schematically an autopoietic self-reproductive individual within its environment. Autopoiesis, or an organism's ability to renew itself, is a common property of the living. This model shows how autopoiesis facilitates self-reproduction.
