Links to a site about boids, "artificial life" simulations of flocking birds. I'm not sure if boids has much to do with real flocks of birds. It is, however, a nice example of "rule as the sum of rulelessness."

The page for the mock class I taught at the College of the Atlantic. (The topic was dimension and fractals, not "rule as the sum of rulelessness.)"
