And yet, one can't help but wonder a bit. Where did all those things COME from? Are there really so many things, or just a lot of different combinations of a few things? And how come its these PARTICULAR things, and not some other, different things?

"Langton's ant" is one of those things in the world, a fun thing to play with and enjoy (click here and it will appear in a separate window). And we know a bit about where this particular thing came from ... from the mind of a man named John Langton. And what's interesting about that is that "Langton's ant" is a relatively NEW thing in the world, so it serves to show that the particular things we see in the world at any given time are not the ONLY things that can be here.

But "Langton's ant" is even more than that. It gives us a way to think about some of the other questions we were wondering about as well. And, in doing that, it raises some interesting new questions. So ... let's play, and see what we can find.

The first thing to do is to click on the "setup" button. The black field turns greenish white, and a red dot appears in the center. That red dot is the ant. Now click on the "go continuously" button and the ant will move. As it does, some places its been will turn black. Keep an eye on the ant for a while.
