3.2.2. Brain-less and powered creatures


In this section, we will still be dealing with "brain-less" agents, i.e. agents in which no control is coming from the "brain" or control program.

Despite their simplicity, the agents will demonstrate suprising behavioral diversity and responses to disturbances.
