So, the cool "emergent behaviours" of rules that arise naturally are actually pretty boring.

Usually, this is just in the form of a few common naturally occuring patterns. In any case, it doesn't feel like there's more natural complexity than what's "put into the rule" already. The patterns don't really meaningfully interact much on their own unless put in very specific contexts. Everything's fragile and uninteresting, effectively.

Has anyone gotten any "non-fragile" patterns that interact naturally in a complex way and make self-forming higher order structures which can't exactly be classified as "yet another one of the fundamental patterns that forms in this rule" yet?
We know what you did.
