Planet LRR

Planet LRR.

A beautiful world or amazing complexity.

Created using a simple process, repeated 2,000,000 times.

How is such complexity generated by such a simple process? Is our universe the result of a very simple rule, repeated again and again trillions of times?

Creating Planet LRR

The process is known to mathematicians as a Left-Right-Right turmite:

1. Start with a blank space and select a starting square.
2. If the color of the square is color #1, make it color #2, turn left and move one square forward.
3. If the color of the square is color #2, make it color #3, turn right and move one square forward.
4. If the color of the square is color #3, make it color #1, turn right and move one square forward.

The LRR Rules

Here is an easy way to understand how the "turmite" works. Imagine you are on a square grid and you have to decide what to do based on the color of the tile you are on. Click the color from the list above.

Paint it with color #2, turn left and move one square forward.

Paint it with color #3, turn right and move one square forward.

Paint it with color #1, turn right and move one square forward.
