Then, see how the ant
- At first moves randomly,
- After one or a few minutes decides to build a highway.
This is the "Langton mathematical puzzle" or "Langton ant",
which until now nobody could explain and which gives a glimpse to what is a
"mathematical attractor" starting from chaos and leading
when crossing a "critical threshold" to self organization and emergence.
