What is the reasoning here?
This manifesto proposes a solution to deep conundrums within artificial intelligence (AI) and artificial life (AL) by presenting the singular argument that machines which express life cannot be designed by making assumptions; rather, they must be designed as life-forms in their own right, subject to a parametric set of rules analogous to living systems stemming from the environment in which they inhabit. I believe this is an agreeable tenet across the discipline. Foundations of machine life are imperative to establish in order to facilitate evolution from present-day rudimentary forms into those more advanced. Although numerous forms exist, a proper architecture of similitude, laws, modes, and orchestration needs to be authored to establish baselines for generational development of the artificial life form.
