In Summary we can say that the L- system has the features of Artifical Life!

Working with L- Systems emphasizes how easy it is to create complex images by using simple rules. By adjusting the parameters, i.e. the angle, or by slightly changing the rules, some very different images occur. If you have been using your fantasy and have played around with our "Play yourself" section you will have noticed, that most of the time it is difficult to predict the outcome. Furthermore in L- systems, figures emerge rather than being modeled. Not to forget, L- system was originally made in order to understand the development of multicellular organisms.

Recursions : 12
Angle      : 55
Axiom      : A
Rules      : A=+AF+AF

Would you have expected, that this simple rule forms a butterfly-like shape after 12 Recursions?
