This article studies the evolution of cellular automata in which the cells each contain data and genetic programs. The immediate application of this convergence is to study how different legal rules affect the evolution of learning and behavior in an economy. The study uses the typical "Coase Theorem" scenario, in which neighbors engage in activities that may detrimentally affect each other.
