Interesting cite [OP's #5] from the paper (while searching for Wolfram :-)

E. F. Codd was doing CAs in late 60s. What an impressive mind: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Codd%27s_cellular_automaton

Are there practical applications for cellular automata?

Stephen Wolfram sold a book about it.


Maybe, but you'll have to spell out the metaphor in order to make this a substantive comment.


(Edit: *automaton)

My first, well-earned downvote goes to you.
