Butterfly Effect, Program Iterator, Flower

Mark, Michael, and i saw The Butterfly Effect last night. And it raised the question (n.b. i didn't say "begs the question) about what would be the long term general effect if a past event was changed.

More on that later; somehow we got onto the topic of programming. I think i mentioned with a little game theory you can make small predictions. Then i claimed that it's possible to iterate through all runnable computer programs. Mark retorted it's a very difficult challenge. Well i've started work on a new project.

This project has more to do than responding to Mark's challenge. Since this project will build the abstract syntax tree (AST) from a program, i can use that as part of my Flower Project

Haven't heard of the Flower Project? I want to put a flower on my webpage (or some other space). This flower or flower garden will model the attributes and behavior of a flower to a fine detail. It will have color, stem length, branching factor, number of petals, shape of leaves, shape of petals. Behavior will be implemented by a set of instructions. Finally you can cross the flower by mixing their attributes and mixing their instructions. It will use a genetic algorithm.
