The nature of distributed computation has long been a topic of interest in complex systems science, physics, artificial life and bioinformatics. In particular, emergent complex behavior has often been described from the perspective of computation within the system (Mitchell 1998b,a) and has been postulated to be associated with the capability to support universal computation (Langton 1990; Wolfram 1984c; Casti 1991).
