We visit Tierra, a computerized terrarium in which artificial life forms known as biomorphs grow and mutate, revealing new insights into natural selection and evolution.

We play a game of Balance of Power, a simulation of the complex forces shaping geopolitics. And we take a drive through TRANSIMS, a model of the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico, to discover the root causes of events like traffic jams and accidents. Along the way, Casti probes the answers to a host of profound questions these would-be worlds raise about the new science of simulation.
