Is Black Goo the original form of Programmable Matter?
Programmable Matter: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Programmable_matter
“Programmable matter is a term originally coined in 1991 by Toffoli and Margolus to refer to an ensemble of fine-grained computing elements arranged in space. Their paper describes a computing substrate that is composed of fine-grained compute nodes distributed throughout space which communicate using only nearest neighbour interactions. In this context, programmable matter refers to compute models similar to cellular automata and lattice gas automata. The CAM-8 architecture is an example hardware realization of this model. This function is also known as “digital referenced areas” (DRA) in some forms of self-replicating machine science”.
