Abstract

Agents affected by their own future states in a one-dimensional discrete dynamical system (1-DDS) can replicate two-dimensional images. A novel and practical set of two rules have been developed in this paper to calculate the number of iterations required for exact replication. It is argued that retrocausal updation used by 1-DDS can replicate any n-dimensional digital object. It is shown that the way iterations reach a final image are different for randomly generated images and non-random images. This paper suggests a simple method for replicating and detecting non-randomness in images.
