Meanders is a generative system driven by the interaction of growing agents. The agents are defined by their initial position, a velocity vector (ordered or random), and a constraint boundary (usually a circle), moreover they are able to avoid proximity events with other agents (and their own body too) by means of their bow sensor. However while the bodies fill the available space, an agent may experiencing a kind of ‘blind alley’ condition, that would mean the dead of that agent. But in that case an unexpected (emergent?) feature of the software creates a sort of extra propulsion, that allows the agent to quick escape from that deadly situation, crossing the surrounding walls of bodies.
