The World According to Rudy Rucker

The Soup Kitchen has been closed for a few days due to a major security breach at math.wisc.edu. Now that we're open for business again, we're offering a soup by guest chef Rudy Rucker of San Jose State.

The soup depicts a complex web of interacting tracks and ecologicical textures left by competing species within a virtual habitat.
