Abstract: We describe an empirical investigation within an artificial world, aegis, where a population of animals and plants is evolving. We compare different system setups in search of an `ideal' world that allows a constantly high number of inhabitants for a long period of time. We observe that high responsiveness at individual level (speed of movement) or population level (high fertility) are `ideal'. Furthermore, we investigate the emergence of the so-called mental features of animals determining their social, consumptional and aggressive behaviour. The tests show that being socially oriented is generally advantageous, while agressive behaviour only emerges under specific circumstances.

Keywords: dynamic, problems,
