Mechanisms of endowing cellular automata (CA) models with anticipation property are considered. As a background for investigation a widely known Conway’s game of ‘Life’ was chosen. Even within this simple model, introduction of anticipation has a crucial impact on the behavior of the system, resulting in emergence of multiple co-existing solutions. The inherent behavioral templates of classical ‘Life’ (fixed point, cycle, chaos) are valid for its anticipatory version; however, they develop at a level of sets of configurations. Extensive computational simulations were held and the most eloquent results are presented.
