The idea of synthetic life has been with me since very young. I read Asimov's "Foundation" series when I was 10, and many other sci-fi works which had A.I. in some form or another. In one of Asimov's last books in "Foundation", he describes a kind of "robot" that is essentially indistinguishable from humans. Fast-forward a few years and I'm thinking about the same thing as I watch "Westworld"... Could it ever be done? Could we one day synthesize life? Self-replicating molecules with something other than carbon as a base?
Also, if you noticed the 'glitch' and were bothered by it, don't be. It's an imperfection that I left there deliberately as part of the piece. Evolution would not have gotten very far without imperfections. Mistakes in the copying process (mutation) is the key to complex life being able to evolve.

Great work. Yes, mutations are vital for evolution. And synthetic life? They would only ever be 'our' version of life, a simulation with evolutionary variables in-built. Until their energies run out. But mathematically dangerous none the less. Maybe... some other planet has already created them... Let's hope they don't find a way to create fast, interstellar travel. Let's hope they don't find Earth anytime soon.

Impressive, spectacular, every week you surprise me, how much work, and above you invoke Asimov. Moebius tape brings to mind. All the things that amaze me have this creation. If there is an error I will not discover it, all perfection must necessarily have one. My admiration thank you for creating it.
