Artificial Evolution Re-Discovers Building Principles

In one experiment after another, our evolutionary setup for Lego structures came out with solutions that employ known principles of construction without really ``knowing'' about them. The recombination and mutation mechanisms are capable of finding construction principles due to the reuse of relevant subparts and their changes of roles.
