Enjoy the unknown world and nurture the ability to pursue oneself “Selton’s Mysterious Tablet” is a teaching material that develops the ability to think by formulating hypotheses and pursuing unknown worlds using life games as materials. “Cells” that repeat self-replication and disappearance according to simple rules follow a completely different evolution just by changing the initial arrangement slightly. Their movements are beautiful just by looking at them, and you can feel the breadth and complexity of the evolution of life.
Enjoy what you don’t understand. I would like you to think about “why did it happen?” and “what would happen if you try this way?” We believe that knowing the feeling of being immersed unintentionally will lead to the ability to work passionately in all fields, even if there are things you don’t understand in your life ahead.
