The most important element of Process [#] is the text. The text is Process [#] described in English, written with the intention of translating its content into software. The Elements, Forms, and Behaviors referenced within the Process text are defined in the Library.

The software interpretation is secondary to the text. The text leaves many decisions open to the programmer, decisions that must be made using personal judgment. The act of translating the Process from English into a machine language interprets the text. Process

[#] was implemented by [NAME] into the [LANGUAGE] language in [YEAR].

The hardware is inconsequential and in in time it will fail. It was selected to be robust, but electronic devices are fragile. If a component of the hardware fails, it may be replaced without diminishing the work. Eventually, compatible components won´t be available. When this happens, a new hardware system must be acquired and the software modified for the new platform.

Forms
F1: Circle
F2: Line

Behaviors
B1: Move in straight line
B2:

Constrain to surface
B3: Change direction while touching another Element
B4: Move away from overlapping Element
B5: Enter from the opposite edge after moving off the surface
B6: Orient toward the direction of an Element that is touching
B7: Deviate from the current direction

Elements
E1: F1 + B1 + B2 + B3 + B4
E2: F1 + B1 + B5
E3: F2 + B1 + B3 + B5
E4: F1 + B1 + B2 + B3
E5: F2 + B1 + B5 + B6 + B7
