This is the sort of thing I've been thinking about, it's the
game of life however the children grow, go to school, get jobs
and support they're parents.

Unlike the basic game of life there is no grid so the concept
of how these processes discover each other to interact is what
I haven't thought through.

It does lend itself well to infinite uptime.
