An implementation of a two-bit Gray-coded temporal logic based cellular automaton created several emergent properties. Among these properties are potential links to areas as diverse as S4S modal logic, quantum computing, and the Chinese oracle, the I Ching. The implementation is described and demonstrated. Previously described emergent integer sequences are also identified. Possible applications in spatial modeling, domain modeling, and mobile robot movement are suggested.
