Imagine in the spirit of Seti@home there was another search for life, only this one in the very computers doing the searching! Combine aspects of this idea: http://www.hip.atr.co.jp/~ray/tierra/tierra.html but much more open ended, and containing filters to keep bad alife elements from entering the system who are engineered to try to exploit it.

I envision something very high level like an earth simulator or something like an alife version of Unreal or Ultima Online.
