This paper explores a philosophy and connectionist al- gorithm for creating a long-term, self-organizing develop- mental robot control system. This intrinsic algorithm and architecture implements self-motivation by creating a sys- tem capable of anticipating its next state, while simultane- ously attempting to seek out that which it cannot predict. These competing internal pressures are designed to drive the system in a manner reminiscent of a co-evolutionary arms race.
