Thanks for the advice with the fluid dynamics problem.  To Paul and 
Andrzej, I did know that Wolfram meant to bypass the whole problem of 
solving the differential equations, because that goes against his whole 
philosophy of ANKOS; however, the issue with systems such as weather, I 
think, is that to be able and compute any kind of realistic answer would 
require immensely accurate initial conditions, and the ability to have the 
correct CA program.  I thought it would be easier to just learn how to 
apply the differential equations.  In the end I a professor helped build a 
model into Mathematica based on a paper from the middle eighties about the 
growth of galaxies, which can be described as a turbulent fluid; thus I can 
make the same conjectures about the cellular automata this way.  Thanks for 
the help!!
