  abstract =     "This paper presents an evolving swarm system of flying
                 agents simulated as a collective intelligence within
                 the Breve auto-constructive artificial life
                 environment. The behaviour of each agent is governed by
                 genetically evolved program codes expressed in the Push
                 programming language. There are two objectives in this
                 paper, that is to investigate the effects of firstly
                 code size limit and secondly two different versions of
                 the Push genetic programming language on the
                 auto-constructive evolution of artificial life. We
                 investigated these genetic programming code elements on
                 reproductive competence using a measure based on the
                 self-sustainability of the population.
                 Self-sustainability is the point in time when the
                 current population's agents are able to reproduce
                 enough offspring to maintain the minimum population
                 size without any new agents being randomly injected
                 from the system. From the results, we found that the
                 Push2 implementation showed slightly better
                 evolvability than Push3 in terms of achieving
                 self-sufficiency. In terms of code size limit, the
                 reproductive competence of the collective swarm was
                 affected quite significantly at certain parameter
