This is non-threaded Mind in Python. I was having fun with this module
as it already was out of control at this early stage of development:

  os.execv(sys.argv[0], sys.argv) it appears must have all args as a

second arg, and I supposed that I must exclude sys.argv[0] from it.

All other modules are like this:

-><----------- Security.py

def Security(m):


But they are needed to have something non-trivial.

Rejuvenations are made as complete restarting the process. This is
in case Mind changed some modules by itself ;-) Or even it's main module
aLife.py ;-)

Have fun.
