Kevan's zombie simulation reminds me of nothing so much as the formation of galaxies. As the sim starts, the universe is hot and young. The survivors get infected and condense into slower moving matter, which then itself clumps into larger, even slower moving massive objects. Galaxies are zombie hordes of stars, shuffling round the universe converting the free interstellar medium into brainless eating machines.
