This tutorial paper proposes a subclass of cellular neural networks (CNN) having no inputs (i.e., autonomous) as a universal active substrate or medium for modeling and generating many pattern formation and nonlinear wave phenomena from numerous disciplines, including biology, chemistry, ecology, engineering, and physics. Each CNN is defined mathematically by its cell dynamics (e.g., state equations) and synaptic law, which specifies each cell's interaction with its neighbors. We focus on reaction-diffusion CNNs having a linear synaptic law that approximates a spatial Laplacian operator. Such a synaptic law can be realized by one or more layers of linear resistor couplings. An autonomous CNN made of third-order universal cells and coupled to each other by only one layer of linear resistors provides a unified active medium for generating trigger (autowave) waves, target (concentric) waves, spiral waves, and scroll waves. When a second layer of linear resistors is added to couple a second capacitor voltage in each cell to its neighboring cells, the resulting CNN can be used to generate various turing patterns
