Perpetuating evolutionary emergence is the key to artificially evolving increasingly complex systems. In order to generate complex entities with adaptive behaviors beyond our manual design capability, longterm incremental evolution with continuing emergence is called for. Purely artificial selection models, such as traditional genetic algorithms, are argued to be fundamentally inadequate for this calling and existing natural selection systems are evaluated. Thus some requirements for perpetuating evolutionary emergence are revealed. A new environment containing simple virtual autonomous organisms has been created to satisfy these requirements. Resulting evolutionary emergent behaviors are reported alongside of their neural correlates. In one example, the collective behavior of one species clearly provides a selective force which is overcome by another species, demonstrating the perpetuation of evolutionary emergence via naturally arising coevolution.
