The evolution of a mobile cell system is studied here. While a primary definition of life is self-reproduction, mobility is also a major characteristic. Typically, most alife models assume cell mobility a priori. Here, using a development of a cell model due to Varela and McMullin, we show the emergence of cell mobility. A balance between cell repair and mobility is demonstrated. The introduction of a new functional particle is a critical part of the present model.
