At first Wolfram's assertion

At first Wolfram's assertion that everything started from CA, sounded too fascinating for me to even think about whether it was plausible or not. However, as other people have pointed out, it seems rather difficult to say that human behavior is derived from CA. There are just too many exceptions and intricacies. I was thinking that if the CA is allowed to run for a very large number of iterations, would its complexity increase, or would it stay at the same level of complexity? For CA to be the basis of life, it would have to evolve to higher complexities over time...
