Some nice discoveries to kick off the exploration of circular neighbourhood LtL rules. The (2,1)c/2 rule in particular has some nice dynamics when starting from large random soups (best done with toroidal boundary conditions).

Here's an interesting range 2 circular neighbourhood rule with some engineering potential. There's a variety of small still lifes, a smallish c/3, and it's not explosive.

`x = 83, y = 45, rule = R2,C0,M0,S3..6,B5..5,NC`

Here's a kickback reaction with the c/3:

`x = 8, y = 9, rule = R2,C0,M0,S3..6,B5..5,NC`

I'm curious if there's a nearby rule where the c/3 is more common.
