The exponential curve is painfully bumpy, not nice and smooth.

If the number of methusalehs in successive bins approximates to a power law, then the curve is not exponential: power law distributions approach zero much more slowly. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_law. I think there has been previous work on power laws in relation to Game of Life, concerning IIRC the size of disturbances that arise from switching the state of a single cell in a stable configuration. I'll see if I can find a reference.

(OT: My acquaintance with power laws derives from a bit of work I did around 2003-4 on the distribution of rural land holding sizes in Scotland. I found they approximated to a power law, meaning that a few greedy b******s own most of Scotland - see Andy Wightman's Who Owns Scotland (which preceded and informed my work) for a far more thorough but less mathematical treatment. My conference paper on the matter should be online somewhere, but the link I have doesn't work any more.)

Just thought it is worth mentioning that this is in fact Lidka Huh, interesting. Lidka predecessors are a really common bottleneck, the most frequent overlap in the 29K bin by about a factor of two. It's possible to sort the output of my script to find which 16x16 pattern has an ancestor that takes the longest to evolve into Lidka. It turns out to be this one: #C 247-tick predecessor of original Lidka, total survival time 29,300 ticks#C https://catagolue.appspot.com/hashsoup/C1/l_xsQF3KKe8cgm3386587/b3s23x = 16, y = 16, rule = B3/S23ob3o2b3ob2obo$obo2bo4bo3b2o$bo2bo2bob2o2b2o$2b2o3bo3b4o$5bo2bo4b2o$o2bo2bo2bo5bo$ob2ob6o2bo$b3o3bobo2bob2o$b3o2bob2o3b2o$4b4o2b2ob3o$5o3bob2ob2o$b2ob3obo2b5o$bo2b2ob2o4b3o$6obo$o2b2o3b3obo2bo$o2b3ob4obo2bo!

But of course Catagolue has probably thrown out sixty-odd more Lidka predecessors just after the bin filled up, and many thousands more since Year Zero of apgsearch. So there are probably older ancestors within reach of a dedicated search, though Catagolue won't notice them unless the storage rules are changed.

-- Not that there's any particular market for Lidka predecessors... but I wonder if copies of 32829M are piling up in the 32K and 33K bins?

We know for sure that 40514M (the next possible low-population bottleneck pattern in the long-lived methuselahs list) isn't waiting to be rediscovered in the 40K bin, since apgsearch is still stubbornly refusing to find any methuselahs at all in the 40nnn range.

I've read the Wikipedia treatment of power-law approximations, and am now more confused than when I started. Everyone should take both terms I used, "exponential" and "power law", with several grains of salt.

In other words, I'm definitely not at all clear on what the best statistical method would be for fitting a predictive equation to the long-tail curve of counts in the 1000-tick methuselah bins. It just seemed interesting that the apparent excessive noise in the counts for some of the lower bins, could be at least partly explained by early low-population bottlenecks like Lidka.

I suppose something similar might be true for statistical bumps in the N-bit still life counts: if you remove duplicates that are due to the exact same low-bit-count predecessor, maybe the remaining counts would be easier to fit to... um... some smooth curve or other.

-----------------------------------

Meanwhile, here's a version of the methuselah fingerprinter script that handles pulsars as well as beacons correctly, and makes just one call to Catagolue instead of up to five hundred, using lifelib calls to re-create the soups from a list of soup sample hashes. That link is really most of what is needed -- at least for C1 soups, it's pretty easy to produce them directly from the hash string -- but for now I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to improve the script to take input from the user about which bin to process, and maybe remove the dependency on lifelib if that causes trouble for too many people.

(In theory, acquiring lifelib is as simple as pip install python-lifelib, but on Windows it's also necessary to install Cygwin. And people may run into other speed bumps that I haven't thought of yet.)

Anyway:

This was tested against the 30k bin (hardcoded a couple of places in the script), and as expected from the relatively low population of the bin, there are only 17 overlapping methuselahs, all due to fairly low-population bottlenecks:

But it has 120 duplicates instead of less than 20, due to Lidka and other bottleneck attractors. dvgrn Moderator Posts: 5578 Joined: May 17th, 2009, 11:00 pm Location: Madison, WI ### Re: Soup search results Third distinct 2xQB oscillator in C1: x = 16, y = 16, rule = B3/S23oboobbbooobobooo$oobbobbobbbboobo$bbbbbobobobooooo$oooobbbbbbobbbob$bbbobbobooboobbo$obobobbooooooobo$bobooobbbboboooo$bbboboooooooboob$obobbooooooooooo$bbobobbbbobobbbb$obobbbbobboobooo$ooooobbbbbbbboob$obobbbbbobbobobb$obbbbbooooobbbob$bbbbbbooobbbbbbo$obbboobobbbobobb!

Obviously the initial population can be reduced somewhat. Around T=230-260, or farther back around T=140, looks like a decent target for a glider synthesis, but I'm not sure exactly what the point would be of building nothing so inefficiently.

EDIT: Fixed quoted pattern. @Macbi and @Saka, thanks for pointing out the problem.

In the second synthesis, the missing object is just a beehive + B-heptomino. I don't know if either of these would end up being improvements, but it seems likely for the top one, and reasonable for the bottom.

Goldtiger997's highly recommended three-glider synthesis search script allows for an improvement on this. Here's a 12-glider synthesis that after 108 ticks converges with the diehard's T=55, so there are still over a thousand ticks to go:

Maybe something in the following suggestions from Goldtiger997's script (with GEN_CHECK set to 80 instead of the default 8) could build the left side in three gliders also, and bring the count down to 11. A couple of the recipes toward the right end look like they might fit, and of course a replacement for the 3G->2 blocks recipe could probably be found if needed -- I just grabbed the first one that worked. x = 830, y = 25, rule = B3/S234bo71bo78bo74bo70bo83bobo65bobo69bo74bo79bo75bo71bo$5bo71bo76bo76bo70bo82b2o67b2o70b2o73b2o75b2o75bo71bo$3b3o69b3o76b3o72b3o68b3o83bo67bo70b2o73b2o77b2o74b3o69b3o$152bo377bo74bo70bo$153bo156bo219b2o73b2o70bo$2o7b2o64b2o74b3o149b3o3bo219bobo72bobo68b3o76b3o$b2o5b2o6j6b2o150b3o74bo3b3o442bo$o9bo64bo152bo75bo450bo$229bo145bo74bo228b2o$150b3o72b3o148b2o73b2o225b2o140bo$150bo76bo147b2o3bo69b2o3bo82bo65bo75bo140b2o$151bo74bo153b2o73b2o80b2o65b2o214b2o$379bobo72bobo80bobo63bobo219bo$824bo$824b3o$77bo$77b2o$76bobo5$750bo$750b2o$749bobo! A gencols search allows a little more control over which directions gliders are coming from, but it sure is nice to have a very fast search program available that knows about pretty much all of the three-glider collisions. dvgrn Moderator Posts: 5578 Joined: May 17th, 2009, 11:00 pm Location: Madison, WI ### Re: Soup search results I'm not sure how useful glider syntheses of diehards are. Technically, they can have arbitrarily long lifespans by just pulling back the gliders, so their longevity is no longer a remarkable feature, and they don't leave any usable ash for subsequent constructions. I suppose they might be useful as intermediate unstable patterns in search scripts, e.g. phi-spark syntheses could be used when enumerating glider-phi collisions, but I don't see how smashing gliders into one particular mess created by 12 specific gliders would be any more productive than smashing gliders into any every random mess created by 12 random gliders (including ones that don't eventually die). One reason why things like glider-phi collisions are useful is that phi sparks can be easily and quickly synthesized, advantages which Rube-Goldberg diehards lack. mniemiec Posts: 1018 Joined: June 1st, 2013, 12:00 am ### Re: Soup search results mniemiec wrote:I'm not sure how useful glider syntheses of diehards are... Yeah, it's certainly an exercise in futility -- you can do "the same thing" with two gliders in a vanish reaction, starting from a little farther apart, or even a single glider bouncing back and forth between one-time turners, ending by hitting a block or blinker or whatever. My main reason for working out a glider synthesis was to try out Goldtiger997's new shortcut search script for three-glider syntheses (and it worked very nicely, three times in a row.) Secondarily, I was thinking of stringing together some high-period c/2 rakes to make an entry in the Spaceship with the longest plume competition. That's actually a case where you'd want to construct your nothing as slowly as possible. dvgrn Moderator Posts: 5578 Joined: May 17th, 2009, 11:00 pm Location: Madison, WI ### Re: Soup search results dvgrn wrote:Secondarily, I was thinking of stringing together some high-period c/2 rakes to make an entry in the Spaceship with the longest plume competition.

That makes sense, although it would be advisable to have a diehard that takes as long as possible in as compact an area as possible, to avoid having to use high-period rakes. I suppose the largest possible ship of this kind would be a constructor-based solution that left behind patterns with the slowest possible growth rate, that ultimately self-destructed. mniemiec Posts: 1018 Joined: June 1st, 2013, 12:00 am ### Re: Soup search results Is this p4 (https://catagolue.appspot.com/object/xp ... 3032/b3s23) known? x = 17, y = 17, rule = LifeHistory7.2A.2A$8.A.2A$6.A4.A$6.5A$5.7A$4.A7.A.3A$2.3A7.2A.2A$A2.2A3.A3.2A$2A.2A2.A.A2.2A.2A$3.2A3.A3.2A2.A$2A.2A7.3A$3A.A7.A$5.7A$6.5A$5.A4.A$5.2A.A$5.2A.2A!

The external asymmetric stabilizers look familiar; I think I've seen them posted somewhere on these forums within the last couple of years, although I'm not sure exactly when or where. mniemiec Posts: 1018 Joined: June 1st, 2013, 12:00 am ### Re: Soup search results Failed monomerization of the Octagon 4 variant, attempting to use the t-nosed p4 for stabilization: x = 11, y = 16, rule = B3/S234b2ob2o$5bo3bo$3bo4bo2$2bo5bo$bob5obo$bo7bo$2obo3bob2o$2bo5bo$2bob3obo$3bo3bo2$3bo3bo$3bo3bo2$4b3o!

### Re: Soup search results

Here's a huge soup (9 billion objects!) collected from running my computer overnight:

There's few interesting things, but I didn't think about looking through all 1701 objects. Does catagolue have a "sort by rarity" function?
