Who, me? If Cthulhu had deigned to make an appearance a few months sooner, it looks like my conjecture would have lasted a lot longer. It's all because I kept forgetting to feed the shoggoth, no doubt.

The trigger sequence only needs two small active regions -- a Herschel plus a pre-honeyfarm or pre-traffic light -- but I guess I can see why it hasn't happened to turn up before now:

In general, it fits right in with my revised conjecture that new bit counts will appear whenever they darn well feel like it. Also the likelihood that a new highest bit count will be odd rather than even seems to be heading gradually toward 50% (because as the bit-count goes up, the probability gradually decreases that a Big Enough(TM) empty space will be available for a Big Enough symmetric still life to stabilize, before something asymmetrical touches it and modifies it.) dvgrn Moderator Posts: 4560 Joined: May 17th, 2009, 11:00 pm Location: Madison, WI ### Re: Soup search results BlinkerSpawn wrote:Fifteen and twenty (EDIT: Sixteen) gliders, respectively: ...

It's a witty pun from push-me-pullyu, a species with only two heads that appears in Dr. Dolittle. Gosh, how did I know this kinda thing!

After I noticed that it was equally easy to create Cthulu's twin cis, the obvious pun quickly ran out of control and spawned several others (involving several different breeds (breads?) and mangled (mangoed?) forms), and when the two-headed version came up, one on pushme-pullyu was almost inevitable. I plead insanity. A wasted mind is a terrible thing.

### Re: Soup search results

Thing is that the distinction between something arising in C1 and arising in another symmetry type is considered to be important, but at the same time it's still often considered as having 'appeared' if it shows up in any symmetry. It's just that it's considered to be a 'natural' appearance (as opposed to semi-natural) and thus more important if it shows up in C1.
