### Is there such a thing as a stationary wickstretcher?

Posted: March 30th, 2015, 4:16 pm
Speaking about infinitely growing patterns, is such a pattern as a stationary wickstretcher known? It would relate to a gun in the same way as a normal wickstretcher relates to a puffer. Are growing wicks known?

And hereby I mean wicks that are "reasonably closely connected", citing Jason Summers (otherwise the answer would be too easy).

It sounds like an impush, but instead of simply moving, the hasseled reaction also clones itself.

Wait is that what you're looking for?

### Re: Is there such a thing as a stationary wickstretcher?

To make the analogy complete, you'd need a wick that could grow into empty space without any support. I can't think of any such things offhand. Wicks generally need to be capped by (moving) wickstretchers. Otherwise they're probably just extensible spaceships in disguise.

There are certainly lots of wicks that need a moving wickstretcher end and a stationary end. -- In which case I seem to recall the stationary end is called a "post", but strangely the Life Lexicon and LifeWiki don't seem to have any confirmation for that.

Yes, that's what I meant. In some sense, such a wick would be a unidirectional replicator (it would replicate itself but only on one end).

EDIT: Alternatively, there might be a pattern, that makes a "wave" propagating through a wick and elongating it on the other end.

It HAS to be "pulses". If it is a 1D replicatior, well, OK, we could get easily a support... but we would need to find it first. And no such object has ever been seen.
Pulses can be gliders, like in the pattern I threw, but it seems like a lazy solution.

If a stationary end stabilization can be found for the wick found stabilized in 114P6H1V0, then I think that could be considered a stationary wickstretcher. But such a stabilization would probably be very difficult to make.

I think he meant a wick that grows, but there is no spaceship on a side to make it grow, it grows on it's own. I'm not sure it's possible.

For that option, I think the best (only?) example in Conway's Life is Jason Summers' traffic-jam extruder (in Golly's Signal-Circuitry collection). Use goto.py to run it forward to a relatively interesting moment, say T=9576000. Then maybe watch it run in LifeHistory to see what's going on. One of the long "wick-pushing" reactions occurs just before T=9604000.

I think this almost counts -- the traffic lights are "reasonably closely connected" enough to sustain the traffic-jam chain reaction, anyway. But it takes some impressive circuitry to sustain the ever-slower movement of the far end of the wick.

... but 99,9999% of the time, the traffic lights aren't spaced enough. At almost any moment, you can zoom and see some non-jammed TLs. So, I don't think we can call this a wick. Especially since the inputs aren't regular.

@towerator If you take large enough (and growing) period, the traffic lights are in fact "reasonably closely connected"!

Thanks in return for reminding me about it...! It took me most of a day to remember that the pattern even existed, and I had completely forgotten that I had checked it into Golly's pattern collection.

I don't think there are many other known "push" reactions that can do anything even vaguely equivalent. There's almost a way to use a pre-beehive to push a beehive, but it doesn't seem to be possible to chain those reactions cleanly.

So, I don't think we can call this a wick.

Actually there exists a non-zero number k such that if you pick any location on the line of traffic lights, the traffic lights are eventually jammed a fraction of the time that is greater then k, so I think it qualifies as a wick.
By the way, why do the reactions have to occur at such long intervals?

The reactions don't need the time they're given. However, the TL chain moves around, so there need to be a large number of options to match the possible locations of the first TL. The circuitry to deduce the proper *WSS salvo takes the time (although could likely be improved with current glider manipulation).

This reaction works the same as the *WSS salvo in the typical case.
`x = 74, y = 35, rule = LifeHistory58.A\$58.A\$45.3A10.A10.3A\$26.A\$25.A17.A5.A4.3A3.3A4.A5.A\$25.3A15.A5.A17.A5.A\$43.A5.A8.A8.A5.A\$58.A\$45.3A10.A10.3A2\$26.3A\$26.A\$27.A20\$.A\$.2A\$A.A!`

However, the *WSS salvo is able to communicate the termination of a pullback sequence, while this one just gets stuck. I feel like there's a glider salvo that can function the same though, and from it stable circuitry that cuts the pattern's bulk down considerably.

Edit: So I've decided I want to try my hand at making a TL extruder with some semblance of current technology (also just for the sake of making a thing to my liking). Do the construction-savvy have on hand a G salvo + Block that produces a 90 degree G without moving the block? I know it can be done with a 3G pushing elbow and 2G pull, but 5G seems excessive.

I have a good idea, but it isn't it Life. Very possibly there is a way to put together two HighLife c/98 spaceships in a line such that they interact in some generations. A gun producing the synthesis of the spaceship could extend the trail, so it would be a wickstretcher.

First of all, a slidegun, in my opinion, can be only marginally qualified as a stationary pattern. Secondly, such patterns have already been built, see Life/Miscellaneous/tubstretch-c124b.rle by Jason Summers (that one makes a stationary pattern grow). But yes, it would be an interesting thing to build. Can anyone come up with a synthesis for the 114P6H1V0 pushalong?

That would be cheating. A c/98 spaceship can move autonomously and doesn't need a fencepost.

But!!! The wickstretcher in this analogy is a very strict one; one without any stationary support. (I think the TL extender and the QB extender in jslife qualifies.)

Puffer = moving factory, loose periodic product.
Wickstretcher = moving factory, tight periodic product.

Gun = stationary factory, loose periodic product.
Puffer : wickstretcher = gun : X

I am pretty sure the first wickstretcher counts as a wickstretcher:
wickstretcher 1
Moving pattern, tight periodic product.
Note that the periodic product is supported by a stationary part, and the term "wickstretcher" does not require the wick(tight periodic product) to be self-suatainable.

Now let's think about X in the analogy.
Stationary factory, tight periodic product.
And if we follow the analogy as is, the wick(tight periodic product) need not be self sustainable. Thus the following pattern,
`x = 39, y = 48, rule = B3/S238bo6bo7bo6bo\$7b3o4b3o5b3o4b3o\$2bo4bob2o2b2o2bo3bo2b2o2b2obo4bo\$b3o4b3o2b3obo3bob3o2b3o4b3o\$2obo4b3obo2bob2ob2obo2bob3o4bob2o\$3o5b2o19b2o5b3o\$b2o5b2obo2b3o5b3o2bob2o5b2o\$8b2o2b2o2bobobobo2b2o2b2o\$4b2o2b3o6b2ob2o6b3o2b2o\$8b3o17b3o\$8b2o8bobo8b2o\$18bobo\$16bo5bo\$17b2ob2o\$16bobobobo\$16b2o3b2o\$12b2o3b2ob2o3b2o\$12bo3b2o3b2o3bo\$13bo11bo\$11bobo3bo3bo3bobo\$10bobob4o3b4obobo\$10bobo4bo3bo4bobo\$9b2obobob2o3b2obobob2o\$12bo3bo5bo3bo\$12bob2obo3bob2obo\$13bo11bo\$14b2ob2ob2ob2o\$11b3o2b2o3b2o2b3o\$11bo2bo9bo2bo\$12bobob2o3b2obobo\$11b2obo3bobo3bob2o\$10bo3bobo5bobo3bo\$11bobo2b2o3b2o2bobo\$10b2obob2o5b2obob2o\$13bob3o3b3obo\$13bo11bo\$11b2obo9bob2o\$12bobo3bobo3bobo\$12bobo3bobo3bobo\$13bob4ob4obo\$11bobo4bobo4bobo\$10bobobobobobobobobobo\$10bobobobobobobobobobo\$11bo2bobobobobobo2bo\$12b5obobob5o\$17bo3bo\$11bob4o5b4obo\$11b2obo9bob2o!`
Or, in fact, almost all wickstretchers qualify as X.

Now, the term you should have put instead of "wickstretchers" in the analogy should be a subset of wickstretchers; i.e. wickstretchers that has no stationary part supporting the wick. (I'll call this subset 'Y' later.) The only examples I could find are tub/boatstretchers. Traffic jam stretchers and qb stretchers almost qualify (and may qualify if we tweak it a bit)

If you require the moving part of the wickstretcher to be nonempty when you define the term wickstretcher, interesting things happen. <s>cp4space</s>
Y are the only wickstrerchers that don't qualify as X. And "stationary wickstretchers" are the only subset of X that don't qualify as wickstretchers

### Re: Is there such a thing as a stationary wickstretcher?

For me the wickstretcher is just the moving object that elongates a wick. What you refer to as "a stationary part" is normally called a fencepost and is not considered a part of a wickstretcher.
