My rectifier was an accidental discovery, since I wasn't deliberately trying to make a reflector:

What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the mono-clinic!

Run Mark Niemeic's B-heptomino syntheses and you may notice a middleweight spaceship. The essential reaction is captured below:

I discovered that a p30 Gosper Glider Gun can be used to invert a glider coming from the front:
`x = 36, y = 24, rule = B3/S2324bo\$22bobo\$12b2o6b2o12b2o\$11bo3bo4b2o12b2o\$2o8bo5bo3b2o\$2o8bo3bob2o4bobo\$10bo5bo7bo\$11bo3bo\$12b2o13\$27b3o\$27bo\$28bo!`

I was firing said gun into a debris field. A glider came back towards the gun very close to the stream. I thought for sure the gun was done for and was amazed when the gun survived and a hole was left in the glider stream.

I tried pairing two p30s together. The reaction takes out two incoming gliders and one outgoing glider:
`x = 132, y = 114, rule = B3/S234\$29bo\$27bobo\$17b2o6b2o12b2o\$16bo3bo4b2o12b2o\$5b2o8bo5bo3b2o\$5b2o8bo3bob2o4bobo\$15bo5bo7bo\$16bo3bo\$17b2o13\$32b3o\$32bo\$33bo5\$40b2o\$40bobo\$40bo6\$47b3o\$47bo\$48bo5\$55b2o\$55bobo\$55bo6\$62b3o\$62bo\$63bo5\$70b2o\$70bobo\$70bo6\$77b3o\$77bo\$78bo5\$85b2o\$85bobo\$85bo6\$92b3o\$92bo\$93bo5\$100b2o\$100bobo\$100bo5\$119b2o\$107b3o2bo5bo3bo\$103bo3bo9bo5bo\$101bobo4bo8bo3bob2o2b2o\$99b2o16bo5bo3b2o\$93b2o4b2o17bo3bo\$93b2o4b2o18b2o\$101bobo\$103bo!`

Trying to use it as a memory loop in the traditional way failed (It erased the information):
`x = 129, y = 108, rule = B3/S23\$26bo\$24bobo\$14b2o6b2o12b2o\$13bo3bo4b2o12b2o\$2b2o8bo5bo3b2o\$2b2o8bo3bob2o4bobo\$12bo5bo7bo\$13bo3bo\$14b2o13\$29b3o\$29bo\$30bo5\$37b2o\$37bobo\$37bo13\$52b2o\$52bobo\$52bo6\$59b3o\$59bo\$60bo5\$67b2o\$67bobo\$67bo13\$82b2o\$82bobo\$82bo13\$97b2o\$97bobo\$97bo5\$116b2o\$104b3o2bo5bo3bo\$100bo3bo9bo5bo\$98bobo4bo8bo3bob2o2b2o\$96b2o16bo5bo3b2o\$90b2o4b2o17bo3bo\$90b2o4b2o18b2o\$98bobo\$100bo!`

However, It does work as a memory loop to store groups of one or two gliders, with one empty space between each group (Distance between guns lengthened to better show that the memory is stored.):

In 16 generations there will be another B-heptomino, 8 cells advanced vertically from its starting location. The debris will vaporize but gets in the way of a repeat of the reaction.

It's p480, but it isn't a "pure" heisenburp because the glider gets affected.

I was originally trying to make a puffer, when I found this interesting thing a while ago:

`x = 48, y = 62, rule = B3/S2346bo\$47bo\$45b3o6\$38bo\$39bo\$37b3o6\$31bo\$29bobo\$30b2o6\$23bo\$21bobo\$22b2o6\$14bo\$15bo\$13b3o6\$7bo\$5bobo\$6b2o6b6o\$13bo5bo\$19bo\$18bo3\$27b2o\$23b4ob2o\$24b5o\$25b3o3\$25b4o\$24bo3bo\$28bo\$19b2o6bo\$b6o8b4ob2o\$o5bo8b6o\$6bo9b4o\$5bo!`

I named it Base.rle for some reason.

It "sorts" out gliders.

This LWSS to glider converter uses a Herschel,
but it unexpectedly converts any *WSS to a glider

Didn't I discover the first pattern?

Oops! It may very well be yours, I did not file it properly in the correct directory and with your name in the title, sorry about that. I did add the catalyst to it though. I have literally tens of thousands of saved patterns and they are not well organized/documented.

That could make a relatively cheap glider synthesis. One would have to hit it with random gliders to get rid of the extra debris, but if we're lucky it will take just one, resulting in a 6-glider synthesis (we probably aren't so lucky).

`x = 27, y = 19, rule = B3/S234\$7bobo\$8b2o\$8bo4\$22bo\$11b2o8b3o\$10bobo10bo\$12bo!`

for now, 8-glider synthesis:

Here's my first attempt:

Third time's the charm! (seven gliders)
`x = 71, y = 73, rule = B3/S2368bobo\$68b2o\$69bo36\$obo\$b2o\$bo10\$15bo\$16b2o\$15b2o15bobo\$32b2o\$33bo11\$4b2o\$3bobo49b2o\$5bo49bobo\$55bo2\$15b2o\$16b2o\$15bo!`

Ever notice that the number of gliders is lucky seven?

4 ways for 7-glider synthesis:
`x = 125, y = 86, rule = B3/S2327bo\$26b2o\$26bobo4\$obo77bobo40bo\$b2o78b2o39b2o\$bo79bo40bobo2\$113bo\$112b2o\$15bo79bo16bobo\$4b2o8b3o67b2o8b3o\$3bobo10bo66bobo10bo\$5bo79bo7\$33b2o\$33bobo\$33bo17\$122bo\$121bo\$121b3o3\$obo\$b2o\$bo4\$15bo\$4b2o8b3o\$3bobo10bo98bo\$5bo109bobo\$115b2o\$48b2o\$34b2o12bobo\$33b2o13bo\$35bo16\$80bobo\$81b2o\$81bo4\$95bo\$84b2o8b3o\$83bobo10bo\$85bo!`

In each case the rightmost glider is there to clean up one last object that would form otherwise.

Sixth glider discovery reveals a different larger still life:

An 8-glider solution to synthesize an 18-bit still life:

I don't know if this 18-bit still life already has a glider synthesis.

Looks like you missed mine.

15 bit still life in 5 gliders by Dave Buckingham:
`#C 15.1054x=20, y=1613bo\$13bobo\$13b2o2b3o\$5bobo9bo\$6b2o10bo\$6bo\$2bo\$obo\$b2o5\$15bo\$14b2o\$14bobo!`

Which, using a reaction by Mark Neimiec, can be turned into the 18 bit still life using 3 more Gliders
`#C 18.14222x=14, y=14, h=2, v=19b2o\$8bobo\$8bo\$9b4o\$13bo\$11bobo\$10bobo\$bo9bo\$2bo\$3o5b2o\$7b2o\$3b3o3bo\$5bo\$4bo!`

But that still requires a total of 8 Gliders.

Appears to be new, at least I didn't list it.

A little more research shows that the P4 is uses a rotor compatible to one found by Dean Hickerson. This oscillator is shown at the top, the next two are hybrids consisting of old and new halves, while the bottom is another variation of Hickerson's oscillator I didn't have in my lists.

Two gliders & two blocks. One glider is reflected, one block is deleted. Other interesting things happen when one of the four objects is deleted.
`x = 9, y = 12, rule = B3/S238bo\$6b2o\$7b2o\$3bo\$2bo\$2b3o4\$4b2o\$2o2b2o\$2o!`

I noticed this reaction spontaneously arising in a collision of glider & LWSS streams:
`x = 83, y = 87, rule = B3/S23o\$b2o\$2o6\$7bobo\$8b2o\$8bo5\$15bo\$16b2o\$15b2o6\$22bobo\$23b2o\$23bo3\$69b2o\$53b2o13b4o\$30bo21b2ob2o10b2ob2o\$31b2o20b4o11b2o\$30b2o22b2o7\$35b3o\$35bo\$36bo5\$43b2o\$43bobo\$43bo6\$50b3o\$50bo\$51bo5\$58b2o\$58bobo\$58bo6\$65b3o\$65bo\$66bo5\$73b2o\$73bobo\$73bo6\$80b3o\$80bo\$81bo!`

A glider + block to Pi reaction, with a Pi + block reaction for comparison.

What's significant about the spontaneously appearing reaction with the gliders and the LWSSs?

Weird reflection reaction:
`x = 9, y = 5, rule = B3/S23o\$b2ob4o\$2o2bo2b2o\$4bo\$4b2o!`

Notice the similarity between gen. 115 and gen. 144?

Nothing much. I was just showing how I accidentally discovered this reaction. I'm very interested in any reaction that produces closely aligned pairs of gliders. It might be possible to tame the glider / LWSS reaction using some still-life catalysts.
