I have a new proposal for 30P5H2V0, what I call Pocketwatch--looking back on project alias I see "caravan" was suggested since it's a "moving house". How about "mobile home"? (Of course I still prefer pocketwatch)
I am a prolific creator of many rather pathetic googological functions

My CA rules can be found here

Also, the tree game

This is purely based on feeling, but for me none of the names above fit the ship very well. "Caravan" fits the best for me. Again, this is all feelings, I have no good reasons, I just feel they dont fit.

I dunno whether this is in the right place.

I will call it a "wickpuffer", since I can`t find a pattern of the oscillating "noise", which might be simulating a dirty puffer in a 1dimensional CA (i dunno)
Can anyone prove that this is aperiodic or not?
