One way to make the top thing is from generation 7 of a glider-tub collision; unfortunately, it forms upwards, so you would need to also edge-shoot the pi upwards (and I don't know of any way to do that).

This top thing is also part of the actual pufferfish synthesis. There are several 3 glider options for them, e.g. :

I'm guessing someone already noticed this, but if you put a pre-pulsar on an 8 x 16 torus, it oscillates with period 20. So if I understand correctly, this can be made into an agar.

How does one go about stabilizing this to produce a p20 oscillator?

Interesting -- this seems maybe a little less impossible than usual, since you don't have to stabilize the sides, only the top and bottom. If you could find a p10 sparker that produced the white sparks every 10 ticks, that would do it:

x = 13, y = 19, rule = LifeHistory.C.C.C.C.C.C2$2.3A3.3A2$A4.A.A4.A$A4.A.A4.A$A4.A.A4.A2$2.3A3.3A2$2.3A3.3A2$A4.A.A4.A$A4.A.A4.A$A4.A.A4.A2$2.3A3.3A2$.C.C.C.C.C.C! Unfortunately a p4 or p5 sparker doesn't quite work -- not that it would be easy to find a sparker like that even at p4 or p5, and p10 isn't really within reach of current search utilities. We do have true-period p20 guns, so possibly there's a way to make useful sparks with carefully positioned sparking eaters or something. (I don't see how, but I'm wrong a lot about this kind of thing.) Short summary: it seems hard to suppress the one key birth without an unreasonable lot of high-period sparks. There aren't any successful stabilizations of this agar in the p20 section of Dean Hickerson's collection, jslife, or the jslife supplement. That doesn't necessarily mean it's new, it just means I can't immediately find any prior art (and at least it seems that no one has successfully stabilized it). EDIT: Except they have, twice now! See following messages. I'm not very good at oscillator stabilizations, so I probably shouldn't say anything... but maybe it would be safer to just be happy with the infinite agar: Code: Select all x = 141, y = 167, rule =

Unfortunately a p4 or p5 sparker doesn't quite work -- not that it would be easy to find a sparker like that even at p4 or p5, and p10 isn't really within reach of current search utilities.

It seems like a p5 sparker actually would — there's a placement of sparks that merely creates a non-interacting domino spark in gen 6 instead of ruining everything — and there's even a sparker in jslife that nearly fits the bill but requires an impossible weld (involving a Coolout Conjecture counterexample) to be made work.
