Methuselah from Gliders

Postby wylx » July 1st, 2010, 5:19 pm

Hi,

I just found out about Conway's Game of Life yesterday and found this forum today. I am extremely fascinated by this game.

While playing around with glider patterns, I found this pattern of two adjacent gliders that is a methuselah stabilizing in 1,147 generations as 14 blinkers, 24 blocks, 4 beehives, and 2 boats. I'm not sure if it has been discovered yet; it does not match any of the patterns of 10 cells listed in LifeWiki.

I notice that the posts in many of the other threads in the forum contain patterns apparently represented by a code. Unfortunately, I can't discern what the code is, so I'll have to present this pattern as an attachment; sorry about that!

The pattern you listed is not really made of gliders, since there is no separation between the cells.

The code is useful if you are using a life program such as golly. Copy and paste a code like that into golly, and it will be converted into a pattern.

That looks...extremely complicated. Can someone just inform me a little on what it basically does?

It is a computer program that runs the game of life.

It's a cellular automata simulation program that does, among many other things, the same things as the applet on this site (also much faster).

Your quadpole synthesis is impressive!
What do you do with ill crystallographers? Take them to the mono-clinic!
