This means that not all of the pattern's parents contain the same orphan.

Did I get the transcription wrong somewhere, or did I misunderstand the verification process? It appeared as if the 622 common cells were what was run through JLS to prove that none of the parent patterns had parents.

Seems as if the alternative would be to run a predecessor check on each of the 17920 parent patterns independently...?

Notice that the second .jdf file searches for a pattern that is not only a parent of the 622-cell pattern, but also a grandparent of the grandparentless pattern. If you reduce the search to period 2, then it will find a parent to the 622-cell pattern. So the 622-cell pattern isn't an orphan itself, but adding a few cells somewhere will make it an orphan, and those cell additions are necessary to allow it to evolve into the grandparentless pattern.

This is essentially what's being done by JLS, but they're all part of the same search. I just ran the 1-generation predecessor search, because I hoped that knowing those cells would reduce the time needed for the 2-generation search.

I'll run some more searches to double-check the result, but I'm fairly convinced that this pattern has no grandparents.

This might be a program that's easy to work and check:

Also simeks seems to have something related for predecessor searching:

Congrats on the solution to this old problem!

Obviously the next challenge would be to generalize the grandparent problem to any amount of generations:

Given N - number of generation, find a pattern (or prove non-existence) that has predecessors in all N-1 generations but none in generation N.

I was pretty quick to try my program on the pattern mtve posted. But as I expected it is much too big for my program to handle. It generates all predecessors in parallel.
This works by making lists of all possible predecessor in each 3-by-3 box, and then joining pairs of sub-areas and correlating the associated lists, until only one area remains. Somewhere in that process the computer will often run out of memory for a big pattern, and that's what happened here.

Not sure if this is useful or not, but maybe this could be used as part of a sawtooth: Fx77b reeling in a block.

The input herschel will cleanly delete the block in two out of three cases, but since it is a pull3 reaction the third case doesn't work with the herschel:

The wiki is very limited source. There is no point to "find" some X bit still life - there are billions of those.

Your SL was actually named by scrobie - elk, not sure where did this name came from.

Named by gmc_nxtman, and it (, dimerized,) is similar but slightly different from the still life above.
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1878&hilit=statistics&start=50#p25178
It was named as I was getting name recommendations to various catalysts, and this 'Elk' appears in the useful edgeshooting H2G (or B2G).

Still, this does not change your point.

These orphans were constructed by filling in those two red cells that were disconnected from the boundary in the 622-cell pattern. Only two of the four possible choices result in an orphan: specifically, one cell has to be ON and the other OFF. If both are set ON or both are set OFF, then the pattern is not an orphan, but also cannot be part of a grandparent of mtve's pattern.

I also cut off some cells on the left side of mtve's pattern and found that this pattern (not including red border cells) also has on grandparents :

It may be possible to remove more border cells while retaining the grandparentless property.

It appears it became just a GoE, didn't it?

It is possible to remove more cells indeed, and I'm quite sure smallest pattern could be found with genetic optimizations, like most probably Steven Eker did in his recent records of small GoEs.

Just for the history, here is another no-grandparent:
.XX....X.X....XX...?????
...X.....XXX...X...?X.??
XXXXX....XX..XX.X....XXX
XX.XX....XXXX..XX....XXX
XXXX.X...XXX.X.XX.XXX..?
X.X....XX.XX..X.X...XX??

.XXXX.XXXXX.X..XXXXX???.

No, it still has parents. Here is one:

Do you want to name your original grandparentless pattern? I've been referring to it as "mtve's pattern" or "grandparentless pattern" which are awkward. Sticking with the biblical theme set by "Garden of Eden", a fitting name might be "Cain".

I was thinking "Mountain of Eden".

You're right, my mistake.

Second order/generation GoE, GoE^2, GoE-2g, "Fruits of Eden" maybe.

GoE2g#1 bounding box size was 23x24, GoE2g#2 was 24x25 and GoE2g#3 is 22x22:
?XXX...........X.X.XXX
?X..XX.XXX.....X...X.X
?X.X.XXXX..X.X...XXX.X
?.X.XXXX.XXX...X.XX.X.
?.XX.XX....X.XXXXXXXXX

X....X.XXXXXX.XXX.X.X.
X.X.XXX...X.X..XXX.X.X
.XX...X.XX..X.XX.X...X

By a number of cells and on-cells the leader is still GoE2g#1, that was reduced to rusty beast with strange "tails" from one side:
XXXXXXXX.?XXXX.XXXX.
X.X..XX..XXX..XXXX.
XX.X.XXXX.XXXX.XX.X?.

However, I wouldn't be surprised if there is something smaller, seeing as 500 is a very round number.

This does make an improvement on the current p250 gun, however.

Also seemingly this improved p668:

Not going to be rude, but can anybody answer my corderpuffer question?
My name is a methuselah with a lifetime of 369, and produces 1 bakery 1 traffic lights, 4 blinkers(excluding the lights),1 loaf(again, excluding the bakery),2 boats, 2 beehives, 3 blocks.

I don't think these are smaller than those in the collection here. There you can find:

476 (4130, 'p00436_5')
500 (4526, 'p00436_8')
668 (5487, 'p00652b_2')


I tried to explain what this means here.

Recently I found another couple of small guns based on your Herschel conduit work. A p93 based on a p558 loop and a p568:

Probably known.

Yes, that may not be a really satisfying answer, but it's probably all anybody has. There are so many 4-engine corderpuffers that nobody has them all memorized, or catalogued.

If anybody wants a c/12 puffer that puts out pairs of blocks with exactly 55fd separation, they'll probably write a one-off script to search though the likely engine placements and see what comes up. Dean Hickerson spent a lot of time looking at the search space containing that puffer in the early 1990s, but may not have constructed that exact variant.

However, have a look at the central Cordership in Golly's Patterns/Life/Spaceships/corderships.rle. If you remove the four trailing switch engines you'll get a block-pair-laying Corderpuffer very similar to yours. The central pair of engines is identical, but the block spacing is 57fd instead of 55fd.

You can get other spacings by making small adjustments to the outer engines -- there are three degrees of freedom (X, Y, and relative timing) and those outside blocks are pretty much what cooperating switch engines produce naturally.

Or you can reduce the number of switch engines -- see Dean Hickerson's 7-engine Cordership from 1993, on the southeast edge of corderships.rle, for a block-pair puffer with 42fd spacing. It uses three switch engines in a glide-symmetric orientation, so the blocks are offset by four cells diagonally. (I think the 8-engine one in the center was from 1998, oddly enough, but the basic idea of working with different widths of block-pair puffers showed up in 1991.)

Maybe this is known, but it isn't mentioned in the Wiki.

23334M which is listed as a 12 cell methuselah, has this 11 cell equivalent form in the same 5-by-8 bounding box (original to the left, 11 cell form to the right):

x = 37, y = 8, rule = LifeHistory
2.A29.A$2A31.2A$.A31.A$A2.A$4.A30.2A$.A2.A28.A2.A$2.A.A31.A$.A31.2A!

Edit:
@Nathaniel: Thanks!
And, another 11 cell, 5-by-8 that lasts longer (18034 gens) that Bunnies 11:

x = 8, y = 5, rule = LifeHistory
3.A3.A$5.3A$4A2.A2$.A!
