Maze rule
Rulestring 12345/3
Character Miscellaneous

Maze is a Life-like cellular automaton in which cells survive from one generation to the next if they have at least 1 and at most 5 neighbours. Cells are born if they have exactly 3 neighbours.

This rule is notable because random starting patterns tend to evolve into complex maze-like structures with well-defined walls outlining corridors. It has no known spaceships[1].
