Soup (or broth[1]) is a random initial pattern, often assumed to cover the whole Life universe.

Sparse Life

Sparse Life (also called, somewhat confusingly, early universe by John Conway) is the study of the evolution of a soup of vanishingly small density. Such a universe is dominated at an early stage by blocks and blinkers (collectively known as "blonks") in a ratio of about 2:1. Much later it will be dominated by simple infinite growth patterns. The long-term fate of a sparse Life universe is not certain.
