- Not to be confused with blonker.
Blonk is a collective term for either a block or a blinker. It is primarily used in the context of sparse Life, and was coined by Rich Schroeppel in September 1992; the name is due to the fact that all triplets of live cells either die or form blinkers or blocks in one generation.
