DotLife is a Life-like cellular automaton in which live cells survive if they 0, 2 or 3 life neighbors, and dead cells are born if they have exactly 3 life neighbors; that is, it has rulestring "B3/023". DotLife is an explosive, chaotic rule: most randomly-generated starting patterns grow without limit, enveloped in a cloud of escaping gliders and other spaceships, and growing patterns continue to show internal evolution.
