LowDeath rule

Rule integer 137544
Character Chaotic
Black/white reversal B123478/S134678

LowDeath is a Life-like cellular automaton in which cells survive from one generation to the next if they have 2, 3 or 8 neighbours, and are born if they have 3, 6 or 8 neighbours.


Many patterns from HighLife are compatible with this rule. HighLife's replicator works in this rule, albeit with a different evolution sequence due to the result of Pedestrian Life's pedestrian effect.


There is a proof sketch of LowDeath's universality. It is on conwaylife forums[1], which contains a proof-scheme covering all rules that support glider and their rulestring matches B3[678]*/S23[678]*.
