### Re: Soup search results

By the way, when you found the transparent fishhook reaction with the two-glider octomino, why were you searching for O-accepting conduits in the first place? If it's because you have conduits that make clean two-glider octominoes, then dvgrn, I, and probably others would be interested in seeing th...

For what it's worth, whenever a nice-looking new catalyst shows up, I throw it into a 2-catalyst CatForce search with spartan objects, with the input pattern being a Herschel. The results did not indicate a unique catalysis there. I vaguely remember that some glider + spartan object collisions produ...
