Re: Quantum Computer

[B2367/S3478] I think this rule demonstrably simulates a complex plane fractal geometry hypervisor for an octagonal signal fanout (with a single point of pure density in the origin). It is fragile, however, because if you modify a single cell in the pattern outside of the noise-resistant wires they...

Re: Life 'Snap Circuits'

I was hoping for this to use entirely stable circuitry, so no synchronization would be needed. Not necessarily. You still have to synchronise different signals if you want to make a logic gate (even if the signals are streams of gliders rather than single gliders). I'd imagine you'd want to make al...

Re: Wire2: A Superset of Brian's Brain

I have compressed my old register design: #C A 4-bit register. It takes the presence or absence of 4 photons in a p12 stream as the input. This can be used to convert loop memory to a form of data which is easier to do combinational logic on. x = 217, y = 67, rule = Wire2 72.BCB10.ACA24.ABA10.CBC24....
