### Re: Synthesising Oscillators

When the oscillator was first found, I attempted a synthesis. Synthesizing the still-lifes on one side is quite easy, using standard boiler plate techniques; however, due to the directions where incoming gliders come from, making a second set of them close together would require much more complicat...

### Re: Synthesising Oscillators

FInal step for a David Hilbert variant.
