### Re: Small Spaceship Syntheses

AMAZING!!! How, though? I see blinkers in the final seed, which would make the LLS still life method useless. (I've also tried similar things using JLS instead of LLS. It didn't work for me.) Thanks! I'll try to give an explanation for how I found the synthesis. Sorry for not replying earlier. Actu...

Already this has brought the recipe down from 20 synchronized gliders to only 12. Single digits, anyone?

A demonoid could probably become asymptotic to the the diagonal speed limit of c/4 as well.

The more recent version of that synthesis takes 32 gliders — not...
