Re: List of the Turing-complete totalistic life-like CA

Novel Rule 110 simulator in Live Free or Die Impressive! That opens many new possibilities. I've thought about a flying Rule 110 unit cell consisting of some fast spaceships bouncing back and forth in a flotilla of slower spaceships, producing still lives or spaceships and thus printing Rule 110 pa...

Well, this is a regular XOR replicator.
