Re: Thread for basic questions

How can I use slow gliders to reflect a LWSS 90° like this? (the spacing doesn't matter):

Code: Select all

x = 24, y = 28, rule = LifeHistory

Re: Largest total uncomputable function competition

Assuming your function is defined, its strength would still be less than ω_1 (we can remove the CK because all admissible ordinals of countable order are countable) because you can view it as the diagonalization across f_ω_α(n)^CK, where α(n) is the minimum order of the busy beaver equivalent for n ...

I tried experimenting, and I'm not sure that it's actually the grid edge that's causing the first problem.

I'm fairly confident you can't define a fundamental sequence for ω_1^CK in a finite number of bits, since otherwise you could use the representation to compute the sequence and thus the Busy Beaver function. Also, getting a function with growth rate ω_1 is problematic, since ω_1 has no fundamental s...

If for you, universes mean what I think they mean (each universe is a copy of the "dimension ascend" structure with the power to oracle any lower universe), then it would only be ω_(ω^(ω+1))^CK (in the future, I'll ignore the ω_^CK bit for convenience). Of course, you can add dimensions of universes...
