This should help with the various Chop Suey still lifes, though I'm not sure what an efficient way to build the scaffolding would be: RLE 1-glider reduction on activation, at any rate: RLE I'm sure there's a far cheaper scaffold that works like this, if you can create the MWSS-or-equivalent in plac...

Re: Synthesising Oscillators

If there's a way to covert a [8.5] to [10.4], then it should be possible to convert the [14P2.18] into [16P2.79]. Similarly, a conversion in the other direction could reduce [18.475] . RLE Unfortunately, that is an exercise for the student, as neither conversion seems to be available, at least in m...
