Re: cellular automata according to Max Planck

The whole point of Science is that anyone's work can be replicated by anyone else so by virtue of understanding, we are systematically liquidating our ignorance.....

Re: HBK Synth and Gun (script)

I also wonder what's interesting in that script except of disproportionately extensive and ineffective usage of very large amount of glider guns? I also think I've found a small bug - so the script didn't produce HBK afterall, this is why the first real HBK gun belongs to Chris. Speaking of HBK gun...
