Re: Methuselah Definition

I'm pretty sure that stabilization implies a cyclic population. Can you find a source to support that? A reasonable source is the Life Lexicon definition of "methuselah", which lists seven example methuselahs, none of which produce final patterns that are stable in the sense of being period 1. The ...

Methuselah Definition

As far as I know no two people agree on the same definition for methuselah. The purpose of this thread is to establish a formal agreed upon definition. I propose: A Methuselah is a pattern witch fits in a 20 by 20 Bounding box that takes more than 1000 generations to regularize, it can (but dosent h...
