Re: Thread For Your Useless Discoveries

Gustavo's parasite outbreak idea gave me some inspiration to create this "pseudo breeder". It creates parasites until it reaches the "cap" of allowed parasites on the stream. Stretch the rake even more to further increase the number of parasites.

Re: Gustavo Ramos Rehermann's patterns

The rake parasit is in development state, I got a salvo that once hits both gliderstreams of mirrored rakes, and a "last hope" (a single escaping glider) from the latter hit simply vanish in the other stream. Plan B: using unstable patterns and ultra-low period rakes. This doesn't make much sense.....

This is called the "high period glider crystal". A crystal is created when spaceships of any type collide objects so that the leftover junk doesn't collide. The shape of the crystal depends on the rate of ships, but past a certain period all periods have the same crystal. The crystal you've shown is...

Re: Thread for your unsure discoveries

The result is not that bad: 2 LWSSs can create a glider and a MWSS can destroy them. Also, there is a helpful reaction in which a LWSS can "push forward" the blinkers, allowing some degrees of freedom. x = 72, y = 70, rule = B3/S23 9$7bo$7bo53bo$7bo20b3o30bo$61bo$9b3o14bo$26bo30b3o$7bo18bo$6b3o$5b2o...

Re: Thread for your unsure discoveries

Darts can trigger the "pushing" reaction of a beehive. It is slow-salvo friendly, as every reactions seen are short and don't collide the next. Unfortunately, the long cycle ends up producing half-TLS (but far from the main reaction. The next cycle's TLs collide them, as it is a very slow impush: it...

So you've made a 163-cell predecessor to the sawtooth, but still only with a minimum repeating population of 201.

I would have a suggestion for agpsearch/catagolue:
If catagolue is unreachable, can you make agpsearch store the data on the computer, then transmit it (and erase it) when internet comes back? I've lost something like 20 million soups because of this.

For that option, I think the best (only?) example in Conway's Life is Jason Summers' traffic-jam extruder (in Golly's Signal-Circuitry collection). Use goto.py to run it forward to a relatively interesting moment, say T=9576000. Then maybe watch it run in LifeHistory to see what's going on. One of ...

Yes, that's what I meant. In some sense, such a wick would be a unidirectional replicator (it would replicate itself but only on one end). EDIT: Alternatively, there might be a pattern, that makes a "wave" propagating through a wick and elongating it on the other end. It HAS to be "pulses". If it i...
