### Re: B24/S13 (Von Neumann Neighborhood)

Sadly, no spaceships or expanding objects can exist in this rule. No spaceships can exist in any of those rules. To preserve the outer-totalistic nature of the rule, and to permit spaceships, a third state is required. Artem Dergachev discovered such a rule; here it is translated into a Golly rule ...

Have you seen the pattern in action? It physically builds the numbers out of blocks by firing massive glider salvos, and prints them in an infinitely long line northeast.
