I would like to see this thread used again,but please stick with CA fun facts.
Have a good day!

OK.
There is a 21-cell pure glider generator in Life whose initial configuration consists entirely of lone dots, but
it is currently not known whether there is a smaller one.

Code: Select all

``````x = 21, y = 21, rule = LifeColorful
11.E\$10.3E\$10.E.2E\$13.E4\$2.2B\$.2B\$2B\$.2B15.2D\$19.2D\$18.2D\$17.2D4\$7.C\$
7.2C.C\$8.3C\$9.C!``````
I have reduced the glider cost of quadratic growth to eight and probably to seven. Looking for conduits...

Now there is (10 dots):

Code: Select all

``````x = 6, y = 7, rule = B3/S23

I'm compiling a list of fun facts.

Code: Select all

``````x = 21, y = 21, rule = LifeColorful
11.E\$10.3E\$10.E.2E\$13.E4\$2.2B\$.2B\$2B\$.2B15.2D\$19.2D\$18.2D\$17.2D4\$7.C\$
