### Re: Help with names

Two questions:
1.Why are Catacryst and Metacatacryst are named so?Is it related to "catalyst" and "crystal"?
2.How many ways are there in which two 34P13s can share one or two common blocks if we consider different phases?And how to tell them apart besides apgcodes?What if there are more?

Someone please find a use for this:

Code: Select all

x = 9, y = 7, rule = B3/S23

1. Most likely.
2. There are 3 ways two of these can share blocks: in a straight line, at right angles, or both simultaneously. Both oscillators can have one of 13 different phase separations between the (+0..+12), but since they are both the same, and all 3 kinds of interactions are symmetrical, symmetry reduces this to 7 distinct ones (+0..+6). The block cannot eat both oscillators simultaneously, so +0 is never viable. The other 6 (+1..+6) are viable when one block is shared, but +1 and +3 don't work when both blocks are shared, yielding 16 viable sharings:

Why is the name given to an oscillator instead of a spaceship that really looks like a floating island?
Lilly Petunias

comes from Gulliver's Travels

Petunias spit

Poppys pop off

Pansys are now "gay"

Poseys posers and wannabes
