A lightspeed ship, rake, or puffer in a cylindrical universe can be made simply by making a vertical line and moving around a few of the pixels.

I believe this is the smallest possible one:
x = 2, y = 2, rule = B3/S23:T0,2
o\$2o!

other, larger ones can be made by moving pixels in a way that prevents symmetry.

Thanks. I thought it was aperiodic... Also, I'm having trouble using Python 2.7 on golly. Could anyone help?

Which version of Golly are you using? Which platform (eg. Windows)? What error messages are you getting? Can you run any scripts, or none at all? The more details you can provide the more likely I can give you a solution.

Is it worth adding this discovery I made of a parent of the R-pentomino that
is five cells and fits in the same sized box as its famous child to the
R-pentomino page?
The page mentions grandparents and predecessors, but not this parent.

x = 3, y = 3, rule = B3/S23

I discovered this pattern that becomes the R-pentomino at the ninth generation.

The R-pentomino is a "bottleneck" pattern with an incredible number of predecessors, small and large. The larger ones are common enough that I would think there'd have to be something else interesting about them to rate a mention on the LifeWiki page.

Your five-cell parent is certainly noteworthy, but also well-known -- that evolution into the R-pentomino occurs twice in a standard Herschel transceiver, for example, and at least once in most known Herschel circuits (i.e., all the ones that have the snake-and-transparent-block combination discovered by Dave Buckingham in July 1996, which tames an output B-heptomino by converting it to an R-pentomino).

I think it would be great to have that five-cell predecessor included in R-Pentomino // Predecessors, with maybe a reference link to "Conduit 1" / "Herschel conduit"... this whole area of the LifeWiki needs a lot of work, which I just haven't been able to find the time for yet. Things may open up a bit in the next year, though (knock on wood)!

All the three grandparents that the page mentions become this pattern in generation one, so it's obviously not a new discovery.

I found this soup on one of my machines this morning. It runs for 20513 generations
and obviously doesn't break any records. What is interesting is that it is easy to
reduce it to two loaves, a beehive and the r-pentomino, then reduce the cell count
by replacing the still life with their predecessors for a total of nineteen cells.
The run length is then 20479.

x = 20, y = 20, rule = B3/S23

By replacing the R-pentomino with a 2-generation predecessor and advancing the leftmost loaf predecessor by one generation, one can increase the lifespan and decrease the bounding box of the initial pattern with no detriment to the initial population:

Code: Select all

``````x = 18, y = 21, rule = B3/S23
o9bo\$o8b2o\$3o6bo5b2o\$16b2o\$17bo14\$3bo\$3bo\$4b3o!``````

I'm still hoping that the Soup Search will someday turn up a simple seed pattern, along lines similar to this constellation, that appears in its own output and is successfully re-triggered by a glider -- or some other active pattern, but a glider seems the most likely. Here's a 40K+ methuselah-fuse to give the idea:

Code: Select all

``````#C two chained copies of 20K methuselah seed
x = 18, y = 346, rule = LifeHistory
A9.A\$A8.2A\$3A6.A5.2A\$16.2A\$17.A15\$8.A\$8.A\$8.3A304\$A9.A\$A8.2A\$3A6.A5.
2A\$16.2A\$17.A14\$3.A\$3.A\$4.3A!
``````
A seed like the four-still-life seed at the top would have to be generated as part of the ash from the previous reaction, and other ash would have to stay out of the way (this is the unlikely part, of course.) Still, I wouldn't be surprised if there's another self-sustaining chain reaction out there somewhere, like a higher-period switch engine, producing unbounded population growth. The line of travel might be diagonal or orthogonal if the output is glide-symmetric, or oblique if it's a direct translation.

Ahah!

I am new to the idea of bounding box area otherwise I would have sought to minimize it.
I thought about using R-pentomino predecessors but decided that would be frivolous given the
beauty and instant recognition of R.

I'm back (at least for a little bit)! An interesting (and obsolete) synthesis:

Code: Select all

``````x = 134, y = 129, rule = B3/S23
116bo\$bo114bobo\$2bo113b2o\$3o19\$128bo\$127bo\$127b3o11\$46bo\$44bobo\$45b2o

64bobo\$62bobobobo\$62b2o3b2o13\$62b4o\$61bo3bo\$65bo\$61bo2bo3\$73b2o\$74b2o\$

o\$116bo!
``````
I can't figure out how to synthesize the LWSS, however.

EDIT: Just found this little doohickey:

Code: Select all

``````x = 10, y = 43, rule = B3/S23
7b2o\$7bobo\$8bo7\$o\$obo\$3o\$2bo4\$6b2o\$6b2o8\$6b2o\$6b2o4\$2bo\$3o\$obo\$o7\$8bo\$
7bobo\$7b2o!
``````
Also, a partial synthesis for the tumbler from the soup:

Code: Select all

``````x = 46, y = 44, rule = B3/S23
9bo\$10bo\$8b3o\$45bo\$35bobo5b2o\$35b2o7b2o\$36bo7\$19bobo\$19b2o\$20bo7\$6bo\$

20x20 soup which runs for 630 generations and leaves nothing at all in it's final census:

EDIT: A different soup which produces a tumbler in (I think) an entirely different way to the one a few posts ago:
