As mentioned in the quote, this looked promising for a conduit. This gave me an idea: Let's search random soups specifically looking for reactions like that that could potentially yield conduits.MathAndCode wrote: ↑November 17th, 2020, 6:04 pmBy the way, is that ∏ seen facing upwards at generation 235 extractable? I think that it's extractable. A signal from the fishhooks would have had to travel 16 rows in 19 generations in order to reach the bottom of the newly-formed ∏ (and 16 rows in 18 generations in order to reach the bottom of the ∏'s hexaplet parent), which is nearly the speed of light, and I think that that means that the ∏ is extractable. (The Elementary Conduits Collection only has two ∏→∏ conduits, and neither has a step time of 31.)

Here is a similar example from this soup.
