### Re: Create your own terminology

What should a component that turns a hat into xs16_c8al96z311 be called? Add against loaf? Add hang loaf?
I have historically worked on conduits, but recently, I've been working on glider syntheses and investigating SnakeLife.

### Re: Create your own terminology

A cutout synthesis is one where all the cells of the object that one wants to synthesize are already there, and one is simply removing all surrounding cells. Example cutout synthesis for a glider:

Code: Select all

``````x = 20, y = 11, rule = B3/S23
2bo6bo\$obo7bo2bo\$b2o5b3obo\$12b3o\$4b2o\$3bobo2b2o\$5bo2bobob2o\$10bobobo\$
10b2o2bo4bo\$14b2ob2o\$18b2o!
``````
EDIT: Example cutout synthesis for an LWSS:

Code: Select all

``````x = 21, y = 19, rule = B3/S23
17bo\$15b2o\$16b2o2\$2bo\$obo10bo\$b2o7bobobo3b2o\$6b2obob2obo2bobo\$7bobo3b
o3bo\$6bo2b4o3b2o\$6b2o\$11b2o5b3o\$b2o8b2o5bo\$obo16bo\$2bo2\$7b3o\$9bo\$8bo!
``````
I skip the back spark since it's not needed for the LWSS to survive in the long term.

"BTL": A suggested name for xp0_27x33, or its ash. The name is a pun on "block + TL predecessor collision" and "blinker with loaf". Not to be confused with "BTC" or "BTS".

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\$

This shall be known as cis-Cerberus:

Code: Select all

``````x = 5, y = 6, rule = B3/S23

This shall be known as trans-Cerberus:

So this would be cerberus weld bridge snake?

Code: Select all

``````x = 9, y = 8, rule = B3/S23

I've seen this in guns and circuitry when an extra lane of clearance is needed:

Code: Select all

``````x = 15, y = 10, rule = B3/S23
12bobo\$12b2o\$6b2o5bo\$o5bo2b2o\$b2o4b2obo\$2o6bo\$8bo\$9b2o\$11bob2o\$11b2obo

4. Hole spark. One generation is a loaf with one cell missing, and other is a beehive with one cell missing. (How do we not have a name for this yet if it's so common?)
That is called the L spark, e.g. in two pre-L hasslers:

Code: Select all

``````x = 24, y = 16, rule = B3/S23
4b2o12b2o\$4o4b2o4b2o4b4o\$3ob2o2b2o4b2o2b2ob3o\$5bo12bo2\$9b2o\$9b2o\$8b3o\$

2o!

specifically cis-cerberus weld trans bridge snake in order to differentiate it from the following:

Code: Select all

``````x = 29, y = 8, rule = B3/S23
