I agree with Codeholic. If the yl1152 gets a name, it should be a unique description of how the switch engines interact. It shouldn't be too hard to think of one.
Also, don't forget that the second switch engine can travel as far behind the first as it wants, because it only interacts with its debris after it stabilizes:
Code: Select all
x = 288, y = 345, rule = B3/S23
, which makes the list of possible future infinite growth patterns even bigger. In fact, I think there's a 95% chance the "Pony Express" won't occur again in another year.
If you really want to give it an arbitrary name, that's fine. It wouldn't be the first time, (for example,"candlefrobra" is an arbitrary name among the "_______ and long hook eating tub" series), but I was thinking something more descriptive, like "first natural ark" or something similar.

Perhaps I made this post too late.
