Life is enjoying a revival of activity as evidenced by recent reader response containing many amazing new discoveries. Specific among these are included a basically new type of puffer train which can be used to generate all kinds of objects including gliders(!), some exotic collisions involving only gliders and blocks which may be used to assemble new types of spaceship guns as well as build the logical circuitry for a Life computer, and many exciting oscillators including a predecessor for the tumbler! Some of this material is contained herein; however, additional time will be required in order to present all the findings in such a way so that they will compliment and reinforce work previously reported.
