Twin bees shuttle

While the policy at LifeWiki is to list oscillators and spaceships with the fewest possible number of cells, this phase of twin bees shuttle does not meet that criterion, and as it required 56 cells and the given form of twin bees shuttle has 38. Furthermore, the method of constructing this version of the oscillator (with fewer blocks) is already explicitly described on the page for twin bees shuttle. This oscillator is in no way new, and we should never, EVER have multiple pages for separate phases of the same oscillator. Nathaniel 14:22, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
