Isn't there as infinite number of 3-glider collisions? You could use two of the gliders to generate a B-heptomino, which in turn creates two gliders, and then you could put the third glider to collide with one of these two gliders from arbitrarliy far away?

Not necessarily a B-heptomino, a kickbacked glider or a TL+glider or even the 2-glider mess would do so. That idea is not new, as Dave Greene mentioned in this post. The collisions registered into the database are those small and probably useful ones. GUYTU6J (talk) 10:57, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
But then it's impossible to "exhausively" explore all 3-glider collisions. Ultimium (talk) 14:20, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
