Hello, Luis141114, and welcome to LifeWiki!

Please read notability guidelines before adding your own discoveries. Normally it's a good idea to ask in the forum, whether your discoveries are novel.

Enjoy playing the Game of Life!

"Glider explosion"

Hello, Luis,

glider explosion is not notable. All 2-glider collisions are known, you can find all of them in Golly's pattern collection under Patterns/Life/Syntheses/two-glider-collisions.rle. Your "glider explosion" is not a valid 2-glider collision, because in this case gliders cannot come from infinity into this position, because they would interact earlier.

It's not notable as a methuselah as well, because 132 generations is too few for a 10-cell methuselah.

I can understand your excitement and desire for discovery. I could recommend you to try apgsearch script written by Adam P. Goucher (aka calcyman on forums). Recently a newcomer discovered a world-shaking pattern using this tool. If you're lucky, you might also find something like that.

I sincerely feel sorry for you, but I'm going to delete your article. Please don't take it personally.

Thank you for your interest in the Game of Life. And I definitely recommend you to check out apgsearch.
