From another list: Conway's life not only lives - now it can evolve.
-------- Original Message --------
Dave Green has put together a replicator for Conway Life.
He has several versions. The smallest, fastest, has a
bounding box of 3.7M^2, and takes 89M ticks to make a copy.
If I'm reading his description correctly, the population of ON
cells is 150K, most of which is information-carrying gliders.
----- Forwarded message
The phase-shifted linear replicator is finally done -- several
versions, actually, all using the same single-arm universal
constructor and the same basic recipe. See
The smallest pattern file is only 27K compressed, but the uncompressed
macrocell file is almost 100K so I won't try quoting it here. There
are links in the forum posting.
Keep the cheer,
