### Thread for Your Accidental Discoveries that Aren't in CGOL

Posted:

**April 16th, 2010, 6:54 pm**This is the thread for your accidental discoveries that aren't in Conway's Game of Life (to complement the other thread). In HighLife, this concept can be used to construct arbitrarily high-period oscillators:

EDIT: Found out that this doesn't work. This does:

No it doesn't! This actually does:

But that only works in certain situations. Two molds can be used in other situations. (That last sentence was based off of David Bell's text.)

This converts a replicator into a bomber (based on the above):

LWSS synthesis:

I also accidentally found the "Ruler Rule" posted earlier.

Post anything else of note that is found accidentally and is not in Conway's Game of Life.

Code: Select all

`x = 5, y = 12, rule = B36/S23`

This converts a replicator into a bomber (based on the above):

Code: Select all

`x = 9, y = 13, rule = B36/S23`

LWSS synthesis:
