For a n-cell polyplet in Life, what is the specific n-cell polyplet that takes the most cells to stabilize? This is excluding Coolout Conjecture examples. For n = 1, 2, 3, and 4, the solutions are 4, 4, 7, and 13 respectively, with the polyplet with maximal stabilization in white:

Code: Select all

`x = 6, y = 25, rule = LifeHistory`

CA$2A5$2A$2C4$2.2A$3.A$3C$A5$4.2A$2A3.A$A2.C$2.3C$5.A$4.2A!

Does anyone understand what I mean? I think this might be an interesting problem, but I really don't know. Feel free to ask questions.
