Here's one: Why is the quadpole more common than the tripole?

x = 8, y = 7, rule = B3/S23
b2o$o2bo$3bo$3bo$5b2o$5bobo$6b2o!


Also why quadpole-on-ship is more common than the tripole.

I think I know:
x = 11, y = 10, rule = B3/S23
b2o$o2bo$3bo$3bo$5b2o$5bobo$6b2o$8b2o$8bobo$9b2o!

Also, if B37/S23 and B3/S023 explode, then why is B3678/S0235678 stable?

Maybe the B68/S5678 transitions have something to do with it.
Bored of using the Moore neighbourhood for everything? Introducing the Range-2 von Neumann isotropic non-totalistic rulespace!

Here's a riddle: why are naturally occuring objects rarer in symmetrical soups?

Because symmetrical soups encourage symmetrical objects, as a result reducing asymmetricals.
Also, if B345678/S4678 is stable, then why does B34567/S4678 explode?

Because CA dynamics are strange and not very straightforward at all. Removing a transition does not always result in less explosiveness, norr does adding one add to explosiveness.
