That is actually 12c/26.
Things to work on:
- Find a (7,1)c/8 ship in a Non-totalistic rule (someone please search the rules)
- Find a C/10 in JustFriends

I know, but what I realized was that the boats end up in the same place. Maybe not a coincidence. Also, wiki tags provide links to the wiki? :o

I can't verify, but I'm tempted to say yes-- It's a reaction between a b and a block.
Technically, though, as the B leaves its block, it's not a conduit. You could string it up to conduit 1, however, to get a true conduit.

Here is a useless collision that could be thought of as glider bowling.

15bo$15bo$15bo3$14b2o$14b2o$18b2o$14b2o2b2o$14b2o9$b2o$obo$2bo!


I can't do much with that, but it is rare to find a collision that preserves all the components. The initial cluster is "natural" in the sense that I got it by generating small starting seeds. Before we had examples of stable reflectors, it was speculated that a reflector could be a magic glider-preserving self-restoring cluster (with the parts back in the right place unlike this). It is very unlikely once you get beyond blocks and blinkers, and those don't work as reflectors.

I am not sure the space has been fully explored to find clusters that are not exactly the same but can be used for later collisions with single gliders. Add catalysts, and eventually you get a stable reflector, but catalysts also take up diagonals. Anyway... I am trying to find something useful this way. Still trying.

Here are some collisions between gliders and natural clusters that produce a glider, an spaceship and not much additional debris. I don't know if all or any are new. Is anyone else looking for these? They are not very useful but could be part of a slow synthesis.

Well, the point is not to produce extra junk. If you could keep the block and blinker in the same place along with extra junk, that would be more interesting, though also useless.

Here's a possibly useful resettable glider shifter that I found around 1994 (first as far as I know) and forgot about for years.

x = 81, y = 80

I don't remember how it came up, but it is based on this reaction with a block catalyst and I put the other catalyst in a symmetric location.
x = 19, y = 14, rule = B3/S23

Useless because of what it would take to set up the three blocks, but I have never seen a glider act like such a honey badger. It comes out on the same diagonal, delayed by only 14 steps if I'm counting right. Trailing glider is just for reference.

x = 37, y = 35, rule = B3/S23
