Really interesting! Not sure what practical use it might have that differs from a more typical sparker — the spark isn't really robust enough to be likely to withstand multiple interactions. I would imagine this to be the first of its class, at least at low-to-medium period — hopefully not the last!

As a side note, the rightmost segment of the rotor can be stabilized on its own, making a fairly small billiard table which may or may not be known:

That's present in jslife's o0007-bil.lif, and I actually selected that completion manually after a certain point in the search.

For some strange reason it doesn't seem to be in jslife or the jslife-osc-supplement, but it is in DRH-oscillators (Golly Patterns/Life/Oscillators/DRH-oscillators.rle)

Please post this in a relevant thread, for example Thread for basic questions. If you can't get the Python script posted above to work, there's actually a Lua script that comes with Golly which you can find at Scripts/Lua/giffer.lua, which should work assuming your version of Golly is up-to-date.

Indeed, finding a p12 "source" for this ant-like wick is probably out of reach with current technology. I am not currently aware of a p6 source, but I suspect one could be found with some effort.

Bullet51 found a stationary fencepost for the other side of this wick in 2016 (see here). I know that Josh Ball (velcrorex) has found some interesting fenceposts to various wicks over the last decade, but I don't have immediate references.

Cross-posting from here, a Rich's p16 on tumbler is a 50p112 (note gen 46):
`x = 18, y = 13, rule = B3/S233b2o\$2bo2bo\$bo2bo\$bo6bo4bo2b2o\$o2bo3bobo4bo2bo\$b3o3b2o5b2obo2\$b3o3b2o5b2obo\$o2bo3bobo4bo2bo\$bo6bo4bo2b2o\$bo2bo\$2bo2bo\$3b2o!`

Similarly, Rich's p16 interacts with twin bees shuttle forming a 62p368 (note gen 30~37):
`x = 13, y = 46, rule = B3/S233b2o5b2o\$3b2o5b2o16\$2b2obo3bob2o\$2bo2bo3bo2bo\$3b3o3b3o8\$3b2o\$3b2o5\$3b2o\$2bo2bo\$bo2bo\$bo6bo\$o2bo3bobo\$b3o3b2o2\$b3o3b2o\$o2bo3bobo\$bo6bo\$bo2bo\$2bo2bo\$3b2o!`

A collection of how Rich's p16 can combine with other oscillators. This is a highly trivial p425040.

Period 3 oscillators are extremely plentiful and are very easy to find. They are rarely worth noting unless they have some particularly useful or notable characteristics (e.g. easily accessible sparks, cheap synthesis, occur commonly in soups, etc.)

Al Jolson's two-block hasseling mechanism can adapt to Merzenich's p31:
`x = 26, y = 39, rule = B3/S237b2obo2bob2o\$2o4bo2bo4bo2bo4b2o\$2o5bobo4bobo5b2o\$8bo6bo6\$8bo6bo\$2o5bobo4bobo5b2o\$2o4bo2bo4bo2bo4b2o\$7b2obo2bob2o5\$14b3o\$13b3obo\$12b2obobo\$16bo4\$10bobo2bobo\$8b2o2b4o2b2o\$2b2o5b2o6b2o5b2o\$2b2o6bo6bo6b2o8\$2b2o6bo6bo6b2o\$2b2o5b2o6b2o5b2o\$8b2o2b4o2b2o\$10bobo2bobo!`

Why do we need to mention "but p14 (by hitting the sides of the pentadecathlons with 34P14 shuttles) is not possible" in Al Jolson's wiki page?
EDIT: Oh I understand. That sentence needs some new wording.

Nice! This other mechanism (previously known for pentadecathlons) works as well:

This mechanism can work with any period 9 or higher oscillator with a sufficiently remote domino spark. It works for pentadecathlons, and also snackers. Oddly, it does NOT work for tetradecathlons, because the phase-shifting process intrudes on the reaction.
A for awesome wrote:Nice! This other mechanism (previously known for pentadecathlons) works as well: ...

This should also work with any period 5 or higher oscillator with a sufficiently remote domino spark. It works for pentadecathlons, snackers, and tetradecathlons, but not fumaroles or heavyweight volcanoes. Some of the large P5 or higher domino sparkers might work.
