Read my post above; no - the slow-salvo construction and seed itself would already be way too challenging to construct, let alone clean the debris from the puffers.

Also, on the problem of aperiodic debris in the RCT puffers: The method for cleaning this debris up has to be encoded in the 35-glider recipe itself, making more aperiodic debris.

then your rct uc is bull*%#^
if it cant build anything

Reading this gives me a sudden urge to pick up the nearest heavy object and lunge it in your general direction.

SEE THE ****ING POST ABOVE LOL, dvgrn and calcyman both attempted to explain why the constructions would be too big. Long story short: It's a theoretical method, not truly meant to be used in practice.

EDIT: and it's not my RCT, go on lifewiki to search for attribution.

And then there's this.

Yes. (Although it doesn't have to be at the very end of the construction, provided you've already bootstrapped to the point that you no longer rely on the BLSE as your construction arm. A minimal-bounding-box RCT pattern would almost certainly use at least one -- and possibly multiple -- levels of bootstrapping, where it replaces the construction arm with a more efficient and complex alternative.)

During the construction, the idea is to direct the construction arm to place lots of one-time eaters in front of all of the GPSEs, so that they're 'caught' before they would otherwise do any damage. One of those eaters produces a glider as a byproduct, and that glider heads towards a seed constellation designed to initiate the 'post-construction' tasks such as removing the periodic debris left by the GPSEs.

This, and more, is all explained in Dave's summary:

We don't actually have a "bounded unknown fate" pattern, do we? ... Oh, bounded population, right. I suppose we could build a fixed-bounding-box unknown fate pattern, just by making it big enough. Do an N-bit PRNG with a cycle bigger than we can simulate, let's say, and then test for k consecutive 1's for some value of k that we're not sure will ever show up, but it might. Not sure that's very interesting, really.

The next higher Mersenne prime calculator, period 2^86243-1, would be fun to have. That would be fairly easy to do with quadri-Snarks plus our standard adjustment toolkits. Would that count? People seem to have been unnecessarily scared of building it, but it's really very simple. Could even re-use the base gun and tricky adjustable reset mechanism from the 2^44477-1 oscillator, but of course we have much more compact alternatives these days.

So what else might we want to calculate? We already went over a lot of the optimization details a couple years ago, in the discussion of fine structure constant calculator.

Do you have a handy list of everything in your current collection? Maybe that would help remind people of any gaps. Have you included Dean Hickerson's various mathematical constructions from [url]his Web pages[/url], mostly the "Unusual growth rates" ones?

Yes, I literally included EVERY interesting pattern I could find in this forum and saved it in Golly. Too big to attach all of them.

Re-reading that summary, I see there's technically one detail missing, and it's the hardest part of the cleanup problem. Before the six-Cordership fleet is built, and after the two gliders are sent ahead to stop the BLSE without letting any gliders escape, we'll probably also have to trigger a much larger seed, for a salvo that interacts with the terminal BLSE debris -- either to build clean one-time eaters for the six Corderships, or at least to provide something for them to crash into that doesn't allow any Corderships or gliders to escape.

As with the GPSEs, a second "meteor shower" can be arranged to follow along later and clean up any random junk left over at the BLSE crash site. The summary for GPSE cleanup implied that those cleanup Cordership fleets would be specially designed to crash into the junk at the beginning of the debris chains and stop themselves without letting any gliders out.

If that turns out not to be possible, then some gliders might have to be sent ahead to build clean one-time eaters for those Cordership fleets, just like for the BLSE case. Luckily that's a safe backup plan: there's a little extra debris sticking out to the side from the far ends of each of the periodic debris chains, that a glider salvo can get hold of to construct anything that might be wanted out there.

Sure, that should be fairly straightforward, with a file size about twice as big as a single 0E0P; calcyman explains how to do it here.

It totally works, but it’s not terribly useful otherwise.

So, think of it this way.
If you zoomed into a random 1000*1000 area in an RCT synthesis, the chances that you’ll see a glider are incredibly low.

@dvgrn or calcyman or somebody:
Is there a small bounding-box 35G RCT synth of, say, a block, if we don’t worry about:
Removing the excess junk
Anything else, save that the UCC must construct the block; it cannot be part of the junk.

Just a very simple proof-of-concept. Something that fits in lifeviewer (or, at least, is a reasonable size).

Might as well get the technicalities right: it's definitely several ridiculously distant gliders, namely the ones building the Sakapuffer. I think there are any number of possible starting locations for the glider that's bouncing back and forth between the two locations, basically producing a binary representation of the location of the Sakapuffer.

The GPSEs move at the same speed as the Sakapuffer and have to produce gliders to interact with every glider coming in from the Sakapuffer, so they'll have to start from equally far away, in various different directions. So the gliders constructing the GPSEs will also be ridiculously distant. The only gliders that could start near the eventual construction site would be the ones that build the BLSE elbow-block source (unless there turns out to be a way to use only 33 gliders, and skip the BLSE entirely).

Theory Vs. Practice
The issue that's showing up here is a very old problem, a deep division between mathematician-type people and engineer-type people. Engineers want to see real things actually working:

Here's a specific arrangement of Life cells, and when I run this specific search program on it I see that it's going through all the possible predecessors and none of them work, so it's a Garden of Eden -- beautiful!

Mathematicians are just as happy, or maybe happier, with non-constructive existence proofs:

A Garden of Eden must exist in an 1162907980-by-1162907980 square, so let's just make a big square that's 1162907980 * (2 ^ 676177484973840200) on a side. That pattern has to be a Garden of Eden, and we don't have to care which 1162907980-by-1162907980 squares are actually GoEs, or if there are GoEs smaller than that size -- beautiful!

Early Universality Proofs Were Like That
This is pretty much what Conway and Gosper did in their original 1970s-era proofs of the existence of universal constructors in Life. They never had any particular interest in actually building specific examples of self-replicating B3/S23 patterns, since they would have been far too big and complex to ever run through a full replication cycle. Those proofs were non-constructive existence proofs, but that was perfectly fine as far as they were concerned.

Then various unreasonable engineer-type people came along later and figured out how to build specific examples of self-constructing patterns. The engineers were much happier after that, but mathematicians like Conway were just puzzled: "yeah, we knew that was possible forty years ago -- why are you wasting time on this trivial stuff?"

RCT Recipes Are Actually Within Reach
The RCT mechanism is in a somewhat similar state at the moment, and a lot of people are reasonably contented to leave it like that.

However, probably if someone wanted to spend a few years on the problem, it would be possible to construct all the specific mechanisms needed to create an RCT recipe for a pulsar or loafer or spider or whatever.

And then if someone wrote a very customized RCT simulator program, and fed in a description of the locations of the 35 gliders, it would be possible to watch the whole construction process run to completion. The simulator would have to take a lot of special-purpose shortcuts -- e.g., just store start and end locations for debris chains, and don't bother tracking the position of each piece of junk; just fast-forward umpteen bajillion ticks and say "okay, that chain is all cleaned up".

Maybe that seems like cheating, but it's not really so different from what HashLife does today. We can prove that HashLife works, and we could also prove that our custom simulator doesn't take any illegal shortcuts.

There is: use gliders from rs (or interactions of them and pis) to synthesise a universal constructor which reads a memory tape of ash from pis (or interactions again) and encode a seed that produces the whole thing again at an offset (using something fancy like firing-squad synchronization metacells that trigger 1g seeds for pis and rs to synchronise all the pis and rs).

Is there a p4 sparker that can be used to extract a glider from a Herschel conduit in the correct phase but doesn't do anything if the Herschel arrives in any of the other 3 phases mod 4?

I did confirm that this pattern is in fact a period 2^86,243-1 oscillator: 43114 quadri-Snarks, two CP semi-Snarks, and two CC semi-Snarks attached to a base gun with period 8192 = 2^13. 43113*2+4+13 = 86243, and it can be easily seen that the reset mechanism is adjusted to subtract one tick.

Again, this pattern is only 30K, so clearly we're not being nearly ambitious enough. Anyone want to build an oscillator for the largest Mersenne prime currently known,

2^82,589,933-1 ?

### Re: Thread for basic questions

Also, I don't think Golly would handle an oscillator with the largest known prime period.
Is it possible to recreate/rebuild the long lost unbounded binary counter and pseudo-ruler generator from Calcyman's "very large awesome patterns" thread?
One big dirty Oro. Yeeeeeeeeee...

I don't think Golly will have any more trouble than it has with period 2^86,243-1, really. Sure, you won't be able to run it through a full cycle, but you'll be able to see all the circuitry working and do some simple math to confirm the period.

The O(log(t)) binary counter doesn't seem terribly interesting compared to O(sqrt(log(t))), but it would be very easy to re-create with today's technology. It would end up much more compact than whatever calcyman came up with way back in 2010, pre-Snark and pre-syringe. Start a thread for the project and make a credible attempt to do some of the wiring for it, and I'm fairly sure someone would come along to help complete the pattern.

The pseudo-ruler generator is a bit trickier. If I'm reading the linked message above correctly, it might have been a first use of calcyman's diagonal block-matrix printer (later used in the phi and pi calculators). I guess maybe similar N-state computer wiring could have been attached to it, but with a simpler program / fewer states than the 177-line or 188-line code for the phi and pi calculators.

Not sure what happened when the pseudo-ruler sequence got up into two-digit numbers (if I even have the right sequence -- A087230?) Did the printer print spaces between successive terms in the sequence? Or was it some other sequence that never gets to two digits?

It would be neat to reverse-engineer the N-state computer part of the phi calculator, and get to where we could compile similar code to do other calculations. Could replace the old Silver reflectors with something more modern -- Scorbie Splitters, maybe.

EDIT: Just tried writing a script to pack enough quadri-Snarks into a square, to get to the largest known Mersenne prime. The unit of repetition turned out to be something like 60x32, so I made it 64x32 to reduce the size of the macrocell file.

Boy, did it ever keep the size down! I accidentally calculated the number of multipliers as if they were semi-Snarks instead of quadri-Snarks, so ended up was twice as many quadri-Snarks as the highest Mersenne prime needs -- and the macrocell file is still less than 5K, even though the pattern is 200K cells on a side and the RLE would be humongous:

I'll rework the script a bit and then post it along with a new candidate record-biggest-prime oscillator.

Actually, I made an unbounded binary counter a year ago.

It sucks because you can barely see the counting. But look at the bounding box! It's a modified version of a slow population growth pattern, but I don't remember what rate.

Well... that's one way of doing linear binary counting, sure, but it's no good as a replacement for the pattern that calcyman described. Your pattern is a c/2 double rake for semi-Snarks, so the diameter grows linearly at half lightspeed, not O(log t).

A clean binary counter with O(log t) growth is a bit trickier. It might possibly be doable with a very clever repeated salvo of gliders or *WSSes crashing into something, along the lines of Jason Summers' O(log t) loggrow-diam pattern from jslife-oversize, but that would take a lot of new research. And without a lot of cleverness it would stop being a proper binary counter after a while, anyway: with a fixed input period, no matter how high, eventually the next salvo will start to do the next increment before the previous increment finishes.

I thought that that pattern was in Golly's collection, but it doesn't seem to be there. (EDIT: Oh, there it is -- "logarithmic-width.mc" in the HashLife folder. That's what I get for renaming things.) Here's a rebuild of loggrow-diam made by Gabriel Nivasch in 2006, as an experiment with HashLife-friendliness (though it didn't make much difference):

#C loggrow-diam with p256 logic
x = 1325, y = 315, rule = B3/S23

The easy way to do a true binary counter would be to use a diagonal static tape with 1 = (some still life), 0 = empty space, with a resettable elbow running alongside. Arrange it so that when a TEST signal is sent, 0's change to 1's and send back a RESET signal, moving the elbow back to the first bit on the tape. 1's change to 0's and send back a CARRY signal that moves the elbow to the next position on the tape, and then a TEST signal is sent again.

This is almost that but it fails to restore a block.

Really all we need is a small block factory:

Something similar has been investigated, but I'm not sure if Bellman was ever tried on it. Guam was able to extract a B-heptomino or Herschel, but it went in the opposite direction relative to the initial collision (and needed another glider to do the cleanup):

x = 109, y = 47, rule = LifeHistory

It's interesting that the B-heptomino output in Scorbie's pattern restores one of the blocks... but it appears that I said the same thing the last time this pattern was posted. Looks like Scorbie tried to find a completion, but I'm not sure if he used any search tools besides Bellman. CatForce or ptbsearch might also produce results, though it's probably a long shot either way.

It's worth throwing everything we have at it, though, since if it could be made to work -- even as a 90-degree reflector, let alone a G-to-H -- it would be a color-changing Snark, possibly even small and fast enough to win MikeP's prize.

No to mention how close it is to spartan— I’m rather surprised I didn’t find an eater placement restoring the other block.

My goal was to find a 90 degree reflector since it only requires a reasonable-looking block factory.

Where can I find the script for making 0E0P metacell patterns?

That doesn’t do 0E0Ps, as far as I know.
