The 3286 sixteen-bit still-lifes

Due to space limitations, these are shown without syntheses on a separate page, with syntheses for 338 of them.


The 1645 sixteen-bit pseudo-still-lifes

Due to space limitations, these and their syntheses are shown on a separate page.


The 98 sixteen-bit period 2 oscillators

16-bit period 2 oscillators


The 225 sixteen-bit period 2 pseudo-oscillators

Due to space limitations, these and their syntheses are shown on a separate page.
