LowDeath is a Lifelike cellular automaton in which cells survive from one generation to the next if they have 2, 3 or 8 neighbours, and are born if they have 3, 6 or 8 neighbours.
Patterns
Many patterns from HighLife are compatible with this rule. HighLife's replicator works in this rule, albeit with a different evolution sequence due to the result of Pedestrian Life's pedestrian effect.
Universality
There is a proof sketch of LowDeaths's universality. It is on ConwayLife forums,^{[1]} which contains a proofscheme covering all rules in the outertotalistic rulespace between B3/S23 and B3678/S23678.
