### Re: Rule definition terminology

* many occurrences are in thread names (e.g. "Rules 1 transition from Life") which are automatically copied from the first post, unless the post's author changes the default subject line. In a sense, all these occurrences in thread names "belong" to the first post and could be counted as just one o...

### Re: Rule definition terminology

Sorry to bring this up again but

In my experience, both terms are in use, but "transition" seems significantly more commonly used than "condition". Just from a descriptive linguistics standpoint, it makes more sense to use "transition".

### Re: How do we get more gender equality at the top?

This seems actually pretty tricky ngl. I'm not sure that there are a whole lot of barriers that WE have control over (seeing as we're literally a chat forum with very little barriers to entry), a lot of the issues probably just come from disproportional male exposure/access to science education etce...

### Seriously?

protip: when a mod locks a thread, you probably shouldn't create a nearly identical thread with a couple haphazard added "rules" in a futile attempt to prevent it from going the same direction as the original.

but that doesn't prove anything because UC(H,Q) can be 0 Wel, no, it can't be, because it's going to be a valid Turing machine, and by your definition that means it's not going to output 0, which only happens if it's not a valid turing machine.

because life patterns have the same behavior regardless of colors no counter example can be constructed They have the same behavior within the CA, i.e. you cannot internally distinguish them. But you can distinguish them externally , because they're different states. Suppose colorized life solved t...

Why aren't any new periods coming up like p19 or p41? More or less, the answer boils down to "we have no efficient way to search for them". And we have no idea how complex the simplest p19s or p41s would be. If they exist (and proving otherwise would be absurdly difficult. I don't think there's a w...

I feel like the game works much better the way we've done it. Restricting it to integers makes it pointless. well, the original idea was to eventually get to enormous (i.e. googological) numbers.
