Re: Extended Life Extensions

I have finished the enumeration of all 2-cell objects. Note: States 15/16 are only distinct from states 4/2 when a birth is prevented with them, which requires 3 or more cells. A 2-cell pattern without states 8/9/12/13/14 cannot give birth to any new cells, and will stabilize into vacuum, p1, or p2.
