Re: Agar crawlers

I had been running the next size up in 2c/5 parallel greyship edges, but there's just so much crud to pick through and I'm not sure we're interesting in a few more random edges. One interesting thing I noticed in a partial was there's a very small "seam" between parallel and perpendicular at 2c/5 a...

Farther away from the axes the search actually is just divided in two Distinct areas with half the number of generations. T...

While the former act in the super c/2 realm, the latter act in the sub c/2 realm. These two realms are vastly different, as anybody will agree who seriously touched both areas.
