Re: Methuselah Definition

Well, a Methuselah is defined by, essentially, the size of the original pattern versus the size of the reaction it creates, right? If we make a standard for this, we will be able to give any pattern ratings based on this, and we can decide what rating makes the pattern a Methuselah. We have not star...

Re: Text Strings

So this would be like a repository? Well, if we're getting serious, we should use patterns that produce different sparks and results.

Re: Methuselah Definition

It really just depends on your definition of "size" then. I guess size of end pattern is important, but it can be caused by a short reaction. At the same time, a pattern that lasts a long time can produce a small end result... I think that they should be measured for averages, and then averaged with...

Re: Methuselah Definition

Using the recently proposed polynomino bounding box, I think that system is dependent both on population and on distance (bounding box). The start pattern should be judged by the polyomino bounding box. The end pattern should be judged by the smallest size polyomino bounding box for all periods. So ...

Re: Structures that behave as single cells?

Keep in mind, these are structures that simulate single spaces for cells, in that they simulate cells, but they do not construct new cells or die off.

Re: rectangles

I see what you are saying now. The inside is chaotic even though it forms fractal patterns; the things making up those patterns are unpredictable. Unfortunately it is unlikely that the inside of the pattern will create something that emerges on the outside, making infinite growth very unlikely, but ...

Re: rectangles

Well, the proof for perfect squares is that in very large patterns, it repeats itself

Go ahead, make a 5000x5000 and look at the corners

I'm not sure how valid this is.

Simple way of doing this:

Set random fill density to 100%

Create selection rectangle, note its size

fill it "randomly"

I was thinking about the way that patterns tend to grow, and I came up with an idea: Rather than having a completely random distribution, what about making it randomly random; like this: The selection is divided into a grid of squares, 4x4 or larger Each square has a random number (With a potentiall...

Every artist has his niche, but I can tell you now that this is a scientific community, though a subforum might be created to accommodate this.
