Re: indestructible pattern

I found a pattern that contains chaos. The chaos sticks to the walls, but patterns with two axes of symmetry (one in small spaces) can crystallize spaceship collisions in the center until the space is filled. Then inverse spaceships often create inverse crystals and the process repeats. This pattern...
