Re: Research on orthogonal lightspeed signals traveling through striped media

This is all 1970s stuff, I think.

But I have had this idea about dependent drifters (including lightspeed signals) - somewhat like the dependent p31 and p26 glider reflectors. I think that hasn't been explored much.

Re: John Conway has passed away

I am not mourning the death. I am not at all saddened by the fact that it was from Covid-19. Conway was already in the rear view mirror when Catagolue came out. The original subjects of investigation in the early 70s have now been almost completely supplanted by modern research topics - glider synth...

Is this known? I don't see it anywhere else (p16 bumper):
The bumper is known and the Rob's p16's interactions are known. This could be considered new, but anywhere it could be used, a p8 bumper could be used, and the oscillators used for p8 bumpers take up smaller space than Rob's p16.

Yes, it's a p48, but no cell there is p48, and indeed the cell that turns on as a result of the interaction is p24.
