This rule also contains a xp276 that is identical to the minimal phase of the tLife xp160: 7v.

### Re: B36a/S2-i34t5e -- its potential probably comparable to tLife

(corollary) - Is a concerted synthesis of two xp276 good enough to make the guns needed for 1) glider guns 2) diteardrop gun?

(main question) - Is 6G the cheapest synth for a glider gun?

AbhpzTa, I've always wondered, what script do you use to find some of your syntheses and strung-together-puffer spaceships? I've seen some remarkably surprising syntheses stemming from weird still life seeds that I can only imagine as coming from the output of some script!!
