Hey guys, I know that Dee's Life was nice, so I found another rule (randomly!) that I also find interesting. I call it Wickstretcher And The Parasites. It is an explosive rule that has, obviously, Wickstrechers of different sorts. As usual, if you find something interesting in this rule, please note it down in this topic and post it. Thank you for understanding!

This rule is also self-complementary and can sustain anti-patterns in full blocks.

Wickstretchers

The most common Wickstretcher is this:

Code: Select all

```
x = 3, y = 4, rule = B01356/S012345

```

Code: Select all

```

There are a few spaceships that I found naturally. These include:

A c/2 spaceship

Edit:Okay you know what nevermind, I am just going to give you examples.

Parasites

This is the most common parasite which is latching on the third most common Wickstretchter.

*Note: Is it me, or is this rule getting weirder? When I load in a pattern that I notice from this rule, it tends to be different. Am I the only person experiencing this?*
