NEW STILL LIFE & PULSAR

Post by qerwtr546 » March 9th, 2013, 1:43 pm

By just shitting around I found a new still life, and a new pulsar.
Still life code:
x = 6, y = 6, rule = B3/S23
$bo$b3o$4bo$3b2o!
Pulsar code:
x = 12, y = 5, rule = B3/S23
$3bo4bo$b2ob4ob2o$3bo4bo!

I'm sorry if I disappoint you but neither the still life nor the pulsar* is new. The still life is an eater 1 found in 1971 and the other one is a pentadecathlon found in 1970.

*Normally pulsar refers to this particular object. Objects that return to their original state after two or more generations are called oscillators.

I have to say, this was entirely spurious. Moral of the story: always check the databases before reporting a discovery.
