2c? If only?

Post by Jackk » May 20th, 2012, 3:09 pm

Now I know it is impossible to go faster than light, but if it were possible to combine two rules...
Anyway, I found an almost 2c p1 spaceship, which repeats itself 2 cells orthoganally except for the 4 cells at the front:

Code: Select all

x = 73, y = 16, rule = LifeHistory

If you could combine a level 2 Moore neighbourhood rule with this, it seems that you could make it work :)
If anyone knows if this is possible...

A while ago I found several patterns a bit like this that appear to move faster than c (apart from the bit at the front of the ship):

Code: Select all

x = 118, y = 903, rule = Life

The other thing about it is that it decays slowly at the back end compared to most one like it.
It feels like there should be a way to stabilise it..

Edit: Just for fun - an oblique one:

Creating these kind of patterns of any velocity and trajectory is not too hard. Basically, you take a starting seed, run it for P generations, then recreate the seed Q steps away (for a speed of Qc/P). Here's a "10c pi fuse":

Or try iterating this R-pentomino combination for a fairly long-winded (10,1)c reaction:

Code: Select all

x = 13, y = 4, rule = LifeHistory
11.A$3A7.3A$ABA7.A$A!
Seems that if a reaction ends up repeating itself however, then it should be possible to ground it somehow…

…And here's something weirder: chaotic quadratic growth! This emerges if iterating a blinker at (2,1)c (many other iterations at that speed seem to produce something similar).

What I meant to say was I didn't found a "stable" one, since the wick cannot be bounded like
this one in B36/S345

A lot of pattern seem to behave like a Puffer (particularly the symmetric ones), maybe there's a "Rake" one...

I like to consider these patterns whose time dimension has been projected down to the space dimensions. In this case, (x=0, y=0, t=1) has been projected to (x=2, y=2, t=0).

I'm guessing the sudden renewed interest in this thread is based on this discussion we were having in the "Replicator" thread (which somehow turned into a "moving partial agar" thread).

Almost every single example posted there so far is of this type. A couple of them are Life patterns (one of them looks like the one in the above post but using a block instead of a blinker).

For those who didn't click on the link, there's a nice script to make these so much easier to make:

Code: Select all

import golly as g
s = g.getselrect()
if s == []:
    s = g.getrect()
xy = [0, 0]
s = g.getcells(s)
if s == []:
    g.exit("Pattern is empty.")
disp = g.getstring("Enter displacement in form (x,y,t):", "2,0,1").split(",")
n = 0
try:
    disp = (int(disp[0]), int(disp[1]), int(disp[2]))
    n = int(g.getstring("How many times to repeat?", "25"))
except:
    g.exit("Invalid input.")
g.new("a")
g.putcells(s, xy[0], xy[1], 1, 0, 0, 1, "xor")
for i in xrange(n):
    xy[0] += disp[0]
    xy[1] += disp[1]
    g.run(disp[2])
    g.putcells(s, xy[0], xy[1], 1, 0, 0, 1, "xor")

Code: Select all

I tried to use the repeat script to this pattern

Code: Select all

x = 480, y = 128, rule = B3/S23:T0,128
480o2$480o2$480o2$480o2$480o2$480o2$480o2$480o2$480o2$480o2$480o2$480o

480o2$480o2$480o2$480o2$480o2$480o2$480o!
When my input was (2,0,1),I got this screenshot during the process
repeat in tube 128.png
repeat in tube 128.png (56.38 KiB) Viewed 15453 times
I realized the script was using XOR paste mode so the line in front got broken, and that it took a while to refresh the pattern.

Since most CA have an 8-cell boundary which a cell can interact with, why not develop a 24-cell boundary which can interact with two cells ahead of itself and as such up the limit to 2c?

Well... if "c", lightspeed, is defined as the fastest speed that a signal can travel in a given CA, then 2c is still going to be out of reach.

A top speed of two cells per tick is easy enough to arrange, using any number of tricks with CA definitions. The easiest one might be to redefine a "tick" as two successive applications of the standard Life-like CA rule(s) of your choice...!

Larger neighborhoods have definitely been tried, most notably in the "Larger than Life" rules in Mirek's Cellebration. Your suggestion corresponds to range=2.

In my version,the result will be shown in a new layer called "repeated" and the original layer will be gone.
