Run the following pattern to generation 37 using the play function. (Initially overshooting, initially undershooting, and getting to exactly generation3 7 on the first try each works.)

Code: Select all

```
x = 26, y = 10, rule = Symbiosis
23.A$24.BA$11.B12.B$9.3B11.2B$9.B.B13.A$9.B3$2B$2B!
```

Then remove the state-one cells and the state-two cell at the top of the beehive predecessor (Using the draw tool and making selections around them then deleting the cells inside the selection each works.) so that the window shows this:

Code: Select all

```
x = 25, y = 12, rule = Symbiosis
5.3B$5.B$6.B17.B$23.2B2$20.3B$17.B2.B2.B$18.B4.B$2B14.B.B2.B.B$2B14.2B
3.2B$11.2B$11.2B!
```

The resulting preblock in the top-right should turn into a block via B3a for generation 38 (although the Herschel will start interacting with it from another side), but this 3a birth does not happen for generation 38. However, it does happen for generation 39, causing generation 39 to look like this:

Code: Select all

```
x = 25, y = 13, rule = Symbiosis
5.2B$5.B.B$5.B$23.2B$24.B$20.B3.B$19.B$18.B4.2B$17.2B4.2B$2B14.B.4B.2B
$2B14.2B3.2B$11.2B$11.2B!
```

For reference, generation 39 should look like this:

Code: Select all

```
x = 25, y = 13, rule = Symbiosis
5.2B$5.B.B$5.B$23.2B2$20.B3.B$19.B$18.B4.2B$17.2B4.2B$2B14.B.4B.2B$2B
14.2B3.2B$11.2B$11.2B!
```

I have historically worked on conduits, but recently, I've been working on glider syntheses and investigating SnakeLife.
