Just to note what interesting results I could and could not find. Since my main aim is to find all 10-cell infinite growth patterns, I'm just looking at patterns that my algorithm does not judge to be quiescent at 16,384 steps. It's a conservative algorithm, since it just checks that the pattern contains nothing other than still lifes, oscillators, gliders and *WSSs, and requires the gliders and *WSSs to be a certain distance away from the still lifes, oscillators, and anything travelling in other directions. The version I'm using at present checks that the still lifes and oscillators are unchanged after 12 steps - so if an oscillator has a period not divisible by 12, the pattern is reported as non-quiescent. All such patterns reported so far either are or include a pentadecathlon, or are variants of bunnies10; but all the latter except bunnies10 itself and now bunnies10a, resolve in less than 17,423 steps.
I'll cross-post part of this message to the methuselahs thread.
