Let's classify B3/S23 patterns Taxonomically!

Post by bibunsekibun » June 19th, 2021, 2:33 am

Classify B3/S23 patterns by Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, and Species.
You can add Subclasses, Superfamily, etc. as needed.
The suffixes from Superfamily to Subtribes are the same as in the Animala.

Have Fun!

Not a new idea, though; see Saka's post.

But it's a Rule classification, not a B3/S23 Pattern classification.

Better make the rules classification.
I would prefer something like this:
Vita vita - Conway's game of life
Vita replicator - HighLife
Vita pi - Pi puffer life
Expvita desertum - DryLife
Traffica traffica - Traffic Flow
And so on.
Have a good day!
