A pattern is considered common if it frequently arises after several generations of a random starting pattern (known as soup).

Frequency of stable objects

How Common a stable object is refers to how often it is found after evolving an initial pattern, relative to other stable objects. Achim Flammenkamp has compiled a list of the 100 most common stable (including periodic) objects, as well as resulting oscillators, from evolving 1,829,196 randomly seeded 2048 x 2048 tori at an initial density of 0.375.[1]. When other pages in this wiki refer to how common stable objects are, they refer to this list unless otherwise stated.
