Evolution is the process or result of running one or more generations of a pattern. For example, a row of 10 cells evolves into a pentadecathlon.

Reaction

Reaction refers to a specific evolution with some trait. For instance, in a traffic jam reaction, two traffic lights push each other out by 3 cells. Reactions can be classified in many ways, e.g. 2-glider collisions, over-unity reactions and catalytic reactions.
