Boring p24 (or trans-pulsar on figure eight) is a period-24 oscillator composed of a pulsar and a figure eight.

Despite being composed of two oscillators of smaller periods (p3 and p8 respectively), it is considered non-trivial because it has two cells that are alive in one generation and dead in the other 23, and two more otherwise period-8 cells that are alive in one additional generation.

On Catagolue, it is the most common period 24 oscillator, being more common than the similar uninteresting p24.[1]

The boring p24 first appeared naturally on August 27, 2015, in a soup found by Brett Berger.[2] Before this, symmetric figure-eight-on-pulsar variants had appeared only semi-naturally.[3]
