An object is said to be endemic to a rule if it can only exist in that rule, i.e. if no change in the rule's birth and survival conditions supports the object.[1] The term is understood to be relative to a certain class of cellular automata, e.g. outer-totalistic Life-like cellular automata or isotropic non-totalistic cellular automata.
