Multum in parvo (a great deal in a small space) is a methuselah found by Charles Corderman in 1972.[1]

Stable pattern

The stable pattern that results from multum in parvo (including 13 escaping gliders) has 633 cells and consists of 41 blocks, 36 blinkers (including four traffic lights), 29 beehives (including two honey farms), eight boats, six loaves, three ships, two tubs, one pond, and one toad. Although the final population is the same as that of acorn, these two are unrelated in any other way.
