A natural object is one that has occurred in the ash of random soups. The definition of a random soup, under the influence of Catagolue, is an asymmetric 16x16 pattern where a string that gets mapped to the soup through SHA-256 is known. Objects such as blocks, blinkers, beehives and gliders are very natural and appear in the majority of soups, while objects such as figure eights and queen bee shuttles are less natural, occurring rarely. Darts, Gosper glider guns, etc., are not natural as of July 2022, having never appeared in an asymmetric soup. On the other hand, objects found in the ash of symmetric soups generated from known strings through SHA-256, are often said to occur semi-naturally. The dart is an example of a semi-natural pattern, having appeared in soups with bilateral symmetry.
