## Number of parents

For a second, I was wocdering how you could have infinitely many, but then I realised that you can just add a dying cell somewhere. Which brings me to the point that it seems like it would be correct and more informative to say "A pattern can have either infinitely many parents, or none at all." Although I'm less confident about infinite patterns, so maybe "A finite pattern can have either infinitely many parents, or none at all. An infinite pattern can have any number of parents." is more plausible. Elithrion 19:39, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
