Toad (xp2_7e)

x = 1, y = 1, rule = B3/S23
This pattern is an oscillator.
This pattern is periodic with period 2.
This pattern runs in a non-standard rule (b3aijqs2ak).
The population is constantly 6.
This evolutionary sequence works in multiple rules, from b3aijqs2ak through to b2cin345678s0234-ar5678.

lol this is a cloak aka a clock toad

In b3aeij45ns2-ac3-n4krw5, this pattern looks like a toad in one generation and like a clock the next.

What I love about this rule is that the toad is infinitely extendible. x = 10, y = 28, rule = B3/S2 7b2o$9bo$6bo$7b2o$7b2o$9bo$6bo$7b2o$7b2o$9bo$6bo$7b2o$7b2o$9bo$6bo$7b 2o$5b2o$7bo$4bo$5b2o$3b2o$5bo$2bo$3b2o$b2o$3bo$o$b2o!

B3/S1c2-k4a has a p6 toad with both phases.

Yet another is in B3-a/S1234a.

Another fake toad is in B3a/S4.

There's a relatively common fake toad in B2ce3i4/S345-jqr.

Perhaps they should use Life analogies for the chance of the universe being able to support life. "Life occurring in the universe is like doing Ctrl-5 on Golly and getting Gemini."

As I said elsewhere, 2-3 (classic) LIFE does not lend itself towards common oscillators. Usually the oscillator is a ratty blinker, but toads & beacons ,and the P3 Pulsar do occur. Some had to be artificially constructed, and, even so, failed to turn up spontanously appear in random fields.

It's like trying to have a random letter generator come up with Hamlet's TO BE OR NOT TO BE.
