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 standard life (b3s23).
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!

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.
