One of the great things about Conway’s Life is that there are a number of patterns which exhibit very interesting behavior, from the genuinely simple, like Gosper’s Glider, to the very complex, like Max.Lif, and even the seemingly simple, like the humble Acorn, and its thousands of generations of progress.
Our Life application comes with a number of notable patterns pre-filled-in, so you can watch them grow and develop, without the tedium of typing them in. This page helps organize those patterns.
Please leave comments on the patterns matching the comment, and comments about missing patterns in the suggestions page for patterns. Thanks for helping us stay organized.
