my goal

I'm helping the learning project Conway's "Game of Life" by:

editing

  • editing the heartbeat of these grids randomly (e.g. see my own heartbeat at the bottom of this page)

checking

  • besides editing, I'm finding out when the "death state" for the models will come
    • then I inform someone to re-awake the dead beings (yes, reincarnation is possible)
      • I heard the rumour this guy is implementing next, that even my smallness can "inhale life" again into those dead beings
        • <evil laughter>... <a moment of silence>... and then: <with a serious voice>:
          • "my creations will live forever"
    • by checking the amount of zero-lines ("|0|0|0|0|0|0|0|0|0|0") before my edit
      • e.g. see the "death state" picture above: it contains 8 zero-lines

other things

  • currently I edit faster (to gather some infos; later the tempo will be reduced)
    • 2014-08-27: edit speed reduced
  • this guy thinks it's about time to find out the longest-surviving models

my (own) heartbeat

howto

The below (finite!) 10x10 toroidal model of the game of Life is my heartbeat:

  • press the "edit" button on the top of this page
    • (to edit: you can use a pre-defined account from here)
  • and then just click the "Save page" button (below the editing window).
    • ain't that simple? no need to edit any text into the page itself
      • though, if you want you can add some, e.g. in the invisible comment section

am I still alive?
