[[[> IMG:Gospers_glider_gun.gif ---- |>> Gosper's "Glider Gun" <<| ]]] A Cellular Automaton invented by Cambridge Mathematician, John Horton Conway. In the starting position, called the first generation, each cell is either empty or populated. To find the position in the next generation: For each cell that is populated * Each cell with one or no neighbours dies, as if by loneliness. * Each cell with four or more neighbours dies, as if by overpopulation. * Each cell with two or three neighbours survives. For each cell that is 'empty' or 'unpopulated' * Each cell with three neighbours becomes populated, as if by birth.
