The I2 glider

The I2 glider is the simplest glider. It is just made of 4 cells.

2 yellow and 2 red.

the t4 block | the t4 block with c1 |

yellow cell called c1

pat1

in this pattern when the i2 glider touches the t4 block

the i2 glider copies itself, turns around 180 degress and goes the other way

this pattern is a basic building block for

a pattern that makes a stream of i2 gliders

pat2

here we place the 2 t4 blocks and the i2 glider in such a way so that

the i2 glider goes back and forth and makes 2 streams of i2 gliders

it is called t4 glider maker

here is the f2 block

pat3

in this pattern the i2 glider dissappears when it touches the f2 block

pat4

this pattern is like pat2 except we add a f2 block to it.

it only makes 1 glider stream instead of 2

it is called t2 glider makers

pat5

this pattern is more complex. it made out of pat2 and pat4 put togethor

one of pat2's glider streams gets cancel out by pat4's glider stream

as a result it only makes 1 glider stream

pat6

in this pattern there are 2 i2 gliders and 1 t4 block. the first one

adds a c1 to the t4 block. the second one, for it to remove the c1 from the t4 block without

making any gliders it haves to touch the t4 block at exactly the right time

pat7

this pattern the firsst glider on the bottom switches on the t4 glider maker

then second glider on the top switches off the t4 glider maker

NOT gate

this pattern is a NOT gate and is made out of 2 t2 glider makers

both glider streams from both t2 glider makers cancel each other out. that stands for 0

if you move the f2 block down to block a glider stream then you will get 1 glider stream. that stands for 1

pat8

this pattern has a t2 glider maker that makes gliders and a t4 block that halves the number of

gliders and turns them around

the I3 glider

the I3 glider is made out 8 cells. 3 yellow cells, 3 red cells and 2 blue cells

the I55 glider

the I55 glider is made out 14 cells. 6 yellow cells, 6 red cells and 2 blue cells

pat9

this pattern has 3 t4 blocks it makes a i2 glider and a i55 glider from the i3 glider

pat10

this pattern has 2 t4 glider makers, a f2 block shared by both to absorb the gliders

and pat9 in it. it combines both glider streams to make a stream of i3 gliders.

next it makes i2 gliders and i55 gliders from the i3 gliders

pat11

this pattern has a t4 block that combines the two glider streams

from both t2 glider makers together

pat12

in this pattern the I2 gliders in the glider stream become a I3 glider when they touch

a another I2 glider at right angles. There are 2 t4 blocks that turn the I3 gliders

and add a i2 glider ahead of each one.

pat13

in this pattern the 3 t4 blocks make 5 i2 gliders from a single i2 glider

NOR gate

this pattern is a NOR gate either glider stream that is vertical cancels out

the horizontal glider stream and the output is 0

if you move both f2 blocks down to block both vertical glider streams then the ouput is 1

OR gate

in this pattern we combine the NOR gate with the NOT gate and we got the OR gate

you can try moving down the f2 blocks

AND gate

this pattern is a AND gate the output is the top horizontal glider stream

the bottom horizontal glider blocks the vertical glider stream

if it is blocked then the vertical glider stream blocks top horizontal glider stream
