Game of Pixel

To Matt Pearson, who taught me that coding is poetry.

  1. Any live cell with fewer than two live neighbors dies, as if by underpopulation.
  2. Any live cell with two or three live neighbors lives on to the next generation.
  3. Any live cell with more than three live neighbors dies, as if by overpopulation.
  4. Any dead cell with exactly three live neighbors becomes a live cell, as if by reproduction.
A run of the GOL starting from a random configuration, lasting 512 generations and then restarting. A cell is a square of side 5 pixels: white cells are alive, black cells are dead.
L = 0.2126 * R + 0.7152 * G + 0.0722 * B

As a child that fancies about alien life, I love to dream that these images are telling something, computing answers, giving hope.
