Breeder (cellular automaton)

View the animation

An animated image demonstrating a breeder pattern from Conway's Game of Life. Breeders exhibit quadratic growth, by generating multiple copies of a secondary pattern, each of which then generates multiple copies of a tertiary pattern. There are four types of breeders, this one being a puffer that leaves guns in its wake.
