Trans-beacon down on candlefrobra (xp6_w8o0uh224a4z32)

x = 1, y = 1, rule = B3/S23
This pattern is an oscillator.
This pattern is periodic with period 6.
This pattern runs in a non-standard rule (b34ckqryz5aeiny678s234-aqrw5-jq678).
The population fluctuates between 18 and 23.
This evolutionary sequence works in multiple rules, from b3-kqys23acjnr through to b34ckqryz5aeiny678s234-aqrw5-jq678.

Trans-beacon down on long hook eating tub (Candlefrobra is reserved for the cis-block variant)

Looks like this is the most common variant.

Not everyone uses those prefixes in the same way AFAIK, but I think: -"Ortho-X and Y" means X and Y point in opposite directions and their heavy parts align -"Meta-X and Y" means X and Y point in opposite directions and their light parts align -"Para-X and Y" means X and Y point in the same direction and X's heavy part aligns with Y's light part -"Shift-X and Y" means X and Y point in the same direction and X's light part aligns with Y's heavy part

These prefixes are used when two different, asymmetric induction coils disalign. Cis- and trans- are used when they align.

Ortho- and para- are also sometimes used as substitutes for cis- and trans-, especially when dealing with loaves (http://www.conwaylife.com/wiki/Ortho-loaf_and_table) or when there are 4 isomers, but at least one is disproportionately common. For example, cis-beacon and anvil is by far the most common beacon-and-anvil isomer, so it doesn't need to be called cis-beacon up and anvil.

In case anyone was wondering, I had to create some of these rules to be compatible with the LifeWiki when creating a still-life nomenclature for my Catagolue Backup.

What about the ortho-, para-, meta- and shift- prefixes from Andrzej Okrasinski's census? do they cover cases like this where there's 4 possible 'isomers' of an object?

Two of these now!

"Up" usually means the stabilizer is pointing toward the "heavy" part of the induction coil; "down" means it's pointing away. This is a trans-beacon down and long hook eating tub.

Object nomenclature isn't standardized at the time of writing. The best rule of thumb you're going to get is that the version that's more bunched up together is cis, and the other is trans. There's also the up and down specifiers...this would probably be a "candlefrobra on trans-beacon down", yes.

Candlefrobra on trans-beacon? (I swear, I still haven't figured out this cis/trans notation!)
