Figure eight (xp8_gk2gb3z11)

x = 1, y = 1, rule = B3/S23
This pattern is an oscillator.
This pattern is periodic with period 8.
This pattern runs in a non-standard rule (b3-jkys2-e3acinq).
The population fluctuates between 12 and 26.
This evolutionary sequence works in multiple rules, from b3-jkys2-e3acinq through to b2ci34cikqtyz5-k6-n78s234-jknqr5-aci6-e7.

Smallest p8! Also quite easy to draw.

Bizarrely, this oscillator is also the most common p8 in the fairly dissimilar rule B2c3-js/S23. Most non-billiard-table Life oscillators do not even remotely function in that rule, apart from the blinker, beacon, barberpoles, and mazing, which work normally, and the toad and penny lane (with a smaller, less obtrusive stator), which are p6 and p5, respectively.

It can as a timed and positioned pair, hassle a T-tetronimo to rejuvenate & oscillate at P8.

The name of this ? The Tumbling T-Tetson. (Sounds like something out of Pogo Possum !)

NOT to be confused with the Twirling T-Tetson 2. (Killer Toads keep Pulsar ancestor from maturing).

This is constructible by 4 gliders. A crude ancestor.
