This is an alphabet inspired by Conway's Game of Life, a
cellular automaton created by John H. Conway in 1970. The
'game' involves an orthogonal grid, with 'live' cells and
'dead' cells. The grid changes over time - live cells can
die off (starvation or overpopulation), while dead cells can
be born/reborn (reproduction). An example is shown, using
a pixel form of the letter "G" and morphing it over 3 iterations.
(Live cells are black, dead cells are white.)
The alphabet was generated by morphing each English letter,
plus 0-9, individually in Life (3 iterations each). The punctuation
marks are based on common stable ('still life') cell groups.
- Type of writing system: alphabet
- Used to write: English
- Direction of writing: left to right in horizontal lines
"A 'live' cell dies if it has more than 3 live neighbors, or less than 2.
A 'dead' cell is repopulated if it has exactly 3 live neighbors."
