They begin their existence as a random line of green
blobs (or a single blob) across the top of the stage.
In order to determine which blobs survive
or die, each blob checks on its two immediate neighbors
on either side and compares with a rule table.
The rule table shows all 8 possible
combinations of itself and its 2 neighbors, and the
outcome (blob or no blob).
By following this set of simple rules,
a new generation or line of blobs is formed. Over
time, patterns can emerge.
