1d CA - one dimensional cellular automata

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.
