28 June - Dynamic interpretations

The Discord community presents various visual and dynamic interpretations of the message as Star Map/ Cellular Automaton. The header and footer are the centre of attention. New threads are created to help organise ideas emerging from the process.

I like the idea the movement is the message, as you say, only reason doing this makes sense (other than hand wavy "the aliens just like it" or whatever). Of course it's critical the rules are clearly defined in the header 🙂
xenoisx — 26/06/2023 20:24
the rules will be hard to decode, as there are many directions, repetitions etc 
HaileyStorm — 26/06/2023 20:25
Yeah, this is what worries me about the CA approaches generally. For it to work, you have to convey the idea that you're suppose to do (block) CA, AND you convey the specific rules
But it's not impossible 🙂
xenoisx — 26/06/2023 20:26
i mean the format of rules for this CA fit the prime factorized form of the header
HaileyStorm — 26/06/2023 20:26
yes, the 2x2 blocks in the body and the 2x2 patterns in the header do form a good starting point of conveying the idea & rules 
xenoisx — 26/06/2023 20:26
this are the 16 possiblilities, and this is the header

okay, this is becoming ridiculous XD
1000 generations took about 2 min, need to optimize the algo

by the way, this is unreversible and unstable

and the last one for today. This is just for fun (SEIZURE TRIGGER WARNING)

CA with rules from the header and footer
prob the rules are wrong, its hard to establish them but ill try different configurations

had to built my own ca from the ground up XD

OMG 😲  How cool is that. Looks like a little army of ants is drawing the map full of informations out of nothing.

This is amazing, really!! The map slowly reveals the information. Like magic!
HaileyStorm — 26/06/2023 20:16
Please stop driving by with confident statement and seemingly random pictures for which you don't provide an explanation 🙂
xenoisx — 26/06/2023 20:16
yep, but whats cooler is that this process is reversible

gallifreyan ...
xenoisx — 26/06/2023 20:17
which means you can write the message, and reverse it back to the starmap, then write the rules on header/footer
Sparta | Phrenic — 26/06/2023 20:18
Imagine. This is from 625 bits only and it unfolds to over 30k of information. What you can do with it using it for compression.
HaileyStorm — 26/06/2023 20:19
You gotta be careful. Mathematically, the information content remains the same
xenoisx — 26/06/2023 20:19
unfortunately it doesnt work like that
