Abstract : We introduce the Larger than Life family of two-dimensional two-state cellular automata that generalize certain nearest neighbor outer totalistic cellular automaton rules to large neighborhoods. We describe linear and quadratic rescalings of John Conway-s celebrated Game of Life to these large neighborhood cellular automaton rules and present corresponding generalizations of Life-s famous gliders and spaceships. We show that, as is becoming well known for nearest neighbor cellular automaton rules, these ``digital creatures- are ubiquitous for certain parameter values.

Keywords : Cellular automata spaceships Game of Life Larger than Life
