create a universe for Conway’s game of life and set all cells to dead

create a new universe with some defaults

create a semi totalistic automata, note that only neighbors are counted, as such only 9 bits from either law is considered

laws are formatted like ie 0x1000_0001_0 which indicates that a cell survives if and only if it has eight or two neighbors

create a semi totalistic automata, note that only neighbors are counted (non-nine sum), ranges used

create a totalistic universe of the given code. 6 MSDs of the binary number are ignored (Uses non-wrapping sum). LSD corresponds to zero action
laws are formatted like ie 0x01000_00110 which indicates that a cell survives if and only if it has eight, three or two neighbors
