This is Conway's Game of Life, invented by John Conway in 1970. It is a grid of cells that are either dead (white) or alive (blue). Dead cells touching three living cells come to life, and living cells die unless they are touching two or three other living cells. From these simple rules, all of these patterns emerge.
