game of life

Ive been using this for years ...from 6th form to yr 7
The main point I like to make is that maths does not have to have an immediate purpose...and that there are interesting patterns just 'out there'...they may one day have a use and purpose but if they don't, does it mean we shouldnt study them [too much of teaching today panders to the 'why do we need to know this?' question]..anyway my final qu is often : does a glider exist? (we see it, but it is just the result of some simple rules)
