never needed saving from anything

In a letter written in 1952, Alan Turing, the father of Computer Science and one of the greatest intellectual adventurers of the 20th century, states: «I’m afraid that the following syllogism may be used by some in the future. Turing believes machines think. Turing lies with men. Therefore machines do not think». The Game of Life is a cellular automaton devised by Dr. Conway in 1970. The evolution of the automaton is determined by its initial state, needing no further input. At each generation, four simple rules decide on the birth, life or death of the cells. never needed saving from anything explores the Game of Life by considering cells (and their outcome) as humans. In this stressful simulation, people from the LGBTQ+ community beautify the world by simply Coming Out. Simulated or not, this world will eventually win.
