Shows the "Game of Life", a cellular automaton defined by the mathematician John Conway in 1970. The life status of a cell is depending on the number of living neighbour cells (including diagonal neighbours). A dead cell awakes to life when it had exactly three living neighbours in the previous cycle. A living cell dies when it had less than two or more than three living neighbours in the previous cycle.
