COMMENTS

A cell is turned ON if exactly one of its eight neighbors is ON. An ON cell remains ON for ever.
We start with a single ON cell.
Analog of A147562, which is the case when each cell has only four neighbors.
The equivalent Mathematica cellular automaton is obtained with neighborhood weights {{1,1,1},{1,9,1},{1,1,1}}, rule number 261634, and starting configuration {{1}}. [From John W. Layman, Sep 11 2009]
Observation: Visual pattern similar to the toothpick structure (see A139250). [From Omar E. Pol, Dec 14 2009]
