COMMENTS

There are two slightly different possible definitions for a pseudo still life: a still life that can be partitioned into exactly two different still lifes, or a still life that can be partitioned into two *or more* still lifes. This sequence uses the latter definition. The first point in the sequence where this makes a difference is a(32) = 6123084116, which would be a(32) = 6123084115 under the former definition.

EXAMPLE

For n = 8, the unique pseudo still life is a pair of 2 X 2 blocks occupying a 5 X 2 bounding box.
