COMMENTS

Start with cell (0,0) active; at each succeeding stage the cells that share exactly one edge with an active cell change their state.
The pattern has 4fold symmetry; sequence just counts cells in one quadrant.
This is not the CA discussed by Singmaster in the reference given in A079314. That was an error based on my misreading of the paper.  N. J. A. Sloane, Aug 05 2009
