COMMENTS

Unlike A322050, this sequence contains only finitely many 1's. However, the Cellular Automaton and its counting sequences still admit a 2^n fractal structure (Cf. A322662). The subsequences L_n = {a(2^n), a(2^n+1), ... a(2^(n+1)-1)} appear to approach a limit sequence L_{oo}, starting with 4 ON cells. Of these 4, one is a "pioneer" at distance d*2^n from the origin, with d the distance of one knight step. The other three of four ON cells are due to retrogressive growth.
