Nine thousand steps in the evolution of the three-color totalistic cellular automaton with code number 1599. Starting from a single gray cell, each column corresponds to 3000 steps. The outcome of the evolution finally becomes clear after 8282 steps, when the pattern resolves into 31 simple repetitive structures.
