in reply to Game of life ran by unpack function
I don't know how I missed this node the first time through, but I'm blown away by it. I'll have to study this one to see how pack and unpack are combined to do this.
It's kind of like some of the amazing regex nodes I see from time to time: I've been aware that regexes are more capable than I've ever used them for, but haven't dug into them far enough to figure out how people use them as a programming language to solve problems.
When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.
