Results obtained by deducing optimal orderings of basic forms from collections of images of cellular automata (top) and letters (bottom). The orderings of basic forms are shown on the left, in each case starting with those whose weights are largest in absolute value when averaged over the collection of images. Note that the orderings are shown for 8×8 basic forms, while the actual images are 32×32. The orderings are deduced respectively from images of the 256 elementary cellular automata, and the 52 upper and lower case letters.
