Evolution of two-dimensional cellular automata

Examples of the evolution of two-dimensional cellular automata with various totalistic rules starting from random initial conditions. The rules involve a cell and its four immediate neighbors. Each successive base 2 digit in the code number for the rule gives the outcome when the total of the cell and its four neighbors runs from 5 down to 0.
