A sequence of totalistic cellular automata with three possible colors for each cell. Although their basic rules are more complicated, the cellular automata shown here do not seem to have fundamentally more complicated behavior than the two-color cellular automata shown on previous pages. Note that in the sequence of rules shown here, those that change the white background are not included. The symmetry of all the patterns is a consequence of the basic structure of totalistic rules.
