Holstein Diagonal Bands

A torus surface universe with diagonal bands of alternate state.

With the a minimum of asymmetry the boundaries perform a drunkards walk until two boundaries meet and the band collapses to nothing.

Here is a pattern which will run in golly 150 square only one boundary is moving.

This is quite a bit simpler than the checkerboard patterns which will be very interesting. The difference in average collapse time for each universe time with one or two boundaries moving should be revealing.
