So, I'm currently working with cellular automata but I started to wandered, what's the perfect amount of neighbours each cell should have if I'm working in a bi-dimensional space? Up to now I was working with 8 neighbours for each cell (like a grid with square cells), but maybe I should have circular cells with 6 neighbours each (kissing number for a bi-dimensional space). Of course, the first approach is easier to do, but seems a bit arbitrary.
What do you guys think about this? Any input would be great
