(In reply to Almost proved: two gaps
I ran it on a computer with n=149 and 1000 state changes.
The pattern in the 149 lamps did not repeat in either the forward order or the reverse order.
The pattern when you look at a two dimensional view is beautiful, except when the pattern from one end of the row runs into the pattern from the other end.
If one can prove that this chaotic pattern cannot produce a row with all the lamps on, I would really like to see it.
