Optimizing recursive templates

Hi Guys,

I am starting this thread to talk about the feasibility of 
rewriting recursive templates as iterative internal forms.

This addresses the general issue and does not concern itself with 
particular local instances of the problem which may be solvable 
with lesser means.

The Problem is essentially equivalent to this:

Solve for the outcome of a particular state of "Conway game of 
live.", given an initial state and a number of steps. In constant 
time and at most linear space.

Also particular configurations of cells may change local 
evaluation rules of the automaton.

So it's my challenge to you.

Can you proof or refute the existence of a closed form function 
which can simulate the game of life in constant time ?
