Can you reduce the synthesis?

Groups of gliders that include crossing paths aren't considered to be actual glider syntheses. For example, the center two gliders in this group from your construction --

x = 5, y = 16, rule = B3/S23
bo\$2bo\$3o2\$3o\$2bo\$bo3\$3bo\$4bo\$2b3o2\$2b3o\$4bo\$3bo!

-- would have interacted before they reached this point (e.g., if the four glider salvos were generated by huge faraway shotguns.)

Long story short, the 576-glider pattern would need a glider synthesis of its own, and it looks like that would take quite a few more gliders to untangle all the crossing paths.
