Running the pattern demonstrates how the data on the tape will be interpreted as glider pairs fed directly to the construction arm. Once construction is complete, the next cycle of the memory loop will copy all the gliders to the newly created child loop.

When all gliders are copied, the output path is shut off again, and the parent replicator returns to its exact starting state. However, a key part of the child replicator is a pair of integral signs catching glider pairs from the parent's construction arm, so the parent can no longer reach its construction elbow. The child replicator picks up where the parent left off and constructs a grandchild replicator, which in turn suppresses the child's construction arm -- and so on.

-- Now that the replicator body is just about as small as I can figure out how to make it, I'm getting back to work on the slow-salvo compiler for arbitrary Spartan constellations. Have had a few breakthroughs recently, so things are looking good so far!
