Self-reproduction of the SR loop in finite space


At first the SR loops show their regular growth pattern. However, when the opposite edges of the colony collide with each other due to the periodicity of space, the irregularity of the emerging situations leads to a failure of the loops' function, so that their self-reproductive behavior halts. Eventually, the entire space is filled with static patterns including corpses of loops. After that, no changes can happen in this world any more.
