Partial structural dissolution of the SDSR loop


Two sheath fragments are placed in the area in which the loop intends to reproduce its offspring. As the loop thrusts an arm, a dissolving state appears because of collision of a tip of the arm with a sheath fragment. The dissolving state extinguishes the fragment together with the tip. After the loop has managed to eliminate obstacles in such a way, it reproduces the offspring correctly into the right area. However, since the length of the arm is changed in the process of elimination of fragments, a situation inconsistent with the mechanism of the loop has emerged in the parent, so its structure is consequently dissolved.
