Any construct that acts to produce copies of itself; this
could be a living organism, an idea (see meme), a program
(see quine, worm, wabbit, fork bomb, and virus), a
pattern in a cellular automaton (see life), or
(speculatively) a robot or nanobot. It is even claimed by
some that Unix and C are the symbiotic halves of an
extremely successful replicator; see Unix conspiracy.
