A ground-breaking is symbolic of beginning a major construction. Imagine breaking ground for a viral something that would keep on building, exponentially, for good or evil, throughout the universe— something that builds builders. The robot arms on the left are making more robot arms, the idea being that those can make others, and so on.

Scene on a distant planet-- a lone figure breaks ground while robot arms self-replicate
