COMMENTS

Given the initial row "2 2", is the rest of the triangle forced? If not, should this version have an additional clause in the definition saying "lexicographically earliest, given the first row"?
Eric Angelini asks if there is a similar triangle (selfdescribing and infinite) that contains at least one odd number.

EXAMPLE

Triangle begins:
2 2
4 2 2 4
6 2 4 4 2 6
8 2 6 4 4 6 2 8
10 2 8 4 6 6 4 8 2 10
12 2 10 4 8 6 6 8 4 10 2 12
14 2 12 4 10 6 8 8 6 10 4 12 2 14
16 2 14 4 12 6 10 8 8 10 6 12 4 14 2 16
18 2 16 4 14 6 12 8 10 10 8 12 6 14 4 16 2 18
20 2 18 4 16 6 14 8 12 10 10 12 8 14 6 16 4 18 2 20
...
Top line says: I see two integers "2" so far
Next line says: I see four integers "2" and two integers "4" so far
Next line says: I see six integers "2", four integers "4" and two integers "6" so far
etc.
The counts are thus cumulative. And the (easytobuild) array infinite.
