COMMENTS
Decree that (row 1) = (1). For n >= 2, row n consists of numbers in increasing order generated as follows: x+1 for each x in row n-1 together with -3/x for each nonzero x in row n-1, where duplicates are deleted as they occur. The number of numbers in row n is A243930(n). Conjecture: every rational number occurs exactly once in the array.

EXAMPLE
First 7 rows of the array of rationals:
1/1
-3/1 .. 2/1
-2/1 .. -3/2 .. 3/1
-1/1 .. -1/2 .. 3/2 ... 4/1
-3/4 .. 0/1 ... 1/2 ... 5/2 .. 5/1 .. 6/1
-6/1 .. -6/5 .. -3/5 .. 1/4 .. 7/2 .. 7/1
-12/1 . -5/1 .. -6/7 .. -3/7 . -1/5 . 2/5 . 5/4 . 9/2 . 8/1
The numerators, by rows:
1,-3,2,-2,-3,3,-1,-1,3,4,-3,0,1,5,5,6,-6,6,-3,1,7,7,-12,-5,-6,-3,-1,2,5,9,8.
