COMMENTS

Empirical observations:
The sequence starting with a single row of ON cells is A266382.
Every 2^n1 step of iteration generates the biggest gap (g) between two rows.
The prime factors for numbers in this sequence up to the 31st term are: 3,7,11,17,19,31,43,257,331,5419,65537,715827883,77158673929.
