cheaters: hyper-hyper-parasites

The cooperative social system of hyper-parasites is subject to cheating, and is eventually invaded by hyper-hyper-parasites (Fig. 2). These cheaters (e.g., 0027aab) position themselves between aggregating hyper-parasites so that when the instruction pointer is passed between them, they capture it.
