Ah, someone sharp enough to see the crux of the biscuit.

 

The machine has the interesting property that it can begin its behavior 

with very much less than one half of itself still not constructed, and yet 

it can with this small portion construct the remainder of its configuration.

 

Further, this configuration cannot self-replicate without having 100% of 

its configuration in the constructed state.

That you built a machine that built itself would imply that you built
yourself.  Which implies you arose from nothing, otherwise there would have
been a prior part of you which you didn't build.
