9-quine string animation

I use the chemlambda strings version to show  how the 9-quine works. [What is a quine in chemlambda? See here.]

The 9-quine is the smallest quine in chemlambda which does not have a termination node.  There exist smaller quines if the termination node is admitted. For example  the chemlambda equivalent of a quine from Interaction Combinators  which appears in Lafont’ foundational article.

As you see this version is conservative and there are no enzymes.

I shall come back with a post which explains why and how the 9-quine dies. It is of course due to the conflicts in chemlambda, see the examples from the page on chemlambda v2.
