In this run there are two early ruptures at time 22 and 119, severely damaging the original membrane. An inward spiral forms. Coincidentally, another rupture allows the inward spiral to close forming a ``new'' membrane at time 245, with the morphology shown in figure 15. However, the cavity is now linear and thus does not afford any reaction sites for production of new L particles. This entity is therefore not capable of re-establishing the autopoietic reaction network.
