When an ensemble of 2000 attractive helices are simulated they soon begin to form a web of condensed
quasi-crystalline formations. In their final configuration the helices are expected to organize into
a liquid crystalline phase of defined spatial symmetry. However, observing the formation of such phases
in simulations would require very long simulation times. The animation shows the view as the virtual
camera moves through the simulation system in its intermediate, web-like configuration.
