Nine is an unstable pattern that appears as a part of many other patterns. It can be attached to various patterns to form still lifes, in which case it is usually interpreted as an integral sign in siamese configuration, e.g. integral with hook or integral with tub. It can also be hassled to form oscillators, e.g. confused eaters.

By itself, nine evolves into block and glider after one generation.
