I'm trying to understand the circuit presented in this video: https://youtu.be/qfgX93o8HzY?t=229
We states that when the power is first turned on, the left-most transistor has 0v at it's base so it is off - but my current understanding of electronics says it is actually on - for the same reason the other transistor is - there is a current via the 100k resistor direct to base.
He says that because the capacitor is connected to the Collector of the right-most transistor (which is itself at ~ ground) the base of left-most must also be at ground - However i cannot recreate this in PSpice (see below).
I'm missing something obvious/simple but its not quite clicking for me - So thanks in advance for any pointers in the right direction.
Edit: Looking further into the voltage traces when this is running, I'm struggling to explain why the observed voltage at the base of Q9 drops to -2.5V? I tried to reduce the circuit to something similar to see if that showed why the rise and fall of the voltage on the other side of the capacitor would cause this change but I think I fell down a rabbit hole:
