I haven't used OSX myself, but this

> Self: fatal error: Can't read initial world from G4/0S9:Applications
> (Mac OS 9):Self:objects:Demo.snap!

simply means that the Self program couldn't open the named file 
("G4..snap") for reading.

Before that, I would check to see if the file has read permission 
enabled for the user you are executing Self with.

There is a comment on the download page that you should use Carbon 1.1 
with Mac OS X for Self 4.1.3

Good luck,
