00:24 - Var. views of a wheel spinning in MLS and CU. It is part of a larger unidentified machine. Flickering light and bright sparks highlight the shape of the moving wheel. 04:09 - Same wheel in MS but with more of the room visible, windows in the background. The surroundings are still dark and the most obvious feature is the arc of bright pulsating light. Eventually the light fades and a small fire flickers at the top edge of the wheel. 07:01 - Var. views of the same scene in CU and MS, but a man approaches and begins to add something, causing the light to flare and grow brighter.
