One: Prologue Synopsis: the prologue happens in time right after all the rest of the events in the movie- Proog is remembering/reconstructing after Emo is gone. The scene shows the same location as the final scene, with many hints as to what happened there.

Two: Switchboard trap Synopsis: The location is a large canyon with a slender bridge in the middle of it. The canyon resembles two sides of a large telephone switchboard (pre-digital stuff). Proog pushes Emo aside as giant scissor-hooked switchboard wires speed past their heads. The action of Proog and Emo is close to that of one person pushing the other out of the way of a speeding car.
Three: Telephone/Lecture Synopsis: after the switchboard, Proog gets Emo to run along with him, fleeing the sources of Proog's paranoia. We get to see the characters running through a landscape filled with telegraph/telephone poles and crisscrossing wires, like a giant web. The wires buzz with electricity, and with the noise of chattery conversations that seem to actively hunt the two characters down. They finally reach a room with a fairly innocuous looking phone that Proog reveals as the worst trap of them all.
PROOG (joined by phone voices) You, we, could easily die out here
PROOG and the voices (contd.) To the sounds of the machine
To your breathing
Sound of two men breathing, . Emo laughs as if he can't take it seriously-
Four: Typewriter synopsis: Proog leads Emo over a seemingly uncrossable abyss. Proog steps out confidently into the void, and typewriter keys fly up to meet his feet. He dances an intricate dance over the keys, motioning for emo to follow suite. Emo tries to follow, but ultimately just walks, the keys flying up to his feet. Emo seems indifferent.
As they leave the shot, PROOG's last words echo in the vastness...
Five: Proog shows Emo stuff Synopsis: Emo and Proog are in some part of the machine- current thinking is it is the slingshot/elevator. that goes up through the "meat-grinder" in this case, a giant camera zoom lens, with menacingly closing irises. The elevator takes the characters up into a void where Emo sees "nothing at all" and then hurls them back down into the machine.
Six: Which way Synopsis: Emo and Proog fall from the elevator platform to the midst of an oily sea pock-marked with Projectors modeled after WWII sea fortresses. Each projector can project an image, including holographic images. Once such image is a door, which emits faint music like that from a bar. Emo wants to go there, but Proog says it's a siren song, a trap, and tells him not to. As Proog tries to convince Emo, he changes the image, but it is always attractive to Emo.. probably always some kind of door in it.
EMO Listen Proog! Do you hear that! Can we go here?
Seven: Emo flips out synopsis: following the little scuffle at the safe place, we are in the tiled room. Proog makes a last attempt to convince Emo that his view/ideas are perfect. Emo shocks him by claiming he doesn't see it at all, which prompts him to slap Emo. Emo walks off, followed by proog.
