Tra i rottami di uno sfasciacarrozze giacciono abbandonati dei motomen, avanzi di esperimenti mal riusciti, vivi e pensanti, ma ormai inutili. La pressa è pronta a inghiottirli. In alto un corvo osserva la scena.

After a slow close-up of the painting The Parable of the Blind, by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, we are suddenly among the scrap in a car breaker's yard, where we see some motomen lying abandoned. They are alive and cognizant, but no longer of any use. The crusher is ready to devour them. A raven on high observes the scene.
