Three men are called to a location that resembles a laboratory, and the artist, standing behind the camera, asks them a question: gDo you want to feel the Freedom of Spirit?h The subjects of the experiment answer in the positive. Then Men are then ordered to pick up gthe stickh that's on the floor and to pole gthe thingh with it. The stick doesn't appear on the screen for some time, and all we can hear is the constant, repetitive sound of rubbing. The possibilities of the observer's imagination begin to oddly unfold as gthe thingh continues to remain unrevealed.
