1. Even snails can accelerate
2. 非常饿了 (feichang e le), "very hungry" or the emergence of the machine
3. Scandalous interference sizzle slowly inside or the dialogue of Knowledge and the Unknown
4. Area reservada para especies salvajes
5. Lucifer’s inner light illuminates them
6. Aktion von licht oder intensiver strahlung im all
