It is like a dream journal meets a glossary complete with cross-references and see also suggestions.

Let’s take a trip, shall we?
AMERICA: BANDE A PART
A little group distinct in its positioning … and what does “BANDE A PART” reveal?
BANDE A PART: The end of the FILM. No one dies. They drive to SOUTH AMERICA. A RED LINE traces their movement around the WORLD on a GLOBE. The SCREEN reads Fin.
So we have intimations of closure. One more hop through the references.
FILM: [an extensive two and half page entry]
SOUTH AMERICA: BANDE A PART
RED LINE: [no entry for RED LINE but an entry for RED: BANDE A PART, BIRD, BLOOD, BLUE, CARE, CHANDELIER, CLASSROOM, DRESS, FUNERAL, HEXAGON, LAST SUPPER, MADRID, MAKEUP, MAN, MIRROR, PINK, PORNOGRAPHY, SCROLL, STAIRS, STAR, THEATRE, UNDERWEAR and an entry for LINE: BANDE A PART, FUNERAL, METRO, PINK, ROOM, SCROLL, STREET]
WORLD: BANDE A PART
GLOBE: BANDE A PART
SCREEN: BANDE A PART, CHAIR, COSTUME, FILM, HEXAGON, HOUSE, ISLAND, PORNOGRAPHY, SCROLL, VIDEO
Only through FILM and SCREEN and the RED [broken] LINE does the story continue. Otherwise it circles back upon itself. Overdetermination at work.
And so for day 317
