This episode is 95% re-used material: the survival contest from A Landing Strip In The Jungle, street preachers and River Valley camp from Let Me Not Dream, the father and son from Jewish Blues, the naughty yogi and the masochist in church from Bad, the prison psychologist from Nightride, 2 previously-unused segments, ending up with all the things Ryan Cutrona sees god in from Great Lives.
3 fellows compete for the most difficult trial to survive, 1 in the Mato Grasso, Lester Ainslie swallowed by a whale - they disparage each other's experiences… 
12:30: A street preacher tells people they need spiritual change, not political change; the crowd jeers.
15:10: The director of River Valley camp (Arthur Miller), a sadistic summer camp for boys in the Brazilian Amazon, describes the camp to Joe while showing slides. It's protected by a long stretch of barren land, then 'electronic' barbed wire, and a 200-foot gate. The rifle, archery, and blow-gun ranges use the boys as targets. He calls pain 'deeper understanding'.
20:40: A street preacher enjoins his listeners to chant, 'Hare Krishna'. The River Valley director's voice can be made out in the background.
22:10: The River Valley director shows slides of 'fun night' - Joe observes that they don't seem to be having fun. Staff get to experiment on the campers.
24:50: Congregation finishes singing a hymn, a preacher talks, then they sing another hymn. The River Valley director's voice can be made out in the background.
25:50: The director describes visitors' day, during which the parents can't see the children and vice-versa. Letters between campers and parents are disposed of.
36:50: The Christian street preacher is back, talking with the crowd.
41:10: A Jewish fellow visits his son, finds out he's converted to Christianity.
43:30: 'I go to church I like to sprinkle two piles of broken glass, molten ashes, thumbtacks, and carpet tacks on the floor and kneel down on them for hours…' - A masochist tells us what he does in church.
46:20: A naughty yogi falls for hippie girls with 'big boobies'.
47:10: A psychologist (a Black man?) talks to someone who, police officers allege, threatened to kill his wife and children. He prays that he not do anything crazy.
