It is pitch black when Swain first meets Selexin and he has no idea where he is or what's going on. Once the light is switched on he sees Selexin and realises they are at the top of a stairwell. All Swain wants to do is get out and go home, but Selexin explains that no-one can leave until the Presidian is over. Once admitted to the labyrinth, contestants are unable to leave. The building is electrified, as much to prevent people leaving as to prevent them entering.
