III: "Discovery" (music: Lifeson) – 3:29 (6:45—10:14)

The story of '2112' resembles Ayn Rand's novella "Anthem", which the band acknowledges in the booklet by mentioning "the genius of Ayn Rand".

A "Classic Albums" double documentary has been made for "2112" and "Moving Pictures", chronicling their inception, recording process and legacy.

Recording information:

Recorded at Toronto Sound Studios, Toronto, ON, Canada; February 1976
