I think there I am. This was all in my dream and thus it is reality.

There is a penny on the pile. Norevan sleeps, and dreams of ceasless, maddening nightmares from the abyss, born in the mind of xkcd follower. Meanwhile, a false Norevan tries helplessly to close a hole in the fabric of reality. Meanwhile, the fabric of reality is trying had to close the fabric of reality attempts inside the dream.

The crystalline madness caused by the ravening horrors of my sleep causes me to recognize a higher level of reality, which is that there we are being dreamed by a cat.

There both is and is not a penny on the pile. Norevan sleeps, and does not sleep, and dreams of what both are and are not ceasless, maddening nightmares from the abyss, born in the mind of xkcd follower. Meanwhile, what both is and isn't a false Norevan tries helplessly to close a hole in the fabric of reality. Meanwhile, the fabric of reality is trying had to close the fabric of reality attempts inside the dream.

You know what this place needs? Some nostalgia. I add the pile's original form to the pile.

There is now a penny on the pile. Also, There is now a jar of laughter at the face of danger, a hot dog, Snoop Dogg and a snoop snoop poopie dog fighting, a kennel, a crowd of spectators (both online and off), a video camera, a computer and a remade internet, and an angry guy who doesn't exist. All on the pile.

In an unknown incident, not proven by the governments of the world, the mountain disappeared in a series of black holes. No one can be credited for it.
