One is aware of this place only through song of the night. Only halfway between sleep and awake, can one even know of this place.

In this place, far far above, and beyond dreamers' gold, not only does the water reflect the sky. The sky, too, reflects the birds, and the music, and even the full moon, once in great while.

This place, real as it is, is a fairy tale. Stories told, thoughts remembered, nights left awake, or slept soundly; this, too, shall come to pass.

Additionally, inasmuch as between the two of us, neither could come up with a plan of what to do to save our lives, or possibly the universe has simply shrunk to contain only ourselves and our abode, we must allow the following:

Freezing precipitation, freezing precipitation, freezing precipitation.

The reflexive property states that an element always has the same relation to itself. That is to say, a = a.

Meow, let's apply this to cats:

If your hand lies on top of a cat, by the reflexive rule, your hand still lies on top of the cat. Applying velocity to your hand, as long as it remains on the cat, then your hand is still on the cat, which is to say, petting a cat is possible as long as it is on top of the cat.

If your hand lies on top of a cat, and that cat lies on top of another cat, by the transitive property, your hand lies on both cats. Therefore, petting the first cat implies that you are petting the second cat as well. As stated ealier, the transitive property can be applied infinitely for an infinite set. Therefore, if you have an infinite stack of cats, petting the topmost cat will give you infinite pleasure, as long as you like petting cats.

Then again, an just seeing an infinite stack of cats may be enough. So cute!
