Use your powers to manipulate reality and detect possible voids within the white object. Or knock and see if it is hollow.

Yes.
AKA Rvan. That's R.van; you pronounce it as "Ar-van", not "R-van".

Try to have a conversation with the white object. Maybe it's friendly.
Dear Family,
Thanks for putting empty boxes back in the cabinet. There's nothing like having disappointment for breakfast.

That's...

Actually, that's not a bad idea. Even with your ENERGY depleted to almost nothing, ACEIONIC MANIPULATION never stopped being a thing that you could do or anything. You certainly don't have enough energy to perform a HYPERSPECTRAL SCAN, but perhaps you can ascertain as to whether this thing is hollow through simple ENERGY PROJECTION.

This is the most sensible idea you've had all day. Perhaps your usual LOGICAL MINDSET is beginning to reassert itself, or, more likely, karma is going to rear its head and you'll end up face down in the mud for using too many CAPITALISED TERMS and SPECIALIST TERMINOLOGY. You feel the universe might not look kindly on too much departure from the established SETTING, and if there is one thing that this place is not short of, its mud. Actually, that gives you an idea for something that you might be able to try later, but you don't think that you have time for that kind of mess right now, even if it would be productive. Instead, you roll up your sleeves and lie down in a particular potent beam of sunlight for 10 minutes in an attempt to gain enough energy to investigate the white object.

ENERGY LEVELS: 0.1x10^-15/15 000 000 AVm

Your amulet barely even registers the change. Still, it should be enough. You send a tenuous tendril of invisible energy towards the WHITE OBJECT, and...!!!!

It fails to penetrate.

Well, what an utter waste of time that was.

> ...Or knock and see if it is hollow.

Why on Earth did you not think to do this in the first place? Somewhere, in a dimension roughly adjacent to your own, karma is surely cackling.

You knock upon the white surface. It appears to be entirely solid. So much for any inner VOIDS, although to be honest you are not sure how knowledge of these would have helped you to identify the object anyway. Given that your ENERGY PROJECTION was unable to breach the surface, the odds of getting inside of it would have been extremely low. Whatever this object is, it is either shielded against intrusion or almost infinitely DENSE. You are going to guess the former, because the second option would suggest that this nondescript WHITE OBJECT was actually a cleverly disguised GRAVITATIONAL SINGULARITY. If you were standing on top a black hole you would probably know about it by now. Alas, but irony would not make your death worthwhile, or any less painful.

Now that you think about it, the fact that the white object is so heavily protected probably does more to suggest its true nature than the fact that it was hollow ever would.

> Alternatively, try uncovering the rest of the white object, going along the edge.

You sigh, and resign yourself to another session of mindless physical labour.

Picking up your excavations from where you left off, you continue to try and clear away the SOIL around the object. You have certainly become more adept at scrabbling away at the hard packed dirt with nothing but your hands and a now thoroughly abused wooden sign, but it still takes you a good forty minutes to clean away the entire upper face of the object to reveal a seemingly perfect CIRCLE of white material, about four metres wide, and dropping off at 90 degrees all the way around. Oddly the centre of the circle seems to be roughly where the sign was placed. You wonder if there is any deeper meaning to this, and decide that there is not.

Furthermore, and to your increasing dismay, you quickly discover that the edge of the surface is apparently exceptionally sharp. You find you have to be careful not to touch the edge even slightly, because the material seems to be showing a remarkable ability to slice right through your skin. Similarly, once you have scraped the dirt off of the top surface of the material, you discover that it is extremely slippery, and your BOOTS can't seem to find any grip on it.

What the hell is this stuff?

Experimentally, you dig downwards alongside one of the sides of the object. You go down for about 60 centimetres before encountering yet another white surface, this one shaped at an odd angle and slanting away from what you now recognise to be a cylinder sticking up from what is likely a larger mass of material. Seriously, something extremely odd is going on here. You don't know where you are but this discovery seems rather out of place in your presumed setting.

> Try to have a conversation with the white object. Maybe it's friendly.

All things considered, this wouldn't surprise you.

"Hello," you venture, "do you have anything to say?"

The white object stares at you reproachfully. Which is to say, it does nothing at all. Well, it was always a long shot.

> Throw a temper tantrum and punch and kick the white object until something breaks, whether it be the object or one of your bones.

You would, but all that digging has you worn out. Instead, you just sort of collapse on the hill next to your new WHITE CIRCULAR PAL and contemplate your life choices.

Once you're done doing that, though;

I think to myself for a moment.
"Do I still have any seeds or grass or whatever it was I picked up some time ago?"
Then I check for it, because I might have forgot.

You check in your satchel. The grass is still there, if perhaps a little drier than it was; you shovelled quite a bit in earlier.

You wonder where you're going with this.

I try to yawn once on purpose, if I then yawn once more it meens that I am tired.
In which case I will check if there's any good place to lay down around here, if not I will make a makeshift bed with some grass and using the cover of the white object.
