* ApocalypseWow: [[spoiler:The Earth dissolves into a sphere of noocytes, which combined proceed to break reality to such an extent they then AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence, taking the Earth and humanity with them.]]

For example, towards the end of ''Blood Music'' the entirety of North America is covered by a biological mass where each cell acts as an individual observer. The sheer concentration of this threatens to cause reality to break apart.
