Handy storage for electrical appliances on the toilet tank. Also the fashionable pull chain to flush.

That is the result of owner remodeling when they have no skill or common sense.

I think Marion has it as close to right as possible from a photo. That large pipe is likely the original "main stack" required passive vent that every house must have. It should extend through and above the roof. The moved a wall, so now the stack is in the middle of the floor rather than in the wall behind the water closet as it would be 90+% of the time. That is a serious safety hazard as sewer/septic gases are highly dangerous. C6 as is.

^^^ Mr. Rex has it right.
Clearly a waste pipe, which should (until moved to inconspicuous spot),
be at least stuffed with a rag to keep noxious sewer gas out. Phew.

Actually, on second glance, that pipe looks "live", looks to me
like there are two 1.5" pipes feeding waste attached near the top,

Methane heating pod, drives a micro-generator, which can recharge a Tesla self-driving electric car. Its future stuff, worth more than 10 solar panels.
