It should extend two ceilings further than your pillar not counting the first ceiling which is attached to the pillar and should be placed three ceilings below the main platform.

Stone structures can withstand attack from everything but alpha predators the glowing, super-tough raptor and T. Use shims if needed to help level the blocks if the existing surface being built on is not level. Often a sloping wall will place in a position where a full wall can't and if you can place a sloping wall you can then replace it with a full wall, it will clip into the ground without issue.
