“The plants have their stages of withering, and the worlds have their periods collapse. Similarly, the cosmos will rise and fall. From the beginning when the cosmos emerges until the Great Apocalypse, this period of time could be considered as an epoch.” Bloodshed God Emperor looked at Xue Ying, “Just like how the mortal realm’s mortal world all last differently, every epoch has a different length too. If we, the lifeforms created a huge burden on the cosmos, or that we destroyed too much, then this cosmos will be shorter, and it will enter the period of Great Apocalypse in a shorter time.”
Xue Ying was carefully listening.
“Strictly speaking, our cosmos epoch is actually the eighth cosmos epoch.” Bloodshed God Emperor sighed, “And it is one of the more ordinary ones. According to the experts who emerged, the most dazzling one is during the third cosmos epoch! The third cosmos epoch saw two amazing existences emerging. One was the Lake Heart Island Master, and the other was Ancestor Devil.”
“The eighth cosmos epoch?” Xue Ying slightly nodded.
“Those were the past. Now, we can only find some clues to their existences in the historical remains.” Bloodshed God Emperor explained, “Alright, now, you should focus more on cultivating and transcend as soon as possible! With your talent, if you are fast enough, you should be able to transcend in a million years.”
Xue Ying felt that his teacher’s hope for him was indeed tremendous. Transcending in a million years?
“Disciple will try my best.” Xue Ying answered.
“Haha…” Bloodshed God Emperor did not think much about it. Instead, he changed the topic, “I originally said that after exploring the ancient cavern dwelling, I’ll select a good reward for you. But the improvement of your combat power has been faster than I expected. Now that you are close to a Paragon combat power, it isn’t appropriate for you to continue seeking power, and instead, you should grasp hold of the law of the world. For a moment, I truly do not have any treasures for you.”
“This treasure will be left temporarily with me. Wait until you transcend, and I’ll give you, greatly increasing your hopes of opening your Dao path.” Bloodshed God Emperor chuckled.
“Disciple isn’t in a rush. The strongest disciple’s combat power is, the better the treasure teacher will give to me.” Xue Ying laughed too.
“Alright.” Bloodshed God Emperor laughed as well, “Go, go and hurry up with your own matters.”
“Disciple will withdraw now.”
Xue Ying bowed before leaving the place.
Bloodshed God Emperor saw Xue Ying going, and could not help but smile and nod. In his long years of cultivation, the loved ones would gradually leave. Instead, it was the ‘disciples’ who would accompany him for a longer period of time! To Bloodshed God Emperor, the teacher-disciple relationship would eventually become their most important relationship. Naturally, those ’emotionless descendants’ were another matter.
Leaving the abode of his teacher, Xue Ying flew towards the Crimson Stone Courtyard.
Flying in the high sky, he could not tear through space here and could only fly slowly.
As he flew, Xue Ying was carefully looking at the massive amount of information provided by his teacher. With the identity of Bloodshed God Emperor, the information he gave was very much detailed, allowing Xue Ying to have a more comprehensive understanding of the entire cosmos.
‘So, the reason why Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master is unable to transcend is due to this. No wonder that commander from the Destruction Legion is feeling extremely regretful.’ Xue Ying thought.
During ordinary cultivation, one would begin to sense other side Deity Hearts after becoming a stage four World Deity before finally, once the foundation was thick enough, one would comprehend and fuse all laws of profound mysteries into the complete entity–the law of the world! That would be when one transcended to become a True God.
After becoming a True God, one would begin analyzing other secret techniques or self-created secret skills, studying the laws of profound mysteries before finally, one was able to rise above the law of the world, a ‘Dao’! As one opened his own Dao path, he would become a Paragon.
Opening one’s own Dao… did not mean one was mature. It had to be perfected continuously. As long as this Dao which one opened had reached true eternity, one would become a ‘Ruler’.
For instance, Bloodshed God Emperor had opened his ‘Dao of Bloodshed’, ‘Dao of Shadow’ and ‘Dao of Destruction’.
Temporal Island Lord had opened the ‘Dao of Time-Space’.
As an example, to open this ‘Dao of Time-Space’, one would primarily gain a deeper understanding towards the foundation of the laws of profound mystery behind time-space. After comprehending a deeper and more profound time-space profound mystery, he would then fuse it together with his current comprehension, forming the ‘Dao of Time-Space’. Thus, to open the ‘Dao of Time-Space’, there was no need to comprehend the Creation of Heaven Deity Heart, Karma Deity Heart and the rest. And there was no need to comprehend the complete law of the world.
Theoretically speaking, if a stage four World Deity’s realm reached an adequately profound stage, he could open his own Dao path too.
‘Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master’ had precisely opened his ‘Dao of Destructive Lightning’ before comprehending the complete law of the world as a stage four World Deity then. Ever since, he was able to gain the combat power of a Paragon, yet he could not transcend.
‘According to the records.’
Xue Ying thought, ‘Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master is the only one to open his Dao path as a stage four World Deity in this cosmos epoch. According to the description of teacher’s information, even across the many cosmos epochs, those who achieved this stage at a stage four World Deity realm could be counted with one’s fingers.’
Indeed, that’s the case.
There were very very few powerful existences who could reach the power of a Paragon realm despite cultivating for a long period of time! Those who could open their own Dao path were even fewer.
Clearly, opening one’s own Dao was harder than comprehending the complete law of the world.
Under ordinary circumstances still, it wasn’t the case that one could open his Dao path as a stage four World Deity.
‘But if a talent happens to appear… it might have a contrary effect.’ Xue Ying sighed, ‘Transcending will be an even more arduous task.’
What was transcending?
Transcending meant pulling out from the River of Time, leaping onto the river bank.
Being submerged in the River of Time, the only way to escape its restriction was with the aid of a complete law of eternity.
The lives within the River of Time had different degrees of strength. Mortals were small and feeble. Transcendents were weak and small too. Deities and World Deities were gradually stronger! Like Xue Ying, his body was extremely huge in the River of Time, and was much bigger than normal stage four World Deities!
The bigger his body, the stronger the restriction force from the River of Time!
Thus, even if he reincarnated, those whose body was huge had a harder time reincarnating because they were ‘too steeped’ in it, and ‘could not be pulled out’!
And Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master?
Being a stage four World Deity who opened his own Dao path, his body was a hundred times bigger than Xue Ying’s! With how big his body was, even if he comprehended the complete law of the world, under the help of the law of the world, he would still be unable to escape from the restriction by the ‘River of Time’! He had to use a stronger more eternal law, and that was for him to become a Ruler.
Becoming a Ruler, the Dao he opened would be perfected and eternal. Only by borrowing this could he escape.
‘Opening his Dao as a Stage four World Deity, only by becoming a Ruler could he transcend.’ Xue Ying shook his head, ‘Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master and the commander of the Destruction Legion, that is truly pitiable.’
‘No wonder, one could not be too reliant on strength, seeking the extremes of secret techniques. Usually, cultivators would not fall into such predicament. My talent might be high, and I have always been pursuing secret techniques to increase in my power. Who knows, I might really be that ‘fortuitous’ in opening my Dao path as a stage four World Deity, and similarly encountering this issue.’ Xue Ying grinned.
He knew that this probability was extremely low. Even across the many epochs, those who did it could be counted with one’s finger!
Even if he deliberately chased after power, he might not be able to do it. Otherwise, Nine Yang Palace Head, Violet-Gowned Hex Emperor, King Patrol Devil and the others would have become a Paragon after so many years.
‘Amongst the ordinary World Deities, they thought Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master is able to become so heaven-shattering by relying on his absolute art.’ Xue Ying shook his head, ‘Now that I know of it, it is indeed a huge joke!’
Actually, he had long been suspicious of it.
Why was Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master so dazzling? His absolute art was very unique?
So would that mean that the absolute arts of those Bloodshed God Emperor and the other Rulers could not compare with that of Bamboo Mountain’s? Now that he was stronger, Xue Ying finally knew of the behind-the-scenes’ secret.
