Chapter 733: First Visit
The pitch-black hole with a diameter of 100 meters had a gray fog rolling within. As Xue Ying flew in, he felt a warm energy embracing him. He understood in his heart, ‘Is this the operating law of the cosmos?’
He had yet to transcend.
He was still an existence within the River of Time. The operating law of the cosmos would definitely protect him.
Flying within the hole, everything ahead was pitch black. There was the occasional distorted bright light. The time-space warping was unbearable for Xue Ying–his senses of the flow of time were being distorted as he traveled through the cosmos passage. A moment seemed very long to him, and a long time might seem fleeting. As he flew with this strange distorted feeling, Xue Ying soon saw the light at the end of the passage. Furthermore, an intangible energy shrouded over him.
A different Cultivator Cosmos contained a different set of operating laws!
‘Mn?’ Xue Ying was slightly startled.
Before he had left, his teacher, the Bloodshed God Emperor, had transmitted a set of intelligence reports to him, containing some simple information regarding entering another cosmos.
‘Usually, one will experience some form of rejection after entering another cosmos! Additionally, one would not be able to absorb the World Energy. In certain cosmoses, the severity of the rejection against outsiders is higher–it would even direct the existences in the cosmos to eliminate the outsider! According to “Gu Qian Luo”, it seems the Ancestor Mother Religion Cosmos is one of the more xenophobic ones. The moment they conquer our cosmos, we will be unable to absorb any energy. We would even be unable to hide, and would be constantly surrounded by those of the Ancestor Mother Religion!’
‘According to the intelligence I’ve collected, extremely xenophobic cosmoses are rarer. Most would simply reject the outsiders and prevent them from absorbing the World Energy. According to rumors, there are even some cosmoses which do not reject outsiders.”
Bloodshed God Emperor’s intelligence report did not contain much detailed information. Regardless, Xue Ying committed it to his memory.
He just felt the operating laws of another cosmos enveloping around him. Xue Ying could even feel an unseen encompassing feeling! He was not rejected by the cosmos!
‘I’ve even brought along many Deity crystals in fear of being unable to absorb the World Energy.’ Xue Ying sighed, ‘It seems that this cosmos which I’ve entered isn’t a xenophobic one!’
Even if he could not absorb the World Energy, Xue Ying was not worried. Other than his large stash of Deity Crystals, he could mainly rely on the “Walker’s Hidden Secret” and his comprehension of Laws and Profound Mysteries. Cultivating the “Walker’s Hidden Secret”relied on directing and absorbing Primal Chaos Void Energy. Regardless of the cosmos he was in, he could similarly direct Primal Chaos Void Energy.
After all, the energy did not originate from within a cosmos.
Xue Ying flew out of the pitch-black hole. This was his first time entering another cosmos, and thus, he had restrained his aura. He was currently hiding in the Mirage World too.
If discussing the abilities to conceal one’s aura, the Voidwalkers were exceptionally good at it. They could hide it to the extent that they would practically erase their presence and fade into the void! It was even more formidable than the robe refined by the Bloodshed God Emperor.
‘There are other beings in this cosmos.’ Xue Ying immediately discovered other lifeforms.
Under the starry sky.
There was a single desolate planet. A palace was currently constructed upright in a deserted desert. Within the palace, there was a muscular man drinking and eating alone. His gaze was fixed on the pitch-black hole 100 meters wide, slightly hidden in the distant starry sky. The muscular man was covered in black scales, and thorns protruded from his elbows and knees.
His face was crimson, and the top of his head was similarly covered in black scales. There was a maidservant with a long tail serving him by the side. Currently, he was just enjoying his meals and drinks while observing the distant cosmos passage.
‘This cosmos passage has just appeared not long ago. It is a small-scaled cosmos passage, and there should be someone coming from another cosmos.’ The black-scaled muscular man muttered, “Unless, the other entrance on the other cosmos did not appear?”
“I’ll wait a while longer.”
“Since this cosmos passage appeared within my territory and has been discovered by me, it is considered my fortune. If this outsider is slightly special, I might be able to sell it at a high price.” The black-scaled muscular man was very patient as he waited silently.
In the Mirage World, Xue Ying looked towards that lone planet. There was a palace on the planet that seemed hidden, but it could not be concealed from the ‘Mirage World’! Other than the servants who were around the Deity and World Deity realm, the strongest should be that single True God existence.
‘True God?’ Xue Ying frowned slightly.
He should not have discovered Xue Ying! He should be weaker in the realm as compared to Xue Ying.
‘I wonder how is he in the aspect of Laws and Profound mysteries, and if he could resist my illusory realm.” Xue Ying did not dare to act. After all, this was another cosmos, and he was an outsider! Under such an unknown situation, it was better for him not to reveal his methods.
Xue Ying was suddenly astonished.
He could not care about that True God who was waiting for his prey. At this moment, a huge wave had formed in the heart of Xue Ying–he was incomparably shocked!
‘This, this, this…’ Xue Ying was tongue-tied, ‘The time flow of this cosmos…’
He could sense his own true body via his soul.
His true body which was located in his original cosmos, and this current body which was in another cosmos… he was comparing the difference in time flow.
“3566 times?” Xue Ying muttered.
‘A single day in my hometown cosmos is 10 years in this place?’ Xue Ying could not believe it. How could the difference in time flow between the two cosmoses be so extreme?
“Treasure spirit, treasure spirit.”
The white-robed true body of Xue Ying which was located in his hometown asked the Black Gourd.
“Treasure spirit, could the time flow differ so much between two cosmoses?” Xue Ying asked.
The Black Gourd treasure spirit had followed by the Voidwalker Gu Qi for some time, and its experience was naturally greater: “There could be a very exaggerated difference between two cosmoses. Sometimes, the operating laws might even be directly opposite of each other. As for the time flow… since all cosmos exist in the Primal Chaos Void, they are all influenced by the Primal Chaos Void. Thus, most time flows would usually not have a large difference. The time flow on your original cosmos is considered one of the more ordinary ones! As for other cosmoses, the difference in their time flow would usually be less than ten times as compared to your original cosmos. Some are slower and some faster.”
“Less than ten times? But, but this cosmos which I entered has a time flow 3,566 times faster than that in my hometown cosmos!”
“What? Over 3,000 times? This…”
“Why?” Xue Ying carried on asking.
“Some cosmoses emerged naturally in the Primal Chaos Void, and some are created by terrifying existences! Those who could construct cosmoses are usually at the level of Forefather Tian Yu or Voidwalker Gu Qi.” The Black Gourd treasure spirit explained, “If the cosmos was created by someone, then how the cosmos looks like and how it works would be governed by the creator! But to maintain the time flow of a cosmos at such terrifying speed is truly an unfathomable and troublesome matter.”
The Black Gourd treasure spirit continued, “Regardless, we can be certain that this cosmos you entered should have been created by an ancient existence! The accelerated time flow must also have been deliberately set by him.”
“I understand.” Xue Ying muttered.
After understanding the circumstances from the treasure spirit, Xue Ying became more vigilant. An existence on the level of Forefather Tian Yu and Gu Qi–someone who could create a cosmos and was willing to accelerate and maintain time at such a high speed meant that this cosmos was exceedingly extraordinary! He had better carefully maintained a low profile.
Naturally, knowing that the time flow difference was over 3,000 times made him thrilled. Just this accelerated time flow alone made his trip worthwhile! He could rely on this time difference to properly cultivate. The war with the Ancestor Mother Religion had progressed very quickly. The accelerated time flow would allow him to have a significant increase in strength.
‘I’ll hurry up and find someone weak, and control him using my illusory realm to get an approximate understanding of this cosmos.’
Xue Ying teleported and vanished.
And the black-scaled muscular man remained in wait for his prey. Unbeknownst to him, Xue Ying was long gone.
