Chapter 737: 18 Different Cosmos Cultivation Systems
“The banquet is ready, let’s go.” The Third Highness led his group of protectors towards the banquet. After the brief exchange, the other protectors were much more welcoming towards Xue Ying.
Xue Ying also joined the banquet, as it was a rare chance to enjoy delicacies from another cosmos. The life forms in this cosmos all had fleshly bodies, hence the local food was still palatable for Xue Ying. However, metallic life forms, like that protector that Xue Ying had just sparred with, only drank wine and did not touch the food at all.
After the banquet, Xue Ying was led to his dwelling.
“Sir Dong Bo, this is your cave dwelling.” A servant had been specially sent to lead Xue Ying over, and another group of servants was stationed at the cave entrance to welcome Xue Ying.
“Greetings to master.” The servants at the cave entrance greeted respectfully.
All of them knew that from this day onward, their lives belonged to this powerful alien expert! Even if he killed them in a fit of rage, there was nothing they could do about it.
Xue Ying’s gaze swept over the group of servants. Amongst them, the strongest was at the stage two World Deity level, while the majority were at the Deity level.
“I will be cultivating. Don’t disturb me if there’s nothing important,” ordered Xue Ying.
“Understood.” All of them felt relieved. Fortunately, their master seemed to the type who loved to cultivate and would probably spend long periods of time cultivating.
With a loud rumble, the massive door of the cultivation hall in Xue Ying’s cave-dwelling closed shut. Waving his hand, a black ring landed on the long table in the hall. His body spontaneously vanished, entering into the Eden world within the black ring.
Within a prairie in the Eden world. Xue Ying was seated cross-legged on this prairie, inspecting the weapon, robe, ship, and other items which were bestowed on him by the Third Highness. He inwardly approved, ‘This spear is no less precious than my Blood Serpent Spear, and the ship is another precious treasure. The black robes seem ordinary, yet its material is extremely durable, and it can conceal one’s aura… These three treasures will definitely incite envy in many of the Paragons back in my cosmos.’
Just from this inspection, it was obvious that this cosmos had many more treasures than his own.
He flipped his palm, and the lump of crystal appeared. Xue Ying stared at it with fervor in his eyes. This was what he desired the most.
Any cosmos cultivation system was the crystallization of their cosmos infinite wisdom and their way to strength!
‘Let’s start on the cultivation system from these 18 cosmoses.’ Calming himself, Xue Ying freed himself from all distractions and immersed his consciousness into the crystal. A large volume of information was instantly transmitted into his mind, containing the full extent of the cultivation systems and their corresponding techniques, along with full explanations for all of them! These explanations must have been recorded by the experts from this cosmos who served under the Third Highness.
The bloodline cultivation system relied primarily on awakening the cultivator’s bloodline. However, not disregard other methods., incorporating the advantageous aspects of other cultivation systems into their own to further increase their strength.
Time flew by…
Though Xue Ying had a powerful soul, he still had to spend three whole days before he finished looking through all 18 different cultivation systems.
‘So it’s like this.’
Having looked through all 18 cultivation systems, he made comparisons and drew a conclusion as a result.
‘There are two types of cosmoses: those that were naturally formed, and those there were created by ancient existences. Likewise, there are two main types of cultivation systems!’ pondered Xue Ying.
‘The first type of cultivation system is in the form of a guidance left behind by ancient existences. These cultivation systems are like a broad pavement; practitioners using this cultivation system would have a smoother journey and be able to cultivate to an extremely high level.’
‘The second type would be found in those naturally formed cosmoses. Without any guidance, the lifeforms in those cosmoses can only grope on using their own methods. In order to survive, become stronger, and live longer, they would have to figure out and create their own cultivation methods. Over time, the most formidable and easily disseminated method would become the mainstream cultivation method within the cosmos and would be continuously refined by countless individuals throughout the years. However, no matter how perfect it becomes, the cultivation system will ultimately be limited by one’s own vision and scope, and will nonetheless contain some imperfections.’
Xue Ying secretly felt grateful.
He was glad that his cosmos had been created by Forefather Tian Yu, and that Xue Ying had received his guidance. Thus, the laws and profound mysteries system had been laid from start to end already.
‘Of these 18 cultivation systems, there’s actually the Ancestor Mother Religion cultivation system included amongst them.’ From this information, Xue Ying understood how the people from the Ancestor Mother Religion cultivate.
Ancestor Mother Religion…
They regarded the world as their cradle with themselves as infants, allowing for the heavens and earth to nurture and nourish them.
Upon possessing enough strength, they were able to use a cosmos as an embryo to nourish their bodies. This required them to need to build the Ancestor Mother Altar to make any cosmos suitable for their cultivation system. The thing they worship wasn’t the world nor the cosmos, but an incomparably great existence–the Ancestor Mother! To them, the Ancestor Mother was just like their mother. Just like how any mother would giving birth and raising her child, they would become powerful in a similar fashion. Following the Ancestor Mother system would enable them to attain unimaginable power. Although its initial stage appeared relatively crude, it would get progressively bizarre and weird towards the end.
Even if they entered Primal Chaos Void, they still had ways to modify Primal Chaos Void to their advantage.
Several abilities record and some techniques of Ancestor Mother Religion made Xue Ying expression change.
‘What a formidable cultivation system.’ Xue Ying’s real body in his homeworld immediately transmitted the information to his teacher, Bloodshed God Emperor.
With great surprise, the Bloodshed God-Emperor asked, “Xue Ying, you went to the Ancestor Mother Religion cosmos?”
“No, instead I went into a powerful cosmos! This cosmos has much information on the various cultivation systems. One of it is a piece of information about Ancestor Mother Religion cultivation system.” replied Xue Ying.
“Many cultivation systems? Xue Ying, you have to be careful. It’s not a good thing to be greedy.” The Bloodshed God-Emperor warned.
“I understand.” After he attained the “Walker’s Hidden Secret”, he understood that not every cultivation system could complement each other. Some could even be so different and not be so suitable to be practiced simultaneously. That was why it would be optimal to just practice one or two other systems which complemented the cultivator’s original cultivation system.
According to what his Voidwalker master, Gu Qi, said, the Voidwalker system and the Law and Profound Mysteries system were two systems that could be cultivated simultaneously. One cultivated the physical body while the other focused on the comprehension of the laws and profound mysteries.
After his initial introduction to the various cultivation systems, Xue Ying tried to practice the cultivation system. Of the 18 cultivation systems, he could only practice eight of them since there were some problems with the other systems. For example, the bloodline cultivation systems required one to possess certain bloodline to cultivate. Since he wasn’t a native of this cosmos and did not have its bloodline, he couldn’t practice their cultivation system. Lifeforms like Protector Cong possessed metallic bodies. Their cultivation depended mainly on their bodies. Nonetheless, they were unlike from flesh-based lifeforms and could naturally not be able to cultivate any laws and profound mysteries systems.
The Ancestor Mother Religion had harsh demands on the environment the lower the level of cultivation. Xue Ying could not cultivate in this as well.
‘Only by truly practicing it would one unravel the marvels of these cultivation systems.’ Xue Ying began trying out the eight cultivation systems which he could cultivate in.
Of these eight cultivation systems, Xue Ying planned to make some in-depth attempt to cultivate each of them. He planned to practice each cultivation system for a thousand years. With his talent in comprehension, he felt a thousand years was enough time to gain an adequate in-depth understanding of each cultivation system and its essence.
Based on the records present within the crystal, of these eight cultivation systems, two of them could be cultivated all the way to the extreme, while the other six have some defects in them.
Of the 2 that could be practiced till the end, the first was known as the ‘Hex’. They studied the myriad objects present in the cosmos, unraveling the deepest level of secrets and mysteries from their research. By using these secrets, Hexers could become powerful! There was only a small channel connecting the Hexer’s cosmos to the Third Highness’ cosmos. Hexers were curious beings, and they were really enthusiastic to exchange cultivation systems. Other than that, Hexers also had an interest in living beings. Any other cosmos living beings really piqued their curiosity.
There was another cultivation system called the ‘strongest warrior cultivation system’. They practiced on remolding their body. From their point of view, what looked like an ordinary drop of blood could be researched as if it was a planet. They treated it like a new continent and would conduct their research all the way from the start. The advanced they were in their cultivation, the deeper they would be able to ‘research’ they bodies in detail. This allowed them to progressively make adjustments to their bodies. The final goal for this cultivation was to ultimately transform their bodies into something as powerful as a cosmos!
They didn’t need any weapons since their bodies were already their strongest weapons. Moreover, it was extremely easy for them to destroy and refine other weapons.
They had no need for armors too as their skin was incomparably tough and resilient.
Xue Ying even had some suspicions on whether the strongest Deity he met at the starting ground had originated from this strongest warrior cultivation system cosmos. After all, that creature could easily eat his flying knife True God weapon, using only a split second to damage his flying knife. That digestive ability was something really terrifying.
‘Truly worthy of cultivation systems that have reached the extremities of their cultivation.’ Xue Ying recognized that these two cultivation systems were very formidable.
However, enormous amounts of time and effort were needed to cultivate in these 2 cultivation systems.
Researching the myriad of things was in fact much more complicated than comprehending the Profound Mysteries.
As for the Strongest Warrior cultivation system, researching one’s body was even more complicated than understanding the laws and mysteries present in a cosmos.
And as for the other six flawed systems…
After 5,000 years into his cultivation, Xue Ying had sunk into a state of elation.
