Chapter 907: Cultivation Accumulation
Within the Palace Hall of Time in the holy ground Great Void Heaven Temple.
Xue Ying was seated cross-legged on top of a tall mountain peak. The wind was blowing harshly on his robe. He looked down at this great land, and also at the vast starry sky.
Throughout these years, he had been using several materials to aid in his cultivation in the Palace Hall of time as he tried fusing both ‘Dao of Mirage and Dao of Slaughter’. It’s a pity he did not create a new fusion move. Instead, his understanding of the Primal Chaos realm became deeper. Everything he knew in the past became much clearer now, and Xue Ying could ascertain that he was actually nailing on the board of Primal Chaos realm with every moment his understanding deepened. All he needed was time before he could break through!
‘Primal Chaos realm is just a stop.’ Xue Ying thought.
Primal Chaos realm.
It was all about breaking the original limits of the Unity realm! What Primal Chaos realm engendered was in opening up limitless possibilities in the Dao path. As one proceeded further, he would then nurture this Dao path into a cosmos. That represented the final realm–Cosmos God!
Actually, the essence of the Primal Chaos realm was just like a piece of white paper!
And the realm of Cosmos God was like a drawing on top!
This white paper was initially clean and empty. What this represented were many different possibilities where one could draw! Naturally, it was tough to create the most exquisite of artwork. That was also the final and most significant checkpoint within cultivation. Only when the ‘art was at perfection’ could it turn into a cosmos.
In any case, it was hard to even compose this piece of white paper.
Usually, one would be left with many scars as he cultivated from young to now. Like previously, in the Void God ‘Origin Birth realm’, there were impurities from other profound mysteries, making it even harder to form a piece of white paper. Only when one sought after the absolute limits, completely purifying Unity into a single point. Only when there was this foundation could the cultivator actually break through the Unity and transform it into a clean white piece of paper–Primal Chaos.
One had to have a deep understanding of his body, soul, realm, and cultivation. That was why a high number of cultivation systems had strong requirements on the soul. It was impossible to produce this piece of white paper ‘Primal Chaos’ without sufficient soul strength.
‘With sufficient determination and perseverance, with a deeper understanding of the Dao, only then can I abandon the influence of the past.’ Xue Ying thought.
To abandon the influences did not represent throwing them away.
If one did not require comprehensions, then did that not mean that a mortal who had never cultivated before would be able to step into the Primal Chaos realm more easily?
That was clearly wrong!
Instead, one had to first comprehend and break through its influences, transcending beyond it before discovering that only that piece of white paper existed–Primal Chaos! No matter which law and profound mystery it was, no matter which cultivation system it was, everything would eventually lead to that white piece of paper at the Primal Chaos realm.
It was hard to grasp ‘Primal Chaos’.
Either one broke through with comprehension, understanding what was behind the Unity realm–the Primal Chaos realm.
Or one became strong enough, accumulating enough experiences that deepened his understanding of his path of cultivation. Xue Ying was precisely on this second path. His Dao of Slaughter, Dao of Ripple and Dao of Mirage had all touched the boundaries of Primal Chaos realm. He had also touched on the periphery of the Primal Chaos realm in his Walker’s Hidden Secret. All his Daos had already reached this stage, and Xue Ying was even trying to fuse multiple Daos together, experiencing more on the profound mysteries of his Daos. Naturally, Xue Ying’s understanding of everything on his Dao would become deeper.
‘Mn?’ A message was transmitted over that startled Xue Ying.
‘Star Convention? I am one of the five teachers?’ Xue Ying was astonished.
The war between the three great sacred worlds and two great religions was fought by experts. As a result, Eastern Unicorn Sacred World and Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World decided to work together and host a gathering called the Star Convention. They sought to unearth some of the more talented cultivators that were dispersed all over the places, pulling them into their faction before nurturing them wholeheartedly! These cultivators who did not have a good environment in cultivating and could attain great accomplishments within two trillion years would definitely achieve greater things if they were nurtured. There might even be some who could step into the Primal Chaos realm.
If there were at least a cultivator entering the Primal Chaos realm during every Star Convention, it would be worth it!
‘Of the teachers of the convention, there are General Hatchet Palace Master, General Heaven Light, Five Luster Serpent Ancestor, and Violet Slaughter Island Master who are at the Primal Chaos realm. Only I am at the Unity realm?’ Xue Ying was clear that the status of a teacher of the convention was high. More importantly, more than half of the selected cultivators within the Star Convention would depend on the foresight of the teachers as they unearth those weaker juniors with sufficient potential. Thus, the actions of the teacher would significantly affect the destiny of a Unity genius!
“Dong Bo Xue Ying.” Forefather Tian Yu’s voice reverberated in the surrounding.
“Forefather.” Xue Ying respectfully replied.
“You will be taking on this opportunity as a teacher during the Star Convention. It is a good experience for you. By then, there would be many talents at the Unity realm seeking you for help. If the cultivators you chose performed badly, it would signify that your foresight is weak.” Forefather Tian Yu explained, “Not just selecting the right people or to guide these cultivators, it is good training for you in many other aspects too. This is a hard-earned opportunity so you must grasp it well. Furthermore, you are representing my Great Void Heaven Temple this time, so do not throw the reputation of my Great void Heaven Temple away.”
“Yes.” Xue Ying immediately answered.
The five teachers came from five holy grounds.
This time, he would be representing the Great Void Heaven Temple! Every single action of his represented his holy ground, so he had to perform beautifully.
Now it was just the start of the preparations. There was still a million years before the convention begin.
Actually, before the selection of the teachers of convention happened, many talented cultivators from all over the two great sacred worlds had started preparing for the ‘Star Convention’ this time since each convention would be held at a fixed time–once every trillion years! Some of the weaker ones who did not have the opportunity to enter the holy grounds would hurry in their cultivation to reach the Unity realm in a bid to enter the holy grounds via the Star Convention.
Participating in the convention was easy.
As long as one was qualified, he could visit any main cities within the two great sacred worlds. They could then register themselves with the ‘Seven Star Oceanic Pavilion’ or the ‘Eastern Unicorn Palace Hall’. By then, the holy grounds would arrange everything well.
As time passed, many young Unity realm cultivators who were filled with hope began registering themselves to attend that Star Convention! The Star Convention was also hosted by the six great holy grounds, and even Cosmos Gods would focus on this convention.
But there was an underlying rule…
The disciples of holy grounds were forbidden from participating in it! After all, this convention was meant to unearth talented cultivators from those scattered around different places and was not appropriately nurtured.
Some of them had horrible cultivating conditions, and could at most obtain some ancient absolute arts or those related to it.
There might be some who entered the sect under a Primal Chaos giant. Nevertheless, the sect under a Primal Chaos giant would definitely be far weaker than any of the holy grounds. For instance, the ‘Black Emperor Palace’ might have a great expert propping the sect, but he could at most teach others what he was good at. There were many other areas where he could only guide based on the books he collected. But how could he ever compare with the number of books collected to the Great Void Heaven Temple, Primogenitor Island and other holy grounds?
Furthermore, the holy grounds had Cosmos Gods and a group of Primal Chaos giants. They far outstripped the Primal Chaos superpowers regarding cultivation guidance, ancient absolute art options, treasures, and resources.
The disciples sent over by Primal Chaos superpowers to participate in the battle would certainly be better than those who cultivated by themselves. It’s a pity that Xue Ying and the others would prefer to select loose cultivators if both parties were similar in strength and age.
There was a black flower which vaguely formed within a huge illusory world in the void ahead. But it had barely formed before falling apart.
‘I still can’t do it.’
Xue Ying who was seated cross-legged on the mountain peak lightly shook his head, ‘It is impossible for me to get through the seventh level Star Pagoda if I do not create this technique.’
He had attained the sixth level Star Pagoda in all three Daos of his. The Vermillion Nightmare inheritance had enabled his soul to become stronger too, allowing him to display more Sky Punishment Edges which allowed his combat strength to soar! The Imperial Dragon inheritance had strengthened his physical body, allowing him to resist the destructive energy from the Destruction Devils better…
Even still, Xue Ying could kill eight of the ten Destruction Devils on the seventh level at most. He could not improve any further.
Xue Ying was extremely clear.
To get through the seventh level, the first breakpoint would be to disrupt the team effort by the ten Destruction Devils. A cultivator would have touched on the boundaries of seventh level strength if he could break through the teamwork of the ten Destruction Devils. After that, the cultivator would have to kill them one after another… and it was easier to kill those with weaker survival capabilities.
As a result, one, two, three… the more one killed, the harder it would be.
Xue Ying might have just killed eight of them, leaving behind just two devils alive. But the difficulty had become extremely high. He had to improve his strength to a whole new level before he could even kill the final two. A small increment would not change the outcome.
‘No wonder all cultivators at the Unity realm who could get through the seventh level are highly respected.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly, ‘It is indeed difficult.’
For a Primal Chaos realm expert to get through the seventh level, that was considered an ordinary standard!
But for a Unity realm expert to get through the seventh level meant that they were abnormal! It was certain that they would step into the Primal Chaos realm, and the moment they broke through, they would reach the eighth level standard. Over time, they would become apex experts amongst those of the eighth level. There was even a huge possibility for them to enter the ninth level. As for reaching the final realm ‘Cosmos God’? That was something ultimately hard to predict.
‘Time for me to set off.’
Xue Ying who was seated cross-legged on the mountain peak stood up.
The Star Convention would be starting soon. He was one of the five teachers of the convention, and it was time for him to set off for where the convention would be held at–the ‘Blade Emperor City’.
