“Haha, of course the more children there are, the better it is. To be honest, I love children the most. Merely, if we have too many kids, then Li’er would have to suffer through hardships.” Qin Yu said with a smile. This caused Li’er to blush.
Qin Yu immediately said. “Second brother, let’s stop chatting in this passageway, it’s better for us to go to the courtyard, sit down and slowly chat with one another. What do you think?”
“Good.” Lin Meng nodded with a smile.
After that, Qin Yu, Jiang Li, Lin Meng, the silver haired silver eyed youngster Clayweg and the jumping around and occasionally playing with the golden spear Qin Si all proceeded to walk toward the courtyard.
Inside the courtyard, beside the ancient tree, Qin Yu and Lin Meng were sitting across one another. As for the silver haired silver eyed Clayweg, he was standing behind Lin Meng like a bodyguard.
“Clayweg, you can return first. I will return by myself later.” Lin Meng said to the silver haired silver eyed youngster behind him.
The silver haired silver eyed youngster immediately bowed. “Yes, master.”
The silver haired silver eyed youngster moved slightly and disappeared before Qin Yu.
“Li’er, you can return to the room with Little Si and rest.” Qin Yu said to Jiang Li beside him. Jiang Li nodded her head cleverly and entered into the room with Qin Si. In an instant, only Qin Yu and Lin Meng remained in the courtyard.
The wind caressed through.
A jug of wine and two wine cups.
“Qin Yu, I admire you greatly, did you know?” Lin Meng raised his wine cup. This was the first thing that he spoke.
“Admire me?” Qin Yu was startled.
“Back then, you obtained Lei Wei’s half completed ‘Stellar Transformation’ martial technique. At that moment, the ‘Stellar Transformation’ martial technique could only be considered a very ordinary cultivation martial technique with a bit novelty to it. Merely, the final few continuous transformations that you have made allowed the Stellar Transformation martial technique to reach an unprecedented level of achievement. You… without anyone else’s assistance, were able to achieve your current level of achievement. I truly admire you… that i because when I reached your current level of achievement, I received the assistance of others.” Lin Meng said with a self-mocking smile.
Qin Yu looked to Lin Meng with a pleasantly surprised expression.
This Lin Meng knew that he possessed the New Cosmos?
“Qin Yu, that ‘Black Hole Stage’ of yours was truly astonishing. You actually managed to connect your dantain’s space with the Grandmist Space with that single step. When I discovered it back then… I was truly stunned.” Lin Meng started to praise.
“Back then, I had also once comprehended that the theory that the human body was a Cosmos. Merely, I had never once thought that one would be capable of connecting the body’s dantain’s space with the Grandmist Space. After all, before that, I had never heard of the existence of the Grandmist Space. You too did not know about it. Yet you were able to succeed in doing it. It is truly amazing. It could also be considered as you being lucky. Haha… in actuality, the success of a genius usually requires a bit of luck.” Lin Meng said with a loud laughter.
“Not delightful, truly not delightful. That is because according to the rules, the current you have still not completely succeeded yet. Thus, there are a lot of things that I cannot speak of. However, it will be quick… several tens of years of time would be sufficient.” Lin Meng’s face was filled with smiles.
Qin Yu’s heart moved.
“What does this Lin Meng mean by his words? Several tens of years of time would be sufficient? Does he mean that in several tens of years, my New Cosmos will finish developing?”
Qin Yu understood the development speed of the New Cosmos very well.
A single Cosmos was separated into three layers. The Mortal Realm was a layer. The Immortal, Devil and Demon Realm and the other countless same level spaces was the second layer. The Divine Realm was the third layer. Among them, the Mortal Realm layer was the largest and most extensive. It was also the one that required the most time to form. As for the upper layers, because the amount of space that they needed to develop was less, the amount of time they required to form was also much smaller.
Compared to the differences in the number of Cosmic Spaces that numbered in the hundred times.
Several tens of years was indeed enough time for the entire Cosmos to finish its development.
After having chatted about the matters regarding the ‘Stellar Transformation’ martial technique, Qin Yu and Lin Meng began to casually talk with one another. The two of them were chatting about all kinds of peculiar matters. They were enjoying the conversations greatly.
The Dark Curtain of Night dissipated and the Light of Daytime arrived.
Qin Yu and Lin Meng were still seated across from each other at the round table.
“Second brother, I wish to ask why the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron within the Exalted Celestial Mountain is capable of forming an Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure?” Qin Yu had been confused about this matter the entire time.
Lin Meng smiled and said. “As for that, you do not need to ask about it for the time being. In several tens of years, even without asking you will come to understand the reason why.”
Qin Yu smiled bitterly. “Second brother, I have discovered that you never give me a straight answer when I ask you about matters regarding the Divine Realm. You always answer me in riddles.”
“Haha, there’s nothing I can do. It’s rules, rules. I must abide by the rules.” Lin Meng said while smiling.
“In that case, what about the name of the Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure that is about to appear this time around? You can tell me that, right?” Qin Yu asked.
Lin Meng smiled helplessly and said. “Fine. This cannot be considered important information. The Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure that shall arrive from the descent of the Exalted Celestial Mountain this time around is called the ‘Living World Seal.’”
“Living World Seal?” Qin Yu was completely ignorant about it.
“According to the rules, this Living World Seal will split into three portions. Of these three portions, one will fly out of the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron roughly every ten years. Each of these three portions contains a portion of the Temporal Laws.” Lin Meng said with a smile.
“Living World Seal, split into three portions.” Qin Yu nodded in his heart.
“The Living World Seal was originally something that could be split into three. When the Living World Seal splits into three, it would form three seals that possess might comparable to first-rate Grandmist Spiritual Treasures. They are respectively… Blue Sky Seal, Rear Earth Seal and the one with the strongest power, All People Seal. However, becoming the Exalted Celestial is not something that one can accomplish just by being the strongest. It depends on the individual’s…. Achievements and virtue!” Lin Meng said with a smile.
“Achievements and virtue?” Qin Yu was stunned. “Becoming the Exalted Celestial was depended upon one’s achievements and virtue?”
This was the first time he had heard such a thing. He had never heard the words ‘achievements and virtue’ from the mouths of the Exalted Celestials or the Godkings.
“Oh, ‘achievements and virtue’ could also be called ‘contribution.’” said Lin Meng with a smile. “It is the contribution one has had toward the Cosmos. As for how big one’s contribution is, there’s naturally a way to judge that. What are the achievements and virtues? It is not something that you think it to be. Much less you all, even the Exalted Celestials do not know what the achievements and virtues are. Is it saving others? Even if you’ve saved billions of people, you would not possess a fraction of virtue. Even if you’ve killed millions of people, you would also not lose a fraction of virtue.”
The definition of achievements and virtues were simply not something that ordinary people could understand.
“Second brother, according to what you said, who would be the new Exalted Celestial is determined by their achievements and virtue. In that case, is the battle for it meaningless?” Qin Yu was confused.
The battle of the Exalted Celestial Mountain for the three portions of the Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure, if it was meaningless to begin with, if the new Exalted Celestial was determined in the shadows, then was use was there for the Godkings to fight for it?
“No, it’s meaningful.”
Lin Meng smiled and said. “That is because the three portions of the Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure each contains a portion of the temporal laws within it. If a Godking were to obtain it, even if he cannot become the Exalted Celestial, his comprehension of the temporal laws would still increase. It might even be possible for him to become an Exalted Celestial by relying only on his own strength.”
“However, in the entire history, there has not been a single Exalted Celestial that managed to become an Exalted Celestial through merely their own comprehension.” Qin Yu added.
“Although there has not been one in the history, it does not mean that it is impossible for there to be one.” Lin Meng smiled.
Qin Yu was startled. He immediately also started smiling.
That’s right. For example, the Asura Godking, he had already comprehended Time Stop now. If he were to comprehend Time Reversal through the Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure, then he would naturally become an Exalted Celestial level expert.
However, it was extremely difficult to comprehend this last step.
“Well then.” Lin Meng stood up. He raised his head and looked to the sky. “It is already daytime. It’s also about time for me to return now.” Lin Meng stared at Qin Yu. He smiled and said. “I look forward to our meeting again in several tens of years. The next time we meet, we will be able to chat without any worry for the rules anymore.”
“I’ll see you again in several tens of years.” Qin Yu replied with a smile.
The two of them smiled to each other. After that, Lin Meng’s body turned dim like a phantom. In the end, he directly disappeared before Qin Yu.
“Achievements and virtue? The determination of one’s achievements and virtue, I reckon it was determined by the master of the Divine Realm’s Cosmos.” Qin Yu shook his head and smiled. He then no longer bothered to think anymore. To Qin Yu, the status of Exalted Celestial did not possess any attractiveness. Thus, achievements and virtue was not something meaningful to him.
His path ought to be the pursuit for the successful development of the New Cosmos.
“Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure, Living World Seal. The Living World Seal will be separated into three portions. One is the Blue Sky Seal, the other is the Back Earth Seal and the last one, the All People Seal. Which seal will be the first to appear?”
Qin Yu’s gaze was cast toward the west. At the same time, his New Cosmos’ Spatial Energy rapidly covered the entire Divine Realm like a violent wave.
Qin Yu’s New Cosmos’ Spatial Energy passed through the Relief Sculpture Tunnel and entered the Exalted Celestial Mountain. In an instant, it entered the ravine that contained the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron. Merely, Qin Yu’s New Cosmos’ Spatial Energy was unable to touch the Spiritual Treasure Origin Cauldron.
Several days later, the Three Great Godkings, Jiang Lan, Zuo Qiulin and Yi Feng, entered the Exalted Celestial Mountain. Soon, they mixed themselves in with the others and began pulling connections, either friendly or antagonistic.
All of the Godkings were in a state of restraint.
As the Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure had not appeared yet, all of the Godkings were capable of enduring patiently. However, once the Exalted Celestial’s Spiritual Treasure appeared, the forty plus Godkings present would all begin to fight each other with their lives on the line.
While waiting, time passed. In the blink of an eye, eight years had gone by.
