Chapter 225: Great Realm Divine Technique
Yunxiao sat cross-legged in midair, surrounded by a massive amount of Primordial Qi.
After being absorbed into his dantian, only a small amount of the Primordial Qi was converted into the energy of the Four Quadrants and settled down. Most of it scattered and disappeared during the circulating process, and a portion was absorbed by his flesh and bones, quietly modifying the function of his body. Since he stepped into the level of Tyrant Body, he felt that his limbs were filled with a brutal force strong enough to shatter rocks, which was not weaker than his energy.
“Tough, domineering, unstoppable!”
“The Glazed Body is to transform the flesh, eliminate impurities, and strengthen the constitution, so that the body has a perfect state.”
“And the Tyrant Body is to derive a tyrant force on top of the foundation built by the Glazed Body.”
“I can’t believe this tyrant force is a powerful force hidden in the flesh after the potential of the body is stimulated.”
“Is it really the right way for warriors to only cultivate Qi? The flesh of a warrior is a great treasure house that contains an ultimate power like the universe, the Heavenly Dao, the Laws, and the stars.”
“Soul, flesh, Qi, all three of them are the most precious assets of the Great Dao. A man only needs to cultivate one to the extreme, and he will be able to hold sway in the world. I’m cultivating all three together, and although the road is rugged and bumpy, perhaps…this is a road leading to the Ten Worlds realm!”
As Yunxiao’s head was full of thoughts, he opened his eyes slightly, which flickered like stars. He locked his hands in an incantation gesture. Gradually, dragon-shaped shadows manifested in the surrounding sea of Primordial Qi and poured into his body. But, he was like a bottomless pit that would never get full.
“In the end, all paths lead to the same Great Dao. This Tyrant Body Tempering Technique is no different from artifact refinement. They both refine the materials to the purest state, thus deriving new power from the materials and transforming them into mystic artifacts!”
“I understand now. Ao Changkong’s so-called Indestructible Body is also a transcendent-grade mystic artifact; it is a mystic artifact that has been refined to its purest state with the heaven and earth as the cauldron and the body as the material!”
As he gained enlightenment in his mind, his body seemed to sense that. It began to emit waves of fluctuations, the frequency of which beat harmoniously in the Divine Realm Tablet and resonated with a certain law, causing some changes to take place between the heaven and earth.
Yunxiao first felt the changes in his body. After absorbing a massive amount of Primordial Qi, his cultivation base of a one-star Martial Lord burst open and stepped into the level of two-stars. But, that did not excite him. Instead, he looked solemnly at the sky.
He was spiritually connected with the Divine Realm Tablet. Although he could not see the full extent of it yet, every change in it was in his perception. At this moment, there seemed to be some kind of law quietly taking place in the void, vibrating harmoniously with the fluctuations emitted from his body.
Under the vibration, at the end of the sky where the shadows were seen, a great number of golden specks emerged, flashing like fireflies in the night and gradually multiplying.
Yunxiao’s pupils constricted and his eyes grew wide in horror as he stared unblinkingly at the sky. The golden specks began to stretch and merge, forming into golden tadpole-like characters. The formation of every character filled his head with a rumble while a huge pressure of law made him tremble violently.
“This kind of character…” Yunxiao clenched his jaws tightly as he resisted the tremendous pressure of law, and he forced his eyes open, trying to read each tadpole-like character.
“These are the same characters used in the Great Expansion Divine Technique, but they are not the Great Expansion Divine Technique. What exactly is this?”
He rotated all his strength to the peak:soul power, Qi, and tyrant force poured out of his body, keeping his eyes open. Soon, two streams of blood trickled down from his pupils, but he was not aware of it.
“Legend has it that there are some supreme laws of heaven and earth in this world that cannot be described in words. They are contained in the world and are indescribable. Could this kind of golden tadpole-like character be an existence used to describe those supreme laws?”
Yunxiao tried to keep from shaking too violently until he could see the golden tadpole-like characters clearly. The first few big characters that came to his mind were ‘The Great Realm Divine Technique’!
“Great Realm Divine Technique! This is the scripture that contains the supreme law in the Divine Realm Tablet! As long as I understand it, I can completely refine the Divine Realm Tablet and achieve true spiritual unity with it!” Yunxiao was overjoyed. Having been in possession of the Divine Realm Tablet for so long, he had no way of exploring it beyond using it as a spatial mystic artifact. He did not expect that his realization of the principle of body cultivation would trigger the laws of heaven and earth and make this supreme scripture appear.
“The beginning of the Grand Ultimate is Limitless Void. Nebulous as one energy. No Separation. Thus, Limitless Void is the mother of the Grand Ultimate, and thus the origin of myriad things. Two energies are separate. Heaven and earth judge. Grand Ultimate results. Two energies are Yin and Yang—Yin quiescent and Yang dynamic. Yin terminates, Yang generates…”
Yunxiao read it word by word. With each word he read, he found it more difficult to continue, like there was a great bell ringing in his head. Now, not only was blood trickling down from his eyes, but also from his ears, nose, and the corners of his mouth, which made him look terrifying.
“It looks like this thing is unreadable in words, just like the Great Expansion Divine Technique.”
Suddenly, he opened up his mind, exposing his spiritual altar and facing it directly at the golden tadpole-like characters in the sky, branding the entire divine scripture into his spiritual ocean.
“I have to take the risk! If I lose this opportunity, I don’t know when will the next time be when I can be enlightened by the laws of the heaven and earth and make this divine scripture manifest again. Since my spiritual ocean can contain the Great Expansion Divine Technique, it should be able to contain this Great Realm Divine Technique as well!”
The result was that his spiritual altar was unable to withstand the pressure of the law. His mind was violently shaken, and his head went blank, as if it were blown apart. In the next instant, he lost consciousness and fell from the void.
In his trance, the characters of the Great Realm Divine Technique appeared in his spiritual ocean, partly hidden and partly visible. Meanwhile, another obscure golden text also slowly emerged in his spiritual ocean—it was the Great Expansion Divine Technique. Its contents rang in his head, one word at a time, beating constantly like a heart!
With the appearance of the Great Expansion Divine Technique, the partly visible Great Realm Divine Technique followed suit upon sensing the same aura and began to show up, one word at a time, blinking constantly on the other side of the spiritual ocean.
The two divine scriptures clearly appeared in his spiritual ocean, shining on each other! But, Yunxiao had completely lost consciousness and fallen to the ground somewhere in the Divine Realm Tablet. His head was covered with blood, and he was in a complete coma.
There was no sun or moon in the Divine Realm Tablet, so there was no turning from day to night. It was always daylight.
Yunxiao did not know how long it had been. He only kept hearing the sound of the Great Expansion Divine Technique in his head. After he was reborn, it was this divine scripture that restored the memory of his previous life.
“This feeling…Am I dead again? Am I reborn again?”
He felt his head extremely heavy, as if it had occupied all the weight in his body, drooping on the ground and impossible to lift.
“Damnit, this head is as heavy as a copper hammer, as if it is filled with lead. What’s going on?”
Lying sprawled on the ground, Yunxiao opened his eyes slightly. Through his blurry vision, he saw a puddle of blood on the ground, giving off a fishy smell.
“This is my blood…”
He pushed himself up, and when he saw what was around him, he breathed a sigh of relief. He was still inside the Divine Realm Tablet, and he could vaguely sense that. However, as soon as he tried to muster the power in his spiritual ocean, he felt a stab of pain in his head. His spiritual altar was obscured by a bright golden light.
He performed an incantation gesture with one hand and began to recite the Great Expansion Divine Technique silently.
Whenever he woke up from a coma, this scripture always emerged in his head, which showed its extraordinary effect. As the scripture echoed in his mind, the sting began to fade away.
Nobody knew how long it had been, but his spiritual altar soon got clear, and he felt no more pain. Moreover, he sensed that his soul power had soared!
Yunxiao looked surprised. His soul power actually increased to a very strong level, directly stepping into the realm of Alchemy Kings. This marked him as a fifth-tier alchemist.
It was a blessing in disguise. Had it not been for the Great Expansion Divine Technique in his spiritual ocean, his soul would have melted away and he would have perished.
He could sense that in the depths of his spiritual ocean, there was a golden tadpole-like text that he was terribly afraid of in addition to the Great Expansion Divine Technique, partly visible and partly hidden. It was the Great Realm Divine Technique.
“The Great Expansion Divine Technique and the Great Realm Divine Technique… both of them had the words ‘divine technique’. Could they be the cultivation techniques left behind by experts of the Ten Worlds realm?”
The mightiness of these two cultivation techniques was beyond Yunxiao’s knowledge. He said doubtfully, “But…there are no descriptions of experts of the Ten Worlds realm in the records of continental history…”
After pondering hard for a long time and not coming out with a conclusion, he simply stopped guessing. At least he knew that this Great Realm Divine Technique was the key to control the Divine Realm Tablet. Carefully, he sent his divine sense into the obscured region in his spiritual ocean and began to study the Great Realm Divine Technique.
“The beginning of the Grand Ultimate is Limitless Void. Nebulous as one energy. No Separation. Thus, Limitless Void is the mother of Grand Ultimate…”
By the time he had just read a quarter of it, he began to feel very tired. To his astonishment, his soul power, which was at its maximum level just now, had been exhausted. His eyelids drooped and he felt drowsy.
Yunxiao clenched his teeth abruptly, and his mouth immediately filled with blood. But, he got slightly sober as well.
He sat cross-legged down in shock and began to rotate the Great Expansion Divine Technique while reading the golden tadpole-like text. This nourished his exhausted soul power and made him feel better. And because he was spiritually connected with the Divine Realm Tablet, he seemed to sense something from those characters.
“…thus the origin of a myriad of things. Two energies are separate. Heaven and earth judge. Grand Ultimate results. Two energies are Yin and Yang. Yin quiescent and Yang dynamic. Yin terminates Yang generates…”
This time, he managed to read until one-third of the scripture. But after that, no matter how he rotated his soul power, he could not recognize the later part of the text. All he saw was a chaos floating in the depths of his spiritual ocean.
After many attempts, he finally sighed and gave up completely. The remaining two-thirds of the scripture could only be read when his soul power improved again.
