Archean Eon Art - Chapter 313
Chapter 313 – Huge Commotion
Wind blew in the World Gap as Meng Chuan, King True Martial, and the other Godfiends cultivated.
A dazzling saber beam flashed, and Demon Slayer was sheathed.
I already have a direction to the Dharma Domain realm. Meng Chuan’s eyes lit up. Although I have a direction, I still have to take one step at a time to reach the Dharma Domain realm. Those that can become Regis Godfiends are mostly peerless geniuses. Typically, it takes 30 years for a peerless genius to advance from the peak of the Realm of Dao to the Dharma Domain realm.
I wonder how long it will take me. I feel like it shouldn’t take me that long. Meng Chuan looked forward to it.
It was because of Meng Chuan’s robust foundation that his World Roving Dragon Saber could reach the peak of the Realm of Dao in a short period of time. It wouldn’t be easy for him to reach the Dharma Domain realm that quickly.
When I return to Archean Mountain, I need to read as many lightning technique manuals as possible.I need to learn more ultimate techniques from my predecessors. Talent only prevents a person from getting lost during their cultivation journey. It allows one to walk towards their target directly, never straying off into the wrong path.
Ultimate techniques were precious knowledge. They were compilations of knowledge and techniques of the lightning lineage. It was too difficult to acquire such knowledge through one’s own efforts. By referencing his predecessors’ ultimate techniques, he could draw on their past wisdom and forge his own path.
I need to draw upon the wisdom of my seniors. I need to abandon what I don’t need and absorb what I need. Only then can I grow faster. Meng Chuan understood this. For example, King True Martial used Grandsire Yin Yang’s lineage as his foundation. He then built upon it to create the True Martial lineage. If he didn’t have the foundation of Grandsire Yin Yang’s ultimate techniques, how could he have created his own lineage out of thin air?
He probably wouldn’t have even created the True Martial lineage by the time he was 500 years old. Progress was only possible because people stood on the shoulders of giants. This was how civilization was. Generation after generation, more knowledge and experience accumulated. It was similar to the barren wilderness turning into a prosperous nation! What was a peerless genius? The definition of one was to know how to absorb what they need and abandon what they didn’t need. By absorbing what one needed, they could ultimately create something that was uniquely theirs!
In the beginning, Meng Chuan’s Heart Intent Saber followed the same path as Ancestral Master Guo Ke’s. He didn’t dare to change anything because modifying an ultimate technique could result in a terrible development! He would only end up in a difficult situation if that happened. However, he now had his own understanding of lightning after painting the Fifteen Lightning Forms. He had gained knowledge on how to modify things. He had a clear goal, and with that, he could succeed!
Even so, becoming a Regis Godfiend and reaching the Creation realm still wasn’t easy. Book knowledge was superficial. You had to comprehend that knowledge in person to gain a profound understanding!
Is my understanding of lightning, obtained after painting the Fifteen Lightning Forms, definitely correct? As Meng Chuan held Demon Slayer, this thought surfaced in his mind. If my understanding is wrong, wouldn’t it mean that I’ve taken the wrong path?
Meng Chuan looked up at the distant purple lightning It was too vast.
Was what he knew definitely correct?
No. Perhaps Supremacy Ye Hong and Ancestral Master Guo Ke were right. The directions they chose were only small portions of lightning’s essence. Even the Fifteen Lightning Forms I painted is only a small portion of lightning’s essence. I’ve been cultivating the lightning lineage for decades. My body contains a boundless amount of lightning. I live with lightning every day. With my painting skills, I won’t make mistakes… At most, I only drew a small portion of lightning’s essence. No matter what happens, I’ll cultivate according to my understanding. Whether I rise to prominence or mediocrity, I’ll accept it. At the very least, my cultivation has been very smooth recently. Meng Chuan was planning on being stubborn. Sometimes, even if one took an unorthodox path, they would still be able to achieve success if they followed it to the end.
The days of cultivation were lonely. Meng Chuan looked at the scene of the distant, forming world. He saw the black and white auras growing there. He saw water, fire, wind, and other elements producing life. Although they contained infinite, mysterious wonders, Meng Chuan couldn’t glean much from them.
He could also attempt to draw the forming world’s water, fire, and so on, but he was destined to draw far less than the Fifteen Lightning Forms. Other than needing a direct reference, one needed decades of insight towards a certain thing. Only by combining the two would one have a greater chance of gaining a more profound understanding of something
Since Meng Chuan had not cultivated these myriad elements, his paintings of them would be shallow and superficial. Without profound insight, it would be impossible to seek answers from his inner self just by painting with the naked eye.
Am I seeing things? King True Martial looked at the distant Meng Chuan. Ever since Meng Chuan finished his paintings, he’s been enjoying himself and even smiling during cultivation. Before he painted, he never smiled so foolishly. Perhaps, it’s because he was too tired and only managed to relax completely after painting?
He was cultivating alone, yet he was enjoying himself? People would think of him as a cultivation lunatic. King Calm Sea was such a lunatic. He abandoned his family ties and completely immersed himself in his cultivation. Only such a madman could believe that there was great joy to be found in cultivation. They wouldn’t find cultivation to be difficult; they would find it to be the greatest joy in the world. Thus, such a madman would naturally be happy to immerse themselves in their cultivation. Only a cultivation lunatic’s cultivation would advance by leaps and bounds.
Considering Meng Chuan’s behavior in the past nine months, he was clearly not a cultivation lunatic.
How could King True Martial know that Meng Chuan’s behavior had changed because of his paintings?
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The earth trembled slightly. What’s wrong? Yan Chitong, Xue Feng, and King Calm Sea stopped their cultivation and were somewhat puzzled.
Meng Chuan sheathed his saber and looked at the ground in puzzlement. The ground trembled as the soil and sand rolled. Meng Chuan looked around, but he couldn’t sense the cause of the commotion. What’s going on? Meng Chuan walked towards the others in puzzlement. Everyone gathered together. Similarly, King Calm Sea couldn’t find the source of the tremors.
However, King True Martial closed his eyes as invisible waves radiated from him. He carefully sensed the surroundings. Suddenly, he opened his eyes. King True Martial stared into the distance and pointed. “In that direction. The tremor source is about 1,650 kilometers away.”
“It’s definitely not a trivial matter if such a commotion occurs during the birth of a world,” said King Calm Sea. “Let’s hurry over,” said King True Martial. “Yes.” Meng Chuan, Yan Chitong, and Xue Feng nodded.
“Meng Chuan, carry us along,” said King True Martial.
“Okay.” Meng Chuan immediately carried everyone. King Calm Sea didn’t object. King True Martial unleashed his domain to assist Meng Chuan, reducing the impact on Meng Chuan’s speed as best he can.
A bolt of lightning streaked across the sky. It was like a lightning dragon flashing across the world. Meng Chuan traversed 10 kilometers in a second, even when he was carrying four other people along.
He’s this fast? No matter how cold King Calm Sea was, he was still shocked.
“You’re much faster than when we were snatching the Spacetime Floating Ice,” said King True Martial as he looked at Meng Chuan in surprise.
“I had another breakthrough,” said Meng Chuan with a smile.
“A breakthrough?” King Calm Sea frowned. In other aspects, this Meng Chuan is only average. However, his speed is truly becoming more and more abnormal. Isn’t the common consensus that the faster one is, the harder it is to raise one’s speed? His speed has improved by a large margin again in just a few months?
Furthermore, according to what he knew, a Lightning Devastator Fiend Body Marquis Godfiend typically traversed about five kilometers in a second. It was already not bad if Meng Chuan exceeded that by a bit. Why was Meng Chuan so fast?
“Senior Brother Meng’s speed is truly peerless,” praised Yan Chitong. Ever since Meng Chuan saved Marquis West Sea, Yan Chitong began to admire Meng Chuan. “It’s nothing.” Meng Chuan was very humble. After receiving the intent legacy, Meng Chuan had learned how fast the creator of the World Roving Dragon Saber-Supremacy Ye Hongwas. Compared to Ye Hong, he felt like a baby that had just begun to crawl. He still had a long way to go. The five Godfiends flew at an extremely fast speed and soon arrived at their destination.
Impressive. King True Martial managed to deduce the tremor source to be 1,650 kilometers away. He wasn’t wrong at all. Meng Chuan looked into the distance. A mountain slowly rose from the ground. The mountain emitted a five-colored light, and a faint purple aura surrounded it.
“Is it the birth of an Origins treasure?” King Calm Sea and King True Martial looked at each other.
