“Tell me, what exactly is the matter? Why are you being so secretive?” Meng Dajiang came to the training grounds and sat down. The training grounds were spacious and empty. With nobody near them, there was no fear of eavesdroppers.
“Dad.” Standing there, Meng Chuan pointed at his glabella and asked in a low voice, “Have you heard of an empty space in between the eyebrows?” Meng Chuan really wanted to figure out what the space between his eyebrows was. If he didn’t know a thing, he might one day engage in some sort of forbidden cultivation and suffer.
In terms of trust, there was no doubt that Meng Chuan trusted his father the most!
“There’s space between our eyebrows?” Meng Dajiang was puzzled. “Chuan’er, I don’t quite understand what you mean.”
“Just like our dantian,” said Meng Chuan. “Our dantian is filled with an empty void that can nourish our Quintessential Energy. It’s the same for the space behind the glabella. There’s also a space there, and there’s even a tiny person hiding inside.”
“I don’t know, I’ve never heard of it.” Meng Dajiang shook his head. “Chuan’er, why did you suddenly ask this? Where did you hear it from?”
“It’s not hearsay.” Meng Chuan said solemnly, “It’s because I can inwardly see a space between my eyebrows. The void is vast, and there’s a tiny translucent person inside. That person looks identical to me.”
Meng Dajiang’s pupils constricted. “How do you feel?” Meng Dajiang pressed.
“Very good, very good,” said Meng Chuan. “I feel like I have been reborn. When I close my eyes, I can sense everything within a hundred feet. I can even clearly sense the presence of ants and the bristles on their legs. Within half a kilometer radius, I can sense the auras of all life. I can even sense the auras of those cats and dogs.”
“You can ‘see’ everything within a hundred feet around you even with your eyes closed? You can sense an area of half a kilometer?” Meng Dajiang found it inexplicable. “Chuan’er, did you obtain some special cultivation formula that you are secretly cultivating?”
“No.” Shaking his head, Meng Chuan said, “I’ve never touched any other formulas. After I was done painting yesterday, I felt a little dizzy. Then, I saw the space between my eyebrows through my inner sight.”
“It sounds good, but it might be dangerous. Don’t be careless,” said Meng Dajiang. “Let’s go and meet your grandaunt.”
“Okay.” Meng Chuan nodded.
Fairy Meng was heavily injured, and she did not have many days left to live. She cared the most about Meng Chuan since he was the Meng family’s hope.
To use all the family clan’s treasures to exchange for a drop of the Godfiend Jade Marrow Liquid, and to transfer all the credit she had accumulated to Meng Chuan’s name willingly showed how important he was to her. It could be said that for Meng Chuan’s sake, she could even sacrifice her life.
Meng Dajiang and Meng Chuan trusted her deeply.
Inside the ancestral mansion.
“Grandaunt,” greeted Meng Chuan respectfully.
“Meng Chuan, why are you here?” Sitting in the yard, Fairy Meng put down her book and said with a smile, “You practice eight thousand repetitions of the Saber Drawing Stance every day. It’s rare for you to come to me so early in the morning.”
Meng Dajiang immediately said, “Something special happened to Chuan’er.”
“Special?” Fairy Meng’s heart tightened as she asked, “What is it?”
“Grandaunt, I looked at myself inwardly last night and discovered a space between my eyebrows. It’s similar to the space in the dantian. There’s a space between my eyebrows, and there’s a tiny person inside. It looks exactly like me.”
Fairy Meng’s expression changed slightly. “A space between your brows? I’ve never heard of it before either.”
“Aunt, you haven’t heard of it before either?” Meng Dajiang was shocked.
Fairy Meng had been a Godfiend for about eighty years. She had quite a number of Godfiend friends, so her knowledge was naturally much comprehensive. Yet, Fairy Meng had never heard of the matter regarding the glabella space. It was unbelievable.
This meant that it was very rare! Extremely rare!
“Don’t be anxious. Meng Chuan, what changes did you experience after you discovered the space between your eyebrows?” inquired Fairy Meng.
“Chuan’er said that when he closes his eyes, he can clearly see the surrounding hundred feet. Even an ant’s legs and the bristles on them can be seen clearly. Furthermore, he can sense all living creatures’ auras within half a kilometer.” Meng Dajiang explained as Meng Chuan nodded.
“Close your eyes and see a hundred feet? You can sense half a kilometer?” Fairy Meng was puzzled. “Have you released your Quintessential Energy?”
“I haven’t figured out ‘Force’ yet, so I can’t release my Quintessential Energy,” said Meng Chuan.
“I know you are unable to release your Quintessential Energy.” Fairy Meng shook her head. “I’m also good at reconnaissance. I can probe five kilometers with a thought, but that’s because of my Godfiend body. Furthermore, I can only probe five kilometers through a special formula that depends on releasing Quintessential Energy. As for you, you didn’t use any methods to sense aura within half a kilometer of you. I’ve never seen or heard of it before.”
Meng Chuan was confused.
“You can detect my aura?” inquired Fairy Meng.
“Grandaunt…” Meng Chuan could see Fairy Meng’s clothes on the surface with his naked eyes, but when he closed his eyes, he felt like Fairy Meng had become a humanoid sun. The terrifying aura made it difficult for him to see her clearly.
“Grandaunt, your aura is too strong. I can’t see it clearly,” said Meng Chuan. “However, your aura is stronger than all other living beings’ aura within half a kilometer combined. I can sense it, and it’s as dazzling as the sun. It’s hard to look directly at it, but it’s extremely eye-catching.”
Fairy Meng thought for a moment and softly said, “I have never heard of the glabella space, but I’ve heard of something.”
Meng Dajiang and Meng Chuan listened carefully.
“Humans have souls. You should have heard of them,” said Fairy Meng.
“Yes,” Meng Chuan and his father tersely answered. The soul’s existence was common knowledge.
“But do you know where the soul is?” asked Fairy Meng.
The two shook their heads.
“I heard from a good friend that a soul is located in the sea of consciousness,” said Fairy Meng. “A soul takes human form and is identical to one’s physical body. Back then, I asked about the whereabouts of the sea of consciousness. Back then, he only pointed at his head and said that he didn’t know much about it either. He only knew that this is related to more powerful Godfiend cultivation.”
“The soul is related to even more powerful Godfiend cultivation?” Meng Dajiang and Meng Chuan were deep in thought.
“The space between the eyebrows sounds very similar to the sea of consciousness,” said Fairy Meng. “It just so happens that this tiny person is also in human form, and identical to your physical body. It might be your soul.”
Meng Chuan nodded slightly.
“Of course, this is just my guess,” said Fairy Meng. “It might be true, or it might be wrong. You can’t fully trust me on that.”
Meng Chuan nodded, but he already felt like he had gained a lot. It turned out that people had seas of consciousness and souls within the sea of consciousness. This was related to more powerful Godfiend cultivation.
“Both of you have to keep this matter a secret. If it’s truly a joyous matter, that will be great. If it’s exposed… there might be trouble,” said Fairy Meng.
“That’s right,” said Meng Dajiang. “If there are truly supreme geniuses, the Skydemon Sect would think of ways to assassinate them.”
The Skydemon Sect was selfish and was only concerned about their own interests.
However, if a peerless, earthshaking genius appeared, the demons would reward them if a successful assassination was carried out. This was enough to prompt the Skydemon Sect into risking their lives to assassinate him.
There were ultimately too few geniuses who could be considered earthshaking, ones that could influence the overall situation between the humans and demons. For people like Mei Yuanzhi, the Skydemon Sect didn’t even care… He hadn’t even succeeded in passing the initial entrance assessment at Archean Mountain, spelling out clearly what Mei Yuanzhi’s threat was. If his luck was a little bad, he might die on the battlefield and not even become a Godfiend. A so-called genius like Meng Chuan, who hadn’t figured out “Force,” could only be considered dazzling in Eastcalm Prefecture. The demons didn’t pay him any attention.
“All you need to do is keep it a secret and continue your cultivation as per normal. Then, you can enter Archean Mountain,” said Fairy Meng. “Archean Mountain is the most ancient land of cultivation. Once you enter Archean Mountain and read the books it has, I believe you will know the secrets about the glabella space.”
“Okay.” Meng Chuan nodded.
“That’s right. Keep it a secret. Cultivate well,” said Meng Dajiang.
“You should figure out ‘Force’ as soon as possible,” said Fairy Meng. “The sooner you figure it out, the better. It’s best if you can succeed in Core Condensation. The deeper one’s accumulation, the greater the chances of entering Archean Mountain. That Mei Yuanzhi gained insight into ‘Force’ at 20. Although he took a gamble… the chances of success were slim. In the end, he failed. You will need to figure out ‘Force’ by the age of nineteen. Your chances of entering Archean Mountain will increase with an additional year of preparation and robust Godfiend foundation.
Meng Chuan really wanted to say that he was confident that he could achieve “Force” within the next few days. But having not achieved it yet, he felt that it would appear as though he was bragging.
I’ll tell Dad and Grandaunt after I figure out “Force.”
