Oh My God! Earthlings are Insane! - Chapter 1727
This was not Meng Chao’s first time hearing the name “Deification Capsule” after returning to Dragon City.
He had always believed that among the many influences that the monster civilization had on Dragon City, the Deification Capsule’s development had given human thugs the ability to challenge the rules, break the rules, and even overturn the rules. Its significance far exceeded that of a certain Apocalyptic Beast’s simple and violent massacre.
Extraordinary power was the greatest difference between the Other World and Earth.
The process of awakening extraordinary power involved learning how to control this terrifying power, as well as how to unify one’s mind and power.
Humans would only be the masters of their power and not the slaves when their minds and power were united.
Only then could superhumans continue to regard themselves as “humans” and work tirelessly for the continuation of human civilization instead of recklessly squandering their strength and putting themselves above the entire civilization, becoming puppets of primitive emotions and desires, and becoming… monsters in human skin.
The Deification Capsule could skip this learning and awakening process precisely.
It allowed ordinary people to instantly obtain ten times or a hundred times the power, which was enough to make them completely unrecognizable.It was also enough to destroy everything around them.
This extremely special genetic medicine faintly threatened the foundation of Dragon City’s foundation.
The problem was, their victory in the Monster War did not mean that the Deification Capsule had disappeared.
The Deification Capsule’s economic benefits and military value were too great. Dragon City’s major forces, countless small and medium-sized enterprises, and even the leading research teams in the major universities were all studying the Deification Capsule. They were trying to tap into the power of the cells and genes of carbon-based life.
Universe Corporation’s Blood Flower laboratory in the depths of Raging Waves Mountain Range was conducting research in this area.
Thundercloud Technology’s technological accumulation in biochemical research, gene modulation, and monster modification was even deeper than that of Universe Corporation, which mainly engaged in crystal mining and smelting.
Yun Feidian would only go further than Shen Yuanbao on this path.
“At that time, we conducted hundreds of studies, but there was not much progress. No matter how we adjusted the ratio of the formulas, the mice and the tailless monkeys that were used for the experiments either became unresponsive or died of organ failure or internal bleeding after they were injected with the deification drug that we had concocted.”
The seven puppets continued. “This went on until one time, the raw materials that we used to make the deification drug were contaminated and mixed with a lot of monster plasma as well as spinal cord extracts.
“The deification drug that was mixed with the monster genes was injected into the bodies of the mice and tailless monkeys. Then, our experimental subjects underwent an astonishing mutation. Their bodies expanded at a speed visible to the naked eye. Sharp bone spurs pierced out of their spines. Their speed, strength, and neural reactions all increased by more than 300%. Some of the experimental subjects even had crackling flames and electric arcs all over their bodies!
“Most importantly, after they released their violent strength unscrupulously, only 70% of the mice and the tailless monkeys died of organ failure and body fluid evaporation.
“Another 30% of the mice and tailless monkeys miraculously survived. They were just too tired and on the verge of paralysis.
“We were overjoyed by the accident.
“Soon, someone realized that the ordinary mice, ordinary tailless monkeys, and ordinary humans couldn’t withstand the super stimulation of the Deification Capsule because the cells of ordinary carbon-based life-forms were in a state similar to ‘low-power operations.’
“Even machines can’t withstand any sudden adjustment from low-power operations to an overload, let alone a body of flesh and blood.
“Therefore, if we can take advantage of the fact that monster cells are more active than ordinary human cells, we can first modify the ordinary human cells so that humans can obtain a body as tough as that of a monster. Then, we can think of a way to activate the terrifying power hidden in this body of steel and iron bones. That would be much easier.
“Following this train of thought, we conducted hundreds of thousands of experiments. In the new formula of the deification drug, we added a large amount of monster plasma, spinal cord, and brain tissue extracts. As expected, we made a breakthrough in progress.
“Now, the new deification drug that we’ve developed can increase the strength, speed, and nerve reaction of the injector by more than 300% in an instant while ensuring the injector’s safety. If we increase the dosage and take a little risk, we can even increase it by 500% to 1,000%!
“With such a new deification drug, we can instantly turn a group of defenseless ordinary people into monstrous, terrifying killing machines. At the same time, we can maintain, at least, most of their intelligence!
“For now, there’s only one small problem that we haven’t solved yet.
“It concerns the appearance of the ordinary people who have been injected with the new deification drug. At times, some of their organs will become similar to the… monsters’. For the time being, we haven’t found a way to change their appearance without harming their health.
“But I believe that in the face of such great power, it’s worth it even if they turn into half-human and half-beast, isn’t it?”
The seven puppets laughed again.
It would seem that their initial smiles indicated how sure they were of their plan.
At that moment, there was only malevolence and madness in their constantly wriggling smiles.
Lu Siya’s eyes grew wider and wider. They were filled with disbelief and even absurdity. She cried out involuntarily, “The price of increasing the strength and speed of ordinary people by three to five times in an instant is looking like half-human and half-beast?
“Then, this is not the power that activates human cells at all. It is the power that turns human cells into monster cells and then turns human beings into monsters in human skin!
“No, no, you’re lying!
“Every biochemical laboratory has the most stringent operating procedures. Things like deification drugs and monster spinal cord extract are even less likely to be placed together.
“Whether it is the gene drugs or the monster extracts, they will be stored in a mithril stabilizer at low temperature under normal circumstances. It is impossible for them to be contaminated by each other.
“Therefore, what you’ve been doing since the beginning is not research on ‘activating human potential,’ but research on ‘how to turn human beings into monsters.’
“You’re not researching a new deification drug at all, but a monster drug. It is a secret drug that can turn human beings into monsters!”
The seven puppets were dazed for a moment, and their smiles became even more twisted.
“As expected of the most outstanding existence in the third generation of the nine great cultivation families. Lu Siya, I’m starting to admire you more and more.”
Flames were surging in the seven puppets’ eyes as they asked Yun Feidian’s question in unison, “Is there really any difference between ‘activating human potential’ and ‘turning human beings into monsters’?
“Or is there really a fundamental difference between humans and monsters?”
