The three great ancestral gods, being the spokespeople of the willpower of the primal universe origin, were now surrounded by colorful lights that contained the power of various laws of gold, wood, water, fire, earth, wind, electricity, light, time, and space. And these lights were consistently exuding an endless, oppressive force.
Clearly, this was not something that these three ancestral gods could achieve on their own. This was obviously achieved with the support provided by the willpower of the primal universe origin. To a certain extent, it could also lend credibility to the words of the three great ancestral gods, proving that their claims were not baseless or random.
“That miniature universe we have all tried before. Mere contact with the walls of its membrane will bring one to annihilation.”
“There is simply no way in.”
Right away, great beings began firing persistent questions.
Double-Face Ancestral God, one of the three great ancestral gods, who was seated to the side, spoke up. “If you intend to intrude and barge your way through, then there will certainly not be a way in. This World of Jin is extraordinary… Under normal circumstances, even after thousands and millions of reincarnation eras, it remains unborn. However—when everything in the vast Universe Ocean has a universe law to adhere to, that time will be the time for its proper birth.”
No one bothered asking how they should enter. This information from Double-Face Ancestral God was enough to cause a stir among the various groups of top powers from Universe Ocean!
Proper birth? What did he mean by “proper birth”? Under normal circumstances, even after thousands and millions of reincarnation eras, it would remain unborn?
“What exactly happened?” Luo Feng was taken aback and transmitted a voice message to Primal Chaos City Leader beside him. “Teacher, after hearing what the three great ancestral gods had to say, the birth of this World of Jin seems to have a special meaning to it.”
“Yes.” Primal Chaos City Leader nodded solemnly. “Everything has its own laws. The willpower of the primal universe origin may be very strong, but it is also very detached, so it cannot differentiate between good and bad. It can only adhere to the most fundamental rules. Even when dealing with a single universe master like Yuan Ao Master, or dealing with Great Thunder Star Master, it must draw on the support of other great beings. Obviously, it is not invincible, so even against Teacher Origin, the most the willpower of the origin could do was keep him under suppression. There is no way it could annihilate Teacher Origin.”
Luo Feng nodded. It was true. Everything seemed to have a predestined set of laws to adhere to, and apparently, under normal circumstances, this massive object should not have been born. Yet now, it had undergone a proper birth! Obviously, this meant that this period had entered into a special phase that was different from the other reincarnation eras.
The most handsome ancestral god—a being with fine, delicate features and a red-scaled tail, who looked nothing older than a youth—spoke. “Internally, the World of Jin is fraught with endless predicaments, yet it also contains endless opportunities. It is more special compared to the other three most dangerous lands. That massive object was of no use at all to Universe Ocean. Its true significance lay in the World of Jin that resided within its body. If you want to enter the World of Jin, you must wait for the right opportunity. The power of the universe membrane wall periodically switches from strong to weak. When it turns black, its power is at its strongest; when it turns white, its power is at its weakest. That is when most ordinary universe masters can easily penetrate it. Each cycle… is approximately one era long. Everyone, we just need to wait. Wait for the membrane walls of that World of Jin to turn white. Then we can enter.”
Hearing the words of this ancestral god, the various groups of top powers instantly grew restless and itchy for action.
Periodic cycles? At that point, a handful of great beings wanted to take off and rush into the World of Jin right away. But the moment they heard that a single cycle took as long as an era, they had to suppress their heightened emotions in order to continue listening.
“The World of Jin is mysterious and unpredictable,” the old ancestral god in the middle said. “Within the World of Jin, there are many living souls.”
“There are living souls there?”
A few thousand top-tier existences from all over Universe Ocean were shocked. Luo Feng was astounded, too. The three most dangerous lands of the Universe Boat did not have any living souls.
“The living souls of the World of Jin can only survive in the World of Jin. They cannot come out,” the old ancestral god continued. “The moment they leave, they are bound to die. If you all enter… what you bring out when you exit will only be lifeless things. If you have brought a living soul out, it will be the same as killing it. Also, the World of Jin… contains a secret on transcending reincarnation.”
This gathering was already a powder keg, and now, thousands of beings were getting even more worked up.
The secret on transcending reincarnation… Was this not what they all yearned for?
“Remember!” said the old ancestral god. “The secret to transcending reincarnation is the secret of the World of Jin. Upon entering, you can explore and seek what you yearn for. But the moment you leave the World of Jin, everything you learn from it must be kept to yourself. Absolutely nothing must be leaked to the outside world. Of course… even if you want to, there is no way to leak anything from the World of Jin.”
Everyone seemed to be deep in thought.
Luo Feng understood right away. It was just like how he received the inheritance of the pulse of Duan Dong Rive; he simply could not find anything more profound. It was like how Sitting Mountain Guest had bestowed upon him, the Nine Volume Manual. Sitting Mountain Guest had needed to pay a hefty price before he could impart the manual to a single disciple. Obviously, there was an intangible kind of “law” that was influencing everything.
“The secret of transcending reincarnation? The secret of the World of Jin?” Luo Feng could feel the upsurge of emotions.
He was aware that for many generations of reincarnations, the World of Jin had not been born. This time, its birth was the closest he would likely get to the secret of Universe Ocean.
“World of Jin, the fourth most dangerous land of Universe Ocean,” the old ancestral god said. “All of you must bear in mind… when the opportunity arrives, a crisis also lies in wait. The World of Jin is much more dangerous than even Tilted Peak Sector, Flowing Countless Mountains, and Universe Boat.”
The three ancestral gods looked at one another, then immediately vanished into thin air and left.
The thousands of great beings from Universe Ocean were also incomparably fast in returning to their palace true treasures. The large group of great beings from the Hong Alliance also returned to the Boat of Mausoleum immediately.
The three generations of ancestral gods played the roles of the spokespeople of the willpower of the primal universe origin, and they were mainly tasked with conveying messages and guidance. However, the various groups of top powers from Universe Ocean did not dare to commit their full belief in everything they received. They still explored cautiously. Suddenly, they discovered that the entire route from the point where they entered until they reached the natural wormhole was danger-free. And the moment they went through the wormhole, they would arrive at a secret space where they would see a miniature universe: the World of Jin.
“Luo Feng, no great being has ever set foot in the World of Jin to explore it, and yet, you are going in now—just like that,” said Primal Chaos City Leader. “It is too dangerous. If an accident happens, the loss you incur will be far too great.”
Luo Feng was carrying numerous true treasures on him. If he were to suffer a loss, it would, indeed, be massive.
“Teacher, I simply cannot bring myself to give up such an opportunity,” Luo Feng said. “Besides, I have other bodies. Even if I fail, I still have the chance to pick myself up from the fall. Teacher, please be at ease.”
Luo Feng divided his force into two different routes. He condensed part of his godly power to form his Mosha body, which would take one of the two routes. Mosha body would take Shi Wu Wings and Star Tower and return to the primal universe. After all, everything about the World of Jin was unknown. If all his true treasures were brought in at the same time, the moment he failed, everything would be lost. By that time, it would be too late for regrets.
His earthling original body and Golden Horned Beast would take Blood Ghost Blade and the Boat of Mausoleum and set off on the other route, preparing to head into the World of Jin.
Following the route along the natural wormhole, they arrived at another space.
The Boat of Mausoleum was suspended in midair as Luo Feng looked out from his location and saw a miniature universe far in the distance. It was dark blue in color—a clear sign that it was not yet the time to enter.
“Even without any true treasure, given my current combat power, I can still stand at the apex of Universe Ocean all the same.”
Luo Feng was full of confidence but was unwilling to put all his true treasures at stake. That was why he had sent Shi Wu Wings and Star Tower back. But he still brought with him Blood Ghost Blade and the Boat of Mausoleum to charge his way through. Those two would be more than enough!
“Wait. Wait for the moment to enter this World of Jin.”
The Boat of Mausoleum waited silently.
Judging by its outer appearance, the dark blue miniature universe seemed to only have a diameter of around ten million light years. However, its power was stronger than any other universe supreme master’s miniature universe by countless times. In its surroundings, numerous palace true treasures were suspended. Great beings from every single group of power from the entire Universe Ocean would be waiting. Of course, this was being treated as a dangerous land that no other great being had ever dared to explore before, and so, not many groups of powers dared to charge their way in with full force. Most of them had sent a very small number of their great beings to conduct a prior round of exploration.
There were more than 200 great beings (including universe supreme masters), all seeking to be the among the first to explore the World of Jin.
Over 200 great beings were waiting outside the World of Jin, ready to enter to begin their exploration. On the other hand, various groups of top powers from Universe Ocean were mostly on their return journeys. For example, the strike force from the Hong Alliance was heading for the primal universe as fast as they could.
That was why, at that moment, other than the World of Jin—which was contained within its body—the other parts of the gigantic, human-shaped life form had regained peace and quiet and were no longer as boisterous with activities like earlier. Only a few great beings had stationed themselves in the void space.
Ripples appeared in the space.
A lone figure appeared out of nowhere. On his forehead was a pair of crystal horns, and he wore a black robe that radiated black light. It was none other than Sitting Mountain Guest.
Sitting Mountain Guest had arrived earlier than any of them, yet no matter who had previously come to explore—or the message that the three ancestral gods had conveyed to the public—not a single one of them noticed Sitting Mountain Guest’s presence.
Luo Feng, too, did not realize that Teacher Sitting Mountain Guest was around. He had even tried to ask about Sitting Mountain Guest through his transmission token, but there had been no reply from him.
Sitting Mountain Guest stood amidst the void space and looked quietly at the gigantic, human-shaped life form ahead of him. Silently, he looked at it. His gaze penetrated through time and space to cover every inch of its body. He scrutinized its hair, eyes, nose, ears, mouth, and even the ancient armor it wore.
Thoroughly, he looked at the humanoid life form as though he was observing an incredibly precious treasure.
“Finally…” Sitting Mountain Guest mumbled to himself. “It has arrived.”
He made his way forward one step at a time. Teleporting ahead, he very quickly landed on its body.
After his feet touched down on the vast, rolling mountain range, Sitting Mountain Guest took several steps forward. Every step was a teleportation. He reached the finger of the humanoid figure, then went on to the shoulder was, and eventually to the waist. There was a ruptured spot due to a wound—a place where something had broken through the armor.
Sitting Mountain Guest caressed the ruptured spot on the armor. At nine million light years long, it was impossibly huge.
“Ha…!” Suddenly, Sitting Mountain Guest let out a burst of hoarse laughter. “Haha! Hahahaha…!”
Sitting Mountain Guest laughed heartily and loudly. He was laughing so hard that his entire body trembled; he was laughing so crazily that, gradually, the laughter evolved into something bitter, forlorn, and shrill. It contained hysteria steeped in hatred and insanity.
The laughing slowly came to a stop. Sitting Mountain Guest sat down slowly, then caressed the armor. Golden, crystalline tears fell soundlessly.
“It’s here. It has arrived,” he said as he caressed the armor with trembling hands. “World of Jin!”
“The primal universe origin is known as the World of Jin?” Sitting Mountain Guest mumbled to himself. “Jin… Jin… The willpower of the primal universe origin has no emotions. How can it remember ‘Jin’?”
Sitting Mountain Guest raised his head to look at the vast void space overhead.
The chaotic airflow in the void space was revolving, and an overpowering willpower lurked there.
“I won’t be as foolish as Teacher Origin,” said Sitting Mountain Guest. “I will give you a chance.”
He shook his head, then took a single step forward and vanished within the void space.
