Chapter 910 – Fusing the Three Great Force Fields

“It would have been better if that Ancient Devil hadn’t blown himself up. If these two soul fragments were together then the memories would be much more complete.”

When Lin Ming was still at the Body Transformation realm, he had to be beyond careful when choosing which soul fragment to absorb, and he even had to choose the smallest ones. But the situation was different now. Besides the sphere of light in the center, Lin Ming could freely choose which soul fragment to absorb. Even if the Ancient Devil’s complete soul fragment were here, he had full confidence that he could absorb it.

Lin Ming didn’t randomly choose which of these two soul fragments to absorb. First, he used his perception to investigate them. He discovered that there was a small difference their size; the first soul fragment was about 10% larger than the second.

However, the smaller soul fragment had a faint black light flowing out from it. There even seemed to be a slight difference in the flow of time around the soul fragment.

On the other hand, the Law fluctuations around the larger soul fragment were much weaker.

Without a doubt, the smaller soul fragment contained more of the Ancient Devil’s comprehensions of Laws.

“I’ll choose this one then!”

Lin Ming grasped that small soul fragment. Most of the memories in this soul fragment were about its master’s early life experiences. These memories weren’t of much use to Lin Ming; he was mainly concerned about abilities, techniques, and Laws. These types of cultivation memories could allow Lin Ming’s strength to reach yet another level.

Woosh!

The soul fragment was completely swallowed up by Lin Ming and dissolved into his spiritual sea.

As Lin Ming’s cultivation grew, he began to understand that it was impossible for other martial artists to directly swallow up the memories of others like this. This was because every soul fragment, no matter how small or unimportant, would have a spirit mark left behind by its owner.

A spirit mark was a characteristic of the source of life. If one absorbed the spirit mark of others, their personality would become muddled, possibly splitting apart. Finally, they would fall into depravity and become a zombie.

But erasing the spirit mark was impossible. This was because a spirit mark was thoroughly threaded into every part of a soul, where it completely merged with the soul. If one used force to destroy it, then that would destroy the soul fragment itself.

But the Magic Cube had some mysterious and inerrable charm; any soul that was sucked into the Magic Cube would have its spirit mark immediately wiped out, becoming pure memories that could be directly absorbed by Lin Ming.

Lin Ming recalled the time he first entered the Magic Cube space, and saw the scene of Mo Qianxue using the Divine Crystal Magic Cube to instantly mince 10,000 Divine Realm Supreme Elders into divine soul fragments. Lin Ming guessed that the Magic Cube was likely a soul-based divine artifact. Its rank far surpassed his understanding.

As soon as the Ancient Devil’s soul fragment entered into Lin Ming’s spiritual sea, it started a fierce soul storm within him. Even though Lin Ming’s mind and will were firm, he still felt his mind shake as the terrifying spirit storm thundered through him, making his head ache as if it would explode at any moment!

This was one-third of the Ancient Devil, who had lived for tens of thousands of years!

After living for tens of thousands of years, just how much had the Ancient Devil experienced? Just how much information was within him? It was inestimable.

Lin Ming had only lived for 25 years, and he didn’t even remember what happened before he was three years old. In truth, he had 22 years’ worth of memories. With his 22 years’ worth of memories, he was absorbing one-third of tens of thousands of years’ worth of memories; the impact on his mind could be imagined.

Because Lin Ming practiced alchemy and also trained in the Overbearing Soul Tactic, his soul was extremely formidable, more so than most Divine Sea martial artists’. Yet even for him, having to accept such an impact to his soul made him feel as if his spiritual sea was cracking apart.

A person’s capacity for retaining knowledge in their spiritual sea was limited. The stronger their soul force was, the greater their capacity would be. It had to be known that a martial artist with a Xiantian cultivation would have photographic memory. As for martial artists with a Divine Sea cultivation or above, they could quickly scan through a jade slip and memorize the contents within. What took them one or two days to memorize would be enough for a mortal to remember for an entire life.

If one lived for tens of thousands of years or even hundreds of thousands of years, the amount of knowledge they would have to contain within their spiritual sea could be imagined. Thus, if one’s spiritual sea was not formidable enough and not large enough, they would have no choice but to only selectively remember useful information, discarding all else.

And the Ancient Devil had a massive amount of memories that were useless to Lin Ming. As Lin Ming felt his spiritual sea near the point of collapse, he revolved the Samsara martial intent and twisted apart all of these useless memories, leaving behind only cultivation methods, Concepts, training comprehensions, and other experiences that would be useful to him.

Several hours later, Lin Ming finally managed to absorb all of the Ancient Devil’s memories. Over 90% of the memories had been discarded, and not even 10% was left. All of them were deeply compressed within Lin Ming’s spiritual sea; he didn’t have the time yet to look over them in depth.

After obtaining the Ancient Devil’s memories, the first ones Lin Ming looked at were actually not those related to Concepts or cultivation methods, but those related to the Eternal Demon Abyss and the Sea of Miracles.

Unfortunately, things were different than he had thought. This Ancient Devil had followed several Empyreans 100,000 years ago to exterminate Empyrean Primordius and the force he established on the Holy Demon Continent. However, those Empyreans had vast, immeasurable armies, and the Ancient Devil was only a minor foot soldier amongst them. He simply didn’t have the qualifications to see how Empyrean Primordius had died.

Soon after the great war began, the Ancient Devil had his mortal body destroyed by someone else. Afterwards, for some inexplicable reason, he had been sealed in the Sea of Miracles. But, the Sea of Miracles and the Eternal Demon Abyss had been blocked off by Empyrean Primordius’ grand supernatural powers. The Yellow Springs River was a magic tool used by Empyrean Primordius to seal off the Sea of Miracles and Eternal Demon Abyss. This legendary Yellow Springs River had been refined from the corpse of a True Dragon; it was a powerful and incredible existence.

“The corpse of a True Dragon…” Lin Ming sucked in a breath of cold air. A True Dragon was a God Beast of the Divine Realm, a creature of the same rank as a Phoenix. Its strength had reached an unimaginable boundary. After Lin Ming obtained just a single drop of reverse scale blood, the benefits to him had been ridiculous. And after obtaining 100 drops of normal Ancient Phoenix blood, he also obtained a great power.

But the real bodies of a True Dragon and Phoenix were thousands or even tens of thousands of miles long. Just how much blood did they have in their bodies? It was unimaginable!

Thinking about it, if a Phoenix that was thousands of miles long burned the trillion jins of blood within its body, as well as all of its blood essence, just what sort of strength would it reach? Perhaps even destroying the boundless universe wouldn’t be difficult.

“I see… so the reason that it became difficult for anyone to ascend from the Sky Spill Continent was that Empyrean Primordius sealed off the Sea of Miracles and the Eternal Demon Abyss with the Yellow Springs River, and a side effect of this was that the channels connecting the Sky Spill Continent’s world to the Divine Realm were also affected. After that cataclysmic war, there were no longer any powerhouses from the Divine Realm with a cultivation above the Divine Sea that were able to descend to the Sky Spill Continent’s world. This was because this planet has been sealed by an invisible energy field. Only a Divine Sea martial artist like Old Man Good Fortune can come here because his cultivation is minor and weak, and he is able to enter through the gaps in this energy field.”

“The reason that the Sky Spill Continent has gradually deteriorated from its once grand and prosperous times is that the war of 100,000 years ago affected the rules of this world. At that same time, the seal of the Yellow Springs River cut off the connection between the Divine Realm and the Sky Spill Continent’s world. Since the origin energy from the Divine Realm cannot seep into the Sky Spill Continent, this made it so that there have been no martial artists born in this world that could surpass the Divine Sea realm. The late Divine Sea is already the extreme limit, and it is impossible to rid oneself of this curse because of the suppression of this world’s rules. Even if it were me, wanting to break through this curse would not be easy. In order to surpass the Divine Sea, ascending into the Divine Realm is inevitable.”

Without a doubt, the martial artists of the Divine Realm started at a point on a completely different level from those martial artists of the Sky Spill Continent. This was because the Divine Realm had a massive volume of origin energy, thus it was much easier for one to break through to the Divine Sea in the Divine Realm. It wasn’t like the Sky Spill Continent, where a martial artist had to painstakingly absorb the minor bits of origin energy here, and yet even have the possibility of failing during Life Destruction, turning into nothing but ashes.

Lin Ming didn’t complain or blame the heavens that he wasn’t born in the Divine Realm. This was because for a martial artist to be born in the Divine Realm, that in itself was also a part of their destiny. If a martial artist was born in the lower realms then they could only say their destiny was lacking.

But Lin Ming was an anomaly – he had obtained the Magic Cube when he was at the body transformation realm. If this weren’t the Sky Spill Continent but the Divine Realm, how could he have come upon such a great stroke of destiny? Could he have still reached his present achievements?

Thus, martial artists of the lower realms should never think that it would be better if they were born in the Divine Realm. If they were already mentally defeated before they even cultivated the martial path, then these thoughts would strangle them, making them always feel as if they were inferior to martial artists of the Divine Realm and correspondingly making it more difficult for them to have any great accomplishments.

After all, even in the abandoned and barren Sky Spill Continent, in these last 100,000 years there had also been outstanding individuals like the Demon Emperor, Emperor Shakya, and even Yang Yun.

Yang Yun had bravely said he would bring back the golden age of the Sky Spill Continent, restoring the glory of 100,000 years ago. But in order to do this, he first had to break the seal of the Yellow Springs River and reconnect the channels between the Divine Realm and the Sky Spill Continent’s origin energy. Lin Ming didn’t know whether or not Yang Yun could ever succeed, but just this ambition and spirit was startling. Yang Yun had an origin of a bastard son, had been humiliated for his entire early life, and yet he had endured all of this and still maintained a heart that was higher than the heavens!

A martial artist’s road of martial arts was already defying the heavens’ will.  Do not give up, do not accept fate, defy the heavens and earth, only by doing this could one defy the will of the heavens!

As Lin Ming understood this, he felt a faint sublimating of his soul, as if his soul force had taken another step forwards. He could vaguely feel the Prime Emperor martial intent, Asura martial intent, and Death God martial intent slowly gathering as if there was a shift towards fusing together.

A fusion of martial intents was a process of comprehension. If one couldn’t comprehend this, it was useless no matter what sort of heavenly materials one ate up!

Thinking back, Emperor Shakya had once sat underneath a Bodhi tree and meditated for seven days and seven nights, fusing together seven different martial intents and breaking through the void with his martial path. And at the time, he had only been at the seventh stage of Life Destruction!

Such a talented individual didn’t experience any kind of great lucky chance and yet was able to rely only on their comprehension to reach that step. How amazing was that!

“We both came from the abandoned Sky Sill Continent. Emperor Shakya was able to fuse seven different kinds of martial intents, but I cannot manage to fuse together three? Do I, Lin Ming, really have such a great difference with others?

“My heart of martial arts is like the sun, moon, and stars, immortal and inextinguishable! My martial arts will won’t stop here, it will perpetuate into infinity! Although my soul and flesh haven’t yet become eternal, once I step foot onto the peak of martial arts, I will reverse the samsara of the heavens and earth and live as long as the universe exists!”

In that moment, Lin Ming suddenly gained insight and all of his thoughts became incomparably clear and free-flowing. He only felt a deep heroic spirit rise from within him and impact towards the highest heavens!

Although Lin Ming had never given birth to thoughts that it would be better if he were born in the Divine Realm, he had still been in awe and wonder of the martial artists of the Divine Realm and the geniuses there. He was fully aware that there was no limit in the universe and that there would always be a higher mountain, a stronger person. He was aware of just how great this world was and how tiny he was.

Once, Lin Ming had thought that realizing all of this was a symbol of his horizons expanding, but now, his thoughts were even purer and more defined. Even if there was no limit in this universe and there was always a higher mountain, a stronger person – so what? Even if the Divine Realm was endless, and there were over a billion great worlds in the lower realms, with countless other smaller worlds – so what?

My road of martial arts is to conquer all, overcome all obstacles, and defy the will of the heavens!

I want to defy the heavens, I want to become a demon, I want to become an immortal, I want to step onto the peak of all martial arts and become an existence that surpasses an Empyrean!

      1. Actually, you can. Just pick a wall that you can hit over or something. Or try to become good enough to hit Empyrean level shots that can break all obstacles! Never give up! Raawr

    1. Agreed…he seems to have made this decision rather quickly and easily. Of course, it will turn out to be the correct decision because he’s the main character. But in reality, it feels like more information about the divine realm would be much more useful in the long term rather than whatever it is he’s hoping to learn from this devil thing. In any case, the fact that he didn’t even consider anything else is irritating to me. There should have at least been some internal debate about whether it was the best option. Then again, his choice of memories has seemed weird at other times. Like when he chose to absorb a fragment from the demon emperor guy, he was like “Looks like I have no choice but to follow the path of slaughter!” Then recently he said/thought something along the lines of “I really don’t have any particular talent in the path of slaughter.” and talked about how much less powerful his incomplete techniques from those methods were than the other techniques he has access to. So the fragment was useful for awhile, but now the stuff that he learned from the demon emperor doesn’t have as much bearing on his combat abilities anymore. This fragment will probably be the same; useful to further the plot or for some more immediate benefit, but later in the story is likely to be (mostly) irrelevant.

      1. I mean, he was planning to do this for a while. Like, before he even set off to the Demon continent, he’d decided the plan was: get the prime emperor FF –> kill the steppes master for succulent blood –> steal the devil’s memories for profit and weaknesses. So he made the decision, along with pros and cons, back then. It would actually be pretty weird and not make sense if he did what you suggest, which would be to think of a plan, carry it out and then at the last step start dithering about wheteher it was the best option. Doesn’t really match the decisive personality that the author has built up for LM…

        1. That’s not what I’m saying. I’m saying he should’ve actually taken some time to consider whether it was the best option back when he first made the decision. He didn’t, he just decided pretty much instantly after the thing got absorbed. Which, by the way, was less than 20 chapters ago in 892. So it’s not like this plan was even all that well-founded story wise. The devil itself has been around since 890. He literally decided that absorbing the devil’s fragment was the right choice in the space of one paragraph in chapter 895. Yeah, it happens in these stories. I know. Just me personally, I would have accepted how contrived this is more easily if there was at least a bit more time devoted to the decision.

      2. For one, his Penetrating Rainbow, Chasing Thunder/Fire, and Bury the Heavens were based on the Great Desolate Halberd Art he got from the Demon Emperor’s memory fragment. Also, the choice is not that weird because he was in the Demon Emperor Imperial Palace, with Life Destruction powerhouses on the loose. Unless he had an edge on them, he would easily die off. And direct memories of the Demon Emperor about the palace would help him a lot more than other random memories. And when he initially chose the path of slaughter, it was because it had the Great Emperor’s aura on it. And since he knew Mubai’s strength, accompanied by the fact that he could absorb it and also that it had a higher chance of increasing his strength (Halberd kinda = Spear), it was naturally the better choice than I dunno, some Divine Realm potter’s. And right now he’s technically confronting the Ancient Devil, an existence from the Sea of Miracles. If he knew more about his enemy from his soul fragments, his techniques, his strengths, his weaknesses, wouldn’t that easily give him an edge? Also, the law comprehensions would help him out, more than a Divine Realm Potter’s memories. Wild Cards be trumped by assured cards. And I think pretty much every memory has had it’s uses, even now. The Inscription sidejob has been played down too much though. Also, what he needs right now are techniques that can increase his strength now. If he gets some Super Technique from some other memory that he can use in the Divine Sea Realm or above, isn’t it basically useless, considering the fact that his waifus could also potentially come to harm? Or some other people. Root out the bad stuff before they rule the garden.

      3. Yeah, that always seemed kind of contrived. He said he was bad at the path of slaughter, and this was only a little while after returning from the Demon Continent, where he, at a very young age, in their holy land of the path of slaughter, beat every genius hands down at all their tests and shit there. I mean if he is bad at it then who is good?

        Speaking of which whatever happened to the Samsara martial intent? That Imp just said he didn’t have any spiritual/soul attacks…. but that’s not true, they just haven’t been mentioned for like 200 chapters. That doesn’t seem like something that should get weaker/become irrelevant either.

        1. how is that contrived? He has no talent for the slaughter path, if he was good with slaughter he would be able to naturally come up with new moves or w/e that uses slaughter concepts. His talent is mostly in thunder/fire due to being super augmented by the heretical god seed and he has shown to have natural talent in time and space laws.

          The only reason he got a jump start in slaughter path is because he was using techniques made from the demon emperor, but the author has hammered in over and over that copying another person’s techniques reduces it’s effectiveness alot.

          Sometimes I feel like I’m not even reading the same novel as you guys. I complain about authors repeating stuff over and over, but probably they need to repeat things over 10+ times to get their point across to some people.

          1. It’s different to say he’s bad at it just because of those techniques versus being bad at in general. And again, bad is very relative. He is still apparently better than literally everyone else, including the likes of Demon Emperor himself when he was young. Besides which I recall that he used elements of those techniques in making his own techniques, like with the Blood Halberd seals into space seals or something, so it can’t even be said that he abandoned it entirely. The difference between us is probably just that you’re a muppet that swallows whatever the author says without questioning it.

          2. I understand what you mean, but first did you binge read or have been following since GT? Because I started AST after it hit 700 chips and feel like after the beginning it’s been pretty luck laster and I’m wondering how did this make it to 700+ There are so many hole just up to the 200 chp lvl and the Mc personality is so consistently inconsistent that even normal small things are making me struggle to read it as I notice them. I think this has to do with me binging also although no excuse for the crazy plot bs that happens for no reason but unlike that MW at least like how you said he followed the DE technique it’s like saying playing sports. You can imitate other people’s form but eventually the best way to play would be your own way. Of course if you give someone the secret form to score highly often you can still be very good. But it also depends on the person

      4. It’s not that he’s bad at killing- the slaughter path uses the blood to create seals.
        He learnt that, and used it to create his own path- using space fragments to imitate the blood seals and do more damage than the blood seals ever did.

    2. I think you are forgetting that this demon is over 100,000 years old with a silver perfection stage battle spirit. Even a fraction of the demon’s strength right now is more powerful than the strongest divine sea master on Lin Ming’s world.

      The demon at full strength is probably comparable to divine realm masters, and this demon being 100,000 years old is probably alot older than the masters trapped in the cube. Since the demon emperor was trapped in the cube, most of the masters in the cube should be around 10,000-30,000 years old so this demon would actually know more history since he is even OLDER than 99% of the old fogies in the cube.

      Also the demon’s soul is rather intact and large so Lin Ming is more likely to get WHOLE techniques/knowledge from the demon’s soul than the smaller souls of the other old fogies.

      1. I know its been months since you posted this, but i just gotta say this.

        This demon’s “soul” sure exist for over 100,000 years but that doesn’t corresponds to how long he lived.
        Normally one’s life span is an indicator to how high a boundary a martial artist have achieved. and it is stated early on this chapter that this Ancient Devil is just some random cannon fodder that got killed and sealed on the war between the Empyreans of the Divine Realm.
        This only shows that compare to those experts of the Divine realm, this Devil is only at the bottom of the barrel.
        Its only right to say that he’s way stronger than the martial artists of Sky Spill Continent, but to say that he’s stronger than all of those powerhouses that participated in the siege of Verdant Feather Holy Land, then i say that’s just like comparing mud to a cloud as the author always says.
        I don’t even know how you even arrive at this thought.

    3. You fellow daoists misundertood , LM doesnt want an super strong memory of divine elder right now because he prioritize his survival, he choose the devil fragment so he will know its weakness and comprehension in the law of darnkness and time which is beneficial in initial stage , unlike choosing a old fogey yeah you can have a long term benifits but how will u keep your life if you cash with the devil and the coffin kid?

      1. Also the samsara soul attack still exist it just that he has an battle spirit so he doesnt need to use it and its useless to use it in powerful enemies specially the imp which specialize soul attack , so that old imp thought LM doesnt have soul attack cuz he didnt use it , its a hint when he said he doesnt need the soul attack skill of that imp

    4. he needs to find the weakness of this devil first. You’re talking about a 100,000 year old existence with insane strength. Lin Ming can get some old Gandalf memories after he PKs the devil/yang yun.

      Plus, he can kill the other bad guys so he should be able to get at least 2 memories if those guys are strong
