Chen Xi’s pupils constricted when he heard this. A mysterious area which only cultivators who have stepped foot onto the Ultimate Path towards the Dao are qualified to enter?
Where is that?
There’s such a mysterious place in the Ancient God Domain?
Zhen Liuqing’s warm, pretty, and fair face had a wisp of a complicated expression on it. “It’s exactly because my Master noticed the specific location of that mysterious place that we incurred such a calamity. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to lay eyes upon in before his death.”
Chen Xi patted her on the shoulder as a form of consolation.
Zhen Liuqing glanced at Chen Xi and suddenly said, “Do you know where your Master went?”
My Master? Chen Xi’s heart shook. That title naturally represented the Master of Oracle Mountain, Fuxi!
A long time ago when he was still cultivating in the three dimensions, Chen Xi was clearly aware that Fuxi had left Oracle Mountain for some unknown reason, and he hadn’t returned until now.
Chen Xi would occasionally feel curious about exactly where this Master he’d never met had gone and why there had been no news about his Master until now?
Now, when he heard Zhen Liuqing, it made Chen Xi practically blurt out. “Could he have gone to that mysterious place you spoke of?”
Zhen Liuqing nodded. “He should have. It isn’t just the Master of Oracle Mountain, the Master of Nuwa’s Dao Palace, the Dean of the Dao Academy, the Dean of the Divine Institute, the Sovereign Sect’s Master, and even some terrifying existences who are on par with them have entered that mysterious place.”
Chen Xi couldn’t help but feel shocked. Where exactly is it hidden? Why has it drawn over so many extraordinary leading experts?
Could it be related to the true secrets of the Ultimate Path towards the Dao?
It’s definitely not so simple.
When Chen Xi thought about it carefully, he realized that the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos was similarly related to the true secrets of the Ultimate Path towards the Dao, but it hadn’t drawn all those great figures over. So, it was obvious how extraordinary that mysterious place was when it was compared with the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos.
“Where exactly is it?” Chen Xi couldn’t help but ask this question when he thought about all of this.
“The three dimensions.” Zhen Liuqing didn’t conceal it and said frankly, “The reason my Master had been constantly living in seclusion in the Unknown Lands of the Dark Reverie was to find out the location of that mysterious place. Otherwise, with the cultivation he possessed, he would have entered the Ancient God Domain to cultivate a very long time ago.”
The three dimensions…. Chen Xi couldn’t help but feel dazed when he heard the name of this extremely familiar place.
Since the beginning, he’d always felt that there was something unique about the three dimensions. However, when he’d just entered the Ancient God Domain, he’d heard numerous cultivators speak with disdain about the three dimension and call it a lowly and trash plane.
However, as his cultivation improved step by step and he obtained even more knowledge, he realized that the three dimensions were completely different from his past understanding, and it wasn’t a lowly plane like the cultivators of the Ancient God Domain had said!
The mysterious Goddess of Arambha Temple had once said that only the three dimensions had a cycle of reincarnation, and that was why Qin Xiuyi, Li Fuyao, Shi Yu, and the others had no choice but to enter the three dimensions to reincarnate.
In other words, even the Ancient God Domain didn’t have a cycle of reincarnation!
When he entered the Door of the Last Days and found out about the transition between the 8 eras before the current era, Chen Xi finally understood that besides the River Diagram, only the three dimensions had been able to survive until now after an entire 8 eras had risen and fallen!
So, regardless of whether it was the Ancient God Domain or the 8 eras, all of them were born from within the Chaos of the three dimensions!
This string of facts had further proven how unique the three dimensions were.
Moreover, his Eldest Senior Brother, Wu Xuechan, had told him the reason Oracle Mountain, Nuwa’s Dao Palace, and the Sovereign Sect had their sects in the three dimensions was similarly because there were so many unique points about the three dimensions.
Even if one were to count the extraordinary leading figures that had been born throughout the world, one would be able to discern how extraordinary the three dimensions were.
For example, the Divine Dark Parasol Tree, Ant Exalt, Chaotic Divine Lotus, Third Netherworld Emperor, Fuxi, Nuwa, the Sovereign Sect’s Master, and many other existences had been born in the three dimensions!
Most importantly, both Godsbane Heaven and the Origin Heaven had been born from within the chaos of the three dimensions!
All of this was sufficient to prove how ancient the three dimensions were and how mysterious and inconceivable it was.
However, when Zhen Liuqing said that mysterious place was situated within the three dimensions, Chen Xi was able to quickly come to an understanding even if he still felt shocked by it. After all, it was within reason.
Chen Xi took a deep breath and suppressed the disorderly thoughts in his mind as he asked. “But where exactly within the three dimensions is it?”
“The Unknown Lands.” Zhen Liuqing casually passed the jade slip to Chen Xi and said, “Some information related to that mysterious place which my Master left behind is recorded here.”
Chen Xi took it from her and muttered. “The Unknown Lands…. It really was the Unknown Lands….”
The Unknown Lands was once called the ‘Minor Immortal Dimension’ by all the cultivators of the Dark Reverie, and numerous mysterious and ancient sects resided there.
For example, the Saintly Land of Ascension, Dhyana Forest Temple, Azurefrost Academy, the Integration Sect that Daoist Dao Que and Zhen Liuqing were from…. Most of them were ancient sects, and they mostly had just a few disciples while some even just had a single one!
But regardless of whether it was one or many, all of them had grasped a completely different form of cultivation technique and energy, so it was obvious how mysterious the Unknown Lands were.
For example, when the Chaos had just been split open, Daoist Dao Que’s Integration Sect could even rival Nuwa’s Dao Palace!
All of this was part of the information and rumors Chen Xi had obtained while he was at the Dark Reverie.
When he thought about it carefully now, Chen Xi realized that he’d underestimated the Unknown Lands!
This caused him to be unable to help but sigh with emotion. What I once saw is not the same anymore.
Actually, nothing had changed but his understanding of it.
It was even to the extent that Chen Xi recalled how his father had relied on the Saintly Land of Ascension in the Unknown Lands to sneak into the Immortal Dimension!
At that time, Chen Xi’s father, Chen Lingjun, had probably recovered his memories from his previous lifetime, and he was the leader of one of the Divine Dao Protector Clans, the Chen Clan. Moreover, he was even a Daolord who’d participated in the Battle of Dao Protectors!
Perhaps father knew how extraordinary the Unknown Lands were, and that was why he chose such a method to return to the Immortal Dimension?
The more he thought about it, the more he felt that he’d almost grasped many things he didn’t understand in the past, and he’d sorted out many valuable clues.
At the same time, some one-sided knowledge he possessed had been overturned, and he’d obtained new knowledge and understanding of it.
“However, even if you possess this jade slip, you’ll probably still be unable to return to the three dimensions now.” Zhen Liuqing sighed.
“Why?” Chen Xi’s brows raised.
“The Order and Laws of the Heaven Dao in the three dimensions disallows it. The strength possessed by any god from the Ancient God Domain has surpassed the limits that the three dimensions can endure. Since the ancient times, only a handful have been able to return to the three dimensions from the Ancient God Domain.” Zhen Liuqing explained. “You’ll understand if you think about it carefully. If one can travel casually between the three dimensions and the Ancient God Domain, then it would have probably been taken over by the Ancient God Domain.”
“That’s true.” Chen Xi seemed to be lost in thought. “However, since Eldest Senior Brother and the others were able to return to the three dimensions, Xiuyi and Shi Yu were able to return there to reincarnate, and my Master, the Sovereign Sect’s Master, and the Master of Nuwa’s Dao Palace had been able to return there to enter the mysterious place you spoke of…. All of this proves that it isn’t impossible to return to the three dimensions.”
His voice hadn’t finished resounding through the air when a warm voice resounded from outside the hall. “Exactly.”
After that, the door was pushed open before a man with snow white hair, a handsome appearance, and a warm bearing walked in.
Surprisingly, it was the Grand Lord of Oracle Mountain, Wu Xuechan!”
“Eldest Senior Brother!” Chen Xi stood up and spoke with pleasant surprise. He’d heard from Li Yang that Wu Xuechan and Tang Xian had been summoned away by Founding Ancestors Di Shun and Wen Daozhen to fight against the Sovereign Sect’s scenes. So, he’d thought that he wouldn’t be able to meet Wu Xuechan for some time. Never had he imagined that Wu Xuechan would actually make an appearance at this moment.
“Grand Lord.” Zhen Liuqing stood up as well and bowed to him.
After he walked in, Wu Xuechan smiled and indicated that there was no need for formalities and teased. “I’d arrived a long time ago, but I couldn’t bear to disturb the two of you when you were talking so happily. So, I stayed outside and unintentionally heard the conversation between the two of you. I wasn’t trying to be rude.”
Chen Xi waved his hand and said, “Don’t worry about it. Eldest Senior Brother’s arrival is exactly what Junior Brother wished for.”
Wu Xuechan smiled, and then he pondered deeply before he said, “Little Junior Brother, now that the Heaven Dao has undergone an unexpected change, the Order and Laws of the Heaven Dao have become extremely violent while unexpected events occur frequently. It isn’t the time to return to the three dimensions.”
Chen Xi couldn’t help but ask. “Then when exactly is the best opportunity to return?”
Wu Xuechan thought for a moment and said, “Perhaps when you return from the Battle of Dao Protectors.”
Chen Xi continued. “Then do you know about that mysterious area in the Unknown Lands?”
“I do, it was where the Chaos of the three dimensions was born, and it’s called the Dao Terra Firma. The quintessential secrets of the Chaos of the three dimensions is hidden within there. However, it’s too dangerous. Even I am not confident of my ability to survive there, so I haven’t stepped foot into it.” Wu Xuechan spoke frankly and didn’t avoid telling them that he didn’t dare enter it rashly as well.
Apprehension couldn’t help but arise in Chen Xi’s heart, and he knew that the mysterious area called the Dao Terra Firma was much more terrifying than he’d expected!
“Then what exactly have Master and the others gone there to look for?” At this moment, Chen Xi thought of his Master, Fuxi, who’d left a very long time ago, and he recalled the other extraordinary figures like the Master of Nuwa’s Dao Palace and the Master of the Sovereign Sect who’d entered the Dao Terra Firma as well.
