The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 211
Chapter 211: Duality (1)
Wang Hao peered at his disciple, and he saw that besides from the completed tablet, there were also two other things laid out in front of him.
With his experience, he knew that these two things were a Foundation Establishment Scripture and a Mana Catalyst!
“This brat… where did he get these things? Did it come from the tablet?” With his control of the Space-Time Gyroscope, Wang Hao has the ability to playback everything that happened inside his storage. With this, he was able to see the things that Fang Lin did to obtain the two objects.
“Fang Lin… everything depends on you now. Don’t worry, I will protect you.”
Wang Hao knew that Fang Lin will be fine from the effects of the Underworld Suppressing Formation. The space inside the Space-Time Gyroscope can be considered to be an independent world. It was free and separate from the Universe. With that, it was able to be exempted from the effects of the formation.
But even with that separation, Fang Lin will still be able to sense the daos and laws of the universe since they were all-encompassing.
Now Wang Hao just have to deal with the external factors, like a certain group of practitioners that were now rushing towards their location. They were clearly aiming for Tang Li.
“Just come here bastards, Uncle Wang will crush you all!”
Fang Lin knew this moment was now perfect for him to break through the Second Stage. His foundation for both of his bodies were already firm. He already had reached the peak of the First Stage for both of his bodies already.
Aside from that, he was also able to acquire powerful techniques for his disposal. The Twelve Essences Martial Arts, Origin Energy and his Dual Marks further consolidated his already stable foundation.
And with all the items he needed for the breakthrough already present, Fang Lin can already proceed into the Second Stage.
The only thing he had to focus on was his insights.
To Fang Lin’s delight, he realized one more important feature of this tablet.
A normal Foundation Establishment Scripture already had a dao insight on it while a Core Spell already had the law insight on it.
But the tablet that Fang Lin had right now was different from that. The dao and law insights on the tablet were non-existent. These insights will only appear once a practitioner decides to break through. The insights that will appear depends on what the practitioner wants to comprehend.
That means if Fang Lin wants it, he can comprehend a different dao and law compared to his current Yin-Yang insights.
Before he got his bloodline mutation, Fang Lin was thinking that he will just proceed into the Second Stage with the Yin Law and Yang Dao. After all, he already had insights on it at the First Stage. Improving them to the Earth Grade will be the best thing that Fang Lin can do.
But now that he experienced the power of Duality, Fang Lin was hesitating on whether he should continue with the Yin-Yang insights that he had or will he dare to seek a higher stage of insights.
“Do I follow the traditional method, or should I pave a new path for myself?”
Fang Lin then shook his head, clearly aware that being indecisive right now would not help him at all. The best thing that he can do was to proceed with his breakthrough and leave to it his final results.
From what Xiao Ya had taught to Fang Yu, Fang Lin knew that the first things that must be done was to use the Foundation Establishment Scripture and the Core Spell to establish the insights. Only after that that the Foundation Establishment Pill and the Mana Catalyst will be used.
“Then let’s use this tablet now…” Fang Lin meditated until his mind and concentration reached its peak state. His eyes, which were how sharp and full of vitality looked at the tablet in front of him. He grabbed it with both of his palms and he sent his awareness inside of it.
Fang Lin’s mind shook, and then he looked around his surroundings in wonder. What he was seeing now was a vision, clearly influenced by his insights. The vision that he sees will depend on his insights.
He tried to separate his bodies, but to his surprise, he found out that he could not do it.
“Does that mean a male and female partners were supposed to comprehend the insights at the same time?” Fang Lin thought that this was highly probable, yet he could not imagine how other could pull it off.
Since Fang Lin had the Yin-Yang insights, there will be no problem on comprehending them together.
His vision changed, and now he saw himself floating upon the vast void of the Universe. There, he could see all the workings of the Universe.
He could see the flow of life of all the beings in the Universe. He saw that all of them follow a certain balance.
He saw wicked creatures wantonly killing life and he also saw beings that save lives.
“This is Yin-Yang.” A voice sounded on his mind, as if it was the only right thing in the world.
He then saw the beautiful places in the Universe, and also deplorable sceneries.
“This is Yin-Yang.” The voice sounded once more, this time a little bit louder than the former.
Fang Lin saw the good deeds and the bad deeds committed by everyone the Universe.
“This is Yin-Yang!” The voice started to get louder and louder after that.
He saw the start of the Universe, and also the end of it.
“THIS IS YIN-YANG!!!”
If it were before, Fang Lin would immediately believe on it. But right now, he was actually hesitating on accepting this fact.
Minutes passed by with Fang Lin just staring at the visions listlessly. Suddenly he grit his teeth as he erased the Yin-Yang Insights that he had.
“Urgh!” Blood spilled from his mouth, showing that he was clearly affected by what he did. After all, he abandoned the path laid out for him by his bloodline. This abandonment of his insights led to his body being wracked with pain, with his meridians and his dantian on the verge of destruction.
But Fang Lin was not discouraged by this. After his mutation, his view of things have changed already.
What he thought was right before was not enough right now.
Fang Lin ignored the pain on his body as the willed a new vision to appear.
The wide, encompassing universe changed into a view of a simple hut. There, he saw an old man laid on his bed, with the last traces of his life about to fade away. He gave a smile to his grieving family as he closed his eyes forever, not waking up.
As his family grieved for him, another scene was happening in a different place.
The house this time was a mansion, with countless servants working on it. In one of the most luxurious part of the mansion, a middle-aged man could be seen pacing back and forth endlessly. He looked anxiously to another room, were slight shouts of pain could be heard.
Minutes passed by, and the middle-aged man heard some cries coming from the room. He immediately rushed in, and there he saw a newborn baby. He cradled the baby in joy as his friends cheered for him.
Fang Lin who saw all this thought to himself,
“This contrast between the sad death of the old man and the joyous arrival of a newborn was part of the cycle of life and death. If it were me before, I will think that the old man’s death was the Yin and the birth of the child was the Yang. I was wrong!”
“It was universally considered that Yin-Yang was the symbol of duality. But that is not always the case! You cannot just randomly assign a part of duality to be either Yin or Yang. After all, each dualities were different from other dualities!
Fang Lin’s vision changed into a view of a war between two nations. On the other side of that planet, he saw two nations helping each other, becoming mutual allies.
Love and Hate. “This is not Yin-Yang!”
He then saw the destruction of a star that led to the creation of a black hole.
Creation and Destruction. “This is not Yin-Yang!”
What he saw next was the darkness of the night being swallowed by the appearance of the sun.
Light and Darkness. “This is not Yin-Yang!”
Fang Lin then saw more and more visions that further solidified his beliefs.
“There are countless dualities in the Universe. Some of them are close to the Yin-Yang Duality like the Male-Female and the Ice-Fire Duality. But there were countless dualities that cannot be just labelled as a Yin-Yang Duality! After all, Yin-Yang was also just a type of duality!”
Fang Lin’s eyes brightened as he continued his thoughts.
“Before my mutation, I thought my Yin-Yang insights can represent all the dualities in the Universe. Turns out I was too narrow-minded!”
Fang Lin took a deep breath as he declared,
“What I should seek was not the insights of the Yin-Yang. Instead I must focus on the concept of the Duality itself!”
Fang Lin’s Yin-Yang Godly Divine Beast Bloodline seemed to boil in excitement with Fang Lin’s declaration. He felt like every part of his body was singing in happiness, as if they were now free of some invisible shackles.
This just heightened Fang Lin’s determination to proceed on the new path he created.
“I shall comprehend Duality itself!”
