As Tang Wulin listened to the Light Dark Douluo, he was completely dazed. Her elucidations were at a different level. While he was still thinking of a way to rebuild Shrek, Her Excellency the Light Dark Douluo was already contemplating the problem between the planes.
Long Yeyue continued, “When we lost the Divine Realm, the direction of our Douluo Star’s plane’s evolution was greatly affected. That’s why the plane’s lord made such choices. However, judging from the circumstances, there may have been a mistake. The pace of human development has exceeded his expectations. The high paced development of soul technology has greatly affected the entire star’s life energy. That’s the reason for the low resources of this star especially on our Douluo Continent. Under such conditions, the resources on Douluo Continent will be depleted in the future. The soul beasts will go extinct and the environment will degrade. If all intelligent life dies off one day, then the Douluo plane will crumble.”
“At present, the plane’s lord has made some adjustments. Although it’s hard to tell the adjustments he made, it’s highly likely that it was made in your generation. Outer space development is trending at the moment. At the same time, I think that the lord of the plane wants to manipulate the ecosystem as well. Or rather, he wants to exploit more life energies for his own use.”
“In Shrek Academy, the Sea God Pavilion Master once made a bold inference fifteen generations ago. The abyssal plane could connect to our Douluo Continent plane because our Douluo plane’s lord wanted it so. He wanted an opportunity to rob the abyssal plane of its planar energy to replenish his own.”
This statement gave Tang Wulin a mind-blowing shock, “What? You’re saying that the abyssal plane is actually at the behest of the lord of our plane?”
Long Yeyue shook her head and said, “It’s just speculation. We don’t know the details either. It’s more probable than the abyssal plane latching onto us and wanting to devour us. After all, from the perspective of the plane’s lord, the abyssal plane is more powerful. On the other hand, from the entire plane’s perspective, our Douluo plane is more powerful than theirs.”
Tang Wulin’s brain went into overdrive as he pondered Long Yeyue’s words. “You’re saying that the abyssal plane’s, what’s his name, Sage King, is more powerful than our plane’s lord, but if we compared both the planes, ours is stronger?”
Long Yeyue nodded. “You can say that. In terms of the universe’s energy, the abyssal plane is more powerful. That’s because when the abyssal plane was separated, it had almost formed its own consciousness. At this level, it’s much more powerful than our Douluo plane. The abyssal plane, after having formed its own intelligence, began devouring other planes to make itself more powerful. That’s how it obtained the strength it has today. Existing in an energy form proved to be the most effective as it was easier to develop itself.”
“However, the process has its flaws too. The main difference is the abyssal plane’s development doesn’t have a physical body like the celestial body of Douluo Star. Why are the abyssal creatures able to convert into energy and return to the abyssal plane after their deaths and be regenerated as new combat strength? It’s because the abyssal plane isn’t a true celestial body. The whole plane is just a large body of energy. Every abyssal clan was born from the will of the abyssal plane’s lord. It divided its energy into countless portions. After these energies became intelligent life forms, it allowed them to develop autonomously.”
“In terms of the life levels, the abyssal plane is stronger. However, because they’re formless, when it reaches its critical point, it can’t be improved further. Simply put, high-level energy planes such as the abyssal plane can easily become a Divine Realm. On the other hand, the physical intelligent planes such as our Douluo Star has to go through an arduous path to become a Divine Realm. That’s the main difference between us.”
“However, our Douluo plane has its own advantages as well. Substantiation is an advantage which isn’t shared by the abyssal plane. A substantiated plane is much more stable than an energy plane. Many disasters in the universe can affect an energy plane but not a physical plane. Although our plane is not as highly ranked as the abyssal plane, we’re far better in terms of security. Although the lord of our plane doesn’t have form and substance much like the abyssal plane, its foundation is firmer. Thus, it’s quite difficult for the abyssal plane to devour us. At the same time, it’s equally difficult for us to devour the abyssal plane.”
“Nevertheless, our plane has a great advantage the abyssal plane doesn’t have. The life forms in the physical plane are autonomous. Although we’re influenced by the plane’s laws, there’s a possibility we can transcend it. That’s why there have been soul masters who cultivated into gods and entered the Divine Realm. However, in the abyssal plane, it’s virtually impossible to break free from the Sage King’s control. Every life form is a part of the Sage King.”
When she said this, Long Yeyue paused. Tang Wulin took the time to ponder what she had said. She then continued, “I’m telling you all this so that you understand the different planes and their meanings and objectives. As the one chosen by the Douluo plane, you’ll surely feel the killing intent of the abyssal plane. You’re the chosen one since you’ve got the potential to destroy the abyssal plane.”
“That’s why you were attacked by the Sage King who didn’t worry about the price he had to pay. Also, that may not be the last of it. The abyssal plane will surely seek to destroy you regardless of the sacrifice.”
Tang Wulin answered, “Since I’ve got the potential to destroy the abyssal plane, won’t they avoid me? Isn’t the issue resolved by breaking off the connection between our planes? I can’t possibly travel between planes to reach them.”
Long Yeyue shook her head. “It’s not so simple. The connection between the two planes can’t be severed easily. Even if the abyssal plane wants to cut the connection on its own accord, our Douluo plane might not be willing. Moreover, our plane’s lord surely has the abyssal plane’s coordinates already. When you’re prepared to destroy the abyssal plane, believe me, the plane’s lord will surely think of a way for you to venture into the abyss.”
“If I can comprehend this, don’t you think the Sage King will get it too? That’s why they won’t spare any effort to have you killed.”
A bitter smile appeared at the edge of Tang Wulin’s lips. When he was at the abyssal passage back then, he was able to borrow the planar power through the Blood Gods Great Array. With the appearance of Gu Yuena back then, they activated the Dragon God Transformation and was able to stop the Sage King from attacking them.
If the Sage King attacked him again in the future, what would he use to fend him off? It was not a question of whether he had confidence or not. The more critical issue was that he had no idea when and where the Sage King would make his move.
Long Yeyue said, “You don’t have to be so despondent. What we discussed just now may have sounded pessimistic. However, since you’re the chosen one, you’ll surely be highly gifted in natural talents. If the plane’s lord has chosen you, he’ll spare no effort in nurturing you to fight against the abyssal plane. Just as both the elders of the Tang Sect and Shrek, the Thousand Hands Douluo Tang San and the Spirit Ice Douluo Huo Yuhao, were most probably chosen by the plane’s lord, similarly you, too, were chosen.”
“Your cultivation will gradually become easier. More importantly, your luck will also improve. You’ll understand things more quickly and may even be under the plane’s lord’s protection. Should the abyssal plane intend to destroy you, the plane’s lord will surely assist you in whatever way he can. So, you don’t have to be overly worried. What you need to do is to grow quickly and reach the state where you can protect yourself as soon as possible.”
“Think about it, why were you able to break through the Spirit Domain? Why were you picked by the Life Seed? It’s because you’ve been chosen by the plane’s lord.”
Upon hearing what Long Yeyue said, Tang Wulin’s heart fluttered. His gaze changed slightly as well. Was he the person chosen by the plane’s lord? Was his improvement related to the plane’s favor?
If this had happened in the past, he would not have felt this way. However, after he had broken through to a seven-ringed Soul Saint’s cultivation base, he began to have such feelings.
The most direct impact he felt was after he planted the Life Seed at the bottom of the Sea God Lake. When his remaining seven Golden Dragon King seals were fortified from the Life Seed’s enhancement, it was as if the Life Seed knew what he needed.
