Chapter 1739: Myriad Impenetrability
Xiang Shaoyun had a world within him. That was a secret nobody knew. After he absorbed the primal chaos power, Yu Caidie, who was cultivating within his astral cosmos sea, benefited from it as well.
Yu Caidie had been in seclusion since consuming the vermilion bird fruit. She had grown as much as those who had cultivated in the primal chaos wall, or perhaps she had grown even more.
Her mount had consumed the vermilion bird feather and had similarly grown rapidly. With a large amount of primal chaos energy entering Xiang Shaoyun's astral cosmos sea, they would inevitably absorb some of the primal chaos energy as well.
Additionally, Xiang Shaoyun was afraid that he wouldn't be able to digest all that energy, so he transmitted it to Yu Caidie and had her freely absorb the incoming primal chaos energy. Because Xiang Shaoyun had processed the primal chaos energy in his astral cosmos sea, it was safe for absorption.
Thus, Yu Caidie, who was at the sixth-stage Rebirth Realm, started madly absorbing the primal chaos energy. She managed to form the primal chaos flame, and her God Realm energy started surging.
With Yu Caidie and the phoenix absorbing the primal chaos energy, the divine discerning tree naturally wouldn't miss out on a chance like that. It had grown into a towering tree. Nine colors constantly shone around its body. Its absorption speed was much greater than Yu Caidie's and the phoenix's, and it was able to share a large portion of the pressure Xiang Shaoyun was feeling from all the primal chaos energy.
"Worthy of being the world creator. I've chosen the right master," said the divine discerning tree in joy.
Xiang Shaoyun himself also started increasing his cultivation. However, just absorbing the primal chaos energy alone wouldn't remove Xiang Shaoyun and Dugu Qiubai from the danger they were in. The divine primal chaos lotus had unending energy. It was only a matter of time before Xiang Shaoyun exploded from an oversupply of energy. His absorption speed was unable to surpass the speed at which the lotus was releasing primal chaos energy.
"Kids, die!" the divine primal chaos lotus started roaring.
A boundless profundity of primal chaos weaved about, squeezing the two as the power of destruction continuously assaulted their souls and reduced their life force. Dugu Qiubai's skin cracked, and he bled from his seven orifices. He looked incomparably miserable. Xiang Shaoyun was only slightly better off, but his body was near its limits as well.
Xiang Shaoyun started forming hand seals repeatedly. His body emanated an abstruse aura, and a nine-colored radiance surrounded his body. Bit by bit, the profundity of primal inception started leaking from his body.
The profundity of primal inception contained the profundities of the five elements, four divisions, and the two extremities. A power that devoured and destroyed manifested. The primal chaos power around Xiang Shaoyun started being devoured and destroyed, and he was immediately in a much better position.
"Wh-what power is that kid using? Why am I feeling suppressed?" exclaimed the divine primal chaos lotus with a slight trace of fear.
It could sense Xiang Shaoyun's aura suppressing its power, making it impossible for it to put more pressure on Xiang Shaoyun. If this continued, it would be forced to expel Xiang Shaoyun from its petals. At that thought, it opened a tiny gap between its petals, and a burst of primal chaos energy erupted from that gap, attempting to blast Xiang Shaoyun far away.
Unfortunately for the lotus, Xiang Shaoyun refused to leave. His comprehension of the profundity of primal chaos had reached a new level thanks to the pure profundity of primal chaos branded on his astral cosmos sea.
Before heaven and earth came into existence was the absolute beginning.
That was when primal inception energy filled the boundless universe. This energy was a power capable of unending permutations. It wreaked havoc throughout the universe. After undergoing years upon years of development, heaven and earth formed, and primal chaos, yin and yang, wind, lightning, and the elements separated from the primal inception energy. Countless living beings came into existence and transformed into countless races. Worlds came into existence.
The primal inception power was the origin of all powers. It encompassed the profundities of all powers. It was all-embracing, like how all rivers ran into the sea.
Xiang Shaoyun's soul clone constantly gained more comprehension of the profundity of primal inception. His astral cosmos sea started undergoing astonishing changes. Some unknown things started taking form for no apparent reason. The origin life forms in the astral cosmos sea started splitting up and growing, spreading more and more seeds in the astral cosmos sea to form a lush world.
Xiang Shaoyun was in a state of comprehension, but he was also fully aware. He seemed to have personally witnessed the countless permutations of the profundity of primal chaos. He had a feeling that he could untangle the web of primal chaos profundity all around him at any moment he wanted.
When the lotus assaulted him with the profundity of primal chaos, Xiang Shaoyun instinctively surrounded his body with a layer of primal inception energy. An impenetrable barrier rippled along the surface of his body, transforming the profundity of primal chaos into nothingness.
That was an ability exclusive to the primal inception power. It granted one immunity to the profundities of all powers. It was most definitely a heaven-defying ability, and it was proof of how terrifying the Primal Inception Physique was.
In the future, he would be able to easily dissolve the profundity of all other elements encountered. His opponents' trump cards would be weakened considerably, granting him an advantage over his opponents.
"How is that possible? This kid actually dissolved my power?" the divine primal chaos lotus exclaimed in disbelief.
"I understand now. By branding one's soul and god body with the profundity of powers, after reaching the great mastery of these profundities, my body will be impervious to all profundities. I will be unequaled," said Xiang Shaoyun as his divine dao eyes activated. Two beams of primal inception profundity shot out, piercing through the primal chaos profundity before him and striking the divine primal chaos lotus.
Xiang Shaoyun's first brand of the profundity of powers was etched on his soul. He had also focused the profundities of powers on his divine dao eyes to further enhance his eyes, turning them into a pair of godly eyes.
The lotus was unable to stop his eyes. After it was struck, it trembled and wailed.
At the same time, it hurriedly withdrew its petals and released both Xiang Shaoyun and Dugu Qiubai. It then formed layer upon layer of a primal chaos wall around itself to defend against the two. Unfortunately for the lotus, it was pointless.
Xiang Shaoyun's primal inception profundity was too powerful. No power in existence could stop its advance. The divine primal chaos lotus was struck by yet another attack, and it wailed repeatedly. Xiang Shaoyun's attack was enough to damage its core. If this continued, he would be able to completely disable it.
When Dugu Qiubai saw that, he smiled helplessly and said, "Worthy of being a physique tiered higher than the Primal Chaos Physique. I can't compare with him."
Dugu Qiubai had been searching for a defeat since young. Xiang Shaoyun was the one to deliver him that defeat, and once again, Xiang Shaoyun dealt him another blow, making him realize that he truly was incomparable to Xiang Shaoyun.
"Submit or die," said Xiang Shaoyun coldly.
"Stop! Stop! I submit!" The divine primal chaos lotus finally surrendered, not wishing to have its consciousness erased.
