A few months later, Bai Yujing returned to the celestial heavens. She hid her face and quietly entered Southern Heaven's Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge.
It was very time-consuming to leave the Great Void and return to the celestial heavens, but it was much easier to travel from the celestial heavens to Southern Heaven. Qin Mu had spread the Spirit Energy Mutual Shift Bridge throughout the various worlds, and the transportation was convenient. It didn't take long for Bai Yujing to reach Southern Heaven.
In name, South Heaven was under Red Deity Qi Xiayu's control, and there were numerous heavens.
Bai Yujing was the first to arrive at the Southern Heavenly Continent where Qi Xiayu's celestial palace was located. She transformed into a young girl and traveled around. She had learned a lot from fighting with Son of Heaven Yin and was very careful in her actions.
"Celestial Venerable Huo managed Southern Heaven pretty well."
When Bai Yujing first went on a tour, she saw that the people lived and worked happily. It was like a pastoral garden, and the people had no competitive spirit. There was a harmonious scene everywhere, and she couldn't help feeling happy. She didn't think much of Qin Mu's actions.
'Celestial Venerable Mu is indeed wrong. Celestial Venerable Huo is right. The people here can live in peace, cultivate, become divine arts practitioners, and even become gods of the human race. This is pure land. Celestial Venerable Mu is too extreme!'
She shook her head and planned to leave. However, she suddenly stopped and continued to travel around to see the lives of the people.
'After all, I haven't stayed here for long. I'm just a bystander, and it's hard for me to see the true life of this world. For Celestial Venerable Mu to be able to achieve what he has now, he must have something extraordinary about him. I need to stay a few more days to see why he's so hostile towards Celestial Venerable Huo.'
She calmed herself down and examined the human civilization in Southern Heaven as a bystander.
After a few days, her expression gradually became grim.
She saw the funeral of the Southern Heavenly Human Tribe and felt that it was absurd and inconceivable.
"However, Celestial Venerable Huo did this for a reason. After all, the half-gods are powerful now, and it's already remarkable for humans to live to sixty years old."
She consoled herself. In the other heavens, there was no such good thing. She had once been to the other heavens of the Primordial Realm, and because of the harsh living conditions, the people there could only live to forty or fifty years old.
In comparison, many people in Southern Heaven could live to sixty years old. Sacrificing them to half-gods after they were sixty years old was considered a longevity.
Of course, Eternal Peace was an exception. The lifespans of ordinary people in Eternal Peace were even longer now. Because of the better living conditions and the prevalence of martial arts in their youth, there were over a dozen elderly people in every village.
"Eternal Peace can't be kept overnight and could be destroyed at any time. Of course Southern Heaven is better!"
Bai Yujing had also seen Nantian's education. Although she felt that it was wrong to follow three principles, four virtues, three principles, and five principles, the people would not rebel. If they didn't rebel, the suffering would be even lesser. She felt that it was understandable.
She saw the funeral of divine arts practitioners again.
When a divine arts practitioner couldn't become a god at seven hundred years old, they had to sacrifice themselves to the half-gods.
Bai Yujing muttered to herself, "Compared to other places, it's already very good. After all, the divine arts practitioners of the human race have a very high status here. They can cultivate in peace and don't have to worry about mundane matters. If they can't become gods, they can take the initiative to be sacrificial offerings. After all, they only have a hundred years left…"
She saw the gods of the human race again. There was no war between the human gods and the half-gods here. Instead, it was peaceful. The gods attended banquets with each other, and there was no conflict between races. It was very rare.
This place wasn't like the other heavens.
In the other heavens, the gods of the human race would suffer because their clansmen had received unfair treatment. Thus, they would fight with the gods of the half-gods and cause rivers of blood to flow.
"Celestial Venerable Huo didn't do anything wrong," Bai Yujing said softly.
She escaped from the gathering of the gods and came to the mortal world of Southern Heaven. Everything here was good, and she could understand Celestial Venerable Huo's good intentions. However, all of this made her seem fake.
However, she couldn't tell exactly what was fake.
She walked into a small town and planned to rest here for a while before leaving South Heaven. However, she discovered a strange phenomenon in this town. There were over ten thousand human residents in this town, yet there wasn't a single divine arts practitioner!
This was almost impossible.
Even though becoming a divine arts practitioner required aptitude, after so many years of development, becoming a divine arts practitioner wasn't difficult.
Bai Yujing asked in detail, and an old man who was sitting on the ridge with a louse in his arms told her, "Our ancestors didn't have divine arts practitioners, and our descendants naturally didn't have divine arts practitioners either. Divine arts practitioners are all influential families that have been passed down from the Dragon Han a million years ago. Which family would be willing to marry an ordinary person?"
Bai Yujing was stunned and smiled. "Can't ordinary people be called divine arts practitioners? You guys can also open up divine treasures and celestial palaces. Not to mention divine arts practitioners, even becoming gods is possible!"
The old man hurriedly said, "I don't dare to say that! Young lady, you are an outsider? What you are saying is disgraceful! The old masters of divine arts practitioners are all gifted gods and are the stars in the sky. They are destined to be high and mighty from birth!"
Bai Yujing was stunned.
The old man continued, "As laborers, we are destined to be laborers for the rest of our lives, planting crops. Our ancestors were destined to be farmers, so how would we dare to dream of becoming a divine arts practitioner old master?"
Bai Yujing opened her mouth, but no words came out.
During the first year of the Dragon Han Era, Celestial Venerable Yu, Celestial Venerable Hao, and the rest of the seven Celestial Venerables opened up the cultivation system of divine treasures, allowing ordinary people to open up their own divine treasures and become divine arts practitioners.
Meanwhile, the divine arts practitioners of South Heaven had somehow become influential families, and the divine arts practitioners had inherited the seven great divine treasures of their descendants. They were high and mighty, and they had become the gods of their innate divine power.
A family without divine arts practitioners would never become a divine arts practitioner no matter how talented their descendants were. They would never be able to escape the fate of being fixed on the farm!
However, the reason why the seven Celestial Venerables opened up their divine treasures was to let ordinary people grasp power and become divine arts practitioners!
Why were the fates of the people here fixed forever?
Why was it that as an ordinary person, his descendants had no chance of making a comeback?
"This Southern Heaven is a pool of stagnant water, a pool of stagnant water that can't stir up any waves!"
Fear grew in Bai Yujing's heart. Even though she hadn't awakened her vermillion bird soul, she still remembered the Dragon Han Era more than a hundred years ago. Back then, ordinary people could open their divine treasures to become divine arts practitioners. The descendants of ordinary people could also become gods!
If the ancestors couldn't do it, the descendants would be smart and have a chance to rise!
Celestial Venerable Huo's Southern Heaven had no such possibility!
"Those families of divine arts practitioners are no longer humans! The gods of the human race are also no longer humans! They are completely different from humans because they live in completely different worlds!"
Bai Yujing's heart was in a mess. What Celestial Venerable Huo had done was right. He didn't impart the method to open up divine treasures and celestial palaces, allowing ordinary people to be at ease. They accepted the three principles, five principles, three principles, and four virtues, unable to resist.
To let divine arts practitioners become influential families and control power, even if they were in power, they wouldn't resist.
The half-gods had enough 'food', so they didn't want to change anything!
Everything here was so perfect that it made one's hair stand on end!
Bai Yujing cried out and escaped from the South Heaven, running back to the celestial heavens.
The Southern Heavens made it hard for her to breathe.
Even though she knew that she was the reincarnation of South Deity Zhu Que, she had always viewed herself as a human after being reincarnated for nearly two hundred lifetimes.
Southern Heaven's current situation made her, as a human, slightly fearful.
At this moment, she wanted to take a look at Eternal Peace.
She came to Eternal Peace.
