Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 736 - Equal to Gods

Everyone laughed, and they left while shaking their heads. What Celestial Venerable Ling was saying was too profound and deep, they couldn't understand her at all.

They were originally gathered around Celestial Venerable Ling to listen to this talented young woman talked about her comprehension and learning over these years so they could learn her paths, skills, and divine arts.

And now, what Celestial Venerable Ling had explained was beyond profound which obviously showed that she was mad. If they continued to hear a lunatic talk nonsense, wouldn't they miss the point of coming to the Jade Pool Meeting?

Soon, the surroundings of Celestial Venerable Ling was empty. Only Qin Mu, Founding Emperor, and the old bull were left.

Founding Emperor suppressed his voice and said, "The Surging River."

Qin Mu was astonished, and he nodded his head. He was bewildered at the same time.

The Surging River always flowed from the west to the east, never stopping from day to night. This huge river might be the current celestial river, but from the flow of the river, it didn't fit the divine art that Celestial Venerable Ling had described, to solidify the substance for eternity.

Unless the water molecules that formed the Surging River remained in a solidified state, resulting in the flow being just an idea, and actually, the river was flowing from the past to the future.

The river water was always still, and what was moving was the substances around the river water.

However, this kind of divine art was simply too inconceivable, and the principles involved were something that Qin Mu already couldn't understand.

'Maybe, it isn't the Surging River that's not moving, it's the fog...' He had a faint idea in his mind, but he didn't know how to create this kind of divine art.

The Surging River seemed to be a point to connect the past, present, and future. He had traveled back in time twice because he had stepped into the source of the Surging River and encountered the fog.

This kind of time travel was either caused by the Surging River or the fog!

Celestial Venerable Ling was still slightly furious, and she sneered. "All mediocre people, mediocre talents! When I create a divine art where the substance doesn't change, doesn't move, doesn't transformation, doesn't increase and doesn't decrease, all of you will know that there's no such thing as time! This senior brother, you understand me, am I right?"

She revealed a hopeful gaze.

"Sister Ling, I understand you very well."

Qin Mu suddenly said, "I understand your idea. When a substance changes and returns back to the past, it can allow an old man to reverse his growth back into a youth, and it can even bring back the dead. However, this isn't reversing time, it's reversing substance."

Founding Emperor nodded his head. "I understand as well. We use creation divine arts to grow plants, to grow animals, to let them grow up quickly, but this isn't time divine arts, they are creation divine arts. Creation divine arts change the arrangements of the substances inside the plants and animals to let them grow up faster. This isn't us bringing them into the future."


The old bull didn't understand, so he could only flap his ears and stare widely with a blank expression.

Celestial Venerable Ling was very exhausted, and she kicked the worn-out shoes on her feet, showing off her toes. She said, troubled, "But they don't understand me at all, they don't believe me. Even Celestial Venerable Yu and the rest think I'm crazy. Must I stop all of the substances in the world and reverse the flow of the substances to make them realize they were wrong and I am right?"

Qin Mu shuddered. Reverse the flow of all the substances in the universe?

This woman's idea was truly dangerous!

However, no one had such terrifying magic power.

"Sister Ling, you should continue on this path, maybe sometime in the future, you will meet someone who has returned back to the past through your divine art and proves to the world that their opinion of you is wrong."

Qin Mu revealed a smile and encouraged her. "Continue to walk down the path, prove that you are right!"

Celestial Venerable Ling was greatly encouraged, but she shook her head and said sadly, "I don't know if I'm able to prove this point, I'm too lonely. Almost everyone says that the Celestial Venerable Ling from back then no longer exists, only a crazy woman is left... Both of you are among the ones I've met that understands me, let us research together!"

Her eyes lit up again, and her hopeful gaze landed on them. She said fervently, "If I research by myself and have no friends that I can converse with, I'm really afraid I will just give up one day. I don't want to become a crazy woman in the eyes of others!"

Qin Mu hesitated for a moment, and he shook his head. "I don't have much time to stay here. Sister Ling, why don't we do this. We shall stay with you for these few days to discuss and research together. Even though his and my wisdom aren't as high as yours, we can still help to solve some problems. After a few months when we leave, you can decide if you want to be a crazy woman or not. How about that?"

Founding Emperor's heart stirred and looked at him. 'He knows we will be leaving after a few months? What else does he know? This fellow seems to understand me very much. Furthermore, he even has some enmity to me, could he be my future enemy? The person that understands me the most is none other than my opponent.'

Celestial Venerable Ling's eyes lit up, and she said with a smile, "As long as you guys don't find me crazy and slightly sloppy. In that case, I'll be staying with both of you for the next few months. These days, many of my past friends are holding me in disdain..."

Qin Mu said, "I only see big sister's soul and not big sister's form. In my eyes, big sister is a goddess that's unrivaled!"

Celestial Venerable Ling felt moved, and she still used the wooden hairpin to tie up her hair. "My palace is also in the Jade Pool Meeting, let us go there and research. Even though Celestial Venerable Yu feels that I'm wrong, he is still pretty nice to me, he gave me a palace."

The three of them followed her, and Founding Emperor asked, "There are many ancient gods today, and it is the busiest period of Celestial Heavens Meeting, why is Celestial Venerable Yu able to host a meeting in the Jade Pool? The Jade Pool should be the residence of some ancient god, right?"

"The Jade Pool is the place of pleasure for the chambers of concubines."

Celestial Venerable Ling walked forward and said, "Celestial Empress admires Celestial Venerable Yu very much, and since Celestial Emperor and Celestial Empress have to be personally at the Celestial Heavens Meeting, she has given the Jade Pool to Celestial Venerable Yu and allowed him to host the Jade Pool Meeting."

'Celestial Empress admires Celestial Venerable Yu, so she gave him the Jade Pool to host the Jade Pool Meeting?' Qin Mu and Founding Emperor looked at each other, and they started thinking.

They hadn't met Celestial Venerable Yu, but to be able to strike up a relation with Celestial Empress, he must be a smooth and slick person with money and power to help him. He shouldn't be just a genius that was able to open up the Spirit Embryo Divine Treasure.

As they were talking, a voice rang out, "Celestial Venerable Ling, are you still researching that divine art in which time doesn't exist?"

Celestial Venerable Ling stopped in his footsteps, and she had an unhappy expression. This girl wasn't shrewd, and she would just express her feelings on her face. She said unpleasantly, "Celestial Venerable Huo, what do you mean by divine art in which time doesn't exist?"

Qin Mu, Founding Emperor, and the old bull looked at that person talking, and they saw a youth walking over. He was covered in scarlet-red markings around his body, and it formed clothes that seemed like fire yet wasn't fire.

A strange apparition appeared behind his head, and that was a raised halo that looked like it was formed with flames. They didn't know if it was truly flames.

'No wonder he is called Celestial Venerable Huo.'

Qin Mu examined curiously and thought to himself, 'This is the founder of the Celestial Being Divine Treasure? Celestial Venerable Ling's talent has already taken my breath away, so this Celestial Venerable Huo must definitely be extraordinary too!'

He had already met two of the Seven Celestial Venerables, and these two people should be on the Divine Bridge Divine Treasure. Compared to those ancient gods with remarkable abilities in the celestial heavens, their cultivation wasn't too high.

Even if compared with half-gods, the abilities of the Seven Celestial Venerables were considered not good enough.

Yet the ones being called Celestial Venerable were these young men and young women.

The reason why they were called Celestial Venerable wasn't because of their cultivation; it was because of their achievements.

When Celestial Venerable Huo saw Qin Mu, Founding Emperor, and the old bull, he was slightly stunned, but he didn't take it to heart. "You are wasting your intelligence on something useless for far too long. Ever since you open up the Six Directions Divine Treasure, you have had no other achievements because you are focusing on trying to prove time doesn't exist! With your intelligence and talent, if you don't waste your energy and focus on how to break through the seven great divine treasures, the first one to break through might have been you!"

Celestial Venerable Ling shook her head and said, "Celestial Venerable Yu is smarter than me, and he's better at studying in greater depth. He is the first person that opened up the divine treasures and the reason why he has had no activity for the past few hundred years was that he set his gaze on an even further level. He is destined to be the one to surpass the divine treasures, it's not me."

Celestial Venerable Huo hated that she wasn't striving for more and said angrily, "Celestial Venerable Yu told me that you are the smartest among the Seven Celestial Venerables, if you had put in effort on the other realm, he would have no part in it. He said it himself! Now, he has already broken through and reached indomitable success, and that is to let divine arts practitioners live forever, to let divine arts practitioners be on par with ancient gods. This success should have been yours!"

The peachwood hairpin on Celestial Venerable Ling fell off from his aura, and her hair became messy. She took out a ribbon and tied her hair up into a ponytail. She shook her head and said, "That is merely a realm. If undying means one can become a god, I could have long stopped divine arts practitioners from dying. Just now this senior brother told me that the divine art I have created is called creation divine art. As long as one cultivates my divine art, their corporeal body can easily not die."

Celestial Venerable Huo frowned, and the ring of flame behind his head swayed gently. He looked at Qin Mu and shook his head. "You believe the words of a martial world liar?"

Qin Mu smiled and greeted, "Unlearned student pays my respect to Celestial Venerable Huo. Celestial Venerable Huo, I have paper and brush here, can you sign your name here? I'm from a small place and have never seen the world before. If I can receive Celestial Venerable Huo's signature, I'll bring honor to my ancestors!"

He took out paper and brush, sending to the front of Celestial Venerable Huo with a look of anticipation.

When Celestial Venerable Huo looked at his sincere expression, he couldn't reject him, so he quickly lifted the brush to write his name on the paper. "I don't care where you are from, if you bewitch Celestial Venerable Ling, I won't agree to it! Stop letting her waste her time researching how time doesn't exist and waste her youth! Celestial Venerable Yu has created a realm that could let divine arts practitioners be undying like ancient gods, yet here you are telling her some bullshit creation divine art can do the same thing! If you bewitched her some more, I'll beat you to death!"

Qin Mu blushed and said, "Creation divine art is said by me, but I didn't say creation divine art can allow one to be immortal."

Celestial Venerable Huo's expression softened, and he said, "I've wronged you..."

Qin Mu continued to say, "However, creation divine arts can indeed achieve immortality and be undying like gods even if one didn't cultivate to a god. Sister Ling is not wrong about this point."

Celestial Venerable Ling said in delight, "You are indeed the one that understands me the most!"

Celestial Venerable Huo's expression sunk, and he said, "Return my signature to me, I'm not giving it to you anymore!"

Qin Mu hurriedly kept the brush and paper with a smile. "No way, I still have use for it."

Celestial Venerable Huo was furious, and he stretched out his hand with a shout. "I'll beat you, this bewitching liar, to death first!"

Qin Mu's body trembled and revealed his three-headed and six-armed form. With a series of collisions, Celestial Venerable Huo crashed through a huge hall and vanished with a tumble. He left behind a path of flames.

Founding Emperor was shocked, and he almost cried out. 'How is a celestial venerable on Divine Bridge Realm so weak?'

Qin Mu was also shocked. He didn't use his full power and had only used eighty to ninety percent of his power. However, his attack speed was too fast, and as a result, Celestial Venerable Huo got blown away before his abilities could even be unleashed.

However, as a celestial venerable on the Divine Bridge Realm, wasn't his abilities a little too weak?

Even when compared to the divine arts practitioner on the Divine Bridge Realm, he was much inferior.

'This era is too ancient, and as a result, the paths, skills, and divine arts are still very rough.'

He exclaimed to himself, 'I can't use all of my force, if I use all of my force, I may just beat some ancestor level person to death...'

Founding Emperor stared at him ruthlessly and suppressed his voice. "If you dare to attack again, I won't forgive you!"

Qin Mu said with a smile and snorted softly. "I didn't mean to blow Celestial Venerable Huo away. Also, are your abilities higher than mine?"

Behind their back, Niu Sanduo's head was swelling. 'This is man, they flip their attitude like they flip books!'

Celestial Venerable Ling was abnormally excited as he stared at Qin Mu's three heads and six arms. She rubbed her hands and said with a smile, "This is a creation divine art? Your creation divine art is even stronger than mine! Even if you don't cultivate to the realm that Celestial Venerable Yu opened up, you can also be immortal and be equal to gods!"
