Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 907 - Eternal Fighting Spirit

Within the dream world, Xu Shenghua finally finished learning the results of the reform. Time seemed to slow down in the dream, and he felt like two to three years had passed and was really exhausted. However, the truth was, they had only woken up to eat a few times.

Nevertheless, Qin Mu's dream world didn't collapse.

Xu Shenghua was bewildered. He saw Qin Mu take out a mirror and place it upright, and the mirror surface grew as it projected out countless jade scrolls.

Xu Shenghua went forward and observed it for a while, then said doubtfully, "The runes of the Great Dao of the ancient gods? These are the runes of Great Dao analyzed using classic algebra! Eh, since you have these runes, it means that you have already recalculated using the Computation Canon of Supreme Molecule!"

He tilted his head sideways, thinking. "Was the Celestial Venerable Yu that descended to the lower bound that day constructed by the celestial heavens using runes of classic algebra?"

Qin Mu said, "That's the strongest divine weapon created by the celestial heavens. It has the appearance of Celestial Venerable Yu, but those controlling it are the big shots of the Heaven Alliance of the celestial heavens. They can also build more of these weapons at any time."

Xu Shenghua walked among these jade scrolls. Their numbers were indeed plentiful. Although Qin Mu used the Computational Canon of Supreme Molecule to recalculate many jade scrolls, they were just a drop in the ocean!

In the dream world, there were innumerous Qin Mus calculating the runes of Great Dao on the jade scrolls, using the Computational Canon of Supreme Molecule to restructure them.

Xu Shenghua was shocked by the scale of this operation. However, he maintained a calm and steady composure, as though he wouldn't be alarmed even if the sky fell.

Xu Shenghua browsed through the jade scrolls and said, "The celestial heavens are experimenting with a perfect Celestial Heavens technique. This technique is able to unify all of the Great Dao of the ancient gods. Building the strongest weapon isn't their aim, creating a type of Unity Celestial Heavens technique is."

Qin Mu said, "Their Celestial Heavens technique is built on the foundation of the seven great divine treasures, but the reform of the lower bound has changed the original seven great divine treasures. Hence, they have to stop the reform at all costs, or else their millions of years of effort will be a joke."

Xu Shenghua said, "However, this weapon is too strong. It's impressive that the celestial heavens created such a weapon! It's comparable to the strongest and biggest ancient god's corporeal body, and when combined with a Celestial Heavens Realm technique, there is no other power that will be able to compete with the celestial heavens. Not having the Computational Canon of Supreme Molecule is its only weakness. If the Computational Canon of Supreme Molecule is added…"


He couldn't help but shiver.

If the Computational Canon of Supreme Molecule was added, it would become the strongest corporeal body ever. Together with the Celestial Heavens technique, its abilities would be peerless. Even if the ancient Celestial Emperor was brought back to life, or if Heaven Duke and Earth Count joined forces, they wouldn't be its match by a huge margin.

"Cult Master, are you really going to use the Computational Canon of Supreme Molecule to calculate one more time?"

Xu Shenghua suddenly said, "I feel terrified all of a sudden."

Qin Mu glanced at him and revealed a puzzled expression.

Xu Shenghua said, "If this Computational Canon of Supreme Molecule falls into the hands of the celestial heavens, no one will be able to oppose them anymore. Even if it doesn't fall into their hands and remains in ours, I can't help but be terrified. I worry we may one day become the celestial heavens that we feared."

Qin Mu was stunned, then he laughed. "We can't even take care of ourselves. Why worry about things that are so far out?"

Xu Shenghua was silent for a while before saying, "Cult Master Qin, the Heaven Alliance during the Dragon Han Era was also a main force behind the reform, but they ended up being corrupted. If we manage to achieve power and status in the future, will we end up being corrupted like them? Are you sure that you will remain true to your original aspirations in the face of power and desires? Even if you are able to, can you guarantee that the rest of the people are like you?"

Qin Mu raised his head and thought for a long time. Then, he shook his head, saying, "I can't guarantee that."

Xu Shenghua was quiet.

Qin Mu patted him on the shoulder and laughed. "In the future, if we end up being corrupted, future generations will overthrow us. There's no need to worry too much."

Xu Shenghua argued, "However, the paths, skills, and divine arts that combine classic algebra with Supreme Molecule algebra are already perfect beyond any doubt. Even if we end up corrupted in the future, no one will be able to overthrow us! We will control a power that is the strongest ever, one that will remain the strongest for countless billions of years. It'll be an easy feat to destroy those who rise up against us. We are building an even more hopeless future!"

"It won't be more hopeless than now."

Qin Mu said earnestly and gravely, "Brother Xu, today's celestial heavens believe they have created the strongest divine weapon and have discovered the strongest technique. They believe that no one is able to overthrow them, allowing them to maintain their rule and territories forever. However, we found the Computational Canon of Supreme Molecule and experienced the reform of Eternal Peace. Their strongest divine weapon and technique aren't peerless anymore. We now have a chance to overthrow them. Who knows whether, in the future, people will find a way that will reveal the many flaws that exist in our seemingly perfect divine arts techniques."

He was full of confidence and laughed cheerfully. "From the past to the present, paths, skills, and divine arts have been evolving and improving, with each generation surpassing the one before. What used to be perfect in the past was seen as full of flaws by the later generations. What was strongest in the past might not be the strongest in the future. Isn't this improvement?"

"What we need to do is fulfill our philosophy and ambition. The path of the saint is none other than the everyday use of common people. Gods cannot be high and mighty, controlling the life and death of the people. Rather, they should be used by the people, bringing them benefits."

Qin Mu tightened his fists. "I strongly believe there will be a day where gods will work for people and service them. If they don't do that, there will be reformers overthrowing them! Brother Xu, my Dao friend and bosom friend, if we become corrupted, there will definitely be people overthrowing us!"

Xu Shenghua calmed down and thought it through carefully. He felt that Qin Mu's words made sense. "I don't know why, but when I'm around you, I am full of enthusiasm, filled with hope for the future, and not pessimistic anymore. Cult Master Qin, you are too good at bewitching the hearts of people!"

Qin Mu laughed. "Is it not because we have a similar purpose and interests that we became Dao friends? You may have some confusion occasionally. All I did was help you walk out of that."

Xu Shenghua was stunned. Following which, he laughed loudly.

He was usually expressionless, but today, he unexpectedly roared with laughter. It was a rare sight.

Qin Mu had finished imparting what he had comprehended to him, so he said, "Emperor Yanfeng and Imperial Preceptor are also researching the runes of the ancient gods' Great Dao, and Dao Master Lin Xuan has made more developments in this area. There is a chance that they come forth to find you."

Xu Shenghua nodded slightly.

Qin Mu also narrated the incident of Celestial Venerable Yu opening up the Spirit Embryo Divine Treasure and Galaxy Divine Treasure, talking about how his Spirit Embryo performed the groundbreaking feat of birthing a new soul. Xu Shenghua was impressed but also a little worried.

Qin Mu didn't leave out any details when he spoke about the results of Eternal Peace's reform, the runes of the ancient gods' Great Dao, Celestial Venerable Yu, and his own divine treasures. It felt as though he was settling his affairs in case he passed on.

Xu Shenghua was extremely serious when learning. Even though he was unable to cultivate Qin Mu's method of recreating a soul, and it was thus useless to him, he still learned it wholeheartedly.

Qin Mu wanted to impart Brahma Buddha's Boundless Calamity Sutra to him, but this Emperor's Throne technique was very unique. When Brahma Buddha imparted the technique to him, he didn't teach him any scriptures. All Qin Mu did was take a nap, after which he could execute this technique naturally.

Even if he wanted to, he was unable to impart it to Xu Shenghua.

Qin Mu could only leave it at that. He dispersed the dream state, and the two walked out of the large hall. Outside, only six days had passed.

"Your trip to the celestial heavens will be a dangerous one, and we don't know where the danger will come from. Cult Master, it's hard to predict whether you will survive this trip."

Xu Shenghua said, "I know many people don't understand you. They think you're arrogant, audacious, and act without restraints. However, I understand you. What they see is your glory, so they think that you like to show off and create trouble, but they don't know the grave dangers you have to face, and neither are they aware of the sacrifices you have made. You constantly place your life on the line to fight for Eternal Peace's future."

Qin Mu laughed. "While it's dangerous to go to the celestial heavens, it's not entirely true that we don't have a path of survival. We do have that little hope for a path of survival, which is why I have to go to the celestial heavens. If I don't, Eternal Peace, as well as the other lifeforms, will have no hope at all."

His eyes were clear as he said, "Don't worry about me. If I die, the qi of the Overlord Body will be transferred to your body. Once you have my qi, you won't be beta anymore, you'll be a true Overlord Body."

Xu Shenghua snorted.

Qin Mu continued, "If you fail too, there will be a new Overlord Body who will receive your qi, and so on and so forth. There is bound to be an Overlord Body that is smarter and stronger than us, capable of doing things we are unable to do. It's time to say goodbye, my Dao friend."

A sense of heroism raged and surged within Xu Shenghua's chest. He had the urge to fill the sky with a long howl, emboldening him with fierce passion. However, the education he received since young warned him against easily releasing or being swayed by his emotions.

He suppressed this heroism and stopped walking. He didn't send Qin Mu off, afraid that he might not be able to control himself and end up being like Qin Mu—full of uninhibited heroism, free and easy.

The longer he was with Qin Mu, the easier it was to be influenced by him.

"Husband, he said that he's heading towards the celestial heavens, but does he know how to get there?" Jing Yan walked over and asked.

"Qi Jiuyi knows. He's going to find him."

Xu Shenghua held her by her waist, raising his head to look up at Red Deity's temporary imperial residence. He unhurriedly said, "The weight that Cult Master Qin carries on his shoulders is much heavier than mine. I didn't feel much in the past. However, this time, when he imparted his teachings to me, he told me that if he dies in the celestial heavens, the responsibility for reform will be passed on to me. Only then did I feel the heavy weight of responsibility he carries."

Jing Yan leaned on his shoulder and said gently, "Cult Master Qin has toiled tirelessly, I haven't seen him enjoying a moment of leisure. Compared to him, we are much luckier."

"That's right."

Xu Shenghua sighed ruefully. "However, I don't know how long these blissful days will last. I hope Cult Master Qin can come back alive. Only then can I be at ease."

He paused for a moment and said, "Within the dream world, Cult Master Qin addressed me as Dao friend. When I descended into confusion and doubt, it was he who guided me out of it. However, I can also sense that he has his own confusion and doubt. Yet, I am unable to provide him a path out. He treated me as a Dao friend, but I am unable to help him."

Jing Yan looked at him quietly.

Xu Shenghua gave a bitter smile. "I used to be a guest of High Heavens, fully focused on Dao. However, he stirred my unyielding will, making me determined to surpass him. Hence, I participated in the reform of Eternal Peace. All along, I have been chasing him. If not for his encouragement, I would still be a fake god of the High Heavens. Even if I had some accomplishments, they wouldn't be great. Because of his encouragement, I am where I am today. I am undeserving of a Dao friend like him."

Jing Yan held his hand and smiled. "Husband, who do you think is smarter, Cult Master Qin or you?"

"Me!"

Xu Shenghua said resolutely and without thinking, "Cult Master Qin may be very smart, but when compared to me, he is still a line worse."

Jing Yan burst in laughter. "Since you are smarter than him, what harm is there in being his Dao friend? I feel that you aren't inferior to Cult Master Qin in all aspects. Husband only lacks Cult Master Qin's unrivaled drive and his display of abilities. You don't have his fighting spirit—one that is fearless to fight against the heavens and never concede defeat!"

Xu Shenghua was stunned and hugged her. "The luckiest day of my life wasn't the day I met Cult Master Qin, it was the day I met you."

Red Deity's temporary imperial residence.

Qi Jiuyi waved his hand, dismissing the gods of Southern Sky that were in his temporary imperial residence. He said, "Second Brother already told me that Cult Master Qin wants to go to the celestial heavens and plans to borrow a path from me. It's fine, I shall go with you to the celestial heavens."

Qin Mu raised an eyebrow and was about to speak when Qi Jiuyi laughed coldly. "I'm not concerned about you, I'm concerned about my second brother's safety! We are sworn brothers and have made a Pact of Earth Count. If he dies on this trip to the celestial heavens, I shall die with him!"

He was full of resentment as he recalled how he got drunk in the Imperial Gate Divine Knife and became sworn brothers with the dragon qilin.

Qin Mu took a glance at the dragon qilin and thought, 'This is strange. When did Fatty Dragon become so smart and sensible? In the past, although he was very smart, he was too lazy to scare people. Now he knows how to take the initiative to share my worries and solve my problems. Unless…'

He glanced at Yan'er and saw her feeding the dragon qilin, looking very serious.

Qin Mu smiled and said, "Brother Qi, how do you plan to head towards the celestial heavens?"

Qi Jiuyi said, "For divine arts practitioners, we can directly ask the gods to send us to break through the world barrier. However, for this Yan'er…"

The dragon qilin gave a cough and said, "Third Brother, call her Sister."

The corners of Qi Jiuyi's eyes twitched as he patiently said, "However, this Sister Yan'er is a half-god of the Numinous Sky Realm. If she wants to go to the celestial heavens, there are two ways. We either rely on the various emperors to pierce through the world barrier, or we borrow a boat from Red Deity. Since we aren't strong practitioners of the Emperor's Throne Realm, we can only take the option of borrowing a boat from my master."
