Yun Jianli and Yun Chuxiu quietly sized up Qin Mu. He had used his third eye to observe Yun Jianli for a long time, yet nothing had happened.
Yan'er and the dragon qilin were also weirded out. Qin Mu had been silent and still for a long time. It was as if time has stopped.
What they didn't know was that Qin Mu was comprehending the techniques that Shu Jun had imparted to him and was attempting to borrow the Grand Primordium Origin Stone to cultivate his consciousness.
The trick the master of creation used to train his consciousness was, in today's language, named Supreme Palace Enclosure Higher Knowledge. It made use of the Grand Primordium Origin Stone to visualize the Supreme Palace Enclosure.
Originally, Qin Mu thought that the techniques used by the masters of creation were simple and boorish. However, unexpectedly, the Supreme Palace Enclosure Higher Knowledge was extremely complex.
Such consciousness techniques were cultivated by meditating about the forms of the ancient gods of the constellations and having one's consciousness create the 20 constellations within the Grand Primordium Origin Stone. Add to that the 78 ancient star sovereigns, and one would form the Supreme Palace Enclosure, which lit up the space of the Grand Primordium Origin Stone.
As long as one cultivated according to this method, one could greatly strengthen their consciousness.
But Qin Mu gently comprehended it and felt that the Supreme Palace Enclosure Higher Knowledge could only light up one part of the Grand Primordium Origin Stone and that it was likely only one part of the technique, not the complete one.
Obviously, Shu Jun hid some parts of the technique from him and didn't impart the entirety of the cultivation technique.
"The techniques that we use to cultivate our consciousnesses might not be suited for the bunch of you. After all, our race is different."
Shu Jun remarked, "Additionally, your consciousness is weak. Currently, you still cannot fully understand this youth's bloodline curse and thus need to cultivate for a period of time."
Qin Mu, filled with confidence, immediately utilized the Supreme Palace Enclosure Higher Knowledge, proclaiming, "I'm an Overlord Body, I can definitely cultivate it."
Shu Jun was shocked and exclaimed, "Overlord Body? What race does it belong to?"
Refusing to answer, Qin Mu saw the giant ball of flesh roll on the Grand Primordium Origin Stone's sacrificial altar. The ball soon split in two and revealed a giant eye, which surveyed its surroundings.
Within the space engulfed with the red light of the Grand Primordium Origin Stone, one constellation after another suddenly rose, lighting up the area and forming the 20 constellations.
'This youngling's comprehension isn't bad, but it's easy to light up the Supreme Palace Enclosure's 20 Constellation. Visualizing the 78 gods will be difficult since I haven't imparted the visualization map to him…'
The giant eyeball, which had just arrived, suddenly and violently jumped. Soon, the stars grew brighter and brighter as an immense amount of vital qi flooded into the room and mixed with Qin Mu's consciousness.
'This isn't the Supreme Palace Enclosure Higher Knowledge that I imparted to him! This guy modified the method I imparted to him…'
He saw Qin Mu's vital qi fuse with his consciousness to form all sorts of runes!
The big eyeball was furious and almost jumped before it coldly laughed. 'Little brat, if you tamper with my race's technique and mess up, you won't even know how you died!'
At this moment, within the space of the Grand Primordium Origin Stone, an image of an ancient star god rose. That image belonged to Ancient God Si Lu, who resided in the Three Sages Constellation!
The big eyeball received a great shock and instantly understood what Qin Mu was doing. Qin Mu was using the knowledge of his era to make up for the missing parts in the Supreme Palace Enclosure Higher Knowledge.
The Supreme Palace Enclosure Higher Knowledge was only used to visualize the ancient gods. Meanwhile, Qin Mu's harvesting of vital qi to mix with the consciousness wasn't meant to visualize the ancient gods, it was meant to restructure the path to them via classic algebra and Supreme Molecule algebra!
Although the Supreme Palace Enclosure Higher Knowledge was complex, the visualization map of the ancient gods was mere simple visualization after all. Therefore, it paled in comparison to Qin Mu's runes of the Great Dao of the ancient gods.
After all, the runes of the Great Dao of the ancient gods were the amalgamation of a million years of research. It even included algebra on rebirth like Qin Mu's Computational Canon of Supreme Molecule.
As the structures of the 78 star gods began to form, Qin Mu instantly felt that his consciousness began to uncontrollably coalesce and speed up.
'If I add the Three Primordial Spirit Undying God Consciousness, will the cultivation speed be faster?'
As soon as he thought about that, he did exactly that. He immediately utilized the Three Primordial Spirit Undying God Consciousness. Shu Jun immediately saw the sky and Supreme Palace Enclosure with three layers of force. All sorts of forms of the ancient gods also tripled!
The three layers of the Supreme Palace Enclosure's force began to stack, soon followed by each of the ancient gods.
'This little brat…'
That big circular eyeball stared at him and thought, 'After his modification of the Supreme Palace Enclosure Higher Knowledge, it became just as good as a complete Three Enclosure Higher Knowledge. The Three Higher Knowledge includes the Supreme Palace Enclosure Higher Knowledge, the Purple Forbidden Enclosure Higher Knowledge, and the Heavenly Market Enclosure Higher Knowledge, which can construct a complete technique when combined. Considering how he did so using just the Supreme Palace Enclosure Higher Knowledge, could he be Grand Emperor Ju Yushi?'
Qin Mu didn't know what to think. After a short while, he felt that he had achieved a startling leap in his consciousness.
"This prehistoric technique is truly extraordinary," he praised uncontrollably.
Suddenly, the eye within the heart of his brows twitched as its gaze moved from Yun Jianli onto Yun Chuxiu.
Yun Chuxiu laughed sweetly at him, and Qin Mu replied with a smile. He used his third eye to observe Yun Chuxiu, but he failed to observe anything fishy about her.
She was like an extremely pure lady that had youthful energy overflowing from her, engulfing her. In addition, her soul, primordial spirit, divine treasures, consciousness, and vital qi were all faultless!
Her primordial spirit was very active, as if she was a young lady.
"Shu Jun, could you find any problems with this lady?" Qin Mu asked, his consciousness pulsing.
On the sacrificial altar of the Grand Primordium Origin Stone, the big eyeball suddenly shrunk and became a giant ball of flesh. From within it, Shu Jun's voice emerged. "I want you to continuously provide me with blood and consciousness for the next three months. This will allow me to grow a head! After that, I will tell you whether there's a problem with this lady."
"Oh, then forget it," Qin Mu said.
Shu Jun became furious, and the ball of flesh almost jumped.
Qin Mu stared deep into Yun Chuxiu's eyes, though he soon retracted his stare as his third eye slowly shut itself. He kept to himself for a moment, then said to Yun Jianli, "There's a curse on your bloodline which is passed from generation to generation. Perhaps there's a way to cure it, but I have never seen such a serious curse. It will require a lot of time to cure."
"A bloodline curse? And Celestial Venerable has a way to cure it?"
Yun Jianli was both shocked and surprised. Due to his excessive excitement, his consciousness went into disorder, and he almost lost control of his vital qi. It was only prevented by the quick consumption of several spirit pills.
It was only after Yun Jianli directed the power of the pills that his disorderly consciousness calmed down. He then apologized, saying, "Sorry for the loss of composure, Celestial Venerable, I hope you can understand. If you don't mind, you can stay at my house. After all, it's a residence of a Celestial Venerable. No one dares to touch the Yun residence without careful thought."
He laughed bitterly. "Although the abilities of the Yun family's male heir aren't much, the wife he marries is always extremely powerful. To be honest, my wife is a powerful figure with much greater capabilities. My grandmother and great grandmother are also powerful people, it's just that they spoiled me a little bit too much."
Qin Mu laughed. "Well, I'm a Celestial Venerable after all. If people want to kill me, I doubt your residence would be able to protect me. If they dare to kill a Celestial Venerable, why would they care about the Yun family?"
Yun Jianli frowned slightly and said to Yun Chuxiu, "Sister, I will stay here for a couple of days. You will return to the Yun residence first and report to my grandmother and great grandmother that I'm fine."
Yun Chuxiu acknowledged it as she rose with a laugh. "I too would like to stay here and consult Celestial Venerable on some difficult problems. If I return later, you won't chase me out, will you?"
Qin Mu shook his head and replied, "No. There are many houses here, so both of you can stay here to your heart's content."
Yun Chuxiu slowly withdrew from the Slow Winding Pavilion.
Qin Mu rose and laughed, saying, "I'll bring you to find a place to stay."
Yun Jianli followed him, and both of them exited the Slow Winding Pavilion. Qi Jiuyi, Yan'er, and the dragon qilin followed them.
The beauty of the Jade Pool was impeccable, and today, it was even more splendid than when Qin Mu was there in the past. As Qin Mu strolled around the pool, admiring the scenery, he suddenly asked, "Brother Yun, how did you get to know Yun Chuxiu?"
Yun Jianli laughed. "Does Celestial Venerable have intentions towards her?"
Qin Mu laughed heartily and replied, "She's a sweet, fair, and graceful lady that would be a good mate. Although I'm about to die, I feel that I can still find a good mate for one last time."
Yun Jianli's expression grew grave before he admitted, "To be honest, Celestial Venerable, I don't know her origins."
Qin Mu was slightly startled. "She's your sworn sister, yet you don't know her origins?"
Yun Jianli continued, "I have never heard of her before. One day, she just suddenly appeared in the celestial heavens and shook the entire place. There were countless suitors after her, yet she grew close to me with an ambiguous intent, which almost got me killed. Not long ago, I was challenged countless times by her suitors! Luckily, I was capable enough to live through all of it, which made me more vigilant."
Qin Mu laughed. "Brother Yun, why are you vigilant?"
"I'm a person that's about to die, while she's such a beautiful lady with countless suitors, which even includes a god king in the heavens above. Despite that, she chooses to accompany a dying person like me."
Indifferently, Yun Jianli said, "I'm not as narcissistic as Qi Jiuyi, I know that she has a motive for approaching me. Thus, I figured why not become sworn siblings with her and put her by my side to observe what she has planned."
Qi Jiuyi was still in a muddleheaded state and hadn't recovered from Yun Chuxiu's beauty. He smiled and blurted out, "What should our child's name be?"
Qin Mu glanced at him in confusion, not knowing what sort of daydream Qi Jiuyi was having.
"Has Brother Yun discovered the motive of Yun Chuxiu?" Qin Mu inquired.
Yun Jianli smiled gently. "Yes, I have. Her motive is you, Celestial Venerable Mu."
Qin Mu was stunned and couldn't stop himself from smiling. "Yun Chuxiu's motive is me? How could that be possible? Brother Yun, you must be joking!"
Yun Jianli replied firmly, "Celestial Venerable Mu has returned to the celestial heavens, and I, as the only male heir of the Yun family, am bound to meet you due to my ancestor's command. That being the case, I'm the best way to get to know you. Besides…"
He stopped, and Qin Mu stopped too before asking, "Besides what?"
"Besides, as one of the strongest Divine Bridge Realm practitioners of the celestial heavens, should I become jealous due to her and slay you, it would be greatly detrimental to the Yun family."
Yun Jianli laughed. "If I, the only adult male within the Yun family, died at the hands of Celestial Venerable Mu, that would be interesting. The grandmother and great grandmother of the Yun family would slay you in fury. In that scenario, you would be dead, and the Yun family would cease to exist, killing two birds with one stone."
Qin Mu laughed. "You'll become jealous?"
Yun Jianli panted slightly, shook his head, and replied, "No. I'm already indifferent to life and death, so why would I be provoked by her? I'm just worried that you will be provoked by her."
Qin Mu replied, "Well, that's not certain. Although she's pretty, she isn't the prettiest in my heart."
Yun Jianli asked curiously, "Then, what do you, Celestial Venerable Mu, believe to constitute the prettiest lady?"
Without hesitation, Qin Mu answered, "Big breasts, a perky butt, with muscles sprinkled all over the body, on top of it being well-built."
Yun Jianli was utterly amazed.
After a long while, he calmed himself down and jokingly said, "Celestial Venerable Mu's idea of a perfect lady is truly unique. To be honest, I sent Yun Chuxiu away for another reason. That reason being the other command left behind by our ancestor."
Qin Mu solemnly asked, "What were the last words of Celestial Venerable Yun?"
Yun Jianli replied, "Our ancestor appeared many times using Celestial Venerable Mu's appearance, assuming the appearance during the Dragon Han Era. Then, some people said that Celestial Venerable Mu had grown weaker, believing that our ancestor was no match for Celestial Venerable Mu and saying that he was a haughty person."
He didn't continue on.
Qin Mu replied, "Celestial Venerable Yun wasn't weaker than me."
"Yet the world thinks otherwise."
Yun Jianli sighed and continued, "Before our ancestor left, his last words were, firstly, to kowtow and plead guilty to the incident where he assumed Celestial Venerable Mu's identity. Secondly, the ancestor also wanted to know if his techniques could triumph against that of Celestial Venerable Mu's. In his last words, he commanded that his descendants show off his techniques to Celestial Venerable Mu should they meet him."
Qin Mu smiled. "Yet, your body is unwell, can you perform this task?"
Yun Jianli smiled confidently. "Celestial Venerable Mu's body is also unwell. In fact, I was worried that you couldn't make it instead."
Qin Mu laughed heartily. "If it was in front of outsiders, my body certainly couldn't make it. However, if it's you, my body is in good condition. What is the name of Celestial Venerable Yun's technique?"
Yun Jianli leaned on the railing and looked at the Jade Sea. The sickly master chanted loudly, "The thousand peaks rise into the sky. When the road ends, the divine bridge raises. The stars close in on the blue skies above, and beneath it, the mortal world stretches vastly!"
"When the road ends, the divine bridge raises?"
Qin Mu understood what this sentence meant and finally understood why Celestial Venerable Yun opened the Divine Bridge Divine Treasure.
'During that time, after Celestial Venerable You opened the Life and Death Divine Treasure, divine arts practitioners had no way out. Where there was no road, Celestial Venerable Yun raised a Divine Bridge Divine Treasure. It was this treasure that inspired Celestial Venerable Yu, and it was then that Celestial Venerable Yu opened the celestial palace at the end of the divine bridge.'
He clapped his hands and praised, "When the road ends, the divine bridge raises. Nice! How nice! Unfortunately, it's outdated."
Yun Jianli and Yun Chuxiu quietly sized up Qin Mu. He had used his third eye to observe Yun Jianli for a long time, yet nothing had happened.
