Astral Pet Store - Chapter 1394 - Condensing a Dao Heart (1)
“Elder, there are other universes beyond the world of gods. Is there a way to locate them?” Su Ping asked Elder Chan.
“They’re just inferior worlds.” Elder Chan chuckled. “I heard that, back in the early stage of chaos, the most primitive power exploded and splashed all over, which turned into countless universes. That is just a legend without anything to prove it; however, it is certain that the world of gods is the biggest and most powerful universe, one that has lasted since the age of chaos.
“If experts are born in the inferior worlds beyond the world of gods, they may choose to migrate to our world. Every high-ranked clan has a summoning channel; it’s a way to attract geniuses of the inferior worlds.
“After all, if those geniuses can stand out even in the barren, inferior worlds, their performance would surely be better in our world.”
Su Ping felt dazed for a moment, then suddenly remembered the ascension step in the age of deities.
Was it the same thing?
“That’s right. The gods leave openings and channels outside our world. As you know, you would need God Emperor power to tear open the barrier of this world.”
Elder Chan continued, “It’s impossible for the people of those inferior places to rise and reach that height; however, they only have to become God Kings so they can tear openings in their own worlds and go beyond. At the moment they can’t enter the world of gods even if they find it; they can only wait to die in the void or return.

“In order for those geniuses to enter our world, the clans have left easily-noticeable ‘openings’ on the barrier to enter this world. They are not real openings, though; those parts of the barrier have been thinned out so that even God Kings can enter.
“Of course, such an arrangement can be very dangerous; it’s possible for the power of chaos from the void to seep in. The barrier of our world is a protection for us. So, there are God Emperors defending every summoning channel where the barrier has been weakened.”
Feeling dazed, Su Ping asked in confusion, “The world of gods is boundless. God Kings can’t stay for long in the void… What if they can’t find it?”
“If they can’t, they’re just not meant for it,” Elder Chan smiled and said, “You’ve seen the Original Dao; you should know that luck is part of your strength. You must try to concentrate the luck in the environment onto yourself. There’s no such thing as coincidence in this world; everything has been prearranged.”
As he talked, his eyes seemed to change a little bit; he looked at Su Ping thoughtfully.
However, the change was quite brief; like an illusion.
Su Ping was stunned. He felt that the guy was implying something. However, the two of them were already on very close terms. Can’t he just speak openly?
Or maybe, was it just imagining things?
“Can they just rely on luck? Is there no way to locate the world of gods precisely?” Su Ping asked again.
“Yes, there is. However, they are among the forbidden skills of every clan in the world of gods!” Elder Chan became solemn. “Their forbidden status is not because they’re difficult, but because they would bring disaster to the world of gods!
“There are more dangers besides the chaotic laws in the land of nothingness. Unknown dangers might be attracted besides the geniuses of inferior worlds if you leave obvious signs. So, they are strictly forbidden. All Ancestral Gods are supervising this matter together. Whichever clan uses it will be severely punished!” said Elder Chan seriously.
Su Ping could not help but say, “The unknown dangers are the Heavens! Didn’t you ask for evidence? That is the evidence!”
Elder Chan gave him a slight frown. “It’s a kind of ferocious beast, not the Heavens you mentioned.”
“A ferocious beast?”
Stunned for a moment, Su Ping shook his head. “The Heavens look hideous. They are the ferocious beasts you mentioned.”
Elder Chan felt rather helpless. “I’ve seen the Heavens; I certainly know what I’m talking about. Why are you so vigilant about them? I can feel the fear in you… Have you seen the Heavens recently?”
Su Ping was unable to acknowledge the fact. If he did, he would have to confess his background. Elder Chan could easily detect any attempt at lying, and would surely notice if he lied that he had seen them somewhere in the world of gods.
After a long silence, Su Ping said goodbye to Elder Chan and went to the library.
Su Ping knew that regardless of his Dao Child status, he was still too low when it came to security issues like the Heavens and the world of gods.
Getting to the bottom of it, he was too insignificant to be heard.
Even if he became a God Emperor, it would still be impossible for him to unite all gods.
God Emperors were stronger, but they couldn’t overcome the prejudice and hostility among clans.
He had to become an Ancestral God if he wanted to sway a clan.
If everybody else was at his mercy, he could easily invite them for a negotiation.
If I leave signs, they will indeed bring trouble to the world of gods…
Su Ping showed a troubled expression. That was not what he wanted to see; he could not drag that world into the swamp for the sole purpose of finding it. He wanted to make alliances with gods, but their cooperation had to be kept secret; the Heavens would probably find them earlier than he did. Then, all of his possible allies would be destroyed, one by one.
If only I could leave marks invisible to the Heavens but visible to me. Technology should be helpful for this. Unfortunately, there’s no technology supporting the transmission of signals in the land of nothingness just yet.
