Chapter 1707: How to be a G.o.d
The good news was that no word had come from the Everlasting Battlefield.
Dancing Flame Phoenix Lord or perhaps Nangong Wei had not yet emerged.
And Wu Yu was already at the final and most crucial stage. It was also the most difficult stage. The foundation of an immortal emperor was his Apotheosis Realm, which required extremely comprehensive knowledge about the fundamental essence of a world.
This was one point which Wu Yu was still quite lacking.
After spending 10,000 years on Heavenly Devil Battlefield, Wu Yu’s immortal spirit had already reached the immortal emperor level. All that remained was to bring his corporeal body up to the same level, to help him reach the immortal emperor realm.
“Immortal spirit, heavenly rules, everything that I cultivated up to this point. I have to break it all down, and build it back up as a completely new Apotheosis Realm. This is the key to reaching the eternal immortal emperor realm.”
With this understanding, Wu Yu made a decision.
For him to create his Apotheosis Realm, he would have to draw upon his deepest revelations about the mortal domain.
On his cultivation journey, he had not acc.u.mulated much knowledge of the mortal world, from his time in the Jambu Realm. Besides the Jambu Realm and Ancient Demon Realm, he only knew a little about the other lesser realms that he had been to.
“I have to go travel.”
Wu Yu identified this issue, and made preparations to go to other mortal worlds to build a proper foundation for his own Apotheosis Realm.
He bid Luo Pin and the others abide at Mettle Sky, while he himself went out to roam.
Luo Pin dearly wanted to go with him, but Wu Yu knew that her own cultivation should take priority. If they were together, her cultivation speed would slow, and that would only draw the distance between them further.
Luo Pin herself did not want such a situation. Therefore, she cast aside her longing with great difficulty, and obediently remained at Mettle Sky.
This was the safest place, free of any threats.
Wu Yu headed to the mortal realm. His first stop was Stellar Realm.
This world had once been his springboard to the sky palaces. Here at Stellar Realm, they cultivated based on the power of the stars. Therefore, the immortal emperor owner of this lesser realm must have some astral-based powers.
Wu Yu still recalled that there had been a pair of sisters, who had caused him all sorts of troubles when he had pa.s.sed through.
They were long gone now, and even their original sects were now part of other sects.
Time flew, and it was an inexorable killer for lesser realm mortals.
Even the greatest sects of Stellar Realm were unable to endure for tens of thousands of years.
Wu Yu was afraid to return to the Jambu Realm now.
Would the rich world of the Jambu Realm be just as he remembered it?
It was the place that had sheltered him. From the Dong Sheng Divine Continent to the rest of the Jambu Realm, his path of progress was etched all over it. But perhaps those traces were long gone……
After leaving Stellar Realm, Wu Yu still returned to Jambu Realm.
From what he saw and heard on Stellar Realm, he was mentally prepared for the complete change that he might find at Jambu Realm.
Perhaps in the sky palaces, to the immortal emperors and even immortals, 10,000 years was nothing. In seclusion, it would pa.s.s in a flash. The sky palaces, h.e.l.ls, and Heavenly Domain as a whole would not change much.
When they went out to play, it was always the same few people. At banquets, the same familiar faces. Tens of thousands of years, hundreds of thousands of years, millions of years even – the faces did not change. Perhaps the odd new face here and there, but even then there was nothing much to excite.
But in the mortal domain, even a mere 1000 years brought vicissitudes beyond imagining.
Where were the Shushan Immortal Sect, the Yan Huang Imperial City?
Even the Clear Sky of Shushan had changed drastically. It was no longer held by the Shushan Immortal Sect. In its place was the Three Grand Sects, a new coalition of power between the three greatest sects of the Dong Sheng Divine Continent.
Yan Huang Imperial City had also vanished from the Dong Sheng Divine Continent. If even the Yan Huang Ancient Country had been ground down by the millstone of history, Yan Huang Imperial City went without saying.
There was one thing that soothed Wu Yu’s heart. Luo Pin’s birthplace, where the mystical dragon tribe dwelled, had not changed a bit even after all this time.
The enemies that Wu Yu had were all history now, buried deep in the ground of the Jambu Realm.
“Seems like after the Yan Huang Ancient Emperor ceased to be, the Yan Huang Ancient Country fell as well. The Jambu Realm is so much more diverse now……”
Wu Yu traveled the Jambu Realm, seeing that there were thousands of nations now. Still, the strong ruled, the weak joined forces, and the dynamic of strong preying on weak had not changed.
“Cultivation is plunder.”
Those words appeared again in Wu Yu’s mind. It was exactly those words which had helped him come so far from his birth station as a mortal.
Wu Yu paused at the Jambu Realm, watching it change as a spectator.
1 year, 2 years……
10 years, 100 years……
For Wu Yu, it was a brief as nodding off, but here at the Jambu Realm, nations had fallen, sects had gone empty, new ones had risen.
Promising young talents bloomed, a new generation of vitality laid out before Wu Yu.
Although the low cultivation level in the mortal domain meant that cultivators perished quickly, but their stories lingered, and there were always those that would rise above, such as Wu Yu who had risen from the humble Dong Sheng Divine Continent……
The bits and pieces of the Jambu Realm trickled into Wu Yu’s mind as knowledge.
Throughout the entire process, he was still digesting the corpse of the ancestor Chaos Sword Demon Emperor. There was also precious knowledge about the Apotheosis Realm which enhanced Wu Yu’s understanding about the realm.
As he integrated all of Chaos Sword Demon Emperor’s knowledge into his own, about 1000 years had pa.s.sed. Triggered by his new insights about the mortal realm, his body finally began to change.
This was a life-changing transformation. For any immortal, succeeding in this step meant eternal life!
At Heavenly Devil Battlefield, Wu Yu’s immortal spirit had already created an intangible world which existed within his body.
His nine heavenly rule powers were held in this intangible world, and he could draw on them time and again, defeating strong opponents like Li Tianji and Yang Qiang.
But at this moment, it underwent a metamorphosis for the first time since he had emerged from Heavenly Devil Battlefield.
The core power of the nine heavenly rule powers shattered, and Wu Yu could no longer feel their existence, nor use their power. And then the bits started to fuse with his immortal spirit and flesh.
Within his body, all of the immortal power began to recombobulate, into an eternal Apotheosis Realm.
Finally, he had succeeded!
Wu Yu opened his eyes. He could feel that he was irrevocably different. He saw the world in a whole new light, radically different from before. Most keenly, he could feel that his perception of time had changed.
This was because by reaching the eternal immortal emperor realm, he now had eternal life, and that altered his perspective of time significantly.
“This is my Apotheosis Realm……”
Wu Yu looked at the world within him. It was an empty world for now, an empty s.p.a.ce with nothing inside, no life, no mortals. All was empty.
Copying other mortal worlds, he used his apotheosis immortal energy to create a sun, moon, oceans, and land. These fundamental elements soon gave rise to some semblance of a wild world.
Life would not appear so quickly.
But the apotheosis immortal energy that Wu Yu had used to create these elements had fulfilled the basic conditions for life and creation.
“This Apotheosis Realm. What should be its name?”
Wu Yu pondered it a little. Jambu Realm, Stellar Realm, all of them were names given by their creators, and those names had remained till now.
“Great Sage’s Apotheosis Realm?”
Wu Yu thought of this name. It was the Great Sage, Heaven’s Equal’s legacy that had helped him come so far.
But then he shook his head. “Better call it the Devouring Apotheosis Realm instead.”
The Great Sage Apotheosis Realm belonged to the Great Sage, Heaven’s Equal.
Perhaps that was the name of the Apotheosis Realm within the Great Sage, Heaven’s Equal. And Wu Yu was Wu Yu, even if he had donned the mantle of the Great Sage, Heaven’s Equal. There was no need to follow him in name.
Therefore, besides the Great Sage, Heaven’s Equal, the next greatest impact on his life had been the Heaven Devouring t.i.tanic Beast.
Devouring Apotheosis Realm was born!
