On the World Crossing Gold Ship, in the last golden hall, Qin Mu stretched out his palm to gently touch the Dao flower.
The Dao Flower spun and cut his finger.
"The Dao Flower is still here, the Dao Flower is still here…"
Qin Mu muttered to himself as though he couldn't feel any pain. "You told me, what do you mean when we meet again in Hall of Chaos? You should still be alive, right? You might still be alive…"
The sword blade in the Dao Flower spun and gave off a ringing sound as though it was responding to him.
Qin Fengqing and Tai shi entered the golden hall and their gazes landed on the Dao Flower. Tai Shi was puzzled. "This is Founding Emperor's Dao Flower?"
Qin Mu nodded and said, "I still don't understand what exactly is going on. Why can Founding Emperor's Dao Flower be preserved under the attack of the four young masters of Miluo Palace? That strike from the four young masters of Miluo Palace was targeted at Celestial Venerable Ling. The power of that strike could even completely obliterate Ling. The power of that zither string was enough to completely destroy Founding Emperor and obliterate everything. However, this Dao Flower was preserved…"
He muttered to himself, "There should be a power that I didn't sense that was protecting Founding Emperor's Dao Flower, giving him a chance of survival. This person has remarkable abilities… Hall of Chaos, Hall of Chaos… What is this place?"
He was at a loss.
Qin Fengqing quickly circled around the hall, but he didn't find Founding Emperor's' ghost. He was astonished and said in a daze, "Brother, I clearly saw the ghost of our ancestor. Strange, if he isn't here, where is he?"
"Are you sure it's him?" Qin Mu asked.
"It must be him!"
Qin Fengqing said, "I definitely won't mistake him! That kind of temperament, that kind of charm, and that kind of sword path, it's definitely him!"
Taishi hesitated for a moment and said, "His appearance is also him, but we can't touch him. We can only pass through his body…"
Qin Mu muttered to himself and paced back and forth. He muttered, "Why can't we touch him? Could it be him in his unchanging state?"
He recalled Celestial Venerable Ling's encounter.
Back then, he saved Celestial Venerable Ling and left behind the Dao markings of the Miluo Palace. He, Founding Emperor, and the rest stayed in the Great Overarching Consciousness Heaven to fight with the Grand Emperor. Celestial Venerable Ling cast a spell and sent them to forty thousand years later, while he stayed forty thousand years ago.
At that time, there were two Celestial Venerables, Celestial Venerable Ling who was in the real world and Celestial Venerable Ling who was trapped in the unchanging divine art of the Celestial River.
These two Celestial Venerables Ling were in a state of non-observation.
If someone's gaze landed on Celestial Venerable Ling, she would collapse, and Celestial Venerable Ling, who was trapped in the unchanging divine art of the Celestial River, would become the only reality.
This was the uniqueness of matter being observed.
Celestial Venerable Ling had two possibilities. One was to live in the real world, and the other was to die and revive in the celestial river.
Only Celestial Venerable Ling herself could break through this state. At that time, she had buried herself in studying the Dao markings of the Miluo Palace, waiting for the arrival of Qin Mu's era.
She had only solved it once when she met Founding Emperor.
Thus, Celestial Venerable Ling almost never appeared during the forty thousand years.
'Founding Emperor might also be in this state.'
Qin Mu paced back and forth as he pondered. "The Founding Emperor you saw should be the Founding Emperor of the future that you saw by accident. There was an existence that was so powerful that it was inconceivable. He used a supreme divine art to send Fourth Young Master to the future when his divine art burst forth. Furthermore, Founding Emperor was sent to an object that could penetrate the future by that inconceivable existence. That object was the World Crossing Golden Ship!"
His eyes gradually lit up, and his footsteps gradually became faster. His speed of speech also became faster as he clapped his hands. "This is boarding a ghost ship… Bah! It's a golden ship! Those who board the golden ship will see a ghost and even feel that the ghost is talking to them! This isn't a real ghost, but Founding Emperor was sent to the golden ship by that inconceivable existence!"
He said excitedly, "This golden ship was forged by the master of Miluo Palace, and the golden ship itself is equivalent to an everlasting substance! It can pass through the great calamities of the destruction of the universe! Therefore, under the state of unchanging substance, it can appear in the past! Granny Si and the rest met people from the future on the ship and felt that it was the master of Miluo Palace. They even said that the master of Miluo Palace guided them in their cultivation! That wasn't the master of Miluo Palace, but Founding Emperor!"
The more he spoke, the more excited he became. "Founding Emperor in his future state! Because he is in a different time and space from us, we are like the conversation I had with Celestial Venerable Yun on the celestial river back then. We can only see each other vaguely! Founding Emperor is the same!"
He became even more excited and suddenly released his vital qi to visualize the runes. In the blink of an eye, countless algebra runes appeared and crackled unpredictably!
Qin Fengqing looked at his younger brother, who was like a maniac, changing all kinds of strange runes continuously and couldn't help being stunned.
These runes transformed, making him dizzy. After looking at them for a moment, Qin Fengqing almost vomited and hurriedly shifted his gaze away.
"Little fatty, what is little brother doing?" he asked curiously.
Taishi couldn't take his eyes off it and was very excited. He stared at the runes that Qin Mu's vital qi had transformed into and said without raising his head, "He's calculating! It's truly endlessly marvelous! There's even such an algorithm… Good!"
Qin Fengqing was at a loss. He asked humbly, "What is he calculating?"
"Calculate if my guess is feasible!"
Taishi became even more excited. It was obvious that he understood Qin Mu's calculations, and his eyes moved quickly. He clapped his hands and exclaimed in admiration, "This is great! So it's this kind of solution… Don't you know it? Aren't you brothers? I heard you guys used the same brain, but your brain doesn't seem to work…"
Qin Fengqing's face was black as he punched his right eye.
Taishi's eyes were swollen into slits as he muttered, "As expected of brothers…"
Qin Mu used everything he had learned and calculated furiously. He even continuously developed new algorithms during the process of calculation. He was originally one of the grandmasters with the highest algebra in the world. He might be inferior to Lin Xuan, but he wasn't far off.
Eternal Peace's current algebra had already been deduced to an extremely high realm by Eternal Peace's Dao Sect. Every time Qin Mu returned, he would go to Eternal Peace's Dao Sect to seek knowledge.
Dao Master Lin Xuan could be said to be at the forefront of algebra, but Qin Mu basically knew everything he knew.
Furthermore, Celestial Venerable Ling had also created her own algebra system by analyzing the Dao markings of the Miluo Palace. When Qin Mu had learned the Dao markings of the Miluo Palace from her, he had also learned her algebra system along the way, in case Celestial Venerable Ling found him too stupid to teach him.
Qin Mu tried to fuse Eternal Peace's algebra system with Celestial Venerable Ling's algebra system to create even more algorithms. After a dozen days, the entire hall could no longer store so many algebra runes.
Qin Mu went outside and continued to calculate frantically.
After another dozen days, Qin Fengqing raised his head to take a look and saw that the algebra runes that Qin Mu had used his vital qi to evolve and visualize had already covered the sky of the golden ship and formed a vast sky screen. There was no end in sight!
At this moment, Taishi also couldn't understand Qin Mu's calculations. The little fatty sat on the ground like a round egg with a head piled on top of it. He propped his chin up with his hands and looked at an equation in a daze.
Not long later, he suddenly jumped up like a huge ball against a small ball and jumped into the air. He said joyfully, "I understand!"
However, after landing, he frowned and muttered to Qin Fengqing, "I seem to have calculated wrongly…"
Qin Mu was still calculating frantically, but as time passed, the speed at which he was seeking answers became slower. His expression was grim, and beads of sweat appeared on his forehead.
Sweat poured down like a spring and soon drenched his clothes.
Qin Fengqing paced around anxiously and muttered, "Have you calculated it? Have you calculated it… We're at Southern Heaven!"
He hurriedly went to the bow of the ship and bent down to take a look. He saw the extraordinary main land of South Heaven and the magnificent stars of the All-heaven Starfield below the golden ship.
The World Crossing Golden Ship sailed through the void of Southern Heaven like a ghost, sliding past silently.
Qin Fengqing had two horns on his head as he looked down.
His appearance was exactly the same as that of Qin Mu when he was young. It was as if he was imprinted from the same mold. His face had the tender air unique to Qin Mu when he was young.
The only difference was the two horns on his head. They were the horns of Earth Count.
Qin Fengqing kept looking around, and his heart suddenly trembled. He saw a heaven suddenly twisting and transforming into a huge wheel.
This kind of distortion was incomparably terrifying. It used boundless magic power to distort the space of the entire heavens. Even the star fields of the heavens were distorted into rings!
The All-heaven Star Domain contained a galaxy, and countless suns and planets were twisted into a ring.
In this world, there were only a few people who had such powerful magic power!
Other than Celestial Emperor Hao, Grand Primordium, Celestial Venerable Yun, and the Ruins of End Goddess who had achieved the Dao, only Ancestral God King and Celestial Venerable Huo, who controlled Heaven Duke's corporeal body, could do it!
"I see Celestial Venerable Huo!"
Qin Fengqing became anxious and didn't dare to look at Celestial Venerable Huo directly to prevent him from noticing. He said in a low voice, "Has little brother not calculated it yet? How stupid!"
Mingdu Heavenly Gate appeared, and the sea poured out from it. Son of Heaven Yin sat on the doorstep and was laughing at Celestial Venerable Huo when he was blown up by Celestial Venerable Huo.
'That's Little Yinzi? Even though Celestial Venerable Huo's divine art is strong, I don't think I can kill him.'
When Qin Fengqing was in the Land of the Great Void, he had clashed with Son of Heaven Yin more than once. At first, their abilities were similar, but after Qin Fengqing swallowed the primordial spirits of the gods and devils that had died in the celestial heavens, his abilities gradually surpassed Son of Heaven Yin's. However, Son of Heaven Yin had many methods, especially his reincarnation divine art which was abnormally strange. He could escape death every time.
Therefore, Qin Fengqing knew Son of Heaven Yin's methods very well.
In the reincarnation gate, Son of Heaven Yin revived once again, and he was abnormally excited. He said to Celestial Venerable Huo, "I know you always look down on me. How could a dignified Celestial Venerable Huo look down on a despicable person like me? However, you don't know that your weakness has long been controlled by me!"
He stood in the reincarnation gate and was in high spirits. "Celestial Venerable Huo, I can kill you effortlessly!"
Qin Fengqing clenched his fists and was about to study Son of Heaven Yin's Dao of Reincarnation when a voice suddenly came from beside his ear. "Son of Heaven Yin is going to die. Emperor Hao Tian can't tolerate Great Sun Sovereign, so how can he tolerate Son of Heaven Yin who knows more of his unspeakable secrets?"
Qin Fengqing hurriedly turned his head and saw Qin Mu behind him.
He immediately looked behind Qin Mu and asked quickly, "Little brother, you calculated it?"
He only saw runes that covered the sky and covered the earth. They were all kinds of algebra, but he couldn't understand them. He also didn't know if Qin Mu had calculated the outcome.
Now, only Taishi was still sitting there with his hands on his chin, looking at an algorithm without interest.
Qin Mu was slightly tired and nodded his head. "I've calculated it. It's feasible. I've also calculated which year Founding Emperor will be in the future."
With a gentle push, a rune flew over.
The runes changed into the words "42".
"Forty-two years later."
Qin Mu revealed a smile and looked slightly haggard. "He will appear on this World Crossing Golden Ship."
On the World Crossing Gold Ship, in the last golden hall, Qin Mu stretched out his palm to gently touch the Dao flower.
