Chapter 1580 – Triworld Theory
Once they evolved into seven-star divine beasts, Tianming’s beasts had considerably transformed. Meow Meow still looked like the usual, cute cat in its normal form. However, when it turned into the lion-cougar hybrid of a Regal Chaosfiend, its bagua-shaped wings were surrounded by many chaos lightning bolts, making it even more fitting for the name of Genesis Chaos Thunderfiend. The manna it had absorbed was called the Triworld Bolt, which looked like three gigantic lightning beasts. In fact, they were shaped like tadpoles that interlinked with one another and swam amidst the seven stars, hence its grade as a seven-star universal manna.
Absorbing it had caused Meow Meow’s speed to increase even further to the point that it could generate two lightning afterimages of itself when it attacked. Additionally, it also unlocked a new ability after undoing some of its bloodline chains, called Triworld Afterlife Bolts or Triworld Afterlife Halls. When it used the new ability, lightning gathered around its body and formed a magnificent hall of lightning around it. It was a building made of nothing but pure electricity, but Tianming could tell that there was something special about it.
It had something to do with its Genesis Chaos Thunderfiend form. When the first afterlife hall manifested, two others would appear at its flanks, making it three halls in one! The other two sources of chaos lightning had never appeared before this. They seemed to have abruptly come out of the void and appeared less fierce than the lightning on Meow Meow’s body, but one of them seemed to deal soul damage while the other was far more pure and ancient, containing even more destructive power. Combined with Blitzbane, Worldbolt Blast, they would no doubt unleash complete chaos.
« Your new ability’s a little weird. Triworld Afterlife Bolts? What’s the triworld? Does it refer to the three worlds of heaven, earth, and man? » Tianming asked. There could be a clue about their past lives in their abilities, something that he had just come to realize.
« It’s got nothing to do with that. Triworld refers to the three worlds, namely the base world, the ancestral world, and the alternate world, » Meow Meow said after it turned back into a small cat.
« How do you know all that? »
« It just appeared in my head. »
« What are those worlds? »
« No idea. »
« What else do you know about them then? »
« Nothing apart from their existence. It’s kind of like how I know I’m the Genesis Chaos Thunderfiend, but nothing about my past, » it said as it lazily stretched and yawned. It seemed sleepy again.
Tianming gave it a little more thought. « It appears that the ability contains secrets about Meow Meow, and there’s two more kinds of lightning that came with it…. Wait, if the base world is the world we exist in, then could the alternate world refer to the xenomemory space? The world of caeli? That’s why one of the three afterlife halls has lightning that can damage souls. That leaves the ancestral world…. » Tianming suddenly recalled the Kunlan Realm and Primodragon Cave. They seemed to be sources, or bases, of certain cultivation techniques.
« Could the ancestral world refer to places like the Primodragon Cave or the Kunlan Realm? Maybe both of them belong to the ancestral world? » At any rate, it was just a wild guess. Nobody in the Violetglory Star had any concept of the triworld. As far as they knew, there was only the astralscape of order, while the xenomemory space where the wondersky realms existed was a place of dreams that couldn’t influence reality. As long as one wasn’t exiled to it, no person in reality would find their actual bodies there, as there was no real physical connection that existed to facilitate interworld interactions.
« The triworld and the ancestral world…. I wonder what other secrets lie beyond them. » The folks of the Flameyellow Continent only knew of the three worlds of man, earth, and heaven. Earth referred to the cycle of reincarnation, man referred to the world of humans, while heaven referred to the world of gods in general. There was also a distinction between the realms of order and chaos above the Welkin plane.
« If my guess is right and the triworld corresponds to what I think it does, how do the three worlds relate? Are they parts of a greater whole? Or parallel worlds? Maybe there’s a triworld for each of them? » The other two kinds of lightning that appeared with the other afterlife halls seemed to draw power from those different worlds. Though Tianming wanted to find out more, Meow Meow had already fallen asleep. « Dammit! »
Apart from the cat, the other three had also evolved well. The manna Lan Huang consumed was called the Sevenfold Greatstars. As its name suggested, it was formed by a chain of seven starlike objects. Lan Huang became even more physically imposing, with each of its scales gaining another layer of seven-colored protective barrier. Now, it brightly glowed and changed colors nonstop. It was the first time Tianming had seen such a garish-looking lifebound beast that shifted color from red to orange, green, blue, and so on.
Xian Xian’s universal manna was called the Truesoul Sapling. When it had evolved into a six-star divine beast, it had awakened the Demise Greenloti, so there was no new flower this time around. However, its tree form had changed quite a lot.
Lastly, Yin Chen had unlocked yet another form: a butterfly. The seven-star universal manna it consumed was called the Skybreak Wings. Millions of butterflies came flying out of his lifebound space, flapping their blade-like wings, making for quite a majestic sight indeed. No doubt this was Yin Chen’s most beautiful form to date. It also had some special abilities that could be put to good use in combat. Tianming was all too happy at seeing their transformations.
« Your evolution also helps me evolve! Come on, stronger bloodlines! » With their symbiotic cultivation blending all of their bloodlines together, he was the most ferocious Primordial Chaos Beast of them all.
