Paragon of Sin

Chapter 572: Another Life


”… ” Wei Wuyin took several deep breaths before calming down. ”It was something my brother would tell me often. He…once said that mother recited this poem to him when he found it difficult to progress in his cultivation. So whenever I would grow frustrated by my past failures, seeing no results, he would recite it to me. ” 

”… ” Wang Yutian couldn ’t believe it. Was it a coincidence? After a brief moment of mutual silence, he asked: ”Do you know the second part of it? ”

”Second part? ” Wei Wuyin frowned. There was a second part? 

”Yes, ” Wang Yutian responded, ”My friend said the second part is most crucial, yet often forgotten. It goes like this:

”Past ties bind present;

Will resets, mind resets, free;

Future in my eye. ”

Wei Wuyin faintly smiled. After hearing that, he resumed leaving the airspace of Red Dove City.

”What do you think? ” Wang Yutian asked. He wasn ’t quite sure the exact meaning behind this series of poems, but he understood enough to attach them to specific situations. However, the second part eluded him greatly in intent. It even seems contradictory. After all, resetting one ’s mind was a little too radical and meant losing yourself, losing your future.

”I don ’t have any thoughts towards it. It sounds beautiful though, ” Wei Wuyin didn ’t delve into his own thoughts of the second part, feeling that it was unnecessary. 

Unable to satiate his curiosity by picking Wei Wuyin ’s brain, Wang Yutian didn ’t mention it again. It would be far too much for a junior to understand the truth behind such profound literature. 

’Wait…am I bringing in my own bias? ’ Wang Yutian realized his casual disregard for Wei Wuyin was based on age, but could he be defined by age? Wisdom and intelligence can ’t be determined by age, but by experiences and open-mindedness. ’It ’s probably something you either understand or you don ’t, like the aspects of cultivation. A second part that is often forgotten, yet most crucial. An underlying meaning that brings realization. It truly is reflective of cultivation. ’

After this series of thoughts, the two found themselves at the Sky Layer of the Myriad Yore Continent. They lingered at this area that required just a little bit of a higher elevation to enter the Dark Void.

”This Star-Devourer, this Tiangou, do you know anything else about it? ” Wei Wuyin asked, looking at the white dot in the far off distance enlarging with every passing minute. It was getting closer and closer.

”The Star-Devourers are strange existences. They often exist in flourishing stellar regions, not desolate ones like this. ” Wang Yutian commented, finding it quite strange.

”Stellar Regions? You ’ve said this many times. I don ’t understand what that means. ” Wei Wuyin hadn ’t fathomed the scope of Wang Yutian ’s knowledge, and he didn ’t want to risk overreaching and losing focus prior to the Calamity of Hell, but it seems this knowledge will be extremely important going forward.

”Oh? Right. Right! Well, how vast do you think our world is? ” Wang Yutian was a little excited as he asked, realizing that Wei Wuyin was like an unwatered flower awaiting the waters of knowledge.

”Very, ” Wei Wuyin answered. 

”I can tell you that the scope of your understanding of the word ’vast ’ isn ’t even close to reality! ”  Wang Yutian was clearly excited, even his voice was quivering slightly. ”A Stellar Region consists of numerous starfields, and each starfield has a centralized Solar Stars orbited by a varied number of planets, flat continental earths, lunar satellites, and other celestial objects. Do you know the average number of starfields in a single Stellar Region? ”

Wei Wuyin pouted. Obviously, he didn ’t. 

”Roughly ten thousand! And that ’s average! It only counts legitimate starfields, not the typically millions of Solar Stars lingering in the Dark Void by themselves. However, this Stellar Region is smaller, incredibly so. It has, well, had around one hundred and eight starfields. ”

”… ” Wei Wuyin ’s eyes widened. 

Wang Yutian continued, ”This Stellar Region, at least in my time, was referred to as ’Desolate ’, occupied by beasts of a specific Dragon Lineage. The term ’Desolate ’ is meant to refer to a smaller, almost negligible region of starfields that lacks a certain concentration of Mystic Essence, lack of astronomical resources, and civilization development. 

”We called this Stellar Region: the Desolate Dragnet Region. ”
