Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: JayC
Relying on two Concept Fragments to comprehend two types of Concepts at the same time, splitting his mind into two.
Duan Ling Tian’s expression went serious as his breathing became heavy as well.
“Earlier, when I tried to comprehend Wind Concept and Lightning Concept via their respective fragments… My consciousness split into two and comprehended two types of Concept at the same time!”
“Moreover, my consciousness that had split apart comprehended Wind Concept at a speed that wasn’t any different to before.” Duan Ling Tian gasped. “What exactly is going on? I was utterly incapable of this in the past… Yet now, I’ve achieved it instead.”
Under his curiosity, Duan Ling Tian searched the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor as he wanted to obtain an answer from it.
However, even the Rebirth Martial Emperor who’d experiences two lifetimes and countless aspects of the world had never heard of anyone who could split their consciousness into two and comprehend two Concepts at the same time.
“But according to the memories of the Rebirth Martial Emperor… Consciousness comes from the soul. I’d once tries to comprehend two Concepts at once yet failed, and it proved that my consciousness was incapable of splitting into two at that time.”
“Yet now, my consciousness is capable of splitting into two and allowing me to comprehend two types of Concepts with their respective fragments.”
Since the consciousness came from the soul, then a change in consciousness was naturally related to the soul.
For a time, Duan Ling Tian started pondering, and in the end, he only thought of a single possibility.
“Devilseal Tablet!” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath and muttered to himself. Besides the Devilseal Tablet, he was truly unable to think of another reason.
At that time, when the Devilseal Tablet’s strength gushed into his body and soul to cause him to become ‘devilified,’ and it allowed him to possess the strength to instantly annihilate Void Transformation Stage experts while his consciousness was in a state of drifting about in his mind.
After that time, the Devilseal Tablet had left behind two great side effects in him.
The first was his mood very easily became restless and was difficult to control.
The second was his Spiritual Force was suppressed, and it didn’t improve along with his cultivation.
“Now it would seem like it ought to be the incident from that day that affected my soul, and it caused a change to occur in my consciousness, allowing it to split into two.” The more Duan Ling Tian thought about it in his heart, the surer he was.
Besides this, there seemed to be no other reason.
“My consciousness can split into two to comprehend two types of Concept at the same time… In other words, I have a greater advantage from ordinary martial artists in terms of the comprehension of Concept!”
“An ordinary martial artist was only capable of concentrating their attention to comprehend a single Concept at a time, and they had to spend twice the time to comprehend two types of Concepts to the same level. On the other hand, I don’t have to spend so much time because I can comprehend two types of Concepts at the same time.” When he thought up to here, Duan Ling Tian was slightly excited.
He who would split his consciousness into two was capable of comprehending Wind Concept and another Concept at the same time in the future, allowing the second Concept to swiftly improve.
“Right!” Duan Ling Tian’s whose eyes unintentionally glanced at the four Concept Fragments in his hand shuddered, and he seemed to have thought of something. “Since my consciousness is capable of splitting into two and comprehending two types of Concepts at the same time… I wonder if I’m capable of splitting it into four and comprehending four Concepts at the same time?”
Needless to say, Duan Ling Tian had great ambition.
But unfortunately, after some testing, he noticed with extreme helplessness that his consciousness was at most capable of splitting into two.
In other words, he was only capable of comprehending two types of Concepts at the same time, and he was unable to comprehend three or even four different Concepts at the same time.
“What a pity… If I was really capable of comprehending four Concepts at the same time, then it would be so great.” Duan Ling Tian sighed, yet wasn’t dejected.
As far as he was concerned, being capable of comprehending two types of Concepts at the same time was already much better than ordinary martial artists.
“Comprehending two types of different Concepts…” Duan Ling Tian’s gaze descended onto the four Concept Fragments in his hand once more, and he put away the Earth Concept Fragment and Sword Concept Fragment in the end.
The stronger Concept he’d comprehended now was the Wind Concept, and he’d already comprehended third level Intermediate Wind Concept.
Second to it was Lightning Concept.
“Once I successfully comprehend Intermediate Lightning Concept, my strength will obtain a completely new leap, and it would be like Su Li.”
During the Martial Competition of the Ten Dynasties, Su Li had executed two types of Intermediate Concepts at the same time, and it could be said to have shocked many people.
At that time, amongst all the young geniuses from the ten Dynasties, only Su Li had comprehended two types of Intermediate Concepts.
“Lightning Concept!” Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath as he held the Wind Concept Fragment in one hand and the Lightning Concept Fragment in the other, and he comprehended two types of Concepts as he cultivated.
Nine Dragons War Sovereign Technique, Sword Dragon Form!
Duan Ling Tian’s consciousness that had split into two fell into a sea of wind to comprehend Wind Concept while also falling into a cloud of lightning to comprehend Lightning Concept.
His cultivation and two Concepts swiftly improved at the same time.
Since breaking through to the Void Interpretation Stage, Duan Ling Tian noticed that the overbearing medicinal strength of the Rebirth Pill rejected the spirit energy of the heaven and earth he absorbed from the outside world and even from Origin Stones.
If one really had to give an example, then the Rebirth Pill’s medicinal strength had an extremely strong desire to monopolize the Origin Energy in Duan Ling Tian’s body, and it didn’t allow the spirit energy of the heavens and the earth to take a share through any methods.
Unknowingly, three days passed by, and Duan Ling Tian awoke from his cultivation and let out a breath of air.
He cultivation didn’t break through, nor did his Concept.
But Duan Ling Tian was still extremely happy because he noticed he was capable of comprehending two types of Concepts at the same time.
So long as he was given the time, the Concept he comprehended would be better than anyone!
“As the saying goes, where there is loss, there’s surely gain. These words aren’t mistaken in the slightest… My Spiritual Force was suppressed, yet I unexpectedly possessed the ability to comprehend two types of Concepts at the same time.” After he shook his head and smiled, Duan Ling Tian opened his room door that he hadn’t opened for three days and walked out.
After he noticed there was no movement coming from Ye Xuan’s room, he couldn’t help but shake his head and smile.
“That little girl is truly working hard.” Duan Ling Tian naturally knew that Ye Xuan was cultivating in her room.
As he stood before the pavilion’s balcony, Duan Ling Tian looked at the vast practice grounds before him, and it was utterly devoid of people, causing It to seem slightly lonely.
“Duan Ling Tian!” Suddenly, a voice sounded out by Duan Ling Tian’s ears.
When he turned around to look, he noticed that a young man was soaring into the sky from the nearby pavilion’s balcony while greeting him.
He had an impression of this young man, he was precisely one of the two Wood Peak disciples he’d met when he just arrived, the Wood Peak disciple that had better luck and wasn’t blasted flying by him.
“Is there something you need?” Duan Ling Tian glanced at this Wood Peak disciples and asked indifferently.
“Duan Ling Tian, what did you come to the Wood Peak for?” The Wood Peak disciple asked Duan Ling Tian.
Duan Ling Tian glanced deeply at the Wood Peak disciple and replied with a question. “What did you come for?”
“I naturally came for the sake of obtaining even better cultivation resources, especially high level Concept Fragments and grade two spirit weapons.” The Wood Peak disciple spoke as a matter of course.
“Then I’m the same.” Duan Ling Tian shrugged.
The Wood Peak disciple’s eyes lit up when he heard this, and a smile appeared on the corners of his mouth.
“What? Is there something you want to tell me?” Duan Ling Tian spoke out with an expression of ‘anticipation’ when he saw the Wood Peak disciple’s expression, and he didn’t use voice transmissions to speak with the disciple any longer.
The Wood Peak disciple didn’t mind and nodded, and then he continued via voice transmission. “Since we’re people that’re alike, I’ll point out a way for you… Elder Tang of the Earth Peak is extremely interested in you and wants to ask you to join the Earth Peak.”
“Earth Peak? Elder Tang?” Duan Ling Tian was slightly surprised, and then he asked. “If I’m not wrong, you ought to be a Wood Peak disciple, right? Why’re you helping the Earth Peak drag people to their side?”
“I’m only a Wood Peak disciple on the surface, but my true identity is an Earth Peak disciple. Besides that, that person that was defeated by you a few days ago was an Earth Peak disciple as well.” The ‘Earth Peak disciple’ that was hiding in the Wood Peak continued speaking to Duan Ling Tian via voice transmission.
“So that’s how it is… I wonder what benefits the Earth Peak can give me?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“A grade two spirit weapon and a seventh level Concept Fragment.” The Earth Peak disciple was probably influenced by Duan Ling Tian’s straightforwardness, and he actually didn’t utilize a voice transmission to communicate with Duan Ling Tian this time.
Perhaps as far as he was concerned, there was no one in the surroundings, so it was fine even if he spoke it out.
“So stingy?!” Duan Ling Tian frowned when he heard the Earth Peak disciple.
The Earth Peak disciple couldn’t help but be stunned when he heard Duan Ling Tian. Can this be called stingy?
That’s a grade two spirit weapon and a seventh level Concept Fragment!
Of course, if he knew that Duan Ling Tian possessed a grade one spirit weapon and even a Quasi Royal Grade Spirit Weapon that surpassed a grade one spirit weapon, then perhaps he wouldn’t think in this way.
As for Concept Fragments, Duan Ling Tian was even more indifferent.
As far as he was concerned, the Concept Fragments he possessed up until now was already sufficient to allow him to directly utilize them until the Void Transformation Stage.
After his cultivation broke through to the Void Transformation Stage, he would possess a certain amount of strength to wander about in the Foreign Lands.
At that time, he would go take the ‘great treasure’ left behind by the Rebirth Martial Emperor.
So long as he took that great treasure, then not to mention various ninth level Concept Fragments would be abundant in supply, he wouldn’t even lack Profundity Fragments.
So he really didn’t take a fancy to a seventh level Concept Fragment.
“Duan Ling Tian, aren’t you too greedy?” The Earth Peak disciple asked with a low voice.
As far as he was concerned, the reason Duan Ling Tian felt the price the Earth Peak gave was too low was undoubtedly because Duan Ling Tian wanted to raise the price arbitrarily.
“Just this is called being greedy? Your Earth Peak is truly stingy.” Duan Ling Tian sighed.
“So what you mean is you’re unwilling to join our Earth Peak?” The Earth Peak disciple’s eyes flashed with a cold light as he asked with a low voice.
