The instance they heard Guo Chong’s words, the other four Peak Masters’ eyes lit up as well.
Suddenly, Guo Chong raised a hand.
The several hundreds of Concept Fragments that were hovering in front of him instantly fell down towards the Profound Assimilation Formation that enveloped the entire high platform like rain.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
Pieces of Concept Fragments fell into the fog that shrouded the high platform and disappeared without a trace.
‘It’s coming!’ Duan Ling Tian who was inside the Profound Assimilation Formation, and who had merged his Spiritual Energy with it, immediately noticed the appearance of the several hundreds of Concept Fragments.
After the Concept Fragments fell into the Profound Assimilation Formation, it was refined into waves and waves of Concept Energy by the Profound Assimilation Formation immediately.
In just a blink of an eye, the Concept Energy quickly spread out through the entire space of the Profound Assimilation Formation.
Duan Ling Tian whose eyes were opened could see the solidified Concept Energy clearly.
The Concept Energy could be divided into seven types. Five of them were green, red, blue, purple and khaki in colors. They were obviously the Energy that was made up of five different Nature Concepts: Wind, Fire, Water, Thunder, and Earth.
The other two types were colorless. However, a faint yet strong solidified Qi neatly emanated out in their immediate surroundings. It was either the Sword or Saber Concept Energy.
It was obvious that the Energy was formed from both the Sword and Saber Concepts.
‘What a pity that I only comprehend the Wind, Thunder, Earth and Sword Concepts. Otherwise, my gain this time would be even greater.’ Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath as his Spiritual Energy began to move swiftly in the Profound Assimilation Formation. Following the memory of the Rebirth Martial Emperor, he tried his best to control the formation as much as he possibly could.
At the same time, the green, purple and khaki colored Concept Energy that were spread out in the Profound Assimilation Formation and the surrounding sword-shaped Qi Concept Energy each had one-tenth separated from their main bodies.
The four Concept Energy that were separated vibrated in the air before flying in the same direction.
The direction was exactly where Duan Ling Tian was located.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The Concept Energy that originated from a large number of Wind, Thunder, Earth and Sword Concept Fragments each rushed into Duan Ling Tian’s body.
At the same time, the surface of his body emitted four solidified Concepts that slowly became majestic and vast as time passed.
Those were the Wind, Thunder, Earth and Sword Concepts.
The four Concepts gradually became bigger as it slowly transformed. It was obvious that they were continuously digesting the four waves of Concept Energy that were entering Duan Ling Tian’s body. As long as he could digest the four Concept Energy completely, all four Concepts would also be able to complete their final transformation.
When Duan Ling Tian was separating the four Concept Energy that he needed and let them enter his body, he could feel his Spiritual Energy, that had merged with the Profound Assimilation Formation and was about 90% depleted, suddenly quivered for a moment. It was as if it was going to be expelled out of the Formation soon.
‘With the Spiritual Energy that I possess now, it’s not enough for me to separate anymore Concept Energy. However, it’s definitely more than enough for me to let a certain someone repel the Concept Energy in the Profound Assimilation Formation.’ Duan Ling Tian moved his thoughts. The final little Spiritual Energy that was left pierced through the Profound Assimilation Formation again and issued the last command.
At the same time, the Spiritual Energy that Duan Ling Tian merged with the Profound Assimilation Formation was completely used up.
If Duan Ling Tian opened his eyes now, he would instantly see a red figure that was also sitting cross-legged inside the Profound Assimilation Formation in a distance that was not too far away. Hu Fei, the direct disciple of the Peak Master of Fire Peak, had an extra force of resistance around his body.
The moment this force of resistance appeared, the red Concept Energy that was originally by his side — the Concept Energy transformed by the Fire Concept Fragments — was completely repelled. It was unable to approach his body at all.
Right at this moment, the wave of red Concept Energy dissipated. It vanished swiftly out of sight.
The other eight people, on the other hand, were more or less absorbing the Concept Energy that they needed. However, the amount of Concept Energy that merged with their bodies was only about 1%.
The rest of the Concept Energy proceeded to vanish inside the Profound Assimilation Formation. It was as if they had been swallowed up by the Profound Assimilation Formation.
Even just 1% of the Concept Energy was more than enough to allow the eight people to reap quite a great number of benefits.
Time passed by quietly.
An hour had gone by.
Two hours had gone by.
Outside of the Profound Assimilation Formation, outside of the high platform, the five Peak Masters of the Five Element Sect were waiting.
From the very beginning until now, their attentions were on the Profound Assimilation Formation. Anticipation could be seen in their eyes.
All of them were eager to find out exactly how many levels the young talented people of their own Peaks, who had entered the Profound Assimilation Formation, had managed to raise for their own Concept.
Five hours went by quickly.
However, the fog surrounding the high platform had yet to dissipate. It meant that the Profound Assimilation Formation was still running, and the Concept Energy that was transformed from the Concept Fragments had yet to be fully digested by the people inside.
“What’s going on?” Yu Fang, the Peak Master of Water Peak, furrowed her brows together. “This doesn’t seem right. I remember last time when we entered the Profound Assimilation Formation, we came out after three hours.”
“I find it strange as well,” Tian Gu, the Peak Master of Earth Peak, nodded his head. “It’s a pity that it’s almost impossible for my Spiritual Energy to pierce through the Profound Assimilation Formation to see what’s actually going on inside.”
“There’s only one possibility. Someone has yet to fully digest the Concept Energy in his body,” Cha Bai, the Peak Master of Fire Peak, chimed in with a glum look on his face.
“Looks like this generation of disciples would bring a lot of surprises to us. The longer they stay inside, the more benefits they’ll gain!” Guo Chong, the Peak Master of Gold Peak, who was also the Sect Leader of the Five Element Sect, exclaimed in surprise.
Qi Yu, the Peak Master of Wood Peak, was standing at the side with a face full of anticipation as well.
‘Duan Ling Tian, could it be you?’ He asked quietly in his heart.
Inside the Profound Assimilation Formation.
Although some of the young talents had completely absorbed and digested the Concept Energy and successfully elevated the Concepts that they comprehended, they were still temporarily unable to wake up due to the existence of the Profound Assimilation Formation.
Once they had entered the Concept comprehension state and were shrouded by the Profound Assimilation Formation, they would not be able to wake up if the Formation did not disappear.
This time, they could not even sense the transformations in the Concept that they had comprehended. Only when the Profound Assimilation Formation had completed disappeared would they be able to sense the changes in the Concept that they had comprehended and instantly wake up.
It was actually very easy to make the Profound Assimilation Formation disappear.
As long as the Concept Energy that was spread out all over the Profound Assimilation Formation and the Concept Energy that was inside the human bodies who were inside the formation completely vanished, the formation would disappear as well.
However, the only person who was still conscious in the Profound Assimilation Formation was Duan Ling Tian.
‘How refreshing!’ Duan Ling Tian was absolutely overjoyed when he could clearly sense the four Concepts that he comprehended was still continuously enhancing themselves.
‘Originally, I need to spend at least 120 hours to fully digest these four Concept Energy. However, since I can simultaneously comprehend two different types of Concept Energy, I only need half of that time,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself.
As for Huang Daniu and the others, they needed to spend three hours just to fully absorb and digest 1% of the Concept Energy.
He, on the other hand, needed thirty hours to fully absorb and digest 10% of one Concept Energy. Four Concept Energy would amount to 120 hours. However, because he could comprehend two different Concepts at the same time, it was more efficient for him as the time was reduced by half, which was 60 hours.
‘Now, five hours have gone by…. I need 55 more hours.’ As he thought to himself, Duan Ling Tian immersed himself in the feelings of having his four Concepts being elevated again. This kind of roller coaster-like feelings overwhelmed him with joy from the bottom of his heart.
Wind, sometimes gentle and sometimes swift.
Thunder, sometimes harmonious and sometimes violent.
Sword, sometimes calm and sometimes sharp.
Earth, allowed Duan Ling Tian to feel like he was united with the entire land underneath, moving as one.
In the Profound Assimilation Formation, Duan Ling Tian who was digesting the four Concept Energy and elevating the Concept that he comprehended happily, was in an extremely good mood. How he wished this moment would last forever.
However, the five people who were outside the Profound Assimilation Formation were completely worried sick.
“It has been ten hours, but the Profound Assimilation Formation has yet to disappear! Nothing went wrong inside right?” Tian Gu asked while he made his own assumption.
“I don’t think so,” Yu Fang shook her head. “This Profound Assimilation Formation was arranged by a Martial Monarch Stage Inscription Master that our Five Element Sect’s ancestor hired. It has never once caused a problem before, I’m sure there’s no problem this time.”
“B-But, this is just too long! In the history of our Five Element Sect, it only took the Profound Assimilation Formation three hours to finish every time we activated the Formation!” Cha Bai’s face was a little glum when he frowned.
At this moment, even Guo Chong, the Sect Leader of Five Element Sect, no longer appeared as calm as he usually was. “Ten hours… what’s actually happening inside?”
He quickly looked towards Qi Yu who remained calm, “Qi Yu, what do you think?”
“What can I think?”
Qi Yu shrugged and smiled faintly, “Now, what’s the use if we panic? It’s not like we can forcibly smash open the Profound Assimilation Formation and enter to have a look at our little fellows’ conditions.”
Tian Gu let out a wry smile after he listened to Qi Yu’s words, “That’s the Inscription Formation that a Martial Emperor had arranged. How’s it possible for us to smash it open by force?”
“We’ve only mastered the activation method of the Profound Assimilation Formation but not the method to shut it off. According to the Senior Martial Emperor, as long as the Concept Energy has been fully absorbed and digested by the people inside, the Profound Assimilation Formation will shut off completely! It has always been like that all these while.” Guo Chong frowned as he added, “However, this time, it’s indeed a bit strange. Don’t tell me that there’s still somebody inside who still hasn’t fully absorb and digest the Concept Energy yet? B-But, it has already been ten hours! If it’s so, how high will his Concept be elevated?”
