I have zero idea how this will or can even play out.
everyone is at their peak and and character but determined to win.
Either of the team could solo the entire franchise.
The OP honestly thinks meng hao is franklin richards level lol.
Almost if not conpletely Solos marvel
Ehh... couldn´t Franklin solo STTGL too, or did i get something wrong? Lol.
Anyway, even Franklin should be fodder compared to Meng Hao.
“Back when I fought the Mortal Renegade, I asked myself, ‘What is Essence…?’ I had trouble with that question for a long time, but now, I understand. I know what Essence is.
“Essence has no form or shape; it’s almost like it doesn’t even exist, but simultaneously, it creates and contains every form and shape.
“Essence has no beginning or end, but simultaneously, creates and contains the beginning and end of everything.” Although he only murmured the words softly, they caused all of the 1,080,000 worlds to tremble!
“Essence takes up no space, but simultaneously, creates and contains all space.
“Essence exists outside of time, but simultaneously, creates and contains all time.” With these sentences having been uttered, all of the natural laws in the starry sky, as well as all the magical laws, began to resonate!
“Essence is noiseless and lightless, but simultaneously, creates and contains all sound and light.
“Essence does not exist in any one specific place, but simultaneously, creates and contains all places.” As Bai Xiaochun smiled and spoke these fifth and sixth sentences, all the living beings throughout the starry sky became still and quiet!!
In that silence, Bai Xiaochun spoke his final two sentences!
“Essence is infinitely small, but simultaneously, infinitely large.
“Essence is completely unique, and completely boundless!”
Radiant colors suddenly appeared within the silent starry sky. Countless natural and magical laws fused, and then dispersed. The starry sky vanished, leaving behind only… a single point!
It was a singularity of absolutely no length, breadth, or depth!
That singularity existed within the starry sky. It contained all magical laws, all natural laws, and a total of 1,080,000 worlds!
When Bai Xiaochun saw that, he smiled. Waving his finger, he caused the singularity to transform into a line…. It had no breadth or depth, and yet, was infinitely long, with no end.
“I’m missing something, aren’t I?” After a moment of thought, he waved his finger again, and the infinitely long line suddenly became infinitely wide!
Because it was infinitely long and wide, it was actually impossible to tell which direction was which. Such descriptions could only exist in one’s thoughts.
From a distance, it almost looked like an enormous sheet of paper, spread out through the starry sky. Bai Xiaochun looked at it for a moment, smiled again, and then waved his hand, causing it to grow infinitely deep and high!!
Now, it didn’t look like a piece of paper, but rather, an infinitely wide, infinitely long, infinitely tall box!
“Still missing something.” Shaking his head, Bai Xiaochun waved his finger, causing the infinitely long, wide, and tall box to ripple and distort. It seemed to age, blurring, as though the passage of time was transforming it into something illusory, into a vortex, into… space!
It contained everything that made up the starry sky for the past tens of thousands of years, their existences stretched out together. It contained all life forms and all living beings, from the moment they were born until they died, from the moment they existed, until they didn’t exist. And everything in between. By stepping into that space, one could appear at any moment that had ever existed.
Bai Xiaochun looked at this world made of time and space, and quietly said, “This is the same vortex that Holy Extermination opened with those Dao domain treasures of his. This… is how the River of Time and Space appears.”
“There is more I can do.” He looked with narrowed eyes at the vortex of space and time that he had created. As he did, his eyes reflected the countless beams of light from the dimensions therein. There were too many to count, each of which contained innumerable living beings, all with their own unique destinies!
However, his mere act of looking at the dimensions caused them to tremble unstably, as though they might collapse at any moment.
“What is the Eternal?” he asked himself. A moment passed, and he shook his head.
“How could there truly be something Eternal? According to the people from the Never-Ending Dao Domain, their fourth step is the Eternal Realm.
“But if there is something uniquely Eternal… perhaps it’s just one’s power of imagination.” He sighed.
“Imagination is the most powerful force there is. Essentially, imagination is Will.
“Take, for example, the first time I saw the moonflower seeds spreading out. I remember being moved, because… I was born from the very thoughts of the original Arch-Ancestor, from his imagination. And all of the Eternal Sons were born from the Eternal Mother in the same way.” He closed his eyes, and could almost see the Eternal Mother letting loose a cloud of dandelion seeds, all of them containing her Will, which she hoped would eventually grow into children, one of whom would bring an end to the great catastrophe….
Those expressions of Will became the three sovereigns, who, in the moment before their death, released their own Will. One fragment of that Will… contained something that Bai Xiaochun recognized as his own aura.
Laughing softly, he rose to his feet. As he did, everything around him vanished, and he took a step forward. A vortex appeared, similar to the one he had created earlier. As it spun and swirled, it opened up to reveal… a boundless river!
The River of Time and Space!
He stepped forward into the river, and disappeared. As he did, he spoke, causing his words to echo out into the starry sky before eventually fading away.
“One Will to create oceans. One Will to summon mulberry fields. One Will to slaughter countless devils. One Will to eradicate innumerable immortals…. Only my Will… is Eternal.”
Senior bai on the verge to breaking into fourth step.
It was at this point that, with no warning whatsoever, a powerful blast of energy surged out. It came from that which Meng Hao had founded the entire Ninth Mountain and Sea upon… the Seal the Heavens Hex!
As the Hex erupted, it became an enormous blade which, in the space of a single breath, bore down on Jin Yunshan. His face fell, and a tremor ran through him. Without the slightest hesitation, he swished his sleeve. Instantly, all of the cultivators from the Vast Expanse School suddenly vanished. To their shock, they reappeared in front of Jin Yunshan, a sea of people that he was attempting to use to block the blade that was the Seal the Heavens Hex.
Instantly, bloodcurdling screams began to ring out as the cultivators in front of Jin Yunshan were slashed by the blade. They were shredded into pieces, sending blood and gore flying out in all directions, to then rain down onto the Mountain and Sea Realm.
The blade continued to scream along toward the golden-robed Jin Yunshan.
His scalp was completely numb; this was the first time since Transcending that he had experienced such a sensation of critical danger.
“Impossible! I refuse to believe that I can’t fight this magical item of yours, Meng Hao!” Roaring with rage, Jin Yunshan performed an incantation gesture and then waved his finger. Rumbling sounds erupted as a huge turtle shell appeared in front of him. It was none other than the precious treasure of the Vast Expanse School, which was now being used to intercept the blade.
A cultivator who has already partially transcended into the fourth step getting wrecked 2nd hand by meng hao's issth hex.
“Why haven’t you left? Why haven’t you gone? This starry sky is so small! The Universe is so big! Why haven’t you gone?!
“I should be the lord of this starry sky! I’ve Transcended! Why are you still here?!?!” Jin Yunshan was going mad. It was impossible for him not to. He had paid an unimaginable price to continue his cultivation down to this day, and was now more than half a step into Transcendence. How could he ever have imagined that Meng Hao would suddenly pop up, like a horrific nightmare? “Well since you’re here, I challenge you to a fight!”
Roaring in fury, hair in complete disarray, his mental faculties shattered, he drew upon the complete power of his Transcendent fleshly body and cultivation base, transforming into a bright beam of light that shot directly toward Meng Hao.
Jin Yunshan’s eyes were bright red; he was going all out with this attack. It was the type of attack where he would either succeed and come out alive, or die trying. The level of energy he was unleashing was completely unprecedented, and it even caused his soul to climb to a higher level. It was with shocking battle prowess that he closed in rapidly on Meng Hao.
The entire time, Meng Hao’s face was completely calm. He lifted his right hand and extended a finger. Instantly, everything in front of him went completely calm. Even Jin Yunshan went still.
To Meng Hao, Jin Yunshan was like a baby waving a butter knife.
“Calm down,” he said, lowering his hand.
As he did, everything returned to normal. Jin Yunshan was left trembling and coughing up blood. Shock and disbelief filled him as he looked bitterly at Meng Hao.
He had no choice but to admit that Meng Hao’s strength exceeded even his own powers of imagination. In fact, he was sure that even if he Transcended in soul, thus fully stepping into Transcendence, that he would still be defeated with a single blow if he tried to fight Meng Hao.
“W-what… what realm… are you in?” he stammered.
“Even I’m not sure,” replied Meng Hao, shaking his head. That was no lie. As of this point, he was unsure of his own level of power. All he knew was that after the tens of thousands of years of augury, after the countless years of secluded meditation… he had reached a level of almost complete omnipotence. All he had to do was think, and he could transform anything into ash.
Same cultivator vs Meng Hao unknown realm (still step 4) Baby waving a butter knife. Take note of that last paragraph.
Upon arriving, and just before entering, his expression flickered as he noticed something floating through the vast mist.
“That’s the aura of the fourth step…. No, wait. That’s the aura of the fifth step!” Blinking, he reached out into the mist, causing a blur of light to fly toward his hand.
It was a bottle. Or more precisely, a message in a bottle.
This bottle had floated for who-knew-how-long through the misty, starry sky, until Bai Xiaochun happened across it.
“How amusing,” he thought, blinking a few times. After looking at the bottle for a moment, he opened it and took out the contents, which consisted of a single strip of paper.
Curious, he opened the paper, and immediately laughed.
“Who wrote this? He wanted to get rich?” However, even as he chuckled, his expression flickered, as streams of karma rose up from the paper, seemingly intent on connecting to Bai Xiaochun.
Seinior bai in epilogue confirming both have reached fifth step.
The path of cultivation went on and on forever. It was like the Dao, boundless. It was like the Dharma, limitless. It was like magic, neverending....
The Dao is referred to as boundless countless times in the novel.
He was now truly gaining Dao enlightenment!
What is space...? Meng Hao murmured. The sound of his voice echoed out, causing the starry sky to shake. Although his eyes were closed, in his mind, he could see numerous dimensional spaces, spreading out in all directions, stretching out over such a vast area that they seemed limitless.
Length... is space....
Height... is space....
Breadth... is also space....
Size, can also be an expression of space.... Among the countless dimensional spaces, he saw that they could be described in terms of length, height, breadth, and overall size. And yet all of that seemed to be only a portion of what space was. Those were all... descriptions of space.
However, Meng Hao still didn't understand everything clearly. There was something he was missing, something he hadnt grasped. His brow furrowed as he subconsciously continued to absorb more World Essence power.
He needed to increase his powers of augury and understanding... to gain enlightenment of the true meaning of the Essence of space!
As of this moment, he had completely forgotten about the sea of flames, about the Mountain and Sea Realm, about the war. He was completely and utterly immersed in Dao enlightenment.
The rest of the world was completely shaken. Both the Mountain and Sea Realm and the Outsiders had been in an uproar, but now they were silent. Even the Imperial Lord and the Paragon said nothing.
At long last, the Outsider Dao Sovereign who had been trying every method possible to kill Meng Hao finally had no choice... but to stop unleashing his magic.
It was pointless....
As Meng Hao sought Dao enlightenment, the area around him distorted, occasionally expanding, occasionally contracting. Sometimes it would bulge upward and downward, and sometimes it would sweep out to the left or right.
The Outsider Dao Sovereign was trembling in his form of the flame sea. He couldnt affect Meng Hao at all, and in fact, was prevented from even getting close to him. The closer he got, the more unstable the void became, until destructive rifts even began to open up. In the end, he simply fled.
Currently nothing in existence could get close to that area, with the exception of Meng Hao, who was now gaining enlightenment of the Essence of space.
Meng Haos body was also in a distorted state of transformation. Rumbling could be heard as he expanded, then shrunk. In one instant he was as tiny as a mustard seed, in another, as huge as the Heavens!
The Outsider Paragon looked at Meng Hao with mixed emotions, and then bitterly muttered, The Essence of space.... From ancient times until now, numerous almighty experts have sought enlightenment of it. However, those who succeeded are as rare as phoenix feathers or qilin horns....
Sea Dream's eyes shone with a strange light as she watched Meng Hao, and a smile slowly broke out on her face.
Everyone simply watched as Meng Hao hovered there with his eyes closed, the same as ever, seeking enlightenment. As of now, his state exceeded that of the Eighth Generation Demon Sealer when he actually created the Eighth Hex. At that time, he had only needed to understand the initial aspects regarding length, height, breadth, and size. With that, he had been able to create the Eighth Hex.
On the other hand, what Meng Hao was contemplating was beyond that. He was contemplating the very Essence of space!
That was an Essence filled with endless possibilities, and Meng Hao wanted to know all of them!
Normally, that would be virtually impossible, but with the aid of the World Essence, it was quite the opposite. Currently, rumbling sounds echoed out as Meng Hao continued to absorb more World Essence like mad.
By this point, Meng Hao had absorbed roughly ninety percent, 90,000 motes of light!
He only continued to absorb them faster and faster. At this point, his augury and contemplation of enlightenment had reached the pinnacle. The final 10,000 motes of World Essence light were sucked into him, whereupon his mind felt as if it had been split open by a massive boom that was so loud it was impossible to describe.
Amidst the rumbling, his eyes snapped open, and although an abstruse gleam could be seen therein, there was nothing else that was vastly different. And yet, at the same time, the contrast between the blackness of his pupils and whites of his eyes was more distinct than ever!
His eyes now sparkled in a way that seemed to indicate that they were filled with a great Dao of Heaven and Earth.
So, thats the Essence of space.... he said, smiling slightly. He could feel the Essence of space fading away within him, and could also sense his enhanced powers of augury and deduction dissipating. He sighed.
In almost the same instant that Meng Haos eyes opened, the instability in the surrounding void faded away. Furthermore, his body returned to the Mountain and Sea Realm. When the maddened Outsider Dao Sovereign saw that, his sea of flames form seethed, and he shot toward Meng Hao.
Space... is nothing more than countless threads, formed together into a pattern. The patterns formed by those threads... are space! Meng Hao shook his head, then waved his hand, causing a circle to appear beneath his feet.
I am currently within space, he said, looking down. Then he smiled as his enlightenment deepened. As for the sea of flames that was the Outsider Dao Sovereign, it appeared to be on the verge of consuming Meng Hao, but to the Dao Sovereigns utter shock, he realized that the flames were stuck to the outside of the thread that formed the circle!
Th-this... this.... The Outsider Dao Sovereigns heart was battered by waves of shock, as were the hearts the other Outsider Dao Sovereign and the Paragon.
Space! He actually gained enlightenment of the Essence of space!
Meng Haos expression was calm as he looked at the circle formed by the thread, within which he stood. Then he smiled. As for these threads... doesn't the Essence I have gained enlightenment of consist of more than just the threads themselves?
Within these threads are length, height, breadth, and size. They are limitless, and that is space.... They are flat, but actually.... He waved his right hand, causing a thread to stretch out from the circle, and then pass over him. In the blink of an eye, the circle of threads was no longer flat, but had transformed into... a sphere!
With an additional thread, it is no longer a circle, but a sphere, like a world.... It's too bad my enlightenment is insufficient, and I cant sustain it for very long. Even as Meng Hao murmured to himself, the sphere collapsed, and he sighed lightly.
In my eyes, the world is just a canvas. Meng Hao looked up at the shocked Outsider, who was still a sea of flames. Then Meng Hao waved his right hand, causing the flames to suddenly lock into place. Then they began to transform; no longer were they surrounding Meng Hao, but instead, they were now spreading out to form a static image of flames within the starry sky, like a painting!
being above Infinite D.
