Staring at Ling Xian, who has now walked to the second tombstone, they appeared bitter and shocked.
Compared to him, they truly were just trash.
Everyone was bitter. They continuously shook their heads and kept on attempting to understand their own tombstone.
Ling Xian stared directly at the black tombstone before him. His eyes flickered with expectation. After understanding that tombstone of Dao, he now understands one thing.
The rumors were true. Every single tombstone is full of Dao of Heaven and Earth.
The Dao of Heaven and Earth are the most important composition of this universe and are also the most important things cultivators care about.
To put it simply, the path that all those who seek immortality is the path towards understanding the fundamental Dao of Heaven and Earth. As long as the cultivator chooses to go down and focus on one Dao and fully understands it to a point where one understands the fundamental composition, then one will reach a scary realm.
Of course, people who can fully understand the fundamentals of any path are normally immortals up there.
But, a building has to be build from the ground up. without foundation, how can one reach a high level?
The tombstones before everyone were without a doubt, a gift.
Even if they were able to learn the very basics, it would be a great gain. It helps them to build a sturdy foundation that can be enhanced and built on in the future.
Though right at this moment, it doesn't really benefit him, as he improves and levels up, what he learned today will for sure be applied in the future.
Therefore, Ling Xian's eyes were heated. He called out to the enlivener and then injected its energy into the second tombstone.
Energy turned into a shapeless storm that instantly injected into the tombstone. It clashed against the automatically growing black light.
After his previous experience, Ling Xian already knew about this black barrier's defensive abilities. Therefore, he instantly exploded with his strongest energy and crushed it!
Then, another strange rhythmic force gushed out and surrounded him.
This time however, no Dao appeared. It was merely that rhythmic force that vibrated.
"What happened? How come there is a rhythm but no Dao?"
Ling Xian frowned. He couldn't understand what was happening. Didn't they say every tombstone contains a Dao? How come there isn't one here?
This strange occurrence made him remember those three pages of the Divine Book of Genesis.
Those days, he tried to study the three pages of the Divine Book of Genesis. Out of the three pages, one had a Dao while the other two were blank. This is exactly what is happening here.
Could it be… what is buried under each tombstone isn't a Tao, but a page of the Divine Book of Genesis?
Ling Xian suddenly had a thought. This thought was considered even by himself to be unrealistic, even terrifying.
"Let me try another tombstone."
After making this decision, Ling Xian tore apart space and reappeared before another tombstone. At once, he called out to his enlivener and exploded with his strongest wave of energy.
Instantly, the barrier broke. What happened next was the same as before.
There was a rhythm but no Dao!
This stunned Ling Xian. After remembering his terrifying guess, he shivered despite the warm weather.
"None… just like the Divine Book of Genesis… there is no Dao."
Mumbling, Ling Xian forced himself to calm down and he analyzed the possibility of his assumption.
The Divine Book of Genesis is a heavenly object and every page records a Dao. That was without a doubt.
The tombstones before him also buried one Dao per tombstone. Without a doubt, that was shockingly similar.
But if that was all, then Ling Xian wouldn't link these two heavenly objects. After all, the Taoism community is mysterious and unpredictable. It's not considered strange to have two heavenly treasures with the same effect.
But just a few days ago, he found out that not every page of the Divine Book contained a Dao. Some pages only had signs of a Dao but no Dao.
Yet this was the same for the tombstones before him. This meant he had to link these two objects. Even if it's a coincidence, it was way too much of a coincidence.
This guess was far too astonishing. Even for Ling Xian himself, it was difficult to believe.
If the tombstones buried pages from the Divine Book of Genesis, and there are thousands of tombstones, then wouldn't that mean there are thousands of pages of the Divine Book of Genesis here?
Remember that it was rare to see the existence of even just one page. Yet there's a possibility here that this place lies thousands of pages. How unbelievable was this?
Anyone would find this difficult to believe!
But other than this explanation, Ling Xian couldn't think what else could explain the similarities between the Divine Book and the tombstones.
"The Divine Book of Genesis, the tombstones of Dao…"
Ling Xian murmured to himself, his starry eyes were full of disbelief, "I am too afraid to imagine… if the truth is what I am thinking of, then it would be far too unbelievable."
He suppressed the shock in his chest and forced himself to calm down.
What could he do? That guess was far too shocking. Even with his normally collected mentality, he couldn't help but be surprised.
"No matter what. Let me investigate into the tombstones first to see if it actually buries such pages."
Ling Xian paused, then he injected his soul into the tombstone and searched thoroughly inside and out.
The result was fruitless.
This made him reconsider. Was he being too sensitive? Perhaps there really are heavenly objects that are exactly the same? He reconsidered for a second but then declined.
If Dao was hidden in both, then it's not strange. But both were split between some having Dao and others having only signs of a Dao. Only one explanation can explain this.
The tombstones of Dao are hiding the pages from the Divine Book of Genesis.
Maybe Ling Xian's cultivation level is still too low so he cannot discover it. But he firmly believes his guess.
Though his guess is so unbelievable and so out of the world, it is the only perfect explanation.
"Phew… this is far too unbelievable…"
Ling Xian sighed in relief. Then, he glanced around. Seeing the thousands of different tombstones, his eyes heated up.
If one tombstone contained one page, then wouldn't this mean there are thousands of pages here?
This astronomical number made Ling Xian's eyes heat up and hastened his breathing.
What could he do? Even one page of the book is extremely tempting, let alone thousands. Even an omnipotent would go insane at the thought of this.
But very quickly, Ling Xian calmed down.
Because he realized that even if there are thousands of pages here, he will not be able to get them. He had inspected, the tombstones were very sturdy. Though he wasn't sure what it was composed of, they didn't pale in comparison to the immortal gold!
In other words, even if he uses all he's got and uses Zi Yao, he cannot smash them.
"The me right now cannot break the tombstones no matter what. In other words, even if the pages are actually in there, I cannot get them."
Ling Xian shook his head and smiled. He felt helpless.
But quickly, he regained himself. If this tombstone could be broken, then others could take the pages as well. If that was a possibility, then would he have the opportunity right now to be discovering this secret?
