Chapter 330 - 【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】
On the boat, Zhong Yue carefully listened to Tian Mo Fei imparting him with the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】, managing to attain many insights from it before finally consolidating a rudimentary understanding on the demons' cultivation method rather than knowing nothing at all.
The demons' cultivation method was different from the techniques that the other race's cultivated. It was easier, faster, and stronger. But it was also more erratic and unpredictable!
The demonic arts had one deadly flaw — it would lead to instability in the practitioner's mind. They would have a weaker control of their cultivation compared to people who walked the orthodox path; death by psychosis was something not uncommon with those who cultivated the demonic arts.
The number of human Qi Practitioner deaths due to cultivation psychosis was lesser compared to the demons, but thousands of Qi Practitioners who practiced the demonic arts died due to it every year.
Some of them were possessed by their inner demons to become mindless war machines which would only die after completely exhausting the fires of their life. Some were burnt to ash by the demon fire that took root from within their own body, and some died due to their own arcane energy that was sent to disarray. Many were also killed by the demon souls that they nurtured to use as their own. There were so many different ways to die from cultivation psychosis.
Moreover, it would come as no surprise that the demon magnates were faced with such a problem as well. This issue was much rarer in the other races, like the human race. The paradigm under which the humans practiced cultivation emphasized stability and steady progress under a clear state of mind. It was incredibly rare for psychosis to ever take
occur within the human cultivators.
Through Swords Gate's history, only nine elders were killed by the soul weapons they had forged themselves — they were the creators of the Ten Malefic Weapons. They didn't die from cultivation psychosis, but from their soul weapons that grew into bellicose aberrants.
In stark contrast, this phenomenon was quite common in the demon race.
The【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】was one of the most vaunted heritages of the demon race, containing methods to cultivate one's frame of mind. But even so, it wasn't as good as the humans' mental cultivation techniques and was even more precarious.
Most importantly, the demons would frequently deliberately nurture their inner demons for cultivation purposes. For instance, the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】would require the cultivators to plant the demon seeds in their bodies to cultivate them.
By cultivating this technique and planting a demon seed in the body, it would be akin to two people cultivating at the same time. Surely, the cultivator's speed of advancement would be staggering.
But the most formidable aspect of the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】was that it could allow the cultivator to plant a total of nine demon seeds, equating to ten people cultivating at a time!
But everything came with a price. If one's soul were weaker than the nurtured demon seed, they would be devoured and taken over. Thus, only when one's soul was strong enough to defeat the demon seed would they be able to enjoy the fruits of the demon seeds properly.
These nine demon seeds represented nine demon gods. Surely, it wouldn't be a cakewalk to defeat the demon gods that each seed spawned. Rather, it wouldn't be odd for the cultivator to devoured by the demon gods they raised.
However, if one were able to successfully defeat all nine demon gods and take over their cultivation bases, then the cultivator's frame of mind would reach an unprecedented apex, being robust to the point of being unshakeable by even the heavens!
The cultivator’s arcane energy and prowess would then be terrifyingly powerful!
Because of the extreme difficulty in cultivating the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】, it was fragmented into eight parts. But this demonic art was so abstruse and potent that despite it being broken apart, every piece was enough to support each of the eight saint clans in growing into bona fide hegemons of the demon race.
The【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】was split into eight, but even so, each part is still a god-level cultivation method. It was more than enough for the demons to cultivate to the level of gods. It was needless to say that this cultivation art was extremely powerful!
Zhong Yue studied the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】in praise. To think that an eight of a cultivation art was still enough to cultivate to the level of gods ... one could easily infer how high the Demon Saint's achievements were!
"In the history of our demon race, those who can cultivate five demon seeds are all potential magnates. Being able to form six demon seeds denotes that they were a talent that had the potential to become a god. Only three demons had successfully cultivated seven demon seeds. One succeeded in eight, and the only one who was able to achieve nine was only the Demon Saint."
Tian Mo Concubine said, "Your Tian Myriad Mother is from the Tian Myriad Saint Clan of the eight saint demon races, she had cultivated eight demon seeds, but only six of the eight had succeeded in maturing."
The【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】Tian Mo Concubine imparted to him was the segment that belonged to the Luo Sha Saint Clan,
Shura, Asura, Yaksha, Rakshasa, Yama, Tian Myriad, Yan Mo, and Ji Xian ... these were the eight saint demon races. Tian Mo Concubine was precisely from the Luo Sha Saint Clan, and she was chosen as an imperial concubine for the Demon Saint.
She cultivated the【Yu Lan Aroma True Scripture】, its danger was lower than the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】and was more suitable for ladies. It was a cultivation art given to her by the Demon Saint when she was selected as his imperial concubine.
As for the additional scarce information in the Luo Sha Saint Clan’s【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】was also because of her, she had learned some from Demon Saint even though she didn’t cultivate it.
After all, if she were trying to kill Demon Saint, she would surely do her homework and study her target's cultivation technique.
Tens of days passed since Zhong Yue calmed his mind and studied the Luo Sha Saint Clan's【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】. They flew across the East Barren and reached to the Eastern Sea. It was then that Zhong Yue finished his studies on the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】that was taught to him by Tian Mo Concubine. He said with furrowed his brows, "My dear lover, I think you've missed something in the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】... such as the method for the demon seed!"
Tian Mo Concubine was shocked, she then chuckled, "Love, you have quite an affinity for the demonic path, to be able to understand it and see through the missing part fully! What a shame you are not part of the demon race, or otherwise, I'm sure there will be a chair for you at the top of the demon race! It's not that I intentionally hid it away from you, but even though it is easy to plant the demon god seeds, it is truly an arduous task to nurture it. I'm worried that you will be devoured by the demon gods you've nurtured on your own. If it happens, wouldn't all my hard work be in vain?"
Zhong Yue smiled and said, "The demon seeds are the core of this【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】, without it, this cultivation method is practically useless. Just tell me, and the rest is none of your concerns."
Tian Mo Concubine rolled her eyes at him and proceeded with imparting him the method to plant the demon god seeds and nurture them. She then said, "I've warned you, if you had pushed for it, you can't blame me for your death."
Zhong Yue frowned as he studied at the method, although the method of cultivating the demon seeds completed the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】, he somehow felt like something was still missing, a negligible part which was in fact, of utmost importance.
The demon god seeds were to distill one's negative thoughts and emotions into nine demon seeds in the psyche ocean. The absorbed the nutrients in the psyche ocean to nurture the demon gods that grow together with one's atman.
He studied it carefully and thought, But there must be some means to suppress the nine demon gods, which will explain the ‘Godly Radiating' part in the cultivation technique's name … Under the godly radiation, the nine demon gods will be repressed and refined. The【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】imparted by Tian Mo Concubine to myself, although it does contain the part of the godly radiation, its strength is not strong enough to suppress the demon gods, I will definitely be devoured by the demon gods in the end….
The【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】's godly radiation was a visualization picture art of the Saint Demon Emperor. There were too many places she could make changes to it, as long as a single set of the totem patterns was missing in it, the godly radiation's power would be significantly reduced.
This demon girl, she has definitely hidden it from me!
Zhong Yue knew it very well, the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】imparted by her could only suppress six demon gods at the most, and the suppression could not last for long. Once he had reached the level of the True Spirit, the godly radiation would not be strong enough to suppress the six demon gods, and he would be devoured for sure.
Not only that, if he had planted nine demon gods, the flaw would emerge even earlier in the Inner Core level, and he would be devoured by the nine demon gods in the level of Heavenly Dharma!
Clearly, this demon girl Tian Mo Concubine's plan was not any simple, Zhong Yue was already an Inner Core Qi Practitioner, and she needed him to help her kill the Demon Saint. He was still useful to her now, but that wouldn't be the same after Demon Saint was dead.
With the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】she had imparted to him, she wouldn't even need to kill him on her own – Zhong Yue would still die in her hands.
What is this Saint Demon Emperor? I'll supplant it with Sui Sovereign, and I dare the nine demon god seeds to rise and fight against me!
Zhong Yue didn't rush his pace to cultivate the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】. Instead, he was trying to replace the Saint Demon Emperor with Sui Sovereign and was attending to the flaws that emerged from the change, amending them and correcting it before he starts cultivating the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】.
Furthermore, he still had to check the other parts just in case Tian Mo Concubine had nefariously left behind any other flaws.
After all, demon girls were all sly and cunning, he couldn’t afford to let his guard down.
Another day passed in the blink of an eye, and Zhong Yue finally started cultivating the【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】.
He triggered the dark side of himself, extracting out the negative emotions and thoughts out from him. He nurtured his heart demons, nourishing them and instantly, his whole body became surrounded by a dark, evil air; the dark side of his was then condensed into the demon seeds, planted into his psyche ocean like small little cocoons.
The【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】was cast, and the demonic Qi around Zhong Yue got even thicker, heavier, and darker; he was enveloped in the demonic Qi like a giant cocoon himself.
Meanwhile, the amended【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】morphed Zhong Yue’s Yuan Shen into the Sui Sovereign form, shining in bright dazzling lights and guarded his consciousness from losing control.
The【Heavenly Saint Godly Radiating Art】was indeed worthy as the strongest demonic cultivation technique – it was strong and fast ... nine times faster than Zhong Yue's usual cultivation speed!
His nine demon god seeds were growing at a crazy rate; after tens of days, they were now already as tall as a man’s height, the demon gods in them were on the verge of extricating out from the cocoons.
Zhong Yue's demonic Qi had gotten even more oppressive, the demonic Qi and dark rays converged behind him and showed the faint figures of nine dreadful-looking demon gods that looked like as if they were going to devour any livings.
Tian Mo Concubine was shocked, "What is this cultivation speed? How can the human cultivate so quick with the demon cultivation technique? Just tens of days and the nine demon gods are on the verge of maturing? Indeed the most talented human in ages, one who is listed in the Godlike Board and has the potential to be a god. But … the faster he cultivates, the nearer is the end of his time! He will have no chance to be the biggest enemy of the demon race anymore!"
This day, the boat was nearly flying out from the vast sea; suddenly, sounds of cracking could be heard in Zhong Yue's psyche ocean as the nine demon seeds were finally breaking open, the nine demon gods … have matured!
