Chapter 967: Bestial consciousness
"What's inside?" asked Lin Feng.
"I don't know. I didn't go in." said Qiong Qi shaking his head.
"Are you scared to die?" said Lin Feng laughing. Surprisingly, Qiong Qi hadn't gone inside. A Zun level beast had probably written that so only animals would go in.
"Bullshit, you're humiliating me. I don't care about a cave made by a futile animal." shouted Qiong Qi furiously. An animal had created that cave with mysterious marks so he was probably very strong. Nobody knew how dangerous it could get inside.
"Let's go in then." said Lin Feng smiling.
"Let me go first then." said Qiong Qi coldly glancing at Lin Feng. Even though he knew Lin Feng was provoking him, he couldn't help but go inside because of his pride.
Lin Feng followed him. They arrived in front of the wall with the mysterious marks.
Qiong Qi put his paws on the wall, lights appeared and rumblings sounds spread in the air. The wall moved aside and a terrifying deadly Qi emerged.
Lin Feng looked inside, it was extremely vast but still very dark. There were even corpses on the ground.
Many people had died inside, very strong cultivators. Otherwise, they wouldn't have managed to open the door using the mysterious marks.
Those strong cultivators were dead though. Lin Feng and Qiong Qi glanced at each other.
"Should we go in or not?" asked Lin Feng. Those strong cultivators had died inside. Wasn't it too dangerous for a Tian level beast and a cultivator of the second Tian Qi layer?
"Since we're here already, it would be a pity not to go further." said Qiong Qi. "Get ready to use your illusion technique. I also have some protection spells. If something feels wrong, we can leave immediately."
"He has some secret protection spells which he has hidden from me…?" thought Lin Feng.
"I will help you, but I don't care about a futile Zun level beast." said Qiong Qi while roaring.
Lin Feng laughed and got ready to use Ling Long's holy celestial Qi just in case.
"Let's go in." said Lin Feng. He was still extremely curious. It was an ancient cave in the middle of the Huang Sea, maybe there were precious treasures inside. Qiong Qi was right, they had to go in otherwise Lin Feng couldn't survive.
"There has been some very powerful corrosive energies in here." said Qiong Qi looking at the skeletons. It almost seemed like they had been polished clean.
"Many have also turned into ashes." said Lin Feng.
"Look over there." said Qiong Qi showing him a corpse. That corpse still had flesh but it was rotting.
"Desolate energy…" Lin Feng was surprised. It seemed like that person had died from the Qi of the Huang Sea.
Lin Feng and Qiong Qi found out that there were fewer skeletons as they walked further in. There were even more ashes.
"Look over there." said Qiong Qi with a serious tone. Lin Feng turned his head and saw a gigantic skeleton with wings.
"That's a beast." Had that beast written the words at the entrance? Why would that beast have died then?
"A blue jade phosphorus mahoraga." said Qiong Qi. That beast had wings and looked like a dragon. Its bones shone like phosphorus.
"Is it very strong?" asked Lin Feng.
"It is very strong, a Zun level beast, but how did it die here?" Qiong Qi was surprised. They continued walking but the air was becoming even worse.
"Desolate Qi." Lin Feng saw some very powerful desolate Qi.
"Empty Space Bestial Illusion Technique!" shouted Lin Feng suddenly. Qiong Qi and Lin Feng were instantly surrounded by snow. That Qi was coming from everywhere. Luckily, it didn't have time to reach them.
That desolate Qi then disappeared again as if it had never appeared.
"That Qi can sense our Qi. So when we're in this small world, it can't anymore. That would explain why it disappeared." said Qiong Qi. He also had time to see where the Qi came from. It came from a hole.
"Bestial consciousness!" Qiong Qi was astounded. He understood why the Zun level beast had died.
"Bestial consciousness? What's that?" asked Lin Feng.
"After cultivators break through to the Tian Qi layer, they can use their godly awareness and condense it. In the case of beasts, it's different, they rely on bestial consciousness which contains their most fundamental strength. You've probably never seen really strong animals. When they condense their bestial consciousness, it can be terrifying. That mahoraga absorbed desolate Qi with his bestial consciousness." said Qiong Qi.
Humans and animals were different. Humans used godly awareness and pure Qi. Animals used bestial Qi and bestial consciousness.
Lin Feng understood a little bit. There were some holes in the bones of the mahoraga. "Can animals have several bestial consciousness?"
"Indeed. The stronger they are, the more bestial consciousness they can have. That mahoraga absorbed almost all the desolate Qi of the cave, that's insane." said Qiong Qi nodding.
"Lin Feng, stop using your illusion spell, I'll release animal Qi and we'll see what it does then." said Qiong Qi. Lin Feng nodded and did so with the utmost vigilance.
Qiong Qi released bestial Qi which enveloped both him and Lin Feng. The desolate Qi didn't appear again. As expected, it didn't attack animals, it only attacked humans.
"Unfortunately, not many animals come here so no animal has found this place." whispered Lin Feng. Lin Feng and Qiong Qi continued on.
They walked towards that gigantic mahoraga. Lin Feng noticed strange marks.
The skeleton was shining, it was bluish-green like jade. It kept twinkling, as an illusion appeared.
That's a person's silhouette filled with bestial energies. Those eyes looked cruel and sanguinary.
That was probably the human form of the mahoraga.
Back then, in the restricted area of the Zi Jin Mountain, Lin Feng had encountered such an animal and it was a Zun level beast. He had died but had left his legacy behind.
PMG Chapter 968
Chapter 968: Insane Creatures Think Alike
"Young boy, you're lucky to be able to meet me." said the animal.
"Humans always consider themselves as better beings than animals, but I don't agree. That desolate Qi can destroy human beings. No human can swallow desolate Qi. However, I did it. It became my own energy. I don't fear the Huang Sea because it can't affect me at all. I can even swim in that sea. Apart from me, those who can cross that sea are human Zun cultivators who rely on their own strength to cross it. but they can't manage it like me." said the Zun level beast in a despising way.
"As expected, he's insane. Imagine that, he can swallow the desolate Qi of the Huang Sea." whispered Qiong Qi. "But he's just a futile beast. Even I don't dare act so arrogant."
Lin Feng glanced at Qiong Qi. Did he want to die there?
Lin Feng looked at the Zun level beast.
"I could absorb all the Qi, but it disrupted my energies. My bestial consciousness stopped functioning properly as I brought about my own destruction." said the mahoraga becoming more gentle. He knew that he had made a mistake.
"The desolate Qi destroyed my bestial consciousness. I lost my self-awareness but I need someone to transmit my knowledge to, especially what I learnt about the desolate Qi." said the beast proudly.
"But, in the end, I managed to swallow the desolate Qi and couldn't control it. Therefore, my offspring will have to empty its bestial consciousness to absorb the desolate Qi so that it doesn't mix with anything else."
"Insane, what an insane ability." thought Qiong Qi. Absorbing the desolate Qi to replace one's own Qi?! He was insane. No wonder he had died there. But Qiong Qi also thought that the beast had done more than others because he had dared to do what others hadn't. He had actually absorbed the desolate Qi and made it his own.
Giving up one's own energies and replacing them with the desolate Qi… That beast had died because he had played with incredibly dangerous powers.
That Qi wasn't easy to absorb. A strong Zun level beast had died because of it even.
"Thank me for I am giving you an unprecedented opportunity. If you succeed, you'll manage to use the desolate Qi and could destroy many people. Of course, if your bestial consciousness isn't strong enough, don't even try it. If you can't or don't dare, remember to pass on my memories to someone else." said the voice weakly before it disappeared.
The content of the beast's bestial consciousness slowly started to flow out. It was as if it was going to disappear.
"You and that beast are quite similar." Lin Feng said to Qiong Qi. The mahoraga, even after dying, didn't want the world to forget about him. He wanted to transmit his knowledge, an unprecedented opportunity.
"Bullshit, I have nothing to do with that insane beast." said Qiong Qi swearing. "But I have to admit that if what he said is possible, it would be great. Bestial consciousness can be used by talented beasts. If human beings could also use godly awareness to absorb the desolate Qi from the sea, they wouldn't need to be scared of crossing it either."
Lin Feng nodded. He understood. If the mahoraga had managed to absorb the desolate Qi, he didn't need to fear the sea anymore.
After staying silent for a few minutes, Lin Feng asked, "How can I use bestial consciousness? Can bestial consciousness only be used by animals?"
"Why do you ask?" asked Qiong Qi surprised.
"I can use bestial strength, so can I use bestial consciousness?" Lin Feng figured.
Qiong Qi stared at Lin Feng. How could he have forgotten that Lin Feng had Ling Long's precious Qi, on top of that, it was holy celestial energy.
"Are you talking about practicing animal cultivation or are you talking about swallowing desolate energies?" asked Qiong Qi with a serious tone. Lin Feng was insane as well it seemed.
Lin Feng nodded and said, "Ling Long's Qi is a holy celestial energy. Her bestial consciousness must be incredibly powerful, it is not polluted at all which means that I wouldn't need to replace that Qi with the desolate Qi, I could directly absorb it."
"Ling Long's holy celestial Qi is incredibly powerful." whispered Qiong Qi. Could Lin Feng do that? Besides, Qiong Qi had an animal body, it was easier for him to swallow the desolate Qi.
"How can you be sure that the desolate energy won't corrode your body though and then destroy your pure Qi? If your Qi stops working properly, you'll die just like him."
"Animal energies and human energies are two seperate things. He was a beast and swallowed the desolate energy which affected his other bestial energies. I'm different, there is nothing else in my bestial consciousness and it has nothing to do with my pure Qi. If I try to use the desolate energy and it affects my body, then I will just have to put it back in my bestial consciousness and stop using it. It won't affect my human body." replied Lin Feng. "My actual problem is whether I can use bestial consciousness or not."
Bestial consciousness could be used by powerful beasts, like godly awareness with human beings. Even though he had Ling Long's holy celestial Qi, could he use bestial consciousness?
Qiong Qi looked at Lin Feng but didn't say anything.
"Tell me, is it possible or not?" asked Lin Feng. If Lin Feng couldn't use bestial consciousness, Qiong Qi would have already insulted him.
Qiong Qi took a deep breath and said, "Human beings and animals all have a soul and a spirit created by the Earth and sky. Their bodies are different though. Human beings practice cultivation in their own way. Animals have their ways too which they inherit from birth. A human being shouldn't be able to use animal strength, but for you, it's different because you have Xue Ling Long's energies. She gave you holy celestial Qi so you have a very pure animal Qi. If your bestial energy is powerful enough, you should be able to condense animal energies and use bestial consciousness."
"What you mean to say is that it's possible, right?" said Lin Feng with sharp lights in his eyes.
"People have done that in the past. You wouldn't be the first one!" said Qiong Qi confirming Lin Feng's statement.
PMG Chapter 969
Chapter 969: Using Bestial consciousness
"I can practice animal cultivation!" Lin Feng's eyes twinkled with sharp lights. He had Meng Qing's holy celestial Qi and should be able to use bestial consciousness and practice animal cultivation skills and techniques.
"How do I practice animal cultivation and use bestial consciousness?" asked Lin Feng.
"Prepare yourself to receive my thoughts." said Qiong Qi. Lin Feng close his eyes and a bright light penetrated into his forehead, between his eyes. Suddenly, he had an animal's memories.
Lin Feng calmly received those transmissions. After a long time, he opened his eyes. To practice animal cultivation, he had to circulate animal strength everywhere in his body. Then, he had to use pure animal energy to open his bestial consciousness.
Lin Feng looked at the mahoraga. His desolate Qi had almost completely disappeared. Lin Feng grabbed his skeleton. It was a very powerful Zun level beast so his skeleton was a precious treasure.
Lin Feng sat down cross-legged in the cave started to cultivate.
Qiong Qi looked at Lin Feng and then left the cave. Lin Feng could try if he wished. If Lin Feng managed to use Ling Long's holy celestial energy to open his bestial consciousness, then he would benefit greatly.
Lin Feng released Ling Long's holy celestial energy. Although, Lin Feng could only release a little bit of it, it was still enough for him to use the Empty Space Bestial Illusion Technique to create the snowy path illusion. If he could control it in its entirety, he would be able to carry out incredibly powerful bestial attacks.
However, what he was able to use wasn't enough to open his bestial consciousness.
He slowly released Ling Long's holy celestial Qi, even though he couldn't do it too fast, Lin Feng wasn't in a hurry.
Half a month later, Lin Feng was still in the cave. His holy celestial Qi could fill up the whole cave now. Lin Feng's entire body was surrounded by holy celestial bestial Qi. If other people had seen Lin Feng right now, they would have thought that he was a beast appearing in his human form.
Between Lin Feng's eyes, a sharp bestial energy had appeared. That was where his godly awareness usually came from, but now, that was where his bestial consciousness was.
He looked like a beast practicing cultivation. The pure snow Qi turned into a vortex as he opened his bestial consciousness.
Bestial Qi rolled in the air and whistling sounds spread in the cave.
Lin Feng's body started shaking. He grinded his teeth and made great efforts to control Ling Long's holy celestial energy. The vortex between his eyes turned into an animal awareness and absorbed the strength from his beastial Qi with his third eye.
"Come out!" shouted Lin Feng furiously. Pure celestial lights appeared and they were dazzling. Lin Feng could now control Ling Long's holy celestial Qi at a new level.
He controlled the energy to open his bestial consciousness. The atmosphere in the cave became calm again. He used Ling Long's holy celestial energy to absorb all the strength which had turned into holy celestial bestial consciousness. The bestial consciousness was calmly floating around him.
Ling Long's energy was amongst the purest in the world. It could also be used to absorb other bestial energies. Lin Feng didn't forget what the mahoraga had taught him though. He couldn't pollute his bestial consciousness with desolate Qi.
Lin Feng started opening his bestial consciousness, but he didn't stop circulating his holy celestial Qi.
After a few days, Lin Feng couldn't control it any better than before, so he stopped practicing it. Seated cross-legged, he opened his eyes and now looked like a beast even more.
He also slowly closed his third eye.
Qiong Qi came back inside the cave from the island. Lin Feng had really opened his bestial consciousness. He was just lucky that Ling Long had given him her holy celestial Qi though!
"You're really going to try?" asked Qiong Qi.
"Yes." nodded Lin Feng. He stood up and left the cave. After all that, Lin Feng had to try.
Qiong Qi looked serious. He followed Lin Feng as they quickly arrived on the beach. It really wasn't pleasant to be next to that Qi again.
"Stay far away, otherwise your bestial consciousness won't stand it." said Qiong Qi.
Lin Feng nodded and opened his third eye. A vortex appeared as Lin Feng slowly started absorbing the Qi of the sea using his third eye.
It was painful at first. It was as if the desolate Qi was trying to destroy Lin Feng's bestial consciousness, but Ling Long's holy celestial bestial Qi was extremely solid. That desolate Qi stayed inside and circulated quickly.
Qiong Qi stared at Lin Feng nervously. Lin Feng opened his eyes again and nodded at Qiong Qi, "I can swallow it!"
Qiong Qi was amazed and nodded in return. It was a very dangerous but beneficial ability.
Lin Feng moved closer to the sea. His bestial consciousness roared as it absorbed the desolate Qi in an insane way. The desolate Qi seemed like it was going to tear apart Lin Feng's bestial consciousness.
"Ordinary animals would die doing that. The mahoraga could only do it because he was extremely strong and his bestial consciousness was very solid." thought Lin Feng. However, the mahoraga had swallowed too much and died trying.
Ling Long's holy celestial Qi was releasing a powerful strength which protected the bestial consciousness and prevented the desolate Qi from getting too aggressive.
Lin Feng stopped and closed his bestial consciousness. Qiong Qi heard Lin Feng's bestial roar. Lin Feng was now using his bestial consciousness to replace his bestial strength with the desolate Qi.
If Lin Feng managed to completely replace his animal strength with the desolate Qi, he would never need to fear the Huang Sea again. He could cross it fearlessly.
Lin Feng remained motionless, almost like he was in a trance.
Qiong Qi observed him. Lin Feng was as insane as the mahoraga.
After a very long time, Lin Feng released some desolate Qi. Qiong Qi was astonished and even opened his huge mouth in awe. Lin Feng could now release desolate Qi!
PMG Chapter 970
Chapter 970: Fearless on the Huang Sea
Qiong Qi didn't need to give Lin Feng anymore advice, Lin Feng knew what to do. Lin Feng wasn't going to play with his own life carelessly. He had put his pure Qi, Buddha, and demonic energies aside in his body so they could remain calm. They couldn't mix with the desolate Qi, just like the bestial Qi. At the same time, the desolate Qi invaded his whole body and it was very painful. However, Lin Feng's flesh was strong and he could withstand the pain.
Lin Feng remained motionless as he continued practicing cultivation. He used his spirit and his Tian Xuan stone to understand the desolate Qi even more now. Slowly, his body could withstand the pain much better.
Lin Feng did that for ten days. He slowly absorbed the desolate Qi and made it flow everywhere inside his body. Slowly, his bestial consciousness had its own strength, the strength of the desolate Qi. It could stay there without any problems, it seemed. He still had the same issue as before though, it was difficult for his corporeal body to mix with the desolate Qi.
Lin Feng discovered that the more he understood the desolate Qi with his bestial consciousness, the better his corporeal body could manage the pain. It was strange.
Therefore, the more he understood the desolate Qi, the more his body could resist the energy. It was like his body didn't consider the desolate Qi as a foreign body anymore.
However, it was increasingly more difficult to understand the desolate energy with each step. Understanding external energies naturally wasn't easy to do because they originated from outside their own body, and thus, different from the energies a cultivator or a beast already possessed.
Lin Feng continued absorbing desolate Qi and continued walking towards the beach. He was getting so closer to the sea now.
Qiong Qi stopped. Although Lin Feng could tolerate the energy, Qiong Qi couldn't.
Qiong Qi looked at Lin Feng with some admiration.
"What an incredible guy. He actually succeeded." thought Qiong Qi. He thought about the mahoraga again. Bestial consciousness was everywhere in a beast's body so if they absorbed the desolate Qi, they died because it invaded their whole body. Lin Feng was different, his bestial consciousness was just a small part of his body. The most important fact was Lin Feng still had his godly awareness. If someday Lin Feng's bestial consciousness couldn't absorb desolate Qi anymore and it spilled over, the consequences would be lethal.
Seven days later, Lin Feng was already five hundred meters away from the sea.
Half a month later, Lin Feng was only two hundred meters away from the sea. The wind made his clothes flutter.
One month later, Lin Feng had both legs in the water and remain straight like a mountain. The desolate Qi was blowing against his body but it didn't affect him.
Qiong Qi was still sitting there motionlessly watching Lin Feng. Lin Feng had succeeded, he no longer feared the Huang Sea anymore.
At that moment, Lin Feng opened his eyes. He was knee deep in the water. He released desolate Qi which was exactly the same as the Qi of the Huang Sea.
"I can take a few steps in, but I still can't cross the sea I think. In the depths of the sea, the desolate energy is even more powerful." thought Lin Feng sighing. Emperor Shi and Emperor Yu were going to start their recruitment process three months later. If Lin Feng didn't hurry, he would miss the recruitment process.
Lin Ferng took a few quick steps into the sea, which was now up to his belly.
"What are you doing?" asked Qiong Qi alarmed.
"Don't worry, I can do it." said Lin Feng without turning around. He continued walking into the sea. Very quickly, he had water up to his neck.
"Bastard!" Lin Feng had almost completely submerged himself in the sea. Qiong Qi was terribly nervous. If Lin Feng couldn't stand it, he would die without the time to regret.
Lin Feng had completely disappeared in the water now. Qiong Qi couldn't even sense Lin Feng's Qi anymore, it was as if he had never been there.
He looked at the sea and was still extremely nervous. Had Lin Feng died? Even most Zun cultivators didn't actually go that deep into the sea.
After a long time, Qiong Qi still couldn't see Lin Feng. Had something happened to him?!
"Boom!" At that moment, one kilometer away, a silhouette emerged out of the water and rose up in the air. He was absorbing incredible amounts of desolate Qi with his third eye.
Qiong Qi looked at Lin Feng and then looked at his third eye.
Then, Lin Feng closed his third eye, turned around and looked at Qiong Qi. Lin Feng looked like an animal.
"Emperor, I can swim in the sea as I wish now. I can absorb as much desolate Qi as I want and can hold it in my bestial consciousness." said Lin Feng smiling like an animal. So many Zun cultivators would be envious. Lin Feng had done it!
"Idiot, be careful not to harm your bestial consciousness!" said Qiong Qi.
"Don't worry. The more I absorb, the stronger my holy celestial Qi becomes." shouted Lin Feng excitedly. Desolate Qi was his now. He was fearless.
"It's Ling Long's holy celestial spirit." Qiong Qi thought. If Lin Feng didn't have Ling Long's holy celestial Qi, he wouldn't have been able to do that. Lin Feng had managed to do what the mahoraga hadn't.
Qiong Qi watched as Lin Feng jumped into the sea again. He disappeared in the water and suddenly appeared somewhere else again. He was swimming in the sea, fearlessly.
Qiong Qi didn't need to worry about Lin Feng anymore.
