Chapter 1475 The best teaching material: Song Shuhang

At this time, the most trusted senior of the Nine Provinces Number One Group-Sage Monarch Seventh Cultivator of True Virtuesaid, “This modified cultivation technique… is very interesting.” Sage Monarch Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue had a unique sight. This was because he had once been the holder of the Nine Virtues Phoenix Saber, and thus his vision was far superior to that of ordinary Sage Monarchs.

Sage Monarch Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said, “After this cultivation technique was modified, a lot of different tricks were added to it. Look carefully, the contents of this portion of the cultivation technique are similar to those of Cheng Lin’s Self-Healing Technique that Fellow Daoist Tyrant Flood Dragon once described to me. There’s also this part, which is a small trick to strengthen one’s body that Sage Monarch Winter Melon talked about during the Profound Sages’ discussion at the end of the Immortal Feast. This other part is also giving me an extremely strange feeling, and it seems to have something to do with the materialization of the principles of the world that appeared in my mind.”

His words immediately attracted the attention of the fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group.

Sage Monarch Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue continued, “I’m afraid that little friend Song Shuhang stuffed all the laws, principles, and information that he has recently come in contact with into his cultivation technique when he was in that state of enlightenment. To fix this technique, we’ll have to remove some parts.”

Senior Yellow Mountain said, “I feel that simply discarding parts of the technique wouldn’t be as good as making it such that there are ‘levels’ to the technique, and practicing it will have one go through these levels one by one as if climbing up a ladder.”

Sage Monarch Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue pondered for a while, then nodded. “Fellow Daoist Yellow Mountain’s proposal is very good. Everyone can participate in the modification of this cultivation technique. This kind of experience will prove very useful for when you create your own cultivation techniques in the future.” Su Clan’s Sixteen asked, “Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue, shouldn’t we first figure out the reason why Shuhang ended up blowing up?”

Senior White put down his teacup, and said, “The main reason should be that he modified the cultivation technique by too large a margin. After that, he skipped four or five steps and went straight to the final stage. If we were to use an analogy, it would be like building a house… Then, just as the building of the second floor was finished, you skip the third and fourth floors, going straight for the fifth floor. The empty floors with nothing but air would ultimately cause the house to collapse.”

The White Dragon, who had transformed into an earring and hung on Su Clan’s Sixteen’s left ear, softly whispered, “It’s a case of cultivation deviation.”

“So that’s the case.” Song Shuhang squeezed his chin. “I feel like I died unjustly.”

Things went south when he practiced the cultivation technique in his sleep, resulting in his body exploding

Usually, such a plot was something that only the villains of some martial arts novels were qualified to enjoy.

But reality was often more bizarre than fiction.

Senior White said, “Shuhang, after we revise the cultivation technique, you can test it out again.”

Soft Feather raised her hand, and asked, “Senior White, what if there is still a problem with the revised technique, and Senior Song explodes again?” “…” Song Shuhang.

They hadn’t even started, yet Soft Feather had already planted a flag for him.

However, when it came to his safety, it was the right choice to think about countermeasures for failure in advance.

The resurrection gold coin was now under a cooldown period of 10 days.

If he were to die, he would die for real.

“Don’t worry. I’ve already considered this problem.” Senior White took a sip of the immortal tea, and said, “We can just use a clone.”

Shuhang had also learned a clone technique.

Similar to Senior White’s innate skill, the death of Song Shuhang’s clone would not affect the main body. The only thing that would take place would be the memories of the clone getting transmitted to the main body.

However, whenever Song Shuhang’s clone died, the main body would experience the same pain as the clone.

Senior White said, “With the secret clone technique, he can use the clone to try out the modified cultivation technique. If there is an accident, it will only be his clone that would blow up.”

“Right, the clone!” Song Shuhang’s eyes lit up.

Then, he let out another long sigh. Now, he was even more convinced that his death earlier had been a great injustice.

Doudou, who was still biting on his arm, used the secret sound transmission technique and said, (It seems you died in vain.]

“…” Song Shuhang.

Doudou, are you still not going to let go?

Song Shuhang’s modified (Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique) became the subject of discussion of the fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group. Everyone discussed and researched this modified cultivation technique.

After discussing until the evening, the (Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique) Revised Version 1.0 finally saw the light.

At this time, the little Senior White was holding a small bun in his hands and nibbling on it.

Immortal Fairy Bie Xue was sitting right beside him, and all the small buns that he had been eating were prepared by her. After the Immortal Feast, Fairy Bie Xue decided to drop


Senior White said, “Now, this cultivation technique shouldn’t have any big problems.”

Then, he stretched out his hand and started writing in the air.

He wrote the contents of the (Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique) Revised Version 1.0, and the words eventually turned into golden runes.

These runes began to spin around in the shape of a circle.

After all of the runes had revolved by an entire cycle, Senior White nodded. “The preliminary test went well. Shuhang, you can bring out your clone and test the technique.” “Got it.” Song Shuhang willed it, and Song Shuhang Two condensed and appeared beside him.

“Good evening, Seniors.” Song Shuhang Two cupped his hands in greeting.

(For a moment, I thought that your clone would also have a Doudou hanging from his arm, how disappointing,] Doudou said while still biting on Song Shuhang’s arm.

Doudou still hadn’t given up!

“…” Song Shuhang.

Song Shuhang Two sat cross-legged and started to circulate the (Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique) Revised Version 1.0. Since Song Shuhang had also witnessed the revision process, he had already memorized the contents of the modified cultivation technique.

Soon, the (Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique) Revised Version 1.0 completed one cycle in the clone’s body.

“Success, there weren’t any problems,” Song Shuhang said happily. The clone did not explode.

Sage Monarch Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue advised, “Don’t be in such a hurry, have it circulate for another cycle and observe the changes. Successfully completing the first cycle only means that there are no problems with the structure of the cultivation technique. However, there might still be some small problems hidden deeper within. These small problems magnify with the number of times the cultivation technique is circulated, and eventually, those small problems become big ones.”

As a result, Song Shuhang Two continued to circulate the revised version of the cultivation technique.

Three cycles later…

Song Shuhang Two’s eyes widened, and he spewed a mouthful of blood.

Song Shuhang said, “Something went wrong!”

Northern River’s Loose Cultivator asked, “Where was the problem? Did you record the data?”

Sage Monarch Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said, “I’ve got all of the data with me. Some problems arose after two and a half cycles. Then, in the third cycle, the problem was magnified, causing the clone to suffer internal injuries.” He had paid attention to every detail of the whole process of Song Shuhang’s practice.

Venerable Yellow Mountain said, “Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue has found the problem. Let’s take a closer look.”

“It turns out that creating a cultivation technique is so troublesome!” Soft Feather rubbed her eyes.

Now, she admired her dad even more. After all, Venerable Spirit Butterfly had created all the cultivation techniques of the Spirit Butterfly Island on his own.

She could only wonder how many failures her dad had experienced, and how much effort he had put in. After giving it some thought, she planned on giving that sheet to her dad as a gift as soon as she returned home.

Northern River’s Loose Cultivator exclaimed, “Creating the basic structure of a cultivation technique can be done with spirit stones and the accumulation of knowledge. It is at the part where the prototype is transformed into a proper cultivation technique that hundreds of trials and tests are needed. During this period, one moment of carelessness could cause a practitioner’s internal energy to go berserk. In this world, not everyone is like Song Shuhang, who has a clone that can be used to test out a cultivation technique.”

Soft Feather suggested, “Senior Song, I suddenly got an idea. In the future, if you’re lacking in resources, you could become a cultivation technique tester. You can specialize in testing those unfinished cultivation techniques and finding problems in them.” Soft Feather’s way of thinking was simply different from others. “Good idea.” Song Shuhang nodded. This was a good way to earn spiritual stones.

Recently, Song Shuhang’s way of thinking was also very much abnormal.

He lacked spirit stones, and he owed Senior White a huge debt.

Moreover, he would have to take care of the Time City in the future-only the heavens knew how many spirit stones he would need to maintain the city operational.

At the same time, Song Shuhang activated the healing spell on the ‘Defiant Whale Warrior’s Glove’, and used it on the clone to heal its injuries.

More than one hour later.

With the concerted efforts of the fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group, the (Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique) Revised Version 2.0 came to light.

Song Shuhang’s clone sat down cross-legged, closed his eyes, and circulated the second version of the revised cultivation technique.

One cycle, two cycles, three cycles…

It was much better than the last time, and there was no problem even after three consecutive cycles.

Four cycles, five cycles…

Sage Monarch Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue solemnly said, “Fall back!”

The fellow daoists that were close to the clone quickly retreated.


Fresh blood spattered.

During the fifth cycle, Song Shuhang exploded again.

Since it was a clone, Song Shuhang Two simply turned into light particles and disappeared.

There wasn’t a bloody scene this time.

“Why did it explode again?” Northern River’s Loose Cultivator rubbed his brows. He felt that there were no problems with the ‘second revision’ of the cultivation technique, so why did it explode?

Sage Monarch Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue explained. “As the second version of the cultivation technique began to circulate, after every cycle, a core inside little friend Shuhang would reach its limit. He only has four cores at this time, so the first four cycles went well. But when he reached the fifth cycle, he exploded due to the lack of a ‘core’.”

Venerable Yellow Mountain frowned. “Our thinking is not right… In the entire world of cultivation, all cultivation techniques are based on the assumption that there is only one core. We haven’t come into contact with a cultivation technique for someone like little friend Shuhang, who has multiple cores. As such, even if we modified the cultivation technique, we subconsciously took our old experiences into account.”

“Experience and knowledge are precious, but sometimes, our experiences become what hinders us.” Senior White sipped his tea slightly and smiled.

Song Shuhang was getting the feeling that Senior White and Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue were making use of this opportunity to lecture the fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group.

And he was the teaching material for this lecture.
