The appearance of the human figure made Fang Xingjian reveal a hint of surprise.
However, it was not because of who the person was. Fang Xingjian had scanned the other party with his martial will earlier, so he knew that it was just a stone statue.
What Fang Xingjian was surprised was that it had been carved in his image. The entire stone statue emulated the current him, with the same face, features, and even his black hair, black robe, and bare feet. It was was him sitting cross-legged on the ground with his eyes closed.
The thing that surprised Fang Xingjian even more was that there was a line written in Chinese on the statue's chest.
"Formation Breaker Fang."
Fang Xingjian's eyes narrowed unknowingly. The other party had clearly predicted his arrival a long time ago.
What kind of ability was this? Despite a separation of an unknown period of time, the other party had forseen his arrival. Even his appearance at the moment of his arrival had been perfectly predicted. What kind of ability was this?
However, what was the other party's objective for doing this? To show off his precognition ability?
Fang Xingjian sent his martial will gushing out and instantly scanned the entire area within a range of several kilometers. There were no abnormalities. He then sent out his martial will, targeting into the inside of the stone statue.
At first glance, the inside of the stone stature was just like any other ordinary stone statue. It did not appear to be any different from the surrounding rocks.
However, Fang Xingjian revealed a strange expression.
It was unknown how long this stone statue had been on the surface of the moon. Even the words in the surroundings had been subject to all sorts of meteors and radiations from the universe. However, the stone statue appeared extremely lifelike and did not suffer from any damage. This itself was the greatest abnormality.
At the thought of this, Fang Xingjian's eyes suddenly narrowed. He increased the depth of his martial will scanning and went down into the nanometer level.
When striving for the Divine level, the requirement of the scale of one's martial will was for it to continuously go down deeper to observe the microscopic world. This trait was very popular with Divine level experts.
After observing it in greater depths, Fang Xingjian immediately detected something different.
The quality of the stone used for the entire statue was too uniform. The stone quality of every inch of the statue was almost exactly the same as each other. The stone had the same build as molecular and atomic structures.
Fang Xingjian's eyes narrowed slightly. Then at the next moment, he went in deeper again. This time around, he went down from being at the nanometer level to the picometer level.
He then discovered the difference. In almost every inch of the space, there were countless strange dots. The locations of these dots were slightly different from those of the other areas.
They were like small dots carved onto the stone. Fang Xingjian looked at the densely-packed dots inside the stone statue and wore a puzzled expression.
"These dots? What's so special about them?"
Fang Xingjian could not figure it out and went in deeper again, from the picometer to the femtometer level. This caused Fang Xingjian to go into a slight daze.
Ten femtometers would almost be the size of an atomic nucleus. Upon entering a femtometer level view, almost every atomic nucleus appeared to be surrounded by empty space. A very long distance would need to be covered before another atomic nucleus could be seen, just like in the universe's vacuum.
In such a situation, Fang Xingjian still sensed the existence of the special dots.
'These dots... Are even smaller than atomic nucleus? What are they?'
Fang Xingjian probed deeper, and his observation scale kept increasing. However, those special dots kept maintaining their original size.
Even when Fang Xingjian's martial will had reached its limits, those special dots still had not changed at all. They were still in their original size, gleaming in void space just like the stars in the universe.
However, Fang Xingjian could not probe any deeper. He had reached limits to the smallest degree of space one could reach. Any further would be the time-space domain, where time and space had integrated into one.
Based on his experience in striving to clear the Divine level, that would be the passageway leading to countless other universes. Even with his current abilities, he would not be able to pass through it and would only die after depleting all his powers.
However, even after he reached the limits of space, those special dots were still not at their limits. What did that represent?
Fang Xingjian's gaze suddenly flickered as he looked toward a dot at the very bottom.
This unique dot was 0.1 centimeters from the ground, or rather, it was 0.101 centimeters away. If one were to go down further, it would be 0.1011 centimeters.
As long as Fang Xingjian's observation scale continued to go deeper, the height of the special dot would continue to refresh. Upon reaching the limits of space, the distance would become a long series of numbers formed from 0 and 1.
Based on a certain encoding used by mankind, it would form a line in Chinese.
The content of this line had a very simple start.
'What is light?'
Fang Xingjian blinked and sensed the densely-packed special dots in the stone statue were like stars. He sat down cross-legged and started to sense the many special dots with his martial will.
More and more data concerning the special dots was detected, including the numbers for various distances. All of them were translated into sentences by Fang Xingjian.
Very soon, Fang Xingjian discovered that this was the theory behind a set of sword technique.
Then Fang Xingjian quickly discovered that this sword technique bore some resemblance to his Light Pursuit sword.
He translated the many profound theories and exquisite sword intents, and they made him increasingly engrossed with this sword technique.
After three days and three nights, Fang Xingjian's eyes closed shut and the stone statue before him had shattered, scattering onto the surface of the moon.
Fang Xingjian finally understood what this sword technique was.
'My Infiltrating Void Sword has been integrated with the profoundness of gravity while my All-Conquering Sword has been integrated with the profoundness of electromagnetic forces. My Light Pursuit Sword, on the other hand, represents the profoundness of gravity, electromagnetic forces, and strong interaction.'
Fang Xingjian let out a breath. The sword technique that was hidden in the stone statue had actually elaborated on the profoundness behind electromagnetic forces, gravity, and strong interaction. This allowed Fang Xingjian to have a deeper comprehension toward his Light Pursuit Sword.
'Gravity, electromagnetic forces, and strong interaction are all forces in the universe that can be transmitted at light speed. They are also the three powers amongst the four fundamental forces that can transmit at light speed.
'These three types of forces are transmitted through gravitons, gluons, and photons. And these three mediators themselves possess no mass.
'This... is the profoundness behind the Light Pursuit Sword.'
At the next moment, Fang Xingjian abruptly shot up to his feet and sent a sword attack tapping out. The Light Pursuit Sword burst out, and streams of sword light suddenly surged out from the surface of Fang Xingjian's body. The amount of sword light that had gushed out far surpassed the great million or ten million streams which had gushed out in the past. Sword light scattered down like sunlight, and as the myriad of sword light burst out, the surfaces within a range of several hundred meters were all covered.
It was just like sunlight shining down on the Earth, where each beam of sunlight had a prowess light sword light which could slash a person. This was too terrifying. The Light Pursuit Sword's prowess had increased by over 100 times.
Right now, the Light Pursuit Sword would slash out with zero mass and be disseminated through mediators with zero mass—gravitons, gluons, and photons. As a result, each sword attack would travel at light speed, leaving behind only pure destructive forces. Simultaneously, they also allowed for both macroscopic and microscopic views.
After sensing the sword technique's destructive force, Fang Xingjian drew the Light Pursuit sword intents back into his body.
Looking down at the moon under his feet, Fang Xingjian could not help but feel a little surprised. He had not expected that he would be able to further raise the Light Pursuit Sword's profoundness this time around, integrating three of the four fundamental forces—gravity, electromagnetic forces, and strong interaction—into it.
