4529 The Era Under Heaven’s Control
‘We got it all wrong,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as he sighed inwardly.
After browsing through the Void Elder’s memories, he learned that the cultivators in the Outer Boundary and the Myriad Worlds had traveled down the wrong path after the gap in history. They should have comprehended the laws to the paramount stage and the Four Daos of Heaven and Earth to the seventh stage before becoming advanced Supreme Gods. If they had done so, after surviving the special Heavenly Tribulation and becoming an advanced Supreme God, they would directly become level-seven supreme powerhouses after breaking into the realm of supreme powerhouses. One had to remember that the Saints from the Outer Boundary and the World supreme powerhouses from the Myriad Worlds were only level-six supreme powerhouses.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian thought of something and exclaimed, “That’s not right! Cultivators in this era have to face the Heavenly Tribulation once every one thousand years. However, based on the Void Elder’s memories, before the gap in history, the Heavenly Tribulation would only come once every 10,000 years. Moreover, based on his experience, the progression of difficulty for the Heavenly Tribulation back then was two levels weaker than the one now…”
Duan Ling Tian could not help but gasp as he wondered if the laws of heaven and earth in the past had changed to what it was now.
‘Did heaven change the laws?’ Duan Ling Tian wondered inwardly.
This was the only explanation that made sense to him. After comparing the situation of this era and the past era, he felt that heaven was deliberately making things difficult for cultivators of this era to become level-seven supreme powerhouses to retain control over the situation.
‘Did the gap in history happen because heaven felt threatened by the Void Elder? Is that why cultivators after the gap were led down the wrong path? With this, there’ll be no level-seven supreme powerhouses or anyone stronger to threaten heaven…’
Duan Ling Tian sighed when he thought about the bleak situation cultivators of this era were in.

‘How many intermediate Supreme Gods in this era are capable of comprehending a law to the paramount stage and one of the Four Daos of Heaven and Earth to the seventh stage even if everyone knows the truth? After all, the threat of the Heavenly Tribulation that comes once in a thousand years is too frightening…’
Even if everyone was aware of the truth, it would be difficult for intermediate Supreme Gods to comprehend a law to the paramount stage and one of the Four Daos of Heaven and Earth to the seventh stage. After all, they were under the threat of the Heavenly Tribulation. Faced with such a daunting feat and their survival, they would naturally choose their survival and quickly enter the realm of advanced Supreme Gods.
‘No wonder the Void Elder said heaven is indifferent to its creations…’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself with a sigh. Then, his eyes flashed with a hint of gratitude as he continued thinking to himself, ‘Fortunately, I’ve yet to enter the realm of supreme powerhouses. Otherwise, it would’ve been impossible for me to become a level-seven supreme powerhouse!’
Even before the gap in history, after entering the realm of supreme powerhouses, there was no supreme powerhouse who rose from the bottom levels to the seventh level. After all, after comprehending a law to the paramount stage and one of the Four Daos of Heaven and Earth to the seventh stage, even a level-six supreme powerhouse could not survive the special Heavenly Tribulation. One had to remember that the strength of the Heavenly Tribulation corresponded with one’s cultivation base, and one could only imagine how powerful the Heavenly Tribulation of supreme powerhouses was.
‘Unlike supreme powerhouses, at least advanced Supreme Gods still have a chance of surviving that special Heavenly Tribulation. Since I have the Void Elder’s memories, it should be easier for me to survive that Heavenly Tribulation…’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as his eyes lit up, ‘Moreover, there’s a wealth of knowledge in his memories. There’s his knowledge of the Sword Dao and various laws… With his knowledge, It’s only a matter of time before I achieve what he did with the Sword Dao and the laws!’
Duan Ling Tian grew even more excited when he thought about this.
After all, the Void Elder had comprehended the Sword Dao to the ninth stage, the Mastery Dao and the Limitless Dao to the eighth stage; and the law of space, the law of life, and the law of death to the paramount stage.
“Apart from the Devouring Dao, the Void Elder comprehended all the other Daos to such high levels! No wonder even heaven felt threatened by him! Based on his memories, it seems like he became a level-nine supreme powerhouse because he also comprehended the Mastery Dao and the Limitless Dao to the ninth stage, and the law of life and the law of death to the paramount stage. He speculated that he would be able to reach the peak if he comprehended the Mastery Dao or the Limitless Dao to the ninth stage. If he comprehended both of them to the ninth stage, he speculated that he might be equal to heaven! At that time, he would not have been affected by the destruction of heaven and earth…”
Duan Ling Tian was once again shocked by how powerful the Void Elder was. Under the threat of heaven, the other party still managed to leave behind all his memories.
‘He hopes to find a successor who can defy heaven in his stead… Although there were extraordinary prodigies who entered the Realm of Origin previously, they did not meet his requirements. Based on his memories, he wanted someone who has comprehended the Sword Dao to the seventh stage at least and also comprehended the law of space, the law of life, or the law of death to the paramount stage. Even I barely met his requirements, but it seemed like he was forced to pick me because this is his final chance…’
Duan Ling Tian shook his head. It was almost impossible to find someone who met the Void Elder’s requirements in this era. Although his master, Feng Qing Yang, had comprehended the Sword Dao to the seventh stage, the law his master comprehended did not meet the Void Elder’s requirements.
‘On top of his other requirements, he only wanted someone who comprehends the law of space, the law of life, or the law of death to the paramount stage. No wonder he had a hard time finding his successor…’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself with a sigh.
‘I’ll spend my remaining time here studying his memories before I continue to integrate my law of space with my Sword Dao. Hopefully, I’ll be able to transform my Sword Dao into the Spatial Sword Dao…’
According to the Void Elder, he had used all his Divine Energy and all of his precious possessions to extend the longevity of the Realm of Origin. As such, Duan Ling Tian did not think there was a need for him to search the Realm of Origin any longer.
All of sudden, Duan Ling Tian’s eyes burned with the flames of fury as the figure of the demi Saint of the Tourmaline Holy City’s Duan clan appeared in his mind. He muttered under his breath, “Sister Wei, I might be able to avenge you soon…”
Duan Ling Tian felt responsible for Duan You Wei’s death. After all, she would not have met her enemies if he did not request for her to accompany him back to the God Defying World.
