Incredible Insight: Cultivating Immortality at Eight, Astonishing Zhang Sanfeng - Chapter 40
Chapter 40 –Minor Causality Art
The spiritual monkey’s eyes were filled with caution. In reality, this was one of the sources of its transformation. On that day when Ning Changge triggered the spiritual storm and it was soaked in spiritual energy, it discovered two spiritual fruits. After consuming one, it had awakened its spiritual wisdom, and spiritual energy had permeated its body, strengthening its bones and muscles day by day.
Originally, it had intended to consume the second fruit, but its instincts told it that there was no need. So, it had kept it until now, treasuring it as its most precious possession. Perhaps in the future, when it found a mate or had offspring, it would offer them this treasure.
But today, it had encountered Ning Changge. This was the only thing it could offer.
It instinctively wanted to approach Ning Changge and express its gratitude. Without Ning Changge, it wouldn’t be what it was today.
Ning Changge sighed lightly, sensing the monkey’s sincerity. He accepted the spiritual fruit, and the monkey immediately danced with excitement, making Ning Changge smile involuntarily.
He spoke softly, “This spiritual fruit is indeed useful to me, so I’ll accept it. But I won’t take advantage of you. I’ll return your kindness.”
He placed the spiritual fruit into his Na Yuan Ring and then gestured for the monkey to sit down.
The monkey seemed to understand, squatting in front of Ning Changge, looking up at his hand, and Ning Changge smiled, “Since you’ve had the opportunity to help you transform, and our meeting was predestined, I don’t owe you any karma. This time, the purification of your spiritual power will further open your spiritual wisdom and strengthen your body. Your future depends on your own efforts.”
His voice resonated like a bell, entering the monkey’s mind, leaving it momentarily stunned.
In the next instant, Ning Changge lightly stroked the monkey’s head, and a surge of green spiritual power surged forth. The monkey’s soul let out a cry of surprise but quickly fell silent. It felt a vibrant force of life coursing through its body.
In the past, Ning Changge had developed the Spiritual Cleansing technique for the Seven Heroes. Today, he used it on the monkey. Moreover, the monkey’s bones and muscles were superior to humans, and it had absorbed spiritual energy. The effect far surpassed what Song Yuanqiao and the others had experienced.
As time passed, as the spiritual power continued to cleanse the monkey’s body, brown impurities gradually emerged on its skin and were instantly dissolved by the spiritual power.
The monkey’s golden fur became even more radiant, making it look like a golden monkey made of gold.
Its bones and muscles became visibly stronger, to the point where even Innate Realm martial artists might not be able to harm it. Furthermore, the monkey’s eyes became increasingly clear. It now understood things that had previously perplexed it, and its gaze towards Ning Changge grew more respectful.
After a while, Ning Changge gently moved his right hand away, and the purification of the monkey’s spiritual power was complete. It had undergone a transformation.
The monkey respectfully saluted, and this time it didn’t seem as awkward as before, almost resembling a human.
Ning Changge smiled, “This time, we’ve settled our karma …”
But before he could finish his sentence, his expression changed, and he seemed to have an insight. His mind was suddenly filled with flashes of inspiration, forming into a coherent concept.
[In your encounter with the spiritual monkey in the mountains, you initially wanted to settle your karma. However, you had an epiphany and comprehended the principles of the Book of Changes, creating the Daoist technique – Minor Causality Art!]
The Minor Causality Art allowed one to perceive karma but not manipulate it. It enabled one to adapt to the natural order, avoiding unnecessary karma, and acting in harmony with the world, ultimately achieving the path to immortality.
In the path of cultivating immortality, seeking longevity, this technique could safeguard one’s path.
Ning Changge looked at the monkey before him and calculated with his finger. He had initially planned to leave, but now he realized that there was still some karma between them. However, it was not for the present moment.
He said calmly, “You should focus on honing yourself. Don’t misuse your spiritual nature to do wrong or engage in senseless killings. If you violate the laws of nature, you will bring calamity upon yourself. I shall take my leave.”
With that, he didn’t hesitate further and controlled his sword light to soar into the sky.
The monkey watched this scene, kneeling on the ground and kowtowing in the direction of Ning Changge. It had a visible expression of loss in its eyes, and even tears could be seen.
It looked toward the Wudang halls and gradually made a determined expression.
Ning Changge also had some emotions in his heart.
Such an encounter in the mountains made him feel that in this world, all things, every little action, have their own principles. He didn’t want to disturb the karma between him and the spiritual monkey. So he simply let it be, thinking that there was no backlash in these small actions. He then let go of his worries.
He was also somewhat curious about how this karma would unfold.
The sword light descended.
Returning to the scripture chamber.
Ning Changge collected his stray thoughts, setting them aside. After all, this wasn’t a big matter and wouldn’t significantly affect his path of cultivation. Even if he completely ignored it, he could withstand it. He just wanted to let things take their course.
Now. He had something more important to do.
That was to turn the spiritual fruit offered by the spiritual monkey into a spiritual pill. Only by doing so could he maximize the medicinal power of this fruit. Spiritual fruits were rare, and he didn’t want to squander them.
“It’s just right that my Ascension Pill can’t keep up with the pace of my advancement. I might as well make the spiritual fruit the main ingredient and work out a pill formula.”
He decided to act on it. With a flash of spiritual light, the crimson spiritual fruit flew out from his Na Yuan Ring, floating in the air. Ning Changge’s eyes rotated, and he extended his spiritual consciousness to gain a deeper understanding of the nature of this spiritual fruit.
He analyzed it one by one, the knowledge he had gained from his daily readings in alchemical texts now becoming the foundation and fueling his understanding.
A day later.
[You have analyzed the nature of the Vermilion Fruit deeply, based on the Ascension Pill, combined with various alchemical theories. Using the Vermilion Fruit as the main ingredient and supplemented by other spiritual herbs such as ginseng and lingzhi, you have created the Formula of Transformation Pill!]
With the pill formula completed, Ning Changge’s eyes were filled with joy.
Without hesitation, the Mountain and River Gathering Spirit Furnace flew out of nowhere and landed steadily in front of him.
The spiritual fruit fell into it. Ning Changge formed a technique with his hand, and the pure yang true fire surged out instantly. The spiritual fire formation inside the Mountain and River Gathering Cauldron and the pure yang true fire worked together perfectly, and the liquid from the fruit was quickly refined.
There was even an extraordinary fragrance.
Ning Changge smiled faintly; he was very satisfied with the efficiency of the pure yang true fire.
His fingers moved like phantoms, and one by one, spiritual herbs flew out from his Na Yuan Ring and entered the cauldron in an orderly manner.
Up to this day.
The Lesser Alchemy Dao he created was now more perfect, and he could produce pills with ease.
With a top-notch tool like the Mountain and River Gathering Spirit Furnace and the assistance of pure yang true fire, it was even easier for him. He even had the spare capacity to use his spiritual consciousness to observe every corner of the Scripture chamber.
Three hours later.
The Mountain and River Gathering Spirit Furnace suddenly burst out with a brilliant light, and Ning Changge’s face lit up. He saw a total of twelve vermilion pills lying in it!
Transformation Pills, accomplished!
Taking a Transformation Pill, Ning Changge could feel its medicinal power surpassing that of the Ascension Pill by several times. This kind of pill was perfect for shattering the mirror.
He couldn’t help but smile knowingly; this was also considered part of his destiny.
With these pills, he could break through the Ninth Layer of Qi Refinement today!
Afterward, when combined with the Ascension Pill, it was highly likely that the tenth and even eleventh layers could be reached!
