Elite Mages’ Academy - Chapter 614
Everything in the projection was light, a light that filled the sky and every corner. It was blue and shockingly intense, and yet beautiful at the same time.
Of course, that was not the main point; the main point was that Xiao Lin did not see where he was initially. After rubbing his eyes, he found the clues the second time, and his face grew even more interested.
After a long time, he pointed at the projection speechlessly and looking at Bell, said, “That’s me?”
“If it wasn’t you, it couldn’t possibly be me.” Bell rolled her eyes.
“But this…” Xiao Lin was a bit stunned, as he did not know what words to use to describe that strange scene. After a moment he said strangely, “I turned into the sun? And I was a blue sun?!”
In the projection, it was already impossible to discern any trace of Xiao Lin. The guy who was constantly glowing in a blue light could only vaguely be made out, but the source of the light appeared in a sphere. Just like Xiao Lin described, he was like a blue human sun, emitting unlimited light and heat.
“Have you heard of G.o.d?” Bell’s tone turned lighter.
“The G.o.d? Or do you mean something like Poseidon? I just met him during the examination,” Xiao Lin said casually.
“Do you know why Poseidon is called a G.o.d?” Bell raised her head, her eyes containing a trace of something. This time she sighed, answering herself, “I know that in Dawn Academy, no, in the eyes of most people in the academies, a G.o.d just means someone that’s a lot stronger.”
Xiao Lin shrugged, neither denying it nor agreeing with it. To some level, he agreed with that saying. For instance, Poseidon from the legends still seemed to be very strong, but that was just when it came to Xiao Lin’s perspective. Xiao Lin believed that if the ones who fought Poseidon were the Gold-ranked graduates, or even someone at Legend rank, Poseidon would only be able to run.
Bell saw through his thoughts as she continued, “On Planet Norma, there are people who can increase their strength to being Legend-ranked. As for how strong that is, let me describe it this way. If they used their full strength, the world would end. However, even those people can only be called false G.o.ds.”
Xiao Lin furrowed his eyebrows. “Are they all second to G.o.d?”
Bell said, “That’s right, and not only that. They can’t call themselves true G.o.ds. Even though the Normese can’t give this a scientific explanation, they mostly answer this based on their own experiences. However, a small number of people from Earth have earnestly researched this.”
“Then what are the results?”
“Initially, it was the academy from England. The initial research was more centered around the philosophy of idealism and materialism. After all, they even discovered Planet Norma, so what about the existence of G.o.d? The Europeans are much more pa.s.sionate about that question than us.” Bell left the lounge as she talked, and Xiao Lin followed.
“Initially, there were many conflicting opinions. Everyone had countless questions, such as if G.o.d existed, then what did G.o.d look like? What was the standard for a G.o.d? Could the G.o.ds of different worlds be compared? Would G.o.d from Earth still be the G.o.d of Planet Norma…”
With her clear voice ringing, Bell had already walked past the corridors in the library, and slowly walked past the bookshelves that were full of books, and they soon arrived at the restricted area from the last time. However, this time, after opening the door, Bell ignored the memory crystals around them and headed straight to the deepest area.
After that, Xiao Lin realized that there was another little door in the deepest part of the area. On the handle of the door were various complicated magical arrays. He looked at Bell who had been talking to herself, and finally asked, “What’s inside?”
“Inside is evidence that G.o.d exists. The real G.o.d is different from the G.o.d we speak about. No matter if it’s Earth or Planet Norma; the true G.o.d is much different from what we think.” Bell’s expression was once again lighter as she blinked. “This is something Dawn Academy managed to record a long time ago. It’s a G.o.d that is already nearing death. After that, the recording was sealed forever. I never planned on bringing you here, but…”
After a moment, Bell said in frustration, “Basically, I think that you should look at it.”
Bell’s vague words invoked Xiao Lin’s curiosity. Looking into the unknown would always be man’s greatest wish, and with the strange words that Poseidon had said to him, Xiao Lin really wanted to look into it.
He touched the door. The surface of the door was smooth as jade, and it had a faint heat to it. It was obvious that the highest levels of defenses had been added to the door. Just as he was about to ask how it was opened, the defensive arrays suddenly emitted an intense glow. Xiao Lin’s face paled, as he knew the defensive array had been activated.
However, Xiao Lin did not even have the chance to speak because he was suddenly sucked in by the light from the array, vanishing on the spot.
Bell still had a strange expression and was a little shocked, but she seemed like her thoughts were confirmed as she mumbled to herself, “My guess was right. This defensive array absolutely restricts regular people, but Xiao Lin actually managed to pa.s.s through.”
Xiao Lin had no way of listening to Bell’s explanation. When he woke up again, he was in an empty s.p.a.ce. When memory crystals were activated, they would pull the user into a virtual s.p.a.ce before reconstructing the scene.
That was why Xiao Lin quickly calmed down. After making sure he did not have any injuries, he relaxed. He understood that he just needed to watch the recording until the end.
Bell said that this was a recording of a true G.o.d, so Xiao Lin started to antic.i.p.ate it.
The virtual s.p.a.ce was an unlimited darkness, and there was no light or sound. The wait lasted for over ten minutes before the darkness was suddenly filled by an unending source of light.
Xiao Lin shut his eyes, and when he reopened them, the darkness had disappeared. In his vision was just a large planet, a planet that was emitting a deep red glow, quietly floating in s.p.a.ce.
Since it was a virtual recording, Xiao Lin did not feel the temperature or energy from it, but just looking at it shook Xiao Lin to his core.
It was like he was looking at a star from a close distance.
