Cultivation Chat Group Chapter 1053

Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue taught Song Shuhang using the ‘illusory reality’, looking into the various principles and aspects of the technique!
At this moment, in Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue’s ancient tomb world, there were tens of [Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue] flying around, showing Shuhang the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ from various angles. The scene was really nice to see.
Meanwhile, Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue began to explain some tips regarding the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ for Song Shuhang to take note of.
Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue was truly worthy of being a great senior worshiped by the fellow daoists in the group. His knowledge was extremely rich; possessing ancient and modern knowledge, he was simply one of those geniuses you could rely on as walking libraries.
He explained the principles behind the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ really well, allowing Song Shuhang to easily understand them.
Moreover, Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue even gave him a mathematical formula for the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯.
Song Shuhang would only need to add the volume of the treasured saber Broken Tyrant, the area of the layer of light that appeared when the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ was used, his weight, his height, his body width, and some other data into the formula Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue had given him to calculate the most correct and suitable aerodynamic pose he should use when operating the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯!
When they listened to Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue talking about the formula, Song Shuhang and Su Clan’s Sixteen were utterly shocked.
The two looked at each other.
Is Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue even talking about riding a flying saber? Or is he giving a mathematics and physics lecture?
The formula simply left me speechless.
Heavens, the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ could be learned like this?
Heavens, so cultivators could really train like this?
Heavens, could mathematics and physics knowledge really be used like this?
Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue’s discussion of the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ once again broadened Song Shuhang’s pitiful outlook on cultivation.
Who said that math was useless?
Useless my ass.
If math isn’t studied properly, even cultivating becomes impossible!
Song Shuhang felt that the combination of cultivation and modern knowledge had already become a major trend. Not only had the heavenly tribulation modernized, but even cultivators were advancing with the times.
In the future, if one didn’t study hard, it would be difficult for them to make progress, even if they were to possess the luck of a protagonist.
Imagine someone accidentally falling off a cliff and acquiring some rare cultivation book like those protagonists in novels. After opening it, it was possible that they would find the book filled with various complex mathematical formulas, physics knowledge, energy conversion theories, and so on, possibly causing them to be confused.
It was possible that in the future, even true qi circulation routes would be formulated. If one didn’t study math well and they were to calculate wrongly, that would cause their true qi circulation to be wrong, possibly causing their internal energy to go berserk.
Mediocre students could only shiver in trepidation!
After Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue finished with his explanation, he said with a slight smile, “How about it? Little friend Shuhang, Little Sixteen, were you able to memorize the things I just said?”
…He felt great satisfaction at the sight of the dumbfounded expressions on Song Shuhang and Su Clan’s Sixteen’s faces—this was exactly what he wanted.
“I’ve memorized all of it,” Song Shuhang said. After acquiring this formula, the difficulty of studying the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ had been reduced by over ten times. He had been quite lucky! Even if his posture while practicing the technique in a while was bad, it didn’t matter.
“Even if I want to forget it, I am unable to,” Su Clan’s Sixteen said. She was just casually listening, and since Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue didn’t prevent her, it meant that he was fine with her learning the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯. So, she kept listening.
But now, the principles of the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ and Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue’s formula for it were like poison that was planted into her mind, impossible to get rid of.
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue asked, “Then, little friend Shuhang, what are your thoughts?”
He hoped that Song Shuhang was not only able to memorize his explanation, but was also able to infer from the examples and comprehend things on his own.
“My thoughts?” Song Shuhang held his chin as he looked at the sky filled with [Fairy Sixth Cultivator of True Virtue], and then said seriously, “Hm, I feel that it’s really nice to look at. They seem like mermaids swimming around, making the scene much better than seeing those ornamental fish inside glass tanks.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen: “…”
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue: “…”
Believe it or not, this Venerable might just chop you to pieces.
Song Shuhang said, “Ahem, I’ve given it some thought, and I feel like using data and the formula to calculate the flying posture is way more accurate than having the person come up a flying posture based on their experience. The combination of modern science and cultivation has already become a great trend. Thinking about it, even a good number of seniors in the ‘Nine Provinces Number One Group’ have been conducting similar experiments recently. Cultivation and science are really suited for each other!”
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue nodded as he said, “Not too bad. Now, little friend Shuhang, begin your performa— practice while there is still time!”
The corners of Song Shuhang’s mouth twitched.
After taking a deep breath, he adjusted his mental and true qi state, drawing out his treasured saber Broken Tyrant once again and raising it horizontally.
Song Shuhang lightly said, “❮Blade Dragging Technique❯!”
Innate true yuan and saber intent poured into the treasured saber Broken Tyrant at the same time.
The saber intent condensed, forming the saber intent armor again and wrapping around Broken Tyrant.
At the same time, a layer of light took form on the treasured saber. The layer of light of the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ was shaped like a pointed shuttle. It wrapped around the saber intent armor and had the five formation effects of ‘wind, water, snow, fire, and earth evasion’ engraved on it.
Song Shuhang’s right hand tightly held the ‘saber hilt’, which was also the saber intent armor’s shin guard area.
…Actually, up until this step, Song Shuhang looked rather cool.
From the perspective of onlookers, Song Shuhang first raised the saber and held it horizontally. He shouted ‘❮Blade Dragging Technique❯’, which led to some light appearing on the saber, with the light then turning into a set of steel armor. The entire transformation process looked quite cool.
But, this was where the cool scene ended.
In the next moment, the treasured saber Broken Tyrant suddenly rose to the sky. Song Shuhang grabbed the hilt of the saber with his lone arm, and was dragged into the sky.
With the saber in front… or, more accurately, with the suit of armor in front of him, Song Shuhang grabbed at the foot of the armor as he was dragged into the sky.
The scene was… especially comical.
“Heavens, why is it so fast?” Song Shuhang was startled. The starting speed of the ‘Blade Dragging Technique’ was completely unreasonable. The speed instantly went to its highest without any buffer in between at all.
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue’s called out, “Posture! Adjust your posture, use the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯’s formula, and adjust your posture while considering your weight, body shape, and the area of the treasured saber Broken Tyrant’s layer of light.”
“It’s too fast, I didn’t have the time to adjust anything,” Song Shuhang said bitterly.
Afterward, Song Shuhang thought about Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue’s formula in his mind, his brain rapidly working on calculating the most suitable angle for him.
While the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ was operating, Song Shuhang’s posture constantly adjusted to assume the most suitable position. Just as he got himself to achieve the most suitable posture, the speed of the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ increased once again!
Song Shuhang thought, Although it’s a bit difficult to position myself properly, it’s quite good as a means of escape. If I’m surrounded by people, then I only have to use Senior Seven’s ❮Tyrannical Saber Flight❯ to power my way through their encirclement, and then switch to the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ to escape in an instant. After breaking out of the encirclement, I can even come with the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ and switch to the ❮Tyrannical Saber Flight❯ to rush at and kill people.
However, the chance of actually having to use such an escape method was quite small. After all, he still had an even greater option: going into his Inner World.
…Unless the enemy had set up a trap, surrounding him and hindering him from entering his Inner World, but the chance of such a situation happening was too small. After all, those who had the power of hindering him from entering the Inner World would likely be those that could kill him with a single finger.
Song Shuhang made a circle in the air and then steadily descended back to the ground.
Shuhang kept the treasured saber Broken Tyrant as he said, “Although the posture sucks, flying with it feels pretty good. It flies steadily and really quickly. The only drawback is that I kept on feeling like I was about to fall down. I kept on worrying about ending up losing my grip on the hilt.”
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue slightly smiled as he said, “Truly not bad, little friend Shuhang, you’re really quite talented in the ‘saber path’.”
Su Clan’s Sixteen waver her phone. “I took photos of you while you were using the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯. Do you want me to send them to you? Or do you want me to send them to the group?”
“Let me have a look first.” Song Shuhang moved beside Su Clan’s Sixteen––his posture couldn’t be said to have been good at all. If it was too terrible, it would be better not to have everyone see it.
Su Clan’s Sixteen opened her photo library and showed the photos she took.
Sixteen’s shots were really good. Perhaps it was related to her learning art, but she was always able to subconsciously capture the best shots.
The Song Shuhang she had captured on her phone looked really handsome.
From the photos, it didn’t seem like Song Shuhang was being dragged away by a saber. It felt as though he was simply walking in the air while waving around the armored Broken Tyrant.
…Is this really me?
Is this the difference between the photos captured by professional photographers and ordinary people?
“You can send them to the group,” Song Shuhang said while laughing. Let the seniors in the Nine Provinces Number One Group see how handsome I look while using the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯.
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue also leaned over to take a look, and then he turned silent. “…”
If this photo wasn’t photoshopped, then what kind of beautification filter was used?
Su Clan’s Sixteen stretched her hand a little, and sent the photos of Song Shuhang practicing the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ to the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
True Monarch Northern River: “Shuhang is still practicing saber riding techniques? What move is this one?”
Fairy Lychee: “It should be the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯ Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue was talking about. It’s the saber technique that has the saber at the front and the user at the back.”
Frice Reckless Mad Saber: “It can’t be, if it’s the ❮Blade Dragging Technique❯, little friend Shuhang couldn’t possibly look this cool. I feel like there’s something wrong going on.”
In the next moment, Frice Reckless Mad Saber sent a photo.
He had used Photoshop to turn the armored Broken Tyrant in Song Shuhang’s hands into a huge squared hammer with lightning. The angle of the photo had also been rotated…
