Legend Of The Mythological Genes Chapter 192
The black silhouette was like a tiny mountain pushing the waters aside as the eight appendages moved wildly. Blood trailed behind it, dyeing the sea water red.
A gigantic silver flying shuttle was following it from behind. The ray cannon continued firing energy beams, causing the nearby sea water to boil. All other objects in the surroundings that obstructed its path were vaporized.
11,000 meters, 12,000 meters, 13,000 meters...
One was fleeing while the other was in hot pursuit. The Yamata no Orochi and the flying shuttle continued diving into the depths of the Mariana Trench.
The gathered light beams shot out like a sword cleaving through the darkness, slicing off the thick appendages of the Yamata no Orochi.
Earlier, this Yamata no Orochi acted like the supreme world-destroying beast from the legends and was extremely imposing and ferocious. But now, it acted like a defeated dog, frenziedly fleeing away, wanting nothing more than to grow a few more appendages to increase its speed. It was also roaring in agony and pain, the sound waves traveling through the water clearly.
So what even if it was a terrifying monster? Before the pinnacle of science and technology, it was nothing but trash.
External means referred to science and technology, and internal means referred to cultivation. These two were the most common means used by interstellar humans. There was no relative superiority, but they were both means of different paths.
Before a cultivator truly matured, he or she would still be unable to resist the power of science and technology and would be dominated.
After all, there was no upper limit to the degree of power capable of being generated by science. With sufficient reserves of energy as well as materials, it wasn't impossible for a weapon created by science and technology to destroy a planet.
Currently, among one of the most terrifying weapons humanity possessed, the Planetary Annihilation Cannon was capable of destroying a small planet with a single shot. The might it possessed was terrifying to the extreme.
Unless a cultivator reached the level equal to gods and possessed an undying body, he would be nothing but trash before such a terrifying weapon born from science and technology.
Right now, he didn't care how fast the Yamata no Orochi was fleeing. Feng Lin controlled the shuttle and chased closely behind it, not willing to spare it.
This wasn't because of hatred. Feng Lin wouldn't be so obstinate as to nurse a grudge against a monster with no intelligence. The Yamata no Orochi could only blame itself for being an extremely rare existence.
There was surely a transcendent organ in it since it could be classified as a transcendent lifeform. No matter if it was alive or dead, this monster was akin to a treasure trove.
In the past, Feng Lin had already obtained a titan's heart. However, the grade of energy was too high, and he only had one titan's heart. He didn't want to do any experiments on it for fear of damaging such a precious item.
15,000 meters, 16,000 meters, 17,000 meters…
He continued pursuing and soon arrived at the 20,000 meter depth.
The water was as dark as ink. No light could penetrate through to this depth. The flying shuttle had to use special wave-positioning technology to determine and locked-on to the Yamata no Orochi.
At this moment, that monster was in an incomparably pathetic shape. The appendages it had were severed off once again, leaving only a single head.
After chasing it for so long, Feng Lin also saw many clues.
This monster was definitely an artificial genetic creature created by humans based on the legendary Yamata no Orochi's template. If it was truly the world-destroying beast, it wouldn't be so weak.
In Japanese Mythology, the Yamata no Orochi was an undying existence. Only by using special methods would one be able to kill it.
In truth, the stories stated that the divine being Susanoo had used the Sword of Totsuka to kill it.
Upon seeing that the monster only appeared strong externally, Feng Lin no longer had thoughts of playing with it. He commanded in a low voice, "Zixia, use full power and kill it."
"Yes, captain!" replied the A.I. Zixia. Many different panels on the surface of the flying shuttle opened up, revealing numerous ray cannons. All of them gathered power in an instant and blasted out a gigantic energy wave. This attack was like a solar storm, instantly causing the nearby waters to evaporate, becoming boiling steam.
The violent energy instantly locked onto the Yamata no Orochi, engulfing it as it howled in hellish pain.
The gigantic monster writhed about, its appendages convulsing violently. But gradually, it stopped moving. No signs of life emanated from it any longer.
After the light ray cannons were retracted, only a charred gigantic body could be seen in the waters. The carcass was rapidly sinking, but a robotic arm shot out from the shuttle and pulled it back into the shuttle.
Feng Lin walked over to the outer cabin and inspected the corpse. Countless sphere-shaped robots had various tools in their hands as they started to dissect the monster.
After the pale white flesh was cut open, the steam rose as a charred smell permeated the air. The monster's carcass was soon completely cut apart by military robots. Its bones were also piled up into a small mountain.
All of a sudden, the cabin lit up. A green-colored treasure pearl was dug from one of the snake heads which was the Yamata no Orochi's appendages, bathing the area with a greenish glow.
That wasn't the end yet, more treasure pearls were dug out from the other seven appendages. Each of the pearls glowed with a different-colored light, shining resplendently and flowing with light, illuminating the surroundings.
What an unexpected surprise!
Feng Lin knew that the Yamata no Orochi would surely have a transcendent organ. It was just that he didn't expect to find eight transcendent organs at one go. This was slightly beyond his expectations.
Is this a snake gall?
There are eight snake heads, so there must be eight snake galls!
Feng Lin sensed the abundance of energy within the snake gall treasure pearls. Each had a different attribute: fiery heat, icy cold...
Each treasure pearl had a unique energy attribute to them, and all of them could be considered transcendent organs, possessing unfathomable might.
After losing these eight pearls, the appendages of the Yamata no Orochi became useless. Feng Lin didn't find that pleasing to the eye and commanded the robots of the flying shuttle to handle the mess. His eyes stared fixedly at the treasure pearls as his heart stirred with excitement.
Transcendent organs were organs where the essence of transcendent creatures gathered. If he could refine that into medicine, the refined medicine would undoubtedly contain immense energy and nutrients. It would be extremely beneficial to cultivators.
If the refinement of medicine could really succeed, Feng Lin wouldn't lack genetic potions for a long time in the future.
Before this, he only had a single titan's heart. Feng Lin didn't dare to do any casual experiments on it. But now, he had a total of eight treasure pearls. He had no qualms about using some of them in an experiment. Even if one was damaged, he would still have seven of them.
This was truly an unexpected joy. Even if a few treasure pearls were damaged from his experiments, he wouldn't feel too much pain.
Feng Lin didn't hesitate. He immediately commanded the A.I. to show him the information with regards to genetic potions that were stored in the flying shuttle.
All the concoction methods and information about different genetic potions possessed by the Giant Pharmaceutical Company were recorded in the A.I.. There were over ten thousand recipes, each with different medicinal effects. There should be one that was suitable for the current him.
Also, the instruments and equipment in the flying shuttle were naturally top-notch. There was no lack of them. Feng Lin was extremely satisfied as he would be able to use them to concoct the genetic potion he wanted.
Through the holographic projection, countless recipes appeared before him, causing one's vision to dazzle.
Feng Lin wasn't so foolish as to look through them one by one. He set the parameter and told the A.I. to filter out all the irrelevant information. "Zixia, show me those recipes for genetic potions that require transcendent organs as ingredients. Also, ensure that the ingredients needed are all available in the flying shuttle's storage."
The projection shown by the A.I. kept flickering as it commenced rapid calculation and filtering. Very soon, a recipe appeared before Feng Lin.
Transcendent Holy Water!
