Legend Of The Mythological Genes Chapter 58
No matter who it was, when someone suddenly came out and referred you as a master, you would definitely be stunned.
"You must surely be a genetic martial master. I've been observing you as you cleared the monsters and discovered that you are experimenting continuously with many types of genetic formulas!" The silver-haired man spoke solicitously. "Can I offer 500 star coins to buy a primeval gene module from you?"
What? There's such a good thing?
Feng Lin was puzzled.
Gene modules were virtual accessories, and one would be able to obtain them without using real money. But now, there was actually someone willing to spend 500 star coins to buy one from him?
Did this man mistake him as a genetic martial artist who specialized in genes evolution study?
Feng Lin thought it must be so.
But then again, one couldn't help but say that with his genetic equation, he was truly an innate geneticist. No wonder others would be mistaken about his identity.
Since there was such a good deal before his eyes, he naturally wouldn't miss out on it.
In any case, he had already tested out the power of all his gene modules and already knew how to evolve them. If he wanted to, he could assemble new ones anytime. Since he could use these old gene modules to exchange for real money, why not?
"Sure!" Feng Lin nodded.
"You agree?" That silver-haired man was extremely happy. He had a face filled with yearning. "Let's do the trade now then."
"What type of gene module do you want?" Feng Lin opened up his interface and showed his primeval gene modules to the silver-haired man.
The people in the surrounding all cast a glance, but they were completely stunned and started panting in disbelief. There were a total of 36 balls of light floating in the air. These were none other than 36 gene modules which represented a total of 36 genetic cultivation pathways.
How many genetic formulas did this man know?
A genetic martial master! This man is undoubtedly a genetic martial master, and he is definitely an expert among geneticists!
"I want this, this, and this. I want all of these!" At this moment, the silver-haired man felt stars dazzling his vision. He didn't know what he wanted exactly. "Master, can I buy more than one gene module at the same time?"
"Sure!" Feng Lin nodded. Selling one more meant earning one more portion of money. He was naturally willing to do so.
That silver-haired man started for a moment before joy filled his expression. His judgment was good; he actually decided to buy a total of five gene modules in one go. He bought the Storm Gene, Magma Gene, Air Cannon Gene, Blizzard Gene, and the Treant Gene.
The virtual universe was connected to the real universe. There were no such things as virtual coins. Everyone was using real money.
Feng Lin stated his bank account number, and he soon received 2,500 star coins.
The silver-haired man happily kept the gene modules he had purchased. His eyes suddenly gleamed as he appeared to ask in a seemingly casual manner. "Gene master, may I ask which basic genes did you use to assemble the Storm Gene?"
Upon hearing this question, Feng Lin glanced sideways at him. His only response was "Hehehehe".
He didn't reveal anything.
What a joke.
Gene modules were not considered anything. What was truly valuable were the genetic formulas. This man wanted the genetic formulas for 500 star coins?
Even 5,000 star coins were not enough!
Wouldn't it be an extremely foolish act if he revealed the secret?
Genetic formulas might appear simple, but it was actually something that could only be derived through countless amounts of research and development. The difficulty of creating a genetic formula was insanely high.
Airflow Gene x2 + Cloudmist Gene x3 + Moisture Gene x1 = Frost Gene
Airflow Gene x3 + Cloudmist Gene x4 + Moisture Gene x4 = Rain Gene
Many people all understood that the Airflow Gene, Cloudmist Gene, and Moisture Gene could be combined and assembled into two different sets of genes. However, only a rare few knew the following three other genetic formulas.
Airflow Gene x4 + Cloudmist Gene x2 + Moisture Gene x1 = Hurricane Gene
Airflow Gene x2 + Cloudmist Gene x5 + Moisture Gene x4 = Thunder Gene
Airflow Gene x6 + Cloudmist Gene x7 + Moisture Gene x5 = Storm Gene
As to why others didn't know that there were three additional sets of genes which could be assembled, it was because there was a saying in cultivation—strengthening brooks for no regrets.
Once one overly strengthened a gene, there would be no way to reverse the strengthening process unless one used a gene rejection technique to completely remove the awakened gene. In addition, if one used that technique, it would mean that they would forever be unable awaken that particular mythological gene again. Also, the human body couldn't withstand the usage of the gene rejection technique for too many times. In serious cases, overuse would cause one's entire set of awakened genes to breakdown as that person became crippled.
In any case, although the virtual universe was just a simulation of reality, things couldn't be created randomly without proper data to support it.
If you didn't know the actual genetic formula and randomly strengthened your genes, the virtual universe would also find it impossible to assemble the gene sets.
Hence, for the development of every new genetic formula, the experience gained from the journey of countless people's cultivation paths were the price needed. In addition, the more a gene was strengthened, the harder it would be to continue strengthening it. One needed great talent before they could do so.
An example was Feng Lin's evolution path: the Monkey Gene x10 + Stonebirth Gene x10 = Stone Monkey Gene. It looked simple on the surface, but how would the common people of the Interstellar Era who awakened these basic genes be able to strengthen them to 10 points each?
Even elite and powerful cultivators didn't discover this formula. What was the reason behind this?
The answer was very simple!
Because, both the Monkey Gene and Stonebirth Gene were the lowest-grade of all basic genes. It was normally tough to strengthen them by even three points, let alone strengthening them to ten points. This was simply outside of humanity's limits. No one would waste their free genetic points on such trash genes in any case.
It's like if a man wanted to be a giant, he can simply grow to three meters high. But can you do so?
Everyone knew that they would become a giant if they grew to three meters high. But why despite the research of so many scientists, one still wouldn't be able to grow that tall?
Sometimes, it wasn't that humans couldn't think of the answer. It was the reality that told you some things just couldn't be done.
And Feng Lin's genetic equation precisely had the ability to turn the impossible into the possible. As long as he had enough free genetic points, he could break through the restriction of talent. This was the true overwhelming advantage of genetic equation. It could deduce unknown genetic formulas and allow Feng Lin to break through as long as he had enough genetic points!
If one didn't have a high enough talent, it was impossible for them to deduce the strengthening limit of two low-grade genes and the fact that they could be combined into the Stone Monkey Gene. However, the genetic equation could precisely do this.
Those without the genetic equation could only depend on talent, or it would be impossible for them to gain so many strengthening points.
A genius compared to an idiot; things were already unfair at birth. Everything depended on one's talent. The amount of talent one had would determine how far their imaginations could stretch. Hence it was only possible for those highly talented to discover high-grade genetic formulas.
After all, not everyone would have the monstrous genetic equation. From this, one could see that Feng Lin had gained an overwhelming advantage on the pathway of genetic cultivation.
Feng Lin's laughter continued.
This silver-haired man understood that his thoughts had been seen through by Feng Lin. He blushed, and in order to hide the awkwardness on his face, he hurriedly issued a friend invitation.
"Martial master, let's add each other as friends. In the future, if you have such a good deal again, you can contact me at any time, I'll definitely buy more!"
Seeing that he had such a foolish spendthrift before his eyes, Feng Lin naturally wouldn't spare him. He nodded and accepted the friend request. A virtual id then popped up on his friend catalog "Silver-haired God of the Altair Star System!"
Feng Lin cast a strange look at the silver-haired man. One truly mustn't judge someone by his appearance.
This man appeared to be an extremely handsome individual, who would have thought that he would have such a narcissistic name.
"Martial master, I want this gene module!"
"I want this!"
"Everyone scram, I'll take the rest!"
And now, upon seeing the successful purchase of the silver-haired man, the others crowded around respectively and started to choose the gene modules they wanted to buy from Feng Lin.
Feng Lin accepted all requests and very swiftly, all thirty-six gene modules were sold completely. He earned a total of 18,000 star coins.
There were simply too many wealthy individuals around here. To think that a virtual gene accessory could be worth so much money.
Feng Lin didn't know whether to laugh or cry. He didn't expect that he would earn his first pot of gold by doing something that was akin to playing a game to him.
This was easy money; it took no effort at all.
But after he thought deeper, things made sense. The virtual universe wasn't simply just a game. It was a second world to humans that were incredibly realistic.
Since he could earn such good money here, Feng Lin even doubted his decision to go and become a geneticist intern.
No, this is wrong. He instantly cast aside his moment of doubt and hesitation and strengthened his resolve.
One couldn't do anything without money, but that didn't mean he would be able to do everything as long as he had money.
Knowledge was priceless. Knowledge was something money might not be able to buy. An example was the knowledge of a geneticist.
Only by interning in the Giant Pharmaceutical Company would he be able to further his understanding of the geneticist system, as he continued to expand his knowledge.
However, this path to money making in the virtual universe was also not bad, he wouldn't give it up completely.
He could sell the gene modules he assembled on his virtual shop. This was making use of his genetic equation to earn money, and no one would be able to learn about the existence of his genetic formulas. Simply killing two birds with a single stone.
And just when Feng Lin was prepared to continue hunting monsters for gene drops, a sounding notification suddenly rang out in his mind.
"The six hour time limit is reached. The prohibition of access is taking effect, forcibly going offline initiated!..."
The virtual universe before his eyes wavered as they transformed into endless streams of data before dissipating from his vision.
"No more time!" Feng Lin sighed in pity. He kept himself immersed in experimenting with gene combinations and unknowingly, six hours had already passed in the real world, reaching the time limit prohibition.
He couldn't accept all the friend invites sent by his 'customer' in time. His body suddenly transformed into a beam of light as he vanished completely.
"Ai, why did he suddenly leave so quickly?" Everyone had a look of astonishment and regret.
Feng Lin slowly opened his eyes and gazed at the scene outside his cabin,
The spaceship continued traveling at great speed, but now, a bright red planet could be seen before his eyes. On the surface of the planet, the undulations of green mountain ranges could be seen as the spaceship geared itself for landing.
He had arrived on Mars!
