The Favored Son Of Heaven Chapter 564 2

A huge room without any splendid decor.
This was a room with a cold metallic feeling. In the center of the room, Qin Fen didnt see the person he thought he would see. Instead, there was a huge liquid nutrient tank with a human brain floating in it. The brain was protected by a special container with thousands of thin wires attached to it.
There is no one in this room! It was only the brain in that special container in the nutrient tank. It was the only thing exuding a trace of life aura.
"Dont stand at the door, just come in."
The loudspeaker in the room sounded again. A row of computer signals shone softly along with the sound wave.
Qin Fen stepped into the room and looked strangely at the brain in the nutrient tank. He initially thought that there would be a powerful martial artist in this room.
Nowadays, in a society where martial strength reigned supreme, almost every chief who held a high authority in their forces were strong martial artists. However, this center in front of him, which obviously held the highest authority in the base, was not occupied by a powerful martial artist. It could even be said that it had zero combat power as it was just a human brain.
Although academics would compare with each other in terms of academic achievements, the Founding Society obviously did not belong to pure academia. They built a lot of killing machines here. They followed the cruelest rule of survival those who were useful survived, while those who were useless died.
Chen Feiyu and the batches of experimental subjects back then were living examples of this rule. The leader for such an organization, or at least for this base, turned out to be just a brain.
There wasnt any place for them to sit down in the cold room. Qin Fen and Chen Feiyu walked into the room and stood quietly. They couldnt help but observe the surroundings curiously. There was a large number of computers here, and all kinds of data were constantly changing on the screen.
"This base is my body." The brain broke the silence of the room, "So, you are Qin Fen? And you are Chen Feiyu? Long time no see."
The atmosphere of the room stiffened up at that instant.
Chen Feiyu looked at the brain with a murderous look. Not just anyone in the Founding Society knew about Chen Feiyu, only the personnel who conducted the experiment and the top leaders of the Founding Society knew about him! Anyone who had participated in that experiment would be Chen Feiyus enemies!
In this world, except for a few people like Qin Fen, only his enemies in the Founding Society would know the name of Chen Feiyu.
"Reading the data of your vigorous blood flow and the change in the room pressure due to your strength, you are angry now. Im sorry. With my current state, I can only make speculations like this based on data." The brain controlled the loudspeakers in the room to continue with its aged voice, "Chen Feiyu, we will talk about your case later. Before we discuss your case, I think it is necessary for me to tell you a story. If you dont think that Im dragging the time, then theres no harm for you to listen for a bit."
The walls of the room suddenly opened. Two chairs, a table, and some chilled drinks on it were pushed out automatically from inside of the wall. It gave off a feeling of hospitality to an old friend.
Qin Fen sat in the seat and looked quietly at the brain in front of him. The light in the room was dimmed at this time, and a huge projection was projected onto the smooth wall in front of Qin Fen.
It was society before the new technology movement. At that time, society had reached the peak of technology development. However, at the same time there was a great hidden worry of the depletion of energy and resources.
Petroleum was like the blood of Earth. In the era of rapid development, this black blood of Earth was almost dried up. Human experimented with various alternative resources, like the controllable nuclear fusion, solar energy, wind power, and even the methane ice buried deep under the sea they were as good as petroleum. These alternatives became the main research subjects of human society at that time.
One day, there was suddenly a new kind of energy in our society. The new energy was inexhaustible, very environmentally friendly and it was truly safe to be used. People called it plant energy.
"Yes, the plant energy!"
The aged voice continued with the story with a hint of excitement, "The plant energy; plants are also considered lives. This lively energy went far beyond humans imagination. The energy resources problem of the human society seemed to be solved with the discovery of this plant energy"
The aged voice suddenly turned cold, "It seemed to be solved everyone thought the problem was solved. Has anyone ever thought of where wheat and corn came from? The Earth is only so big, and we had yet to enter the space era by that time. If we wanted to supply energy to the whole world, then humans would starve to death. We would be starved to death more than once!"
"Ordinary people didnt know how life energy was exchanged. Naturally, they didnt know how much food resources would be consumed." The aged voice sighed, "However, there was somebody who knew about it. The person who invented it knew about the problem very well."
Qin Fen looked quietly at the images on the screen. He could faintly feel that the aged voice was not going to simply talk about some useless old stories.
"Humans are like children, and scientists are like parents who love and spoil their children." The aged voice sounded a little helpless, "Facing the ever-demanding children, the scientists who were just like the loving parents kept on inventing various techniques and inventions to satisfy their children. This time, a scholar from a scientific group had once again opened a Pandoras box filled with sweetness just to meet the childrens needs for energy and life resources."
"As we couldnt enter the space era, we couldnt open new agricultural lands on other planets. So, this group of scientists thought of a crazy idea, which was to develop a multidimensional space."
Multidimensional space? Qin Fen raised his eyebrows. This dimension theory was indeed a very famous theory.
"Zero-dimensional space has no length, width, nor height; its just a simple point. One-dimensional space has only length. Two-dimensional space is a flat world with only length and width. A three-dimensional world is a stereoscopic world with length, width, and height; its the very world that we see through our naked eyes. A four-dimensional space has a time axis on top of the three original length, width, and height axes; the time axis is an axis with imaginary numbers. According to Albert Einsteins theory of relativity, the three-dimensional space we face in our lives plus the time axis constituted the so-called four-dimensional space."
Qin Fen just nodded and didnt speak. This brain who lived through many years told them about the dimension theory, which was not at all an unfamiliar theory for a high school graduate of one of the top three high schools in Asia. The brain was probably explaining this for Chen Feiyus sake.
"A dimension is a collection. The most basic element of it is the point. A collection of points will form a line plane. Time is formed by the movement of the three dimensions. This would be the best way for humans to explain the fourth dimension. To put it simply, the fifth dimension is formed by the movement of the fourth dimension." The aged voice paused a little, "When humans captured the time axis of the four-dimensional space the Pandoras box the five-dimensional space was opened by the hands of scientists"
Qin Fen frowned slightly. Was that the monster I saw that day in the Saturns forest existing within the five-dimensional space?
"Young man, I know what you are thinking, but things are not the way you think." The aged voice stopped again. The projected image showed a huge land of plains and mountains. Nothing was there except for lands and mountain ranges.
"This was a brand new dimension opened by humans. Inside was a virgin land that was completely pure and waiting to be developed" The aged voice was excited, "However, the human society couldnt wait for a complete growth cycle of wheat fields because we were critically lack of energy resources. Therefore, this scientific group chose to open the Pandoras Box. Scientists had laid their hands on the time axis, they had greatly accelerated the time in this vast dimension! When a person lives in there for a long time, he will find that only a very short while has passed in the world on this side. In this way"
Qin Fen looked at the barren land shown through the projection. It quickly grew into a vast, lush green wheat field with the work of the automated planters and seeders. They didnt need to spray any pesticides. It was a borderless green vegetable field; it was a borderless orchard!
A large amount of food was transported to the human world. They were then turned into the energy that humans needed, and they played a role in every corner of the society. An energy crisis that had almost destroyed the world had been solved yet again by this scientific group!
Science and technology started to develop rapidly again. The discovery of Atlantis ruins, the advent of the human near-space era; history was being shown rapidly through the images.
"What a wonderful Pandoras Box." The aged voice sighed with rich emotion, "How nice it would be if everything just went on that way. However, the scientists had neglected one thing or I should say they realized it but they didnt think that it would be that serious Pandoras dimension had a much faster time than our current dimension, so as time went on"
"Evolution" Qin Fen blurted out his guess as he looked at the projected images. Plant-feeding insects grew on the plants eventually. This was an unavoidable fact. The growth of various plants had eventually given birth to other lives.
As various insects began to appear, there would naturally be new evolutions happening. This kind of evolution didnt seem terrifying, but it couldnt be completely eliminated. Humans couldnt afford to stop as they gradually started getting a higher demand for energy at that time.
A kind of insect appeared in front of Qin Fen. Its shape looked a bit like a bee, but it didnt have wings like a bee. This weird bee didnt feed on pollen or nectar, it fed on other insects!
It was carnivorous and aggressive!
"The time inside was changing too fast. The observation satellites that were sent would be out of service within a very short period of time. The scientific group couldnt keep a close monitor of the situation inside. The only thing they could do was to build all kinds of powerful automated attacking machines and spray all types of pesticides in order to eliminate those insects."
Qin Fen shook his head several times. If pesticides could actually kill insects, human society would have long been free from insects. Food chains would be destroyed without insects, animals would be gone, and humans might have died out as well.
"Yes, you are right in shaking your head." The aged voice said with a bit of self-mockery, "You must know: the scientific groups actually knew about it as well, so they began to think about making remedial measures."
The weird bee shown in the projected image had already grown to the size and height of an ordinary human. Especially the huge Queen Bee, which had grown into a size of three men combined!
In the evolution of this new dimension, it was that kind of bee-like insect instead of human beings that had grown.
"They had a relatively strong build, but they stood no chance against humans. As long as the scientists controlled their scientific and technological development, these creatures shouldnt have been able to do anything big."
"Yes, you are still right for shaking your head this time. The shortcoming of scientists is that we trusted the power of science too much. We have ignored the power of the physical body and the power of evolution."
The projection on the wall continued with the story. The initial offspring produced by the Queen Bee was not much different from the ordinary bee, but as she consumed different kinds of food and, being unable to utilize the power of science, her body evolved again. What she then produced was not an ordinary monster that looked like a bee.
The Queen Bee ate a fish this time, and then she ate a human-like gorilla. The next batch of bee eggs hatched. It was a creature with the base body structure of a standing gorilla, it had the ability of a bee, and was covered with fish scales.
"Fish-scaled gorilla!" Qin Fen shouted out the name of the creature in the projected image in surprise. This was the mutated creature that he had fought in the Golden Triangle on that day!
The Queen Bee in the projection died. The new Queen Bee she produced had the ability to walk upright, but she had a huge ovipositor on her posterior. She had six upper limbs that looked like human arms, but those limbs were not as strong as a humans body. She had strong legs that supported her in running. She had bees antennas which could sense the danger at a distance and allowed her to avoid it in time.
The process of evolution was originally slow but the process of evolution was happening rapidly within this dimension with special time flow. Generation after generation of Queen Bees died, and more generations were born and evolved.
They grew from reptiles to creatures that could walk upright. They had all kinds of different appearances. They could also mate with each other to produce the same offspring, while some of them had no fertility. All of them shared a common characteristic: to serve their one and only Queen Bee.
"The scientific group started to areally feel fear by that time, because the physical strength of the creatures went beyond their imagination. They started to attack the automated united harvesting and sowing machines, and began to destroy the pesticide sprayers that were built to eliminate them."
"As a result, the scientific group had made a decision! A decapitation strike! All they needed to do was to kill this one and only Queen Bee."
On the projection screen, it was shown that a group of well-equipped mercenaries with excellent martial strength went into this world.
Qin Fen watched and could be sure that he was not wrong with one of his previous guesses. The guess was there was no alien! All of these were just by-products produced by human scientists during the process of helping fellow human beings.
