It took a very long time for the Starsoul World to be perfected. The semi-perpetual bio-optic brain had been on for the entire time, filling the Starsoul World with energy and matter, and perfecting the rules of the Starsoul World with a massive amount of Source Form, all as Lu Zhiyu had programmed.
The Starsoul World would eventually match the level that Maria’s World had achieved centuries ago. The amount of matter and Source Form consumed in order to alter the world’s rules was astronomical.
“It is not easy to perfect a world. A world with perfect rules requires energy, matter, the perfection of rules, and the creation of a life system. I cannot perfect the entire krynnspace single-handedly. That would be impossible,” said Lu Zhiyu. He was standing on the edge of the floating-space city, the Capital of God. An inverted, more than 100-meter-thick translucent crystallized layer was in the sky over the Capital of God. The projections were turned off. Therefore, instead of the sun and clouds, one could see the astral world directly on the layer.
“That is the world created by God!”
“I heard it’s much larger than The Capital of God!”
“By how much?”
“I don’t know. Anyway, it’s huge. Lord Eva told me that!”
Below was the enormous Starsoul World. Crowds of tiny fairies gathered around the edges of the Capital of God, gazing at the gigantic Starsoul World. The huge world was wrapped by the spherical bitwall, rotating and changing gradually and beautifully in silence. The crowds jabbered excitedly.
Apart from tiny fairies, there were also Great Fairies who were transformed from tiny fairies. They were level four supernatural creatures. From elfin, adorable fairies hiding behind leaves and petals, they transformed into adult-sized, human-like creatures. Fairies were, in essence, similar to demons. They were both Source Form half-incorporeal creatures. At the moment of leveling up, they returned to the flower buds on top of the Ancient Tree of Fairies, and a beautiful creature was born as the flower blossomed.
Among the flowers and greens, they vanished with a glimmer, became a part of the huge Ancient Tree of Fairies, and emerged again from a different branch. Plants grew and withered as they moved their fingertips. They could be seen in the corridors of palaces in the Capital of God, laughing and frolicking in sheer fabrics.
The fairies would flutter their four wings, dancing lightly in the sky and among the divine pillars. They brought life into the Capital of God, so that it was no longer an ice-cold coffin floating in the astral world.
When they became Great Fairies, they reported to Eva voluntarily. Eva would grant them permission to manage part of the internal affairs and authorities of the Capital of God. In a way, the Capital of God was a miniature world, and fairies were the race of the Capital of God.
While the fairies stared at the Starsoul World in shock, Lu Zhiyu looked outside of the Starsoul World. The vast, boundless astral world, dark and enormous. Dark, empty, and void were the main themes of the krynnspace. The worlds and bitwalls were only a small fraction of it.
The scroll opened up an entrance to another dimension. Lu Zhiyu still did not know the size of the krynnspace constructed by the dimensional interval that he had circled randomly before.
“Didn’t we agree that you would wait in the garden? Here’s the new dessert I tried out. I prepared this personally, and I used the Soul Flower of Frost grown by several Great Fairies!” Eva appeared beside Lu Zhiyu all of a sudden. She followed Lu Zhiyu’s gaze, looking into the deep astral world, but not into the Starsoul World.
“How lonely! Empty, with nothing within!” Eva said aloud what Lu Zhiyu was thinking.
Lu Zhiyu nodded and said, “Maybe I could create a special astral world creature. It could evolve by absorbing energy, matter, and Source Form, transforming into something similar to a world. The moment it attains maturity, it shall die. And it will then become the embryo for a new world, developing the krynnspace automatically. It shall control the semi-perpetual bio-optic brain and will become the spokesman of the astral world. It may take thousands of years, or hundreds of thousands of years, to become the embryo of a new world. And it may take an even longer time to become a perfected world. Nevertheless, it is much better than creating worlds one by one all by myself. Filling this krynnspace all by myself is impossible.”
Lu Zhiyu broke into a smile of great expectation. He said, “Such a world is a world with infinite possibilities. Who could be created within? Only such a krynnspace and world could be so beautiful and so full of surprises. One could not guess what will result and what the future may look like.”
Eva looked to Lu Zhiyu. He was always lost in his own thoughts and talked to himself often. However, every thought and word of the creator could affect the entire world and the fates of countless lives.
But this time was different. It was a topic related to the entire astral world and the fate of the entire krynnspace. This might be something impacting thousands of worlds and the future.
“And when can we see such an astral world?”
“Um. It could be a long wait. Maybe hundreds of thousands of years, or even longer! The idea for such astral world creatures only entered my mind at this moment.”
“That’s alright. Time is probably the only luxury we have.”
There was an existence. No one knew where it came from or for what purpose it was created. It traveled across the vast astral world with no end. It devoured chaos and all things. It was the devourer of everything in the world, as well as the creator of the world and everything within.
It was without intelligence, purpose, thought, or feeling. It seemed its sole goal was to devour everything, swallow everything, eat up everything inside the astral world. Be it enormous bitwall worlds, or even gods.
It could devour even time and space. Once devoured, the proof of a world’s existence was completely eaten up, disappeared from the krynnspace, as if it never existed. It was the origin of every existence and the end of a world.
When it grew to the size of a continent, or a world, and could no longer take in anything, it would die and become the seed for a new world. Everything would be created and born from the seed, as if everything it devoured before was reborn from its dead body, like the circle of life.
From sources with unknown origins, when a world approached the dusk of its doom, the larva of the Chaos Worms would be reborn from the grave of worlds. However, no one had seen it before, as no one could escape from a world collapsing and narrowing rapidly on its doomsday. — Excerpt from the essay of the great level eight arcanist of the Arcane Kingdom, Mientte Ambrose.
