as a golden pagoda that was crisscrossed with golden chains.
The pagoda thrust upward, up from Tang Jie's body into the sky and the unseeable vastness beyond.

This was the Heaven-Earth Bridge Tang Jie had built with that golden energy.

Every person's Heaven-Earth Bridge was actually a recreation.
As its purpose was to link to the heavens and earth and harness their energy, most people elected to create a simple passage.

Perhaps because of his preparation and his excellent constitution, Tang Jie had absorbed far more of the golden energy than he had anticipated, so he had the leeway to make a very special Heaven-Earth Bridge: the Heaven-Reaching Pagoda.

The form of the Heaven-Reaching Pagoda was based on that of the Pagoda-Bearing Heavenly King, Li Jing, from his original world.
As for the chains, they were used for stabilization.
The reason for this was that the energy he had released had shot into the sky and was still going, causing his pagoda bridge to sway.
Thus, Tang Jie had been forced to use the golden energy to create chains to stabilize the tower.

This energy was his mind, and as it soared up, it broke through the blessed land, broke through the Domain Astral Winds, broke through the Rosecloud Domain, and arrived in the vast sea of stars.
Countless motes of light twinkled in the distance, and the resplendent light of treasures drifted about.

Tang Jie knew that this was the Boundless Sea of Stars.

This was no illusion, but a region that really existed somewhere in the depths of the infinite void.

When a cultivator charged at Mortal Shedding, their energy would link with the heavens and earth and their mind would plumb the depths of the void.
So long as one's energy vein was long enough, one could reach this place.
The energy would serve as a rope, tying the mind to this place, thus completing the final step.

Thus, no matter where one was, so long as there was spiritual energy, one could use the power in one's body to harness the power of the world, allowing for the use of powerful spell arts.
Only then could one be considered a true Immortal cultivator.

But the Boundless Sea of Stars was not the terminus of the Heaven-Earth Bridge.
If one's energy vein was even longer, it could keep going deeper into the Boundless Sea of Stars and see countless resplendent treasure lights.
These were real treasure lights, divine artifacts naturally formed from the immense power of the world over the eons in the sea of stars.

If one's mind could settle here, and if one's luck was good, one might be able to lock onto one such treasure.
In the future, if one was able to reach a certain level, one could utilize this treasure light.
And if one was so fortunate as to venture into the sea of stars, one could use the treasure light as a beacon and seek out this divine artifact.

But this still was not the end of the Heaven-Earth Bridge.

These divine weapons were naught but ordinary items in Tang Jie's eyes, unable to draw his attention.
His mind continued forward as if it would never stop.

As he passed through that dazzling region, a haze appeared before him.

In this haze, Tang Jie saw an enormous law wheel, simple and unadorned, imbued with a timeworn bleakness, brimming with an immense and enigmatic majesty.

The Heavenly Dao Law Wheel!

Search Hosted Novel for the original.

Tang Jie's heart fiercely pulsed.

Compared to that brief glimpse from when he was in front of the Heavenly Dao Stele, Tang Jie had a much clearer view this time.

It was so vast that it seemed to encompass the entire world, as if it held the entire universe.
Something this enormous should have already been beyond the ability of the physical eye to observe, just like how one couldn't observe an entire mountain while on top of it.

But Tang Jie could see it.
He felt the vastness of the Heavenly Dao Law Wheel and could clearly see it in its entirety.

It was like a giant gear clock.
Its outermost edge had countless gears while its center had twelve giant needles that pointed in twelve different directions.
Each direction was associated with a character, but these characters were too blurry to see clearly.
And down below, a giant pendulum swung back and forth.

Strangely, what should have been the largest and clearest, the twelve clock hands, were the blurriest to Tang Jie, but the smallest and what should have been least visible, the edge gears, were clearly visible to him.

He could see that those gears weren't gears at all, but black needles made from smoke and formed into gears.

If one looked even more closely, one would realize that even this smoke was fake, consisting of countless interweaving rays of light.
These rays of light seemed like words and pictures, dancing around in the air and winding around each other.
They all seemed to have some unique meaning, with no repetition.
These were the Dao Inscriptions.

It was these Dao Inscriptions that formed the various Daos of the world, creating the entire universe.

The Dao was divided into the Heavenly Dao, the Great Dao, and the minor Dao.

There was only one Heavenly Dao, whereas there were twelve Great Daos, and countless minor Daos.
Whether it was a Great Dao or minor Dao, they were all beneath the one and only Heavenly Dao.

The Heavenly Dao could not be comprehended!

The saying that the superior comprehended the Heavenly Dao was actually hyperbole.
Only the Great Daos and minor Daos could actually be comprehended.

Those gears were the minor Daos, and the twelve clock hands were the Great Daos.

His ample preparations, the abundant resources, and the ideal location of the Langya Blessed Land had made Tang Jie's energy strong enough to break through the sea of stars and glimpse the Heavenly Dao.
If he concentrated and observed any single Dao, he would be able to comprehend a minor Dao.
As for how much he comprehended, that would depend on how many Dao Inscriptions he could understand.

Tang Jie's eyes flitted over the countless minors before turning to the twelve Great Daos in the center.

For him, these were the only ones worth pursuing.

He tried to get closer so that he could get a better look, but his energy refused to advance another step no matter how he pushed it.

Worst of all was that the energy was weakening and slowly drawing back.

Each second of delay would shorten the time Tang Jie had to comprehend the Dao, and if he delayed too long, he would miss his chance.

“No!” Tang Jie looked up at that Heavenly Dao Law Wheel far off in the distance and roared, “I've observed the Heavenly Dao Law Wheel before, comprehending Insight, and now that I'm shedding my mortality, I should be able to glimpse the secrets of the heavens and comprehend a Great Dao.”

As he mentally roared, it resounded through the heavens, striking that Heavenly Dao Law Wheel like a giant mallet.

A moment later, the vertical eye emerged from the center of his forehead, and Tang Jie's body was engulfed with light, preventing outsiders from glimpsing his appearance.

In the depths of the void, his mind swelled with power and advanced forward another step.
His eyes moved like lightning, penetrating through the thick haze and falling on one of the clock hands.

And then, Tang Jie saw that this Great Dao clock hand was also made from countless Dao Inscriptions.
As Tang Jie's gaze fell upon them, these Dao Inscriptions came alive.
As if they could sense that someone was looking at them, they exploded with golden light.

As this golden light fell on Tang Jie's mind, this mind that was linked to the world suddenly drew back as quickly as lightning, swiftly retreating into the horizon.

“Agh!” Tang Jie cried out, his body suddenly jumping up.

That powerful will followed his energy back and thundered into his brain.
