Chapter 202: Doubts about the Pinball Space
Su Hao’s confusion lies in the perception of the power of his consciousness, experiencing subtle growth.
It’s a rather peculiar sensation, akin to feeling lighter, shedding the burden from his shoulders, or sudden relief from years of ailment.
For Su Hao, this manifests as an immense vigor within his body, a more docile nature of the vital energy, requiring less energy to mobilize it. The weighty feeling brought by this massive vitality slightly eases.
Though this sensation is subtle, Su Hao indeed perceives it.
Su Hao knows that his recent contemplation has led to progress in consciousness.
He hasn’t experienced this for a long time, and today’s sudden progress surprises him greatly but raises more doubts: “Why another improvement? Could it be related to the ‘Prophet’ gene?”
Su Hao couldn’t help but furrow his brow; is the power of consciousness also manipulated by genetics?
Upon careful consideration, it is indeed related but not entirely so.
For a moment, Su Hao finds it challenging to grasp the relationship between them.
In theory, Su Hao’s consciousness essence is actually stored within the pinball space; the strength of his consciousness should not be determined by this Zhuo Hua individual’s body, as this body is essentially a vehicle for his thinking.
However, having just evolved into a ‘Prophet,’ he feels the growth of consciousness’s power, and Su Hao can be certain that this growth won’t vanish if he changes bodies, but will truly affect the growth within the pinball space.
So, is the growth of consciousness related to being a ‘Prophet’? Perhaps there are other factors he has overlooked?
Su Hao rubs his head, closes his eyes, and lets his thoughts wander.
“Upon closer inspection, there are still many things I don’t understand about the pinball space, such as its exact location in the universe, how it connects to this current body, and what the relationship is between the pinball space and me…”
The more he thinks, the further his thoughts wander. Once he starts contemplating, Su Hao finds it hard to stop. These questions have been lingering in his mind for a long time, yet he hasn’t had much time to explore the secrets of the pinball space.
Today, with this sudden discovery, all these doubts explode at once.
Maybe after figuring out this issue, he’ll be able to understand the relationship between consciousness and the body.
And the so-called ‘consciousness projection’ onto the body, using the body for thinking, is merely a surface-level phenomenon.
Perhaps this involves various factors like ‘carrier,’ ‘consciousness,’ ‘information,’ ‘logic,’ and more.
These questions intertwine in Su Hao’s mind, leaving him momentarily unable to clear his thoughts. Various guesses exist, but none can be confirmed and seem unreliable.
Until darkness falls, he remains empty-handed, his mind already heavily clouded.
“Now, having just evolved, it’s better to wait until thoroughly adapting before thinking about these issues!” With that thought, Su Hao lies down, gradually drifting off to sleep.
One month later, Su Hao completely adapts to his new body.
And he gains the four abilities of the ‘Prophet.’
The ‘Acquisition’ ability is as Su Hao imagined, capturing some kind of fluctuation released by touching objects.
It can be electromagnetic waves, microwaves, or force fields. The stronger the fluctuation, the clearer the information obtained, somewhat similar to the electric current sensing of a platypus.
For instance, he can touch a small round mouse and acquire information such as some fearful emotions, the talents of the mouse, or even the vitality of the mouse. Each piece of information obtained is different every time.
The ‘analytical’ ability involves processing and restoring the acquired information. For instance, after touching a person, Su Hao gains some life signals from that person, then analyzes and filters this information to restore the received signals.
For instance, if the person is thinking about a stunning beauty, Su Hao might obtain corresponding information and, upon restoration, understand who the person is constantly thinking about.
‘Recording’ can save the corresponding information, similar to a pinball space, though there’s a substantial difference.
‘Simulation’ is akin to a ‘conversion room’ inside the body, enabling the simulation of the subsequent development of events based on acquired information.
In fact, any ‘Zhu Hua’ individual possesses these abilities, such as eyes gathering information, the brain analyzing and recording it, and imagining subsequent scenarios.
The ‘Prophetic’ individual only intensifies this ability, making it an independent, unique skill.
Undeniably powerful, Su Hao can perceive that his thinking speed has greatly improved.
This difference is like that between a 90s old-fashioned computer and a modern supercomputer.
This explains why, despite the same nine-year education, some individuals excel while others struggle to pass, not due to effort but due to inferior hardware, slower speed.
For the first time, Su Hao experiences what it’s like to be a genius.
This time, he’s a genuine genius, unlike the superficially acclaimed geniuses like Luo Zhaohui and Wu Xiangwu, who are essentially ordinary individuals.
Now, glancing back at the previously perceived challenging academic knowledge, it seems incredibly simple!
With a little contemplation, seemingly complex logic quickly falls into place.
Is mathematics difficult? Previously, Su Hao might have hesitated and said, “Difficult!” But now, he’d surely give a confident, almost haughty smile: “Is it difficult?”
This is looking down on ordinary people!
Thinking about this, Su Hao feels a bit sad.
What’s saddening is that he used to be such an ignorant and unenlightened person…
“God gave me a brain, but I didn’t expect this brain to be not so good. The key is, I never realized how inadequate this brain was before. What a sad realization!”
Without being a real genius, one can’t even fathom how a genius perceives the world, or even understand that their own thinking is so muddled!
Previously, Su Hao never dared to admit he was a genius, but now, he can finally stand tall and boldly tell everyone that he, Su Hao, is indeed a genius!
Su Hao briskly flips through various books, quickly comprehending and absorbing the theories and logical thinking within, then weaving them together and applying them in various situations.
He’s so excited, he’s almost moved to tears.
Looking back at my previous lives, it’s really hard to sum it up! Apart from effort, I had nothing.
Su Hao couldn’t help but sigh, “Luckily, I still have effort! Otherwise, even the Pinball Space wouldn’t be able to save an ordinary person like me.”
At that moment, Yashan came to find Su Hao.
After Su Hao opened the door for Yashan, Yashan awkwardly spoke, “Boss Wei, my three wives are six months pregnant and will give birth soon. I want to bring them to Temple Forest City and ask for your opinion.”
After calculating the time, Su Hao was indeed surprised. “Wouldn’t it be better for you to directly go back to Huixiang City to take care of them? Why bring them here?”
Yashan chuckled, “Boss Wei, it’s just for your peace of mind! I don’t trust anyone else much. If they encounter any unsolvable issues, Boss Wei can help take care of it! Also, taking care of three is still taking care. Bringing them here can also help with some miscellaneous tasks for you. As for Huixiang, with Taini there, I’m very reassured!”
Taini is now a level seven “Mingshi,” and very few can threaten her. Yashan is entirely at ease.
Su Hao smiled, “I think you’re just trying to avoid Taini, aren’t you?”
Yashan coughed, “Boss Wei, you’re wise, that’s part of it.”
Thinking about it, Su Hao realized it might not be a good idea to have these three special children born outside. Who knows if there might be any issues during the birth of these first-generation ‘innately sacred’ individuals!
So, Su Hao nodded and said, “Then bring them all here!”
Then, Su Hao couldn’t contain his creativity. Suddenly, he came up with an idea. He immediately took Yashan outside, saying, “Yashan, when you bring your pregnant wives, you can’t just let them walk slowly! Come here, let Boss Wei teach you how to make a ‘luxury airliner,’ so you can comfortably transport a bunch of people back and forth!”
Yashan had a big question mark over his head: “Airliner?”
