=== 046 Attempt ===
Old Liu explained in detail to Su Hao the process of imprinting the animal pattern, such as adjusting the structure, solidifying the structure, and confirming if the structure matched one’s self.
Before leaving, Old Liu mentioned, “By the way, in a month, the first, second, and third level students of our academy will have a year-end competition. You don’t need to participate, even if you go, it would be bullying others. So, just stay here and imprint the animal pattern peacefully!”
Su Hao didn’t care about this and was able to free up time to do his own things, so he nodded in agreement.
Unexpectedly, Old Liu added, “The first place winner of the competition will receive a powerful combat technique, but for you, it’s optional.”
Su Hao smirked, “But who would complain about having too many skills?”
Old Liu said, “If you want to learn, once you successfully advance to Grandmaster level, I will teach you.”
“Thank you, Teacher Liu!”
Su Hao realized that Old Liu genuinely treated him well, and others didn’t receive the same treatment. He could only hide this gratitude deep in his heart.
Su Hao knew that Old Liu didn’t expect anything from him. Old Liu just thought he had great potential and wholeheartedly taught him, hoping for his future growth, to become a powerful figure for the human race. Perhaps this was the belief of being a teacher, to pass on knowledge and always maintain a sense of awe.
Su Hao felt that every piece of knowledge he learned was becoming more and more profound. He thought that as long as he lived well, one day in the future, he would give the people of this world a great gift.
After Old Liu left, Su Hao found a quiet place on the third floor and opened the animal pattern – Perception.
On the scroll was a complex and exquisite circular pattern, resembling clusters of electromagnetic wave ripples, twisted and intertwined. Between the twisted and intersecting lines, an indescribable sense of beauty emerged.
Perhaps this was the beauty of nature, the beauty of life.
At the moment of seeing the pattern, Su Hao immediately had a question in his mind. Is one year really enough to imprint such a complex pattern into his body?
Those who could accomplish it in a year were truly not ordinary geniuses. It could be imagined how amazing the person who created this method, the person who became an Emperor back then, was.
Su Hao took a deep breath and murmured, “Not only do I need to imprint it, but I also need to modify and coordinate the structure to fit my own nature. With this difficulty, even if given two years, it might still be impossible to accomplish.”
“However… who made me have System? With System’s help, I should be able to make progress faster, right?”
At the first sight of the beast pattern, Su Hao immediately recorded the pattern into “The Light of the Universe” and created a new entry in The Light of the Universe called “Rune”!
These beast patterns can be classified as runes, belonging to a branch of runes. As more runes are recorded in the future, research can be started.
Su Hao’s consciousness came to the pinball space, looking at the complex runes manifested in the air, thinking about how to analyze and adjust them.
Since he had System’s help, the process of memory recording became very simple. He just needed to set the program and follow System’s instructions.
The problem now is that it is not feasible to record the rune as it is. It will not be compatible with his body and lead to failure. According to Old Liu, by relying on instinctive feelings, he can slowly adjust the structure and eventually succeed.
Su Hao twitched his mouth. If instinctive feelings were reliable, he would have become rich from buying lottery tickets years ago. He believed that the most unreliable thing about a person is their “feelings”. If someone starts a conversation by saying “I feel…” don’t believe them, they are usually wrong.
This is a lesson Su Hao learned the hard way.
Since “feelings” are unreliable, he has to rely on ‘science”.
But since there is a lack of comparative materials, Su Hao doesn’t know where to start.
“Just try randomly, as long as I take action and slowly experiment, it should work.”
Su Hao waved his hand and the environment in the pinball space instantly turned into a scientific laboratory with a large experimental table in the middle.
“System, collect real-time data of the body and project a 3D image.”
As soon as the words fell, the image of Su Hao’s body instantly appeared on the experimental table, floating above it, a true projection of Su Hao’s body, down to the smallest details.
Not only did it manifest the physical body, but even the blood inside was also manifested.
Su Hao continued to give instructions: Adjust the transparency to 50%.
The body on the experimental table instantly became semi-transparent, and the organs inside the body could be vaguely seen. The beating of the heart, the flow of blood, and the movement of the intestines could all be clearly observed.
“Adjust the size of the rune “Perception” and attempt to imprint it.”
The floating beast pattern started to adjust its size, then moved into the semi-transparent body, and finally imprinted itself between the chest cavity and the spine.
“Enlarge the area by 2 times!”
The location where the rune was imprinted enlarged, and Su Hao tightly watched the changes in the rune and the body.
Continue giving instructions: “Automatically simulate changes in body function.”
After a moment, System’s voice sounded, “Simulation failed, reason for failure: Lack of corresponding data.”
Su Hao sighed.
Indeed, it is impossible without reference data. It seems that he needs to personally attempt imprinting multiple times and gather enough data before he can perform comparative analysis and automatic simulations.
Su Hao immediately gave a new instruction: Establish a task to imprint the rune “Perception”.”The mission is successfully established.”
Su Hao adjusted himself in the virtual space and sat on the ground, quickly calming his mind.
At this moment, in his perception, his physical body and the projection of a small light merged together, and a glowing point appeared on the inside of his spine. This was where the small light indicated the start of the inscription.
Su Hao immediately mobilized his elite blood energy to reach the glowing point. The glowing point started moving, extending forward like a navigation map, with Su Hao’s blood energy following closely behind.
Following the guidance of the glowing point, Su Hao carefully controlled his blood energy, slowly inscribing the pattern. As he became more proficient, his speed increased, and soon the pattern took shape.
In just ten minutes, the first inscription was successfully completed.
With the shape of the blood energy maintained and ensured it wouldn’t easily dissipate, Su Hao opened his eyes and couldn’t help but smile: “With the help of the small light, this process has indeed become much simpler. Let’s try a few more times, maybe we can quickly succeed in inscribing.”
Su Hao entered the virtual space again, using a 3D projection of his current body state and adjusted the perspective by 50%. He carefully observed.
Soon, he discovered the areas of inconsistency.
The inscribed symbols within his body seemed to be naturally rejected by his body, with slight tremors occurring throughout, and some areas even showed signs of slow dissolution.
Su Hao wasn’t anxious; he continued to observe the dynamics of the inscribed symbols.
“Not all positions are inconsistent! Out of the 89 positions, 86 are inconsistent, but there are still three locations that are very stable.”
A gleam flashed in Su Hao’s eyes.
He quickly recorded these two types of phenomena and added them to the database.
Then he exited the virtual space, actively revoked the blood energy inscription, and returned to his normal state.
“Let’s go again!”
Su Hao entered a meditative state again and lightly adjusted the symbols. Without affecting the three stable positions, he rotated them at an angle and began the second inscription.
