Chapter 376: Fossil Energy Was About to Die
It was daybreak.
Andrew carefully poked his head out of a sewer.
The morning fog filled the vicinity.
The sanitation truck had just left.
This quiet street was so quiet that there was not a single person. Only the street lamps were lit up but he did not dare to let his guard down.
“The Blackguard actually has a general in this city…” He recalled what happened last night with lingering fear.
Even though he ran fast enough, the pursuit of the Blackguard was still like a shadow following him.
After exposing himself, the psionic power warning radar immediately locked onto him.
He became a shark mixed in a school of fish and was accurately identified.
It was like a specimen painted under a microscope in a laboratory.
If he had not made a prompt decision and immediately used the grace bestowed by the King of Angels, he would have been captured.
He was afraid that he would have been captured by now.
Even so, he was still terrified, like a frightened bird.
This was the metropolitan territory of the east.
On this land, ever since the recovery of spirit aura, the Blackguard had been able to suppress and control all the forces.
This naturally depended on the power that could convince any opponent at any time.
“I’ll hide for a few days first…” He slowly hid in the sewer, in the intricate network.
He needed time to re-forge his identity.
Fortunately, he was not alone.
He could contact the Church of Bone at any time.
Therefore, this matter could be entrusted to the people of the heresy court.
Yingulatte arrived at the school gate in her private car as usual.
She got out of the car with her school bag on her back and walked to the primary school ahead like a normal child.
Although she was only in the fourth grade, she was a fast learner.
She could apply to skip grades next year and go straight to junior high school.
When she reached the school gate, a school security guard walked up to her and squatted down.
“An assassin from the Church of Bone has infiltrated Jiangcheng City…” He said in a low voice, “From today onwards, your safety will be guaranteed by us!”
The Blackguard was very attentive to students like Yingulatte who was foreign student from the metropolitan territory, especially when they were those with the status.
Yingulatte was not surprised at all.
She nodded, picked up her backpack and walked to the school.
The assassins of the Church of Bone had been targeting the descendants of Van Helsing for the past two hundred years.
They had wanted to assassinate her since she was born because she was the last of Van Helsing’s bloodline.
Killing her would end everything!
It would end the two hundred years of struggle!
As for worry?
Even Britannia could guarantee her safety.
She would not be afraid in this country.
At the school gate, Yingulatte saw a little girl walking into the kindergarten under the escort of a parent.
“Be good, Aning…” The parent wore glasses and looked very young, “Listen to the teacher!”
“Okay!” The little girl nodded and waved at the person, “Go do your work, brother!”
“Okay!” The man smiled and turned around. He saw Yingulatte and smiled politely.
He turned around and let Yingulatte go over.
The smile on his face slowly curved into a brilliant arc.
For some reason, Yingulatte felt that this man looked at her as if he was looking at an ant or a worm.
Although he was smiling, he was smiling very brightly.
However, that smile was the same as when she was playing with her pet.
“A strange man…” Yingulatte didn’t think too much and walked into the school gate.
When she turned around, that man had already disappeared without a trace.
“Strange… He seems to have a strong smell of the sea…” Yingulatte mumbled, but she soon forgot about it.
He woke up naturally after a nap.
Ling Ping’an rubbed his eyes and walked to the balcony.
“Such a big fog…”
Autumn was coming to an end and winter was coming.
It was normal for such weather to appear in Jiangcheng City.
Otherwise, how could it be called Jiangcheng City?
If it weren’t for the fact that Shu prefecture was already covered in fog, Ling Ping’an estimated that Jiangcheng City would definitely be qualified to compete for the title of Fog City.
He picked up his phone and casually looked at the news while he was sleeping.
“Oh…” Ling Ping’an only took one look before he became excited, “It’s really confirmed!”
The headline of the news was: The Empire Central University and Cambridge University’s research institute would be settling down in Jiangcheng City.
This meant that next year’s water and electricity bills would really be reduced!
The young townsfolk instantly became happy because he remembered that these changes seemed to have happened after he had raised his opinion to that investigator.
This made him feel honored!
“Although this brother is a rice worm…” He was proud, “But he has also contributed to the country!”
Of course, he understood that his opinion might not have been seen by the meat eaters above or they might have just casually thrown it into the garbage heap.
This level of operation and policy was no longer something that Jiangcheng City could decide.
To put it bluntly, Jiangcheng City didn’t have the right to participate in such a thing.
Not to mention other things, the administrative level of the famous schools of the Federal Empire was far higher than that of ordinary provincial governors!
This was related to the national conditions of The Empire.
Going back 300 years, in the era of the Imperial College, the Imperial College’s Chancellor was an important official of the country.
As for today, the president of a world-famous university like the Empire’s Central University of Technology was already known as the uncrowned king.
Therefore, it could only be decided at the central federal government level.
However, this did not prevent the young bookstore owner from being self-satisfied.
If he was poor, he would be good to himself, and if he was successful, he would help the world.
This was the deep-rooted feelings of the people of The Empire.
Thus, Ling Ping’an happily changed his egame.qq.com signature.
His style instantly became incomparably stupid, “I am a world leader!”
Even his face was slightly red… but he felt great!
The spirit language rolled over to his ear.
As Zeng Jing listened, his temples swelled up high and his hair stood up one by one.
It had already been more than two minutes, but he still persisted.
Even though the staff around him were ready to cut off his listening this time.
He still persisted because… he felt that he had already peered into the truth.
After a series of sharp, ear-piercing, crazy, chaotic, and nameless sounds, Zeng Jing finally could not hold on any longer and abruptly took off his headphones.
Then, he panted heavily.
His eyeballs were bloodshot and they rolled up like lizards.
“I see… I see…” He stood up and shouted, disregarding the dissuasion of the people around him, “Prepare the highest-level laboratory for me immediately!”
“I want to start improving my design immediately!”
However, the people around him turned a deaf ear to him. They just picked him up and stuffed him into a special device.
“Grand Scholar, please calm down!” Xia Ping, who was holding a notebook, said, “According to the rules, your listening time has greatly exceeded the limit. You must be safely isolated and undergone the psionic power cleansing…”
Ever since the spirit language was obtained, its magic and terror had always coexisted.
Even though the Blackguard and the relevant research institutions had designed, weakened, and filtered it, it had reduced its terrifying distortion strength to the maximum.
It could cause a series of irreversible damage to the listener’s intelligence, vigor and even thought.
The longer the listener listened, the more serious the damage would be.
In the past two months, there had already been cases where staff members had been distorted or even died on the spot due to excessive listening to the spirit language.
As a result, the Blackguard set strict restrictions.
Every listener needed to undergo a safe isolation of observation and psionic power cleansing, and only after ensuring that they were safe could they leave.
And increasing the number of such overtime listeners was the most important thing!
This grand scholar did not listen to Xia Ping at all. He shouted, “Chief Xia, you are committing a crime!”
“A crime against science!”
He was about to be transferred out of Jiangcheng City to work at the imperial capital’s psionic power research institute of the Blackguard.
These were his last few listening sessions.
But just now, he felt that he had found the key to open his mind and saw the path to the truth.
This inspiration was not easy to come by.
It was very likely to be fleeting!
How could Zeng Jing be willing to carry out those old-fashioned measures?
He was only a grand scholar and not a transcendent being.
Therefore, in front of Xia Ping, he was stuffed into a specially made long tube without any resistance.
Gulp gulp gulp…
After a few minutes of psionic power cleansing, he was finally released.
The grand scholar who was released had his brains drooping, “Chief Xia, I want to file a complaint to the Federal Empire’s Academy of Sciences and The Blackguard Review Conference!”
“File a complaint against you!”
“You have committed an unforgivable crime against science!”
He had clearly reached the threshold just now and had seen a brand new possibility.
All of his inspirations and ideas were gone.
There were only a few ordinary ideas that could be called dull and uninteresting when compared to those fantastic ideas.
It was just a simple formula and two unworthy technical ideas.
At most, it could only solve the problem of transcendent being crystals under physical technology.
“Transcendent being crystals?” Zeng Jing was stunned.
He immediately shouted, “Quick! Prepare the highest photoelectric laboratory for me!”
“Connect me to Grand Scholar Su Changming from the Imperial City’s Photovoltaic Technology Research Institute!”
“Also… immediately transfer 50 first lieutenants of the Blackguard to cooperate with my experiment!”
He knew that he had already found the gateway to the combination of science and transcendent being’s strength.
Based on the trivial information obtained after reverse engineering from the cracked coin, he combined his inspiration and thoughts.
He could try to let the silicon crystal and transcendent being grow together!
That formula was the formula to solve this problem!
And those two technological ideas were the ideas to industrialize it!
Although it was very crude, although it might be far from 1% of the technology contained in the ‘coin’.
In the end, it might be a breakthrough of zero!
Science and transcendent being would be unified in his hands for the first time!
“I will receive the ‘Son of Heaven Medal’
“I will be conferred a title!”
“At least a Marquis!”
The system of titles in the Federal Empire was a system that had been implemented since ancient times.
There was a clear hierarchy between male and female nobles!
However, up until now, this system had already become an honorary hierarchy.
Any civil servant who worked diligently and did not make any mistakes would be able to obtain a title before retiring.
Most high-ranking civil servants could also obtain some special title before retiring.
However, Marquis and above were very precious.
They were not awarded unless they had a great merit or a political achievement.
Many cabinet ministers could only get one “XX” in their whole lives.
Only the first and second assistant cabinet ministers could be posthumously awarded with those supreme title after they died.
As for the title of Prince or Princess…
Probably only those important ministers who had rendered meritorious service to save lives could be posthumously awarded after their death.
And the Son of Heaven Medal plus a marquis, this was the honor that all grand scholars dreamed of in their entire lives.
It was the best reward for their entire lives!
Because after obtaining these two honors, they could truly be considered to be glorifying their ancestors.
There would be statues of them in their hometown. Their alma mater would have a teaching building named after them, and their work unit would have a research institute named after their research results.
After death, the Prime Minister of the cabinet would carry the coffin and the Emperor would personally administer the funeral.
As for the posthumous title, they could choose it at will…
It was simply the highest pursuit of the literati and intellectuals!
Therefore, Zeng Jing’s excitement was understandable.
Following the grand scholar’s order, the entire research base was thrown into chaos.
However, under The Empire’s highly efficient system, his request was quickly met.
A few hours later, in the underground photoelectric laboratory of Jiangcheng City’s army base, everyone saw a miracle.
A silver-white silicon crystal was growing.
Its growth pattern was the same as the usual silicon crystal.
On all the panels, the data of this crystal was displayed.
It… was a transcendent being crystal!
This was the first time that humans had produced an artificial transcendent being in a laboratory!
It was a transcendent being that could be produced and carried out repeatedly!
This was already the third silicon crystal that had been produced using the same technology!
This thin silicon crystal, after being cut, displayed superconductivity that far surpassed any silicon crystal.
Zeng Jing looked at it and clenched his fists with extreme fanaticism.
“We have unveiled the secret of transcendent being!”
“Facts have proven…”
“Science can explain metaphysics!”
This was very important!
Ever since the recovery of spirit aura, the scientific world had suffered a great blow.
This was because the scientists had discovered that they were unable to explain the phenomenon of transcendent being!
This made many scientists feel disheartened. They even surrendered to transcendent being and admitted defeat.
But today, Zeng Jing used facts to prove it.
Transcendent being had rules to follow, formulas to summarize and technology to restrict.
In other words, sooner or later, humans would be able to master it.
And tame it!
At that time…
Let me show you my latest research: anti-god weapon!
Take a bullet from my psionic power!
Of course… that would be an event in the future.
What Zeng Jing did today was just to open the door and prove it.
Just like how ancient humans first mastered the skill of making fire.
Grand Scholar Su Changming, who had been on the line with Zeng Jing and had witnessed the whole process, said after a long silence, “Fossil energy will die!”
The appearance of the transcendent being silicon crystal meant that mankind would truly obtain the freedom of energy.
He had already foreseen the moment when optoelectronics would completely replace fuel oil in the future.
He only needed fifty first lieutenants and a set of traditional silicon crystal production equipment with a little improvement.
Then, he could achieve large-scale production.
The cost would increase by 30% at most but the efficiency of power generation would double!
This is only the first generation.
