Di Fuyi’s Past (3)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
The strangest thing about the video was that every detail of the man, including his robes, was clearly displayed on the screen, apart from his face. There were no facial features on his face, which made it look like a blank canvas. It was a peculiar sight for anyone.
Gu Xijiu wondered what kind of species this faceless man could be.The things that she witnessed next were a series of events that strongly reminded her of the great myth of when Pan Gu created the world for all of mankind.
The man continued to travel without a direction in the great space of millions, or even billions, of stars. Everywhere around him was impressive emptiness. There was nothing else but him. There were no creatures or living beings anywhere to be seen.
Apparently, the man in the video was a god. Every gesture of his could easily affect his surroundings. After a short while of wandering around, he decided to sit downsomewhere in the galaxy and started waving his hands out of boredom.
Clumps of dust seemed to swirl along with his every wave. He played with the cloud of dust for a while before setting it off into the faraway distance to eventually collide with the desolate, uninhabited planets. Dust fogs started swirling around the planets, creating an opaque mass of particles in the air.
The man seemed rather fascinated by the result of this action, so he kept creating the same collisions over and over again. Meteorites of different elements were sent to collide with random planets in the area. Gradually, greens started to spread across the surface of every planet. Hills and mountains started rising abruptly from the ground, and lakes were formed from the streams within the hills. Animals began to rule the world.
Gu Xijiu sat and watched attentively as the entire scene unfolded. The whole video felt like an upgraded story of Nuwa and the birth of human beings. However, in this case, the man was both Pan Gu and Nuwa, for he had achieved two different ambitions at once.
According to legend, Nuwa created human beings by molding clay into human figurines, which was different from the theory of evolution. First, he bombarded the planets with many meteorites and let life evolve as it was, just like Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection.
In the video, it seemed that the entire evolution process had been fast-forwarded. It took only a minute to show the beginning of life on earth up to the point where humans learned to walk on foot.
Obviously, humans were not the only advanced species on earth. There were also half-beast men, birdmen, and even half-insect men. There were many species that she had never even heard of before. Some were even completely beyond her imagination.
Even for human beings, they all looked and evolved differently on different planets. Some were as big and muscular as the apes. Some were so tiny that they were only two feet tall. There were also people of different external appearances – beautiful ones and hideous ones. Some were born normally with four limbs. Others had seven or eight limbs. The terrifying sight sent chills down her spine.
The creator of the universe would take a tour around each planet once in a while. If he found any species to be unfavorable to his liking, an apocalypse would be dawned on the world to wipe out the entire species so that he could restart with another round of evolution.
Gu Xijiu continued to stare at the divine force that created the universe and started thinking if this version of the story belonged to the creator of the Blue Fox planet. The contents seemed to suggest that the creator of the universe was savagely violent. Anything that he disliked would be immediately abolished on a catastrophic scale, whether by flooding, fire, or lightning.
Lives never mattered to him, as he continued to manipulate the destinies of the living creatures on each planet as he pleased. She stared at the creator and found him to be a little familiar, but she could recall when and where they met.
Soon, the creator seemed to have become bored with the stupidity of the creatures that he had created, and he seemed to have grown tired of managing the lives on each planet. So, he started performing a spell amid a cloud of stardust. Slowly, a man’s figure could be seen forming under his spell.
Gu Xijiu gasped in astonishment, for she could not believe her eyes. The man was Di Fuyi! But how could it be possible? Why would Di Fuyi be in a documentary from the Blue Fox planet?
