Chapter 1268: 1268
Trails of ice formed in the sky as the drops fell, and the lands froze once they touched the ground . The new continent transformed as that peculiar rain kept falling . The quasi-rank 7 Snake was transforming the landmass into its ideal lair .

The ice also spread to the sea . The new continent enlarged as the water froze . It didn't take much before new regions appeared around the landmass .

Except for the central regions, all the frozen lands radiated the quasi-rank 7 Snake violent aura . The creature had used its ice to expand its mind's range and increase its control over the landmass .

That was its home now, and the Eternal Snakes living there would benefit from the changes in the environment . Noah guessed that more creatures of that species would also appear due to those favorable conditions .

The golden net couldn't endure that show of power . Only a few golden shards remained in the sky when the cloud depleted its reserves of silver liquid .

A few attacks from the quasi-rank 7 specimen had been enough to destroy Second Prince's formation . Its might wasn't something that inscriptions in the heroic ranks could contain .

Noah's ambition calmed down after that process ended . That feeling remained intense, but it stopped empowering his centers of power .

The drawbacks soon arrived, but Noah didn't mind them . He remained on top of the teleportation matrix and waited for his peculiar mindset to end .

The quasi-rank 7 Eternal Snake had stated that it wouldn't stand by while Noah killed its pack . He couldn't even go all-out anymore since it had destroyed the golden net .

The leader had brought him back to square one, with the only difference that the population of Eternal Snakes had decreased by a lot in the past years . Noah had almost halved the original number of specimens in the world .

Noah gazed at the sky while he remained on the teleportation matrix . The net of cracks didn't enlarge during his observation . It seemed that the last hunt had finally slowed down the deterioration of the world .

He didn't know if the world had already reached a stable condition, but he wouldn't spend years observing the cracks to understand that . That was Second Prince's role . Noah's preferred to hunt .

'I can only play it smart now,' Noah thought as he activated the teleportation matrix to return inside the separate dimension .

The last hunt had brought many benefits, which went beyond the mastering of his new innate ability . He had also seized many valuable corpses .

His mind continued to expand without encountering any hindrance, and his body finally neared the breakthrough after eating those prey .

As for his dantian, Noah's cultivation sessions ended up triggering peculiar mental states that made him wander in the world of laws .

Noah spent years observing how his influence affected the world's structure . His destruction shattered the "Breath" while his creation reassembled it in the form of his darkness .

Still, those were only some aspects of his individuality . Noah knew that his ambition was the core of his existence . He had to make that feeling reach a higher state if he wanted to advance .

Heroic cultivators had to become laws to reach the divine ranks . The process was slow, and it often failed due to the many impurities that their individualities carried .

Laws expressed true meanings, which were some of the simplest forms of energy in the world . They carried an immense power, but they weren't complex in their structure .

Noah had to bring his individuality to a similar level to become a god, and that required him to find a true meaning capable of expressing all the features of his existence .

He had learnt about the effects of his individuality during the liquid stage, but he needed to elevate his existence to make it to the next phase . It wasn't a matter of abilities or techniques anymore . Noah now had to be a superior existence to reach the last stage .

'My ambition doesn't have a fixed form,' Noah thought as he remained immersed in his training . 'It can fuel all the aspects of my existence and make them go beyond their normal level . It is a miraculous power that forces the very matter to ignore its limits . '

Noah's ambition defied logic . It behaved as a secret art that could empower all his techniques and centers of power without leading to harsh repercussions .

His individuality was the realization of Noah's greatest dream . He had always desired a power that ignored external restraints and weaknesses .

Those meditations eventually led to a memory that he knew far too well . A scene that had remained stuck in his mind for his entire life resurfaced and filled his thoughts .

'Even after all these years,' Noah thought as a smile appeared on his face .

Noah had barely been five months old when he saw that scene . He didn't have any goal back then . Life appeared valueless in his eyes, and he believed that nothing could stir his feelings .

However, a dragon had appeared on the Balvan mansion's doorsteps, and Thomas Balvan had fended it off with his bare hands .

'To think that it has always been here,' Noah thought as he stopped cultivating to explode in a loud laugh .

Noah couldn't believe that he still remembered that memory so vividly . He was a two thousand years old monster, but that scene didn't disappear among the many events of his life .

'It took me so long to understand this,' Noah thought as he laid on the floor of the separate dimension and continued to laugh .

Throughout his life, Noah's desire for power had taken many forms . The cultivation world had techniques, spells, and martial arts, so his craving took those forms .

The world had already tainted his desire by then . Noah's feeling lost part of its purity as he advanced through the cultivation journey . That process was inevitable, but Noah reached that conclusion only when he reviewed his life from his current level of power .

'Techniques, spells, martial arts,' Noah shouted in his mind, 'They are only things . I've desired them because they gave me power, but my ambition transcends what items can accomplish!'

Noah's cultivation level increased as those thoughts filled his mind . He had found his true meaning, and his whole existence reacted to that event .

The ambition felt when Thomas Balvan fended off the dragon was pure . It was the simple desire for power of a man that knew nothing about the cultivation world .

Noah couldn't apply his ambition to actual methods because he didn't know anything . He was only a child filled with an unstoppable drive .

His ignorance about the cultivation world had made his ambition reach a level of purity that disregarded the restraints and laws around him . Not knowing had allowed his feeling to be devoid of any impurity .

Now, Noah felt the same pure ambition running through his existence . It was a feeling that ignored all the things that he had learnt through his life . It was a form of energy that did whatever it desired and disregarded whether that was doable .

Noah couldn't stop laughing . He found it ironic that his cultivation journey had brought him back to his first step, but he didn't fail to notice the changes in his cultivation level .

His dantian advanced to the solid stage while that feeling filled his existence .
