Chapter 656 - New Cla.s.s Change Session! 6: A Meeting Between Demiurge And The One
The moment I changed Cla.s.ses to Demiurge, a rush of power enveloped my body and soul, but just at the same time, my mind was sent elsewhere, as my consciousness seemingly left my body.
The other split minds I had came with me, and even, seemingly, all other True Body Clones I had around might have blacked out as well, except Slime Clones and such, who had independent wills and souls.
I glanced around my surroundings as I found myself in a completely white s.p.a.ce.
Suddenly, a voice resonated within my very soul, it greeted me.
"Greetings, Demiurge," it said.
"Huh? Who's there?" I asked I tried to use my senses to glance all-around myself, but I could not find anything other than complete bright whiteness, almost iridescent, if any eye were to see this, it would most likely become blind within less than a second.
However, because I was using my special five senses to 'see' things without having eyes, I was not affected by such a thing.
"I am here, I am everywhere…" it said. Now that I could listen to its voice again, it sounded like that of a gentle old man, seemingly in his fifties.
"You're… everywhere?" I asked.
"Indeed, I have many names, some call me the Architect, others call me 'The One'… Some call me 'The Creator'. Yet, I am none of such things, I am simply me, and I am everywhere," it said.
The ent.i.ty spoke with words filled with wisdom yet naivety, it was as if I were talking with a wise old man but also a very naïve young man.
"Err… Okay? So, you're from Genesis?" I asked.
"Oh? Genesis… Hm, so that's from where you are, Demiurge," said the ent.i.ty.
"Yes? How could you call me here without knowing that?" I asked.
"I did not call you here, you came on your own, Demiurge," said the ent.i.ty.
"I did? I do not remember doing that at all, you know?! Can I go back?" I asked I did not know what this ent.i.ty was, but I was sure that something as fishy about all of this, this thing was indeed quite strong, to the point that it called itself 'everything'. My mind was rus.h.i.+ng with many thoughts about the possibilities of what this creature could be, and some concluded that it could be the conception of the 'All-Powerful G.o.d' of the monotheistic religions from Earth.
"You can go back at any time you please, Demiurge. But now that we are here, why don't we chat? I feel lonely, yet I am always with everyone," said the ent.i.ty.
"So you're alone or not?" I asked.
"Yes and no," said the ent.i.ty.
"…It is getting more and more confusing to speak with you," I said.
"It is natural. It is hard for young Demiurge like you to understand my entire being completely," said the ent.i.ty.
"Young Demiurge? Are there more?" I asked.
"Indeed, there is more Demiurge. Demiurge is a concept, those that carry my legacy through the mortal plane, are Demiurge. Those that carry the divine power to exert in the mortal plane, are Demiurge. Those capable of reaching G.o.dhood while also being a mortal, are Demiurge. Those with large amounts of Primordial Essence while possessing mortal bodies, are Demiurge. Those capable of-"
"Okay, okay, I get it, don't go overboard. Are you a living computer?" I asked.
"No. But I might seem to be similar to a supercomputer in your terms," said the ent.i.ty.
So, basing it off this guy, Demiurge is not only a Cla.s.s, but it is somewhat of cla.s.sification of what I am right now. Something that can exert Divine Power in the mortal plane while also ama.s.sing large quant.i.ties of Primordial Essence with a mortal body…
"Are you the creator G.o.d from earth's religions?" I decided to ask the ent.i.ty the great question immediately.
"Hm? Maybe? I might know, but I also might not. There is an endless amount of Parallel Worlds named 'Earth' and many others that diverge from it, one of such is the 'Genesis' you're coming from, Demiurge," said the ent.i.ty.
"What?! So Genesis is indeed Earth's Parallel World! And there is an endless amount?! How hard will it be for me to find the one I originally came from?" I asked.
"As long as you follow the trail of your Origin there, you might be able to find the correct world where your soul originally came from. But let me tell you this, Demiurge. Your soul does not actually originate from that world. Souls are always swimming through endless worlds," said the ent.i.ty.
"Yeah, but I remember that Earth. Even if I was someone else million of years ago, as long as there are no memories of that, why should I care?" I asked.
"Hm, good response, Demiurge… Now, do you believe in Chaos, Demiurge?" said the ent.i.ty.
"Chaos? Like the ent.i.ty? I actually met it…" I said.
"Oh, I see, that's why your Primordial Essence is so tainted with it, hm," said the ent.i.ty.
"Is there something wrong with it?" I asked.
"No, not much. You are children of Chaos, Demiurge. Both children of Chaos and a Demiurge… You are surely unique," said the ent.i.ty.
"What connection do I have with Chaos? And how do you know it? Are you two related? Where did you come from?" I asked.
"…Where did we come from? I do not really know. I always existed. The same is for Chaos and many others like us… And the connection? Wouldn't it be boring if I told you? It is more fun if you get to know it yourself. The best way to become a better person is to experience many things by yourself and learn from what you have done and will do," said the ent.i.ty.
"Don't come with that c.r.a.p, tell me!" I said.
"No," said the ent.i.ty.
"Why not?!" I barked.
"I don't want to," it answered.
"…Now you're acting like a kid…" I said.
"I am rather young, and old too," said the ent.i.ty with a chuckle.
"Now that I remember something, Chaos said that it was bound by the shackles of something, do you know anything? I might as well ask you as much as I can," I said.
"Oh, that. Well, it is like that. Although I would not like to spoil you the fun of discovering things, I can only tell you that those that had shackled Chaos are not from our reality," said the ent.i.ty.
"Reality?!" I asked.
"Hm, how can I explain it? Realities are different than dimensions, and so dimensions are different than universes, and so universes are different than galaxies, and so galaxies are different than worlds," it said.
"That doesn't tell me much…" I said.
"Okay, how about this? Within your Dimension, it is where all universes exist, each universe has its own rules and worlds, and many ent.i.ties that had reached the ability to interact with the fabric of existence, such as G.o.ds. But a Different Reality is outside of this, you could call it another Dimension, but thing is, inside Realities, there are many Dimensions… And that's how much I'll explain before I get scolded," laughed the ent.i.ty.
"Wait, what?! So… w-what?! Then, wait a moment, with my Void Attribute Magic…" I muttered.
"Oh, Void Attribute? It interesting, for such a young Demiurge to possess it… Well, as you are now, you can only travel to nearby Worlds within the surrounding universes of your own. I believe that the Earth you come from is not as far as you believe from Genesis, it might be a neighbor universe, even," said the ent.i.ty.
"I see… so it is rather close then. But it is not like I can freely travel worlds, I get all weakened," I said.
"Oh, that's because you have not grasped the- Hm, I better stop revealing things, for now, the overseer outside of all realities has already noticed me," said the ent.i.ty.
"Overseer?! So, there is someone even higher than you?" I asked.
"Yeah, and the overseer also has many others greater than his, it is an almost endless hierarchy, the fabrics of all existences are incredibly complex. It might be too hard for you to understand now," said the ent.i.ty.
"How… far am I from truly grasping this?" I asked.
"In simple terms that you can understand… well, you need to be around… one billion times stronger than you are to even understand a bit of it," said the ent.i.ty.
"Ah, don't worry, you've been blessed by Chaos, your growth is exponential. The world where you are is quite hostile, but it is also an excellent place for you to ama.s.s power. I am sure that in a few, you will be able to grasp it all, Demiurge," said the ent.i.ty.
"Wow thanks for the cheers, but I think that even by saying that I feel incredibly weak now," I said.
"Everyone has to start somewhere, right? The existences are vast, and the journey is endless, instead of trying to find something, the whole point of it all is to find yourself in all of this. Where do you belong? Where do you think you are going? What are you in all of this?" Who do you think that you can be?" asked the ent.i.ty.
The questions that the ent.i.ty put into me hit me right into my sense of self, and it made me question a bit all of my actions.
However, the moment I remembered my family and my children, my allies, and my friends in Genesis, and even my parents on Earth, my will to discover myself and to help them discover themselves brought back the energy into my soul.
"I see how it is. I believe that I have found many things, but there is yet to find many others… Now I shall leave, as it seems that I might be threatening your existence by being here for too long," I said.
"Well said, Demiurge. I wish you a good traveling, here, grab my Blessing," said the ent.i.ty, as a lump of whiteness followed my consciousness back to Genesis.
The ent.i.ty that had spoken with Kireina when she acquired the Demiurge Cla.s.s sighed in relief.
"That was rather concerning. That little Demiurge's soul was rather monstrous. I have never seen something like that, not even within other children of chaos. Even if it was a very small soul, its potential is truly endless… Has this existence finally came to change how everything is? I wonder what the Overseers of Realities might think… Perhaps even chaos might not have as many cards behind its sleeve to open up paths towards more Chaos…"
"I suppose this is why it is moving so much lately? Even shackled, Chaos never ceases to move… And Azathoth seems to have taken an interest in this little Demiurge too…"
"Although Chaos is shackled, its existence is everywhere, there is much that the overseers can do against it while not threatening its existence, which would end up at the end of our Dimension…"
"Chaos is bringing chaos to many worlds and new children of chaos are being born all over the universes… And oh? It seems that I have found three more just as this little Demiurge has left me… Hm… Veronica, Ervas… and Frank, are they? This is how their own souls identify themselves, just as the little Demiurge called itself Kireina. How amusing…"
"So Azathoth is overseeing Ervas and Veronica? What about Frank? Hm? Oh? This is… A World Traveler? This young? Amazing… Indeed, the laws of this Reality are slowly shaping themselves for a new Era…"
"The world is really changing… Chaos, Azathoth, what are you two planning now? Make sure to not threaten the life of the mortals too much, even if their souls are immortal… I better slumber, for now, blessing the little Demiurge has… strangely enough, drained my Primordial Essence, it is extremely hard to bless those that are already blessed by a Primordial…"
