The Oracle Paths

Chapter 29 New features

oment of enlightenment and understand how to save his soul, but these are too rare cases to mention.]

[On the other hand, the Oracle is not all-powerful. It is possible that the concept of an immortal soul as you conceive it exists. But even the Oracle cannot verify these claims. Again, this is a matter of personal faith.]

[But if I can give you some advice to take seriously, forming a stable Soul should be one of your top priorities. Some abilities are just beyond the capabilities of a biological brain or an inorganic processor.]

”And how am I supposed to do that? ”

[First things first. The first thing you need to know is that you can use your Oracle device to apply pure Aether directly to your own body. You only have to wish it with your mind, but I wouldnt recommend it. It would be the stupidest thing you could ever do.]

”Why, whats wrong with using it like that? ” Jake was under the impression that this energy only had benefits.

[The problem is the same reason a newborn on Earth has as much Dream Aether as an old man or a rock. Just as a warm body passively transfers heat to colder bodies, natural Aether flows to less concentrated environments. If you soak in Aether, youll lose it like a flame loses its heat in the middle of a blizzard. ]

[However, this is also the reason why some life forms are superior to humans. If you lived on a planet with a higher concentration of Aether, youd see all your faculties increase in a short time.]

Jake thought long and hard about Xis words, but he couldnt find any inconsistencies. The only thing he could think of was that using Aether directly was what some more evolved species could do naturally without the help of the Oracle. The functions of his bracelet were really just crutches until he could do the same.

”Then how do I use the Encode function? ” Jake asked this time. He was determined not to lag behind on this.

[Encode preforms the Aether in a usable way. Dream Aether is an energy that makes everything possible, but to make use of it the energy must be encoded.]

[To make an analogy, your body is the way it is because each of your cells is governed by a common DNA. You dont need to know why your blood is red, why your eyes are blue, or how your cells divide. Its just the way it is. DNA is a genetic code, which regulates your biology.]

[Every living being also has an Aetheric code. But in primitive life forms, this code is extremely simple. It is a simple energy signature. Each signature is different. Even two twins with identical genetic codes do not have the same Aetheric code.]

[Every magical power, cultivation technique with miraculous effects or unexplained psychic powers can be explained by this code. The problem is that understanding this code is impossible for an earthling.]

[After all this is about the primordial laws of the Universe. You have a better chance of altering your own genetic code than venturing to manipulate your Aetheric signature.]

[Thats where Encode comes in. It can transform the Aether into energy that can be used specifically to enhance your attributes. Even though the Aether has no color, the Oracle has assigned colors to these different energies so that you can easily differentiate between them. It is the same for all alien races using the Oracle.]

[Red for Strength, Orange for Agility, Yellow for Constitution, Green for Vitality, Cyan for Intelligence and Indigo for Perception.]

[There are other colors, but they dont apply to you yet. There is a reason why the colors of the light spectrum were chosen. The Oracle device uses more Aether to encode each color. One point of aether for one point of strength, then double that for one point of agility and so on.]

”It seemed to me that in reality the stats were correlated with each other. ” Jake remembered, grumbling aloud. ”Like, you need bones strong enough to be strong without getting hurt, or something like that? ”

[And they are.] Xi confirmed. [Hence the cost. Take the example of Intelligence, which needs sixteen times more energy than normal. In human beings, even at rest, the brain, which weighs less than 2% of body mass, consumes more than 20% of the energy produced. This is an evolutionary limit. A more powerful brain overheats and would become too expensive for the organism].

[In order to develop Intelligence primarily with Aether, it is encoded to strengthen certain aspects of the Constitution, Vitality, Nervous System etc…]

[The last reason this color code is so important is because the encoded Aether is the main currency in the Mirror-Universe where you will soon go as Earth is reassembled there.]
