In the afternoon, Yin Shen invited a friend to drink tea at a refreshment restaurant.
Yin Shen stretched out his hand from the second floor: “Here!”
A man in the lobby saw him immediately and walked up with a smile.
The inch-headed man is an internet writer and also a college classmate of Yinshen. This kind of person is probably the kind who knows a little about everything, but they don’t go deep into it.
Yin Shen likes to chat with him, and he likes to talk about everything from science fiction, mythology, history, astronomy, geography, military affairs and so on.
It’s either serious or just bullshit, but it’s relaxing.
This time, the two talked from history to mythology, and from mythology to ghost novels, with strange rumors from the West mixed in.
Yin Shen suddenly said: “Recently, when I fall asleep in the middle of the night, I always feel another self suddenly crawling out of my body.”
“And then all night, I just looked at myself until I woke up.”
“It’s kind of like”
“Western soul projection, as well as the yin and **** separation in your novels.”
“You said, what’s the situation?”
The inch-headed man didn’t laugh at the absurdity in Yinshen’s words. Instead, he thought carefully for a while and organized his words.
“The first thing to understand is that if a person really has a soul, then what is the composition of the soul?”
“Is it matter or energy?”
Yin Shen thought for a moment, then said uncertainly.
“Neither seem to be.”
The inch-cut man then asked: “What about memory and consciousness? Is it in the soul, or still exists in the brain.”
Yin Shen confirmed, “It’s in the soul.”
“I feel like my body is like an anchor point, anchoring my soul to this point.”
“Obviously I can get out with just one struggle, but I feel like something terrible will happen as soon as I get out.”
“This feeling made me panic inexplicably, and then I didn’t dare to continue to do it.”
Yin Shen suddenly laughed: “Do you think I am going to awaken some superpower, or start cultivating immortals?”
The inch-cut man shook his head: “For the time being, regardless of whether what you said is true or not, if a person really has a soul, and it does not belong to matter and energy, and even memory and consciousness can be stored in it, then it is nothing. Superpowers are comparable to cultivating immortals.”
“What kind of soul projection, what kind of yin spirit wandering, are just the existence imagined by the ancients, compared with it, it is like the difference between heaven and earth.”
“Even the gods in historical myths and the immortals in Taoist legends are not comparable to this kind of existence.”
“Even Pan Gu, the Creator God, Brahma, Chaos, and Azathoth, who created the world, have nothing to do with you.”
God Yin stood there dumbfounded when he heard this. He was talking about the human soul just now, so why did he involve these creators and the supreme gods in various myths?
“What you said is endless, is there anyone so powerful?”
“According to what you said, if a person has a soul, he can be directly invincible.”
The inch-headed man said seriously: “I’m not talking nonsense, but there are facts and evidence.”
“Because the universe is composed of matter, and time is the manifestation of the movement of matter, the continuity and order of change.”
“If your soul does not belong to matter and energy, your consciousness is not based on your brain but on your soul.”
“What does this mean?”
“Your soul and this universe are like two non-overlapping planes. You can transcend this universe, and you are not even bound by time.”
“Think about it, isn’t that so?”
Yin Shen continued: “Doesn’t that mean that once the soul is freed from the shackles of the body, it will immediately leave this universe?”
“Even the soul can directly transcend the long river of time, travel through space and time, and become an existence free from the timeline?”
“I can even travel to any era at will, and even tamper with history?”
The inch-headed man expressed his thoughts again: “It’s not necessarily true.”
Yin Shen asked: “Why?”
The inch-headed man: “As I said just now, the soul and the universe you described are like two non-overlapping planes, two non-overlapping planes, and there is no point of intersection at all.”
“You are not related to the universe, so from what angle do you perceive the existence of the universe?”
“You can’t even perceive the universe, how can you perceive time, and how can you travel further on the timeline?”
In Yin Shen’s mind, he suddenly had an answer to the source of that fear.
“So, once the soul leaves the body, it is like a ship that has lost its coordinates and direction. It is very likely that it will leave this universe and never find its way back?”
The inch-headed man nodded: “One possibility is that you still have a connection with the real universe, and there is an anchor point here.”
“In this way, you can observe the universe through this anchor point, and as I said before, become an observer free from the universe and time.”
“If you have different anchor points in different time periods, you may even become an existence that travels through the timeline as you said.”
Speaking of this, the inch-cut man’s words became gloomy.
“But there is another possibility.”
“The moment you break away from the anchor point of the body, you are thrown to an unknown place outside the universe.”
“There may be another universe, it may be the source of time, or it may be another dimension or an unknown that humans cannot imagine.”
“There may be nothing there, just like a prison, and your soul will be trapped there, ten million years, one hundred million years.”
The scene fell silent in an instant, and no one spoke for a long while.
At this time, the inch-cropped man suddenly laughed, and he picked up the teapot for Yin Shenman.
“Your idea is good, it’s quite innovative.”
“My next new book wants to use your setting, maybe it will be popular?”
The inch-headed man didn’t take Yin Shen’s words seriously, thinking that it was just another unrestrained imagination and unrestrained empty talk as usual.
However, Yin Shen was in a complicated state of mind, he stood up and prepared to leave.
“I’m going first!”
“If you have written it, or if you have any new ideas and ideas, remember to tell me and let’s discuss together.”
However, the inch-cut man stopped him and took out something from his backpack.
“God Yin, don’t go yet.”
“Using your settings, I will give you a good thing.”
Yin Shen took the box that the inch-headed man gave him, opened it, and found an irregular stone inside, with a delicate bug pattern on it.
“What is this? A fossil?”
Cheap-headed man: “Ledlich, a type of trilobite.”
“Although this fossil is not worth much, but thinking about being able to see lifelike creatures hundreds of millions of years ago appearing in front of me, I feel that no amount of money can buy this kind of shock.”
“Take it back and put it at home, imagine and feel the ancient earth hundreds of millions of years ago and the vicissitudes of these ancient creatures!”
Yin Shen thanked the inch-cut man, and walked with the gift while watching.
However, as soon as he reached the lobby, an out-of-control car suddenly slammed into the glass door of the lobby from the street outside at a speed of more than 100 yards, crushing Yinshen with layers of glass shards.
Yin Shen held the fossil in his hand and was knocked out like a rag.
In the pool of blood, Shen Yin’s eyes gradually blurred.
“Who is driving so smoothly, can drive all the way from the main road to the lobby of the restaurant.”
When I saw it clearly, I was suddenly relieved.
“It turned out to be Tesla!”
