The reason he had gone through so much effort to enter the Kunxu Domain was to find the passageway leading to the Azure in order to reach Luo Ruoxin.
Since there was a passageway above the elevated platform and the 'deities' were able to pass through, not to mention the fact that the mercury-like spiritual energy leaking out from the void came directly from the Azure, could that actually be the way he had been seeking all along?
"To be honest, I don't really know." Ancient Sage Yan Qing shook his head.
"I see… Then, do you know how Kong shi left the Kunxu Domain to enter the Azure?"
"Regarding that…" Ancient Sage Yan Qing's face reddened in embarrassment.
In truth, most of Kong shi's direct disciples did not even know of his departure back then, let alone a junior who came many generations later like him.
Wang Mang (45 BC - 23 AD) and Liu Xiu (5 BC - 57 AD) are both emperors around the Han dynasty era. Wang Mang usurped the throne for a short amount of time and established the Xin dynasty, only for Liu Xiu (Emperor Guangxu) to come by, overthrow the Xin dynasty, and reinstate the Han dynasty in its place.
Wang Mang has been jokingly said to be a transmigrator by the netizens due to the various policies he has implemented and the ideals he embraced, which are extremely at odds with the culture back in that era and strangely similar to the values of the current society.
For example, he attempted to push forward a 'coin system', which made use of worthless metals designed in an elaborately beautiful manner as a currency, which differed from the currency system back then where metals were traded based on the perceived value of the material itself.
At the same time, he has been depicted to have deep abhorrence for the slavery and caste system back then, and one of the policies he implemented was to stop the sales of slaves and maids.
Not only so, he proposed the creation of government agencies to manage the markets and control the prices. Something that might be more relatable, he was also the one who created the vernier caliper, which looks the exact same as what we still use in classrooms nowadays.
