The grey mist has started to appear around as I entered quite deeper into the forbidden zone, the deepest anyone had entered since the strangeness of this Forbidden Zone has begun.
The Cosmic Energy in this part is quite dense, and it covered me fully, trying to drill inside me, but the sealing of my armor is too tight for any energy to seep in.
On the way, I observed how this energy applies to pressure directly dependent on the level, not one's battle power. Ashlyn and Me are at Duke Stage, but we could easily kill above-average Prince Stage powerhouses.
It made me think; there may be a sentient thing involve in whatever is happening, but this sentient thing is not intelligent. Even dumb monsters could identify aura but not the battle power; as I said, to measure battle power, one requite intelligence.
It is my hypothesis alone and one of the theories mentioned in the report that the academy made. Seeing all proof, one would be an idiot not to come to this conclusion.
There is another contradicting theory in the report too, which many people will be more inclined to believe that this is just the Cosmic Energy nature.
Cosmic Energy could be said on the weirdest energy out there, and its nature depends on the layer in which it is filtered.
I say space gap; it does not imply an actual space that would be catastrophic if real Cosmic Energy enters the world. Space Gap usually imply to place where the fabric of the world is a little thin.
The world's fabric had hundreds of thousands, millions of layers, and through which energy of the cosmos filtered by the world. The mana we used is also one type of Cosmic Energy, filtered and refined by the world to suit the organisms that live with it.
Sometimes the fabric became thin, to which lessor filtered energy came out, which is cosmic energy, and what property it will have is depend upon the layer it is being filtered. This is not the perfect theory, but it is close to one, and most people accept it.
"Boy, let me tell you, the strangeness your are experiencing is not a work of filtered Cosmic Energy but something else."
A voice within me rang out, the voice which I hadn't heard for quite a while and had not thought, I will hear it for a few more years, and honestly, I had nearly forgotten about a powerful being living inside me.
"It is sentient being then?" I asked, keeping spiked heartbeat steady. When its voice rang out inside me, I had gotten quite shocked and barely stopped myself from yelping out like a little girl.
"No, the strangeness is neither a work of Cosmic Energy nor of any sentient being; it is work of something in between." It explained, and I could hear a faint excitement in its voice, which it is trying very hard to control.
"And what is this in-between?" I asked back, "Hehe, you will know about it when you see it." It said. I wanted to ask it back again, but I know it
