He flipped through it and searched for a while. This thing was rather
common in this world, the scientific developments meant that the research
about the inner workings of practically anything was frankly shocking.
Naturally, this world also had Resonance research, but it was not nearly
so advanced as to use Resonance to make algorithms, because physicists
now were already researching the even more advanced photonic computers.
These used pure light as the main care of the computer’s calculations,
so compared to quantum computers, these photonic computers functioned on
a completely different principle.
Quantum computers had the advantage in solving complicated problems with
more variables, as well as in modular computing. By calculating according
to quantum modules as the singular unit, it actually also involved some
separate principles in Resonance regarding quantum interference. But it
was not as advanced as how the Totem World utilized Resonance.
Photonic computers had the advantage in traditional computing basics, as
they could greatly increase the computing speed, reduce the usage of
energy, and worked at far faster speeds than before. They could compute
many operations at the same time, and were very good at correcting
mistakes as well. Even if there were some small mistakes in the process,
these would not affect the final result. With a higher-level aim in mind,
the physicists naturally would not bring their attention back to
Resonance research, with its vague future.
Even though Resonance research had many benefits for long distance
communication, this long distance communications had long ago been
realized through material-energy conversion, so there was even less need
for this research. They could convert material directly into energy, and
could thus leap across long distances, reaching their destinations
directly, before turning back to material. It was far superior to
backward technology such as Resonance.
Garen broke out of his thoughts, and carefully picked out an egg-like
stone with red fire patterns from a pile of materials. The stone was very
small, just about the size of a fingernail, and seemed to be the egg of
Garen shook the egg slightly, and tapped it onto his fist lightly.
A crack immediately appeared on the stone.
“This is it, the Resonance substitute, the hardened rhizome of a
Garen was more than just a martial artist, he was also a powerful
scientist, and experimenter.
Using Resonance skills to create a core, and controlling multiple cannon
fodder creatures at the same time, only he would dare think of something
like that, and under these circumstances where they had no high-tech
gadgets as well.
“This is not a project I can complete in a couple of days…” Garen
put the rhizome aside, and suddenly woke up from his experimenting fever.
“In that case, I can analyze and distinguish the signal coming from the
Energy Machine Imprint, then I can reduce it. It should be okay if there
is just a small portion of the control signals released, right? Although
this will influence the Big Wild Wolf’s logical thinking skills, it
will also greatly increase the number I can control.”
Garen had once gotten an Energy Machinist, or rather, an ancient
Modulation Engineer’s training method from the Honorable Noble, it was
called Glowing Radiance.
There were some explanations and information about this in that book.
“Reduce the control power on one single unit, spread it up, and do your
best to increase the number…”
Garen’s will entered his Energy Machine Imprint, and started to analyze
the functions and principles behind each signal.
It was as though many tentacles bounced out of the Energy Machine
Imprint, and each tentacle was a different color. When the cannon fodder
creatures saw each type of tentacle appear, they would perform the
corresponding action as though they had received orders. This was a
secretive manipulation skill using light to differentiate the functions.
Of course, that was just a simile, the actual process was a lot more
complicated than that.
But to Garen as he was now, with the help of the Energy Machine Imprint,
his computing skills were already thrice the original value, and his
computing skills were already far, far more advanced than regular Energy
Machinists. Once they were tripled, that speed was beyond the human
Within two short hours, Garen had completely analyzed all of the
complicated signals, splitting them into many parts. The main control
Willpower only used up one-tenth of the Energy Machine Imprint’s
Control Mod, and most of the remaining controlling aspects were mostly
some free, meaningless controls. Stuff like controlling their eating,
excreting, sleeping, or even the playing or healing they would have as
pets, Garen was totally capable of using the Distorted Seed’s innate
ability to replace these, and it made them even stronger.
He directly turned off some useless parts, and only maintained the basic
main controls, some basic commands such as attack, stop, move freely,
rest, and so on. This also saved up on a lot of the Control Mod’s
After he used his Willpower to trim the Energy Machine Imprint again,
Garen instantly felt his control of the Big Wild Wolf fade considerably.
Garen barked at the Big Wild Wolf softly.
There was no response. The thing continued to stand there, occasionally
sticking out its tongue, looking really dumb as it stared at Garen.
Garen tried again.
This time, there was a response.
The Big Wild Wolf walked around in a circle and then found a spot that
looked very comfortable to lie down, its whole body relaxing, and quickly
entering rest mode.
“As I thought, the controls were greatly reduced and lightened. Maybe I
can try to control several, in that case.”
Garen brought his gaze back to the BiochEnergy Machine Imprintcal Pool.
Suddenly, there was a slight tremor from outside.
“Something happened again?” Garen gave the Big Wild Wolf an order to
follow him, and the man and wolf ran out of the basement, looking at the
large gate in the distant wall ahead, where someone seemed to be yelling
The two people on the right who seemed to be keeping watch over Garen’s
basement burst into a sprint, running towards the city wall.
“What happened!?” asked Garen, rushing over and grabbing one of them.
That person was first given a shock by the large wolf, and then he raised
his gun to shoot it, but Garen immediately pressed his arm down.
“That’s my pet! Tell me, quick, what happened?”
“It’s the Invisible Predators, they’ve come in again!” The man
could not break free from Garen’s arm, and his face turned red. “Let
go of me! I need to save them!” he yelled.
“Do you want to save them, or do you want to die?” said Garen coldly.
He turned around to look at the Big Wild Wolf behind him, using his
Willpower to code it as No 1 quickly.
“Follow him, and attack these creatures.”
Garen directly gave it an image of the Predators using his Willpower, and
that included Invisible Predators.
The Big Wild Wolf howled softly in reply, and followed behind that man.
Only then did Garen let go of the man, letting him run away. At the same
time, Garen moved towards the direction of the gate and the wall,
constantly vigilant of the surroundings, in case someone mistakenly shot
at the Big Wild Wolf.
Leo City initially had thirty-four villagers, but now there were only
seven or eight left. With East Perrin and Malone, they had exactly ten,
and their manpower looked sparse standing on the wall. It was extremely
empty, and they were far too small compared to the city that could take
several hundred residents.
Right now, they stood on the wall by the main gate, spread out and
vigilant of the situation beneath them as they held their guns, but there
was despair in most of their eyes.
Ten of them was not enough to guard all the checkpoints on the wall. If
they guarded the front, the back would be left wide open.
When Garen brought two people and a Big Wild Wolf to them, they were all
The Big Wild Wolf followed closely beside Garen. Its body looked to be
almost two meters, its appearance ferocious, similar to other mutated
beasts, and it did not attack anyone at all. But no one could remember if
anyone reared such a fierce dog in the town.
Only Malone and East Perrin showed a glimmer of hope. East Perrin got off
the wall of her own accord, and greeted Garen.
“This is the hope you mentioned?” she asked quietly.
“Yes.” Garen nodded. “There will be more than one, and it can
replace the dead men to patrol the town. It’s very fast too, and can be
maintained for a long time. One of these would be equal to at least two
Joy flashed through East Perrin’s eyes.
“How many more can you make?”
“Depends on the time and materials,” replied Garen softly.
East Perrin nodded, and quickly ran to explain the Big Wild Wolf to the
others. She did not say much, she just told them that this big thing
would help protect the town. Although the townspeople were wondering
where it came from, this was not the time to sweat the small stuff.
And Malone seemed to have an inkling of a guess, in his seventy or eighty
years of life, he had indeed seen something similar.
He approached Garen, and while East Perrin was on the other side
introducing the Big Wild Wolf, he asked Garen quietly.
Garen paused, and then smiled.
“You know too?”
“I saw one when I was young, it’s a very impressive profession, most
people can’t even meet them.” Malone nodded.
Just when everyone seemed to have a glimmer of hope.
Suddenly the Big Wild Wolf abruptly pounced at an empty space to the
right, its sharp teeth and claws slicing through the wind, as it clawed
at the air.
There was a tear, and something seemed to get caught, instantly torn in
half by the sharp claws.
“Invisible Predators!!” someone gasped.
Only then did the rest realize that the thing pressed under the Big Wild
Wolf’s paw was an Invisible Predator that had snuck in. Its
invisibility had been torn apart, and it showed itself, the Big Wild Wolf
chomping down on its corpse’s flesh and blood.
It never occurred to Garen that the Big Wild Wolf might actually eat the
Invisible Predator’s corpse directly.
This was an unexpected change, but he sensed it carefully and found that
the Big Wild Wolf’s genetic structure seemed to be even more stable
after eating, echoing back a signal that lasted even longer. So he made
no attempt to stop it.
“There seem to be some accidental changes that I can’t control.”
Garen carefully observed the way the Big Wild Wolf ate the Invisible
Predator, to see if there were any signs of it being infected by the
radiation disease on the Invisible Predator.
It seemed to be due to the Distorted Seed, but the Big Wild Wolf seemed
completely unaffected. It ate up most of the corpse in a few large bites,
and even crunched up the bone, chewing it and swallowing down, without
“Kill them freely, but do not leave this area.” Garen gave the Big
Wild Wolf the order to only hunt the Invisible Predators within the town,
and then to rest once it was tired.
He watched as the Big Wild Wolf made a few large leaps, quickly vanishing
behind a stone house in the town.
There was another low scream, and yet another Invisible Predator bit the
While it sent a chill down the spines of the survivors, they also felt a
long-lost sense of security.
